The industrial work environment is hazardous to the health of computer equipment. Keyboards and mice are exposed to dust, water and other fluids and a variety of other issues that can affect their ability to perform. Additionally, equipment used on open work floors is usually shared by many workers, so the germs that are on the surfaces of keyboards and mice are easily transmitted from person to person.
Wash the Keyboard and Mouse to Completely Disinfect
If hand-washing is the most basic and best way to rid our hands of germs, is it also the best way to get germs out of the nooks and crannies of the things we touch every day, like keyboards and mice? It is. By far, experts recommend that the equipment we touch and use every day be thoroughly washed, not just sprayed, to get rid of the most germs in the most complete manner possible.
Wash my keyboard? Wash my mouse? Can I do that? Not with most keyboards and mice. Even the so-called spill-proof keyboards can take only a limited amount of moisture before they just stop working.
Spill-Proof is Not Waterproof
Only Seal Shield™ keyboards and mice with Silver Seal™ technology meet the tough IP68 submersibility standards. These keyboards and mice use the exclusive Seal Shield waterproofing technology that make them the only fully submersible and dishwasher safe products on the market. These keyboards can even be washed in a diluted bleach solution to disinfect the board thoroughly. Seal Shield Keyboards and mice are Silver Seal™ protected. They contain an antimicrobial, fungistatic agent which protects the product and keeps it cleaner, greener and fresher by inhibiting the growth of microbial bacteria, mold, mildew and fungi on the product's surface.
