5 Reasons You Should Buy Printer Cleaning Kits For Your Small Business

Printers have always been an essential tool for the corporate world. Having a paper trail is a must when it comes to keeping up with your documents and signatures. However, when your printer decides to jam or isn’t working at its best, you should be ready to make repairs. Dust particles or dried ink can interfere with your business’s productivity. If you’re not sure if having a printer cleaning kit is worth it, here are five reasons to buy one for your small business.

Save Time
Knowing how to troubleshoot your printer will save you more time than calling a technician or a specialist. If it is only a simple cleaning, it is ideal to be taken care of in-house than wait to make an appointment with someone else. Having a cleaning kit to handle the problem right on the spot can prevent delays for your business, allowing employees to finish their tasks. Time is money, especially for small businesses that want to experience growth.

Multi-use cleaning kits with 10 to 25 cleaning runs are sold from $11 to $60, depending on your printer’s brand and model. Most printer manufacturers recommend cleaning your printer every time you change the ribbon (that’s around every 500 to 1000 prints). Compared to replacing your printer’s printhead, buying a printer cleaning kit will save you hundreds of dollars.

For example, if you create 50,000 prints, the total amount you will pay for cleaning supplies will be a maximum of $120 (with a multi-use cleaning kit). If you do not clean your printer and have the printhead replaced instead, the expense can range from $500 to $800.

With the money you dave, you're able to supply your company with other essential supplies, like badge reels, badge holders, and lanyards.

All The Supplies You Need
A printer cleaning kit will have all of the supplies you will need to get the job done. This budget-friendly solution will restore your printer with ease and no mess. Since all of the tools will be in the same place, there will be no reason for you not to do the repairs yourself. One printer cleaning kit contains enough supplies for multiple printers or multiple cleaning runs in a single printer.

Maintain Your Equipment
Tiny particles can be transferred through your printer rollers onto the printhead. Over time, they accumulate inside the printer, causing spots and voids to appear on prints. Using a cleaning kit will minimize the amount of debris trapped in your printer and prevent the degradation of the machine. Regularly cleaning a printer does not guarantee a 100% problem-free operation, but it will reduce the incident of a printer malfunction and increase the lifespan of your equipment.

Non-Toxic Solutions
Traditional formulas and chemicals can cause health issues and environmental damage. Many of the cleaning solutions included in the kits are safe and non-toxic. They will not be harmful to be exposed to for an extended period if need be. Also, if small children are present while you need to quickly fix your printer, they won’t be at risk.
