Why do I need my computer room to be clinically clean?

Recent studies have shown that around 75% of storage and hardware failure are caused by environmental factors.

The main concerns are:

  • Room temperature
  • Humidity
  • Carbon dust
  • Concrete dust
  • Mould
  • Bacteria

Clinical clean is carried out by our dedicated and security vetted Clean Team, in line with the latest COSHH guidelines, to create and maintain a dust free environment.

Benefits of computer room cleaning

Recent studies have shown that around 75% of storage and hardware failure are caused by environmental factors.
The main concerns are:

  • Increased reliability
  • Greater productivity
  • Reduced static electricity


What constitutes computer room cleaning?

It involves the removal of dust particles, static and other contaminants from the room environment, treating all areas with anti-static solutions.

How can dust affect modern equipment?

In most modern disk storage systems, the hard disk head hovers at just 12-13 millionths of an inch above the disk surface. Most contaminants blown in by air conditioning, often from the sub-floor, are three times that size and clearly invisible to the naked eye. If the disk head becomes contaminated, it could cause a read/write error or even cause the head to crash.

How can I justify the extra cost?

What is the cost to your business of one hour’s downtime? £10k? £50k? More? The cost of this preventative maintenance is minimum when set against the risk of system failure.

Can my own cleaners decontaminate?

All too often office cleaning duties are extended to the data centre. At best this will give the impression of a clean room but more often than not it serves simply to redistribute the potentially harmful contaminants.

Will it affect the running of my computer room?

Our services have been designed to work around the day to day operations of your data centre, meaning your business can run as usual. We will also ensure that the temperature and airflow remain constant.
