What is Preventative Maintenance?
Computer System Preventive Maintenance (CSPM) is a very critical aspect of any successful IT operation and we always stress its importance! No matter what efforts are taken, computers will still malfunction, laptops will ‘crash’, servers will go offline, networks will become unavailable, the PC will take ages to respond, start-up will take ages etc. at times you least expect.
It is only when CSPM is carried out that these problems are turned away and kept to very minimum levels.
Often times even basic maintenance such as backup of critical data, critical software updates and hardware components cleaning can become very time-consuming or difficult for an average computer user. For that reason, Pro-Africa Technologies provides preventive maintenance service programs to address the needs of home users and businesses that do not have qualified staff. In order to keep computer hardware in good working order, specifically its internal components, you have to deal with dust – one of the main source of computer hardware failures. It is imperative to clean and properly lubricate all moving components, such as fans, power supplies, the main board and the CPU. The process is very delicate and we recommend to all our clients, that we perform the cleaning.
