How to Clean your Computer

How often:
Generally you should try to clean your computer every 3-6 months. If you use your computer often and if it's in a very dusty environment then you should clean it sooner (every 3-4 months) if you use your computer sparingly in a fairly dust free environment you don't need to clean it as often (every 5-6 months).


What you need:

  • Screwdriver (to open up the computer case)
  • Can of Compressed air (to blow away dust inside the computer)
  • Cleaning Liquid: Rubbing alcohol or mild cleaning agent (dish detergent mixed with water...).
  • Cotton swabs (Q-tips)
  • Paper towel or cotton cloth


    Make sure your computer is turned off before you begin the cleaning process!


    Notes
    1. A computer on the ground attracts more dust than one elevated on a platform.


    2. Static attracts dust. Wiping down your computer with a solution of one half vinegar and one half water will minimize static.
