Service Intervals

Depending on the environment, computers should be serviced at least once per quarter, though monthly service is optimal.Regular servicing helps computers provide their peak performance.

Basic Computer Cleaning

We offer a basic computer cleaning. This involves physically cleaning the interior and exterior of a computer, including the removal of dust and debris from cooling fans, power supplies, and other hardware components. Dust and other debris may accumulate as a result of air cooling. Any filters used to mitigate this need regular service and changes. If the cooling system is not filtered then regular computer cleaning may prevent short circuits and overheating.

Malicious Software Removal & Cleanup

We offer Malicious software removal. This consists of removal of malware which, also includes viruses, worms, trojan horses, and spyware. Viruses, can cause havoc on a computer’s hard drive by deleting files or directory information. Spyware can gather data from a user’s system without the user knowing it. This can include anything from the web pages a user visits to personal information, such as credit card numbers. Running a cleanup will optimize the overall performance of your PC.

Data Backups

We offer Data backups. Important data stored on computers may be copied and archived securely so that, in the event of failure, the data and systems may be reconstructed. When major maintenance such as patching is performed, a backup is recommended as the first step in case the update fails and reversion is required.

Operating System & Software Updates

We offer updates of software packages and operating systems that may require regular updates to correct software bugs and to address security weaknesses.
