How Dirty is Your Cell Phone?

So why stop by any of the Phone Medic stores for FREE cell phone cleaning?

Well, according to Kevin Loria, Tech Insider, most cell phones host a wide array of bacterias that can be a contributor to flu bugs, respiratory infections and other illnesses. Think about it.

A study done by Deloitte showed that on average, people touch their cell phone 46 times a day and smartphones (iPhones, Androids, Samsung Galaxy devices) several times an hour. Teenagers check their cell phones far more often.

Kevin states that every time you touch your phone, you transfer bacteria that you’ve picked up as you’ve gone about your day. You might keep your phone in your bag, on your desk, or in your pocket, but chances are it spends an increasingly large portion of the day in one very dirty place: your hand. You hand may include little microbes you’ve encountered while clinging to subway poles, opening the bathroom door, or touching your kitchen sponge. Plus, anytime you speak or cough with your phone near your mouth, you’ll load it up with whatever happens to be living in your respiratory tract.

A microbiologist and pathologist, Philip Tierno, states “It is wise to periodically clean your phone. I clean mine at the end of each day. If you’re not cleaning your phone, you should.”
