Think about everything your hands will touch today. Now imagine all that on your devices. The touchscreen has become the dominant digital interface, from cellphones to tablets to laptops. Not only do we carry our devices with us 24/7, but touchscreens are at the doctor's office, the airport, vending machines, and everywhere else. Dirt and germs are right behind, smearing up the screen with unsightly grime that can lead to slow and jumpy navigation on your devices.
So what's the best way to keep your tech tidy and sanitary? A brief Google search reveals there's a huge variety of products on the market that claim to be both safe and effective for wiping down screens. But being in the AV installation field, we know there's more to tech maintenance than just using any product out there.
It was hard to recommend anything to our clients who wanted to keep their displays looking like new. Most of them contain alcohol, ammonia, and other ingredients that not only leave a residue, but might not be safe for the types of materials that make up matte and gloss bezels. We know keeping any tech clean can be a challenging task, due to the fragile materials that make up phones, computers, and especially touchscreen devices.
At AV Agents, we realized there's no high-quality screen cleaner that we could trust to eliminate grime and leave behind a streak-free shine on all our displays without potentially damaging them. So we decided to step in and design the first fully synthetic, polymer-based cleaning solution made in the U.S.
SC-551 is specially formulated to break down the oils that get transferred from our skin to the screen, which help accumulate dirt and fingerprints and contribute to a dull, grimy look and feel on your devices and monitors. SC-551 is safe to use on all LCD and LED displays and monitors, plus frames and other equipment.
We recommend using our product with a microfiber cloth, like the one we include with every bottle. This helps prevent the scratches, residue, dust, and lint that paper towels or regular cloths can leave behind. Applying an even layer of SC-551 can also help repel fingerprints and dirt, so you don't have to worry about constantly wiping down your devices.
Taking care of your tech can extend that just-out-of-the-box look and feel. It can be disappointing when your new toy is dusty and dingy after only a few weeks of use. Like everything that you use on a daily basis, it's important to look after any device for both aesthetic and functionality. Every time your hands come in contact with a touchscreen, they pass on the dirt, germs, and oils that inevitably come along for the ride--don't let them get in the way of enjoying the best tech experience possible.
