Why keeping your device hardware clean is important

Few people realise the benefits of maintaining their computers physical condition. When a PC isn’t regularly cleaned, airflow to critical components is restricted and can lead to overheating and damaged hardware. Damaged hardware can end up costing thousands of dollars to repair, from replacing parts through to recovering data that wasn’t backed up.

A device should have a thorough clean at least twice a year to prevent a buildup of dust and other foreign material within the device.
On that same point, it never hurts to clean that mouse and keyboard either.

Desktop and laptops often sit in areas where dust collection is inevitable, from notebooks lying on or under blankets, to desktops stuffed into office crevasses or under desks. It is important to realise that leaving dust to accumulate on and inside the device is asking for trouble in the future.

The benefits of keeping your digital device clean are threefold. Greater airflow from clean inlets and outlets means lower operating temperatures and longer living devices. Electrical components that are free of dust are also less likely to short and cause damage to the internal boards that it is connected to with the bonus of removing a potential fire hazard. Clean devices are quiet devices, as the lower resistance from clean inlet/outlet filters provides a higher flow of air providing the ability to lower the fan speed while keeping the same level of cooling for the device. Dust isn’t the only thing that has been found inside a desktop PC either!
