Workplace Essentials for Keeping Your Computer Clean

When you work on a computer every day, it is inevitable that your computer will quickly get dirty. Even if you make a conscious effort to keep your workspace clean and tidy on a weekly, or even daily basis, your computer, computer monitor, mouse and keyboard can quickly become dusty and dirty. Cleaning your computer can be very frustrating, as just as quickly as it takes you to make it dust free, it will hardly take any longer for the dust to return.

In some cases, using the wrong cleaning products can lead to a quicker build-up of dust and dirt. Wipes and sprays that aren’t designed for a computer monitor can leave the screen looking dirty and smudged, and many wet wipes can attract dust. What many people don’t realise is that there are a number of useful and cost effective products that are specifically designed for computer cleaning:

When cleaning your computer, you will likely find that there are many areas that aren’t easily accessible. Whilst you may be able to effectively clean most areas of your computer and keyboard, when there is dust stuck between keys, or inside the fan ducts of your computer, this can really stand out. Aerosol air dusters contain compressed HFC free gas and are designed to blow dust and debris out of less accessible areas of your electronic appliances, including your computer, keyboard, laptop or printer.

PC/screen cleaning wipes can be bought to effectively clean all glass and plastic surfaces of your computer and other office equipment, for example, printers, plastic PC housings and casings. However, when it comes to keeping your screen clean, specialist screen cleaning wet and dry wipes can be much more effective.

Using a wet screen cleaning wipe, you can wipe dust and debris away from your screen without leaving any smears. When using a wet wipe, dust in the air can quickly stick to the screen, and many tissues and cloths can also leave debris on the screen if they are used to wipe it dry. Low lint drying cloths are much more effective at wiping a screen dry and can be bought in packs with non-smearing wet wipes. By regularly using wet and dry wipes, you can keep your screen in a much cleaner and clearer state.

Once you have used an air duster to blow all loose dust and debris away, an anti-static foam cleaner can then be used to clean all plastic and metal surfaces of your printer without attracting a fast build-up of dust. This type of cleaner is effective for cleaning textures surfaces that are common on computer housings and casings. It is important not to use foam cleaner on computer screens as it is not designed for this kind of surface and is likely to do more harm than good.
