It might be that when you think about a warehouse, you think of a building where inventory is kept and little more. You may not think about the people who work there unloading and loading or about people who might need to see a warehouse as part of a business deal, such as investors, buyers, clients, and company managers. There is also the fact that a warehouse is a building with many open spaces, usually not a lot of foot traffic. Buildings left on their own can attract rodents, insects, and mold, all of which are detrimental to the goods stored there. And no one working there or checking on the warehouse wants a rat to scurry by their feet or spy a cockroach when they remove a box from its position.
Warehouses of all sizes need to be carefully cleaned and maintained for maximum usage both in safety and continued serviceability of the structure both inside and out. In fact, OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Association) has a number of rules and guidelines that, if not being followed when the building is inspected, can cause fines and sometimes the closure of the building until the problems are fixed. It has been proven that warehouses without proper maintenance, which includes professional cleaning, are far more prone to accidents and greater risk of health hazards such as asthma and infections. With the past two years of fighting COVID, the spread of viruses has become a major concern. Additionally, most warehouses have at least one office and restroom which need regular cleaning.
Lower maintenance costs as stored machinery and inventory may need more maintenance if they are dirty, oily, or rusting from moisture condensation.
Help prevent accidents of workers loading and unloading as spills, debris lying around, and poorly maintained machinery are waiting to cause problems.
Reduced insurance costs are often determined by the number of accidents reported.
Better working environment for those employed in the warehouse, which will, in turn, lead to improved work standards and a more satisfying job. When workers feel good about where they work, the amount of profitable work increases, and there are fewer absences from sickness and not wanting to work.
The building itself will look and “feel” better when the walls and floors are clean, inventory is protected from possible spoilage, and building construction materials will last longer.
Offices and bathrooms used by workers and visitors will be clean and sanitary. Many business deals, especially with women, have been nixed when the business bathroom is dirty and missing toilet paper.
