Server Rooms and Data Center Cleaning Services

Pritchard Industries provides comprehensive data center cleaning services for clients in multiple industries. Our team is ISO standard trained to ensure the proper level of cleanliness and air quality in a data center environment. Services include:

Subfloor Cleaning and Anti-Static Finishing

Our technicians are trained in specialized critical vacuums on the concrete plenum (raised floor system); this type of subfloor also requires an epoxy coating to the concrete subfloor plenum surface. Typically, non-raised floor surfaces also have an approved anti-static finish. Pritchard can help with this type of floor cleaning and finishing that goes beyond your traditional commercial cleaning

Equipment Cleaning

Cleaning the racks, cages, wire management, and electronics is vital to maintaining a healthy and safe working environment. Pritchard technicians undergo specialized cleaning training for a wide range of networking equipment and storage units with green cleaning solutions.

Above Ceiling Cleaning

Data centers often utilize in-rack ventilation, which forces air through the floor and ceiling to optimize cooling efficiency. This Enables a large-scale cooling system to provide forced air rather than a dedicated ventilation fan per rack, which drives inefficiency and increased costs. In addition, per-rack ventilation systems can also rack up substantial fees via contracted maintenance programs.

Post Construction Cleaning

Data centers require a lot of construction and custom building modifications and require flawlessly clean air to ensure hardware longevity. Few things would be as catastrophic as losing a full array of striped storage drives or, worse still, a drive controller. Cleanrooms are especially important in this respect.

Disaster Recovery

Pritchard technicians are trained to efficiently clean data centers and similar spaces in a natural disaster . Data storage materials and sensitive electronics can be damaged during the cleanup process, where they may have otherwise been salvageable unless cleaning protocols are executed meticulously. Avert data loss and other issues by being prepared with a back-up plan.

MDF/IDF Closet Cleaning

Main Distribution Frame (MDF) and Intermediate Distribution Frame (IDF) closets are computer rooms that host cabling and vital network hardware. Technicians must be familiar with cleaning and working around sensitive cabling, data center equipment, and hardware. Some chemicals and dust removal techniques can damage these network components.

Critical Cleaning

Regular cleanings reduce the risk of downtime by ensuring that server rooms, command centers, raised flooring, and other areas for contaminant build-up are managed. Generator and battery backup rooms are two common places that maintaining a controlled environment offers substantial benefits.

Custodial Cleaning

Cleaning tables, workstations, and other vital but less sensitive areas are similarly important. Staff must be able to use all parts of the data room safely and ensure that all assets are maintained. Pritchard’s commercial janitorial staff is well-known for its cleaning quality and attention to detail.

Cleanroom Compliance Cleaning

Eliminating or reducing pollutants to specified standards to achieve a clean zone is a serious process and procedure which requires special skills, knowledge, and certifications. The Federal Standard 209E which defines standard classes of air cleanliness for airborne particulate levels in cleanrooms is the most widely adopted standard among all.
