  • Never use hard water or harsh chemicals such as bleach or other sprays. 
  • Avoid using dirty clothes to wipe down the screen or other areas.
  • Alcohol wipes can damage some screens. Some electrical companies don’t recommend using alcohol wipes or sprays on TV screens.
  • Use an air purifier in your living area which can reduce dust particles from the area.
  • Read the cleaning instructions provided with TV unit manual. Tv screens such as plasma and LCD require more attention while cleaning.
  • Use a feather duster to dust the tv outside surfaces on a regular basis. 
  • If the back of your Tv unit is packed with dust then move the TV cabinets and vacuum the floor once or twice in a month. Wipe down the area carefully without stretching electronic cables or TV screens. Use a dustpan to gather the dust and hair easily. 
  • Do a regular dusting of the Tv screen and cabinet to maintain the unit as new for a longer time. Dusting can also maintain the sound quality of the unit.
