Even a perfectly designed data center will require continued maintenance. An effective cleaning schedule must consist of specially designed short−term and long−term actions.
These can be summarized as follows:
|Daily Actions||Rubbish removed|
|Weekly Actions||Access floor maintenance (vacuum and damp mop)|
|Quarterly Actions||Hardware decontamination and room surface decontamination|
|Bi−Annual Actions||Subfloor void decontamination and air conditioner decontamination (as necessary)|
