Questions to Ask Before You Hire a Cleaning Services Company for Factory Cleaning
When your manufacturing facility or factory has inspections looming, you can’t trust just any cleaning services company to do the job right. Cleaning a home or office is totally different from cleaning a factory. The job is harder, and the task is more difficult. And if the business you’ve chosen sends four people with no experience and no industrial cleaning equipment? You’re in trouble.
Old Fashioned Janitorial Service has over 32 years’ worth of experience working in the cleaning industry. We’ve tackled everything from homes to corporate megaplexes to large-scale production factories. But not all our competitors can say the same. So before you choose the cleaning services company for your Lexington business, ask the following questions first:
1. Have you cleaned a factory before?
This is a double-edged sword of a question because while the cleaning company may have cleaned a single factory floor before, you want to be sure they have experience with a wide variety of layouts. While you may be making a single product, your business isn’t one-size-fits-all and neither should your cleaning solutions be.
2. Can you do the cleaning while production is closed, or do you need to interrupt my schedule?
The last thing you want to do is miss a whole day of production because the company could only come in at 1:00 p.m. on a Thursday. If the cleaning can’t be done during the evenings or weekends, try to schedule it during a slow season. Or just call someone who can do it at a time that works for you—may we suggest Old Fashioned Janitorial Service?
3. Do you know the workplace safety and cleanliness standards for the state of Tennessee?
Maintaining a clean and tidy factory floor isn’t just good for productivity. It helps with every aspect of your business. It reduces the number of sick days your employee takes, reduces the risk of industrial accidents, and helps with your product’s quality control.
And, most crucially, regular factory cleaning brings your company into line with the state’s workplace safety and cleanliness laws. This isn’t something you can just do when you feel like it. If you hire a company that doesn’t clean according to code, you might as well just do it yourself—or hire someone that already knows the regulations.
4. Do you have the right industrial cleaning equipment?
Not every cleaning services company will have the right tools for the job. While it’s fine for a house, sweeping and mopping a factory floor by hand isn’t going to cut it. You need a company that will bring their own floor scrubber as well as any solvents, sealants, and disinfectant products the job might require.
