What are the best practices for Data Center Cleaning?
Best practices for data center cleaning involve meticulous attention to detail and a systematic approach to ensure the cleanliness and reliability of critical equipment. Excellence in every step of the process is necessary to ensure critical environments remain safe and operational.
Staff Training and Education
Every one of our Data Center Cleaning Technicians receives thorough education and training specific to servicing a critical data center environment. We consider this training essential to achieving our high standards – and yours.
While your facility is being serviced we take utmost caution so your day-to-day data center operations can continue as usual. We accomplish this without damaging the finishes on surfaces, such as the anti-static properties found on floor tiles. By following our specific cleaning procedures, we are able to remove debris, both large and small, found under the sub-floor plenum and elsewhere; all while drastically lowering particle counts in the data center.
We utilize the best HEPA/ULPA vacuums and filtration in the industry. Anything else allows particulate to become airborne thus increasing the risk of damage to your equipment.
The chemicals we utilize are at a safe pH rating for data centers and are considered non-corrosive. These compounds can actually enhance the anti-static properties of the equipment found within any specified data center environment. As part of our standard data center clean, we implement a mild and non-abrasive anti-static wipe-down of exterior surfaces. This process will help to prevent particulates from accumulating and safely remove other contaminates that can build up over time.
