Possible risks of laser cleaning technology
March 25, 2022
WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF LASER CLEANING TECHNOLOGY?
While laser technology is considered one of the safer methods for cleaning metal and non-metal materials, there are ways to abuse safety regulations and cause harm to yourself or other individuals. Cleaning lasers should never be used:
Without protective eyewear
Directly on the skin or body
In an uncontrolled environment
Without designated signage to warn of laser cleaning in progress
In the immediate vicinity of unprotected individuals
On anything other than it’s intended purpose
Without proper air filtration
In addition, cleaning non-metallic products — such as wood, paper, or plastics — should be done only with the appropriate settings and in a designated optical hazard zone. If the cleaning solution is using the wrong settings, it could ignite your appliances. As with other high-voltage items, you’ll also need the proper training to avoid electrocution and learn other electrical precautions.
