At Lynn Imaging your health and safety is our priority. With public health concerns over the COVID-19 disease spreading worldwide, we understand the importance of knowing how to effectively clean your HP devices to maintain a healthy and safe work environment.
Please note, the CDC recommends cleaning surfaces, followed by disinfection, as a best practice for the prevention of coronavirus and other viral respiratory illnesses in households and community settings.
HP recommends the following guide to properly clean your HP Devices:
1. Wear disposable gloves when cleaning and disinfecting surfaces.
2. Turn off the device and disconnect AC power (for printers, devices should be unplugged from the outlet). For other wireless devices (when necessary) remove batteries. Never clean a product while it is powered on or plugged in.
3. Disconnect any external devices.
4. Moisten a microfiber cloth with a mixture of 70% isopropyl alcohol / 30% water. Do not use fibrous materials, such as paper towels or toilet paper. The cloth should be moist, but not dripping wet.
5. Do not spray any liquids directly onto the product.
6. Gently wipe the moistened cloth on the surfaces to be cleaned. Do not allow any moisture to drip into areas like keyboards, display panels or USB ports.
7. Start with the display or printer control panel (if applicable) and end with any flexible cables, like power, keyboard and USB cables.
8. When cleaning a display screen or printer control panel, carefully wipe in one direction, moving from the top of the display to the bottom.
9. Ensure surfaces have completely air-dried before turning the device on after cleaning. Wait until completely dry to plugin and power on devices.
10. After disinfecting, copier/scanner glass should be cleaned again using an office glass cleaner sprayed onto a clean rag to remove streaking. Streaking on the copier/scanner glass from the CDC recommended cleaning solution could cause copy quality defects.
11. Gloves should be discarded after each cleaning. Clean hands immediately after gloves are removed.
