Cleanrooms are complex environments, and in addition to highly accurate filters, they employ temperature and humidity controls to eliminate airborne particles. Engineers need to wear specialized clothing while working in Cleanrooms, and data recovery companies need to regularly test their equipment to maintain their certifications.

Why Data Recovery Companies Need Cleanroom Technology?

To understand why physical data recovery procedures require a Clean Room, it is helpful to consider the sensitivity and precision of a hard drive's read/write heads. On a typical hard drive, the read/write head assembly operates several nanometres away from the platters that store your data. This distance is smaller than the size of most bacteria and several hundred times smaller than the width of a thin human hair.

Did You Know?

When a hard drive is opened, engineers need to prevent various airborne contaminants from causing problems with the recovery process. Any foreign object larger than a few microns that comes between the heads and platters will complicate the recovery process, but an appropriately maintained Cleanroom can prevent damage from occurring.

Secure Data Recovery Services is the only data recovery company in the United States with ISO 4 certification, which demonstrates that the environment allows fewer than 2.9 particles sized 5 µm or larger per cubic meter.

Common Cleanroom classifications for data recovery include:

  • Class 1000 / ISO 6 - This type of Cleanroom allows 1,000 particles per cubic foot. Most data recovery companies will not use Class 1000 standards, which are far too lenient for hard drive repairs.
  • Class 100 / ISO 5 - The most common Cleanroom standards, Class 100 allows for 100 particles per cubic foot.
  • Class 10 ISO 4 - Class 10 standards allow for a maximum of 10 particles per cubic foot. Given the density and sensitivity of modern hard drives, we believe that Class 10 standards are absolutely necessary for safe data recovery.

Regular testing is essential to ensure that Class 10 Clean Rooms operate at a sufficient level for safe physical data recovery procedures. Testing is typically handled by a third-party company to ensure accurate, unbiased reporting. View our reports and certifications below for more information.

Why Class Is Important for Cleanrooms?

Cleanroom classes are established by Federal Standard 209E. As mentioned earlier, class is usually measured by the number of particles larger than 0.5 µm in a square foot of space. The Class 100 standard is the one used by most data recovery companies, as it effectively guarantees to prevent harmful contamination for hard drives and other delicate electronic media.

  • Data recovery companies use two basic standards to compare Cleanrooms: US FED STD 209E and ISO 14644-1. Both standards measure the number of particles larger than 0.5 µm in a cubic foot of space.
  • ISO 14644-1 standards also detail maximum and minimum limits for Cleanrooms, and we use both standards for the benefit of our clients.
  • For contrast, ISO 5 (the most common ISO credential in the data recovery industry) allows for 29 particles per cubic meter. By committing to strict ISO and FED-STD-209E standards, we prevent potential media damage and provide efficient, safe data services.

By investing in a certified Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom and other advanced tools, we have established our reputation as an industry leader. We offer fast turnaround times, affordable pricing and reliable success rates through more than 50 facilities across the United States and Canada, and our engineers can safely recovery any type of media failure without unnecessary risks.

Quick and Painless

When my work drive suddenly died I was panicked. I had lost access to all of my clients'' current design files (while I was in the middle of several deadlines). Needless to say I was in a pinch. I''ve used big box stores for stuff like this before and they''re always super expensive, and it takes forever. So after some research I contacted Secure Data Recovery instead. My account rep Timothy guide... Read More

Great Experience

A drive crashed on an extremely important computer, and the data had to be recovered. After doing some research I decided to use Secure Data Recovery Services. The process was quick, extremely professional, and the drive was completely recovered except for one file. I’m incredibly pleased with the quality of work, and dealing with Alec was a pleasure. Highly recommended!

Saved a teacher 100s of hours!

100% Satisfied!! Alec was amazing to work with! He was very helpful, answered all questions that I had and work with me to get the best service at the best price. Since I read many of the reviews before I decided to use Secure Data Recovery Services, I will tell my story, too. I am a teacher. I dropped my external hard drive with all of my teacher files -- 5 years of files! I was devastated!... Read More

Excellent Service by Rob 10-9-15

I recently had a diagnostic evaluation of my semi retired PC's internal Hard Drive at Secure Data Recovery at their 'Clean Room' facility in Ohio, after my PC had a electrical burn. When I got the quote to recover the data, I realized that for the little amount of non backed up new data that had been put onto the Hard Drive it did not warrant the cost involved, so my Account Representative Rob And...

A save for our critical information

Our back-up hard drive failed and they have been excellent in their service with getting access to that information back.

The service is well priced, even for needing to use a 'clean room' to accomplish. The timeline was well within my expectations for getting the job done and I would use the again.

Anyone who relies on their data, both for business and personal, will find th... Read More

Great Service!

After exhausting every last option I could come up with on my own, I couldn't get my drive to respond. Mitchell Moore came to the rescue and I was able to recover all of my files including programming codes through their clean room services. The expertise Mitchell offered was top notch and I would certainly go back to him again if ever needed.
