Tips on How To Take Care of Your Mobile and Computer Display.

With the evolution of smartphones and other electronic devices, we are increasingly dependent on our screens for everything from work to entertainment. Device screen care is a form of protection and maintenance given to electronic screens, such as flat-screen televisions, computer monitors, mobile phones, and tablet screens, to avoid scratches and smears

 and keep them looking clean. Whether caused by normal wear and tear or inflicted by external environmental factors screens are susceptible to damage when used often. Screen care is important to prevent damage to the display, which could lead to a costly repair or replacement.

Here are some great ways to keep your screen safe and secure and maintain its durability;

1. Use of screen protectors.

Screen Protectors are tiny pieces of plastic or glass that cover your display. They offer a balance between easy usage and protection while still looking great on your device. Screen protectors are affordable and help to keep your screen safe from scratches, bumps, and dings. There are many different types of screen protectors, and that can be difficult to figure out which ones are right for you.

Screen protectors come in various thicknesses, the most common being .3mm or .5mm. The higher the number, the thicker the screen protector is; you’ll want to pick a screen protector that’s thick enough to provide adequate protection but thin enough that it won’t interfere with the touchscreen experience. There are plenty of reasons to consider when protecting your device’s screen. Screen Protectors protect our devices and make them last longer. The fact that they reduce the risk of scratches and smudges on your screen saves you time, money, and effort with time-consuming repairs. Screen protectors are designed with a specific purpose in mind, which is why they are not only applicable to smartphone devices but also to PCs and laptops.

Here’s how to install a screen protector:

  1. Clean the screen with a microfiber cloth or soft, lint-free cloth.
  2. Apply a thin layer of screen protector using an applicator card.
  3. Peel off the backing sheet and apply the screen protector to your screen with slow, even pressure.
  4. Attach the frame around the edges of the screen protector with tape or suction cups.

Remember to use a screen protector specifically designed for your device model and brand.

Screen protectors are a must-have for people who spend a lot of time on their phones and tablets. Not only can it help prevent physical damage, but the cost of replacing a cracked or damaged screen is also often substantially more than installing a screen protector. They’re inexpensive, easy to install, and can save your phone from damage.

2. Dusting and Cleaning

In today’s digital age, we rely heavily on our electronic devices such as smartphones, laptops, tablets, and televisions for both work and leisure. However, frequent use of these devices leads to a build-up of dust and smudges on the screens, making it difficult to view the content clearly. Not only does a dirty screen hinder our ability to use these devices effectively, but it also affects the overall hygiene of our gadgets. Dust and germs can accumulate on the surface of the screens, leading to health problems and damage to the devices. Regular cleaning and dusting of screens are, therefore, necessary to ensure that they remain in optimal condition.

Here is the proper way on how you should clean your device’s screen.

  1. To clean your device’s screen or case, power off your device and unplug all cables and remove the battery if possible.
  2. Use a microfiber or soft, lint-free cloth to wipe down any dust or dirt inside it.
  3. If you want to sanitize your screen, use a product like rubbing alcohol, Clorox Wipes, or Lysol Disinfecting Wipes.
  4. You can also use compressed air to get off dust particles stuck between keys on your keyboard or around the edges of your screen protector.
  5. Never use any paper products or tissues because these will scratch your screen.
  6. Never use sharp or abrasive objects to clean your device because they can scratch the screen or damage its protective covering.

Dusting and cleaning your device screens is a vital part of maintaining the functionality and hygiene of your electronic gadgets. Regular cleaning not only helps to enhance your viewing experience but also helps to prevent the accumulation of germs and dust, which can cause damage to the devices and even lead to health problems. By following the best practices and using the right tools, you can keep your device screens clean and clear, ensuring that you get the most out of your gadgets for years to come. So, make sure to add screen cleaning and dusting to your regular maintenance routine and enjoy the benefits of clean and hygienic screens.

If your screen is cracked or damaged, you might need to replace it. The same goes for your screen protector if it’s scratched or faded. Screen and protector replacement optimizes device performance and prevents further cracks and damage. Here are some tips on how to remove them:

  1. Use a credit card or similar tool, to gently pry up the edges of the screen protector. It should pop right off.
  2. Using a microfiber cloth, carefully wipe away any dust or debris underneath the screen protector.
  3. Peel off the old screen protector and place it in a bowl of warm water with some mild dish soap for about 10 minutes so that all the glue comes off.
  4. Remove any remaining adhesive residue with a wet paper towel once everything has cooled down, and carefully lay down your new screen protector onto your phone’s touchscreen until it’s completely seated at both ends, don’t just press down on one end.
  5. If needed, use some more gentle pressure around the edges with tweezers to help push out any air bubbles from under the new protector before applying pressure with your fingers along each side of its edge, so that it sits flush against your phone.


There are so many ways to protect your screens and keep them safe. The importance of screen care cannot be emphasized and should be adhered to maximize your device’s lifespan. Whether you’re looking for a permanent solution or a temporary fix for when you are on the go, you’ve got a few options to choose from.
