The heat is on . . . (reminds me of a song from the 90′s?). There’s dust everywhere. There’s more dust every time you dust. The vents and ducts are to blame . . . and static electricity. When the humidity is below 30%, that’s when things go from bad to worse.
Chris Plotz, Product Development Manager, ITW Pro Brands in Olathe, Kansas, says to follow these steps for dealing with dusting electronics:
- Power down the screen. This not only lowers the risk of electrocution, but will allow you to more easily see dust and grime.
- Use products that are made to clean these surfaces.
- Start with a dry microfiber cloth.
- Wipe in a slow circular motions with light pressure. Make sure this wipe is lint-free and non-abrasive you don’t want to have to clean too much or damage your screen.
- Avoid using paper products like paper towels and facial tissues as they are abrasive and occasionally have moisturizes that can soil screens.
- If the grime is significant, spray a chemical specified for screen cleaning onto the wipe not the screen. Use the damp wipe in the same manner you would a dry. The liquid will aid in cleaning as it changes the surface tension and aids in removal.
