Protecting IT Equipment

One of the biggest sources of particulate (dust) contamination of IT equipment is dust created during refurbishment work. The dust created is very abrasive and therefore very damaging to moving parts of the server i.e. fans etc. Construction dust is produced in vast quantities and is very small (0.3μm (0.0003 of a mm) micron and up). This dust will quickly block airways causing overheating. Contractors often fail to effectively protect your mission critical equipment. This is due to the contractors lack of appreciation of how small these sub-micron particles are, and how they behave.

Internal Server Equipment Cleaning

IT Cleaning Ltd are often asked to carry out internal server equipment cleaning, internal comms equipment cleaning, internal data equipment cleaning, tape libraries, switches etc. This is most often needed when a server equipment, comms equipment, data equipment,switch or library has been subjected to large amounts of dust, often from construction activities like drilling, whilst the equipment is running. It has been proven that dust build up inside the equipment causes an increase in heat which requires the internal fans to work harder using more power. Research suggest a 2% increase in power use.
