How to care for the protective screen to make it last longer
With the pandemic, glass or methacrylate protective screens have gone from being useful to indispensable. Everything indicates that they will continue to be an element of prevention in the workplace, so it is important to keep them in good condition so that they last a long time.
There is nothing like serving staff behind a shiny, transparent and clean glass. Something that can be complicated when our screen is exposed eight hours a day, five or six days a week, serving a considerable volume of customers.
However, just follow a few basic cleaning guidelines to keep the protective screen looking like the first day.
Is it necessary to disinfect the screen?
Under normal conditions of use, the screen should be cleaned at least once a week. However, the important thing is not so much the frequency with which it is cleaned, but to do it in the correct way so that it does not lose its properties.
Depending on the products we use, we can extend the useful life of our screen.
According to cleaning protocols, good hygiene involves disinfecting every work surface. The screen is not an exception.
However, chemical detergents can alter the condition of some types of partitions.
How to clean a methacrylate screen
This is the case of methacrylate screens, which should be cleaned exclusively with water and neutral soap. The use of solvents, glass cleaners, soaps with mixtures or any product containing alcohol would spoil one of its most precious properties: transparency.
Under no circumstances should any other product be used for cleaning. A soft cloth lightly dampened with a reasonable amount of neutral soap is sufficient to remove any kind of stain or dust.
How to clean a glass screen
One of the advantages of glass screens is that they do not attract dust, so they will remain clean longer. Another difference with respect to methacrylate screens is that glass screens can be cleaned with bleach, disinfectant alcohol, soap and water or any other disinfectant product.
Even so, as manufacturers of screens, we always recommend using a specific cleaning product for glass.
How to remove a scratch or scuff from your screen
It is also important to remember that the hardness of methacrylate is lower than that of normal glass. Although it is generally more resistant to breakage, it should be borne in mind that this material can be scratched relatively easily.
Extra tip: the fluorine conceals small flaws. If your methacrylate screen has suffered a scratch, apply a little toothpaste with a soft cloth on the surface. It will hardly be noticed.
By following these simple instructions, the protection screens for businesses, stores and offices can be kept in optimum condition for a long time.
