Why Are Industrial Cleaning Services a Vital Part of Your Maintenance Strategy?

You have preventive plant maintenance scheduled for things like calibration and part replacement, but did you know that industrial cleaning is an important part of your overall maintenance strategy? From your offices to your production floor and machinery, industrial cleaning services will keep your employees safe, save you money, and help you control your wastes.

What is Industrial Cleaning?

Your daily commercial cleaning routine usually involves things such as wiping surfaces and mopping floors, cleaning restrooms, and polishing glass or mirrored surfaces. Industrial cleaning companies address the hidden dirt and grime in your facility, such as on or in your equipment. Over time, grime travels throughout your building to your offices and shared spaces. It’s impossible to remove without specialized processes, chemicals, and protective clothing. Even though we provide our cleaning services year round, think of them as a deep spring cleaning for your facility.

Nearly all products and machinery must undergo a thorough cleaning to remove hazardous particles, grime, and grease that will otherwise inhibit the safe and efficient operation of the facility. This heavy-duty cleaning typically involves using solvents and degreasing solutions, along with physical methods, including power washing.

Here are four benefits of partnering with an industrial cleaning services company.

1. Industrial Cleaning Keeps Your Environment Healthy

A closer look at your machinery and facility surfaces will tell you that dirt, debris, and particulate matter are still issues, even when you clean your facility regularly. This not only detracts from a visual perception of “clean” surfaces, it may contribute to employee illness and unsafe working conditions.

You may be surprised to find grime caked on surfaces in areas you’d never expect, such as offices and restrooms. Industrial cleaning will tackle these problem areas along with their root causes, and restore a healthy work environment for your employees and visitors. Professional cleaning services may also help you meet certain OSHA regulations.

2. Savings in Both Time and Money

Partnering with an industrial cleaning company will allow you to spend less time and resources on routine cleaning, since your in-house staff will be starting with cleaner surfaces to begin with. You’ll also be extending the life of your equipment by reducing wear and tear caused by buildup of grease and dirt on your expensive machinery. When your production floor is clean and running smoothly and safely, you will lower the risk of breakdowns and employee injuries.

3. Increased Productivity

A clean workspace leads to happy employees, which in turn leads to increased productivity. Your cleaned machinery will also operate far more efficiently, increasing output and reducing losses caused by cross contamination and improperly functioning equipment. 

4. First Impressions Matter

Letting the professionals give your facility a full scale industrial cleaning will give you peace of mind in knowing that everyone, from visitors to clients and inspectors, feels good about being in your buildings. First impressions matter, and when your facility is clean, that first impression will be an excellent one.
