Looking after a building is a big operation for any major business whether it be a supermarket, warehouse, school, hospital, restaurant or a cocktail bar. Maintaining the place from the floors, walls, ceilings and any other components that are key to running of the business, should be given top priority. With floors covering a vast space, investing in a good quality industrial vacuum cleaner is important. But with so many industrial vacuum cleaners out there, it can be hard deciding on which one is suitable. Industrial vacuum cleaner suppliers Depureco have put together some tips on what to look out for when investing in an industrial vacuum cleaner for your business.

Safety

Safety is paramount in a workplace both for employees and its customers. One of the ways you can ensure everyone’s safety is by investing in a battery powered or electrical industrial vacuum cleaner . The lack of a cable means no one will trip up due to the power cord. It is also important to look out for superior cleaning and disinfecting capabilities of an industrial vacuum cleaner to reduce the presence of harmful bacteria in the environment. You may want to consider an ATEX certified vacuum , which will help protect against the danger of explosion in the presence of flammable gas and dust. Dust can also trigger allergies and asthma, so another option is to consider a HEPA vacuum that can help reduce the amount of dust you inhale. A high-efficiency particulate air filter can filter out 99.7% of small particles. Finally, a riding industrial floor cleaner machine should be cushioned for comfort and have adjustable seats for users to help reduce spinal injuries or back pains.

Power

When choosing the power source for an industrial vacuum cleaner , business owners have two choices. They can choose between battery-powered or electrical industry cleaning machines . Battery-powered models give users a lot more flexibility and are regarded as high efficiency vacuum cleaners because they cover more space with less hassle. Operators won’t have to worry about searching for an electrical outlet and the risk of anyone tripping over will be eliminated. But if cost is an issue when investing in industrial vacuum cleaners , battery operated vacuums may work out more expensive because they require more maintenance and must be fully-charged before being operated.

Noise

When investing in a high efficiency vacuum , you may want to consider noise. Some industrial vacuum cleaners are a lot noisier than others. This is crucial if your business requires daytime cleaning when customers are in and out of the building. Industrial cleaning machines that don’t go beyond 70 decibels of sound are ideal to keep noise down. But if noise isn’t a problem because cleaning is done late at night when there is little foot traffic, business owners will not have to worry about noise pollution when it comes to customers. They may however, still think about their employees and provide them with headphones to block out noise.

The trusted suppliers of industrial grade cleaning equipment are based in the West Midlands and operate across the UK.

There are certain times of year when your restaurant will be busy. Whether it’s Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Mother’s Day, there are lots of times where staff will be rushed off their feet. That’s why it’s important to always have a plan in place to ensure everything is still done properly during these times, from ordering to accounts, and one area that can get neglected is cleaning. Using industrial cleaning machines can help to keep your West Midlands Restaurant clean, and get it ready for the next day of trading. Here are some tips to ensure you’re ready to open on time during busy periods.

Get prepared

Having a plan in place is essential for busy periods. If your restaurant is somewhere like Birmingham’s city centre, you may open late morning for lunch, and be open until late at night, which doesn’t give you much time for planning. That’s why it’s important that those on the closing shift use a high efficiency vacuum , and get the dining room ready for the next day. Some other things that should be done at night include:

·        Cleaning the kitchen and all crockery

·        Wiping down all tables

·        Cleaning floors in all areas

·        Checking the bathrooms are clean

·        Laying the tables for the next day

·        Ensuring the tills have been cashed up and have plenty of change

It’s always better to have staff stay slightly late, rather than opening late the next day because things aren’t ready, but if you have a plan in place this shouldn’t be necessary.

Have a checklist

A checklist ensures that all the night-time jobs are done properly, and nothing is missed. This can be really helpful when food prep needs to be done the night before, or if you need to remind people to use the sweeper vacuum before they leave. It also means that staff can’t cut corners and claim they forgot to do something, as it’s easy for you to check.

Deep clean

Cleaning can often get neglected during the busiest times, but if you have lots of big groups of people, then it’s more important than ever. To avoid having people stay late, consider investing in an industrial vacuum cleaner , which will keep the carpets looking fresh for the next day. Anything you can do the night before will help staff on the day shift, and ensure you don’t open up late.

Clean around customers

If you have a 24-hour business, or often suffer from late night stragglers, then your staff might need to start cleaning before everyone has left. This can make the process more efficient, and ensures people aren’t staying too late. Using a high efficiency vacuum and closing one section at a time can really help, plus this avoids the problem of more customers coming in and demanding service.

