has anyone used "electronic contact cleaner" spray on hashboards?  usually compressed air works for loose dust but these have accumulated a oil/grease like dirt that cant be removed by pressured air.  have quite a few machines that will need servicing @least once a month due to air pollution at current location...if there are any alternative less costly and safe methods of cleaning these antminer boards ie. water based solutions(if even possible)or otherwise would appreciate you making a suggestion here

The most commonly used circuit board cleaning fluid is probably isopropyl alcohol.  De-ionized/demineralized water might be the least expensive.  You could also check out Kleanium http://www.chemtools.com.au/product/electrical-electronics/electronics-cleaning-chemicals/pcb-flux-remover/
and see if it's worth the cost.  An ultrasonic tank cleaner can make the process faster and more thorough, but NASA no uses it due to concerns about possible component damage.

You might want to seriously consider how feasible it is to disassemble all your miners every month to clean the circuit boards, then reassemble them.  Seems that would add a lot of overhead and potential for damage.  Is it possible to get cleaner incoming air using some type of filtering?
