Ideal has the expertise to offer a range of factory and plant maintenance cleaning services. These services can be provided as a one-off when required by our mobile teams of specifically trained Industrial Operatives, during maintenance shutdowns or breakdowns. Alternatively, we can provide services on a regular basis as part of your overall cleaning and maintenance programme by dedicated full time on site operatives.

We have a record of delivering works to tight deadlines, particularly important for production line cleaning and shutdowns when downtime must be limited. The works are fully managed, planned and undertaken in line with our robust Method Statements and Risk Assessment. Photographic reports can be supplied too.

Ideal quickly moved to improve cleaning standards, operatives uniform standards, PPE and safety standards and documentation. The cleaning team are now smarter and more responsive, management efficiency is improved and new and better working practices are being adopted daily.

Can you give me a quote over the phone or by email?

We can – but this would only be an ‘indicative quote’ or estimate and would be subject to an actual site survey by one of our Field Sales representatives.

A full site survey is the best way to accurately quote for your cleaning needs and allows us the opportunity to discuss your requirements with you in detail.

Will cleaning equipment and materials be included in the contract price?

Yes – Ideal’s pricing includes the supply and maintenance of all the necessary; equipment, materials and chemicals required by the cleaning operatives to fully perform their duties.

It does not include ‘Consumables’ – by which we mean things like Paper Towels, Liquid Soap, Toilet Rolls and Refuse Sacks. These are available from Ideal but are separate from the main contract price.
