IT Hygiene

NJC provides specialist IT hygiene services to clean bacteria, germs and dust from office IT equipment and telephones.

Hygienic office environments can be difficult to achieve. Bacteria and viruses are more easily passed between employees with the increase in open plan workspaces, agile working and hot-desking, particularly if all areas are not regularly cleaned.

When someone is infected with a cold or virus the surfaces that they touch during the day become germ transfer points, because some viruses can survive on surfaces for up to 72 hours. IT devices such as telephones, desktop equipment and networked tools, such as photocopiers and printers, are a major source of transferring germs, which can result in illnesses transferring rapidly between employees.

Research has shown that 6 out of 10 illnesses begin at work and telephones, keyboards and computer mice often contain a higher density of microbes than the average toilet seat. A desk is capable of supporting 10 million microbes and the average office contains 20,961 microbes per square inch.

The bacteria and viruses can cause sickness, diarrhoea, respiratory illnesses, skin infections, cold sores and other problems. Thorough hand washing is important in reducing transmission but regular IT hygiene cleaning is also key to preventing bacteria and viruses spreading between co-workers.

Dust tends to build up in office environments and accumulation on cooling fans and computer CPUs can lead to overheating, with a greatly increased chance of data loss and equipment damage. Keeping your IT equipment dust free through regular professional cleaning can improve performance and increase its life, hence reducing the spend on renewals.

NJC specialises in removing harmful bacteria, viruses and dust from workspaces to minimise the spread of infection, reduce absenteeism, improve productivity and reduce costs. Our lasting treatments give you protection day after day and our technicians are trained to the highest standards to ensure a consistently high standard of service delivery. Full risk assessments are undertaken prior to work commencing.

We will implement the IT hygiene cleaning by:

  • Carrying out an initial survey and developing a planned schedule of work to ensure minimum disruption to your staff and a systematic approach to working through each location. For large premises this may result in a continuous week-by-week schedule.
  • Utilising dedicated, fully trained hygienists, under the supervision of a Team Leader.
  • Specific training and induction schedule, tailored to your offices and your specific requirements.

NJC also carries out specialist data centre cleaning.
