With daily use of computers, dirt and fat leave their mark. Not only outside, but also inside, the aspirator for air (cooler for inside components) draws the dust inside the computer case. But, unlike car, we clean computer very rarely. If you have not plan to upgrade your computer obviously you have not plan to open it a lot of time, even years. Or, maybe your mom or wife during a regular cleaning of rooms may clean the dust just from the monitor and keyboard. However, it is not planned cleaning.

To clean computer component by component follow next tips:

  1. First - put power off – turn the cable from the outlet for safety reasons.

  2. Monitor can be cleaned with moist (not wet), soft rag or you can buy a tool for cleaning the monitor (cleaner) and clean it with soft duster (do not add the tool for cleaning directly on the monitor).

  3. The keypad is very hard to clean because there are plenty of places where dirt can be located. First, turn it upside down and shake it. After that blow up the dust between the keys with hair dryer (put it in the cold) or compressed air in cans (cost- $5 - $10). If you use a compressor be careful because the pressure is very large and can damage the keyboard. At the end - with moisten rag with alcohol pass between the keys. If you have a laptop be very careful.

  4. Clean the mouse - the upper and lower sides clean with paper or cloth moisten with alcohol.

  5. Clean the computer case on the yard or balcony because it has a larger quantity of dust. Disconnect all cables from the case. With screwdriver unscrew the screws and open the case (Only if you know what you are doing!). First (don’t forget) blow out the power supply with compressed air in cans, or some electric dust cleaner. Use the brush used for housing to clean non electronic parts of the case (valves on processor and graphic card, passive refrigerators etc.). Be aware – do not touch electronic components. If your computer case has a lot of dust blow it with compressor or absorb it with electronic dust cleaner.
More tips: Clean the computer case every 3-6 months, depending on where your computer is located. If your computer is on floor you'll need to clean more often than the one that is placed on a higher position (ex. on the table). To preserve keyboard clean, do not eat and drink on it and don’t work with dusty and dirty hands. Clean the keyboard as often as possible because when dirt once goes between the keys, you will not be able to remove the dust without a full segmentation.
