Keeping your equipment clean is an important part of any industrial job. Dirt and debris can become lodged in moving parts and cause them to quit moving. After a long day, employees are not your best option for a thorough cleaning task. The work will be done quicker and more efficiently by hiring a company, like Q Clean Pty Ltd, that specializes in industrial cleaning. Depending on the type of equipment you need cleaned, choose an option that best suits your needs.

Vacuum Cleaning

Vacuum cleaning is the best way to remove dirt or debris from the bottom of a tank or pit that is filled with a liquid. Once the vacuum is in contact with the bottom, very little liquid will be sucked in. It is very useful in getting waste material out of a septic system. If you are cleaning out a tank of some sort, a vacuum prevents the need for someone to climb inside to do the cleaning.

High Pressure Water Cleaning

High pressure water cleaning is great for removing hard or ground in dirt from equipment. It will also clean concrete, asphalt, wood or steel. If you need to remove rust or paint, it is safe for the equipment and does the job quickly. It is great for cleaning the floor in the workshop or removing the caked on mud from cranes and other vehicles. If a pipe or tubing is clogged, using a burst of water will usually dislodge it.

Chemical Cleaning

When a piece of equipment has become covered with sludge or scale deposits, it may take chemical cleaning to get it all off. The chemicals used will depend on the deposits. Greasy substances found on an oil burning furnace will require a different chemical than one used to remove a build-up of calcium around a water tank. An industrial cleaning company will have the experience and proper chemicals to take care of all your equipment.

To maximize the amount of work that gets done during the workday, reduce the amount of special cleaning equipment and save money on repairs, have everything cleaned by professionals on a regular basis. Your employees can take care of quick, daily cleaning but should not be expected to get all the deep, embedded or caked on debris. If you notice a piece of equipment is starting to slow down, or not work properly, the right cleaning method may keep things running and allow you to finish the job on time.
