All warehouse managers know the importance of keeping your warehouse clean. From the conveyor belts to the mezzanine floor, keeping the warehouse clean is an important team effort. One of the often overlooked areas in a warehouse is your industrial storage racks. It’s just as important to keep these clean as any other area of the warehouse!
Advantages of Clean Storage Racks
- Helps recover and prevent lost products.
- Keeps your shelves organized for faster picking.
- Creates a safer warehouse environment.
- Lowers the instances of accidents and injury on the job.
- Lengthen the lifespan of your equipment.
How to Clean Industrial Storage Racks
Fortunately, industrial storage racks don’t require much more than good organizational skills and systems put into place to keep them clean. The primary objective of cleaning your industrial storage racks should be to organize the products on each shelf so they are easy to grab for picking and count for inventory. Inventory is actually a great time for cleaning the shelves; double up on the job by having your counters take a few minutes to organize and wipe down the shelves before they move on with the count. A damp rag and some spray cleaner are perfect for cleaning most shelves. Removing sticky substances can help prevent damage, too.
