Dust, dirt, grease, and other materials are common to find in the rafters and ceilings of many manufacturing and production facilities.
Why should you have your rafters and high ceilings cleaned?
- Vibrations in the facility can shake built up dust loose, causing it to contaminate the production below.
- Piles of dust and dirt can become breeding grounds for mites, mold, bacteria, viruses, and other pollutants.
- Some dusts can become a fire hazard when built up on high surface areas. Numerous explosions have occurred when built up dust created an explosive dust cloud.
- OSHA & the NFPA can give violations and fines for having unsafe levels on dust on ceilings and rafters.
- Chunks of this collected debris can enter the ventilation and clog up the HVAC system.
- Can cause odors and break down the surface it’s on, causing rust or rot.
- Aesthetic reasons, visible dirt collected on surfaces can make a workplace unattractive.
- To prepare surfaces for painting or other maintenance work.
- Creates poor indoor air quality, which according to the EPA is a leading environmental threat and cause of airborne sickness.
