WHY IS TECHNICAL CLEANING IMPORTANT?
Dust accumulation can raise equipment temperature up to 30%, which can cause large scale equipment failures from overheating Electrostatic Discharge (ESD), unmanaged rodent issues and condensation lead to:
- Slow Data Processing and Outages
- Equipment Damage, Failure and Loss
- Data Center Fires
Safeguarding the Spark: Well-Kept Data Center Zones
- Ceiling Plenum
- Exposed Ceiling
- Tiles and Grids
- Rack Exteriors
- Server & Rack Interiors
- Data Cables
- Floor Tiles
- Under Floor Cables
- Cable Trays
- MDF/IDF Closets
- Generator yards and more
- Cooling towers

Technical Cleaning Toolkit
Cleaning a data center requires specialized tools and equipment to ensure the safety of sensitive equipment and maintain a clean environment. Here’s a list of tools that are commonly used for cleaning data centers:
Antistatic Cleaning Solutions and Wipes
These solutions are specifically designed to clean electronics without causing electrostatic discharge (ESD) that could damage sensitive equipment. Microfiber wipes are often used to wipe down surfaces.
Compressed Air Dusters
Compressed air can be used to blow away dust and debris from hard-to-reach places, such as between server racks and inside equipment. Make sure the air is clean and moisture-free.
HEPA-Filter Vacuum Cleaners
Vacuums with HEPA filters are essential for removing dust and particles from floors, carpets, and server racks. Make sure the vacuum is suitable for use around electronic equipment.
ESD-Safe Vacuum Cleaners
These are vacuum cleaners designed to prevent electrostatic discharge that could damage sensitive electronics. They have special grounding features to prevent static buildup.
Soft Bristle Brushes
Soft brushes can be used to gently dislodge dust and dirt from equipment and crevices. Make sure the brushes are designed to be antistatic.
These cloths are used to wipe down surfaces after cleaning with solutions or alcohol. They won’t leave lint or fibers behind.
Cable Management Tools
Part of data center cleanliness involves organized cables. Cable management tools such as cable ties, cable organizers, and cable trays can help keep cables tidy and off the floor.
