Cleaning, an Essential Element
Cleaning is an essential element of contamination control. That is why Harvard has established Standard Operating Procedures for Cleaning & Maintenance of Controlled Environments. Our SOP details cleaning regulations recommended as a minimum for the successful operation of a clean environment in compliance with Federal and ISO Standards, within their specified classifications, from class 1 (M1.5) to 100,000 (M6.5) or ISO 14644-1: Class 3 – Class 9. Our experienced team can help to develop an effective service program, or customize our staff training and work instructions to align with your established protocols and procedures.
To reduce a cleanroom’s risks of contamination, it is essential that an effective preventative cleaning program be implemented and maintained consistently throughout the life of the cleanroom or controlled environment. Harvard’s techniques are proven to remove dirt, dust, and other contaminants from your cleanroom or controlled area, while preventing any contamination in the process.
