Cleaning instructions

The cleaning guide is available at the link above.

To keep your Airblade looking new, ensure that all surfaces of the Airblade hand dryer are cleaned daily with a soft cloth and a nonabrasive/non-caustic cleaning solution.

Wipe down the fascia daily to avoid mineral deposits and build up of debris. Clean the floor and wall beneath and around the unit. This may be required more regularly in high use areas.

The following chemicals are some that are harmful to the unit and should not be used. The use of these will invalidate the warranty.

Do not use:

  • Alcohol-acid mixes
  • Alcohol
  • Solvent / oil-based products
  • Quaternary ammonium
  • Alkali-bleach mixes
  • Foaming ingredients
  • Bleach or abrasive cleaners
  • Do not pressure wash

Flow lines occur during production and are a result of the plastic moulding process. This is perfectly normal and will not impact on the function or structure of the machine.

Is there anything else we can help you with?

Please note that when using our product (and any other hands under, wall mounted hand dryer) that the water from wet hands is blown off into the air and if there is a collection of water on the wall, this can be easily wiped away as part of the regular cleaning regime in the washroom.

If the water on the wall is an issue, especially for porous surfaces, consider the use of a splash back or non-porous wall surface (e.g. ceramic tile).
