Protect the Health of Your Employees and Customers
Retail-hardened devices are designed to work even in the harshest store environments. During their normal operation, devices like point of sale (POS) systems and peripherals, self-service kiosks, and handheld computers are subject to frequent contact by both associates and customers throughout the workday.
To keep your equipment sanitized, Mainstreet recommends wiping down your devices several times throughout the day using a cleaning solution that is 70% isopropyl alcohol and 30% water. For touchscreens, use a mild glass cleaner. Our Repair Center Manager, Howard Brewer, further suggests “Spraying the cleaner onto a microfiber cleaning cloth or soft towel and then wiping the surface you want cleaned.”
For more information on sanitizing best practices, here are CDC’s Environmental Cleaning and Disinfection Recommendations as well as recommendations from our OEM partners:
