Understanding the needs of factory cleaning is a niche we’re particularly specialised in. From industrial floor cleaning through to window and oil spill cleaning, we’re well equipped and trained to deal with any factory cleaning need. In the event of emergencies, we understand the importance of a quick response to minimise disruption and downtime and can respond to meet your specific needs.
Common Services we offer to Factories
Factories are busy places that can often work round-the-clock. So keeping dust and associated debris under control is vital for minimising fire risks and maximising productivity. Here are just a few ways we can help.
Plant and Machinery Cleaning
Dust is a constant battle for working factories. Generated by the constant movement of goods, textiles, machinery and vehicles, not only is it a health hazard, but if dust gets into plants and machinery, it can damage them and reduce their efficiency. In certain machinery, dust can also be a huge fire risk.
Dust quickly becomes airborne and can settle in high, hard to reach areas. And if this build up of dust is then disturbed, it can easily fall into machinery during operation, presenting risks and even affecting the quality of production.
A build up of dust within your machinery will eventually lead to decreased production and increased maintenance, which ultimately affects your bottom line. With periodic cleaning of plant equipment and machinery, you can ensure production is at its most efficient and safest.
Industrial Floor Cleaning
Dust is often associated with high access areas but actually, it can be a huge problem for factory floors. When it collects on normal working surfaces, dust can present a slip hazard; the small particles can reduce the traction of the floor, making slips more likely. Slips are one of the main causes of workplace injury, and of those injuries, dust is one of the most common causes of slips.
It’s not just dust that challenges a factory floor, either. With the amount of vehicular traffic, tyre stains are a common defect. The stains can work into the floor and just like dust, this can compromise the slip resistance of the original flooring. This, in turn, can increase the risk of injury and skidding from vehicles – posing an increased risk to staff.
With periodic deep cleaning carried out alongside regular daily cleaning, your floor’s integrity and lifespan can be maximised. Not only will periodic deep cleaning help improve the working environment and reduce the chance of dust-related illnesses and workplace injuries, but it will help increase productivity all round – from staff and machinery alike.

Periodic Deep Cleaning
Periodic cleaning of your factory, including machinery, can help keep your production at maximum efficiency. Dust can pose varying challenges to the day-to-day running of your operation, and while daily cleaning will help combat these challenges, certain areas are unrealistic to clean daily.
With high-level access equipment and machinery, we can clean all the hard to reach areas where dust likes to collect, including lighting and windows. Subsequently, the periodic cleaning of these will help increase the Lux lighting levels, potentially saving you on energy bills.
By investing in periodic deep cleaning, you are guaranteeing a clean and safe environment for your business and for your staff. Straight away, you reduce the risk of work-related injuries and illnesses, and are helping to maximise the longevity of your building and the building materials.
