Dust can impact on our health and yet often amid our daily routines we can lose sight of the importance of cleaning.
Dust often accumulates on high-level surfaces and inaccessible areas and the cost and disruption that is associated with working at height specialists, equipment hire and access equipment means that many businesses allow it to do so. Low standards seen in high places can even be found in prestigious hotels, business venues and food establishments.
Flour dust found in bakeries etc. is a significant problem, it is the second most common cause of occupational asthma in the UK and more seriously if left in a confined space and mixed with enough air it is liable to explode. In 2015 several workers were killed in a wood mill producing wood flour in Cheshire when the flour exploded.
However, in today’s cleaning equipment market there are low cost answers for the most daunting of tasks and high-level cleaning is no exception. High powered vacuums, carbon fibre reach poles, mats that absorb moisture, oils and soils and self-containing cleaning machines to name just a few.
So whether you work in a bakery, commercial kitchen, hotel, shop or office space don’t forget that sometimes dust collects in areas you may not be able to see or reach and that’s where utilising the services of a specialist cleaning company is essential for your business and the health and wellbeing of your staff and customers.
