Many people don't realise it, but computers are just like cars: you either maintain them regularly, or they can break down at the most inopportune times. Some people spend hundreds of dollars on tune-up software when their computer appears to be running slow only to discover it has made no difference.
These days if the computers Central Processing Unit (CPU) starts to overheat it is designed to lower it's working speed to reduce the build up of heat to prevent it from sustaining damage. The number one cause of this is dust, PC's hate dust (see "Dust - The computer killer" in right column). Dust acts like an insulating blanket inside your computer letting heat build up. It blocks airflow and causes your computer to work harder than necessary and eventually to overheat which can result in slower working speed, crashes and lock-ups or even die.
Let us get your computer breathing again: Serenity Computer Services recommends a 6 month complete cleaning cycle. We have two cleaning packages to choose from (see below). For more information or to book a cleaning Call: 0407 129 446.

Your computer is like a magnet constantly attracting dust, dirt, and animal hair, even in a clean environment. Some computers even come with dust filters that need regular cleaning to ensure good air flow (there's a good chance that you where never told if your computer has one). Good air flow is essential in maintaining the proper operating temperatures inside a computer. The CPU, Graphic card, Motherboard and most of the add-in cards are designed to be cooled by good air flow. That air flow is reduced by clogged fans and air vents, and electronic components can't be cooled properly if they are coated in dust and dirt. If this is allowed to build up there's a good chance you'll eventually be buying a new power supply, motherboard, or a completely new system.
Below are a few examples of dust clogged and extremely dirty systems.
