Tips for Cleaning Warehouses

Some simple tips for cleaning any warehouse space include:

1. Create a Cleaning Plan

Consider creating a cleaning plan that assigns different employees the responsibility of keeping certain areas clean, based on their roles. It is also a good idea to encourage team members to clean as they go to prevent messes from building up.

2. Keep Floors Clean & Cleared

One of the easiest ways to prevent common workplace injuries is to ensure that the floors are kept clean and clutter free. Make sure that employees are putting away materials and equipment that are not being currently used to help keep floors as clean as possible.

3. Use Shelves to Maximize Space

No matter what type of warehouse you are working in, shelves provide a simple solution for keeping spaces organized and running smoothly. Shelving can be used to maximize storage space, which can help keep floors clear and make it easier to move equipment around.

4. Keep Cleaning Supplies & Equipment in Stock

Having cleaning supplies and equipment readily available is the first step in ensuring that your employees are actually using them. Make sure to have equipment, such as mops and buckets ready for cleaning up spills, and cleaning supplies like disinfectants and paper towels on hand.

5. Ensure Waste Bins are Easily Accessible

Providing recycling and garbage bins throughout the warehouse will help encourage employees to properly dispose of waste in the workplace. Make sure to clearly label the bins, so that employees know which types of materials to place in them, such as paper, wood, glass, and metal. It is also important to ensure that all waste bins are emptied on a regular basis to prevent them from overflowing.
