We Offer Full Service Cleaning

Our Services

Here’s what services Alterum Technologies data center cleaning teams offer.

Equipment Cleaning

IT equipment cleaning is one of the most important aspects of data center cleaning. We will clean the interior and exterior of your equipment, cabinets, and workstations using specialized cleaning devices.

Raised Floor Cleaning

This involves vacuuming and mopping the floor surface with cleaning chemicals that are approved by your facility. Floor rejuvenation services may also be offered, such as mechanical scrubbing.

Subfloor Cleaning

Subfloor cleaning involves vacuuming the subfloor plenum using specialized critical vacuum filters. Your data center cleaning team will use special vacuums with shielded motors to protect your equipment.

Overhead and Ceiling Cleaning

The data center cleaning team will use a special vacuum to clean above or below the drop ceiling. The service may include vacuuming and wiping down the overhead raceways with a facility-approved anti-septic cleaner.

Site Preparation

The site preparation cleaning can help give your facilities a professional look. If the site visit involves any sort of construction or maintenance, the data center cleaning service can also help with post-construction cleaning.

Electrostatic Disinfectant Spraying

Data cleaning services perform electrostatic disinfectant spraying to clean large, non-critical areas of your data center. The team will apply a one-step disinfectant and allow it to air dry. This process allows you to disinfect large areas faster and disinfect more surface area.

High-Touch Disinfection

High-touch disinfection involves cleaning both critical and non-critical areas using approved disinfectants. Surfaces should be given ample time to air dry, so the disinfectant has enough time to kill any pathogens.

Custodial Services

Some data center cleaning teams also offer custodial services. Daily custodial services may include vacuuming, mopping, and wiping down equipment.

Disaster Recovery Cleaning

Whether there’s a flood, earthquake, or fire, a data center cleaning service can be at the ready when disaster strikes. After asking you specific questions related to the emergency, the data center cleaning service will come to your facility and immediately get to work.

Zinc Whisker Cleaning

Zinc whiskers can cause contamination in your data center when they break off and start to circulate freely throughout the air. It takes extensive effort to remove zinc whiskers from the atmosphere, and a data center cleaning team can help with successful remediation.

Data Center Cleaning Services

Keeping your data center in good condition should be one of your business’s main priorities. In addition to choosing the right data center layout and keeping your data center cool, you also need to clean your data center regularly.

First things first, why do you need to clean your data center? Protecting the equipment and the health of your personnel in your data center is essential for running a successful business.

Trained Employees

You should also ask how they train employees prior to their first cleaning.
