Most large companies and institutions have adopted computers for certain business processes and mid-size companies are heading in that direction. Computer Rooms have sprung up all around the developed world. Raised access floors and specialized air conditioning are common.

As a data center manager himself, Data Clean’s founder recognizes the need and value of specialized cleaning services for computer rooms. The rest, as they say, is history.
Although it wasn’t always easy to convince others of the need to maintain a clean environment, the world has generally come to understand the impact of contamination on critical systems. Today, with our 100% availability mindset, there is little question of the need to properly maintain computing facilities.
Over the years, Data Clean expanded its reach and capability to clean other types of critical environments such as cleanrooms, laboratories, and video facilities. Our customers have encouraged us to clean non-critical environments as well – because these customers appreciate the value of Data Clean services.
Today, Data Clean maintains myriad critical environments for thousands of customers around the world.
