If your company has a server room, you know the importance of keeping it clean. Dust and dirt might look harmless, but in a server room they can interfere with the functionality of the machines and prevent them from cooling properly, both of which could lead to major problems.
Here’s how to ensure your server room remains clean and efficient.
- Monitor the temperature. For optimum quality and function, servers need to be kept in a cool environment. The ideal temperature for a server room is between 68 °F and 71 °F.
- Clean regularly. Eighty percent of the dirt and dust that enters the server room is tracked in on the soles of shoes. That means that every person that enters the server room is bringing dirt and dust with them. Make sure to clean every surface and equipment regularly.
- Use the right equipment. The best tools for cleaning your server room are: a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter, microfiber cloths, and antistatic cleaning solutions.
Without question, a server room is the heart of the business. It stores data about your business, your employees, your clients, and so much more. While companies take protective measures to safeguard the information from cyber attacks, the same level of care should be taken to keep the room clean.
