How far do you go with your master cleaning schedule when it comes to the warehouse areas (we produce food packaging, no food)?


specifically when it comes to the racks and overhead beams and ductwork.  I get this is important in the manufacturing area where product is open, but everything is bagged and boxed in the warehouse.

Hitting the beams/ductwork can be less frequent, based on the risk and nature of your facility. You have to take a look at the state of things and ask: what's a reasonable cleaning schedule that will keep dust/debris from accumulating? A facility in a windy rural desert location may see more dust accumulation than one in an urban coastal zone. I used to work an Arizona and it's surprising all the places that dust can end up when you open the bay doors.


I would say you do need to clean these hard-to-reach areas, because the dust accumulation doesn't make for a tidy warehouse. The frequency is what you get to decide (and justify).

Isn't there a song called..."please baby. go all the way."


Yeah, something here, but you decide the frequency for those hard to do areas- but in general you want a filly cleaned environment.
