The importance of having a clean workplace cannot be overstated. How would you like to work in an office or manufacturing facility with dirt and grime everywhere? Would it even be safe to work in such an environment? No matter how sanitary your employees try to keep the area, it still won’t look very nice to clients or customers. That’s where industrial cleaning services come into play. There are many different types of industrial cleaning services that can help you get your facility back into tip-top shape.
1. Manual Cleaning
Manual cleaning services involve physically moving the dirt and debris out of the facility. These services are very cheap but can be messy. A lot of work is involved, so these areas must be cleaned multiple times until they look clean. These are best for smaller spaces that require a lot of attention daily.
2. High-Pressure Spray Cleaning
High-pressure spray cleaning is similar to manual cleaning but doesn’t involve as much physical labor. A pressurized stream of water mixed with an industrial-grade detergent or sanitizer is sprayed onto the area. This can effectively kill germs and remove dirt, but it does not penetrate hard-to-reach places where fine grime can hide.
3. Immersion Cleaning
Immersion cleaning is when the area to be cleaned is immersed in a specially formulated cleaning solution. This solution can penetrate hard-to-reach areas and break up even the toughest dirt stains. It can also be used as a deep sanitizer, killing germs and disease-causing microbes in deep crevices that most other methods cannot reach. Immersion cleaning is slow and labor intensive but an excellent choice for removing deep-seated dirt or stains.
4. Wet Abrasive Blasting Equipment
Wet abrasive blasting equipment is designed to blast away layers of rust and grime with a high-pressure spray. This method can be effective, but it’s not the most versatile. Wet blasting is only effective on the outer layers of rust. It is also very susceptible to dust and debris. If used in an air-conditioned area, the blast will pull dirt into the building and cause dust to be blown throughout the facility.
5. Foam Cleaning
Foam cleaning is the best method for cleaning large open spaces. Foam cleaners are very light and work best with large surfaces that can be covered quickly. The foam cleaner can expand to fill all available space, ensuring it touches every inch. It is gentle enough to use on many hard surfaces like countertops but tough enough to remove tough stains from floors.
Sandblasting is a very effective sanitization method. It is similar to a high-pressure washing machine but uses sand instead of water. The sand is shot at the area to remove bacteria and reduce dirt and grime buildup. It can be used in areas that don’t have access to utilities or facilities, but it can only be used in open spaces.
7. In Situ Cleaning
In situ cleaning involves the cleaning of one item and its surrounding area at the same time. This is done by removing the item from its location and placing it in a specially designed tank filled with cleaning solution. When the item is returned to its place, it will be clean and the surrounding area. This allows for excellent sanitization but can only be done on removable items. If a piece of equipment cannot be removed from its location, it cannot be cleaned in situ.
