Client Reviews

After the cleaning our server’s run cooler, and more efficient. Could not be happier with the results. Amazing.

Choosing Pro Active to clean our company’s data center was the right decision we could have made. Their staff were efficient and used the latest products and tools to ensure that our systems were running smoothly after service. Five stars all around.

Everything went smoothly! At some point, I contacted Pro Active Computer Cleaning by phone. The assistance was immediate, polite and efficient. I’m very satisfied! Highly Recommended.

The crew here is great, the job they do with our Datacentre and Network closets is amazing. It’s very satisfying to have the trust they clean this equipment and not cause a downtime to our network or servers.

Pro Active Computer Cleaning Inc. carries a $5,000,000. General Liability Policy and our service staff is Insured and Bonded. You will rest easy knowing that you are in excellent hands.

Before your Data Centre is cleaned, we will operate our “Airborne Dust Particle Counter“ to accurately measure the number of 0.5-micron particle contaminants per cubic meter of air. While cleaning your Data Centre environment, we will operate our “Hepa Air Scrubber” unit continuously, to filter out the high air particle contaminants. This helps bring your Data Centre environment to an ISO 14644-1 Class 8 Standard or lower. Our technicians are also equipped with “Anti-Static Microfiber Cloths” and customized “HEPA Filter Vacuums” with a filtration rating of 99.97% efficient down to 0.3 microns. This ensures that our precision cleaning will reduce even the smallest of particles that aren’t visible to the human eye but harmful to your equipment. Once the cleaning of your Data Centre is completed, we will operate our “Airborne Dust Particle Counter” to accurately measure the Room Temperature, Humidity and the “reduced” number of 0.5-micron particle contaminants per cubic meter of air. A detailed report will be forwarded on our findings.

“Satisfaction Guaranteed!”

Our staff is on call 24/7 for any emergencies or inquiries and we also provide a
100% satisfaction guarantee on all professional precision cleaning services provided.

“Remember… Good Service Is Not Expensive… It’s Priceless!”

Sub Floor Precision Cleaning

Raised access flooring in Data Centers are designed to allow space below to lay cables, sensors, detectors, conduit, pipes, cable trays as well as allowing proper airflow from cooling units. Over time, dust, drywall dust, dirt, wire clipping, metal shavings and debris accumulate in the Sub Floor Plenum. Equipment failure is largely correlated to improper cleaning methods or poor maintenance.  If the “Airborne Dust Particle Count” is higher than recommended it will accumulate, contaminate your Surface Floor Equipment and reduce the effectiveness of the cooling system. Dust contamination has been shown to cause 70% of Equipment Breakdowns within IT environments. To reduce this risk of contamination, we recommend a Data Centre “Sub Floor” precision cleaning program biannually with our customized “HEPA Filter Vacuums” and “Anti-Static Microfiber Cloths” to achieve an ISO 14644-1 Class 8 Standard.

Equipment Precision Cleaning

Your equipment is the most important and valuable assets in a Data Centre.  This equipment includes and is not limited to Network Cabinets, Server Racks, PDUs, UPSs, CRAC Units and Wall Mounted Power Hardware. These highly sensitive units are very susceptible to the accumulation of airborne dust particles which have been shown to have prolonged negative effects on equipment operation. Most of these particles are smaller than 10 microns and are not visible to the naked eye. Equipment failure is largely correlated to improper cleaning methods or poor maintenance.  If the “Airborne Dust Particle Count” is higher than recommended it will accumulate, contaminate your Equipment and reduce the effectiveness of the cooling system. Dust contamination has been shown to cause 70% of equipment breakdowns within IT environments. To reduce this risk of contamination, we recommend a Data Centre “Equipment” precision cleaning program every quarter with our customized “HEPA Filter Vacuums” and “Anti-Static Microfiber Cloths” to achieve an ISO 14644-1 Class 8 Standard.

Post Construction Precision Cleaning

The transition from a completed building site into a completed Data Centre requires comprehensive post construction precision cleaning by experienced professionals. We will eliminate dust, drywall dust, dirt, wire clipping, metal shavings, food and debris that accumulates’ over the course of the Data Centre construction project.  This precision cleaning process is essential for preparing the Data Centre Environment for IT equipment installation. Failing to do so will result in the Data Centre not being turned over to the existing or new client in a turn-key ISO 14644-1 Class 8  Standard condition and will affect the performance of the IT equipment for years to come.

Features and Benefits

ISO 14644-1 Standard

The standard for measuring a Data Centres cleanliness is by the number of “microscopic particles found per cubic meter of air“. These microscopic particles range in size from 5um* to 1um, 0.5um, 0.3um, 0.2um, 0.1um. Any particle under 5um cannot be seen by the naked eye but can still cause damage to the equipment infrastructure. The ISO 14644-1 standard has classes set up from 1 through 9, with class 1 being the most stringent. A Class 8 Standard allows 3,520,000 of 0.5 particles per cubic meter of air. Class 1 is a very high standard and is only obtainable by very high controlled environments such as drug manufacturers. Although the industry ISO standard is at a class 8, our goal at Pro Active Computer Cleaning Inc. is to reach a class 6 – ISO 14644-1 standard. Many manufacturers such as EMC, Cisco and Sun now state that there are acceptable levels of contamination and “their equipment must be kept in a Data Centre which has been decontaminated to a sufficient level on the ISO 14644-1 Clean Room and Controlled environment scale”. This means that if your Data Centre is not kept at a class 8 level or better, their OEM warranty may not cover damage to the equipment caused by dust.

*( um is 1 micro meter which is equivalent to one millionth of a meter. For reference one piece of human hair is between 10 to 200um.)
