The Benefits of Seal Shield Washable and Waterproof Keyboards for Schools

Covid-19 and other common illnesses have caused increased curiosity and research into how various microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses are transmitted from person to person. The return of students to school calls for even more precautions to combat the spread of pathogens and help keep students and faculty healthy. Schools are one of the most common places where illnesses spread rapidly. Sickness can be spread to teachers, students, and staff. All these individuals can then go on to infect others outside the school.

Computer Keyboards: A Common Site for Bacteria Contamination

Computer keyboards for schools can become major sites for the spread of germs, especially when they are shared between multiple students in a single day. Computer keyboards in public settings are often overlooked in frequent cleaning practices and in schools, it is no different. Most keyboards used in schools are shared in the computer lab. This provides an increased chance for the equipment to become a breeding ground for bacteria in the computer labs, with a large volume of students using them frequently.

Research carried out at the University of Arizona found that the average computer has almost 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet seat. A similar study cited in the Journal of School Nursing showed that the number of microorganisms on computer keyboards in elementary school classrooms is three times more when the keyboards are not disinfected.

School children are less likely to be careful than the general public. They could sneeze without covering their mouths, use the restroom without washing their hands, or forget to sanitize their hands. Therefore, more measures have to be put in place to ensure the health & safety of students as they return to school by ensuring their environments are continuously disinfected. However, disinfecting most computer keyboards is no easy feat, considering the fact that they are electronic equipment that is not waterproof and must be handled with care. This creates a need for computer keyboards that can be cleaned thoroughly and frequently without causing any damage. Seal Shield keyboards are capable of meeting the cleaning needs for schools and other vulnerable environments. Seal Shield keyboards are waterproof. They are specially designed to combat the spread of germs through adequate and frequent cleaning.
