Why Cleaning the Data Center is Necessary

Data center airflow design makes cleaning the facility necessary because contaminated air flow passes through servers, which act as the first filter in the room. Removing accumulated contamination helps prevent downtime & improve reliability by preventing contamination from entering the air flow that passes through servers. Data Center Cleaning is an industry recommended and best practice.

Data Center Contamination Airflow

Subfloor Contamination

As conditioned air is forced under the raised floor, accumulated settled contamination is swept up into the airflow from the subfloor

Server Contamination

As contaminated airflow is drawn into servers which act as an initial air filter, dust accumulates on internal components which can cause downtime

Surface Contamination

As exhaust airflow exits servers and returns to CRAC units to be reconditioned, contamination settles on surfaces throughout your data center

  • Part of a complete preventive maintenance program

How to Get Started

Step 1: Identify Critical Space

The first step in developing a preventive maintenance cleaning plan is to determine which areas in your data center are considered critical to the operation of your IT operation. This typically includes server rooms, command centers, telecom closets, battery back up rooms, and any areas that house or support data center operations.

Step 2: Determine Specs

Next, determine the specs for each critical area within your data center. Start by recording the total size of each critical area and whether the space has raised flooring. Next, note the type and amount of IT equipment located within each area. This will help determine what services and frequencies are needed in your preventive maintenance plan.

Step 3: Develop a Maintenance Plan

Next, you will want to develop a scope of work that addresses each critical area to include cleaning the subfloor plenum, the surface of the raised floor and equipment, and any overhead areas that contain airflow. The frequency of each service should be based upon several factors like the age of the building and the criticality of the area. ASHRAE and ADCCP recommend that data centers clean their subfloor at least once per year, and above the raised floor on a quarterly basis.

Step 4: Select a Qualified Vendor

Finally, once you’ve developed a scope of work and frequency of services, contact a qualified data center cleaning vendor. A qualified data center cleaning vendor will specialize in cleaning data centers. Data center cleaning vendors will also utilize experienced, trained personnel that utilize special equipment designed to safely and effectively clean your data center. Always check your vendor’s credentials and references. A qualified data center cleaning vendor can also provide consulting to help make sure your covering all aspects of a thorough data center cleaning program.
