Industrial Dusting

Proudly Serving Los Angeles And The Surrounding Areas

Maintaining a clean and safe work environment is top priority for Warehouse Managers. Not only for the well-being of employees but also for the preservation of stored goods. One often-overlooked aspect of warehouse maintenance is industrial high dusting; the process of cleaning and removing dust and debris from high surfaces such as rafters, pipes, and light fixtures. Industrial dusting is crucial for preventing dust buildup, which can lead to poor air quality, health issues, and fire hazards.

Industrial high dusting plays a vital role in ensuring that warehouses remain clean and compliant with safety regulations. This article explores the significance of high dusting services in warehouses, highlighting their benefits and providing insights into choosing the right industrial dusting contractor.

Challenges of High Dusting in Warehouses:

The typical areas in manufacturing plants that accumulate dust are high ledges, overhead trusses, rafters, piping, ducts, vents, and light fixtures. Basically anything out-of-reach is neglected by a janitorial staff ill equipped for high access work.

Another challenge is to contain the dust. Plant managers need to prevent dust from falling on the conveyor system or packaging area. Dust containment is part of a professional high dusting project.

Lastly, high dusting needs to be done quickly, minimizing the overall downtime of plant operations.To sum it up, major challenges that industrial dusting contractors need to overcome include safety, dust containment, and project efficiency. 

Industrial Dusting Equipment & Techniques:

High dusting in industrial settings requires specialized equipment and techniques to effectively clean elevated surfaces and remove dust and debris. Common equipment used for high dusting includes extension poles, microfiber cloths, dusting wands, high-reach vacuums, scissor lifts, rope access kits, PPE, and protection tarps. These tools are designed to reach high surfaces safely and efficiently, allowing workers to remove dust without the need for ladders or scaffolding. 

In addition to equipment, various techniques are employed to ensure thorough cleaning, such as using a systematic approach to cover all surfaces, starting from the highest point and working downwards. High dusting techniques also include using fall protection equipment to work safely. Overall, high dusting equipment and techniques are essential for maintaining cleanliness, safety, and compliance in industrial environments.

From Employee Health to Product Quality:

Industrial dusting impacts everything from employee attendance to the final product. Poor air quality inside warehouses can lead to respiratory issues and allergies which may cause employees to call in sick. Dust can fall from above onto packaging areas affecting the quality of finished goods. Of course, companies can get fined if they are not compliant with industry standards. All of this can be avoided as long as high dusting is performed on a regular basis. 

Factors to Consider When Choosing a High Dusting Service Provider:

If you manage a warehouse that has high beams, pipes, and rafters it’s important to hire a company with difficult access capabilities for high dusting. A company trained with using scissors lifts, extension ladders, and industrial rope access. 

Ask if they employ certified rope access technicians. Industrial rope access is a work positioning system that gives workers the ability to access hard-to-reach areas safely using ropes and top anchors. The regulating bodies which certify rope access technicians are SPRAT & IRATA.
