Similar to an automobile, office machines need regular maintenance in order to increase its longevity and life expectancy.  All offices want to use their equipment efficiently, so it only makes sense to properly care for the office’s copiers.

Not only will maintaining your copy machine ensure a longer life, but it will also avoid major problems and can relieve the company from serious headaches in the long run.  Below are a few things to consider to maintain office machines:

  • Turn the machine off before any servicing takes place.  Hurting yourself during a repair would defeat the purpose.
  • Vacuum out the machine with a special toner vacuum.  Wipe down parts that have a build up of residue.
  • Defend the business’  copiers and printers by using a surge protector that is rated at 1200 joules or higher.  This will protect the machine from any surges, burnouts or lightning.
  • Use decent quality paper because cheap paper will produce more fiber and residue that gathers inside the machine.

Although these are simple maintenance measures, they can go a long way in increasing the life expectancy of the equipment and reducing the chance of a failure.  If a machine is encountering a problem, the best thing to do is contact your Fort Collins copier repair company.  If you have any questions about copier maintenance or copier repair don’t hesitate to contact us today!
