Handpiece Tubing – Handpiece tubing can be wiped down with non-staining disinfecting solutions with brands such as ProSpray Wipes by Certol, Optim 1 Wipes by SciCan, or PDI Super Sani-Cloth.
Do not use Cavicide or other brands where alcohol, ammonium or bleach is the active ingredient, as those chemicals are known to cause yellow staining on the tubing and the residue can degrade plastics and metals.
Painted work surfaces and Handpiece Holders – Do not spray detergents or solutions directly into openings on the cart or the ball valve of the holder, as this may damage internal components. If you are using a spray solution, please spray onto a soft cloth or sponge before wiping down these surfaces.
The use of non-foaming wipes, like the brands listed previous, can also be used on these surfaces. Again, avoid brands where alcohol, ammonium or bleach is the active ingredient as the residue left behind can degrade components on the unit.
Worktops and Control Panel Overlays – The worktop may be a Silestone engineered quartz top or Wilsonart solid surface polymer top. The overlays are plastic with transparent windows. Do not use abrasive pads on these surfaces as it will scratch and damage them. Only use soft cloth or sponge with mild detergent type solutions that can disinfect.
