4 Easy Steps to Spring Cleaning

According to my allergies (which are never wrong about these kinds of things), Spring is fast approaching! For most of us, Spring is known as a time of renewal and new beginnings, and that goes for your IT equipment as well! Now is a great time to take advantage of our “Spring Cleaning” IT Services!

STEP 1: Preventative Maintenance Services

Let our 4QuartersIT Preventative Maintenance Service breathe new life into your servers, computers and network devices! Did you know that things like dust, carpet fibers, pet hair (for you “bring your dog to work” folks) and even insects (that’s actually where the term “computer bug” came from!) can enter your equipment through the fans and other air-intake areas and, over time, can build up enough to cause the device to overheat and fail? As part of our Preventative Maintenance Service, we will remove harmful dust and other airborne particulate that collects inside of your devices, improving system efficiency and extending the life of your technology investment!

STEP 2: Server and Network Equipment Organization

Simplify management of your IT equipment by letting us clean up, label and organize your server closet! Properly labeled and well-organized networks are much easier to service. When you have a problem with your server or networking equipment, the last thing you want to do is waste precious time trying to figure out which cable plugs into which device. Our IT Equipment clean-up service will properly label all equipment and color-code the all cables, plugs, etc… so you can know exactly what you are looking at.

STEP 3: Computer and Network Equipment Recycling

Make room in your office by recycling those old computers, servers and network equipment that you no longer need. We make it SAFE and EASY to get rid of old broken or obsolete computers. Our computer recycling service will take your old computer equipment and, if requested, have the hard disk drive(s) crushed to ensure that any data on the disk can never be recovered. We will provide a Certificate of Destruction so you can rest easy.

STEP 4: Data Archiving and Management Services

Move that old and obsolete data from your server to an external hard drive or to the cloud! If you are like most people, you’ve been meaning to do some file and folder organization on your PC or server, but you just don’t know where to start. One simple method we often recommend is to archive old and obsolete data to an external hard drive or to the cloud. This can easily be accomplished by moving  old, unnecessary files and folders into a special “Archive Files” folder. Once you’ve moved all the items you no longer need, you can move the “Archive Files” to an external hard drive or, for Office 365 Subscribers, move the files to the 1 Terabyte of Microsoft OneDrive storage that is included in your Office 365 subscription. As always, we are ready to assist you in any way we can! Give us a call and we’ll be happy to help!

As you can see, some Spring Cleaning for your server and network equipment has many benefits. We would love to help you get the most out of your technology investment. Call 4QuartersIT today for an estimate on your IT Spring Cleaning service!
