Data Center Site Cleaning
Data Center Site Cleaning is a vital part of any data center maintenance program to ensure peak performance within the mission critical environment. By eliminating dust and dirt buildup, system reliability and uptime is increased. In addition, cleaning extends the life of servers and other electronic devices. PTS Data Center Solutions provides a comprehensive data center site cleaning service geared to begin once data center construction is complete and continue through the life of the facility. PTS’ certified and trained technicians thoroughly clean above and below the raised floor paying particular attention to problem areas where dust and dirt accumulates.
Our experienced cleaning crews are well aware of the caution that must be employed in an active data center environment during regular cleanings. When coupled with the PTS Data Center Managed Maintenance (DCMM) Service and Data Center Maintenance Management System (DCMMS) solution , our Data Center Site Cleaning service provides a needed maintenance element. PTS technicians provide three data center cleaning services: Exterior Hardware Cleaning, Tops of Floor Cleaning, and Under-floor / Ceiling Plenum Cleaning. These services are usually performed at scheduled intervals, ranging from once per day to once per week to once per month. These services are also provided to prepare a new data center for IT and facility equipment deployment after construction is completed.
Description of services:
- Encapsulation of sub floor to eliminate concrete powdering
- Systematic vacuuming to remove dirt, dust and contaminants

||Prior to the first cleaning, management personnel perform a walkthrough to gather specific cleaning requirements. Requirements range from which floor tiles will be removed for cleaning to which electrical outlets are designated as available for use by cleaning personnel. Detailed notes and procedures are then developed for use by cleaning staff.
||All technicians have completed a comprehensive training program in data center cleaning, IT clean room, and IT cleaning services. For example, technicians are trained to never spray cleaning chemicals directly onto equipment and to use disposable wiping cloths treated with anti-static property chemical.
|Data Center Specific Cleaning Equipment
||Data center cleaning supplies are chosen based upon specific criteria. All tools, equipment, supplies, and chemicals are designed and recommended for data center cleaning and data center environments. Equipment will ensure the data center will be cleaned to the International Standard ISO 14644 for class 100,000 clean spaces.
|Customized Cleaning Schedules
||Data centers become dirty at varied rates depending upon traffic patterns, personnel types, loading / unloading of equipment, etc. PTS provides a variety of schedules customized to meet the requirements of clientele.
|Customized Maintenance Plans
||Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are customized for each client including feedback from walkthroughs, specific requests made by clients, and other customer specific maintenance requirements.
||Safety cones, tape, and wet floor signs are used where appropriate to protect client data center personnel and cleaning staff. Lose items are secured and never left on floors.
|Regular Cleaning Management
||Data center cleaning personnel are managed by professional data center management and operations personnel who have significant experience in data center preventive maintenance. Regular scheduled and unscheduled walkthroughs are performed to maintain quality of service. In addition, management and operations personnel make recommendations on possible improvements available to keep the data center clean, such as Dycem CleanZone Mats.
