One of the most important factors to keep in mind when reducing contamination in an established cleanroom is the selection and usage of a proper uniform service. Cleanroom work apparel is specifically designed to capture particles and contaminants – including bacteria, hair, skin cells, lint and dandruff – that could be potentially catastrophic to a cleanroom environment. The right apparel will protect the room from these, and more, instead of allowing them to disperse all over the cleanroom.
Because the human body is constantly producing large quantities of possible contaminants, like dead skin cells, hair, and body oils, it’s important to choose your cleanroom apparel and uniform services carefully. Ideally, you should find a service that will change and replace your garments often, as well as one that is familiar with cleanroom practices and needs.
For selection, you want a cleanroom uniform service that includes a variety of high quality sterile and non-sterile garments, as well as plenty of fabric and material options to choose from. Don’t be afraid to ask about bacteria and liquid resistant apparel. And any capable cleanroom uniform service will also be able to explain how their products and apparel reduce the spread of contaminants.
