How to select a computer vacuum cleaner

More and more of us are spending more and more time in front of a computer, be it at work or at home. In our increasingly busy lives, we sometimes don't even have time to go and have a proper lunch or do much else. Obviously, with this in mind, your computer will pick up a fair amount of dirt and grime. This article will help you to select a computer vacuum cleaner to suit your needs.

Cleaning tips

Whilst there are specialist computer vacuum cleaners on the market, there are a few basic and essential tips to help keep your computer nice and clean and in a tip-top working condition. A cleaner PC is an efficient PC! Fans always running? Are the fans inside your computer constantly running or powering up or down on a regular basis? This is more than likely a dust problem and this can usually quite easily be fixed. Internal dust Dust is a fact of life and your computer, be it a laptop, desktop tower or all in one machine will collect this over time. Not only can this build up around heat sensitive areas of the computer, it can also cause inefficiency and even possibly terminal damage to your system. If you can easily access the inside of your PC, it is worth opening it up now and again and give the dust a good vacuum treatment (an ordinary household vacuum with a hose will suffice). Please ensure that your PC is powered off whilst doing this and try not to touch any internal components. If you're unable to access the innards of your computer, then the next best step is to give any fan or air vents the same treatment.

Specialist vacuums

Most specialist computer vacuum cleaners are hand-held devices that run on batteries. When choosing one, be sure not to buy a cheap 'novelty' one.
These can be often identified by the size of the vacuum and more often than not, offer no suction power whatsoever.
Size matters PC vacuums tend to be quite sturdy affairs and are usually about twice the size of an adult's hand. Of course, it is always worth asking friends and colleagues if they have had any experience with them and always look online before buying to check for reviews on what are the best on offer.
