Four Ways to Keep Your Tech Clean

Four Ways to Keep Your Tech Clean

All things considered, our devices take a beating during their everyday use. We must do our part to protect them from dirt, grime, germs, and dust. While it’s not the sexiest task in the world, it is no doubt a practice that can prolong the lifespan of your devices. Let’s look at four easy ways you can get more out of your devices through cleanliness.

Craft a Consistent Cleaning Regimen

You won’t get the clean you’re looking for without a dedicated cleaning routine. Your workspace should be well-stocked with microfiber cloths, screen wipes, and other electronic-friendly solutions that you can use to wipe down the surface of your screens, keyboards, and other peripherals. Make sure you power down your devices first, as you could otherwise damage them (or even yourself). If you clean your devices regularly, you’ll help to avoid the buildup of undesirable dust and grime.

Exercise Caution in Device Usage

A little bit of mindful caution while using your devices will go a long way toward prolonging their cleanliness. This might mean avoiding eating or drinking at your workstation to keep crumbs and liquids away from the keyboard. It could also mean just making sure your hands are clean when using your devices.

Invest in Protective Shields and Covers

Again, prevention is the best way to keep your devices clean. Protect your screens and devices with cases and other fortifying shields. This will help to keep out dust, debris, and other hazardous elements. Make sure that the devices you use don’t keep running too hot, though, as this could compromise their functionality. For laptops, keyboard covers can be particularly helpful in keeping dust and debris out from under the keys.

Employ Compressed Air for Thorough Cleansing

You should be routinely wiping down surfaces of your devices to keep them tidy, but sometimes, you’ll want to do a more thorough cleaning with compressed air in hard-to-reach areas where dust accumulates, like keyboards, ports, and vents. Before using air, though, be sure to turn your device off and check the manufacturer’s recommendations. You don’t want to accidentally damage your devices by trying to make them run better.

If you want to get the most value out of your technology, keeping it well-maintained and clean is going to go a long way. To learn more about how to get value from your tech, be sure to follow our blog.
