How to Clean the Inside of a Computer

Based in Northvale, NJ, RCS sells cleaning equipment and janitorial products applicable in a wide array of environments, including construction and industrial workspaces in NJ and beyond. Under the direction of its president, Jason Rubach, RCS Northvale also stocks an extensive selection of supplies used to clean computers, such as compressed air, screen cleaners, and lens cleaners for optical drives.

The inside of a computer case is a breeding ground for dirt and dust bunnies, but many users rarely or never clean in there, as it seems like a big hassle. However, users can clean their computers with a minimum level of investment.

To clean a case, power off the computer and remove all cords and cables. Unscrew the case, taking care to place the screws in a safe place. Set the case aside and situate the computer upright on a smooth, flat surface. Now take a can of compressed air, insert the accompanying straw, and squeeze the trigger in short bursts. Target drive bays, clumps of wires, and the crevices between fans.

A can of air cannot remove every last speck of dust from fans, which collect dust and should be cleaned regularly. To finish what the compressed air started, take a piece of lint-free cloth and wipe down the fan blades. Use the same cloth and a dab of rubbing alcohol to clean the inside of the case, and reassemble the tower in a cleaner, safer state.

Cleaning a Keyboard with a Pressure Cleaner

RCS Northvale, an industrial cleaning and safety materials supply company located in NJ, strives to meet its customers’ varied needs. Under the leadership of President Jason Rubach, RCS Northvale offers an extensive line of cleaning products, including pressure cleaners for computer keyboards.

With regular use, computer keyboards accumulate dirt and grime. This accumulation can lead to performance issues with the keyboard, such as stuck keys, difficulty typing, or repeated characters while typing. Therefore, cleaning the keyboard with compressed air is often recommended to keep it in top working order.

To do so, first disconnect the keyboard from the computer. Then, hold the keyboard upside down and employ the compressed air cleaner. The air will dislodge and blow out any dirt and debris that has worked its way into the keyboard between the keys. Tapping on the keyboard can further encourage the foreign matter to fall out. Try holding the keyboard at several different angles to make sure that all the debris falls out. Because this can make a small mess, perform this process over a surface that can be easily cleaned.

Using an Emergency Eyewash Station

RCS Northvale, located in NJ, provides a wide array of cleaning products for clients in a variety of industries. Under the leadership of Jason Rubach, the company president, RCS Northvale sells many types of safety equipment, including eyewash stations.

An eyewash station is highly recommended, or even required, in certain types of work settings. Should certain substances or chemicals come in contact with the eye, timely use of an eyewash station can minimize discomfort and reduce the risk of permanent damage or complications. When waiting for emergency personnel to arrive, the use of an eyewash station can help control the situation and reduce pain.

To use an eyewash station effectively, the person should attempt to hold his or her eyes open while placing them under the stream of water. The eyewash station is designed to create a steady flow of water that effectively removes the chemical or substance, while at the same time being gentle enough on the eye’s surface so as not to hurt the eye. The person should remain at the station, flushing his or her eyes, until medical emergency workers provide further instructions.
