Benefits & Advantages of Clean Computer
Personal Health and Hygiene Benefits
The first advantage is a bit obvious, but it’s worth mentioning. Bacteria, mould, and dust cause everything from allergies to asthma. Regular cleaning of computer will significantly lower the potential for sickness and create a healthier environment overall.
Advantage of reduction in overheating
Cooling fans are which reduce the heat of your PC. If dust and debris blocks the fan from rotating then the hardware parts inside your system won’t get cool air and the hot air can’t go out to the environment. Due to this overheating may occur and damage the hardware parts. To reduce overheat the fans may tend to rotate fast. Because of this energy will be lost. Especially in the cases of laptops the battery life will be reduced.
How often should I clean my computer?
Depending on your environment, you may need to clean your computer more or less often. Computer placement is one important variable. Keeping your computer on the floor allows for dust, hair, skin cells, and carpet particles to get inside easier. If you keep your computer above the floor—say, on your desk—particles are less prone to getting inside.
Dust, hair, skin cells, other gunk can build up in your computer’s fans and on inside surfaces. Ridding your computer of these things every 6 months can increase your computer’s performance.
If you’re the owner of a pet that sheds, you might want to clean your computer more often. The inside of your computer is just as susceptible to fur clogging fans and other areas of your computer. In short, if you keep your computer off the floor, don’t smoke, and don’t have shedding pets, you can probably get away with cleaning your computer once per year. If any of those things do pertain to you, you might want to clean your computer every 6, or even 3, months. And, as always, if your computer starts getting hotter than usual, open it up to check for any dust or hair build-up and then clean it.
