Due to COVID-19, TSI has recently received a lot of questions from customers about how to properly clean and how to disinfect mobile devices. Here are a few electronic and mobile device disinfection and cleaning guidelines.
There is a difference between cleaning and disinfecting a device.
Cleaning simply refers to the removal of germs, dirt, and other grime from surfaces. It can be helpful in keeping devices clean and functional, but it will not kill germs or viruses. Cleaning will reduce the number of germs in order to lower the risk of infection, but virus protection is not guaranteed.
Disinfecting is a process that uses chemicals to kill germs. Although disinfecting does not 100% guarantee protection from viruses, it does greatly reduce the risk.
Below are specific instructions on how to clean and how to disinfect mobile devices
Is it OK to use a disinfectant on my iPhone? Using a 70 percent isopropyl alcohol wipe, 75 percent ethyl alcohol wipe, or Clorox Disinfecting Wipes, you may gently wipe the exterior surfaces of your iPhone. Don't use products containing bleach or hydrogen peroxide.
Mix a solution that is 70% alcohol and 30% water and put it in the spray bottle. Then remove the case from your phone or tablet, spritz the cloth with the solution, and thoroughly wipe down your phone. Do not reuse the cloth.
