Recommendations - How to keep your computer clean

The workplace at the PC is one of the dirtiest in the home or office. We constantly touch the keyboard and mouse, often have a snack at the computer. Food debris, dust, touch with dirty hands - all this creates excellent conditions for microorganisms.

In this article, we will describe in detail how to keep a laptop, tablet, candy bar or monitor clean and disinfect surfaces to prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria.

Be sure to turn off the device before starting cleaning. Remember to remove the drives and turn off all connected devices to the computer. Then, remove all power sources, such as batteries or power cables, and disconnect all connected wires.

Cleaning the computer cover:

  1. Use mild cleaning solutions (without ammonia and non-abrasive products) and a damp, soft, lint-free cloth to clean painted computer surfaces.
  2. Apply a cleaner to the fabric and wait for the sponge or soft, lint-free cloth to absorb the cleaner.
  3. Squeeze the excess fluid out of the sponge or cloth and gently wipe the lid in a circular motion so that the excess fluid does not enter the device.
  4.         
  5. Remove the residual cleaner, and then wipe the lid again with a clean, dry sponge or soft, lint-free cloth.
  6. Wait for the surface to dry completely, and then remove any remaining fiber from the sponge or cloth.

Cleaning the computer keyboard:

  1. Apply a little isopropyl alcohol to a soft, lint-free cloth and squeeze out excess fluid.
  2. Wipe the surface of the keyboard with a soft, lint-free cloth to prevent liquid from getting on or between the keys.
  3. Wait for the surface to dry completely.

Note: Never spray or pour liquid cleaner directly onto the LCD or keyboard.

Cleaning the computer LCD:

  1. Gently wipe the display with a dry, soft, lint-free cloth.
  2. If the stain or other stains remain, moisten a soft, lint-free cloth with water or a mixture (50:50) of isopropyl alcohol and distilled water.
  3. Squeeze as much liquid as possible from a soft, lint-free soft cloth and wipe the display again to prevent liquid from entering the computer.
  4. Let the display dry.

Note:

  • For cleaning, you can use anti-static fabrics to clean the LCD displays, some types of lens wipes.
  • Isopropyl alcohol is a flammable liquid. Do not use the cleaner near an open flame or when the device is turned on.
Disinfection of the computer, keyboard and LCD

1. Before use, squeeze out excess liquid from a tissue or disinfectant cloth.
2. It is safe to use disinfectant wipes designed for office / home use. Some medical disinfectant wipes can cause discoloration, damage the surface, or even affect the functionality of the device. To minimize impact, we recommend the following:

  • Gently wipe the system so that excess liquid does not enter the device;
  • After disinfection, wipe off any remaining disinfectant in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions;
  • Always let the computer dry completely before use.
3. Medical wipes and their chemical composition vary greatly. Depending on the chemicals, frequency and duration of use, medical wipes can affect the appearance, namely discoloration or bloating. The functionality of the system may also be impaired (corrosion, malfunction of electrical parts). To minimize impact, we recommend the following:
  • Napkins with hydrogen peroxide (napkins with no more than 0.5% hydrogen peroxide);
  • Alcohol-based wipes (for example, with meliseptol);
  • Do not use wipes containing sodium hypochlorite (bleach);
  • Wipe off any remaining cleaner as soon as possible and wipe the surface with a dry, soft, lint-free cloth.
