Industrial cleaning is the process of cleaning areas in industrial facilities such as warehouses, distribution centres and factories.
In this post we will cover what is involved in the industrial cleaning process, what equipment is used and the methods undertaken to achieve the highest-quality clean.
Types of industrial locations
- Manufacturing plants
- Refrigeration and cold storage buildings
- Distribution centres
- Power plants
- Food processing factories
- Loading bays
What types of tasks are undertaken during an industrial deep clean?
Our Industrial Cleaning can cover various tasks within many manufacturing/production sites across the UK. These tasks include:
- Heavy plant cleaning
- Dust and debris removal
- Large scale floor cleaning
- Structural Cleaning (Internal/External)
- Machinery Cleaning
- Vent cleaning
What methods are used during an industrial deep clean?
There are a variety of methods used during the industrial deep cleaning process, which are typically determined by the type surface and location that needs cleaning. These include:
HEPA Filter Dust Removal
A HEPA filter is a specific type of high-quality air filter that meets the HEPA filter standard, which is to remove at least 99.97% of particles from the air down to at least 0.3 microns in size such as dust, pollutants, pollen and smoke particles.
Battery Operated Scrubber Dryers
Scrubber-Dryers are a combination of a floor sweeper, a floor scrubber and a vacuum. This handy piece of equipment features rotating brushes that work to remove dirt, but it also uses water and cleaning fluids for a deeper clean. After applying the water and cleaning fluids, the brushes rotate and put pressure on the surface to help dislodge and remove grime as it moves around. Finally, the liquid is removed from the surface, leaving it dry.
Steam cleaning technology uses hot steam at high pressures to clean hard to remove grime and sanitise areas.
Steam cleaning technology is often used in the healthcare and food industries, where sanitising and deep cleaning are of paramount importance.
Dry Ice Technology
Dry ice cleaning / blasting is a technology that propels carbon dioxide particles (dry ice) in a pressurised stream at high speed, which is then directed at a surface in order to clean it.
Dry ice blasting is often used to clean areas that need to maintain a low temperature, such as refrigeration warehouses. Dry ice replaces the use of water and cleaning chemicals that would otherwise freeze or become ineffective in these conditions, meaning the operation can keep running during the cleaning process.