Keeping the floors clean is an everyday challenge for any commercial space, as a large number of traffic frequents the area every day. Be it a mall, hospital, hotel or a multinational, dust and debris will cover the floors far more than the walls and ceilings.  This demonstrates that the importance of keeping the floors of any commercial space clean, although it may prove a tough and costly affair.

Find a solution

Sweeping and mopping floors manually everyday is not an easy task, and in a large organisation, it will save you time and money to opt for a smarter way of working, for both you and your staff. Instead of continuing with traditional tools such as broom and mop, which may prove ineffective and even exhausting, innovation has improved industrial cleaning machines in a number of ways, and they now prove invaluable in improving the hygiene and aesthetics of your organisation.

Choose your preferred model or what suits your needs

Ideal for commercial space cleaning, industrial vacuum cleaners , floor sweepers and floor scrubbers do much efficient work than a regular broom or mop. For instance, an industrial floor sweeper makes the work easier, whether you choose a ride-on model or walk-behind. This reduces the chance of injury for your staff operator as well as providing easy usage. Simply select the one that is more suitable for your space as both the options are manufactured for the sweeping of small as well as enormous industrial and commercial floors.

How industrial cleaning machines are the intelligent choice

*Efficient Cleaning

Technology makes our lives easier and more comfortable than ever and purchasing an industrial cleaner of any description can mean removing excess manpower. Industrial vacuum cleaners will clear up heavy duty debris and are built to deal with large amounts of waste that normal vacuum cleaners are not. This saves the operator time in emptying bags and restarting their work, thus they do not need to work the long hours after the business has closed, and saves on excess overheads when your company is not in operation. The efficiency of these machines shows significant cost savings over time. It has also proven to be more hygienic and give better results than a normal after-hours cleaning team, even from the most reputable cleaning company.

A better environment for your team

One of the best features of industrial cleaning machines is the time saved on the job. Employees do not have to deal with cleaning teams interrupting their workflow, the cleaning team do not have to work long hours, and everyone is happier in a cleaner, safer environment with less noise pollution and interruption.

Economical for now, and the future.

There is no doubt that the industrial sweepers and vacuums are more cost effective due to their durability and longevity. They also do the work faster than any manual labour, and as mentioned, deliver stellar results that may not be gained from a cleaning team of ten people.

When you step into a shop, what’s the first thing you notice? While you might think it’s the displays or signage, the cleanliness is one thing that customers really do think about. We often take it for granted that shops will be clean and tidy, and only notice if a shop is messy, so it’s important that the first impression that customers get is a good one. If you own a shop in the West Midlands, where there’s a lot of competition, here are just a few of the reasons why cleanliness is so important.

Health and safety

When customers enter your shop, it’s important to keep them safe. Dirty floors or spills can lead to slips and trips, and using industrial cleaning machines can provide an easy way to clean them up quickly. You should ensure you vacuum your floor regularly, not just at the end of each day, as this will give you an excuse to clear any clutter, and ensure there aren’t any tripping hazards in the way.

First impression

First impressions count in retail, and whether your shop is located in the Birmingham Bullring, or the Grand Western Arcade, it needs to look as clean as possible. Using a sweeper vacuum regularly, and ensuring staff clean during quiet periods helps you to:

·        Ensure your shop looks welcoming

·        Make it a more pleasant place to shop

·        Keep the shop looking fresh and clean

·        Help make your products look more appealing

Nobody wants to spend money in a shop that’s grubby and dirty, as they may feel the products are also unclean. By cleaning your shop regularly, you are more likely to make a sale.

Find products easier

If people come into your shop with a certain product in mind, then they want to find it easily. Not only should your shop be well organised, with similar products grouped together, but it should regularly be decluttered and cleaned with a high efficiency vacuum . If the shop is clean and tidy, customers are more likely to come inside and look for the product they need, and will have a much more pleasant experience overall.

Cleaning different areas

Keeping staff motivated is also important to running a great retail business. In addition to cleaning the shop floor, make sure you use an industrial vacuum cleaner to hoover the back rooms and staff areas. This will ensure staff can find items that aren’t on the shop floor, and replenish stock easily, as well as being able to relax when they are off-duty. Retail can be a tough job, so it’s important that the entire store is clean and pleasant to cheer up both staff and customers.

