As the seasonal retail rush nears, we have the expertise to provide depot and office cleaning services to FM, retail, and logistics companies
At this time of year, everyone is looking for an online bargain, especially in the current economic climate. Whether it’s thinking about Black Friday deals, or shopping early for stocking fillers, retailers are busy. But even if a retail business conducts most of its sales online, there’s still the need for physical workplaces too. From processing orders in offices and data hubs, through to fulfilling them out of warehouses and transport facilities, it can be a complex chain of different worksites. For facilities management (FM) and logistics companies, there’s often a diverse portfolio of environments to keep clean. In this blog, we take a closer look at depot cleaning and attendant office cleaning services.
Cleaning depots, keeping online purchasing safe
Whether they’re in retail, storage/ distribution, or other areas of logistics, many businesses outsource management of sites to FM companies. In turn, it makes sense for FM companies to outsource their depot cleaning to specialist cleaning companies. Here at REACT, we’ve got the experience and expertise to keep depots clean, so that they meet health and safety standards and operate at peak efficiency.
We provide the highest standards of cleanliness in relation to all areas of workshops and depots. There are many different areas which need regular and ad hoc cleaning. We offer high-level cleaning services for interiors and exteriors, using the right technology for the job in hand, such as mobile elevating work platforms (‘cherry-pickers’). Floors can become heavily soiled, notably with oil, engine fluids, and other spillages; we work with contractors to provide a comprehensive cleaning service for all depot and loading bay floors. And we won’t overlook cleaning any public car parks, to maintain the company image and a safe working environment.
Mitigating risks for hazardous substances
Many FM companies will be working on sites which handle substances governed by COSHH regulations (The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health). A spillage of any COSHH-controlled substance often requires a specialist response to handle the clean-up and remove the waste which this generates. These situations require the fastest levels of response and competency.
We can arrive around the clock within four hours, to make impacted areas safe in the shortest possible time. Specialist PPE combined with advanced materials and technology enable our cleaning operatives to resolve the situation thoroughly. We support the highest standards of health and safety for all our clients.
Office cleaning, whether it’s the everyday or an emergency
Many sites which FM companies manage are themselves quite diverse. If there’s a depot to clean, there’s often an attendant office too. And cleaning these two different environments is a varied task. Here at REACT, we’re able to handle office cleaning as well as depot cleaning. In addition to our reactive services which are vital for depots, we offer contract cleaning solutions too. From emptying waste and recycling bins, through to sanitising office equipment, we’re on hand to keep the office running smoothly and safely. Where possible, we can work outside regular office hours, so that our operatives don’t disrupt everyday operations.
We can also provide emergency cleaning, to deal with spillages, flood and sewage, or smoke damage. Whenever FM companies have a cleaning emergency, they can rely on REACT to stop it becoming a crisis. Our cleaning operatives are first response specialists, so we’re on hand when you need the expertise for the job. We’re also available to carry out decontaminations when necessary, with our robust four-step infection control methodology. It’s all part of the service here at REACT, allowing our clients to keep their own staff and customers safe.
