Addressing health concerns and confidence of American travelers, LG Business Solutions USA is offering hotel operators a free “Clean Remote” with every new LG hotel TV. The special remote control is designed to be safer thanks to a non-porous, sealed membrane surface that can reduce bacteria and germs by as much as 99 percent compared to traditional remotes, according to Clean Remote LLC.
“The Clean Remote solution pairs perfectly with LG hotel TVs to provide guests a safer in-room experience and some peace of mind,” said Mike Kosla, Vice President of Hospitality, LG Business Solutions USA. “TV remotes are the most touched object in a hotel room, making them a hotbed for germs and bacteria, so this is an attractive solution for hoteliers, especially now.”
While the CDC recommends that hotels clean and disinfect remote controls daily, standard remotes have gaps and crevices around the buttons that can harbor dirt and germs, said Clean Remote LLC President Michael Monsky. “Because of this, they are nearly impossible to clean properly and may be damaged by liquid cleaner, The Clean Remote’s unique membrane surface is made to be easily cleaned and sanitized,” he said.
The Clean Remote connects seamlessly with all LG Hotel TV models, with no additional setup required. Each remote is specifically designed with staff and guests in mind with a simple layout and large, high visibility keys. Its spill-proof design prevents liquid damage, while its “not for home use” designation discourages theft and its hidden battery cover prevents battery loss.
