Getting rid of Computer dust should be on our list of weekly cleaning tasks, says Dial-A-Maid Cleaning Service in Evanston, Il 60201.To remove dust from the exterior of your computer casing and a conventional screen, all you need to do is wipe it down with a lightly dampened sponge(water only) or paper towel. Never spray any fluid directly onto your computer-drips could damage the electronics. Use a disposable duster if you prefer. Most screens are plastic now, not glass so use only a damp, soft, lint-free cleanaing cloth on them. Wipe them with a gentle side-to-side motion, not in circles.
Inside your computer box also accumulates lots of dust and can cause overheating. This will lead to expensive repairs. Computer covers are held on in various ways, usually by two screws you have to loosen on the back. On a typical computer tower, you usually want to remove the cover on the left side of the box.
Put the brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner and suck the dust out, being careful not to loosen any connections. Never blow inside your computer, either with your mouth or with compressed air. That could force dust into the workings of your CD drive, where it will do damage. While you have the vacuum all set up with the dust attachment, turn your keyboard upside down and give it a gentle shake. Vacuum up all of the debris that fall out, then give the keyboard itself a once-over with the brush.
Putting your Computer on a weekly, dust-free preventative cleaning maintenance, will ensure you of not having many repair problems in the future.
