Data Centre and Server Room Cleaning Procedure

We make the data centre cleaning procedure as simple as possible for our data centre and server room clients. The cleaning process doesn’t start until all the requirements are understood, documented, and all prerequisite & conditions are met.

Our technical cleaning procedure is a document written to support a “policy directive”. The procedure document is designed to describe who, what, where, when, and why by means of establishing corporate accountability in support of the implementation of a cleaning project. It also identifies the sequence of steps, and specifies for each step what needs to be done, when, and by whom.

Our standard operating procedure is a standardised document that describes the details of a procedure for the execution of routine cleaning activities in the data centres and in the server rooms. It includes relevant cleaning quality criteria and references to business rules, standards, or regulations, so to ensure efficient execution and homogeneous outcome.

Work Instruction

A work instruction describes in detail how an individual cleaning technician shall perform a given task of a procedure. It also provides further detail on specific tasks within a procedure.

Quality Assurance

Means that we understand your requirements and put the necessary checks and procedures in place to make sure these are adhered to.

Quality Control

Allows us to record and establish that the agreed cleaning standards are being achieved and constantly maintained, such as minimum frequencies for contract performance inspections.

Customer Satisfaction

Customer satisfaction is of our ultimate quality check. We are therefore committed to a program of continuous improvement, which provides a clean, safe environment for all.
