Keeping the warehouse or workshop floor clean is an important task when managing the cleaning service across a commercial site. It’s an area often neglected and can be the source of lots of debris and soiling that’s then tracked into office areas. The result….increased cleaning = increased costs.
We regularly see sites where a client will be fastidious about the cleaning of the office areas. They will implement a daily cleaning service ensuring that all surfaces are well maintained and wet areas such as kitchens and washrooms are hygienic and presented to a high standard but a great cleaning service scope can often be dragged now due to either inadequate or no program for the floors immediately beyond the back door of the ‘white collar’ area. The amount of debri and soiling that can be tracked from a warehouse or workshop area is frightening and can cause significant damage, over time, to expensive floor coverings such as carpet and vinyl. Placement of floor mats at the entry/exit to these areas can reduce the amount of soiling by up to 60% but that’s only part of the solutions. Regular cleaning of the warehouse/workshop floor can significantly reduce dust and the amount of soiling entering the main office area. It also reduces the damage to expensive floor finishes like vinyl and carpet and will reduce the frequency of carpet, vinyl and tile restorative cleaning, saving you money.
Periodic power sweeping and wet scrubbing, are a good combination to maintain a workshop, prodcution or warehouse floor. It also looks a lot better. How often you carry out this service is totally dependent on just how dirty the floor gets.
