Facility surface cleaning28 September 2023
Hygiene-sensitive surfaces must be clean. That is clear. Because if dirt and contamination are not cleaned carefully, viruses and bacteria can remain on the surfaces for days and pose a danger. The cleaning and disinfection of surfaces are therefore essential. This is the only way to reduce the spread of viruses and bacteria.
Surface cleaning in industry is a combination of preventive measures, the selection of cleaning agents suitable for the material, the design of individual cleaning systems and the monitoring of cleaning success. Safe facility cleaning is always integrated into the production processes.
Surface is not just surface. Some materials encourage the proliferation of viruses and bacteria. Others reduce their spread – like stainless steel. The material prevents surfaces from being contaminated with germs in three ways. The smooth surface makes it difficult for germs to settle. In addition, the surface can be cleaned thoroughly, even after frequent cleaning, the surface structure hardly changes, and the ions of the chrome-nickel surface have an antibacterial effect. For this reason, the PHT Group generally uses stainless steel in its devices and systems.
But even with floors and walls, care should be taken to ensure that the surfaces are easy to clean and dry quickly. Other preventative measures include sole and boot cleaning devices. They remove the dirt with rotating brushes. At the same time, they disinfect the soles and uppers of the shoes.
On good ground
Dirt on shoes and boots is unavoidable in everyday work. What is the most efficient and safest way to clean floors?
Floor drainage systems ensure that floors in the food industry are easy to clean. They are constructed in such a way that large amounts of water do not accumulate on the floors. Water is always a breeding ground for germs. In particular, the drainage area of cleaning machines is responsible for hygiene. The design of the floor drainage should be tailored to your operational circumstances. The experts of the PHT Group will be happy to advise you.

The foam does it
The most efficient way to clean and disinfect hygiene-sensitive surfaces is with an innovative low-pressure foam cleaning system. A single system takes care of all cleaning tasks. Rinsing, foam and cleaning nozzles ensure a high level of hygiene. They can be individually adapted to the cleaning situation and the surface. The big advantages are the quick application, the short water rinsing times, the individually adjustable water pressure and the avoidance of recontamination, since hardly any aerosols are produced. The generation of thermal energy is cheap. Another argument for a low-pressure foam cleaning system in times of high energy prices.
The low-pressure foam cleaning systems from PHT have a modular structure. You can use it to clean different surfaces such as walls and floors. Either a main station or a booster system serves as the basis. The systems are individually tailored to your needs. This applies to both the working pressure, which ranges from 5 to 25 bar, and the media used. Acids and bases can be used. Appropriate chemical containers can be integrated into the main and satellite stations for both media. Our experts will be happy to advise you on which pressure and which cleaning agents are most suitable for your application.
