Kearney & Associates will coordinate with the facility manager as to what areas need to be cleaned within the facility. We typically only clean up to 8′ off the ground, but will try to accommodate areas above 8′ if requested. Window cleaning is a special cleaning not included in the 3C and bid separately.
We will remove necessary floor tiles for access and HEPA vacuum the entire under-floor cavity. Our associates proceed with the utmost care while working underfloor, gently lifting cables to clean underneath and remove any debris, including loose hardware, Velcro straps, and any foreign material we may find. We immediately report serious issues we discover when cleaning the sub-floor plenum.
HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air and for a vac and filter to be designated as HEPA (as officially defined by the U.S. Dept. of Energy), this type of air filter can theoretically remove at least 99.97% of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, and any airborne particles with a size of 0.3 microns (µm).
We will wipe down all sides of computer cabinets and furniture in the room, including: desks, the tops of monitors, desk phones, the top of fire alarms, file cabinets, CRAC units, UPS units, and anything else that is a concern up to 8’ above the floor. Our dusting cloths are made with dust-catching fibers and offer antimicrobial protection that inhibits the growth of bacteria. They are lint free and designed to capture dust without leaving lint or residue. We do not typically clean keyboards or the racks inside cabinets. If that type of cleaning is requested, we will require an escort to be present.
We will then vacuum the floor tiles 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. Our industrial vacuums have five HEPA filters that are changed regularly to keep your data center clean.
Next, we will clean the top of the tile floor to remove marks, scuffs, tape (if requested), ink and other soil. We call this our damp blue mop method. We keep the water in your data center to a minimum. Chemicals approved for raised flooring are only used for those marks that we cannot get off with our green scrub pads. Ground in dirt will need to be mopped more than once. The floors are usually dry before we leave the room.
Once the job is completed, we will contact the facility manager giving them a verbal report detailing everything that was cleaned in the facility. If we find anything of immediate concern, we will promptly notify the facility manager.
We recommend the Triple Clean at least once a year.
