A clean workplace is essential in all departments, and warehouses are no exception. In fact, we might even say that a closed environment with a lot of machinery and heavy lifting is more in need of proper cleaning than any other work environment. Implementing professional cleaning services for warehouses can improve efficiency and make the working environment healthier.
Professional Cleaning Services for Warehouses
General cleaning and maintenance in a warehouse will make it easier to keep track of inventory and work more efficiently. The lack of clutter, waste, and debris will make it easier to move around, preventing accidents. Although we are not responsible for the organization of your warehouse, we can help improve the air quality and the cleanliness of the space so that your employees are able to breathe and work safely.
While a warehouse may have large open garage doors to transfer goods in and out of the facility, some warehouses are completely shut off from the outside world. Another factor is the use of heavy machinery, from forklifts to trucks and other vehicles. Our team can help eliminate toxic emissions from the machinery.
Cleaning and Air Quality Improvements
Warehouses are often dusty environments. This is especially true in facilities with untreated concrete floors. Specialty floor care, like concrete polishing, will reduce the amount of dust and dirt in the warehouse, which will lead to improved air quality. A dusty workplace can cause health issues and is generally an unpleasant working environment. Reducing dust with regular cleanings of all surfaces will make for a healthier and more productive work environment. We will also clean employee restrooms, breakrooms, and any other common areas to the highest standards. Periodic pressure washing of any concrete or exterior surface is also very effective in removing stains and grime left behind from machinery and large vehicles, and will give even the dirtiest warehouse an improved image.
We also have high-grade air purification systems using ActivePure® Technology. The improved air quality will improve productivity and reduce sick days, headaches, itchy eyes, and runny noses.
OSHA Standards Compliance
Professional cleaning services provide facility maintenance and follow proper cleaning protocols. This will help to reduce accidents by eliminating spills and other potential hazards to prevent accidents and injuries.
Keeping up with maintenance requirements will also help your business avoid fines and penalties that can result from having an unsafe work environment.
Having a well-maintained warehouse will help to improve the reputation of your business. The result is a happier, more satisfied workforce and improved employee retention. A warehouse with a good reputation will also enable you to attract the most qualified talent for your warehouse.
