Not all our house guests are visible to the naked eye. There is a group of unwelcome guests that reside in our home without us being aware of it, and in places we never thought possible, like our video game controllers. Have you ever been intrigued by the number of germs that your video game controllers may have? Have you ever even cleaned them? Do you wash your hands after using your video game controllers, or do you just leave them as they are and then touch your face? If you answered yes to one or more questions, then your video game controllers may need an Electronic Equipment Sanitizing. Read along to learn why.

You may not be aware of this, but your video game controllers are filthy and disgusting. Studies have shown that they have five times more germs and bacteria than your toilet seat. Pretty gross, right? You may be wondering how they can be dirtier than your bathroom if you wash your hands every day. The truth is that you can wash your hands a thousand times a day, and your video game controllers will still be dirty. Why? Because your controllers can attract grime and dirt.

Think for a moment about your household cleaning procedures. Which items are cleaned and which items are not? What cleaning products do you use, and what methods do you use to clean those items? Got the big picture now? If you do, you may have realized by now that items like your video game controllers, TV remote control, smartphone, and your light switches don't get cleaned (at least, not often), nor are they cleaned in a proper way. While they are not cleaned, they accumulate small particles of dust and grime. House dust contains thousands of microbes. Imagine all those microbes accumulating in your video game controller and other items that are not frequently cleaned. Besides not being cleaned regularly, people sometimes eat, sneeze, cough, and sweat while using the controllers. That is another way the controllers get build up with germs, viruses, and bacteria. We bet that if you knew the number of germs a controller can have, you would never touch it again. A study has found that a video game controller contains an average of 7,863 germs per 100 square centimeters – that is five times more than a toilet seat. Yes, it gets pretty gross!
