5 Tips to keep your laptop & desktops looking brand New
Our experienced and highly trained technicians carefully troubleshoot and repair your device—normally while you wait. And we use only high-quality parts—just like the manufacturer installed—ensuring a high-quality repair that lasts the life of your device.
With the world going into 2020 and an inevitable pandemic and Covid-19 era, everyone has become cautious and particular about keeping the most used and touched devices and surfaces clean and sanitized. Although this has always been just as important, the current situation has brought back an awareness for the same. Here we have tried to get you 5 hacks to do the same which will keep your tech clean, sanitized & looking brand new along with increasing its performance as well as lifespan.
All of us have definitely seen a lot of new sanitizing and cleaning products popping up in ads around us. We now also have special devices to sanitize smartphones and small devices, but we don’t have anything similar for laptops and desktops. We at fixperts actually think that you don’t really need to invest in those as long as you follow these basics to keep the inevitable germs and sticky fingerprints away.
1) Microfiber cloth to shield screen and keyboard
We at Fixperts prefer to go with this option over the more commonly used silicon and other keyboard protectors mainly because they ruin the look, feel and experience of your high end MacBook or PC and are not a 100% solution to all problems. Placing a microfiber cloth between the screen and the keyboard every time you’re done with work will keep the dirt and dust from the keyboard to pass on the screen. It’s also helpful because you have the cloth handy and can wipe down the surfaces every time you use it.
2) Water Repellent Case
We all know that everyone loves to carry their laptop everywhere rather than to be in a situation where you cannot get an important task done in time. It has also become very convenient to do so since the devices are becoming smaller, sleeker and lighter by the day.
Getting a good case will not only protect your laptop from accidents where you spill something over it by mistake but also make it dust & weatherproof. The soft internal lining also protects the surface from scratches. Always make sure to use the small cases that come with the laptop case for accessories and charges or the entire purpose is lost!
3) Soft Bristled Cleaning Brush
However careful we may be, but we cannot avoid getting dust and dirt into the vents, ports & keyboards on our laptop. Fixpert suggests keeping a mild-bristled cleaning brush handy and making a habit of using it every once in a while. Its of course a multipurpose must have that can be used on any tech you own. A weekly rundown of dusting the nooks and corners will do the trick for all of us unless you are one of those outdoor users.
4) Alcohol Wipes
We couldn’t have missed out or not included this one. It’s the thriller weapon when fighting the greasy surfaces with fingerprints and dust particles. You have an option to go for a big pack or the handy individual packs that can fit almost anywhere. These are for sure the best to keep our keyboards, retina displays, and accessories sanitized and cleaned. They also come in handy on the go, keep one in your back to use right after your lunch meeting!
5) Mini Air Duster Cans
Every once in a while, a little deep clean is required. Fixperts recommends to use these at least once a month to keep dust buried away in all the unseen places of your laptop. If you aren’t aware about these, they are just like any other spray cans and can be found at major tech stores easily. They just have compressed air that shoots out of a small nozzle to blast away the dust and dirt that lingers on even after your regular cleaning. It’s just a mini version of the air compressor we are used to using at the car service stations!
