How to keep the electronic devices in your office ready for use?

Personal offices are full of high-value electronic devices such as computers and printers, even the router. But did you know that they all need specific care?

Many of us have quickly become accustomed to remote work, so more and more homes have adapted an area to be used as an office, which has become the place where you will now find the most valuable electronic devices. That is why you need to pay special attention to their maintenance so you can extend their useful life and keep them in perfect working condition so they do not break down in the middle of a meeting with your boss.

We will start with some general advice that should be taken with regard to electronic devices:

  • Clean your appliances in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.
  • If you are not going to use them, keep them switched off. This will help you avoid phantom consumption and possible breakdowns or accidents. Multi-socket adaptors will help you switch the devices you use on and off all together (for example, the computer screen, speakers, printer, etc.) so you will not forget to turn any of them off. You should avoid using a single multi-socket adaptor for too many plugs, and never overload it.
  • Any devices you keep in your office but do not use frequently should be put away. Make sure this is always in a dry place, with proper protection and better if it is in their own box.
  • Check the devices carefully: If you detect any anomaly (shocks, cracks, bulges, irregularities or breaks in the wiring or plug, overheating or abnormal vibrations), do not hesitate, unplug them and look in the instruction manual.
  • Make responsible useof your appliances, do not overload them and always follow the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Be careful with the cables: Gather them and keep them clean by using cable covers, brackets, etc You should never unplug them by pulling on them and you should never exert pressure on them.
  • Be careful with the sockets in your house, do not overload them and keep them free of dust.
  • When choosing electrical appliances for your office, read the manufacturer's information carefully. Make sure they are suitable for your needs and do not buy an appliance just because it is fashionable. Always choose those with the most efficient energy labelling (they will help you consume less energy, which will save money pocket and help protect the environment) and make sure they comply with the applicable requirements.

We will now focus specifically on how to take care of some of the electronic devices that are to be found in an office.

Computers and laptops

For optimal operation, it is important to keep your computer clean and in good condition. It is also advisable to remove any dust that accumulates on the screen so you can see it properly and clean your keyboard thoroughly from time to time, who knows what you may find there...

Here are some simple steps to follow when cleaning these devices:

  • Always shut down your computer before cleaning it.
  • Use a dry microfibre cloth to clean the screen. You can also use wet wipes that have been specially designed for these products. Never use chemicals, except those indicated by the manufacturer.
  • Clean the camera carefully with a damp cloth, you can use a corner of the rag to reach any hidden parts. Then dry it using a dry cloth.
  • The keyboard can be cleaned using a soft or fine brush.
  • You can use a microfibre cloth to clean the mouse. To reach the most inaccessible parts, use a swab or toothpick wrapped in kitchen paper or a damp cloth.

It is very important only to use cables and batteries approved for your make of computer and to keep it away from heat sources. If it is a laptop, always carry it in a case that protects it from shocks and liquid spills.

 

Printers and scanners

These are some of the other most common devices in offices. They should be cleaned and dusted frequently, using a feather a duster or a dry microfibre cloth. If you have a scanner or photocopier, it is also important to clean the glass, always following the manufacturer's instructions to prevent abrasive products from damaging it.

In this type of device, special attention should always be paid to ink cartridges. They may dry out as a result of prolonged inactivity or the weather and this will put the printer out of service. This is why it is recommended to check them regularly to ensure that both the device and the cartridges are in good condition and continue to operate correctly.

 

Speakers, headphones and microphones

With regard to speakers, dust usually gathers on the cabinets, so it is advisable to clean them frequently with a vacuum cleaner.

Because of how they are used, headphones and microphones always need to be kept especially clean. Always follow the instructions of the manufacturers, many recommend cleaning them with a cloth soaked in an alcohol solution.

 

Router

The router should be kept in a cool, ventilated place and away from other electronic devices. Dust it frequently, it is enough just to wipe it with a duster or a dry microfibre cloth.

 

Take care of your devices but do not harm the environment

Finally, it is worth remembering that all electronic devices should be taken to a Recycling Centre once their useful life is over. This group of products includes printer ink and toner cartridges, which are classified as electrical waste so they should never be just thrown away but taken to a Recycling Centre along with other electronic devices.
