Effective Cleaning Procedures during Air Compressor Repairs in Toronto

Nowadays, technicians who visit your facilities have a new set of COVID-19 related protocols to follow. When experts like Compressed Air International conduct air compressor repair in Toronto, we make sure to adhere to social distancing and hygiene measures. On top of that, with the daily use of your tools and machinery, you can also apply the same hygiene measures and best practices adopted during air compressor servicing to help curb the spread of the virus.


Here are some effective cleaning methods used during air compressors repairs in Toronto that you can also adopt in your daily operations:


When it comes to electric tools, cleaning is not as simple as dousing the machinery in water and soap. You will need to take care to ensure that the cleaning process does not cause damage to the machinery.


1. Take note of all the areas of the machine where cleaning solution could potentially penetrate and be extra careful when cleaning those areas.


2. Wear gloves as often as possible when cleaning and operating machinery or tools. Use a rag and a mixture of mild soap and water to tackle dirt and grease. Make sure to wring out the rag to ensure it does not contain an excessive amount of water, which would easily leak into the machine’s components.


3. Pay extra attention to the surfaces and touch points of the machine or tool and clean those areas with a solution that contains at least 70% alcohol. A good candidate for this is isopropyl alcohol solution as it is typically non-damaging to most types of surfaces.  In addition, the CDC also recommends a bleach solution that can be made using 4 teaspoons of bleach per quart of water, or 5 tablespoons per gallon.


4. Allow the cleaned tools and machinery to air dry.


In addition to that, you should also be washing your hands for 20 seconds after operating any tools or machinery that have been used or touched by others. You can also use hand sanitizer.


These are some of the best practices observed during air compressor servicing or air compressor repairs in Toronto. With everyone observing these measures, we hope to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic together as a community towards a better and healthier future.
