Data Center Cleaning Services
Pritchard Industries provides comprehensive data center cleaning services for clients in multiple industries. Our services include:
Floor Surface Cleaning
Technicians are responsible for ensuring that floors are free of dirt and debris. Datacenter floors are often engineered to ensure that static electricity and other stray current are routed directly to the ground. This ensures the longevity of servers, switches, IDE, and other equipment in the data center.
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.
Sub-floor and Above Ceiling Cleaning
Data centers often utilize in-rack ventilation, which forces air through the floor and ceiling to optimize cooling efficiency, enabling large-scale chiller units to provide forced air cooling rather than a dedicated ventilation fan per rack, driving inefficiency and increased costs. Per-rack ventilation systems can also rack up substantial fees via contracted maintenance programs.
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. Clean rooms are especially important in this respect.
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.
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 and hardware. Some chemicals and cleaning techniques can damage these network components.
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 for that maintaining a controlled environment offers substantial benefits.
Cleaning tables, workstations, and other vital but less sensitive areas are similarly important. Staff must be able to use all parts of the data center safely and ensure that all assets are maintained. Pritchard’s commercial janitorial staff is well-known for its cleaning quality and attention to detail.
