Your office runs off multiple machines that make your work possible. It makes sense then that you would want them to last as long as possible. Taking care of your devices will ensure they produce needed output without downtime.

1. Multifunction Copiers and Printers

Office machines like multifunction copiers and printers are used a lot. For this reason, they are susceptible to paper jams and worn out parts. Maintaining these devices can help prevent frustrating issues that cause downtime. Testing motors, updating software, and performing routine device cleaning are all necessary steps. Wipe down your multifunction copiers and printers to remove dust and schedule monthly tests for any arising issues.

2. Computers

In today’s technologically driven world, our computers are the source of a majority of our work output. To make sure your computer is always working correctly, adhere to these maintenance guidelines. First, keep ad blockers and other security software updated. Second, keep the machine free of dust that can cause hiccups in the use of the keyboard.

3. Office Projectors

An office projector is not used quite as often as other office machines which means it might be forgotten and thus fall victim to abandonment. To take care of an office projector keep it clean so that images are clear and readable. You can include office projectors in your office supply ordering schedule so you can check if you need a new lightbulb.

4. Paper Shredders

Paper shredders are essential to keeping data secure. Letting your shredder run down can lead to additional security problems. To maintain the paper shredder, apply oil to the metal to prevent the paper from stalling in the shredder.

The best way to keep your office machines running well is to set up a schedule that allows for regular maintenance. Keeping multifunction copiers and other devices clean will ensure their longevity is maximized. To learn more about taking care of your office machines, call us today!
