Our laptop fan cleaning services are vital for ongoing computer health. If your machine is older than two years, and has never had its fans cleaned, it’s likely to need them doing.
Your laptop fan is responsible for cooling the vital components packed tightly inside the case. It blows the hot air, generated by the working elements of the computer, out through the air vents. But air isn’t the only thing passing through those vents.
Over time, tiny particles of dust and dirt, sucked into the machine by the action of the fan, clog up the blades. The cooling fan becomes ineffectual, which means it has to work harder to keep the air inside the laptop at a reasonable operating temperature.
Eventually, the fan is running all the time without bringing the temperature down. And that’s when things start to go wrong. The fan itself may lock, clogged with too much dirt. Or crucial hardware inside your machine could overheat and fail.
That’s why we recommend that you have your laptop fan cleaned once every year or two. A simple operation, performed by professionals, can prolong the life of your machine and help manage power consumption.
Signs your laptop is in need of a cleaning service:
Is your laptop making a lot of noise when it runs? Is it noticeably hot after a short time?
If your machine is so noisy you can’t hear the programme you’re watching, or too warm to put on your knees, you could be hearing and feeling the warning signs that your fan is clogged with dust and dirt.
Just a few hours and your laptop will be running smoothly!
