  • Keeping Monitors and Computers Clean

    How often do you clean your monitors and computers? And what do you use?

    Monitor, once a week. It is turned off and I use air first and then a damp soft paper towel to wipe down and then a dry one to finish with.

    Computer, covered with the monitor. It is a combination monitor and computer assembly.

    Printer, once a month. Done the same.

      CPU will get hit with a swiffer duster every few days...I get a lot of dust here because my office, and apartment, sit between the entrance/exit rows. Alot of traffic means a lot of dirt/dust. The monitor gets dusted at least every other week and I'll wipe the screen with a damp cloth if it looks like it needs it. I also use canned air on the back of the CPU for anything the swiffer may have missed, and on the keyboard.

        All of the time! We get dusty in here. I'll vacuum around the computer about once a month. So much dust, yuck.

          Try to use a cleaner for electronic devices, and use a microfiber cloth to wipe the screen. Using a "normal" cleaner can result in damage to your screen. There are several monitor wipes on Amazon that work well, and would help you out.

          For computers, I would suggest cleaning around the fan cover at least once a month, since the dust that is collected at the back creates a fire hazard. Use a vacuum to pull out the dust. A swiffer will just get the surface and not what's inside.

          For a better cleaning, and if you're feeling brave, open the cover of the computer and vacuum out what's inside. If you've had your computer for more than a few months you will be shocked at how much has collected in there. Again a bit of a fire hazard.

          If you're looking for products, I've found these work well:

              Avoid swinging gates if at all possible. We have swings and rolling due to property limitations and the swings have given us trouble.

              She last accessed in January, this came up in May. Our cameras don't retain video that far back. And I don't know when I'd have time to watch all that.

              I was more concerned that the credit card provider is even entertaining issuing these payments back basically disregarding our rental agreement...
