Expert cleaning on all surfaces. Machinery. Capital goods. Auxiliary production installations. These areas require specific, customised cleaning techniques and the tasks can only be carried out by exclusively prepared teams.
Normal cleaning procedures will not clean all spaces, parts or components. Technical cleaning tasks require machinery to be moved or some parts to be dismantled. Teams of experts are therefore needed, with professionals working in coordination with the customer’s technical service staff.

Tot Net offers cleaning services for industrial units and specific areas of them, such as:

Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know

Technical cleaning is the cleaning of machinery, capital goods and industrial installations in addition to ordinary cleaning. It is necessary for this type of cleaning to be carried out together with the customer’s technical services.

Normally, this type of cleaning is carried out on conveyor lines, machinery, paint booths, ventilation circuits, condensers or electrical cabinets.

Buying industrial cleaning and hygiene products is very easy, if you do it through Tot Net. We have a complete line of hygiene products with delivery service included for all those customers who have contracted a maintenance service as well as for those who only need the supply of these products.

All the products supplied are validated by quality and approval departments and have a technical and safety data sheet.

The cleaning of industrial equipment can be carried out using different techniques such as the use of pressurised water, foam cleaning, dry steam cleaning, immersion cleaning or cleaning in place (when the machinery to be cleaned is large and cannot be dismantled).

These types of cleaning must be carried out using specific machines such as professional hoovers, sweepers or injection and extraction cleaning machines.

One of the best times for cleaning industrial machinery is the summer, when many companies slow down or even stop production.

This makes it much easier to carry out thorough cleaning – especially on ceilings and ventilation grilles, places where microorganisms and bacteria can proliferate. By cleaning the machinery and the spaces in which it is located, we obtain more light and insect-free spaces.

To calculate the price of the cleaning of industrial warehouses, Tot-Net’s technical department visits the facilities beforehand and then determines which service is the most appropriate for the client’s needs based on the peculiarities of their activity, the square metres of their surface area and the frequency with which they need the service. This is an analysis in which our Quality department also has a great deal to contribute.

In the event that the client already has a cleaning service in place, Tot Net can carry out an audit and assess whether it meets the requirements of their sector, offering them a quote that allows them to reduce costs without affecting the quality of the service or improving it.

Through the standardisation of cleaning systems and investment in R+D+I, Tot Net has developed its own method that makes it possible to provide a tailor-made service for each client, reducing costs in general terms by between 7% and 10%. It is the result of a study of data collected since 2011 and seeks to achieve maximum efficiency. As all its employees work in the same way, they can apply their knowledge to any position within their department, so that a possible circumstantial absence does not alter the service when the usual professional is replaced.

A large industrial area tends to accumulate a lot of dirt depending on the material that is stored or manufactured in it. When hiring a cleaning company for industrial warehouses, we must take into account multiple factors. These are the ones that, in the opinion of Neteges Tot Net, with more than 50 years of experience in the sector, guarantee the most reliable professional service:

1.- The tasks to be carried out: the peculiarities of each sector determine the type of cleaning to be carried out in each industrial building. Depending on the activity that is normally carried out there, the state and size of the installations, the equipment they have and the machinery used inside, their maintenance will have different requirements. There will be a certain number of hours and specialised training associated with it (e.g. for work at height on ceilings, ventilation systems or glazing). In addition, we will need to establish how often it is advisable to carry out ordinary cleaning and whether in some cases a so-called technical cleaning is necessary, requiring the dismantling of internal machinery. We must also determine whether, in addition to cleaning and degreasing, it is necessary to disinfect the space.

2.- Compliance with current regulations: Professional cleaning companies must be legally registered and have civil liability insurance to cover any unforeseen event. Their workers must be insured and be aware of how to act at their work station in accordance with the company’s occupational risk prevention plan. In addition, there are a series of certificates whose possession guarantees a good choice, such as the Quality Management System Certificate, by which in this case a cleaning company proves that it complies with the UNE-EN ISO9001:2008 standard.

Chemical products and machinery to be used: On many occasions, professional cleaning must be carried out with a specific chemical product (depending on the type of waste to be removed, which determines whether we must use acid, alkaline or neutral detergents, with different PH, degreasers, dielectric cleaners, release agents, etc.) and its level of toxicity must be taken into account so as not to put people’s health at risk. The person in charge of cleaning must assess which is the best option and manage a range of approved professional products that the client can also choose from (for example, if he/she wants them to be environmentally friendly). In addition, they must know which machines to use in each case so that the sanitisation is optimal without damaging the surfaces (rotary polishers, pressure washers, lifts for cleaning ceilings and glass, etc.).

