Do You Know How Dirty Your Cell Phone Is? Learn How to Properly Sanitize Your Cell Phone

During this period of time when it is highly critical that you properly sanitize your cell phone that your cell phone is kept sanitized and clean from potential Coronavirus transmission. According to the CDC, they are still unsure as to exactly how long the Coronavirus can survive on surfaces, but some studies have shown that it can survive for several days. In any case, it is important to be knowledgeable on how to correctly keep your phone sanitized, and how to sanitize it without causing any damage to the cell phone.

How To Properly Sanitize Your Phone

The first general rule of thumb when it comes to cleaning your phone is to avoid using the same astringent cleaners that are used in normal household cleaning. Avoid cleaning solutions like pure bleach, metal cleaners or any bathroom cleaners. You are not necessarily looking for “scrubbing power” or anything that is abrasive.
The most effective way to sanitize and clean your phone is to use a disinfectant with a high concentration of isopropyl alcohol. This is also known as rubbing alcohol. While there is a 70% Isopropyl alcohol available, it is advisable to use 99% Isopropyl alcohol if available. If you do not have either of these, you can also use Hydrogen Peroxide. If none of these cleaning solutions are available, you can use any standard cleaning. However, always avoid using any cleaning solution with bleach.
Once you have the right cleaning solution, it is best to use a microfiber cloth, lint-free cloth or any type of cleaning rag that isn’t full of dust and is clean and dry.
Here are some steps to take when you want to properly clean and sanitize your phone:
  1. Remove the cell phone case and power your phone off.
  2. Use a microfiber cloth to gently wipe the exterior of your phone.
  3. Lightly dampen a lint-free cloth with isopropyl alcohol. You also use disinfecting wipes that are safe for topical use on electronic devices. Gently wipe down every surface of our phone, avoiding any contact with the ports.
  4. Use a clean cloth to remove any excess moisture.
  5. Repeat the same steps for your phone case to remove all traces of viruses.

The Best Way to Sanitize Your Phone: UV Light

While disinfecting your phone in the steps mentioned above is an effective way to keep your phone free of germs, perhaps the most effective way is to sanitize it using a UV light. This is the best way because it doesn’t require the use of any cleaning solutions. It simply uses the power of UV light to remove, kill and destroy all forms of bacteria. There are several products on the market that will do this. If you do not have access to one, bring your cell phone to iSquad Repair and we’ll do it for you.

iPhone Screen Replacement: OEM vs After-Market Screens. What You Need to Know.

A brand new iPhone has a screen and LCD built by Apple according to strict standards and the highest quality materials. The price of the iPhone is a reflection of this level of quality. When you are in need of a screen repair, there are several options available to you to replace the screen. One option is to replace it using a screen that is of the same quality as the original Apple screen. This is also referred to as  “OEM” , or Original Equipment Manufacturer.
