Businesses tend to focus less on preventative maintenance of their I.T. infrastructure, but in businesses where we perform this maintenance, the I.T. renewal spend reduces substantially over time.

Regular maintenance and cleaning of your IT infrastructure, such as computers, servers, data cabinets, and peripherals, can help you lower your operational costs and boost your efficiency. This is a simple way to optimise your business performance if you rely on IT equipment.


Why is this important?

Dust, dirt, and debris can accumulate on your IT equipment over time, causing overheating, performance issues, malfunctions, and even fire hazards. Not to mention the health risks for your employees and customers who use the devices.

There are a number of tasks our clients schedule for us to perform that reduce the risk of hardware failure and improve the longevity of their I.T. infrastructure.  We list some of these below:


PC & server cleaning

By removing dust and dirt from your PC and server components, such as fans, heatsinks, power supplies, and motherboards, you can prevent overheating, extend the lifespan of your hardware, improve airflow and cooling efficiency, and reduce noise and energy consumption. This can save you money on repairs, replacements, and electricity bills.

Data cabinet cleaning & re-cabling

By organising and labelling your data cables, removing excess or unused cables, and cleaning the dust and dirt from your data cabinets, you can improve the cooling, security, and accessibility of your network. This can prevent accidents, errors, downtime, and data loss. It can also make it easier for you to troubleshoot, upgrade, or expand your network in the future.

Peripheral cleaning & sanitising

By wiping down and disinfecting your keyboards, mice, monitors, printers, scanners, and other peripherals, you can remove germs, bacteria, viruses, stains, and odors. This can improve the hygiene, health, and comfort of your employees and customers who use the devices. It can also enhance the appearance and professionalism of your workplace.

 

Data clean up

By deleting or archiving old or unnecessary files, folders, emails, applications, and backups from your computers and servers, you can free up disk space, speed up performance, reduce clutter, and improve security. This can save you money on storage costs and data recovery services. It can also help you comply with data protection regulations and avoid legal issues.

Maintaining and cleaning your IT infrastructure can have many benefits for your business. It can help you save money in the long run by reducing the risk of damage, malfunction, or data loss.
