I usually just get the shopvac.

 

DO NOT run a strong vacuum across the keyboard.  I ended up retrieving the keys in the dust bin.

Hi rrp004 –

 

Geek Squad doesn’t have a specific physical PC cleaning service that we offer, though our precincts are definitely equipped to clean a wide range of devices should the need arise during any of our other services. If you’re uncomfortable attempting this yourself I recommend making an appointment at your local Geek Squad, where they should be able to provide you some options.

You must be careful when handling computers many manufacturers will void any warranties if you open the back and break some kind of seal they may have.

Alternatively, you can find many youtube videos that assist with fan cleaning specifically. I just highly suggest making sure you have a anti-static wristband and also have a magnetic screwdriver as especially laptops where the fan are the screws are especially tiny and you dont want to lose the screws. (coming from experience haha)