4.- The experience of the professionals and their level of training: When the experience of a team of workers is extensive, this is reflected in the results. A good team of cleaning professionals usually receives continuous training in order to keep abreast of market needs, operating protocols and regulations to be followed. In this sense, more and more companies are incorporating the so-called corporate university into their work system to manage the knowledge of their workers. Tot Net is one of them.

5.- That a price offer does not mean a worse quality of service: It is always advisable to compare prices, and as clients we tend to look for the best offer of all, but the quality of the service should be what finally makes us decide which company to choose when it comes to cleaning, since the image of a company and the health of those who share its work space depend a lot on the hygiene conditions that exist.

Tot Net’s technical department is at your disposal to provide you with a no-obligation quote after assessing your facilities.

 

Industrial cleaning requires the use of suitable machinery to help us carry out this task as quickly and comfortably as possible.

For this we can count on 3 different types of machinery:

       Sweeping machines. Especially used for outdoor spaces where they are used to collect dirt from pavements, roads and pavements.
     Scrubbing machines. These are multi-functional machines that can sweep, mop and dry the floor in a single pass. Some can be driven from a seat and others must be operated on foot. Depending on the size of the space to be cleaned, they have a larger or smaller water and detergent tank.
     Professional hoovers. Capable of vacuuming and absorbing liquids, they are especially designed for deep cleaning or end-of-job cleaning in a factory.
      Injection-extraction machines. Their main purpose is to clean upholstery, carpets and rugs by injecting cleaning foam into the fabrics. The machine then absorbs the foam and leaves the upholstery spotless.
For more information about the type of machinery used for industrial cleaning in Barcelona, do not hesitate to contact the Neteges Tot Net team.

There are several techniques, some of them with a certain degree of complexity:

      Manual and in-situ cleaning. This type of cleaning is carried out with the help of tools such as brushes, mops, scouring pads and rags, and is intended for cleaning bathrooms or offices. Sometimes it is necessary to use this technique to clean very large machinery that cannot be dismantled in pieces.
      Use of pressurised water. Projection of a powerful jet of water onto the surface or part to be cleaned. It must be carried out in a suitable space, either outdoors or in a room with drains.
     Dry steam cleaning. The steam that is applied contains 5 % water and is extremely useful for disinfecting and deep cleaning in an environmentally friendly way. Dry steam cleaning should be carried out by a professional who is suitably protected.
      Industrial immersion cleaning. Cleaning technique for cleaning small parts that can be carried out manually or with specific machinery. This type of cleaning is often combined with the use of ultrasound, which enhances it.
     Cleaning with foam. The foam should be applied to the surface to be cleaned and left to act for at least 20 minutes, then rinsed and the dirt removed.
Sandblasting.  Sandblasting is mainly used to clean facades. Sand is applied to the surface under pressure and the surface dirt is removed. This type of cleaning is particularly recommended when the walls are stained with smoke and grease. 

The advantages of good industrial cleaning in Barcelona include the following:

        Prevention of fines and penalties for poor hygiene.
        Correct functioning of machinery and ventilation and refrigeration systems.
        Greater healthiness and quality of the products produced – especially those related to the food industry.
        Better health of workers, as they are no longer exposed to risks or illnesses.
If you require effective industrial cleaning, do not hesitate to contact the Neteges Tot Net team.

Apart from the cleaning of floors, bathrooms, surfaces, laboratories or warehouses, industrial cleaning services in also include the following:

Water jet cleaning. Pressure washing is used for paint and lead removal. It is mainly used for large mastic and coating removal projects on vertical and horizontal surfaces.
Lead removal and abatement. Lead removal includes the use of chemicals to break down various coatings containing lead and lead derivatives.
Mercury spill clean-up. The removal of mercury vapour and its sources is used.
Mould removal. Certain types of mould can cause health problems for workers in the industry. Therefore, testing is necessary to ensure a containment area and to remove the mould properly.
Decontamination of chemical spills.
Industrial vacuuming of chemicals, metal shavings, debris, dirt and more.

Industrial cleaning services include compliance with a series of requirements established by the industry itself and the administration, as well as the appropriate means to guarantee the cleaning and sanitisation of laboratories, common areas, laboratories or air rooms.

For more information, do not hesitate to consult Tot Net’s service guarantees, which include its own quality system.

The industrial cleaning services offered by Tot Net focus on the cleaning of the chemical and pharmaceutical industry and the food industry.

We are talking about highly specialised services in which it is essential to comply with previously established requirements in cleaning and disinfection programmes, and for which Tot Net’s professional teams are trained – especially in taking samples and in bacteriological monitoring and control analyses, considered to be fundamental elements in this type of service.

