Touch Screen Cleaning

iSpace Environments installs a lot of touch screen systems in conference and shared spaces.

Outside of those, we come across touch screens and touchpads in our world multiple times a day.  Sure, your first thought goes to your phones – practically attached to us these days – but consider the other places we interact with touch screens: computers, coffee makers, auto navigation & interface, atm screens, elevator indicators, office copier, restaurant table interface, in-flight entertainment, security panels, grocery checkouts, ticket machines, ATMs, interactive public signage, retail checkouts.  Suffice it to say, we interact with touchscreens EVERYWHERE. 

In these unsettling times, we start to realize the things we’ve overlooked – like our extensive use of touchscreens and our lack of cleaning those touchscreens.   Our partner, Crestron, has issued a simple summary of how to disinfect their product which applies to just about any touch panel. The key parts are using a microfiber cloth and applying a small amount of cleaner onto the cloth – don’t spray directly onto the screen.

To clean a Crestron Interface:

  • Use any commercially available non-ammonia glass or disinfectant cleaner.
  • Apply a small amount of cleaner directly to a microfiber or a similar disposable towel or cloth-be sure the cloth is damp and not wet. 
  • Wipe the glass touchscreen clean.
  • Do not apply cleaner directly to any interface (as most of our systems are not waterproof). And do not wipe the plastic surrounding the glass.
