Keeping Your AV Products Clean & Safe

Keeping Your AV Products Clean & Safe

April 7, 2020

Touch screens and other audio visual equipment are found almost everywhere: work, home, schools and government offices. Given the current situation facing all of our customers, we wanted to provide simple steps on how to clean and disinfect AV equipment to help protect the people who use them.

Keeping our customers and their families safe from the transmission of COVID-19 is our first priority. Per the WHO and CDC recommendations, frequent cleaning of high touch surfaces is important.

Depending on the device, application, and location there may be times when it becomes necessary to clean your audio visual product/s. Frequently touched devices such as touchscreens and button panels require regular cleaning to ensure their surfaces remain sanitary. Plastic surfaces and cosmetic finishes can be damaged by long term exposure to chemicals; therefore, we recommend the following guidelines when cleaning our products.

***A bleach-based or chlorine solution of any kind must not be used on audio visual products***

All products can safely be cleaned with 70% concentration or higher Isopropyl Alcohol

Use Disinfectant Cleaners That:

  • Are non-ammonium based (e.g. contains no ammonium chloride)
  • Contain 2% or less sodium hypochlorite (e.g. 2% bleach, 98% water)
  • Regardless of the device, it is important to follow these general guidelines when cleaning:

Follow these steps to clean your equipment: 

  1. If possible, unplug the device.
  2. Spray the cleaner on a lint-free cloth until the cloth is damp.

***Do not spray the cleaner directly onto the product***

  1. Gently clean the product surface using the cloth and dry any marks or streaks with another dry, soft, lint free cloth.

Your health and safety are our top priority. Keeping devices clean, especially those in high-traffic environments and high-use applications, is a crucial step in minimizing the spread of infections. Please contact us if you have any questions about the guidelines outlined on this page or if you have a question about cleaning a specific product.

Our goal is to make sure we’re doing all we can to keep our customers and their families safe. For more information and updates on approved cleaners check please get in touch with us at 250.861.5424/800.761.7928 or at [email protected]
