1. Preventive Maintenance

Pc-Direct is dedicated to the proactive approach of preventive maintenance. Regularly scheduled cleaning and testing can spot small problems before they escalate. THIS PROACTIVE PROGRAM PAYS FOR ITSELF THE FIRST TIME A BREAKDOWN IS AVOIDED. Preventative maintenance is much more than dust and dirt removal. Diagnostics testing can alert a technician to a potential hazard before it becomes a real system problem. Systems are thoroughly cleaned and inspected, on a periodic basis, to spot small problems that could ultimately turn into catastrophes if left unchecked. Equipment that is well maintained experiences fewer failures; fewer failures equal less downtime: less downtime equals less stress, more productivity and more profitability. Furthermore, service is performed on-site, so as not to interrupt busy work schedules. A regularly scheduled preventive maintenance inspection is our approach to providing quality support and service with a minimum of downtime.
