The environment in a cleanroom requires very close attention and diligence. It is a fragile and easy to diminish the integrity of the cleanliness once the room is established.

  1. Thoroughly clean your modular cleanroom regularly. You may have staff in-house who are trained to clean a cleanroom. This process isn’t like hiring a cleaning lady for your office. Because the environment is specialized for the field, either pharmacopoeial, for building technology, research and development, each is going to have its own cleaning regulations for the room. All of the surfaces have to be cleaned regularly with certain supplies approved according to the USP chapter and the ISO air quality for the cleanroom.

  2. Change out the HEPA filters often and correctly. In order to know this is done correctly each and every time, contact a company, like Travis Clean Air to come in and check and replace your filters so they will pass inspection and keep the particulate matter under the requirement.

  3. Contact the cleanroom manufacturer before altering the cleanroom or moving it. Take advantage of the expertise the manufacturer has for the construction and versatility of their cleanroom. They can move the room or make changes to it and help you stay USP 797 compliant with your modular cleanroom.

  4. Follow the guidelines set by the FDA for your USP 797 compliant modular cleanroom for operating on a daily basis. Keeping your room running under compliance guidelines will help keep your cleanroom clean, so there aren’t any big surprises or big changes when inspections come up.

  5. Stay well stocked and don’t skimp on supplies. Part of cleanrooms are they need to be kept clean. Running out of supplies, like the garb required for your room or cleanroom stationery, cleaning supplies that are specially made for cleanrooms can create a buildup of particulate that can compromise the cleanliness.

Once built, if the cleanroom requirements are followed, there isn’t much more you can do to improve your cleanroom. The best thing to do is to take steps keep the room up to the industry’s standards required by the federal government on a regular basis.
