A clean facility helps to promote positive employee morale in more ways than just promoting safety. There is also the simple fact that it is more pleasant to work in a well put together space. Sure, there are the stereotypical messy art studios or the famously cluttered desks of so many intellectuals, but a warehouse isn’t an art studio.
Professional workplace cleaning can help create a space that is both welcoming and pleasant. Before the cleaning crew arrives, take note of these warehouse housekeeping tips:
Eliminate Clutter – Not only can you create a more efficient space by eliminating clutter on the floor or in your offices, but a professional cleaning company will be more effective as well. Cleaning hard floors can be a labor-intensive process and clutter will just slow it down. This is by far the easiest way to keep your facility clean. We’re not talking about the down and dirty work. Just put things away.
Clean Up Spills Right Away – Spills can stain concrete floors and present a major slip hazard until they are cleaned up. Have some “caution” signs handy to be deployed whenever necessary. Just because you’ve hired a professional cleaning company doesn’t mean you should leave messes until the crew arrives.
Consider Installing Mirrors and Warning Signs – Sure, this one isn’t strictly cleaning related, but putting up mirrors around corners is an important part of having a safe, organized facility. It is important to be aware of your surroundings at all times, especially when maneuvering heavy equipment.
