How to Care For and Maintain your LED Screen Display

September 19, 2022

Although there are several benefits to having an LED screen display, such as the amazing brightness and quality of the picture, these screens require extra care to ensure their longevity. And with the average lifespan of an LED screen display lasting up to 100,000 hours, you want to make sure yours lives up to this number!

From the Fortec US team, here are some tips on how to care for and maintain your LED screen display so that it can serve you well throughout its lifespan:

Clean Regularly

Screens need to be cleaned as often as possible to preserve the display’s quality, so it’s important to adopt an effective regular cleaning routine. It’s recommended that you clean the surface with a microfiber cloth and water only. If you need to use a solvent, make sure it’s diluted with plenty of water before using it on the display.

Be Gentle

Display screens are an investment that should always be treated with care. Display screens are valuable and can be very fragile. To ensure they stay working correctly and don’t get damaged. Be mindful not to drop or lean too hard against it and always handle it as gently as possible. 

Avoid Touching Your Display (If It’s Not a Touch Screen)

It’s best to avoid touching the screen as much as possible. Touching the screen can leave fingerprints and smudges on the screen, reducing the clarity of content. It is also important not to apply any object with a sharp edge (e.g., pens) or anything with a sticky surface (e.g., tape) onto or near the display, as these items, can leave marks on the display surface that are difficult or impossible to remove.

Keep it Out of Direct Sunlight

Your screen is designed for optimal use in well-lit environments, so it should never be exposed to direct sunlight, as the sun’s intense UV rays can damage your screen over time. Also, consider not using it at times when the sun is most intense, like during lunchtime or late in the day. If you have a window nearby, try closing the blinds or curtains on the window.
