What are the 5 steps to clean your switchboard

Step 1: Follow The Safety Measures

The switchboard is electrical components. It is dangerous if you clean it with a liquid. Therefore, you must follow safety measures to avoid electric shocks during cleaning. 

Start by turning off the main power to the house. Remember to clean at the beginning of the day to take advantage of the natural light. 

Step 2: Unscrew The Cover of The Switchboard

Simply removing the cover will make the process simple. When unscrewing, keep the screw in a separate box. So you don’t lose it. Now you can clean the cracks and rub off the dirt and stains. 

Step 3: Remove The Dust Inside

Dust can collect inside the switchboard through the gap between the cover and the wall.

First, clean and remove the dust inside using a toothbrush or paintbrush. If you cannot remove the dust in a small space, you can use water pressure to clean it. 

Only then can you scrub the dirt and stains out of the plastic covers 

Step 4: Disinfect The Switch and Electrical Cover

Now create soap solutions or switchboard cleaning solutions by mixing liquid soap in a bowl of warm water. 

You can soak the electrical cover inside the switchboard cleaning solution for 10 or 15 minutes.

While the cover is inside the bowl of soaking water. You can disinfect the switch with dry towels dampened with water or with a paper towel. Be very careful not to spray the switcher with water because of the wiring inside

Step 5: Scrub and Dry Everything

Put the scrubbing brush in the switchboard cleaning solution you have prepared. Scrub all the covers after soaking them.

Rinse the switchboard compound under running water and dry it.

Once you are sure that the covers, switches, and everything else is dry, you can screw them on and turn on the main power. 

You cannot see the bacteria in your eyes. Regular cleaning of the switchboard is therefore necessary. So now you know the five steps to clean your switchboard.
