Welcome Back

With everyone starting to make a slow return to the office, we think it’s a good idea to give you some hints and tips on cleaning your printer and ensuring it is safe for everyone in the office to use. Although Covid-19 spreading through surfaces is rare, this pandemic has taught us that personal hygiene is important nonetheless and if there are simple steps we can take to ensure a safer environment, we should do it.

The printer is one of the most commonly touched and shared devices in the office. Although a lot of our copiers offer touchless printing solutions, we think it’s important that you know how to clean your devices without causing any kind of damage to the machine. Although printing can be contactless, scanning, faxing and photocopying is not so it’s best to know what to do when it comes to cleaning.

Use the right tools for the job

A lot of common cleaners and disinfectants have the potential to cause damage to the touchscreens and other sensitive areas of the device. We recommend reading the instructions from your particular brand of MFD or printer. We have attached a list of all brands we supply so that you can read what to do directly from the manufacturer.

We hope that you have learnt some useful information that will help you sanitize your photocopier and MFD and put you one step closer to a completely COVID safe office environment.
