Dust and food spills are the main factors in decreasing the life of a Mouse and Keyboard.
So keep them cleaned all the times. And eating or drinking near the computer is a big problem. Crumbs have a tendency to fall between the keys on your keyboard and get stuck there, causing a key to stick down, or worse, not work at all. If soda spills inside your keyboard, it can actually eat away at the electrical connections inside that make the keyboard type. If that happens, the keyboard is finished. Depending on the style of mouse that you have, they can start to malfunction too because of the dust and dirt.
If it is a mouse with at ball inside, the optics inside can collect the dirt that the ball has picked up and it will not track correctly. If it is a laser, LED, or optical mouse, they can suffer to because of dust, dirt or lint in the optics. Keeping your desk clean and free from debris will go a long way to keeping your computer running smooth and worry-free!
