REALLY, THEY ARE!
You might be shocked just how dirty your smartphone is, outdoing the typical toilet seat by about 10x. It’s also dirtier than the sole of your shoes or the inside of your pets food dish. Researches reveal that our smartphones carry disease-causing microorganisms and even faecal matter.
Sadly, due to our constant use of smartphones, plus a few other factors, these devices are a hotbed for germs and bacteria. But with the right approach, you can help your customers keep them cleaner.
Here’s what might be hiding on your smartphone:
E. coli / Staphylococcus aureus / Influenza / Clostridium difficile / Streptococcus
Why are smartphones so dirty?
One of the main reasons is routine. The average customer checks their mobile phone approximately 2617 times per day and more active user touched their devices 5427 times per day. This means your customer’s hands are on their smartphones round-the-clock, and they are likely to be with them on nearly every job and activity, perhaps even when they visit the loo.
Hands are capable of accumulating tremendous amounts of germs. From the fingertips to the elbow, you can find an average of 2 and 10 million bacteria.
Another reason that smartphones are so filthy is the heat they generate. Warm conditions are where bacteria thrive. Unfortunately, your customer’s smartphone has its own built-in oven. Holding the device in their hands or storing it in their pocket only add to its already warm environment. Those warm atmospheres mean bacteria can grow and spread.
Smartphones are a breeding ground for a vast range of different organisms; a study identified around 7,000 types of bacteria across 51 smartphone samples. It’s important to note that a lot of these bacteria are naturally occurring, good-for-us bacteria. But there are also harmful bacteria. It’s those pathogenic bacteria and other germs your customers need to beware of.
