Sleep without toner dust | hot online

I am planning to replace my old inkjet printer with a modern laser printer. However, the device is in the bedroom, do I have to worry about vapors and toner dust?

Only defective laser printers release toner dust, otherwise the toner powder remains in the device and firmly fused with the paper on the printouts. But where the aforesaid merging takes place, particles are formed that are a thousand times smaller than toner grains and are therefore counted among the nanoparticles. They rarely come from the toner, but mostly from the paper or the fixing mechanism.

The “Blue Angel” seal of quality proves that the devices marked with it do not emit nanoparticles above a specified test value. Also, they only do this when they’re printing. It is sufficient if you ventilate the room thoroughly during printing.

You don’t need to worry when it’s switched off, only new devices often give off unpleasant-smelling residues of cleaning agents and flame retardants at first, which is why you should set up the new printer somewhere else for a few days before you bring it into the bedroom.
