Extending equipment life

Extending equipment life : help prevent serious hardware issues

Posted on: November 1st 2022    •    Posted in: Data Room Cleaning, Office Cleaning

IT equipment is perhaps the most precious commodity any business has.

Serious hardware issues can cost the business thousands of pounds in downtime and in some cases lead to complete closure.

Keeping server rooms clinically clean has always been recognised as a top priority, but the maintenance of general office IT is often neglected – allowing accumulation of damaging dust and dirt.

The build-up of dust impacts the performance of  computers in two main ways: it causes the components of the computer to retain heat and makes it more difficult for the internal fans to dissipate heat from the system. Dust can also make desktop PCs run slower and is the main reason why keyboards and mice stop working.

As the price of desktop IT has come down over  the years,  these items have become almost disposable items. If a computer becomes less efficient or a newer model is released, the old one is all too often just thrown away.

Statistics show that worldwide, over 40 million tons of IT equipment is discarded each year, with an estimated  800 laptops being junked every second! Sadly only 12% of this is recycled, with e-waste accounting for 70% of global toxic waste.
