By Samantha Kirk Subscribe to RSS | March 28th 2012 | Views:

To keep a computer in a good working condition, cleaning the computer and the accessories at regular intervals keeps the computer in a good working condition. It is so easy for dust to get collected especially on the keyboard. There are so many ways and tools that are available to clean the computer effectively. Though, a lot of us try to cover our desktop and other computer accessories, it is better to clean the computer at regular intervals.

Many of them feel that spraying liquid on the computer makes cleaning easier, never squirt and liquid on any of the computer components. If you really want to clean it this way, then wet a cloth and use that for cleaning the computer accessories. Vacuum can be helpful in sucking dust and dirt or any other small particles that gets accumulated on the outer case of the computer. Don’t try use a vacuum for the inside of the computer as it might damage the flimsy gadgets that are inside. Another reason is a vacuum generates static electricity which can prove harmful for those appliances that are inside the computer. It is always advisable to turn off the computer before starting to clean it. Not it is better to turn off any gadgets or appliances before cleaning them.

The other tips to keep computers clean are not to eat or drink anything near the computer. If anything falls on them, it is quite difficult to clean the mess. It is difficult clean the fan that is present in the computer. Hold the fan or place something in-between so that does not rotate when it is cleaned. And it is better not to smoke too much near the computer (it is even better when you quit smoking all together. Good for your computer and your health!). If you are not sure about a particular cleaning method, then there are Computer Help guides available online and as books that gives you tips on how to clean computers in the most effective way.

Cleaning CD ROMS and DVDs can be done with the cleaning kits that are available in the market. But, it can also be done with a clean piece of cotton cloth. When cleaning, wipe from the middle to the put side, do not rub the cloth on the device and it is not the right way of cleaning. Water or alcohol can be used for wiping the device.

Headphones should also be cleaned often as they are used by multiple people and there is a possibility of ear infection of not cleaned at regular intervals. A disinfectant or a cleaning solvent can be used as it prevents any infection from spreading on. In schools and universities, a lot of students might use the same head phones. Either the school or university should ask the children to bring their own headsets or clean them on a daily basis. Next are the key boards, they can be the most vulnerable gadget to dirt and bacteria. At times, they can have more bacteria than a toilet. They are not only the most exposed but the most violated gadget. Whenever a user is frustrated or angry with the computer, their keyboards are the victims to most of the users’ mood. Not just this, typing with hands that are not clean also infests the keyboard with bacteria. So, cleaning them regularly not only keeps them neat, but also keeps the bacteria away.

Thus, each computer part has to be kept clean, not only because of the collection of dust and dirt but also for the computer to run effectively.
