How to Clean A 4K Monitor Properly

If your profession requires you to buy a 4k monitor, you’ll have no option but to buy one. The monitor has a great display and colour, so you see what you’re working on better. That way, you’ll not make mistakes. However, a 4K monitor is usually not a small investment. Most times, you have to spend hundreds if not thousands of dollars to get a 4K monitor. Now, after spending that amount of money to buy a 4K monitor, getting the device damaged wouldn’t be on your plans. 

In a bid to ensure the 4K monitor stands the test of time, you should maintain it properly. One of the best ways to maintain the 4K monitor is to clean it properly. As an electronic device, you can’t clean a 4K monitor like you’re cleaning a piece of furniture – you have to follow a process. Let’s take a look at how you can clean a 4K monitor properly;

Use distill water

The secret to getting a clean and tidy monitor is cleaning the device regularly. With regular cleaning periods, you’re confident that only a few amounts of dust can get on the surface of the laptop. To clean regularly, using ordinary distilled water is more than enough. First off, you have to clear all the dust on the monitor. After that, take another clean cloth (not the one you used in dusting) and immerse into distilled water. After that, squeeze all the liquid content away from the distilled water and carefully use the cloth to clean the monitor. As much as possible, ensure the cloth is a microfiber material and has a soft texture. Also, ensure there’s no water content on the cloth, so you don’t get into more trouble. 

Use Soap Mixtures

Sometimes, there may be more stains than just random dust. Usually, this happens when you don’t clean your laptop regularly. Also, it may occur when you have small children and pets living in your home. In this case, you will have stains and scratches an ordinary distilled water can’t take away. A better option will be to use a mixture of soap and water. Of course, the first step is to make a mixture of soap and water. Ensure that the water isn’t too soapy, and at the same time, it shouldn’t be filled with water. If it’s too watery, it won’t be adequate to take off the stains, but if it’s too soapy, you may need to clean the soap with water. When you’re using a soap mixture to clean your 4K monitor, the best thing you can do is to use a clean cloth. If not, you may end up having multiple stains. After cleaning the cloth, remember to dry it with a clean cloth. 

Use a screen cleaner

Although not very common, there are brands known for producing screen cleaners that you use to clean your laptop, monitor, and smartphone safely. So once you buy the screen cleaner, you can spray it on the cloth to make it damp. These screen cleaners are totally safe for your devices, unlike the earlier two discussed methods.


If you want to clean your 4K monitor, you can go through the above-mentioned steps. If you don’t have any of the products mentioned, a simple vinegar mix will work just fine. As much as possible, ensure you dry up your screen with a clean cloth after cleaning.
