A TV is a necessity that is certainly not cheap. You need a decent budget if you want to buy a new TV, which is why it is important to take good care of the TV.  Here are some ways to extend the life of your TV:

  1. Keep the TV safe from children- It hardly takes any imagination to understand exactly what children are capable of doing to a TV. They often pat and kiss their favorite TV characters, smack the bad guys and in the process of expressing themselves, put the TV through so much distress! They even test the screen's strength by hitting it with their toys. The simplest solution- get a hidden TV lift cabinet and hide the TV in it. Pull it out only for a limited time. It will also help you address children's screen time issues and check overuse.
  2. Keep the TV safe from grease- Many of us enjoy the open floor layout. It is extremely convenient and makes it easier to keep an eye on the rest of the family and be part of conversations even if you are in the kitchen. You can watch TV while cooking too.  One downside, however, is that it becomes hard to keep the TV safe from the grease generated in the kitchen. No matter how hard we try, some grease will find its way onto the screen anyway. While other surfaces like counters and furniture are cleaned regularly, the TV isn't. So the deposit only keeps getting thicker. A hidden TV lift cabinet comes in very handy here. It reduces the time that the TV is exposed to the grease and keeps it hidden in the TV lift cabinet. The TV lift cabinet adds style to your home, and saves you from unnecessary cleaning, keeping your TV in a good condition for a longer period of time.
  3. Keep the TV off the walls- We often use TVs for hours together. TVs produce heat that needs to be dispelled. If your TV is wall-mounted, the heat gets trapped in the small space between the rear of the TV and the wall. Over time the TV will get overheated and its circuits will start malfunctioning. So, it is recommended that you place the TV on a console or even better, in a hidden TV lift cabinet which will keep it completely off the walls, provide enough room to get rid of the heat and increase the life of the TV. 
  4. Keep the electric supply stable- Many TVs come with an inbuilt power stabilizer, but in case your TV does not have one, do invest in it. This device helps regulate the voltage going into the TV and regulates any excess voltage, thus saving the TV from possible burnouts. Another concern is the mess of wires around a TV. It is essential to keep the cords organized to reduce the chances of people tripping over the cords, and accidentally pulling out the power cord. Hidden TV lift cabinets come with wire organizers to keep both the TV and people safe.

All said and done, a hidden TV lift cabinet is a good option when it comes to extending the life of your TV. A broken TV can cause a lot of headaches, and so, we’d suggest that you never underestimate the usefulness of the TV and do your best to keep it safe.
