This is why we cringe when we see YouTube videos on how to clean dirty computers. These videos show people just opening up a computer and blowing it out with compressed air – inside their home or office. No breathing mask, no dust cover, no ventilation. This is just plain irresponsible.
The proper way to clean a dirty computer is to put on a breathing mask, take the system outside and use a can of compressed air to blow the dust out. We also recommend that you use a HEPA vacuum cleaner to capture as much of the dust as possible. Remove the video card, CPU heat sink and other dirty components and dust them out separately.
But you can prevent the build-up of dust and prolong the life of your PC with Clean-Aire Computer Enclosures. Let the dust and dirt build up in the filter. Then just clean and reuse the K&N Filter. It’s that simple. But, don’t clean your filters too soon. Even with all the dirt built up on the filter shown here, air flow was not restricted.
