Food Processing & Distribution Warehouses:
Food storage is a heavily regulated industry. Government agencies in charge of protecting the public’s health and retailers of food products who want to make sure that they are selling clean and fresh products have a keen interest in making sure that the storage and distribution of food occurs in a safe and clean manner. The level of cleanliness required at the facility will vary depending on the type of food being distributed, the store or agency buying the food, and the number cleaning staff available on site providing cleaning services. Since most of the cleaning needs to be done outside normal hours of operation, many facilities find that hiring a professional janitorial company is beneficial from both a management and effectiveness standpoint. Managing employees during the late evening and early morning hours can prove to be a headache that most companies can do without. Also, the expertise needed to sanitize walls, rack and storage bins is better left to the janitorial company whose sole purpose is to make sure the facility meets the standards set forth by facilities management. What appears to be a simple and easy process can become an ongoing and continuous problem when in-house cleaning personnel struggle night in and night out to meet standards aimed at preventing the spread of bacteria in a food storage facility. With so much at risk, it makes sense more often than not to outsource the cleaning responsibilities to an experienced janitorial company.
