Why do you Need to Clean Your Console?
A dirty console can lead to:
✅Damaging the interior system of the gaming system.
✅Severe heating issues.
✅Interior fans getting clogged.
And much more unimaginable things.
If that doesn’t encourage you to clean your gaming console, its health aspects will.
I get it. You are keeping the gaming console behind closed doors, but that doesn’t mean it won’t catch dirt.
You see, your hands aren’t pure like the GANGES.
It doesn’t matter how many times you have washed your hands.
Still, somehow, dirt will find a way to mess up with your console and more importantly, your health.
There’s a popular saying:
“HEALTH IS WEALTH”
…are nothing but the tip of an iceberg.
There are many similar germs that can make your life miserable in the form of dirt on your gaming console.
How to Clean your Gaming Console?
At a time when the dirt is messing up with your gaming console and possibly your health, it is super important that you clean up your PC regularly.
There are some tips and tricks that you can implement to make sure your gaming console has a long life.
In a gaming console, its casing, Lens, and vents are the most important parts.
So, don’t complain to me later if I pay special attention to these three parts.
If you are looking to clean the casing and vent from the dust particles, I would recommend you to use microfiber cloths on it once a week.
To be honest. this microfiber cloth will definitely clean up the casing and vents from the outside.
You can use it to remove smudges, fingerprints dust that is present outside of the console.
But what if you want to clean the vents more thoroughly. I mean to say – From the insides?
You see not everyone can open up their gaming console to clean it up from the inside.
So for that, compressed air can is the most useful thing as it can be used effectively to blow out the dust particles from the gaming console.
CLEANING THE DIRTY GAMING CONTROLLER
When using a gaming console like Xbox, PS, Nintendo, or anything else, how do you play games?
Using a controller, right?
I have said this before, I will say this again.
Your hands are as dirty as a TOILET SEAT.
So, every time when you touch the Gaming controller with your hands, it’s transferring all the dirt to your controller.
So, it would be best if you clean your Xbox One controller, Nintendo Switch joystick, or a PS4 controller, using disinfectant wipes.
When using the wipes, make sure to pay special attention to the triggers area as that is the area where most of the germs pile up like crazy.
In case it is getting hard for you to reach a particular place, use a cotton swab to clean up all the dirt.
POLISHING THE GAMING CONSOLE
That was all about how to clean your PC, gaming console for maintaining its raw performance.
But what about looks?
Don’t you want your Gaming Console to shine like new every week?
When you are making too much effort of cleaning the console every week, All this would be a waste if you are not polishing it to give it the looks of a new gaming console.
You can use any screen shiner available in the market and apply it on top of the Nintendo Switch, Xbox, or Playstation gaming console.
I would recommend you to apply this every week after you finish cleaning up the dust off your gaming console as it reduces its chances of getting dust, oil, smudges, and fingerprint marks.
It isn’t that you can’t use your gaming console without cleaning, you can. But if you want to make sure they work smoothly in the long run. Then it’s best if you do this type of cleaning every week,
Not only your console, but cleaning also helps in getting rid of unnecessary dirt around you.
Thereby protecting you from any severe health issues.
That is all for now.
