General Precautions

  • No food or drink should be next to Chromebooks.


  • Cords, cables, and removable storage devices (e.g. thumb drives) must be inserted carefully into appropriate port on the Chromebooks.


  • Chromebooks should not be used or stored near pets.


  • Chromebooks should not be used with the power cord plugged in when the cord may be a tripping hazard.


  • Heavy objects should never be placed on top of Chromebooks.


  • Before closing the screen, make sure there is nothing on the keyboard to prevent the full closure of the device. Obstacles on the keyboard could cause broken screens or damaged hinges.

Screen Care

  • The Chromebook screen can be damaged if subjected to heavy objects, rough treatment, some cleaning solvents, and other liquids.  The screens are particularly sensitive to damage from excessive pressure.


  • Do not put pressure on the top of a Chromebook when it is closed.


  • Do not store a Chromebook with the screen open.


  • Make sure there is nothing on the keyboard before closing the lid (e.g. pens, pencils, or disks).


  • Never lift the Chromebook by the screen.


  • Only clean the screen with a soft, dry microfiber cloth or anti-static cloth.



Cleaning/Sanitizing Your Chromebook

  • Do not use any chemicals or other liquids to clean your Chromebook.


  • Turn off the chromebook you want to disinfect and make sure it is unplugged


  • Disconnect any cables or peripherals that are plugged into your Chromebook. This will allow you to access and clean every part of the device.


  • Remove dirt, dust and crumbs from the keyboard by using a can of compressed air. Hold the can approximately 6 inches from the keyboard and spray along the perimeter of each key.


  • Sanitize the keyboard by using a disinfectant wipe or a soft, linen-free cloth dipped in isopropyl alcohol. (Cloth should not drip) Rub the cloth or wipe on the top and sides of each key and then clean the surface and bottom of the keyboard thoroughly.


  • Use microfiber cloth to wipe down the screen.
