Industrial and corporate cleaning services are often provided by commercial cleaning companies, but that doesn’t mean the cleaning process is consistent for both.

In this article, we break down both services and discuss the needs of each property type.

What are corporate cleaning services?

Corporate cleaning services refer to tailored cleaning solutions for corporate entities, usually large offices. These cleaning services typically cover the interior of corporate buildings, including offices, conference rooms, hallways, bathrooms, and other common areas.

Professional commercial cleaners such as ALLCLEAN use well-trained teams to conduct corporate cleaning services. The contracted team is responsible for providing comprehensive cleaning and disinfecting of all areas, in particular high-traffic touchpoints and walking spaces.

Corporate cleaning services are usually completed regularly depending on the needs of the workplace. The services may also be customised to meet specific cleaning requirements, such as deep cleaning, carpet cleaning, window cleaning, and more.

What is industrial cleaning?

Industrial cleaning refers to the cleaning and maintenance of industrial facilities such as factories, warehouses, manufacturing plants, and other industrial environments. The cleaning of such facilities requires specialised knowledge, equipment, and techniques to effectively remove dirt, dust, grime, and other contaminants that accumulate in these spaces.

Industrial cleaning services are typically provided by professional cleaning companies such as ALLCLEAN Property Services Plus. We employ skilled cleaning professionals who are trained to handle industrial cleaning equipment, hazardous materials, and other specialised cleaning tools.

What makes corporate cleaning services so different to industrial cleaning?

Cleaning equipment and processes

‘Cleaning equipment’ can be used to describe a range of tools from wipes and sponges to high-pressure hoses and steam cleaners. Inevitably, corporate offices and industrial buildings may require very different cleaning processes and equipment.

Corporate buildings commonly utilise a more conservative cleaning process, featuring commercial vacuums, handwipes, basic eco-friendly chemicals, and other purpose-built tools. Corporate workplaces are more delicate and require a more careful, controlled approach so as not to disrupt anything. The best corporate cleaning services bring an attention to detail, which is why ALLCLEAN cleaning teams are overseen by a contract manager.

On the other hand, industrial cleaning services are generally more heavy-duty. An industrial facility is often furnished and positioned to maximise functionality, so the area to clean is likely larger. Additionally, the operations taking place at these buildings create a heavier build-up of contaminants. For this reason, more specialised equipment is needed to complete tasks such as:

  1. High-pressure cleaning of industrial machinery, equipment, and surfaces.
  2. Cleaning and degreasing of floors, walls, and ceilings.
  3. Removal of industrial waste, including hazardous materials.
  4. Cleaning of ventilation systems and ductwork.
  5. Disinfecting and sanitising of facilities.

Cleaning chemicals

Where supermarket bought chemicals are sufficient for your household, these products are out of their depth within industrial and corporate cleaning services.

Eco-friendly commercial cleaning chemicals are required in bulk to service large corporate spaces. Surface wipes and disinfectants are used to finish off any harmful bacteria and viruses. These chemicals must be a certified standard to ensure an effective clean every time.

Industrial properties on the other hand, need a little more than a commercial cleaning agent. Industrial strength cleaners are specifically formulated to handle the unique challenges of industrial environments, such as heavy dirt and grime build-up, oil and grease residues, and other stubborn contaminants. Some industrial cleaning agents include:

  1. Degreasers: These chemicals are designed to dissolve and remove grease, oil, and other heavy-duty contaminants from machinery, floors, and other surfaces.
  2. Solvents: Solvents are used to dissolve and remove specific types of contaminants such as adhesives, paints, and other chemical residues.
  3. Alkaline cleaners: Alkaline cleaners are used to remove mineral deposits, rust, and other stubborn stains.
  4. Acid cleaners: Acid cleaners are used to remove rust, scale, and mineral deposits from surfaces.

ALLCLEAN staff are well trained to use these chemicals, ensuring the safety of themselves and anyone within the property. We also use eco-friendly products that are environmentally responsible.

Cleaning times

Professional corporate and industrial cleaning companies such as ALLCLEAN will offer a tailored service to be there when you need them most. Corporate workplaces usually request cleaning to take place afterhours in the early morning or late evening.

Industrial facilities may request the same, though many automated factories and warehouses may be vacant during the day, so cleaning can take place whenever.

Staff requirements

The cleaning staff needed for any property depends on the size and complexity of the building. An office block is less complex, but a more detailed clean is necessary. Industrial buildings are usually far larger, but the heavy-duty equipment on hand often means you don’t need a larger cleaning team.

Safety requirements

Safety always comes first at ALLCLEAN Property Services Plus. We make sure our staff are well equipped and trained to manage any safety risks. Industrial properties are often riskier to clean, so we ensure procedures are in place in case of emergencies. Industrial facilities often deal with hazardous materials and the equipment we use can pose risks if operated unsafely.

ALLCLEAN is ISO Certified in Occupational Safety & Health, which gives you added assurance of our safety and quality.

Different clientele

Corporate workplaces consist of more business professionals, while industrial properties see more blue-collar workers. This differentiation doesn’t make a big deal as far as cleaning is concerned, but their requirements and operations in the building may force a different approach to cleaning.
