If there’s an area of cleaning that requires a specialist approach, it’s modern-day manufacturing. With state-of-the-art IT controlling delicate machinery, manufacturers need their cleaning crews to be careful. At the same time, some parts of the manufacturing process are still dirty and produce potentially hazardous materials. So manufacturers also need specially trained operatives to do work such as confined space cleaning. In this blog, we’re looking at how here at Fidelis, we have the requisite skills to deliver world-class cleaning across the manufacturing sector. We’ll focus on three areas of cleaning that are especially important for our industrial clients.  

Our cleaning operatives have the skills our manufacturing cleaning clients need 

We have more than 20 years’ experience in the manufacturing and industrial sector. All projects are thoroughly planned out before we undertake any work. A site survey identifies what is specifically required, highlights problem areas, and ensures that all health and safety standards are met. This creates efficiencies in both time and money, and it means we can be proactive rather than reactive to challenges you may encounter. We focus here on three areas where we can deliver results:  

  1. Daily conformance cleans 

We provide deep cleaning, decontamination, and sanitisation services to comply with all relevant government guidance and health & safety requirements. This proved to be especially important during the Covid-19 pandemic before premises reopened and teams came fully back to work. We partner with you to assess potential risks posed by infectious diseases to advise on what you require to maintain a safe workplace for your employees. 

On a daily basis, we sanitise all high-risk touch points and surfaces throughout the building using a viricidal disinfectant solution, alongside the Fidelis approved cleaning processes as precautionary measure. We can also undertake decontamination cleans of all surfaces, equipment, touch points, toilets, washrooms, showers, where there has been a confirmed infectious disease outbreak in the workplace.  

  1.  Washrooms and consumables 

Maintaining a spotless hygienic washroom facility is essential for manufacturing and other industrial facilities. Fidelis can provide you with a full range of paper products and dispensing systems, as well as soap and hand wash products to suit all budgets. We’ll provide the highest standard of cleanliness and hygiene via professional cleaning and sanitisation, regular quality inspections and well stocked consumables. Whether it’s customer or staff toilets, we can provide tailored, expert solutions on everything in your washroom, from handling waste to providing signage on reminding staff of important cleaning protocols.  

  1.  Industrial deep cleans, even in hard-to-reach areas 

Fidelis works with many customers within the light and heavy industrial sectors. We are specialists in confined space, deep cleaning, manufacturing and heavy industrial deep cleans for shutdown, regular maintenance, and specific heavy clean works. We help you with your industrial cleaning needs, providing periodic deep cleans and kitchen deep cleaning, as well as quarantine and emergency call out cleans. 

We can provide deep cleaning, even in the hardest-to-reach areas of a manufacturing or industrial facility. For instance, with high-level cleaning, we can help to ensure that pipework, ductwork, and cladding are well maintained. Our high-level cleaning services also include guttering and the exterior of buildings, including cladding. Using specialist tools and environmentally friendly materials, our aim is to ensure that you maintain operations and comply with health and safety legislation. And we’re also experts in confined space cleaning.  

Our deep cleaning operatives hold a range of certifications and qualifications, including NEBOSH Certificate in Occupational Health & Safety, IOSH, Confined space, Working at Height, PASMA, Qualified Competent Person for Auditing LOLER Inspections, SafePQQ, Safe Contractor, NPTC – PA1 & PA6 Certified, IPAF, Face Fit Testing, and Harness & Fall Arrest Lanyard inspections.  

We strive to make every contract a case study in best practice. As one of our industrial sector clients puts it: “Since our new agreement and partnership with the Fidelis Group across our six manufacturing sites, we have been delighted with the dedication, communication and efficiencies introduced by the Fidelis management team and operatives. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Fidelis Group as a partner of choice.”
