    Hoovers Suck..Right?

    Recently I have been using the hoover nozzle/hose for cleaning my ps3.
    It works like a dream afterwards and is quieter than a fart in a thunderstorm, however, i have just read on youtube that ps systems
    and hoovers are not a good mix and to keep them clear from each other.
    If this is the case, what is the best way to clean it?
    Oh, and apparently , baby wipes aren't good either......

    A can of compressed air is all you need. They only cost a few bucks.

    I've been using a vacuum on my main ps3 since '11 and haven't had any issues yet. I just keep the hose a inch or two off the vents so the suction isn't as strong. I've tried the compress air but it seemed to just blow the dust further into the system.

    A small low-pressure vacuum designed specifically for cleaning electronics is your best bet.

    Compressed air is a very lazy method that doesn't actually solve the problem of dust in the system, as Javro mentioned.

    As for answering your question, the manufacturer of the vacuum is irrelevant. Hoovers are just as effective as any other vacuum.

    This is true it does push it further in, however you got to use the right angle lol. I use Duster and the vacuum myself. Actually haven't touched my PS4 yet with anything but soon enough I will.

    You guys are going to end up sucking one of those screws loose

    I've yet to really try anything to clean my system yet. We have a industrial vacuum at home, but I'm thinking that's not a good idea to use. I think any vacuum made for house cleaning would be too much.

    I think Helyx's suggestion for a small electronics vacuum is the best bet.

    I should clean my PS3 soon. I've almost had it for a year now.
