Dirty storage unit Warehouse cleaning can be a complex and overwhelming task. The COVID-19 pandemic and the shift in mindset from it have meant that storage facilities and warehouses have to be extremely particular about cleanliness and hygiene inside the warehouse. Customers today have a keen eye on everything and want to make sure their goods are saved in a clean storage facility that comes with all the required sanitization and cleaning services.
As a business owner with a warehouse of your own, you should make sure that the warehouse is maintained and cleaned regularly. Cleaning does matter, and without the right cleaning services, your warehouse will not be able to stand up against the competition in the market.
Warehouse and other storage facilities are frequented with storage traffic throughout the day, which is why it can be hard for them to store items at times. Warehouse maintenance is essential for operations and businesses today.
In this article, we take a look at the few steps you should follow for warehouse maintenance and cleaning in your facility. These tips and checklist will help ensure that your warehouse remains neat and tidy at all times.

Checklist for Cleaning your Warehouse 

Cleaning your warehouse should be a priority, especially if your business deals with raw materials and consumable goods. Pests and other insects roaming around the facility can cause damage to the goods and lead to mold and mildew among other detriments. 

All finished goods stored in your warehouse will directly be shipped to the end consumer, which is why it is highly necessary that you prioritize cleaning procedures and don’t let anything slip by. A cleaning checklist is the need of the hour today, and will help make things a lot easier for you. 

Obviously, our checklist on how to clean your warehouse will vary based on the frequency you follow for the maintenance process. We mention all details below to help make the process easier for you: 

Checklist for Daily Warehouse Cleaning 

Daly warehouse cleaning requires cleaning all high contact areas such as the equipment, the floor and the countertops. Daily sanitization is also necessary if you are dealing with consumable or perishable goods. 

The tips below will help you look after daily warehouse cleaning in a routine manner: 

  • Sweep or Vacuum the floors inside your warehouse on a daily basis.

  • Sanitize all surfaces you contact during the day including handles, switches, pallets, trolleys and crab bars. 
  • Empty all the waste baskets. 
  • Check how the shelves and storage areas are and whether they need repair work. 
  • Clean all bathrooms in the warehouse to negate the spread of bacteria and germs from the bathrooms. 
  • Scrub the toilets through a cleaning solution and a toilet brush. 
  • Mop all floors using a disinfectant solution. 
  • Refill all soaps, tissues and toilet papers frequently. 

Weekly Checklist for Warehouse Cleaning 

While some areas of the checklist are cleaned on a weekly basis, there are other areas that need to be cleaned on a daily basis. All areas that require maintenance, sanitization and weekly cleaning include: 

  • Reorganize all your pallets and shelves. 
  • Check supplies and restock them where needed. 
  • Clear the dust from light fixtures, grab bars and high ceiling areas. 
  • Wipe down all windows and curtains. 
  • Polish all the glass fixtures including glass windows, doors and partitions. 
  • Check the condition of the fire escapes, emergency exits and extinguishers.

  • Deep clean all floors on a monthly basis and ensure shampoo carpeting. 
  • Change all upholstery covers. 
  • Scrub all the walls and clean them. 
  • Avail full pest control services. 
  • Check drains and sinks and clear them of all signs of mold and mildew.

Cleaning Tips to Remember 

Cleaning your warehouse can be an arduous process. However, there are certain tips you can follow to make sure the area is cleaned regularly and doesn’t have any leftover spillages. The cleaning checklist you can follow on a daily basis will help you cover a number of important things. Besides the main points, you can follow the tips below for full coverage: 

  • Wipe away all spillages on the floor, upholstery and walls. 
  • Apply floor coating after every two months. 
  • Replace all dead light fixtures. 
  • Clean up the clutter regularly. 
  • Improve air quality in the warehouse through sanitization measures.
