  • Patent number: 12036583
    Abstract: A cleaner comes into contact with a lower-surface center region of a substrate held by a first holder, so that the lower-surface center region is cleaned. The cleaner comes into contact with a lower-surface outer region of the substrate rotated by a second holder, so that the lower-surface outer region of the substrate is cleaned. During cleaning of the lower-surface center region, the second holder is rotated about a vertical axis while not holding the substrate. Alternatively, during cleaning of the lower-surface center region, the gas injector arranged between the cleaner and the second holder injects gas toward the substrate from a first height spaced apart from the substrate by a predetermined distance. Further, during drying of the lower-surface center region, the gas injector injects gas toward the substrate from a second height closer to the substrate than the first height.
