What Cleaning Solutions To Avoid
You don’t want to be responsible for a broken printer monitor! It’s important to know what your Ricoh touch-screen can’t handle. It’s best to avoid any cleaning solutions that contain Bleach, Ammonia, or other harsh solvents. These may be great for deep cleaning but can cause some serious problems with your monitor screen. Using bleach or ammonia can cloud the touch-screen of your printer, and then would need to be replaced.
What Products Are Best To Clean A Printer?
The good news is that a versatile range of products can be used to clean your printer. Most anti-bacterial wipes or sprays do a sufficient job of getting rid of unwanted germs. If you do decide to use a spray, we recommend NOT to directly spray the anti-bacterial on your printer. Spraying directly on the printer can cause the liquid to get inside the printer, which would lead to mechanical problems.
Use A Paper Towel?
We do not recommend using paper towels, because they can scratch the surface of the printer. We recommend using a lint-free microfiber cloth that keeps your printer safe and gets the job done. If you plan to use a disinfectant wipe, that is safe to use on the printer surface.
Are There Ways To Minimize Contact With Others Using A Public Printer?
The best way to keep a printer clean is by fewer people touching it, right? Our solution to keeping your Ricoh printer touch-free is using a stylus pen when maneuvering the touch-screen print controls. Use the stylus pen to click, then after every use, the pen is the only item that needs a deep clean. This saves the stress of someone not cleaning the printer or not cleaning it properly after it’s used.
In conclusion, the sanitation of your workplace printer is a smart program to put in place as soon as possible.
