Cleaning a television doesn't seem like it would require much thought but in fact, using the wrong cleaner can cause some damage to your screen as well as leave residue on it. Also, television sets have different kinds of screens like plasma, LCD and the simple conventional set. Each surface requires has different requirements so be sure to only clean the surface with a specific cleaner.
Because newer LCD and plasma screens don't have that traditional glass screen, the surface is more susceptible to scratches so always use a very soft cloth on those. Make sure you clean the dust off of the screen before using any cleaner on it. Replacing a vacuum cleaner bag is a simple task once you have determined a few things:
Cleaning your television screen simply increases the image display of whatever program you are watching. Each surface is different and therefore requires different care. These pieces of equipment are huge investments and should definitely be given appropriate care. Usually dusting the equipment once or twice per week will keep it in pretty good shape but your television set should really be cleaned like this at least once per week if you watch TV regularly or once every couple of weeks if you are a light watcher.
Remember that televisions are the perfect place for dust to accumulate and you might not even notice it on a screen that stands horizontal. I know I've been surprised at how much dust gets onto my cleaning cloth when I clean my screen.
