Spring Cleaning Dos and Don'ts for Your Tech Accessories


Spring is in the air, and that means it's time not just to dust off your shelves but also to give some love to your tech accessories. From keyboards and cables to headphones and screens, your tech gadgets could use a good clean-up to keep them running smoothly, bacteria-free, and looking their best. Here's a rundown of dos and don'ts for your tech spring cleaning routine:


Cable Care: Inspect cables for any fraying or tearing, and avoid bending or twisting them excessively. Investing in a quality cable like Austere HDMI cables, crafted with Kevlar, ensures reliable performance for your tech setup. Make sure to keep them clean and organized to prevent damage and ensure uninterrupted connectivity.

Optimize Airflow: Optimizing airflow for devices like laptops and gaming consoles is crucial. Use compressed air to remove dust from vents and fans. This prevents overheating and ensures your devices run smoothly.

Dust and Wipe Down Regularly: Regular dusting and wiping are your first lines of defense against the accumulation of grime on your tech accessories. Use a soft microfiber cloth to gently remove dust and fingerprints from screens, keyboards, and device surfaces. Ensure your devices stay spotless and germ-free with Austere Clean and Protect, the ultimate solution that effectively eliminates bacteria while keeping your tech clean.

Maximize Your Power System: Don't overlook the importance of changing your surge protector every 5-7 years. Over time, surge protectors can wear out, diminishing their ability to protect your electronics from power surges. Stay ahead of potential risks and invest in a high-quality surge protector like the Austere V Series 6-Outlet


Use Harsh Chemicals: Avoid harsh chemicals and abrasive wipes when cleaning your technology. These substances can damage sensitive screens or the surface coatings of devices. Stick to specially formulated tech-friendly cleaners like Austere Clean & Protect, designed to effectively clean without causing harm to your devices.

Spray Liquid Directly on Devices: Never spray cleaning solutions directly onto your devices. Always dampen your cloth and gently wipe to prevent liquid from seeping into exposed components. 

Neglect Ports and Vents: Dust and debris tend to accumulate in ports and vents, affecting performance. Use a small, soft brush to remove dust from these areas gently.

Daisy-Chain: It's crucial to avoid daisy-chaining multiple power strips or surge protectors together. This can overload circuits, increase fire risks, and diminish the effectiveness of surge protection. Instead, use a single high-quality surge protector with multiple outlets to ensure safety and optimal performance for your devices.

Spring cleaning isn't just for your living space – give your tech accessories the care they deserve. Embrace a clutter-free, sparkling setup and ensure your devices are primed for optimal performance all year round. Try Austere Clean & Protect today!
