Dust and containment built up in the ceiling tiles can dislodge by the circulation of the air through your facility. New ceiling tiles are made of fiber glass in order to prevent fire from spreading from the ceiling to the room. Fiber glass particles are dislodged by the air conditioning and are very unpleasant when inhaled by IT staff who undergo work in the data center. The contracted work that takes place over the years by running electrical wires and pipes above the suspended ceiling leave unwanted materials behind. All these materials and dust are a hazard for the data center and its workers and a periodical cleaning is required in order for the operations to continue at an optimal level. AMCS uses state of the art equipment to remove fiberglass and unwanted materials from above the ceiling.
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.
Computer room flooring is designed to dissipate static electricity by providing a conductive path to earth ground. Dirt on top of and ground into computer flooring greatly reduces the floor's ability to dissipate static. Improper cleaning can cause your floor to delaminate or chip. AMCS uses specialized environmentally friendly cleaning agents, that safely remove dust and dirt from all types of tile.
The true lifeline of any controlled environment is the under floor plenum . This plenum delivers cool air to your sensitive equipment. Unfortunately, because of gravity, the plenum is also the area most prone to dirt and dust. If allowed to accumulate, these contaminants will be swept up and carried to your equipment by the circulating air. The impact of contaminated airflow includes clogged circuitry, clogged fans, faulty tapes, increased risk of fire, accidental fire suppressant discharge, and can lead to employee health problems.
AMCS's under floor cleaning service helps protect your equipment from these and other hazards. AMCS will work with you to develop a customized preventive maintenance program that will help keep your operation up and running smoothly.
Once installation of new equipment has been completed a thorough decontamination of your facility should be considered. A post installation decontamination program can include hardware, supply air plenum surfaces, raised floor surface, walls, fixtures and any other affected areas. The service can be designed to address conditions above or below the raised floor or both if necessary. When conditions in the facility have been returned to appropriate levels, a program of regularly scheduled environmental maintenance should be scheduled.
AMCS will provide everything needed to fully execute the requirements to furnish, and deliver the final detailed post construction cleaning of your Computer Room or Data Center. We clean what contractors leave behind. Whether it is a newly constructed Computer Room, Data center, UPS room, Mission Critical Facility or a specialized critical project we provide trained experienced professionals, who are dedicated and committed to exceeding your service requirements each and every time they are called upon to perform.
Workstation and PC Contamination
Most companies are dependent on the secure and efficient operation of their IT systems. It therefore makes sense to look after these valuable assets by keeping them clean and in good working order.
A smart office with clean equipment, free of ink marks, adhesive residue, dirt, dust and debris also has a positive effect on staff morale and creates a positive impression with clients and visitors. It signifies corporate pride and conveys an image of professionalism.
A sticky keyboard and mouse slow down keystrokes and reduce operator speed. Dust and dirt sucked in by computer fans builds up and gradually reduces the effectiveness of the cooling system, which can ultimately lead to overheating and total failure.
There are also potentially serious health implications associated with using dirty equipment. Analysis of a keyboard normally reveals remnants of food and drink, hair, nails and lots of dead skin! Recent research conducted by the University of Arizona has shown that telephones harbor up to 25,127 microbes per square inch, keyboards 3,295 microbes and computer mice 1,676. Considering a toilet seat contains only 49 microbes per square inch you can now begin to see the real cost of not maintaining the cleanliness of your office equipment. For more information on this please read this article on the BBC website.
We recommend computer cleaning is performed outside of office hours but we realize that this does not suit everyone, so we will happily visit at any hour of the day or night. We also offer a silent cleaning service, which is ideal in call centre environments where you do not want loud vacuums whirring away in the background while your staff are trying to talk to customers/clients.
If price is your only concern then you could speak to your office cleaning company, who will happily provide a very poor service for a 'good' price. If on the other hand you want the best computer cleaning service available, fully backed up by references from a broad base of existing clients then AMCS is the company for you.

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.
