is dust cleaning safe?

Pavilion 500-160 ev (
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

hello,

 

recently, i was searching about how can i clean my computer. I found that leaf blower and vacuum creates static electricity and this can destroy my pc. is this true? Moreover , i heard that if i leave my pc unplugged for 30 minutes then use a leaf blower 2-3 inches away from the computer it will be done successfully. any suggestions? i cannot find in my country compressed air less than 30 euros.

 

thanks in advance. 🙂

Hi,

 

30 euros seems to be outrageously high. That price must get you a 20lb propane tank size container.:smileywink:  Compressed air bottle in UK.

I'm not sure what country you're living in but Amazon in the UK shows this price for compressed air.

 

 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Star-Duster-Compressed-Flammable-400ml/dp/B000MQ7DZC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=...

 

Always make sure before cleaning inside the case to shut the pc off properly, disconnect the power cord & it's best to use an anti-static wrist strap just in case. For instance if the air is dry or you have carpeting etc.

You can pick one up cheap pretty much anywhere or online.

 

I wouldn't use a vacum. For small areas I carefully use Q-Tips..but gently around hard to reach areas. Have been doing this for years without problems.
