5 Ways to Help Look After Your Tech

Looking after our Technology

Given that we spend so much of our work and leisure time these days on PCs, mobile phones and more besides, it stands to reason that we should be looking after our technology – however, it can be easy to let things slip. Here at Tech CPR, we help to remedy and support all manner of technological problems and mishaps – though, there are a few things you can bear in mind, regardless of the device you are using, should you wish to get the most out of your laptop, your PC, your iPhone and more besides.

Keep Things Safe!

This especially goes for portable tech such as smartphones, tablets and laptops – those of which you take out of the house and on the go with you most of the time – as anything could happen to your rather expensive portable pal if you’re not careful. Make sure your phone is fully protected by a shell, and likewise for any larger computers – and keep an eye on your tech at all times, as you’ll need to be on the lookout for pickpockets. Tech CPR are always on hand to help bring tech back to fine health – but prevention is always a less expensive option for most people!

Get Insured

Some people may see insurance as rather like tempting fate – but it’s extremely important. Many insurance carriers offer specific gadget coverage and the opportunity for you to claim on accidental damage or theft for just a small excess fee – it’s well worth looking into, and you never know when you might need it. For all things covered by your warranty and more, Tech CPR can help, too.

Power Down

Overheating is one of the major causes of tech aging faster than it should, and it can also result in some systems burning out altogether if they are being overused. Keep an eye on how warm your devices are getting when at peak usage – and come and talk to our specialists if you’re worried about their performance long term.

Avoid Excess Moisture – and Heat

While some tech is becoming more and more water-resistant, it goes without saying that submerging your phone or laptop in water is hardly recommended. While a little water damage can easily be repaired by the team here at Tech CPR, it makes perfect sense to try and avoid excess moisture and heat altogether where possible.
