Keeping your data center in good condition should be one of your business’s main priorities. In addition to choosing the right data center layout and keeping your data center cool, you also need to clean your data center regularly. The best way to keep your data center clean is to hire a data center cleaning service.
Why Do You Need to Clean Your Data Center?
First things first, why do you need to clean your data center? Protecting the equipment and the health of your personnel in your data center is essential for running a successful business.
In today’s fast-paced world, any amount of downtime can be detrimental to your business. By cleaning your data center regularly, you can help reduce the instances of downtime. Of course, cleaning services and other electrical equipment isn’t as simple as cleaning a regular office building.
To clean this environment properly, you need to have specialized training, which is where a data cleaning service comes into play.
Alterum Technologies Specializes In:
Not all data centers are the same, and therefore, not all data center cleaning should be the same. Our data center cleaning services can collaborate with your organization to figure out a cleaning schedule that works for your organization.
In addition to cleaning your server room according to industry standards, they’ll also create a plan for handling any special equipment or areas of your data room.
If hidden contamination remains overlooked, it can build up over time and cause downtime in your facility. The hidden contamination may come from fibers, ferrous metals, or fine dust. Contamination in data centers can be easily overlooked, as it often accumulates under raised floors and inside servers.
Downtime from contamination may be a result of short circuits, thermal failure, or interconnected interference. A data center cleaning service will be able to identify spots where contamination might be hidden.
What to Look for in a Data Center Cleaning Service
It’s vital that the data center cleaning service you hire has the proper equipment to get the job done. For example, if they’re going to be vacuuming your facility, they should be using ULPA-filtered cleanroom vacuums.
Not only will does proper equipment ensure effective cleaning, but it also helps ensure that both your staff and your data equipment stay safe. Before you hire a data center cleaning service, you should ask for a full list of the equipment that will be used.
Look for a data center cleaning service that can provide you with a list of professional references. Once you have a list, call up the references and ask for details related to staff friendliness, communication, and overall cleaning quality.
It’s also essential that the data center cleaning service you hire has properly trained employees. Ask the cleaning service how they screen employees before hiring them and whether they conduct background and drug tests.
You should also ask how they train employees prior to their first cleaning.
