Industrial facilities and factories are busy working environments and the factory floor, specialist machinery, equipment and production lines, can become a breeding ground for dirt, grime and contaminants, which can build up if these areas that do not receive regular cleans. Specialist factory cleaning will help ensure that your employees work and operate machinery in a sanitised and safe environment and we can support you to maintain a high level of hygiene throughout, even when we’re not around.

There are several health & safety regulations connected with factory cleaning to ensure that employers prioritise the safety of their staff at work by maintaining clean and clear workspaces and the factory floor is slip, hazard and obstruction free, whilst ensuring working spaces are of a good standard. Failing to comply with legislation can not only put your employee’s health in danger and damage machinery but can also lead to your business failing checks from the H&S inspector, which could lead to serious financial loss.

Our commercial cleaners recommend making the government guidance part of your regular factory, warehouse and commercial floor cleaning routine to comply with current regulations and ensuring your staff are always safe at work.
