Client Details: Roha Group (Roha UK Ltd) – Food Factory Manufacturer Website: www.roha.com
Project: High Level Cleaning, Factory Cleaning and Commercial Deep Cleaning
APT was asked, along with several companies, to specify and make proposals to carry out commercial deep cleaning and sanitising of internal surfaces and machinery of a food ingredient manufacturing plant. This work was required in order to meet the health and safety audit after commissioning new plant and equipment.
A recent internal pre-audit identified several key areas in need of attention these included high level commercial cleaning, deep cleaning, stain removal and cleaning of heavily soiled areas left dirty by the recent equipment installations.
APT met with the client to understand their remit for the works, we then carried out a full survey of the food factory production areas and recommended the most cost-effective options to cover all the commercial deep cleaning of equipment, the high level cleaning and deep cleaning of the heavily soiled production machinery within the factory.
After agreeing a health and safety plan and suitable work schedule to minimise disruption to production, APT’s team of industrial high-level cleaners and commercial cleaners used our own commercial cleaning equipment and specialist lift access platforms to carry out the high level cleaning.
Our factory cleaning services offers advice on the correct and appropriate cleaning products to use within a food factory, this is paramount to health and safety. APT advised that the specialised industrial cleaning product APT UltraMax MB would be the most suitable for the food factory as it is a food safe, heavy duty degreaser which will clean, degrease and sanitise all surfaces including the cold room, non-slip safety flooring, wall and ceiling panels, all steel work, extractor and pipe work. The added advantage is that one food safe product covers many areas, thus saving on cost whilst preventing confusion in usage.
APT UltraMax MB degreaser was also used to disperse and remove the staining from wall and floor panels within the factory production areas.
The stainless-steel panels had lime scale staining on them, APT Phos Clean, an industrial food plant descaler was used to remove this.
APT carried out the deep cleaning and high-level cleaning to the factory within the timescale set by the client.
After liaising with the client’s plant managers at the factory, proposals were made for future ongoing maintenance cleaning at the factory in South Wales. We implemented the use of APT UltraMx MB food safe cleaner and sanitiser as a single source cleaner to replace several other cleaning products previously used. The client continues to use APT UltraMax MB degreaser and cleaner for all their factory cleaning.
“Our Audit was great, we achieved a Grade A. We are definitely going to purchase the Ultraclean MB going forward, we just need to start with the verification and change of procedures.”
