With a range of specialist cleaning services that go beyond the everyday, REACT can meet all the cleaning needs of FM businesses.
Facilities management companies (FMs) operate across the UK economy. Given the range of industries in which they operate, there is a range of cleaning services that they need. And given their business models, it makes sense for them to outsource to cleaning specialists. The cleaning teams of FM companies fully controlled by REACT are available 24/7, on a contractual or ad hoc basis. Whatever the task, we offer good value for money and proven expertise. In this blog, we feature nine of the top FM business cleaning services we offer that go beyond the everyday. Our message to FM companies is clear: you run the facilities, we clean them.
1. Cleaning of Atex explosive environments
The importance of cleaning up Atex explosive environments is sometimes overlooked. Yet an accumulation of combustible dust has the potential to cause deadly explosions. Highly qualified REACT, Atex cleaning specialist teams wear anti-static clothing to comply with regulations. All equipment intended for use in explosive atmospheres is classified by zone and Atex approved, whether it is high pressure cleaners, vacuum cleaners or pneumatic jet cleaners.
2. Cleaning of depots and warehouses
REACT provides the highest cleanliness standards for all areas of depots, warehouses and loading docks. There are many different areas that require regular and ad hoc cleaning. Depot soils require specialized treatment for heavy soiling, including oil, engine fluids and other spills. And we will not neglect the cleaning of public car parks, to preserve the image of the company and a safe working environment.
3. High level cleaning and IRATA rope access
Many commercial and industrial buildings have high ceilings, which means interior walls and corners are difficult to clean. And outside of those same buildings, gutters can be just as difficult to keep clean. REACT has the expertise to work at heights using elevating work platforms and other suitable equipment. We also have specialists Agents trained by IRATA for rope access cleaning of taller buildings, by deploying a proven rope access system that has an excellent safety record.
4. Cleaning floors and carpets
REACT provides a range of specialists carpet and floor cleaning services. We can work on a localized area or an entire floor area, and we offer regular clean-up or spill response. For carpets, we focus on three cleaning methods: hot water extraction cleaning (steam cleaning), foam encapsulation and dry cleaning (compound cleaning). We will adopt the system that suits our customers; for example, we recommend compound cleaning for commercial spaces that need to operate 24/7, as disruption during cleaning is minimal.
5. Data room cleaning
FM companies must avoid computer failures and make sure that computers and other hardware are not compromised by dust and dirt, especially in data rooms. The REACT team of professionals know how to clean hard-to-reach places that are sensitive to dust accumulation. Whether cleaning surfaces or cleaning the floor plenum, avoiding clogged circuits is essential. Our cleaners prevent contamination from building up in a data room. They are also responsible for not introducing contaminants into a room by using the correct PPE.
6. Emergency clean-up: fire, flood, spill
From time to time, commercial and residential premises can be damaged by catastrophic events. Whether it be fire and smoke, flooding or sewage discharge, it is essential to act quickly. REACT provides a deep cleaning in all properties affected by such problems. When we deal with fire and smoke damage, we are dealing with soot and trapped odors, as well as water and chemical damage when fighting fires. And our teams are available to provide a fast and efficient sewage and flood cleaning service. After drying the premises, we use advanced materials to clean and disinfect the affected areas, and we will save furniture and fixtures as much as possible.
7. Pest management
Vermin take advantage of empty properties to find shelter, especially during the winter months. Even small amounts of food left on a property can attract rodents and insects through vulnerable entry points, while birds can also take up residence. Pigeon guano and other bird droppings are harmful to human health and are corrosive. REACT’s canceled properties clearance service may deal with the consequences of any infestation. And we can also provide solutions to prevent birds from congregating in large numbers on buildings, thus preventing future accumulation of bird droppings.
