Massive Warehouse Cleaning
A few weeks ago, our team completed a 75,000 square foot general cleaning job. The current owner of the building was looking to sell but was unable to do so due to the amount of black carbon dust in the building. It seemed to cover every inch of the building. It didn’t seem to matter if you were in the main office or out in the warehouse, the thickness of the dust remained the same.
In the warehouse portion of the building, we had to rent a Zamboni to clean the floor due to the dust and the surface area being covered. To see a difference in the flooring, we had to clean the floor 2-3 times. Thank goodness for the Zamboni! On the other side of the warehouse, there were 30+ racks that needed to be wiped down and the floor cleaned under. It took us several days to complete these tasks, but the warehouse looks amazing!
On the inside of the building, the carpets were covered in dirt and dust. Due to foot traffic, it was all stomped into the ground. The walls, lights and walls were all covered in carbon dust and needed to be cleaned prior to the floors being done. The bathrooms were destroyed and blackened with carbon dust, more so than any other room in the building. The kitchen was neglected, and every inch of the cupboards and appliances needed to be cleaned. Using SERVPRO cleaning products and a lot of arm muscle, the office portion is now sparkling!
In the end, we were able to clean this warehouse in just over 2 weeks. The owner will hopefully have no problems selling with warehouse and the new owners will be able to move in with confidence!
