Flat screen TV has become a norm these days and hardly do people use the older television and therefore most of the homes contain flat screen TV these days but after a period of time, there would be a requirement to clean the flat screen TV from time to time but cleaning the flat screen TV is not as easy as cleaning the older television sets and therefore it is important that you know the exact procedure for cleaning the flat screen TV because then only you would be able to keep it in proper condition. This brings us to a very important question regarding how to clean flat screen TV?
These days the LCD and LED screens are available and these are very sensitive to scratches and pressure which is applied on the screen and therefore it is important that you follow a proper procedure for cleaning these televisions. If you notice the structure, you would notice that the glass screen occupies the majority of the portion of the flat screen TV and there is hardly any border of plastic and therefore you have to use the cleaning materials accordingly as well.
We would be going into the details of cleaning the flat screen TV which would help you in understanding what kind of solutions and products you need to clean the flat screen TV.
How to clean flat screen TV?
The first thing is the type of the cloth which you would be using for cleaning the flat screen TV because you cannot use a harsh clothes as that would result in scratches and therefore you have to always use a soft cloth. Microfibre cloth is fine as well. You have to only apply little pressure while cleaning the flat screen TV. You need to make sure that the TV is off when you’re cleaning it because when it is off the screen is all black and therefore it is easier for you to spot the marks and the stains which are their on the flat screen TV. Normal marks of oil as well as of grease can be easily removed with the help of a clean cloth and a proper cleaning solution.
A flat screen TV is made up of a dense network of pixels and if any network of pixel is damaged, the entire picture would not be proper and therefore you have to use a entirely soft cloth thus making sure that there would be no scratches while cleaning the flat screen TV.
If you are making the solution for cleaning the flat screen TV at your home then you can make it with white vinegar but you have to use only distilled water so that there are no impurities in it. The quantity of vinegar is also very important as well and therefore you have to measure precisely and then make the solution. You can use only white vinegar. When you are applying the solution to the cloth, you have to just make it slightly wet and then you have to wait for some of the solution to get evaporated and then start cleaning the flat screen TV. Never use a cloth which is fully dipped in the solution.
There are many ready-made solutions which are available in the form of the sprays as well which you can use to clean the flat screen TV but the best option is to make a solution yourself with proper accuracy of the contents. As we said above, at the border of the television screen, there is a plastic frame and this needs to be cleaned separately and not with the solution which is being made for the normal screen.
You should never be using any type of paper to clean the TV screen as that would result in scratches on the TV screen neither can you use the tissue paper nor can you use any other type of paper. Paper has a very harsh texture which would result in damage to the pixels as well as scratches on the screen which would distort the entire picture.
When you’re using any type of spray, make sure that you do not spray directly on the screen as that would result in extra spray being sprayed on the screen and this would flow downwards and thus damaging the screen again and therefore you have to spray on the cloth which you are using that too in a limited quantity as we mentioned above and then let the extra solution on the cloth evaporate and then only start cleaning the flat screen TV.
When you’re cleaning a flat screen TV, a gentle rub is fine and you should not be rubbing a part of the flat screen TV again and again to make it clean because that would just damage the flat screen TV. You need to ensure that your hands are clean as well so that no dirt either from your hands or either from the cloth gets deposited on the flat screen TV.
If you’re using the latest flat screen TV, then it would contain an added layer of protection on the screen which would avoid the scratches on the screen but still you have to be very careful when you’re cleaning a flat screen TV as it can be very costly to change the front glass panel of the flat screen TV in case there is any problem with that. In case any pixel is damaged, the entire picture would be damaged as well, resulting in an even higher expense.
It is important to know the pressure which is to be applied because you have to just gently rub the cloth and not exert pressure on the screen while cleaning the screen.
So, as you can see it is not that difficult to clean the flat screen TV as long as you are following the above few tips and as long as you are ensuring that the materials which you are using for cleaning the flat screen TV are completely safe and completely hygienic materials are being used for cleaning the flat screen TV so that there is no extra deposition of the dirt or any kind of contaminants on the screen of the TV while cleaning the flat screen TV and once you have looked into the precautions and the methods which we have mentioned above for cleaning the flat screen TV, it would get easier for you to clean the TV.
