When considering cleaning services, the type of thing that might come to mind would be a contracted worker that arrives at a scheduled time to conduct a regular clean. This is the usual way contract cleaners operate, but in industrial environments, there are various different methods of cleaning that may be needed, and varying degrees of difficulty in accomplishing some cleaning jobs.
What is Industrial Cleaning?
Industrial cleaning generally refers to the cleaning of busy production environments that might produce a lot of waste, use oil and grease, or use large machinery; such as factories. Factory workplaces can be dangerous places during day to day production, and this can be greatly exacerbated if spills or rubbish aren’t cleaned up, or machinery is left to build up dirt and become clogged. Because of these dangers and potential risks, factory environments must usually adhere to strict health and safety regulations, from both the organisation itself, and UK law. An experienced industrial workforce, such as APT Commercial Cleaning, will be well aware of the standard of cleanliness expected from your area of business, and adequate cleaning methods will mean that you can adhere to the health and safety regulations and avoid dangerous situations such as, trips or falls, sub-standard products due to dirty machinery, or permanent damage of any equipment.
In these types of factory environments, it is imperative for any equipment and machinery to undergo thorough professional cleaning. Industrial machinery can be extremely difficult to clean for anyone who isn’t experienced in this area; the equipment could be extremely large, contain sharp, dangerous, or intricate elements, or produce hard to remove or dangerous substances, like oil or grease. A professional industrial cleaning specialist, like APT Commercial Cleaning, will be aware of the diverse range of factory machinery, and will be able to deduce the correct methods and most effective products to use in order to thoroughly clean the machinery.
What Areas does Industrial Cleaning Cover?
In industrial environments the floor is a natural repository for all the dirt, dust, grime, and grease produced, and is subsequently tracked by footfall through to other parts of the premises. This is without mentioning any spills or overflow materials that pose a risk of permanently staining or damaging the flooring if they are not properly cleaned up. Professional industrial cleaning services will be able to advise on the best course of action for floor cleaning; knowing the correct products to use to remove the regular build up of dirt, as well as tougher substances such as oil, grease, or glue. This should be a high priority as the incorrect products could cause even further damage to the flooring, such as stripping the paint from it, and lead to further expenses and complications.
Any commercial or industrial workplace requires unique cleaning methods, and these cleaning methods also extend to rubbish and waste disposal. Business and organisations have a responsibility to remove and dispose of any waste or rubbish in a safe and environmentally friendly manner, in line with government legislation. This is particularly important when dealing with industrial waste that is hazardous. It can be surprising how much waste from certain industry sectors can be hazardous; toxic waste, chemical waste, sharps/needles, asbestos, and other contaminated waste must be handled extremely carefully by licensed waste disposal services.
