Industrial cleaning has never been as simple a job as regular house cleaning. The process of cleaning the entire factory area, heavy machinery with a lot of dirt, oil, debris and chemicals requires expertise, effort, and many risks. Therefore, you need to find yourself a professional industrial cleaning team to do this tricky job. But how can we choose a suitable service? Let’s find out in the following article.

Five methods of choosing an appropriate industrial cleaning service

When considering and evaluating cleaning services, you can do the following five ways to bring about the desired results:

  1. Holding Interviews
  2. Requiring References
  3. Checking on Cleaning Process
  4. Asking About Cleaning Products
  5. Checking the Location

1. Hold an interview and discuss directly with the industrial cleaning company

Before contracting any of these industrial cleaning services, you need to make sure that you are clear about all they will do in your area and the reasons they were chosen. And these can be done through a direct interview. You can start by asking about their experience in the industry and how they do the work. How do they build their teams and what industry standards do they apply?Next, ask more detailed questions, such as the average time it takes them to get the job done on a similar size and nature project to yours. You need a service that can complete the job on time.

2. Request industrial cleaning service to present relevant professional documents

To better understand the business of an industrial cleaning company, you should ask them to introduce you to some of the current customers they are serving or previous projects they have worked on, especially projects in the same field as yours. This way, you’ll be able to check their practice and how they do their work, completion results, and reviews from past clients.industrial cleaning vivablast 4-min

3. Learn about your service provider’s before, during and after industrial cleaning procedures

It’s not enough to look at their experience; you also need to dig into their working process.When they arrive at your site, how do they begin to prepare for the industrial cleaning job? Where did they stop by to observe, evaluate, and plan before? Did they start construction as planned or spontaneously? High-quality companies will create a specific task checklist that every team member understands. This list will ensure the team works well together and works towards a common goal. Some critical questions to ask them to include:

  • Do they have a proper cleaning routine in place from the start?
  • Do they prepare carefully before construction and does this step take time?
  • Do they have professional measures or procedures for more difficult areas to clean than the assessment or when problems arise?
  • After completing the work, do they conduct inspection, acceptance or not?

4. Ask about industrial cleaning methods, products and equipment they use during construction

The cleaning methods, equipment and products used are also something that building owners need to consider when hiring industrial cleaning services. Some standard equipment and chemicals can be mentioned as:

  • Cleaning equipment: vacuum cleaner, pressure washer, dry blower…
  • Cleaning tools: Glass cleaner, water extractor, bush pusher, water pusher …
  • Sanitary chemicals: Chemical floor loading, stone floor coverings, floor cleaning, laundry chemicals, spot removal…

Environmental protection factors have also received a lot of attention recently. Therefore, you can prioritize services that use “green” products, non-polluting processes and suitable waste disposal.

5. Check the location of the industrial cleaning company: Are they near you?

Better yet, you should choose an industrial cleaning company located near your area. If you encounter any problems after the construction process, you can contact the cleaning company immediately to fix the problem. For cleaning items that require complicated and bulky machines, the close location also makes transportation and movement more convenient, with less additional costs. A service company near you also makes it easier to meet and discuss contracts face-to-face.
