Your New Year’s Resolution: A Cleaner, Safer Workplace!

As the dust settles and the holiday season ends, the new year brings about new resolutions that range from the achievable to the downright absurd. Most center around personal well-being and setting goals to achieve professionally. Very few take the time to ponder how to improve the health and safety in their workplace. A 2022 study has shown that employees are more concerned than ever about safety in the workplace. Make this year the time to start making commitments to improving the health and wellbeing of your workplace! At Performance Industrial, we have the tools to help you achieve a cleaner, safer workplace in 2023 and beyond! If you aren’t familiar with the different benefits industrial cleaning services can provide, don’t worry. One reason industrial cleaning services are so important is that they help keep your workspace safe! Building owners and facility managers who utilize our services, understand that industrial commercial cleaning is an investment that adds value to their facility! By maintaining a cleaner, safer workplace, it pays for itself many times over. Here are some of the benefits:

Safe Conditions/Safer Environment

For many, the workplace can be filled with enough challenges and stressors, but justifiable safety concerns can increase stress and anxiety with workers. When employees notice that their employer is taking steps to protect them against workplace hazards, they will feel both safer and more valued as part of the company. Keeping your workplace safe is one of the primary reasons industrial cleaning services are so important. When areas are ignored and left unclean, they can become a breeding ground for bacteria. This can cause an unhygienic environment. For instance, the air ducts in your business must be regularly cleaned to keep free from pathogens. Removing all harmful contaminants can help keep the indoor air quality fresh and reduce energy cost. Most businesses and industries have regulations that they must uphold. When regulations are ignored, the consequences can be very serious. The reality is that running a business can be difficult enough without having to worry about health and safety regulations. When you hire an industrial cleaner it ensures that you are following those regulations.  Performance Industrial’s professionals deliver exceptional service while adhering to environmental, local, State and Federal safety standards.

Improve Your Business’s Appearance

Your customers expect your business to look and feel clean, but how it smells may be the most important first impression of all. Dingy areas are uninviting and give people the wrong idea about your business and how it is run. When a facility is not cleaned properly, unpleasant odors can often arise. Industrial cleaning services can eliminate lingering smells and ensure that your workspace is sanitary. Performance Industrial will ensure your business appearance is presentable, inviting, and without stinky smells.

Protect Valuable Assets/Extend Equipment Life

Dust and dirt can take a toll on equipment and cause damage. Computers, monitors, and machinery can be expensive to fix. Businesses should make it their priority to avoid getting their valuable assets damaged. Dust and dirt are often hard to see which is why the best defense against them is to utilize an industrial cleaning service, who can spot areas that could potentially cause a hazard. Combustible dust is one serious hazard that is difficult to see or smell, that is present in nearly every industry. When prevention is not addressed, the threat of an explosion is very real. That is why OSHA recommends implementing a regular plant maintenance program to collect combustible dust with properly equipped industrial vacuums.

Specialized Tools

Businesses in general do not have the necessary tools for an industrial level of clean. This may sound minimal, but it can make a huge difference in the time and materials needed to make the cleaning effective and safely. The equipment utilized is often industrial grade to offer the highest quality clean that complies with OSHA and NFPA requirements. As mentioned earlier the threat of combustible dust is very real and the safe collection of this material is essential. This requires the use of industrial vacuum cleaners that meet NFPA 652 housekeeping requirements for collecting combustible dust in environments. Performance Industrial will ensure that the latest cleaning techniques are applied, delivering better cleaning results. For instance, the Performance Industrial team utilizes the world’s leading high-level cleaning system that provides a safe easy way to remove built up dust and dirt at high levels. Using specialized tools helps our employees stay safe with cost-efficient alternatives to ladders, scaffolding, and hydraulic lifts. These techniques also make the difficult cleaning jobs easier and quicker. 

Visual Distractions/ Increase Productivity

A dirty environment can slow down productivity in a workplace. Workers feel better in a clean, organized workspace. It is a vital attribute to any workspace that contributes to employees’ sense of wellbeing. When you hire an industrial cleaner, employees will notice that their employer is taking steps to protect them against workplace hazards, they will feel more valued, which in turn helps increase their morale and productivity. Getting the right industrial cleaning service is very important. The problem is that not every cleaning company will provide you with the high-quality service that you need.
