Most companies are dependent on the secure and efficient operation of their IT systems. It therefore makes sense to look after these valuable assets by keeping them clean and in good working order.
A smart office with clean equipment, free of ink marks, adhesive residue, dirt, dust and debris also has a positive effect on staff morale and creates a positive impression with clients and visitors. It signifies corporate pride and conveys an image of professionalism.
A sticky keyboard and mouse slow down keystrokes and reduce operator speed. Dust and dirt sucked in by computer fans builds up and gradually reduces the effectiveness of the cooling system, which can ultimately lead to overheating and total failure.
There are also potentially serious health implications associated with using dirty equipment. Analysis of a keyboard normally reveals remnants of food and drink, hair, nails and lots of dead skin! Recent research conducted by the University of Arizona has shown that telephones harbor up to 25,127 microbes per square inch, keyboards 3,295 microbes and computer mice 1,676. Considering a toilet seat contains only 49 microbes per square inch you can now begin to see the real cost of not maintaining the cleanliness of your office equipment.

We recommend computer cleaning is performed outside of office hours but we realize that this does not suit everyone, so we will happily visit at any hour of the day or night. We also offer a silent cleaning service, which is ideal in call centre environments where you do not want loud vacuums whirring away in the background while your staff are trying to talk to customers/clients.
If price is your only concern then you could speak to your office cleaning company, who will happily provide a very poor service for a 'good' price. If on the other hand you want the best computer cleaning service available, fully backed up by references from a broad base of existing clients then AMCS is the company for you.
