IT Rack Cleaning
Data centre professionals have always been aware that contamination in a computer room is bad news for their IT equipment. Regular data centre cleans by specialist technicians will of course ensure the environments’ contamination levels are lowered; but these cleans do not deal with the internal racks themselves and the equipment within them.
Depending on the type and level of contamination, your servers and switches could suffer from overheating, short circuits and burnt out fans leading to expensive repair bills and application downtime. Dust is a problem not only because it stops effective cooling, but also dust is electrically charged, increasing the chances of hardware failure.
By carefully cleaning around servers and switches we can radically reduce the risk that can cause this equipment to fail.
IT Rack cleaning will:
- Remove contamination from your IT racks, including door meshes, locks, cable management systems, PDUs and servers
- Improve the efficiency of air flow through the racks by removing built up dust residue
- Reduce the risk of static electricity which is passed on through dust particles
- Improve the longevity of IT equipment and increase meantime between failures
Our highly experienced team understand the complexity of working around IT equipment. We only clean based on a pre-agreed program of works allowing you time to shut down any sensitive application servers.
Using environmentally friendly cleaning products, anti-static cleaning agents, swabs, air puffers and special HEPA filter vacuum cleaners, we can clean in, around and between your IT equipment whilst it is still resident inside your rack.
And if it’s a deeper clean that you require for highly contaminated sensitive equipment, we even have specialists that can take the servers apart and clean at component level.
