If you do not fol­low cer­tain rules for the care of the LCD mon­i­tor, then the life of dig­i­tal equip­ment will be sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduced. To avoid loss of col­or sat­u­ra­tion, an excel­lent visu­al image, you need to fol­low sim­ple rules for car­ing for the LCD screen. Con­sid­er the most pop­u­lar ways to effec­tive­ly clean the sur­face of the TV, as well as options for prod­ucts that are strict­ly for­bid­den to wipe plas­ma and LCD TVs.

To stop clean­ing the mon­i­tor is to spoil the excel­lent vis­i­bil­i­ty of the screen in advance. After all, due to the accu­mu­la­tion of dust from a sta­t­ic charge of elec­tric­i­ty, it sig­nif­i­cant­ly degrades image qual­i­ty.

You already have a plas­ma or LCD TV at home, or just plan­ning the appro­pri­ate pur­chase, it is advis­able to get acquaint­ed with how to prop­er­ly clean it with­out caus­ing any harm to the thin screen coat­ing.

Effective Screen Care Techniques

So that LCD and plas­ma TVs, con­sist­ing of sev­er­al lay­ers that are sen­si­tive to aggres­sive clean­ing, do not lose col­or con­trast, you should lis­ten to the opin­ion of man­u­fac­tur­ers of mod­ern tech­nol­o­gy. Pro­fes­sion­als advise clean­ing only with prod­ucts spe­cial­ly designed for this pur­pose.

Con­sid­er the most pop­u­lar ways:

  1. Moist­ened wipes. They can wipe plas­ma pan­els and LED sur­faces. Moist­ened wipes effec­tive­ly clean the sur­face, do not con­tain abra­sive sub­stances, alco­hol addi­tives that can dam­age the screen, and also remove sta­t­ic elec­tric­i­ty.
  2. Set of dry and wet wipes. They have an anti­sta­t­ic effect, ide­al­ly cope with any dirt, and dry wipes absorb mois­ture and pre­vent streaks and streaks on plas­ma and LCD screens.
  3. Dry soft lint-free wipes — they are used to remove dust from the LCD screen. In order to remove oth­er types of con­t­a­m­i­nants, it is nec­es­sary to apply spe­cial clean­ing agents (aerosols, gels).
  4. Microfiber cloths do a good job with greasy stains, fin­ger­prints, set­tled dust. If nec­es­sary, it can be moist­ened with a clean­ing agent or plain water. Microfiber fab­ric per­fect­ly absorbs excess mois­ture with­out leav­ing scratch­es.
  5. Aerosols, gels, foams. The com­po­si­tion of clean­ing prod­ucts does not include alco­hol and sub­stances with aller­gens. By using an anti­sta­t­ic spray or foam, the entire sur­face of the screen is cov­ered with a lay­er that reduces sta­t­ic charge. The clean­ing agent is first applied to a microfiber cloth or soft cloth, then the LCD screen is wiped.
  6. The best option for high-qual­i­ty care of equip­ment is con­sid­ered to be a kit that includes a clean­ing agent in a bot­tle, a microfiber cloth, and an anti­sta­t­ic brush. The kit nec­es­sar­i­ly includes instruc­tions for use, some­times there are addi­tion­al acces­sories for more thor­ough use.

In this way, you can wipe not only the TV, but also any type of mon­i­tor, for exam­ple, a tablet, com­put­er or lap­top. Choose a tool based on your own pref­er­ences and bud­get.

Unsuitable Substances for Cleaning the TV Screen

The use of sub­stances suit­able for clean­ing and clean­ing in every­day life is com­plete­ly unsuit­able for clean­ing LCD pan­els. All kinds of sol­vents, clean­ing agents with abra­sive par­ti­cles, ammo­nia, ace­tone con­tain­ing solu­tions, gaso­line and eth­yl alco­hol adverse­ly affect the screen. Wip­ing the pan­el with the fol­low­ing sub­stances is hope­less­ly ruin­ing the equip­ment:

  1. Ordi­nary wet wipes for hygiene needs con­tain harm­ful sub­stances that leave streaks.
  2. In dis­pos­able nap­kins, tow­els are dense par­ti­cles that scratch the sur­face.
  3. Alco­hol solu­tions eas­i­ly dis­solve the anti-reflec­tive coat­ing. As a result, small cracks will appear.
  4. Food or caus­tic soda, wash­ing pow­der spoil a thin lay­er of a cov­er­ing.
  5. Prod­ucts used in the kitchen or bath­room, for wash­ing dish­es, win­dows or tiles con­tain ace­tone or ammo­nia, so their use has an extreme­ly unpleas­ant effect on liq­uid crys­tal pan­els.

Helpful Hints

  1. For your own safe­ty, unplug the appli­ance. An extin­guished, dark mon­i­tor will give out all traces of pol­lu­tion, they will be bet­ter vis­i­ble, which will con­tribute to their rapid cleans­ing.
  2. A soft, lint-free cloth is great for pick­ing up dust.
  3. Press­ing, scrap­ing, scratch­ing with nails, var­i­ous objects is pro­hib­it­ed due to the fragili­ty of the anti-reflec­tive coat­ing.
  4. Do not spray direct­ly onto the con­t­a­m­i­nat­ed sur­face, not onto a lint-free or microfiber cloth. Make sure to keep it mois­tur­ized, but not too wet.
  5. In a room with good light­ing, clean­ing is much more con­ve­nient.
  6. Con­nect to the mains only after the sur­face of the TV has com­plete­ly dried.

It is not enough to wipe the TV pan­el, it is nec­es­sary to care­ful­ly care for the entire body, do not allow dust to accu­mu­late on the entire sur­face.
