Does Industrial Cleaning Disrupt Business?

If you own or man­age a man­u­fac­tur­ing facil­i­ty, you already know reg­u­lar indus­tri­al clean­ing is impor­tant. It is also true that the last thing you want is for facil­i­ty or equip­ment clean­ing to dis­rupt busi­ness or stop work. That is why it is impor­tant to hire pro­fes­sion­al clean­ers who get it” and work around your sched­ule and your needs to help improve your bot­tom line. After all, time lost equals dol­lars lost. When plan­ning your indus­tri­al clean­ing sched­ule for max­i­mum pro­duc­tiv­i­ty, there are a few things to consider.

What to Know About Clean­ing’s Impact on Busi­ness Operations

When to Com­plete Your Indus­tri­al Cleaning

Clean­ing needs and times vary by type of facil­i­ty, prod­uct man­u­fac­tur­ing sched­ule, and facil­i­ty hours of oper­a­tion. Depend­ing on your needs, you may sched­ule cleaning:

  • Dur­ing nor­mal oper­a­tions: It is pos­si­ble to work with an indus­tri­al clean­ing crew who can get the job done dur­ing nor­mal facil­i­ty oper­a­tions. Our cus­tom space con­tain­ment ser­vice will allow this to occur.
  • Dur­ing hol­i­day or week­end clo­sure: If your plant clos­es on hol­i­days or week­ends, that is a great time to get your indus­tri­al clean­ing and facil­i­ty main­te­nance done. Your con­trac­tor can help you sched­ule these clean­ings through­out the year so that every­thing looks great and remains free of haz­ard, con­t­a­m­i­na­tion and FOD (for­eign object debris). Our expe­ri­ence work­ing off hours will ensure the task is com­plete on time.
  • Dur­ing a sched­uled shut­down: Busi­ness units will not want their oper­a­tions inter­rupt­ed. We will pre­pare for each task and oper­ate the way you require dur­ing this com­pressed time frame, to guar­an­tee your busi­ness units are oper­a­tional when they return.

Our indus­tri­al clean­ing pro­fes­sion­als and project man­agers have you in mind at every turn, and can work around your schedule.

Ben­e­fits of Con­tain­ment for Your Clean­ing Project

If you need to have indus­tri­al clean­ing done dur­ing your nor­mal hours of oper­a­tions, it is time to cre­ate a con­tain­ment strat­e­gy that:

  • Meets all rec­om­mend­ed health and safe­ty standards.
  • Cre­ates a bar­ri­er that min­i­mizes your employ­ees’ dis­trac­tion while they are on the job.
  • Pre­vents spread of all dust and debris from the con­tain­ment site to oth­er areas of your facility.
  • Pre­vents fire haz­ards and main­tains clean­ing team and facil­i­ty employ­ees’ safety.
  • Is eas­i­ly portable so that it can be tak­en down and moved through­out your site.

We can cre­ate a con­tain­ment strat­e­gy that works for your facil­i­ty infra­struc­ture and for your indus­try spe­cif­ic health and safe­ty require­ments. Con­tain­ment is use­ful in any indus­tri­al or com­mer­cial set­ting, and is espe­cial­ly valu­able in indus­tries whose prod­ucts and man­u­fac­tur­ing process­es are high­ly sus­cep­ti­ble to con­t­a­m­i­na­tion (agri­cul­ture, health care, aero­space, tech­nol­o­gy, etc.). 

Con­sid­er­ing Paint­ing? Clean­ing Comes First

Indus­tri­al clean­ing should be planned accord­ing to your indus­try guide­lines and the amount of foot and equip­ment traf­fic through­out your facil­i­ty, as well as fre­quen­cy of equip­ment use. But do not for­get that before any paint is applied (or reap­plied) to any sur­face or equip­ment in your facil­i­ty, the sur­face needs to be thor­ough­ly cleaned. That way, no unseen con­t­a­m­i­nants or bond-break­ers are lurk­ing beneath an oth­er­wise beau­ti­ful paint job.

Kaloutas can sched­ule and com­plete facil­i­ty or equip­ment clean­ing jobs any­time, with­out work stop­page. Our team will work accord­ing to your sched­ule, your health and safe­ty pro­to­col, and your secu­ri­ty require­ments. What­ev­er your clean­ing, con­tain­ment, or facil­i­ty main­te­nance needs, we work how you work! Con­tact us today to request an indus­tri­al clean­ing esti­mate.
