Industrial cleaning services address the unique challenges of keeping large spaces clean and safe.

Industrial Cleaning Services, Explained

The industrial market is booming in the Twin Cities, with 9 million square feet currently under construction. While this will bring an unprecedented amount of industrial operations to the Minneapolis area, this also means an increased demand for commercial cleaning services. With no relief expected anytime soon in this already tight labor market, businesses that operate industrial facilities can benefit by outsourcing these comprehensive cleaning services.

What Are Industrial Cleaning Services?

Industrial cleaning services specialize in servicing warehouses, manufacturing plants, self-storage, and factories. Due to these facilities' high traffic and production volume, they accumulate a higher volume of dirt, debris, spills, grease, oil, and other contaminants. Industrial cleaning addresses these greater demands and safety standards to ensure sustained operations.

Typical Cleaning Services for an Industrial Property

Industrial cleaning services encompass many services similar to conventional janitorial. These include services that maintain the integrity of the physical plant, including building floors, walls, ceilings, and fixtures.

  • Floor cleaning, stripping, and refinishing

  • Window cleaning

  • Carpet cleaning

  • Trash removal

  • Bathroom cleaning

Industrial cleaning involves services beyond these basic facility maintenance tasks. These are customized cleaning services that address the unique needs of the industrial facility. For example, it could include pressure washing, heavy equipment cleaning or sanitizing, exhaust cleaning, or loading dock washing. In addition to trash removal, industrial cleaning can address large cleanup requirements. This could include the removal of hazardous waste or the cleanup of chemical spills.

Equipment and Machinery Cleaning

Industrial facilities commonly have large machinery or equipment that need regular cleaning and sanitizing. Industrial cleaning services can address these needs. For example, cleaning services could include mold removal, component vacuuming, conveyor belt cleaning, or HVAC cleaning.

Companies That Require Warehouse Cleaning Services

The type of companies that require industrial cleaning are those that operate large facilities with heavy equipment. These facilities typically require long operational hours that require cleaning services to be effective yet also unintrusive.

  • Factories

  • Manufacturing facilities

  • Pharmaceutical manufacturers

  • Power plants

  • Distribution centers

  • Industrial warehouses

  • Self-storage facilities

OHSA Standards For Industrial Cleaning

Several OSHA standards outline industrial cleaning best practices and standards. Businesses operating an industrial facility must maintain these standards. Contracting with an industrial cleaning service makes this possible.

  • OSHA 1910.134

  • OSHA 1910.22

  • OSHA 1926.51
