Monitor cleaning is a specialist service that involves the removal of dirt, dust, and fingerprints from the computer screen. A deep clean or spring-cleaning process of a monitor, LCD, LED, VDU, or flat-panel display screen is accomplished with the help of microfibre cloth, screen cleaning wipes, anti-static brush, and monitor screen fluid spray.
A thorough but gentle procedure is carried out on the front and back of the monitor screen to remove dirt, dust, and residues, and to give the monitor panel a fresh look and to restore the picture and visual quality of the screen.

LCD and LED screens are made of plastic materials, unlike the big shiny curved glass tubes of yesteryear. This soft plastic film is vulnerable to scratches, damage by sharp articles and/or improper cleaners. All these screens require special attention to clean properly and safely.
Things NOT To Do:
• Do not clean with the monitor turned on
• Do not press on the screen with your fingernails or other objects
• Do not apply excessive wiping pressure
• Do not use dirty, abrasive or linty cloths
• Do not use any alcohol except isopropyl alcohol*
• Do not use any cleaners, such as acetone, which contains ketones as they will destroy plastics and the anti-glare coatings quite quickly.
• Do not use ammonia cleaning products.
• Do not allow liquid to run into the edges under the frame of the screen.
• Do not use Kleenex, paper towels, sponges or other coarse shop towels! These materials may contain abrasives that can scratch the surface coatings as well as leaving lint on your screen.
Good Things To Do:
• Work with the screen display turned off and cool.
• Wipe the screen using light pressure.
• Use clean, lint-free cotton, microfiber cloths or low-lint wipes.
• Use water, diluted isopropyl alcohol (in moderation) or, ideally, a specially formulated, low impact screen cleaning solution.
• Apply solutions to the cloth then wipe the screen with the cloth to avoid the possibility of excess moisture running into the frame of the device.
• Use a vacuum with a clean soft brush attachment or a clean soft brush to remove dust from edges or corners.
Computer Monitor Maintenance
WARNING: Before cleaning the monitor, unplug the monitor power cable from the electrical outlet.
For best practices, follow the instructions in the list below while unpacking, cleaning, or handling your monitor:
• To clean your anti-static screen, lightly dampen a soft, clean cloth with water. If possible, use a special screen-cleaning tissue or solution suitable for the antistatic coating. Do not use benzene, thinner, ammonia, abrasive cleaners, or compressed air.
• Use a lightly-dampened, warm cloth to clean the monitor. Avoid using detergent of any kind as some detergents leave a milky film on the monitor.
• If you notice white powder when you unpack your monitor, wipe it off with a cloth.
• Handle your monitor with care as a darker-coloured monitor may get scratched and show white scuff marks more than a lighter-coloured monitor.
• To help maintain the best image quality on your monitor, use a dynamically changing screensaver and turn off your monitor when not in use.

Monitor Screen Cleaning Procedure
Make sure your computer monitor is powered off and unplugged from your CPU. With the help of a dry towel first, gently remove the access dust setting on the surface of your monitor. Don’t harshly rub the dry towel over the surface of the monitor or put pressure on the screen this can cause damage to the system. When the access dust is removed, use a vacuum cleaner (with pointy nozzle and brush attachment) to extract the dust, hair, and other tiny particle stuck in the vents of your PC.
These dust particles block the cool air circulation to the circuit board of the monitor which may cause overheating and can potentially cause your system to catch fire or completely fail. You can also use the cotton buds to unblock the vents but don’t use the compressed air can as the air blast will push the dust and particles inside the monitor. The trick is to use the air extraction method to suck out the dust, hair, and other particles.
For the PC screen apply a small amount of the cleaning solution or spray on a microfiber cloth or on a clean towel and gently rub it over the screen to remove residues. Don’t spray directly on the screen or use a large amount of cleaning solution. For the best cleaning results use computer screen wipes to remove stains, debris, and marks on your screen. If you mistakenly apply more cleaning liquid, you can dry it with the help of microfiber cloth or any dry clean towel.
How to Clean Your PC CD / DVD Player Lenses?
The first thing that will come to mind is to clean the CD because there might be dust on the optical surface or it may already be full of scratches. However, when you look at the CD, it does not have any scratch and it is as clean and clear as a new disc.
For sure, there are moments that you experience skipping CDs whenever you play them on your CD player.
Now you are wondering, what might possibly cause the CD to skip? Actually, one good reason for skipping CD is a dirty CD player lens. If that is the case, then you need to clean the lens so you can play the CDs again as smoothly as possible.
Here are the simple steps to clean your CD player lens:
1. Turn off the CD player and unplug all the cords and cables connected to and from it.
2. Detach the top cover of the CD player. Get an appropriately sized screwdriver to remove all the screws attached to the CD player cover.
3. After unscrewing, keep the cover and the screws in a safe place so you can retrieve them easily after you finish cleaning the lens.
4. Look for the CD head or the lens unit of the CD player. If you are unfamiliar with it, it is a dark box made of plastic that contains a glass lens, usually colour blue. You should be able to locate the lens because that is what you need to clean.
5. Get a cotton swab or a q-tip and some isopropyl or rubbing alcohol. Now, dampen the cotton swab using a small amount of alcohol. Clean the lens by gently swabbing the q-tip across the glass lens. Make sure to do this very softly and gently as lenses are very sensitive.
6. Afterward, get another dry cotton swab and use it to wipe the lens from corner to corner. The dry cotton swab will absorb all the moisture left when you earlier swab it with alcohol. Do not stop wiping the area unless you are already certain that the lens is completely dry.
7. Get the top cover of the CD player and the screws. Reattach it to the CD player by perfectly realigning and tightly screwing the head bolt screw back into the player.
8. Once you are sure that you have properly put the cover back, connect the plugs and cables to the CDs. Plug the cord and turn on the CD player. Play the CD you used earlier that experienced skipping. The CD should not be skipping this time.
It is necessary that you always clean your CDS and other discs, as well as your CD players to ensure that listening to music will not be a bothersome experience for you. Listening to music is one of the great ways for relaxation and so you, should not be stressed out by skipping CDs.
You can achieve almost the same cleaning results as a professional will do. The trick is to take your time and use quality products when cleaning your monitor screen.
