I currently service my Brother in laws two pc towers in the office of his workshop and the insides get very dusty and i have to use a compressor to clean them out. Is there anything on the market that would help extract to dust as it comes in , ie case fans . The office door is shut but after about 8 months they need blowing out again. Any ideas.

I don't think there is any way on Earth to accomplish that!

Even in a nice clean home environment it would not be possible to eliminate all dust inside PC - dust as mo doubt you are well aware, is attracted by the heat from the PC.

Maybe possible in the Arctic Circle!

A lot depends on the location and surroundings. One of the worst places is on the floor, under desks etc.

In the days of main-frame computers they used to be kept in special dust-free, air conditioned rooms but nowadays pc towers are kept in busy and dusty offices. So keeping them clean is going to be difficult.

You could fit filters to the case fan and grills but you wou;ld need to watch for any heat build up.
