How to Clean Your Laptop Safely ?

You may already know this, but the average laptop keyboard is around 5 times dirtier than a toilet seat. Everything that gets on your hands gets onto your keys and down in between the cracks.

Dust, pet fur, hair, crumbs, and other random things will get inside your computer clogging the fans, causing overheating, and damaging ports. Cleaning your laptop out regularly will help keep it running smoothly.take “hp pavilion dv6000” for example :

1、Clean the Surfaces.

You can clean the case, screen, and tops of the keys by rubbing it softly with a microfiber cloth.

To sanitize it as well, put a small amount of rubbing alcohol on the cloth and wipe the computer’s surfaces.

Don’t use harsh cleaning chemicals on your laptop, which could damage it.

2、Clean the Keyboard.

Clean in between the keys and in any cracks with cotton swabs dipped in the rubbing alcohol. To get dust, crumbs, etc. out of the keyboard, use compressed air (which comes in a can and is inexpensive).

If you spill something into the keyboard, or something is stuck under the keys, you can remove the keys for a deeper clean, and clean the exposed area with the cloth and alcohol.

3、Clean the Vents.

Ports and vents in your dv6000 laptop often become horribly clogged with dust. Cleaning it out before everything gets completely blocked can help prevent damage from overheating.

Use the compressed air again here, blowing it into the vents and ports of your laptop.

When you’re blowing air on the vents exposing the fan, the air pressure can cause it to spin, which can damage or even break the fan. to prevent this, you can use a toothpick or paperclip, sticking in the vent in between the fan blades to prevent it from spinning.
