The Role of Professional Cleaning Services in Keeping Your Warehouse Clean and Safe
Maintaining a clean and safe environment in your factory is critical to ensure production targets, Health and Safety compliance, and the longevity of your high-value assets. Calling in trustworthy factory cleaning experts like APT can save you time, money, and stress in the long run. In this article, we explore the importance of factory cleaning, the risks of using an inexperienced team, and the benefits of using professional cleaning services like APT. We also highlight a case study showcasing our solution to a client’s cleaning needs.
The Importance of Clean Warehouses & Factories
Maintaining a clean and safe warehouse is crucial for your business’s success. However, it can be challenging to prioritise cleaning alongside other critical decisions like production targets and Health and Safety compliance. Entrusting professional cleaning services like APT can save you time, money, and stress. Our team of trustworthy factory cleaning experts can ensure that your warehouse is cleaned to the highest standards, giving you peace of mind to focus on other important aspects of your business.
Industrial plant and equipment will inevitably become oily and greasy, trapping airborne particles which, over time will cover your high value assets in grime. Even though the most important parts of the mechanism are sealed and protected, there is no guarantee that this grime won’t be transferred accidentally to places it should not be where potentially it can cause a breakdown.
Safely Clean Warehouses & Factories
Maintaining a safe and clean warehouse is crucial for your business’s success. However, it can be challenging to prioritise commercial cleaning alongside other critical decisions like production targets and Health and Safety compliance. Some businesses may believe that using their own maintenance crew to clean the warehouse using a pressure washer and 25L of an industrial degreaser is a cost-effective solution. However, this approach can cause significant damage if not used appropriately, leading to costly repairs and replacements.
To ensure the best results while minimising the risk of damage, it’s best to entrust your warehouse cleaning needs to professional cleaning services like APT. Our specially designed Super Heated Steam Cleaning system, Soda Blasting, and Dry Ice Blasting methods are less damaging yet more effective cleaning methods that require high levels of training to get the best results. In addition, we have specialised equipment like cherry pickers, scissor lifts, and accredited (by IPAF & IRATA) rope access teams to handle high-level access and safety compliance.

The Importance of Cleaning Warehouse Floors
Maintaining a clean and safe warehouse is essential to prevent dirt and grime from entering your facility through various routes, such as workers’ shoes, palettes or stillages stored outside for weeks or months, and doors. This grime can pose a significant danger to your workforce, especially when wet, potentially causing slips and injuries that require time off work and may even lead to a claim against the company.
Regular maintenance cleaning of the factory floor by professional factory cleaning specialists can prevent these hazards and save your company thousands of pounds in the long run. By entrusting your cleaning needs to experts like APT, you can ensure that your warehouse is cleaned thoroughly and effectively, including floors, walls, roof, plant, and machinery, as well as high-level access and safety compliance. Our team of trustworthy factory cleaning experts has the expertise, training, and equipment to handle all your cleaning needs, giving you peace of mind to focus on other important aspects of your business.

Specialist F&B Warehouses & Factories
Maintaining proper hygiene in any food processing or manufacturing facility is a critical factor in avoiding heavy fines and lengthy shutdowns. Beyond dirt and grime from outside the factory, you also need to contend with food residues (uncooked and cooked), blood, oils, fats, bacteria, and viruses that crop up in unclean warehouses. The right techniques and equipment must be used to clean warehouses, including, floors, walls, conveyors, work surfaces, ovens, and other machinery, which can be stressful and time-consuming to manage while juggling daily operations.
Astute warehouse managers understand the importance of calling in professional food factory cleaning services & warehouse cleaners to handle these challenges. Expert clean warehouse companies like APT have the right equipment, cleaning products, and trained personnel to carry out the cleaning quickly and efficiently.

Clean Warehouse & F&B Factory Cleaning – Case Study
Roha UK Ltd needed food factory cleaning, commercial deep cleaning, high-level cleaning, and sanitizing of internal surfaces and machinery at their food ingredient manufacturing plant in Caldicot, South Wales. APT carried out a full cleaning survey of the production areas within the food factory, recommended the most cost-effective options, and agreed on a health and safety plan and suitable work schedule to minimize disruption to production. APT provided a comprehensive deep warehouse cleaning solution that covered all the areas within the food factory, including the high-level cleaning.
APT used its specialist lift access platforms and commercial cleaning equipment to carry out the high-level cleaning, which included using Ultraclean MB, a food-safe, heavy-duty degreaser, to clean and sanitise all surfaces. The use of Ultraclean MB as a single-source cleaner for all factory cleaning has saved the client both time and money while ensuring the highest standards of health and safety are maintained. The outcome of the factory deep cleaning and high-level cleaning project was a huge success, with Roha achieving a Grade A in food hygiene standards for their clean warehouse. APT also proposed plans for future ongoing maintenance cleaning at the factory in South Wales.
Cleaning Products Used:
APT carried out the deep cleaning to the factory to a high standard and within the timescale set by the client. After liaising with the client’s plant managers several proposals were made for future ongoing maintenance for clean warehouses. One was the use of Ultraclean MB food safe cleaner and sanitiser as a single source cleaner to replace several other cleaning products previously used. The client now continues to use APT Ultraclean MB degreaser and cleaner for all cleaning to ensure their clean warehouse.
What Our Client Said:
“Our Audit was great, we achieved a Grade A. We are definitely going to purchase the Ultraclean MB going forward, we just need to implement the verification and change of procedures.”
