Before the handover of a new Food manufacturing plant or warehouse, we remove all dirt and debris left by the builders, clean to standards whereby production can commence compliant with the food standards required.

At the end of the lease, the landlord wants the building in good condition, cleaned to a reasonable state. We have the relevant equipment and skills to return an industrial unit to a state whereby the landlord can re let the property

We are members of the Food Storage and Distribution Federation, and are looking at joining appropriate bodies on the warehouse side.

All our staff have International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) licences whereby they are happy to be working at height even if it is a cold, wet, dirty job which most people are pleased to contract out!

We operate 24/7 especially in the food sector where the plant may have a cleaning window only between 10pm and 6am. This is very appropriate where most in-house cleaning teams do not go above two metres high or they do not have enough time to clean within their production shift . This is also very relevant with a regular maintenance of air conditioning or evaporators that are placed at ceiling height in a chilled temperature.

We carry out in house training and have an excellent Health & Safety record, with no reportable occurrences to date. I meet the team leaders on a regular basis and in between we communicate electronically, which means constant debriefing, and we keep the emphasis on health and safety. In our quotes we break sites down into small areas, give full risk assessments and include digital photos. We have £10m of public liability insurance and full Working at Height cover.

One of our specialities is evaporator/cooler cleans in chilled and freezer chambers. As a matter of course we take airflow readings before and after cleans; typically we record increases in airflow (efficiency) of 60-75%. Much of the electricity these establishments use in refrigeration is wasted because the dirt prevents heat exchange happening, so the simple act of cleaning the coolers can vastly reduce their emissions.
