When you think about what you need to do in order to keep your business clean, the images of a mop, or one of those cleaning machines you can ride are first to pop up. And it makes sense, because the thing that gets dirty the most is the floor, followed by other surfaces like desks or shelves, or counters. But did you ever think about keeping all the hardware devices you might use in your business clean? And did you ever wonder how is, let’s say, a credit card reader cleaned?

Because credit card readers need cleaning too, in order to work properly, and you can’t really take them apart to wipe the sensors and the components that do the actual reading clean. What you can do is use a special cleaning card, which is designed to clean the magnetic head used to read credit cards in one swipe.

But still, maybe your business incorporates a wending machine, or any other device that accepts cash. You can’t just swipe a card cleaner through it, right, so there has to be a different solution. And there is – it’s still a card, but a different kind of card you feed to the machine and then it cleans the readers in the machine from any kind of dirt or debris.

Now, if your business uses a thermal printer, which can be used for anything from printing barcodes to product declarations, you will need to clean it from time to time. It’s an important part of proper maintenance, and can be easily done by – you guessed it – special cleaning cards, or by using a special cleaning pen. Both are easy to use and don’t require you to know how to take the printer apart.

Of course, these are only some of the devices you may have in your place of business that are easily overlooked for cleaning, or at least their inner parts are. But with these easy cleaning tools, which usually come very cheap and are extremely easy to use, you can keep your hardware clean and running without any dirt-related problems.
