Keeping a warehouse tidy, clean and well maintained is essential for a number of reasons. First and foremost a clean warehouse is a healthy warehouse. Warehouses are a haven for dust and dirt, making it a potentially hazardous environment for employees. Moreover, keeping a clean warehouse, much like maintaining an office or commercial space, will help to increase employees’ productivity and promote a positive working environment. Just because a warehouse is out-of-bounds to the customers, makes it no less part of the business. However, cleaning a warehouse possesses a number of unique problems. Warehouses typically encompass large and expansive areas and are likely to harvest a number of different wastes such as chemical spills, oil leaks, metal and wood shavings and even fuel spills. In order to ensure warehouses are kept in good condition, then it is crucial that businesses utilise the cleaning power of pressure washers to remove grease, dust, grime and dirt. Due to the heavy-duty cleaning applications that pressure washers will need to cope with in a warehouse environment, then it is recommended that businesses select units with high pressure levels. High pressure levels can help to ensure that even the most stubborn stains can be removed from hard, porous surfaces like concrete. However, businesses should be wary that extremely high pressure levels can actually cause further damage to any loose or damaged masonry. So consider what surface needs to be cleaned and select a pressure washer that produces a suitable level of pressure. Businesses should take note that pressure levels are not the only aspect one must consider. For warehouse cleaning, pressure washers that are able to produce high temperatures work best. Hot water pressure washers have this capability and emit hot water to remove heavy-duty and embedded stains from warehouse flooring. There are also tri-mode pressure washers available. These machines can operate as hot water, cold water or steam systems and offer the operator a heightened versatility for a wider range of cleaning applications. Flow rates also need to be taken into account. The flow rate is what determines quickly the pressure washer is able to clean. So you’ll need to estimate the size of your cleaning task and determine the appropriate flow rate to complete that task. The higher the flow rate, the more surface are can be cleaned within a short time. Lastly, know what attachments and accessories are available. Using the right ones will enhance cleaning tenfold and some examples of useful additions are extension pressure hoses to clean over long distances or to reach high places, auto-shut off functions, and spray guns. As discussed there are a number of reasons why cleaning a warehouse is just as important as keeping other, more visible, parts of a business clean. Pressure washers can help to improve a warehouse’s cleanliness, increase employees’ productivity and enhance the image of your business by helping to keep a warehouse looking spotless, clean and gleaming. And, due to the various formats and models of pressure washers there is no shortage for businesses to choose from.
