Spring AV Cleanup: Your Comprehensive 4-Step Guide to Cleaning Up AV

Spring can be the perfect time to find that extra motivation to declutter and organize almost anything in your life. Like most people, putting mundane and exceedingly boring tasks off during the colder months can be easy. But not anymore.

The weather is warmer, and the birds are chirping. It is time for a new, fresh start. This spring, we will start being productive in assessing our technology, especially audiovisual technology. At CSAV Systems, we have created the ultimate spring cleanup guide to evaluate your equipment. 

4 Steps to Your Spring AV Cleanup

Backup Any Data

Before unplugging and restarting, it is essential to back up any important information. This will help ensure that you will always have access to it. 

 Declutter Devices

You need to declutter your devices—literally and figuratively! If you’re still holding onto video surveillance footage from prehistoric times, it may be a sign to delete it. If you have wires from your monitors, consider consulting with an A/V expert to carefully hide them or place them where they won’t get stepped on.

Decluttering technology is something that more people should practice so that their technology can perform at the highest level. 

 Review Your Subscriptions 

Taking the time to reevaluate any technology services, plans, or subscriptions you have subscribed to is nonnegotiable. Technology service agreements can often be an excellent investment, but only if you take advantage of them.

We recommend taking the time to thoroughly analyze which service plan will be the best fit for your facility before pulling the trigger. 

 Clean Digital Devices 

When was the last time you dusted off your speakers? Exactly. Use the proper cleaning supplies and equipment to physically clean your gadgets. Don’t forget to disconnect and turn off electronics before cleaning. Dust and debris buildup can significantly impact the quality of audiovisual solutions after some time. To be on the safe side, we recommend deep cleaning your devices a few times a year.
