Spring cleaning is something that we often neglect to apply to our computer equipment. These days, when we talk about the need to keep our computers clean, we often refer to scanning our operating systems for spyware, browser extensions, hijackers, and unnecessary processes that load at startup or else continuously run from memory.
The Importance of Cleaning Away Dust
Computer fans tend to be the most affected by dust particles that accumulate and reduce the system’s overall cooling efficiency. Dusty computers tend to run hotter and force fans to spin faster, thereby reducing their useful life. Frequently dusting computers on the outside is something that all computer owners can do, and this will certainly go a long way in maintaining the longevity of systems; however, an internal dusting is something that should be done once at least once a year.
Don’t Delay When It Comes to Cleaning
You would be surprised how much dust and dirt can accumulate in the case of computers and laptops alone. A full cleaning includes the internal components such as heat sinks, graphics and sound cards, fan blades, rails, etc. We use compressed air, special solvents and small precision tools to accomplish this. When systems are properly dusted, cleaned and tuned-up, clients can immediately notice an improvement in performance.
