October 21, 2019

Industrial premises, by definition, are sites for manufacturing, altering, repairing, cleaning, washing, breaking-up, adapting or processing any article. Such activities may involve different heavy machineries, toxic chemicals and harmful materials that might contaminate a certain area if left neglected.

That is why cleaning the said industrial premises requires tedious work. By doing the dirty work, cleaning professionals must not only ensure the safety of the area. They must also ensure that they perform their task in the safest way possible.

Below are safety precautions on how to clean industrial premises.

Chemical Documentation and Proper Handling

In order to assure safety, they must be able to document the chemicals they used to clean the premises. They must indicate chemicals including the amount of litres they used. They must also include a short description on how they used it. They must list the type of danger and hazard it can cause and where it must be stored so that accidents will not occur in the long run. The chemical documentation must also include material safety data sheet (MSDS) and first-aid information.

In cleaning industrial premises, all of the chemicals and cleaning products must have clear labels and safety data sheets readily available so that staff knows exactly what materials they are handling and where to look for additional safety information. This is critical to preventing accidents and injury.

Additionally, there are certain processes that can ensure the safe cleaning of industrial premises. 

High-Pressure Washing

High-Pressure Water Washing is highly used in cleaning industrial premises. It is a safe, cost-effective method of cleaning interior and exterior surfaces. High-pressure washing is the most common industrial cleaning service. It can be applied to just about every process plant or client facility. In high-pressure washing, the machine removes deposits and built up material by using water at varying pressures and flow rates depending on the amount of dirt and waste material in the premises.

Liquid Ring Vacuuming

Liquid Ring Vacuuming ensures the safety of handling toxic and harmful chemicals in an industrial facility. A liquid ring vacuuming truck efficiently removes and transports liquid and semi-solid waste materials, both hazardous and non-hazardous. The trucks are also used in spill clean-up operations and for in-plant hauling or transfer for most liquids and sludge.  Many of the units have full rear opening doors, facilitating clean out at the completion of a project.

Oil/Water Separators

Oil/Water separators are systems that are normally expensive to maintain. However, it can address a number of problems in an industrial premise. Such problems include sludge build-up, excessive floating oil or various detergents, and spilled chemicals reaching the oil/water separators. These issues can greatly impact the facility in a negative manner. If neglected, some significant ramifications of these problems include regulatory violations, ineffective operations, or even oil discharging into the sewer system. Oil/ water separators are necessary in industrial premises because they can maintain both a simple system and a more complex one with baffles, coalesces, and oil skimmers.
