Printer maintenance can be a hassle if you don’t know how to clean a copier. However, cleaning is one of the best maintenance practices to enhance your copier’s efficiency and extend lifespan. Unfortunately, it’s the last thing most professionals remember, yet it must feature in your to-do list. We’ll show you how to clean your copier appropriately.

Copiers and printers have small crevices, gears, and rollers that don’t need dust. However, the machine will experience servicing issues when the copier parts get dusty. In addition, the dust will reduce image quality when copying and scanning. But with regular cleaning, you’ll prevent dust from compromising print quality.

If you don’t know how to clean printers, worry not. Here is how to clean your copier. 

Proper Cleaning Tools 

The first step of cleaning a copier is to assemble the necessary cleaning tools. These include antibacterial sprays that can clean and disinfect your copier.

You may also need disposable gloves, disinfectant wipes, a glass cleaner, a lint-free cloth, and a microfiber cloth. So, you can use disinfectant wipes or microfiber cloths to clean high-touch surfaces and control panels. However, clean exterior surfaces only.

What Not To Use 

Please don’t use abrasives and chemicals like bleach, ammonia, peroxide, acetone, or other cleaning materials that may damage the copier finishes or electrical components. Instead, use alcohol-based cleaners with not more than 70% isopropyl alcohol. Also, you should wait for the copier surfaces to dry before switching them on after cleaning.

Clean Carefully

Cleaning a copier involves the use of liquid cleaning detergents. However, you must not spray the cleaning solutions directly on the copier machine. Instead, dampen a soft, lint-free, or microfiber cloth in a cleaning solution and use it to clean your printer gently. You should not scrub the surfaces vigorously, as that may cause damage.
