Seven Tips To Clean Your Mechanical Keyboard



Mechanical keyboards can greatly enhance your gaming experience as well as your productivity. They provide more precision when typing than conventional keyboards.

If your mechanical keyboard needs cleaning, you can remove the switches and clean the area under the keys. You can also clean it daily with a compressed air spray or use a hand vacuum cleaner by pressing on the appropriate nozzle. Regular cleaning is not only necessary for aesthetic and hygienic reasons, but also for functionality.


Let's look in more detail at how you can perfectly clean a mechanical keyboard.

Cleaned the keyboard surfaces


Use a slightly dampened soft cloth to gently wipe the surfaces and the exterior of the mechanical keyboard. You may need to repeat the procedure as you will have to remove any sticky debris or dirt that is stuck to the surface. This will help minimize the amount of pollutants settling on the keys and mechanical switches and could cause a problem later on. You can also use a wet disposable cleaning cloth.

Encountered the liquid spilled on a mechanical keyboard



If you have an accident and spill some liquid on your mechanical keyboard, such as coffee, juice, the first thing to do is to remove the excess liquid with an absorbent paper towel or bath towel. If using a USB mechanical keyboard, make sure to disconnect it from your computer. Then let the keyboard dry completely before trying anything else. This usually lasts at least one 24 hours or more.

Remove all keys

One of the many advantages of mechanical keyboards is that you can clean them without having to disassemble the entire keyboard. Use a tool called a keycap puller that looks like a small plastic tweezer to remove all the keys. On many mechanical keyboards, such as some of Razer's suggestions, the keycap puller is included as an accessory. Otherwise you will not find it difficult to find it on the market.

To remove all the keys, simply push down each key with the keycap puller and then pull it up. Try to keep the keys sorted so that it's easy to apply them again. For example, you can put all the keys on the right side of the keyboard sorted together and all the keys on the left can be sorted separately.

Key Wash

Remove all keys and wash them using a mild dishwasher and warm to warm water. Make sure you remove any debris or dirt from each key as you wash it. You can also dip the keys in a bowl of warm water with a mild dish detergent. Leave the keys for a while and then wipe them well. In any case, let the keys dry completely before businesses can reposition them on the keyboard.

Using compressed air

One of the easiest ways to keep the keyboard clean is by regularly spraying with a compressed air spray on its surface. This will remove all dust and dirt that has reached the hard-to-reach places between the keys.


Use a hand vacuum cleaner

The biggest problem with using a compressed air spray is that they do not completely remove dust and dirt. Basically, it just 'blows' them to settle somewhere else in the room. Therefore, the best solution is to use a hand vacuum cleaner. For best results, you will need to use the appropriate nozzle. This will clean your keyboard even more efficiently and stay clean for a longer time.

Manufacturer's warranty and operating instructions

Most mechanical keyboards come with a manufacturer's warranty. Many cleaning options that are used incorrectly can void your warranty. Such as washing the dishwasher or removing and lubricating the switches. So check carefully what the warranty says and read the instructions for use before continuing.