The West Midlands is full of amazing restaurants, with something to suit all tastes. From the Balti Triangle in Birmingham, to village pubs on the outskirts of Telford, there are lots of restaurant owners in the area, of all which must follow strict hygiene procedures in day to day operations. One area that can be a challenge to keep clean in a restaurant or takeaway kitchen is the floor. With loads of people milling about, trying to get food served as quickly as possible, the floor can soon be a mess. However, with properly trained staff and the right equipment on hand, you can ensure your floor is clean and safe. Here are some reasons why cleaning your kitchen and dining area floors is so important, and the best ways to do it.

Health and safety

Health and safety laws about flooring are strict, and your floors should be:

·        Suitable for purpose – i.e. non-slip

·        Free from obstructions

·        Free from spills and contamination

·        Free from trip hazards such as unanchored mats

If a spill occurs in your kitchen, it’ll therefore need to be cleaned as soon as possible. For dry spills, an industrial vacuum cleaner is a great option, as it’s so much more efficient and quick than a standard vacuum. For wet spills, you may need a scrubber dryer or similar piece of equipment. Wet spills can be dangerous, as the floor can often look dry when it’s not, so getting the right equipment is key.

Inspections

The Food Standards Agency carries out inspections around the West Midlands area, and publishes the results online, meaning any member of the public can see your hygiene rating. Whether you run one of the large curry houses in Birmingham city centre, or one of the cosy Mediterranean restaurants in Sutton Coldfield, you’ll have both surprise and scheduled inspections. It’s important that high levels of cleanliness are adhered to, so using a HEPA vacuum on your floors can make a big difference to the first impression that you make, ensuring areas such as carpets are dust-free.

Customer perception

The busy restaurant scene in the West Midlands is very competitive, and that’s why customer perception is so important. You need to know that your dining area is clean from top to bottom, and using a high efficiency vacuum ensures that your carpets are thoroughly cleaned before you start serving. While customers don’t normally notice the floor, they’ll certainly notice if debris is left behind, or if the carpet generally looks unclean, so make sure a proper vacuuming is carried out before you open. Cleanliness is one of the major factors that determine customer experience, so it’s something that staff should always be aware of.

We all love having a clean, calming home to relax in, but when it comes to the workplace, our cleanliness habits can go out the window.  From blocks of serviced offices in Telford, to businesses on the Pensnett Estate or Gravelly Industrial park, every workplace needs to have a clean and pleasant environment in order for employees to thrive. If clutter and dirt has built up, then it might be time for a deep clean. Here are some ways that it can benefit your workplace, whether you work in an office or industrial environment, and how you can get the best results.

Keeping people safe

Workplaces that are cluttered or dirty can often be dangerous too. Health and safety is important to the modern workplace, and avoiding injuries at work will ensure you don’t have staff taking long periods of sickness. Using industrial cleaning machines is the best way to ensure the job is done to a high standard, and this has functions such as:

·        Removing debris

·        Cleaning up spills

·        Cleaning dust and allergens

·        Clearing the area of hazards

This makes it easier to keep people safe, and makes the workplace a more pleasant place to be.

If your workplace is an industrial environment, then you may need specialist cleaning equipment as a health and safety requirement. If you deal with hazardous chemicals or explosives, give Depureco a call, as they’ll be able to advise on their range of products designed for industrial use.

Improving productivity

If you’ve ever tried to work somewhere that’s dirty or cluttered, you’ll know how distracting it can be. Unfortunately, it’s easy for workplaces to become a mess, especially during busy periods, but clutter can mean that doing tasks takes longer. By having a good de-clutter, you can ensure it’s easy to find things such as tools and paperwork as you need them. If you’re using an ATEX certified vacuum , then decluttering makes it much easier to clean in industrial environments, such as manufacturing plants around Wolverhampton and other areas.

Many studies have shown the impact of a clean work environment on employees, and it not only reduces sickness, but helps them to do their jobs better, so your workplace becomes more efficient.

Prevent damage

Whether it’s an expensive piece of manufacturing equipment or your office carpet, proper cleaning and maintenance can save money in the long-term. For example, if you use a high efficiency vacuum , you remove all the debris from your carpet, so it wears down less and lasts for longer. If you invest in something new for your business, you need to know that it’s going to last, and a regular deep clean can help.

