Computer maintenance is a great way to take care of your computer. It allows an expert computer technician to run certain tests, checks, and optimization techniques, ensuring your computer is protected against viruses, spyware, pop-ups, and crashes.
There is a myth that computer maintenance has to be weekly. However, periodic tech maintenance can be as frequent as you’d like. For example, for a home computer or small computer setup, it is wise to have computer maintenance either quarterly or twice a year. This will allow testing for malicious items as well as failing hard drives, RAM, Internet speed status, dust build-up, network/printer/equipment issues.
We have found that preventative maintenance can save tons of money in the long-term, as well as extend the life of your mac or PC.
Here’s a good periodic maintenance schedule based on the number of computers your company or small office has:
- 1 – 5 computers – bi-annual maintenance
- 6 – 10 computers – quarterly maintenance
- 11 – 15 – monthly maintenance
- 16 – 20 – bi-weekly maintenance
- 21+ computers – weekly maintenance
Having the proper periodic plan for your business can save time and money, in turn, increasing overall production. Please feel free to contact a local service provider for your computer maintenance options.
