Contamination – Dust, Dirt, Sand, Pollen, Human Particulate within a Data Center builds up over time. Particulate and other types of contamination build-up in equipment, in servers, on heat sync’s or fan bearings and will eventually cause failures within IT equipment and the associated plant equipment if left unchecked. This build up causes thermal clogging that will increase heat. This heat will result in servers slowing down, it will result in fans not operating efficiently and slowing down and possibly a complete failure. With the requirements for zero downtime and numerous redundancies built into modern Data Center’s things like loss of data or latency and performance issues are scrutinized in more detail. Keeping contamination in check through regular cleaning can help to mitigate these risks.

CFS takes a holistic approach to its Data Center cleaning services. We can also provide disaster recovery cleaning services, with turnaround times between 4 – 24 hours, for post gas suppression release, refrigeration unit leaks, water leaks, flooding, fire, smoke or any other emergency.

Most OEM and hardware manufacturers including Sun Micro, EMC and HP recommend that the sub-floor void be cleaned twice per annum by a professional Data Center company, especially if air flow is being directed through the floor void. If Data Center cleaning has never been undertaken in your facility, an initial site preparation service (Initial Deep Clean) may need to be performed. This full Data Center deep clean may include every square inch of the Data Hall; sub-floor void; floor and equipment surfaces; pedestal and stringer substructure. This is to ensure that your facility is as dust and contamination free as possible. The Data Center environment should meet the minimum Cleanroom Class DIN EN ISO 14644-1 (Cleanroom Class US Fed.-STD. 209E) standards, in line with hardware manufacturers’ warranties.