The West Midlands is a lively area, and there’s always a big event going on, whether it’s a gig at the NEC in Birmingham, or a conference at The International Centre in Telford. Many people visit the area on a regular basis to take part in major business or cultural events, and they usually go off without a hitch. But how do you clean up after hundreds of people have visited your venue? Having a plan for clean-up in place before the event starts is essential, and here are some things to consider.

Clean quickly

There are many reasons why quick clean-up is necessary after a big event. This can be because:

·        The space is needed for the next day

·        You may have to pay additional costs if the space isn’t cleaned up by a certain time

·        Rubbish can attract vermin

·        Leaving spills or mess can cause permanent damage to flooring, which you might have to pay for

Therefore, make sure you have enough staff staying after the event to carry out the cleaning. If it’s a particularly late night, you might want to just do the basics, then come back to do a deep clean. By using industrial vacuum cleaners , the floor can be cleaned quickly and efficiently, so staff aren’t still cleaning late into the night. If you hire a venue in the West Midlands, you’ll often have to sign an agreement that it’s back to the condition that you found it in before the event, and quick, thorough cleaning will ensure you aren’t left with a big bill.

Assign areas

Depending on the kind of event you’ve thrown, there will be different areas that need cleaning, from kitchens to meeting rooms and auditoriums. The venue needs to be put back into the condition you found it in, therefore you should assign areas to staff, and ensure they have industrial cleaning machines suitable for the task. Venues such as the NMC have many different rooms, some of which will be cleaned by in-house staff, while others will need to be cleaned by yourself, so make sure you know in advance what needs to be done.

Know your spills

The type of cleaning equipment you’ll need will depend on the type of event you’re throwing. Generally, conferences are quite sedate, so it’ll mostly be vacuuming and cleaning surfaces, whereas at gigs and film screenings, there can be a lot of leftover cups and debris, so you may need a sweeper vacuum that can handle the task. Certain areas may need the use of a scrubber dryer for wet spills, as people can be careless when there are large crowds. A bit of forward planning can make all the difference, and ensure the job is carried out to the highest standard.

If you run a venue and want to know how industrial cleaners work, get in touch with Depureco, who are based at Haybrook Industrial Estate, Unit C4, Halesfield 9, Telford, West Midlands, TF7 4QW, and supply products across the UK. Simply call 01952 588 881, or e-mail enquiries@depureco.co.uk today.

It’s always a relief to get to the end of a working day, and nobody wants to hang around for ages after closing time. That’s why it’s important to have a quick and easy closing-up routine, so people know what needs to be done, and can get your premises ready for the next day of trading. Ensuring that cleaning is done quickly means staff get home on time, and you aren’t stuck paying loads of overtime while clean-up is done. With many shops in the West Midlands, such as those in Birmingham’s Bullring now staying open later, it’s important that closing is done quickly and efficiently, and here’s how investing in the right equipment can help.

Make a checklist

Making a checklist is the easiest way to ensure your workplace is properly closed up at the end of the night. It should cover things such as:

·        Cleaning of equipment

·        Cashing up

·        Cleaning counters and floors

·        Restocking for the next day

·        Locking up securely

Whoever is in charge can then delegate tasks, so everyone knows what needs to be done. A checklist also makes it easier to come up with a plan for cutting the times down. For example, if you struggle to clean a large retail floor, then you might want to buy a high efficiency vacuum to make the task easier, or have more than one to hand to get the job done quicker.

Cleaning thoroughly

While you want closing time to be over as quickly as possible, it’s important that staff don’t do a shoddy job. If you run a shop or restaurant in a prime location such as Resorts World, then you want to ensure the place looks at its best. Investing in a HEPA vacuum ensures that all dust and allergens are removed from the floor, without having to go over the area repeatedly.

Clean as you go

The best way you can make closing time quicker is to have people clean as they go during the day. While deep cleaning is difficult while customers are around, you can use a sweeper vacuum to do one area at a time, meaning that cleaning won’t be as difficult at night. Try to work out when quiet periods are coming up, as they are excellent times to have a quick tidy up.

Deep cleaning

Another way to make closing time clean ups easier is to have the occasional deep clean. A weekly deep clean of counters and equipment will mean that only minimal cleaning will be needed during the week, making life easier. This could be done on a Sunday, or a day when you close early, so there’s minimal disruption to your normal trading hours.

Many of our first-time customers come to us aware only of the fact that they need a new cleaning solution for their facility. However, they aren’t sure precisely what type of machine they would most benefit from. Fortunately, the experts at Depureco are here to help.

