Blade cleaning mechanisms cause a pile of toner and contaminants to accumulate on the photoreceptor at the tip of the blade. If the blade contacts the photoreceptor in the same location both before and after retraction, contaminants such as paper fibers become trapped resulting in streaking of the final copies.
