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 connects seamlessly with all LG Hotel TV models, with no additional setup required. Each remote is designed 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.
“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 reality is that many guests eat and drink with the TV remotes in their hands or fall asleep with them in the bed,” he added. “With cleanliness being the utmost concern, especially now, it’s important for hotels to offer remote solutions that minimize risk – and the Clean Remote does just that.”
Offering the Clean Remote is part of LG Business Solutions USA’s new Health Protocol initiative – a suite of products and packages designed to provide commercial businesses with tools to help keep employees and guests safe. “Safety is our primary concern, and LG is investing significantly in supporting our customers’ business needs during the pandemic,” Kosla concluded.
