One day, in the life of a bank cleaning business, this is going to happen.
It’s late at night, as the owner of a bank cleaning business; you’re making the rounds, emptying trash, vacuuming carpets, cleaning the employee bathroom until it sparkles. And then, disaster strikes.
The bank’s vice president comes running into the bathroom to find you, because as the owner of a bank cleaning business, you’re the expert. The absolute worst has happened. He was just putting the last touches on a special project that’s due in the morning. In an attempt to keep awake, the dedicated person grabbed a forbidden soda or cup of coffee and put it on his desk next to his computer screen. An unguarded gesture, a run-away elbow, and the soda or coffee winds up spilling all over the keyboard.
First and foremost, as the owner of a bank cleaning business, advise the person to turn off the computer immediately. Or at the least disconnect the keyboard. Next, quickly flip the keyboard over and shake it above a neutral surface, like an empty table or countertop, to clear the keyboard of as much liquid as possible.
While the keyboard is still upside down, press a clean cloth or a pad of paper towels on the affected area to absorb yet more liquid. If possible, moisten a cotton ball or the tip of a clean cloth with isopropyl alcohol and run it over the affected area to help dry up any remaining liquid. Inform the vice president, as the owner of a bank cleaning business, that it’s important to leave the keyboard upside down to dry completely—at least 12 hours—before turning it back on.
Assure the dedicated worker—whose company tech person is on vacation, by the way—if they follow these simple steps, they stand a good chance of saving the keyboard.
As a bit of extra customer service, offer to help the grateful vice president find another keyboard.
