PC Cleaning & Maintenance

Why do I want to clean my PC? Overtime dust builds up inside your pc and on the internal components causing your computer to overheat. Cleaning your computer and your computer components and peripherals helps keep the components and computer in good working condition and helps keep the computers from spreading germs.

Depending on the environment that your computer operates, it determines how often you should clean your computer case. The below list is our recommendation and may change depending upon your computer’s environment.

We offer the following cleaning services:

Computer case cleaning. Keeps the appearance of the computer looking  new. During cleaning, if ventilation locations are blocked, these can be cleaned helping the case to maintain a steady airflow to the computer, keeping components cool and in good working condition.

CD/DVD ROM or Other disc drive cleaning. A dirty CD-ROM drive or other disc drive can cause read errors with CD discs. These read errors could cause software installation issues or issues while running the program.

Hard Drive Cleaning. While hard drives cannot be cleaned physically, they can be cleaned with various utilities on the computer to help it run fast and more efficiently. Utilizing these utilities will prevent the hard drive from slowing down.

Keyboard Cleaning. The computer keyboard is often the most germ infected items in your home or office, often it will contain more bacteria than your toilet seat. Cleaning it can help remove any dangerous bacteria. Dirt, dust and hair can also build up causing the keyboard to not function properly.

If the keyboard has anything spilt into it (e.g. pop, cola, Pepsi, Coke, beer, wine, coffee, milk, etc.), not taking the proper steps can cause the keyboard to be destroyed. You should turn off the PC or Laptop immediately, and turn keyboard or laptop upside down to prevent further damage.

LCD Cleaning. Dirt, dust, and finger prints can cause the computer screen to be difficult to read.

Motherboard Cleaning. Dust and especially particles of cigarette smoke can build up and corrode circuitry causing various problems such as computer lockups

Mouse Cleaning. A dirty optical-mechanical mouse (mouse with a ball) can cause the mouse to be difficult to move as well as cause strange mouse movement.

Printer Cleaning. Cleaning the outside of a printer can help keep the printer’s appearance looking good; and in the case of a printer that is used by many different people, keep the printer clean of germs.

Scanner Cleaning. Flatbed scanners commonly become dirty with dust, fingerprints, and hair. When a scanner is dirty, the images may have distortions.

XBox, PS3 Cleaning. Dust particles can clog air vents causing consoles to overheat  resulting in Red Ring Of Death in XBox and Yellow Light of Death in Playsation models – which can be prevented by keeping console dust free
