Is your computer starting to lag? A simple spring clean might just do the trick to speed it up again.
Regular cleaning keeps your computer in working order and prevents a build-up of dust from blocking its fan – which can cause it to overheat and slow down.
Here we show you how to clean the keyboard, monitor and mouse, as well as getting dust out of nooks and crannies to keep your machine running at its best.
Tips for cleaning
- Turn off your computer and unplug your equipment before cleaning
- Never spray any cleaning solution directly onto your equipment (instead spray it onto a microfibre cloth and wipe)
- You can use your vacuum to quickly pick up dirt and dust around your computer – but avoid using it on the inside as it can cause damage
