Protecting Your Printers: 3 Quick Maintenance Tips

Protect your Printer

Your printers are an important part of your business. They help you communicate, collaborate, and grow--but they can't do it alone. Today, we'll show you three quick maintenance tips that will give your printers the care they deserve.

Taking Care of Your Investments

Printers aren't just necessary and helpful tools in your workflow--they're also investments. In order to make sure they last longer, work better and keep doing exactly what you need them to do, they need a little help from you--and the good news is that it's easy to get into the habit of printer maintenance once you know what to do. All it takes is a little bit of knowledge about your unique machine and its individual needs.

Here are a few quick maintenance tips to get you started!

  • #1: Place printers properly.

You might not think about this at first, but the truth is that where you put your printers is just as important as what you do with them. Placing a machine in front of a heater, for example, could damage the machine and shorten its life, but it could also be dangerous if the device overheats--so make sure your printers are placed properly!

  • #2: Don't dodge cleaning duty.

Cleaning your printers regularly is a huge part of maintenance, and in this case, a little bit of regular work goes a long way. All you have to do is use a can of compressed air to clean the printer (inside and outside) and then vacuum up any dust you see.

  • #3: Schedule routine maintenance.

Printer "check-ups" can save you a lot of time, money, and stress in the long run. Contact a professional who can help you make sure everything is running smoothly and suggest any maintenance practices that will keep your printer healthy and happy for years to come.
