Preventative Maintenance

Importance of Preventive Maintenance

Preventive maintenance is one of the most ignored aspects of PC ownership. Most people seem to think that the PC doesn't need preventive maintenance, so you should just use it until it breaks, and then repair or replace it. These people generally find themselves repairing or replacing much sooner than those that take definite steps to avoid difficulties in the first place.

Here are some reasons why you should have 2 Wiseguys PC Repair do preventive maintenance for your PC:


  • Preventive Maintenance Saves Money: I'm sure we've all heard the adage that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It's trite, but it is also true. Avoiding problems with your PC will save you money in the long run, compared with laying out cash for new components or repair jobs.

  • Preventive Maintenance Saves Time: Saves time? How can taking two hours a month to perform maintenance save time? Simple: it saves you the much bigger hassles of dealing with system failures and data loss. Most preventive maintenance procedures are quite simple compared to troubleshooting and repair procedures--now those can eat up your time at a fantastic rate.

  • Preventive Maintenance Helps Safeguard Your Data: For most people, the data on the hard disk is more important than the hardware that houses it. Taking steps to protect this data, therefore, makes sense, and that is what preventive maintenance is all about.

  • Preventive Maintenance Improves Performance: Some parts of your system will degrade in performance over time, and preventive maintenance will help to improve the speed of your system in these respects.


The average PC user doesn't think much about problems that can occur with a computer until the problem occurs. Once a failure happens, the repairs can be costly and time-consuming. There are, however, preventive measures that can decrease the likelihood of running into problems with the computer's smooth and efficient operation and also lessen any damage that does occur despite best efforts to avoid failures.


Computer failures occur for a variety of reasons, sometimes because of human error and sometimes because of factors in the environment that cause a computer to malfunction or a combination of human and environmental factors.


These factors can include excessive buildups of dust, heat, or magnetism; viruses picked up from the Internet or storage media shared between different computers; static electricity shocks or power surges; carelessness, such as spilling liquids into a computer or bumping or dropping the hard drive casing; software that has not been configured correctly or a PC setup that has been handled incorrectly; or incorrect handling of upgrades. Call us today for more information.
