Tackling the cost of cleaning

The cleaning of a factory comes with multiple types of cost. The most obvious is the monetary obligation to your business, in that the installation, running and maintenance of a system requires capital outlay. You then need to pay your cleaning operatives for their time and labour, as well as regularly purchase chemicals so that they can carry out their duties. Needless to say, utility bills are another unavoidable part of the equation.

We then have the environmental cost: the volume of water and energy required in order for cleaning to be performed to an exceptional standard. The more you use, the larger your carbon footprint. When these factors are combined, it’s no wonder that many manufacturing businesses believe that cleaning costs the earth in more ways than one.

To give a greater feel for the financial and ecological costs involved, here are some eye-opening facts and figures:

  • The average cleaning operative can waste 2.5 million litres of water every year.
  • Empty chemical drums are rarely recycled, resulting in huge volumes of plastic being added to landfill and our oceans.
  • Inefficient systems massively increase the costs of water, energy and labour, deeply cutting into a company’s profit margins.
