What Exactly Is Industrial Cleaning?

Industrial cleaning is defined as the cleaning of light and heavy industrial sites using specialised cleaning techniques for the removal of hazardous and non-hazardous materials. It also includes cleaning methods for general hygiene and the proper functioning of mechanical equipment and production lines. Industrial cleaning services can include both hazardous cleaning services (oil spills, chemical spills, asbestos removals, and mercury clean-ups) and non-hazardous sites (e.g. warehouse floor cleaning). Industrial cleaning can include both emergency once-off cleans and periodical cleans. Whatever type of industrial cleaning you’re after, we can assist you. 

How much does an industrial clean cost?

How Much Does Industrial Cleaning Cost?

The cost of industrial cleaning can vary widely from around £3000 for a small site clean to £30,000 for a large industrial site clean. Ultimately though, the cost to clean an industrial site is difficult to determine without a site visit, risk assessment and methods statement specifying the exact scope of the work and any risks and hazards involved.  The square footage of the site, number of employees for the task, the types of materials and chemicals used, travel time and any additional labour expenses will all influence the total cost. If you’re interested in an accurate estimate for an industrial clean, we strongly advise calling us to discuss. The more information we know about your project, the better equipped we are to give you an accurate costing.

Cleaning Peripheral Areas

Cleaning Peripheral Facilities

Alongside the cleaning of heavy machinery and core industrial units, there are also peripheral facilities that need cleaning. Some of these facilities include locker rooms, cafeterias (tea points), storage areas, security offices, control rooms, laboratories and conference rooms. The cleaning of these facilities is more in line with commercial cleaning and often involves a different set of accreditations based on health, hygiene and environmental considerations such as ISO 14001 and GBAC. Our cleaning technicians are qualified for both types of cleaning (commercial and industrial) and this makes us a particularly attractive solution for companies looking for a simple, turn-key solution that ticks all the boxes of quality and safety assurance.
