Industrial environments, such as factories or warehouses, can pose a number of cleaning risks and dilemmas. Depending on the purpose of the factory, and what is assembled or produced there, a number of substances, such as oil, grease, glue, solvents, and chemicals etc are often present, and can be difficult to clean using conventional products or methods. As well as ensuring the machinery and working areas are clean, it is also equally important to ensure that all flooring areas are also cleaned to a high standard.

Why should you think about the floor?

In any commercial environment, it is inevitable that the floor becomes the main repository for any loose dirt, rubbish, and other detritus, from general activity and human traffic, not to mention any spills that may occur. It should go without saying that in a busy commercial environment, any items or debris on the floor poses a trip hazard, which can prove to be even more dangerous when surrounded by machinery or equipment. As well as creating dangers for staff and visitors, in violation of the health and safety act, mess, rubbish, or substances that linger on the floor will also create a messy impression on any visitors, and could risk your business reputation during audits and inspections. In addition to this, the constant presence of certain substances and chemicals could also damage the flooring, or cause staining over time.

Every business and organisation, and each area within their premises, will require different things in terms of cleaning their flooring; for example, vehicle production areas will require different methods and products than a food production plant. A professional cleaning service, such as APT Commercial Cleaning, will have the experience needed to be able to accurately assess your situation and deliver the correct methods specific to your needs, while completing the cleaning swiftly, with minimum disruption to your the workforce and production.

What is the best way to manage the floor cleaning?

Hiring a professional service to carry out your floor cleaning in an industrial environment is extremely important. Not only will professional services be able to complete any cleaning in a short amount of time, but they will be aware of what works best based on the floor material or coating, and the sort of substances or debris that are creating a problem. Professional companies, such as APT Commercial Cleaning, have witnessed business and organisations attempt to clean the flooring themselves, only to use the wrong product, which can result in things like paint stripping or discolouration, and cost the business thousands in repairs or replacements.
