The cleanliness of your warehouse is a key indication of its effectiveness. That’s because cleaner facilities tend to be more productive, organised, and safer too. As suppliers of a wide range of safe and efficient warehouse storage solutions, here at Shelf Space we know a thing or two about that it takes to keep premises clean and efficient.
So here we’ve put together a quick guide to some top tips to help you banish the clutter and destroy the dirt and grime!
Providing plenty of bins and waste disposal facilities will encourage your employees to properly dispose of any waste in your warehouse. This is vital given that pieces of paper, and other packaging supplies, combined with a little dust, can make the floors in your warehouse as slippery as an oil slick!
But don’t just install plenty of bins, you need to ensure that these are emptied regularly too. Overflowing bins will lead to more rubbish on the ground, so it’s important to make sure that you get into the routine of emptying the bins in your warehouse before they are completely full.
Make a Plan
If you want to keep your warehouse clean then it’s important to make a plan of action to ensure exactly that!
Scheduling in some regular cleaning - rather than doing a deep clean every so often - could save you plenty of time in the long run. After all, if you don’t allow dirt and clutter to build up, then there will be less of it for you to remove - simple!
Some areas of your warehouse will probably require more cleaning than others, so make sure to factors this into your plans too. Taking the time to make a proper assessment of your facility will help you to determine which areas require daily cleaning and which areas are likely to need only weekly maintenance.
Focus On Your floors
If there’s one area of your warehouse you’re going to want to keep clean, it’s your floors. After all, cluttered or dirty floors are a recipe for slips, trips and a whole host of other disasters. With this in mind, it’s essential that you ensure these are swept and kept clear of any dirt or debris on a daily basis.
