Server and Hardware Cleaning
The highly sensitive electronics of your servers and computers attracts dust via the air conditioning equipment. This dust collection is amplified during times of data center construction projects or any other contracted activity within the data center environment. The dust is also collected on the surface of the workstations and countertops. AMCS uses special vacuums and specially formulated cleaning agents to remove this dust from equipment. We not only remove the contaminants you can see but more importantly the hidden ones you can't see.
Even after a short amount of time the dust and dirt build up in servers is surprising. The reason for such fast accumulation is primarily due to the air conditioning systems fitted in most server rooms and data centers. Obviously an adequate room cooling system is vital, but the particles that get deep inside your sensitive IT equipment and the grime that builds up on components as a direct consequence of this makes servers' internal cooling systems less efficient, ultimately leading to system crashes and even, in some cases, total failure.
AMCS can help you avoid this situation. Our trained engineers can decommission and un-rack your servers to allow easy access for our cleaning technicians who will thoroughly clean units inside and out. They will also clean the racks before re-commissioning the equipment.
If you are relocating hardware to a new data centre, for example, then this is an ideal time to clean it, as this process can be incorporated into the move schedule. This also allows you to realize maximum hardware efficiency with the least amount of down time.
An external clean can be carried out should you not want your servers removed from their racks. This is still very effective at increasing airflow as all fan housings, vents and filters are vacuumed and all surfaces treated with an anti-static cleaning solution. For further information please see our data centre cleaning page.
