I have several RHEL Linux servers, but sometimes when the servers hangup, in the restart, a few services don't start because uncleaned lock files.

Where is the best place to put a cleanup to be executed in the startup in order to remove that files?

You can read about Run Levels here.

You should be able to delete these files before the services try running by adding a symlink to a cleanup script (essentially an rm command) in rc1.d.
