Power tool maintenance is essential for its smooth running and lasting for a longer period as they are the investment that you want to last for a long time. For this, it is necessary to keep them clean and keep them lubricated to ensure that they remain in good shape.

Power tool cleaning can also be done by using a paintbrush to remove dust from most of the other areas. After cleaning them you can apply lubricant to the moving parts, wiping away any excess so that it does not attract dust.

This similar regime can also be followed in the case of 18V power tool care.
