Laboratory Commercial Cleaning
Updated: Feb 18, 2019
What adjectives come to mind when you think of laboratories? Chances are words like clean, controlled, and pristine will be in the top few because of the importance of cleanliness and organization for smooth operations. In contrast to other commercial businesses like office spaces, laboratories are highly-controlled environments where research, development, or medical procedures can be performed. Equipment and materials used inside these controlled rooms are often extremely sensitive and require maintenance and cleaning from highly-trained individuals.
No matter what type of laboratory you have, the cleanliness of your facility can greatly affect the safety and integrity of the work being done. Due to powerful and potentially harmful products used, including pathogens and strong chemicals, laboratories have much higher standards and strict guidelines when it comes to health and safety. Surfaces and floors with chemical residue and dust and debris left near hot equipment can lead to potentially dangerous situations. Hiring a commercial cleaning company like New England Cleaning Services, Inc. allows you to protect not only the safety and health of workers from these hazardous circumstances but also the processes that occur inside of your laboratory.
We offer a variety of services for the growing needs of laboratories:
Life science facility cleaning: Life science facilities, which can be part of an educational institution or its own entity, use highly controlled environments that need careful cleaning. We use advanced equipment and techniques and comply with all necessary health and safety standard guidelines.
ESD/Anti-static floor refinishing: Many laboratories require specialized flooring that dissipates electrostatic discharge to eliminate the potential to harm sensitive electronic components. Proper cleaning and maintenance of these floors are vital in protecting valuable manufactured products and equipment.
Terminal cleaning: Reducing the spread of infection is an important part of maintaining a controlled environment, especially for laboratories that handle pathogens and other harmful substances. Professional commercial cleaning businesses understand the various standards and techniques that need to be used to protect the health of everyone in the laboratory.
Bio-waste handling: Our staff is highly trained and knowledgeable about the procedures involved with disposing of biowastes and biohazardous materials. (They practice with safety and compliance with strict OSHA and health regulations in mind.)
Water damage restoration: Laboratories can be subject to unexpected emergencies like water damage. Moisture can lead to negative consequences for the processes, equipment, and products in the lab, so fast and effective cleanup and restoration are important.
Clean room decontamination: Clean rooms are unique environments that require complete microbiological control, which is achieved through personal protective equipment, HVAC systems, specialized machinery, and especially proper cleaning and disinfecting techniques. They are classified by how much airborne particulate of specific sizes is allowed per cubic meter, ranging from the “cleanest” Class 1 to the “dirtiest” Class 100,000. NECS can handle clean rooms of Class 1 to 100,000.
Hiring a certified commercial cleaning company like New England Cleaning Services, Inc. means that you can protect your valuable products, time and eliminate the stresses associated with the proper maintenance of your clean environments. NECS offers professional, fully-trained cleaning staff that are trained to handle specialized equipment and products and work in compliance with OSHA and other health regulations.
