HomePod cleaning: How to clean HomePod and keep the smart Apple speaker clean

ByFields Corrielus 2019-07-06 4637

It is the control center of the Smart Home and with its grid-like design a real eye-catcher: Apple's HomePod. But like all technical devices, a delicate grey veil emerges on it over the weeks and months, which has nothing to do with the usual grey look: dust. And possibly an unintentional mishap can even cause a spot or two. How do you get the little helper clean again? And what might endanger its function? UPDATED tells you.


When should you clean your HomePod

Usually no special or regular cleaning of the HomePod is necessary. It is sufficient to clean the HomePod from dust from time to time, e.g. by wiping your four walls with dust.

The situation is different, of course, if the smart speaker is soiled by a mishap or if individual honeycombs or holes for ventilation are blocked. In this case you can clean the HomePod extra. The following chapter will tell you what to consider when cleaning your HomePod.

The most important cleaning steps for the HomePod

To make the HomePod as clean as fresh from the box, proceed as follows:

1.Unplug the HomePod from the wall outlet to disconnect the power.

2.Use a dry, soft, lint-free cloth. Avoid paper towels or rough textiles such as towels to avoid damaging the device.

3.Gently wipe the HomePod surface with the cloth.

4.If you use a damp cloth for stubborn stains, make sure it is carefully wrung out and at best damp. Under no circumstances should liquid get into the device.

5.Do not use sprays, solvents or abrasives. Do not spray any cleaning agent directly onto the unit.

If liquid should accidentally get inside the HomePod, do not switch the device on again. Instead, go to an Apple Retail Store or contact Apple Support as soon as possible.

Avoid dirt and damage to the HomePod

To ensure that you enjoy your Smart Home Control Centre for a long time and that the HomePod retains its look and feel, you should take these tips to heart:

1.Place the HomePod only indoors and use it only there.

2.It is best to place the HomePod on a higher surface, such as a shelf, so that dirty pets cannot contaminate it.

3.Keep the HomePod away from liquids. Do not place it in places where water could splash, such as next to a sink or dishwasher. Do not place glasses or other objects filled with liquids on it.

4.Make sure that the openings are not blocked so that the air can circulate optimally.

5.Pull the plug during thunderstorms or when the HomePod will not be used for a long time.

6.Do not place the HomePod near heat sources such as radiators, ventilation ducts or stoves. Do not place a candle or a burning cigarette in the ashtray.

7.Contact Apple Support in the event of damage. Do not attempt to open or repair the unit yourself.

Little work, a lot of profit

The HomePod can relieve you of a lot of everyday work. Music louder or quieter, another song, reminding you of appointments or answering questions. With so much convenience that you get, the little dusting that's needed to maintain your looks and functionality is quick and easy.
