If you run a logistics operation then chances are that somewhere you have a warehousing/storage operation. This infrastructure can be the cause of sleepless nights, especially if the goods being stored are of a perishable nature. The storage of foodstuffs can be especially challenging due to the constant fear of rodent and insect damage to the goods.
Another challenge is keeping the warehouse clean when vehicles are constantly in use. The use of vehicles such as forklifts invariably means a build up of dirt and grease on surfaces throughout the warehousing/storage area.
One of the ways to ensure that the goods are safe and undamaged and that
the warehouse is always clean is to employ the services of a professional
cleaning contractor who will ensure that the highest levels of hygiene are maintained at all times. The second option is to train your own staff in the use of
cleaning equipment and purchase this cleaning equipment yourself.
There is a variety of cleaning equipment on the market, many manufactured in the Far East and on the face of it representing excellent value for money. However if
you choose to purchase cleaning equipment that will be used in an industrial
environment it is always preferable to purchase equipment that is sourced from
a manufacturer that has a long track record of success in the often punishing
industrial setting. This is one of those many cases where a lower purchase cost
might not translate into long term value for money.
When doing your investigation about which cleaning solution would be right for your warehousing operation, be sure to evaluate leading professional cleaning
solutions such as those offered by Kärcher.
