Preparing Your Office Equipment for the Extended Shutdown

When the pandemic began, most of us did not think that we would be away from our offices for more than a month. We certainly did not imagine that a month would turn into over 6 months! Now that the shutdown has been extended, it is important to take care of your office equipment to prevent it from getting damaged. We recommend taking the following measures to ensure that your equipment is in order when you return to the office.

Safely Unplug Your Office Equipment

Unplug your equipment, including all coffee and water machines, if nobody has been or will be using them for months. If the plug is not accessible, most units contain power switches that can be turned off. These switches are usually located at the back of the machine or inside the unit.

Empty Coffee Grounds and Drip Trays 

To prevent mold, clean out any used coffee grounds. It’s also important to empty all drip trays and dispose of your coffee grounds to keep your machines clean. When you return to your office, remember that you will have to wait 20-30 minutes for machines to heat or cool to the right temperature once they are turned on.

Supporting  Your Return to the Office 

When your team transitions back into the office, we are here to help keep your office environment safe and clean. We are supplying the TopBrewer, a touchless coffee machine. With this machine, employees can order coffee with an app, and completely avoid touching the machine. Find out more about the TopBrewer. In addition to the TopBrewer, we offer the Encore Bean to Cup and the Virtu Bean to Cup, two other coffee machines with touchless options that create quality drinks such as cappuccinos, lattes, hot chocolates, and more.

If your team is looking to upgrade their water, we also offer the Bevi Still and Carbonated Beverage program which has a touchless machine option. The Bevi will give your employees fresh and clean still or sparkling water, along with a variety of flavored water choices.
