Cleaning and disinfecting keyboards and mice

 

Best practice

The best practice for cleaning and disinfecting our keyboards and mice, including the cleaning frequency and method,
will depend on the specific use and conditions in your hospital or clinical establishment.

Your Infection Control Team can give you specific guidance on which cleaning protocols should be established in your facility.
In general terms, we recommend treating our products as you would treat any other high frequency touch surface in the same room.
On these pages you can verify if the cleaning methods you wish to follow and the disinfectant you intend to use are compatible with our products

Approved disinfectants

  • Alcohol based
  • Chlorine based, up to 100,000 ppm (10%) bleach content
  • Formaldehyde based, up to 370,000 ppm (37%) formaldehyde content
  • Glutaraldehyde based
  • Oxidizing, such as Hydrogen Peroxide, up to 30,000 ppm (3%) content
  • Phenol based
  • Quaternary Ammonium, up to 20,000 ppm (2%) content

Restrictions

  • Always follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer of the cleaning product.
  • Do not use petroleum based cleaning fluids nor Acetone or abrasive cleaning aids and products.
  • Do not use temperature or pressure sterilization.
  • Do not expose the product to temperatures above those indicated in the product manual.
  • Exposing any silicone product to the oils contained in some hand alcohol, hand lotions and other emollients reduces their life span.
    Regular cleaning helps to limit this effect. Such degradation is not covered under warranty.

List of approved cleaners and disinfectants


About our list of approved cleaners and disinfectants The list on the next pages contains products that have been approved by their manufacturers for use on silicone. Although this is the best indication we can give for the product’s suitability as a disinfectant for our keyboards and mice, there will always remain factors of uncertainty regarding the effects it may have on our products either by itself or in combination with other substances to which our products may be exposed in their setting. Therefore, no rights can be claimed from this list and we always advise a test in your facility on a small batch before fully adopting a disinfectant in your overall cleaning and disinfecting protocols. For more detailed information, please contact the manufacturer.
