As summer is finally in full swing here in Ohio, people are getting busier. This means small tasks are getting pushed to the side to go out and enjoy the summer rays. At the end of the day, we are all tired from work, children, ball games, and all the other things that bring our days life. It is still important to take just a few quick moments to do a little summer clean up of your computer area.
First thing is first: Making sure your keyboard and mouse are dust free and batteries have been changed, help prevent those keys from getting sticky and stiff. Using any pressurized air in a can will blast out the tiniest of dust and crumbs.
Second: Clean off your desk from meaningless clutter. This can help keep you better organized when you come to your computer area for a quick email check.
Third: Clean your computer screen. Nothing is worse than sitting down to do anything and having a dirty smear of something or fingerprints on your screen. Any computer safe screen wipes will clear away any fingerprints left behind.
Fourth: If you are handy with a screw driver and are able to clean out your computer tower, do so now! Dust builds up inside these towers faster than you can say Bob's your uncle! Cleaning out the dust helps the computer run more efficiently and easily without having to work extra hard. If you don't trust yourself to do it, and are local, just give us a call and set up an appointment. We will gladly come do this task for you. If you are further away, you can ask a computer savvy person you trust or take your tower to a computer company that provides this service.
And finally, Fifth: Clean the area around your computer desk and tower. This helps to cut down on the dust that collects inside the towers. This is also a good time to take a quick look at all your computer wires and give them a quick dusting. You may want to check the integrity of your wires and be sure none of them need replacement.
All of these little cleaning reminders just are to help you have a nice stress free summer so you can forget about external computer cleaning for a few months!! Enjoy your summer and stay cool my friends.
