We know IT Professionals work tireless hours and are often the recipients of phone calls from clients in a panic because their server is down, their printer doesn’t work, or their email isn’t sending. (We know all of these things could cause your life to go into a tizzy.)
Most IT Professionals know that dust causes a majority of IT and hardware related issues because dust can cause overheating in electronics like mother boards, hard drives, and fan systems. We love our IT Professionals so much that we’re going to let you all in on our little secret that will make an IT Professional’s life much easier. Ready?
The secret is this: The solution isn’t to use a can of compressed air (or air compressor if you’re “super official”) and blast the dust into tomorrow. No. Where do you think all that dust goes? Ahem, into the air and your lungs! Sometimes, you can literally watch it swirl around in the air before landing on the hardware you JUST blasted with compressed air. This doesn’t really solve the problem of dust mitigation. Sure, blasting the dust with a can of compressed air can temporarily fix the problem, but is that really how you want to help your clients? With a temporary fix?
Not only does the Dust Bender help vacuum up the dust you just blasted with compressed air, it also helps create a clean work environment. Your clients will probably thank you for being so thoughtful. You could even use it as a selling tool during your presentations. Try saying something like, “Mr. Customer, I know there’s a lot of IT Professionals out there, but we’re the only ones who promise not to spread dust around your office while cleaning your servers, PCs, or laptops.” It could just be that differentiator you’ve been waiting for!
Worried about electrostatic discharge? We thought of that! We use a special plastic on the Dust Bender and the extension wand that comes with it. This plastic is known as static dissipative, or ESD (electrostatic discharge) Safe. If you are an electronics enthusiast or engineer, you’ll understand that this plastic has a surface resistivity of 10-10 Ohm. If that doesn’t make sense, suffice it to say that you have a better chance of getting struck by lightning than shocking your PC when using this plastic during cleaning.
