Finding the Right Facility Services Company

Posted on May 6, 2015

If you are in charge of a facility where people work, one issue that you surely have to deal with constantly is cleanliness. This is especially true if many people are coming and going and the employees are doing work that leaves behind a lot of trash or other debris. As you know, industrial facilities can become very dirty in just a short period of time, and that is why having a cleaning plan is paramount. If you currently do not have a system in place or you are looking for a new one, it is important to find a quality cleaning company that offers facility services.

What do Facility Services Entail?

When looking for the right company to clean your facility, first and foremost it has to be able to do all of the things you need it to do. Some cleaning companies only provide certain services. This is why it is important to get a detailed and thorough list of what they will do for you ahead of time. You may hire a company assuming that they do a particular task, only to find out that it is not something they offer. This could end up costing you a lot of time as well as money.

A company that offers complete facility services should be able to handle the following:

Overall Cleaning

An overall cleaning of a facility includes just that: Every part that needs to be cleaned will get the attention it requires, including cobwebs commonly found in corners and high places. We also use color coded cloths designated for break rooms, restrooms, and offices to prevent cross contamination.

Removal of Trash

For many facilities, this is significant. Plants and factories that produce a lot of garbage need to have people in on a regular basis to get rid of it. The build-up of trash could be a safety hazard and, depending upon what it contains, could also be a health risk to employees and anyone else who comes in contact with it.

Recycling

Along the same lines of trash removal, recycling is also something that needs to be done often, particularly if the facility has a lot of cardboard and other paper products that can pile up quickly. Many of the items to be recycled can be fire hazards when left to accumulate in one area.

Handling of Hazardous Materials

If the facility is involved with the production of chemicals or a manufacturing process that uses them, they have to be handled properly. In addition to being dangerous to health and safety, certain materials have strict rules as to how they need to be handled and discarded.

Floor Waxing Services

Our cleaning professionals understand the science behind proper floor waxing. Floor care for an industrial plant requires knowledge of the right chemicals and correct techniques.   We are also experts in maintaining vinyl composition tile (VCT) surfaces.
