For business growth, maintaining the cleanliness of a warehouse is crucial. Also, an organized storeroom is more conducive to employees’ productivity. Most importantly, it helps reduce safety risks and incidents that could lead to injury in the workplace. For operators of warehouses of all shapes and sizes, maintaining a clean and organized site is one of the biggest challenges. Here are some tips on how to keep your warehouse clean and safe.
Maintain a Checklist
- Have a master list of the cleaning tasks you need to regularly address and assign them to employees or a cleaning service accordingly.
Keep the Inventory Organized
- Even if your janitorial service provider keeps the warehouse clean, it’s essential to keep shelves and aisles orderly to maximize space. Keeping shelves neat will also ensure that no old or expired products will be forgotten and left accumulating dust.
Stock Up on Approved Cleaning Supplies
- Tidying up in the warehouse is a must. Cleaning supplies should be easily accessible to encourage employees to clean as they go. Keep a closet stocked with the necessary supplies, such as brooms, dustpans, mops, buckets, trash bags, cleaning towels, rubber gloves, disinfectant wipes, and surface cleaners. And during this time of COVID-19, the most effective cleaning products are cleaning liquids containing at least 70 percent alcohol or EPA-registered disinfectants.
