If it seems like you are always having technology problems, it might seem out of reach to find a solution that will help you get the IT maintenance you need. This is super common and you are not alone. Today, we’re going to be discussing some basic tech tips that  anyone can do that will help your small business have better IT maintenance in Phoenix.

Keep Things Clean and Tidy

Workstations and servers are complex and have so many working parts that need to be organized. When things are kept clean, they are able to function better. This includes any dust that has gathered on your equipment. Every so often, it is a great practice to clean off your equipment by wiping or using canned air to blow dust out of the keyboard and other parts of your system. 

Apply Patches and Security Updates

While updating your system may not be first on your list, they are actually more important than you realize. When there is a security issue, patches and updates are put out to stop them. So, if you don’t update your computer for a while, you may be letting threats right in. Always be on the lookout for patches and updates in your solutions that need to be utilized. These will also make your programs work better and faster as well.

Perform a Routine Network Assessment

It’s a good idea to occasionally look at your entire network to make sure everything is in good health. This can be done on a micro and macro level to see different issues that might arise. This assessment can also give you info about your efficiency and security.
