Screen Size, Humidity, Temperature

February 23, 2010 | By Mandy Peterson

Listed are a few factors that can affect the way you clean your screen :

  • Size of the screen
  • Humidity of the room
  • Temperature of the screen surface

On a small display you can reasonably clean the whole screen at one time.  On a large screen you may want to clean half or a third of the screen at a time.

The lower the humidity of the room the higher the static electricity that will be present. This will in part cause more dust/debris to collect on your screen surface.

Trying to clean the whole surface of a flat panel screen that is still warm will result in streaking and the likelihood that you will damage the screen coatings.

Next week will discuss the best techniques in using liquid cleaning solutions.
