Soundbar Maintenance Guide
With regular and proper maintaining, a quality soundbar can provide long-lasting service. Since it’s an electrical appliance, you need to be a little more cautious with the cleaning process.
Whenever you clean the house, just take the duster and give it a go at the soundbar. It should keep the occasional dust collecting to a minimum. But doing that won’t cover everything. You need to be thorough with your cleaning once in a while.
First, make sure the soundbar is not connected to anything via cable or Bluetooth. Take a soft micro-fiber cloth and wipe over the outside properly. The fabric should be 100% cotton. You shouldn’t use any hard material, sponges or harsh cleaning products since it can damage your soundbar beyond repairing.
A proper wipe-over with the cloth should be enough to clean the soundbar but if you think it needs to be taken a step further, take a similar cloth and dip it into water. You can also use a mild cleaning solution but make sure the cloth is completely wrung, and no extra water is left. The fabric should be damp, not wet. If water gets into the soundbar, you can say goodbye to it.
Take the damp cloth and slowly scrub over the surface. You can be firm while washing but don’t put too much pressure. After you’re done scrubbing, wipe the soundbar softly with a dry cloth. Make sure it’s completely dried off before you connect it to other devices.
If your soundbar starts to act funny or if you feel like the music is off, get a professional to check it and see if it needs replacing.
The list above was intended to highlight the features of these soundbars so you can gather the necessary information and ultimately decide on a purchase. We hope you found a product good enough for your house.
