Warehouse maintenance in the winter

Following a productive summer and fall of outdoor maintenance, the move inside for the colder months of the year presents an opportunity to do some deep cleaning in your factory or warehouse. Buildup from general operations throughout the year is unavoidable, both inside and outside of the building.

Removing dirt, grime, chipping paint, and corrosion from your walls and facades during the winter keeps you on top of the previous year’s mess and ahead of spring cleaning in preparation for summer, all while maintaining your shop in a high-quality condition that is up to code.

Types of Restorations for Winter

Surface Restorations

Maintaining your space adds to efficiency and productivity all around:

  • There are fewer problems in operations when spaces are clean and clear.
  • Property managers save on costs of repairs from fewer equipment breakdowns.
  • Up-to-code best practices decrease liability concerns and labor costs.

When monitoring surfaces for corrosion and degradation, the first step towards prevention is keeping the material clean and using a protective coating when possible, when you notice red, orange, black, or white specs or deposits, the beginnings of corrosion, blast cleaning will help remove those kernels and keep them from spreading.

Stone, brick, and other masonry surfaces are susceptible to degradation over time, especially when exposed to outdoor elements. Stone surfaces may need repair as they chip and wear down; sandblasting to clean the area is an essential step before applying new mortar, cement, or other restoration materials.

In addition to preventing corrosion and degradation, some materials may need a deep cleaning to remove old paint, oil stains, loose rust, and built-up dirt. When buildup remains on a surface, whether steel or wood, degradation is more likely to occur than if it’s cleaned regularly.
