|How does dirt affect IT outages?||Dirt can include metal fillings, concrete and many other substances that have remained present since construction was completed. As a result, IT equipment filters and PCB’s can deteriorate and result in damage from contamination such as metal whiskers that cause short circuits or even greater problems over time and this bring the MTBF down.