The technical industrial cleaning of ventilation systems is absolutely essential, as these are spaces in which the proliferation of microorganisms is high. This means that the people who breathe this air can be affected in terms of health and productivity.

This is why it is necessary to carry out a routine inspection of indoor environmental quality, both in public premises and in the food industry, following the protocols established by the RITE 2018 regulations.

Yes, Tot-Net has a training programme for cleaners whose main objective is to teach all the keys to professional cleaning in order to carry it out better and safely.

This training is provided on an ongoing basis in order to improve the environmental sustainability of its activities and processes; a fact that has led it to be audited by AENOR and to be a pioneer in a pioneering methodology in the cleaning sector.

Yes, there are technical cleaning and sanitisation methods that companies such as Tot Net apply to improve the standardisation of work processes and cleaning systems. In the case of Tot Net, and thanks to the company’s investment in R+D+I, a standardised method is generated that manages to cover all the cleaning and sanitisation needs required by clients.

In addition, the method manages to reduce the cost in the client’s annual budgets by between 7 and 10 %. It should be noted that thanks to the standard cleaning process applied by Tot Net, the work carried out by the staff is much more efficient and any worker is able to carry out their work regardless of their position.

Yes, these are technical services based on the study of new methodologies and machinery for cleaning and the optimisation of these services.

Under the umbrella of “Facility Services”, Tot-Net offers its clients the option of outsourcing:

       Catering services with personalised treatment and menus for groups and special events.
       Technical services for the maintenance of facilities and light or heavy machinery.
     Auxiliary services such as concierge services, mail delivery or selective waste treatment. 

To request an estimate for a technical cleaning service, it is necessary to contact Tot Net through our contact form or by telephone. From here, the Technical Department, together with the Quality and R+D+I departments, will carry out an analysis of the facilities and the peculiarities of the sector to which the company requesting the quote belongs in order to determine the service that best suits the company’s needs.

In addition, an audit of the current cleaning services will also be carried out, if available, to determine whether the service received is adequate for your needs.

The cleaning of warehouses carried out by Tot Net for its clients consists of the application of innovative dust suction systems, as well as the use of special machinery for sweeping and scrubbing.

In the case of warehouses belonging to the pharmaceutical industry, the corresponding protocol for this type of case is applied.

Four steps are necessary for cleaning industrial metal roller shutters:

         Cleaning of the dust on the door surface, as well as grease and accumulated dirt. To do this, we recommend the use of a neutral soap applied with a cloth or sponge.
         Once the soap has been applied and the surface of the door is clean, rinse the remains with water – but never with pressurised water as this could damage the door.
         Dry with a cloth.
     If you wish to give the door a shine, apply a coat of wax.

What does Tot Net’s industrial warehouse cleaning consist of? The dirt that is normally generated in industry requires efficient industrial warehouse cleaning in order to not only keep the surfaces as clean as possible, but also to ensure the safety and health of all those who work on them.

Consequently, tasks such as degreasing and disinfection become essential.

Yes, Tot-Net is certified for industrial cleaning in Barcelona and is accredited by AENOR. In addition, its quality system is based on the ISO 9001 standard and its environmental system is based on the ISO 14001 standard.

Likewise, in terms of occupational risk prevention and health surveillance, the system applied by Tot Net is subject to the OHSAS 18001 standard.

Several techniques can be used in the cleaning of industrial equipment, such as manual cleaning, the use of pressurised water, dry steam cleaning, soaking or immersion cleaning, foam or sand blasting, and cleaning in situ – especially indicated for the cleaning of large industrial machinery that cannot be dismantled.

In order to carry out this type of cleaning, it is necessary to use specific machinery such as sweepers, professional hoovers, or injection and extraction cleaning machines.

The main differences between disinfection and sterilisation are listed below:

– The main objective of sterilisation is the destruction of any microbial life. An example of a sterilisation process would be applied to surgical instruments.

– Disinfection, on the other hand, is a process during which much of the microbial life is destroyed or attempts are made to inhibit the harmful effects of microbes on humans. Disinfection, for example, occurs when we clean a toilet.

– However, disinfectants cannot kill spores – something that is possible with sterilisation.

– With disinfection, we reach an ‘adequate’ level of cleanliness, whereas with sterilisation, the level is ‘extreme’.

– Finally, the time required for a sterilisation process is much longer than for a disinfection process.

At Tot-Net we believe that the best time of the year for cleaning industrial buildings and machinery is the summer, a time when most companies are on holiday.

In this way, cleaning and disinfection can be carried out thoroughly, especially on ceilings where microorganisms tend to proliferate in ventilation grilles, and thus obtain brighter and insect-free spaces.
