When was the last time you checked the back of your Xbox Series X? Last month? Never? Well, it might be worth taking a look to see what’s going on behind the scenes.

Like Reddit (opens in a new tab) u/Tea-Mental user shared in r/XboxSeriesX, you might want to check the back of your Xbox from time to time. Their photo showed a very dusty Xbox Series X, with many of the console’s air vents blocked as a result. This can, of course, cause the console to overheat and therefore negatively impact performance. In the worst case scenario, a buildup of dust could cause your Xbox Series X to malfunction. And nobody wants that.

The dust-laden image led to a wider discussion about the best console cleaning techniques on Reddit. Some responses suggest investing in an air purifier to combat dust buildup, making sure to change filters every month. Others have advised regularly dusting your larger home, especially if you have pets. Some product recommendations (opens in a new tab) have also been suggested but whatever you do, please do not use a vacuum cleaner to clean your console.
