Safeguarding Your Manufacturing Process
Servicon’s Industry-leading Cleanroom Cleaning
Cleanrooms are controlled environments designed to reduce contamination during the manufacturing process. Servicon understands the importance of maintaining a clean and sterile environment, especially in the pharmaceuticals, healthcare, and electronics industries. Cleanrooms play a critical role in manufacturing by ensuring product quality and purity.
Our expertise in cleanroom cleaning includes the tasks and frequencies for the specific cleanroom class, products utilized per client specifications, contamination control, and proper gowning to meet specific industry standards confidently.
Tasks and Frequencies for Specific Cleanroom Classes
The presence of contaminants in cleanrooms can lead to product failure and compromise the integrity of the manufacturing process, occurring through various sources, including people, equipment, and the environment.
Different cleanroom classes have varying requirements for cleaning and maintenance. It is essential to follow the guidelines for each class to ensure that the cleanroom meets the required cleanliness standards. We understand the specific cleaning tasks and frequencies necessary for each cleanroom class, and our fully-trained team provides the appropriate cleaning services based on your needs.
Contamination control is a critical aspect of cleanroom cleaning. Our team is trained to identify and control potential sources of contamination during the cleaning process. We use specialized equipment and cleaning techniques to remove potential contaminants from the cleanroom.
Products Utilized per Client Specifications
Every client has unique specifications for their cleanroom, and we understand the importance of using products that meet them. Servicon works closely with our clients to understand their requirements and utilizes only high-quality, specialized cleaning products to ensure your cleanroom meets the required cleanliness standards.
Proper gowning is essential for maintaining a clean and sterile environment in a cleanroom. Our team follows strict gowning procedures to ensure they do not introduce contaminants into the cleanroom.
The Benefits of Cleanroom Cleaning and Decontamination
Reduced Contamination Risk
Regular cleaning and decontamination protocols help reduce the risk of contamination in cleanrooms. Contaminants can come from various sources, including people, equipment, and the environment. These contaminants can compromise the quality of products manufactured in the facility.
Improved Product Quality
The quality of products manufactured in a cleanroom is directly related to the cleanliness of the environment. Regular cleaning and decontamination protocols help reduce the risk of contamination, resulting in improved product quality at the highest standards.
Regular cleaning and decontamination protocols help increase the efficiency of the manufacturing process and help reduce the risk of contamination and maintain equipment, resulting in increased efficiency. Contaminants can cause equipment failure and downtime, resulting in delays in the manufacturing process.
Compliance with Regulations
Various regulations require cleanrooms to maintain specific standards to reduce the risk of contamination. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in fines and product recalls. Regular cleaning and decontamination protocols help maintain compliance with these regulations and ensure that the facility operates within the required standards.
Ensuring a Contamination-Free Environment
Each procedure can vary depending on the industry and the facility’s specific needs. However, some of Servicon’s standard processes include the following:
- Wiping down surfaces with approved disinfectants
- Vacuuming or mopping floors using approved methods and equipment
- Cleaning and disinfecting equipment and machinery
- Sterilizing tools and equipment before and after use
- Regular maintenance of the facility’s air handling systems
Some of Servicon’s cleanroom cleaning methods are:
Contamination control prevents contaminants from entering the cleanroom and involves a combination of methods, including proper air filtration, gowning procedures, and specialized cleaning products and equipment.
Hydrogen Peroxide Decontamination
Hydrogen peroxide decontamination is another sterilization process used in cleanrooms. It involves using a hydrogen peroxide solution to kill any contaminants on surfaces or equipment within the cleanroom to render contaminants harmless. It effectively destroys a broad range of microorganisms and can be used on all surfaces and equipment within the cleanroom.
Critical Environment Cleaning
Critical environment cleaning is a specialized cleaning process used to maintain the cleanliness of critical environments, such as cleanrooms. It involves using specialized equipment and cleaning products to ensure the environment remains contaminant-free.
ISO 9001:2015 Certification
ISO 9001:2015 certification is a quality management system certification that sets standards for the quality of products and services. Cleanroom cleaning companies that hold this certification have demonstrated that they have the necessary systems in place to ensure that their services meet these quality standards.
Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) Fogging
Hydrogen peroxide fogging is a sterilization process commonly used in cleanrooms to eliminate contaminants. It involves introducing a vaporized hydrogen peroxide mist into the environment, which then disperses to all surfaces, including those that are difficult to reach. The hydrogen peroxide mist effectively kills microorganisms, including viruses, bacteria, and fungi, without leaving any residue or damage to the cleanroom.
Micro-cleaning is a specialized cleaning process used to clean small or difficult-to-reach areas within the cleanroom using specialized tools and equipment, including microfiber cloths and brushes, to clean surfaces and equipment thoroughly.
Critical Environment Sterilization
Critical environment sterilization is the process of eliminating all microorganisms from a critical environment, such as a cleanroom. This process involves using specialized sterilization equipment and techniques, such as hydrogen peroxide fogging and UV sterilization.
Microbial Environmental Testing
Microbial environmental testing is the process of regularly testing for the presence of microorganisms within the cleanroom environment. It involves taking samples from various locations within the cleanroom and analyzing them for the presence of microorganisms.
