Keeping your busy workplace clean can sometimes feel like an uphill battle; however, it should always be your number one priority, particularly in industrial environments.
A lack of proper maintenance in an industrial area could lead to health hazards, a loss of production, or product contamination, which can harm your business and your employees.
Luckily, there are companies out there that can help you stay on top of your game with thorough and professional industrial cleaning services.
This article explains what industrial cleaning is, how it works, and what benefits it offers to businesses.
What is industrial cleaning?
In short, industrial cleaning is a highly specialised type of cleaning that involves using professional equipment and cleaning products to achieve a deep, thorough clean. It often encompasses heavier cleaning tasks, typically in complex environments requiring specialist equipment and strong chemicals to meet industry standards.
Which businesses need industrial cleaning services?
- Warehouses and distribution centres
- Factories including food
- Industrial plants
- Production and packing facilities
- Laboratories and hospitals
What do industrial cleaners do?
Depending on the size of the facility and the industry it sits in, industrial cleaners will service the following areas:
- Mechanical equipment and machinery
- Washrooms and kitchens
- Large-scale warehouse and factory floors
- Shelving and racking
- Food storage spaces such as silos, cold storage rooms, and freezers
- Communal areas such as the staff room or the canteen
- High-level areas such as ducting, windows, lighting, and vents
Industrial cleaning will usually require specialist equipment such as scrubber driers and floor sweepers, and industrial strength chemicals will be needed to undertake the project successfully.
The benefits of the Industrial Cleaning
Improvement of worker safety – An unclean work environment equals an unsafe one. Scheduling regular deep cleans means reducing hazards, and your employees can work safely.
Increased employee productivity – An unkempt, dirty work environment prevents your employees from working productivity. Regularly cleaning your facility means that your employees don’t have to prioritise cleaning before they can start working.
Equipment longevity – Hiring a professional cleaning company to regularly clean and service your building prevents dirt and debris from building up and damaging equipment.
Depending on your needs, an industrial cleaner can deliver both ‘one-off’ deep cleans or regular, contract-based cleaning solutions.
