 Budgeting for Industrial Cleaning

Indus­tri­al clean­ing is a nec­es­sary part of main­tain­ing a clean, safe, and func­tion­al facil­i­ty. This type of clean­ing is often more inten­sive than oth­er forms of com­mer­cial clean­ing, as it may require OSHA cer­ti­fied access, spe­cial­ty equip­ment, process with­in an oper­a­tional man­u­fac­tur­ing envi­ron­ment and space con­tain­ment. These tasks should only be per­formed by con­trac­tors and ven­dors who pos­sess the appro­pri­ate expe­ri­ence and exper­tise with these tasks.

Hir­ing reli­able indus­tri­al clean­ing con­trac­tors does not always come cheap how­ev­er; equip­ment, knowl­edge, and labor all come with a high val­ue. Still, you may wind up pay­ing a high­er price in repair costs for not clean­ing your facil­i­ty. So, you must fig­ure out the best way to bud­get for indus­tri­al clean­ing costs. Let us go over the basics so you can get prepared.

How to Bud­get for Indus­tri­al Cleaning

What Should Your Bud­get Include?

  • Cur­rent Costs: If you own or man­age an indus­tri­al facil­i­ty, you know that there are sev­er­al costs to keep track of on a reg­u­lar basis. What you invest in indus­tri­al clean­ing ser­vices just stacks on top of your cur­rent costs. Make sure you keep those cur­rent costs in mind when craft­ing your bud­get. You do not want to run out of impor­tant resources while clean­ing your facility.

  • Pre­ven­ta­tive Main­te­nance Costs: What are you cur­rent­ly invest­ing in pre­ven­ta­tive main­te­nance? Indus­tri­al clean­ing is a form of main­te­nance, so if you have an exist­ing main­te­nance bud­get, you can include these clean­ing costs as a part of it.

  • Future Plan­ning Costs: Do you have or fore­see any oth­er upcom­ing costs for your facil­i­ty? Will you need to invest in new equip­ment, floors, staff, etc. soon? Under­stand­ing how Indus­tri­al Clean­ing and Pre­ven­tive Main­te­nance roll into your Cap­i­tal and Expense bud­gets is some­thing we can help with.

Addi­tion­al Con­sid­er­a­tions When Budgeting

Phys­i­cal Plant, infra­struc­ture and equip­ment are a huge part of Cap­i­tal bud­get plan­ning, and you also have to think about the larg­er impli­ca­tions of invest­ing in indus­tri­al clean­ing ser­vices when build­ing a bud­get. Here are some addi­tion­al considerations:

  • Your Goals: Is the pur­pose of clean­ing main­ly for aes­thet­ic rea­sons or to fix prob­lems, Safe­ty, fire haz­ard reduc­tion, etc. What are you look­ing to achieve from indus­tri­al cleaning?

  • Future Plans for Your Space: Do you want to expand, add equip­ment, or change your floor plan? Is this a short-term or long-term goal? How does indus­tri­al clean­ing fac­tor into this vision? What needs atten­tion now, and what can wait, if necessary?

  • Indus­tri­al Con­tain­ment and Cleanup: Will clean­ing ser­vices put a hold on your oper­a­tions or be in your way? How might this affect your prof­its? We are able to work while you con­tin­ue to operate.

  • Impact on Pro­duc­tiv­i­ty: Is an unclean work­place decreas­ing pro­duc­tiv­i­ty? How much is this affect­ing your bot­tom line and employ­ee sat­is­fac­tion and morale? Will indus­tri­al clean­ing help improve these things?

Costs and Risks if You Neglect Indus­tri­al Cleaning

There are, of course, plen­ty of costs and risks you might incur if you fail to invest in indus­tri­al clean­ing and oth­er forms of facil­i­ty main­te­nance. These include the spread of con­t­a­m­i­nants and par­tic­u­lates, risk of fire, gen­er­al prod­uct dam­age, lost time, and more. All of these poten­tial costs must also fac­tor into your bud­get. After all, they might lead to larg­er, more expen­sive prob­lems down the road, which prop­er clean­ing could help you avoid.
