Underfloor Cleaning

Underfloor cleaning (Subfloor cleaning) involves eradicating any trapped dust and debris that has settled in the floor plenum beneath the raised flooring of data, server and computer room environments.

Under floor cleaning

The purpose of the underfloor plenum, is to provide a passage in which a cool flow of conditioned air can be dispersed upwards into computer rooms through diffuser tiles, blowers or ducts directed into specific equipment.
Due to the fact raised flooring tiles are rarely detached after the (HVAC) air conditioning system has been installed, the air plenum is seldom ever cleaned, which inevitably causes particles of dust and debris to accumulate over time.

The build up of dust and debris contaminates the air inside the floor plenum, this contaminated air is then blown upwards through the ducts and into the computer room and equipment closets.

Once inside the computer facility, the contaminated air poses a severe threat to the overall health of the environment, damaging the circuitry of equipment, clogging cooling fans, increasing the risk of fire, causing random halon discharges, triggering false smoke alarms and undermining the health of workers.

1st Compucare’s underfloor cleaning service tackles the problem at the source, eradicating all dust and debris by means of HEPA filtered vacuum cleaners, which filter the to air .3 microns thus expelling all hazardous contaminants from the environment.

Routine subfloor cleaning guarantees that the ambient air within the computer room is uncontaminated, which prevents dust from clogging the cooling fans ensuring that equipment doesn’t over heat.

Decontamination of the air plenum, also prevents  damaging particulates from being blown directly on to the circuitry of equipment and causing expensive downtime.
