6 things you should keep in mind while cleaning your TV screen – Times of India
Everyone likes a television screen that is free of dust, dirt and smudges. Many people clean their TV just like any other appliance in their house but you should keep in mind that using the wrong methods can damage the screen. It can also sometimes void the warranty of the appliance as well. To help you clean your TV screen in the right way, here are a few tips that you can follow.
Use microfiber or non-static clothes
Most screens are sensitive to pressure and are prone to scratches. Even the fibers on tissue and towels can damage the screen. It is recommended to use a microfiber cloth to clean your TV screen whether it is LCD, OLED, plasma, or an old-school CRT display. This type of cloth is suitable for removing fingerprints and smudges without damaging your TV screen.
Don’t spray any liquid on TV
While cleaning your TV, you should not spray any kind of cleaning liquid on it. Cleaning liquids can damage internal parts of your TV. If you wish to use a liquid to clean your appliance, you should spray it on the cloth first. Using extra liquid can also leave residue on the TV. You should not use products containing ammonia, alcohol, or acetone as they can damage the anti-glare coating.
Keep your TV off while cleaning
You should always keep your TV off while cleaning as it reduces the chances of any electrical mishaps. It is also easier to spot and remove the streaks when the screen is black. Dust is better visible on a dark screen.
Wipe the screen in any one direction first
While cleaning your TV screen, you should first wipe in one direction (vertically or horizontally) and in the second time you should do it in the opposite direction. This way helps to make sure no spot on the screen is left. It also helps to avoid the streaks that screen gets while cleaning.
Turn the cloth after few wipes
You should turn the cleaning cloth after a few wipes on your TV screen as it picks up dust. Once the cloth picks excessive dust, it can leave scratches on the screen while wiping. By turning the cloth, you can pick up more dust from the screen without any rough patch.
Let the screen dry
Once you are done cleaning the screen of your TV, you should let it dry if you have used any cleaning products. Wet spots can create a glare on the screen that is easily visible.