Our reputation in supplying high-quality industrial cleaning machines precedes us, local facilities managers naturally turn to us when they need help. We’ve helped countless clients ascertain whether an industrial sweeper, scrubber or a combination of the two is going to be best-suited to their needs. With that in mind, we thought we would share some of that insight here in this post to help you determine which type of cleaning machine is best for you.

What’s the Difference between a Sweeper and Scrubber?

The difference between these two types of cleaning machines is relatively straightforward. A sweeper is essentially an industrial vacuum cleaner that will clear your floor of dust and debris. This is a particularly important cleaning machine for warehouses and manufacturing plants that produce a great deal of dust. Regular sweepers often just spread dust around, but an industrial sweeper will properly remove it from the facility.

Scrubbers, as the name suggests, rely on scrubbing pads to loosen grit and grime so that it can be removed from the floor. These operate in conjunction with water and cleaning chemicals that need to be periodically replenished. Operating a scrubber is a bit more labour-intensive, but this type of cleaning method is necessary for facilities involved in food manufacturing – or in plants where oil or grease is likely to get on the floor.

Both cleaning machines have their own advantages, but it’s fairly clear to see at this point that each performs its own specific task – and there isn’t a lot of overlap between them. With that in mind, some facilities might get away with using only a sweeper, but most are going to be better served by a combination of the two.

We Have a Comprehensive Range of Scrubbers and Sweepers in Stock

At Depureco, we have a wide range of sweepers and scrubbers in stock for you to choose from. These include walk-behind models and ride-on models. In addition to that, we also offer combination models for the ultimate in convenience and efficiency. These sweeper-scrubbers make short work of messy facilities – scrubbing down grime, removing dust and leaving your floors sparklingly clean.

We also have several different sizes of models available. The optimal size for you will depend on the size of your facility as well as how often it needs cleaning. If you’re not sure about size or whether you need a sweeper, a scrubber or a combination, feel free to contact us through the website or by calling 01952 588 881. We can arrange to conduct a no-obligation site survey and provide you with a quote on the best cleaning solution for your facility.

It's becoming more and more common for businesses to open 24 hours a day. From restaurants to supermarkets, there are lots of businesses that have found it makes good sense to never close, and this means they can target customers such as last-minute shoppers and shift workers who might not otherwise spend their money with them. However, running a 24 hour business has many challenges, and one of them is keeping the premises clean. If you never close, when can you do a deep clean? Here are a few tips for maintaining cleanliness levels in a non-stop environment. 

Get the right equipment  

When a cleaning job needs to be done quickly and efficiently, then having the right equipment is essential. If your business is a 24 hour one, then you'll only have small windows of time to do the cleaning, so should choose wisely. Opt for an industrial vacuum cleaner that'll pick up dirt and debris easily, and can handle a commercial environment. Also, in a 24 hour business, your equipment needs to be sturdy enough to be operated several times a day, and a vacuum made for industrial use is ideal. 

Work out your quietest times  

Although your businesses may be open all hours, there will be certain times when there is a lull, which is the perfect time to clean. When running a 24/7 business , everything needs to be carefully planned, but you should also leave flexibility in case there's an unexpected rush. 

Some particularly quiet times might be: 

  • During school hours
  • In food service environments, in-between usual meal times
  • Sunday and bank holidays
  • The summer months 

Once you've identified a couple of quiet periods during the day, you can get someone to use their time to give the place a quick clean or use a high efficiency vacuum to get the floors looking good. You can then schedule deeper cleaning on days such as Sunday, which are quieter for the majority of businesses. Some 24 hour businesses still close at 4pm on Sunday, re-opening first thing Monday morning, which gives you a window of time to do the jobs that can't be done around customers. 

Work around customers, safely  

If customers are always going to be around, then it's important you learn to clean around them, without compromising safety. For example, if you need to clean the floor, you could close sections as you clean, putting up wet floor signs to ensure people are aware. Some industrial cleaning machines are designed to draw in as much waste water as possible while they clean, which means the floor dries quicker and sections won't need to be closed as long. 

To find cleaning solutions that suit busy, 24 hour businesses, contact Depureco who are based on Haybrook Industrial Estate, Unit C4, Halesfield 9, Telford, West Midlands, TF7 4QW. Supplying industrial cleaning equipment across the UK, you can simply call them on 01952 588 881 to get expert advice.
