BACS overhead fixture cleaning services for data centre are available nationwide including Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Canberra, Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart and Darwin as well as most regional areas.

In modern data centres, power and data enters the server equipment via overhead infrastructure such as cable trays, power  trays and fibre optic conduits. Dust settles on all these fixtures. To achieve and maintain ISO 14644 standards, this contamination must be removed. Overhead fixture cleaning needs to be done post-construction and again periodically after that, usually every two years.


  • BACS provides a site-specific Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) and Risk Assessment before beginning work.
  • BACS cleaners implement risk controls such as displaying appropriate barricades and warning signs where overhead work is taking place.
  • Over-head fixture cleaning includes pipework, light fittings, fibre conduits, VESDA conduits, air conditioning ducts, bracketry and tops of cages.
  • Where necessary, server racks are covered for protection from fallout.
  • No moisture of any form is used; BACS techniques employ specially treated disposable cloths which trap and remove loose dust.
  • BACS uses non-conductive fibreglass platform ladders for added worker safety.
  • BACS cleaners are covered by a current $20 million public liability insurance policy.


  • Overhead fixture cleaning can be incorporated into planned periodic maintenance.
  • BACS cleaners arrive fully equipped with all the specialised high-reach equipment including fibreglass ladders with non-marking rubber feet.
  • BACS is fully covered by workers compensation for cleaning elevated and difficult-to-access areas.
