Single Clean

Kearney & Associates offer the single clean, or 1C, to ensure your facility is always in top-notch condition with this planned maintenance program.

Our team leader will meet with the facilities manager, when available, on the day of the cleaning to inspect the room, ascertain what items need to be addressed, and determine a plan of action. If no one is available, we will then proceed to clean the areas we see that need to be cleaned.

Typically, we will spot clean the facility and take care of any problem areas. If notified, we can also come in on short notice to assist with any emergency spills on or under the floor; in most cases we can usually respond within a couple of hours.

We recommend the Single Clean as frequently as is needed to maintain the facility.

Double Clean

Kearney & Associates will coordinate with the facility manager as to areas to be cleaned or not within the facility. We typically only clean up to 8 feet off the ground, but will try to accommodate areas above 8 feet if requested.

We will wipe down all sides of computer cabinets and furniture, clean perforated tiles as needed, and anywhere else that is a concern up to 8 feet above the floor.

We will then vacuum the floor top using our HEPA vacuums that are specifically designed for the work we do and contain filters to ensure that we can capture the smallest particulates and not release them back into the room. Next, we will clean the top of the tile floor to remove marks and soil.

Once the job is completed, we will contact our liaison giving them a report noting what was done to the facility and if we have any suggestions. If we find anything of concern as we progress during our cleaning, we will immediately notify our liaison of our concern.

We recommend the Double Clean once or twice a year.

Triple Clean

Kearney & Associates will coordinate with the facility manager as to areas to be cleaned or not within the facility. We typically only clean up to 8 feet off the ground but will try to accommodate areas above 8 feet if requested.

We will remove necessary floor tiles for access and HEPA vacuum the entire under-floor cavity.
Our associates always assess the sensitive cables and then gently move them to get underneath and remove any debris, including loose hardware, Velcro straps, and any foreign material as we progress. We report any issues that we find as we progress through this process.

Custom Program

Kearney & Associates is available for construction cleaning of secured areas during or after the construction process. Many of our clients’ remodel or expand their current facilities. It is important to maintain the current equipment and operations during the construction process for it to function at its optimal level.

Encapsulation

Probably the greatest value per dollar for environmental control in a data center is encapsulation. The fine dust that continuously spalls off the concrete under-floor is a genuine threat to the electronics that populate data centers. Encapsulation consists of a diluted penetrating first coat of paint, followed by a full strength finishing coat that permanently seals and locks down the fine concrete dust. Given that we use a light-colored paint for this work, there is at least one reflective surface under the floor for those who are engaged in tracing cables.

Encapsulation starts with a thorough under-floor cleaning. While this is being done the cable and pipe routing under the floor is being assessed. From this assessment a tile-picking plan is developed that will provide safe pathways for associate traffic and paint supply distribution. Then the cables are carefully lifted and braced so the sub-floor surface is cleaned and clear for the first coat of paint.

This lifting and bracing of cables is an art form and only done by experienced associates using tools and techniques specific for this purpose. The first coat is then comprehensively applied and allowed to dry. The second full strength coat is then applied and allowed to dry. When the sub-floor is dry, the cables are carefully lowered, and the floor tiles replaced. Lastly, the raised tile surface is thoroughly cleaned, and the room is ready to go.

This is typically a one-time application.

Waxing

We also offer floor wax services for your tile floor surfaces. We can clean or grind off the old surface and apply a new wax surface using regular wax or anti-static wax for those grounded floor situations.

We have the resources to offer Tate flooring tiles in the St.Louis Area.
