The team at Rent-A-Geek has a nice list of tips to help you keep your computer clean at home. Home computers and Laptops get a lot of use, sometimes under questionable circumstances. Like the home cook who uses it in the kitchen. Or the teen who uses it while eating cereal. Or the family who streams on their laptop. No matter what you're doing with your computer, it's going to collect dust and dirt, even if it just sits in the corner.
Rent-A-Geek, your local computer repair experts, can fix all types of computers and laptops, with all sorts of problems. But sometimes you don't need a professional to clean your computer. With a few items, you can clean it yourself.
What you need to Clean Your Computer:
- Canned Air: Use this to blow dust and crumbs out of your keyboard. A few quick puffs will send any stray dirt right out of your keyboard. You can find canned air in our line up of products at Rent-A-Geek. We're located at 104 East Arctic Avenue in Palmer.
- Disinfectant Wipes: These handy little wipes will clean and sanitize your computer. Make sure you squeeze all the moisture out of the wipes, no need to drown your computer. You can use them on the exterior and the keyboard. Rent-A-Geek recommends wiping your keyboard at least every two weeks, probably more often if you've been sick or other people touch your keyboard. Remember to blow all the dust and dirt out out of your keyboard before wiping it down.
- Clean the Screen: We use, recommend and sell Screen Dr. It's the perfect thing to use on your computer screen. However do not spray it directly on your screen. Spray it lightly on a microfiber cloth and then wipe your screen with it. Wipe until your screen is clean and dry.
With just a little maintenance you can keep the outside of your computer clean and neat. Remember to leave the INSIDES to the expert team at Rent-A-Geek. We're right here in Palmer Alaska at 104 East Arctic Avenue. Or call us for an appointment 745-5060.
