General Cleaning for Warehouses

Warehouse Commercial Cleaning Sydney by DryTech Commercial Cleaning Services Sydney

If you run a business that involves large-scale manufacturing or shipping and you have one or more warehouses to take care of, you know it’s not an easy job to keep them clean.

It is impossible to try and clean your warehouse on your own. Trying to do the warehouse cleaning yourself is both costly and time consuming. A warehouse is a very large space to clean and you do not want to be investing precious time and money trying to clean it to professional standards.  What you really need is a trusted commercial cleaning service.  It is important that you find the right one who can do the job right the first time.

Warehouses and factories that handle toxic chemicals and compounds will require the services of a specialist industrial cleaner.  This article however, deals with general warehouse cleaning and why it is important that you engage a commercial cleaning company to do the cleaning for your business.

Warehouse Cleaning

Warehouse cleaning is large-scale cleaning.  The size of the warehouse requires the right equipment, the best cleaning solutions and the right expertise to clean it properly.

If you are using a professional commercial cleaning service but are not happy with their work or if this is the first time you have to hire a company, you will want to be aware of the benefits of hiring a commercial cleaning company that have the capabilities to perform the job.

Commercial Cleaning Companies for General Warehouse Cleaning

Choosing the right commercial cleaning company is an important consideration.   Here are some important things to look out for when you are deciding on the company.


It is important that the company has the right equipment for warehouse cleaning.  This include industrial-scale vacuums, blowers, steam cleaners, dehumidifiers and all the cleaning accessories (brushes, brooms and so forth) required to clean a large space efficiently.   Ask the company if they have the capabilities to clean a large space before you engage them.

Cleaning Staff

It is equally important that the commercial cleaning company you choose to clean your warehouse should have the right number of trained staff to do the job.  A one-man operation may not be the best option when time is a consideration.  Untrained cleaning staff can make mistakes that may be costly to your business.  Check what cleaning accreditation the commercial cleaner has.  An Australian approved standard is a reliable yardstick for your decision making.


If other business owners have used the cleaner’s services and are happy with the results it is likely you will also be satisfied.  Check their website to see if they have any customer testimonials.  Ask for ‘Before’ and ‘After’ photographs if they have any.  Cross-checking accreditation is also a good indication of evidence of best practices.


The cost of warehouse cleaning will vary depending on your specific needs, which you must communicate clearly to a company before signing any contracts.

Professional companies should be able to have an in-depth conversation with you about your particular requirements and be able to deliver quality results on a consistent basis.


The company you choose must be flexible with its cleaning schedule.  Most warehouse operates 24/7 so agreeing on the best time to clean the space is an important consideration.


Sometimes it may be helpful to create a checklist of all the items in the warehouse you think will require professional cleaning.  A checklist helps you negotiate the best price and prevent blowing the cleaning budget with additional tasks not originally discussed in your agreement.


The professional commercial cleaning company must have the appropriate insurance to indemnify your property.  They must also be prepared to give you a service guarantee for their work.

Commercial Cleaning for Warehouses

If you’re looking for a new commercial cleaning company to take care of your warehouse cleaning, be sure to ask critical questions to make sure that the company is trustworthy and reputable.

Make a list of your specific needs ahead of time and discuss with the company when you call them. A good commercial cleaning company should be flexible regarding both services and timing.  They must also be at the best price.  Rather than going for just a cheap service, settle for one with the appropriate insurance and service guarantee.

Having professional cleaners in your warehouse is essential for health and safety. Commercial cleaners ensure that the warehouse is kept clean and sanitised to professional standards   A warehouse that has been professionally clean can minimise the risk of harmful allergens and germs that can make your employees sick.  This in turn, can significantly reduce staff absenteeism and sick leave.  A clean and hygienic work environment demonstrates a caring employer who takes the wellbeing of their staff seriously.  Employees are happier working in this environment and may be more productive in their work.

A clean warehouse can also help your business pass business or professional accreditation and standards.  If the business deals with perishable goods, then a clean and hygienic warehouse is absolutely essential.   The best way to ensure you meet standards is to hire a commercial cleaning company that has Australian cleaning accreditation.   Do not forget to clarify that their cleaning team are also qualified and accredited.

Instead of investing in hiring a team of cleaners, training them and buying equipment and products to enable them to perform their duties, you may want to consider discussing a regular general cleaning agreement with the right commercial cleaning company.   Most cleaning companies offer attractive terms for long term projects.
