Regular IT Equipment Cleaning Benefits
Having your IT and office equipment regularly cleaned and maintained brings many advantages and benefits to your business. Some are tangible, others aren’t, but they all work towards improving overall performance.
IT and office equipment is one of the biggest investments a company makes. It makes financial sense to ensure that it is looked after to protect your investment.
Health & safety compliance
With the health and safety risks that have been associated with dirty IT and office equipment, one of the main benefits of using our services is that they enable our clients to meet their health and safety obligations. We are able to offer an unrivalled service that is unique to the needs and requirements of every individual client, giving the maximum benefit in terms of equipment compliancy.
Longer equipment life-span
Another important benefit that you will receive from having this service, is that your equipment will last longer. By getting rid of the build up of dust and dirt that is largely responsible for overheating, data corruption, malfunction and vast amounts of down time, we can help our customers to operate much more efficiently and protect their investment in Information Technology equipment. Remember, prevention is cheaper than cure.
Having clean, hygienic IT and office equipment leads to a significant reduction in cross-contamination from shared office spaces. It also leads to staff having fewer problems such as headaches, nausea and eyestrain which are often attributed to dirty computer screens. The result of these benefits means that there is a good chance the costs to your company of absenteeism and sickness can be greatly reduced.
Clean IT and office equipment also leads to the intangible benefit of increasing staff satisfaction. This is an extremely important factor in the success of any business and is often overlooked in favour of more tangible improvements. However, rest assured, a happy workforce is a productive workforce!
Reliability & productivity
Having clean equipment in good working order can help to increase the productivity of your workforce. For example, a sticky keyboard or a mouse that doesn’t roll properly can cost somebody 5 minutes a day in corrections. Over the course of a working week that is 25 minutes, and over the course of the working year it equates to a total of 20 hours lost time! This is a considerable amount more than the cost of having the equipment cleaned regularly and kept in working order.
It looks better!
Regular cleaning and maintenance leaves I.T. and office equipment looking newer for much longer and also helps to create a much better impression whenever visitors are around. If you can see that your equipment is dirty and poorly maintained, then so too can your customers and visitors.
Free up resources
Although some argue that their IT department looks after the maintenance of office computer equipment, the reality is that they simply do not have the time for cleaning the equipment along with the many different issues that they need to deal with. Using our services helps to reduce the workload, and frees up time for IT professionals to concentrate on the important technical issues.
Some companies also insist that staff members waste part of their expensive working time keeping their workstation and equipment clean. This too is false economy as it takes staff away from the core business activities, and it is unlikely that they will possess the knowledge or the materials to carry out the job to the required standard. IT and office equipment is one of the biggest investments a company makes. It makes financial sense to ensure that it is looked after to protect your investment.
