Hull computer refurbishing

Over time, your PC or laptops internal components will eventually become very dusty. This is normal, considering there are potentially numerous fans constantly sucking and blowing air in and out of your PC or laptops case to prevent overheating. But this added build up of dust creates less than desired effects - fans that should be cooling components are working less efficiently.

Overheating components

Failing to keep ontop of this dust can lead to components overheating - such as processors, graphics cards/chips or hard drives, which ultimately leads to system failure. Regularly vacuuming and cleaning the inside of your PC or laptop will reduce the chances of this occuring. This can save you alot of money in the long run.

Aswell as ensuring cooling is at its optimum, you also want to pay attention to other areas, such as your keyboard and mouse (if applicable). When used daily (and in premises such as offices where you may eat or drink at the computer) the keyboard and mouse are generally the dirtiest devices. A study found that the average keyboard contains more bacteria than found on a toilet seat - this is a great incentive on why you should clean regularly.

Examples of past refurbishments

Here are the before & after images of a recent PC refurbished - which required quite an intensive restoration. The owner knew next to nothing about computers, but used it nearly every day over a period which spanned around two years.

This is why it's important to keep ontop of the dust collection regularly...
