    Frequently asked questions

    How soon should I start planning my industrial cleaning programme?

    The earlier we can become involved, the better we can work to your timetable. For example, we know maintenance in the manufacturing sector often takes place during periods such as the summer or Christmas holidays when production lines stop for a limited time. By talking to us in advance, we can ensure we meet your needs at a time that suits you and creates minimum disruption for the business. We take a very flexible approach and you can always call us to discuss your ideas.

    How quickly can you respond to an emergency?

    We offer a fast emergency response service with advice from an expert over the phone to help mitigate the immediate problem, followed by on-site attendance, clean-up and disposal.


    Depending on the location and circumstances, we would normally aim to be on-site within two hours. Our priorities will always be safety and containment of the problem and we do everything we can to minimise disruption, allowing our customers to resume operations as soon as it is possible to do so.

    Do I need to put a ‘what if’ disaster plan in place?

    Ideally yes. Whether it is an accident, incident or a planned event, such as a relocation of facilities; the key to managing the activity successfully is good planning.


    We work closely with our customers to understand potential issues and plan for worse case scenarios.


    For example, a simple planning meeting can help establish issues such as:


    • undertaking a formal risk assessment
    • identifying which chemicals and other hazardous wastes are present on-site
    • ensuring easy access to relevant areas and/or storage cupboards
    • making sure all containers and/or hazardous waste is located and clearly identified
    • understanding if existing emergency procedures are in place


    Putting the basics such as this information in place early provides both peace of mind and secures valuable time in the event of disaster.

    What are some of the industrial cleaning projects you’ve worked on?

    Access can often be an issue – we worked on one project where the laboratory facilities were on the fourth floor of a building with no lift and very narrow stairs, so we had to be very clever in the way we managed the arrival of our equipment.


    High-level cleaning brings its own challenges, especially when you are carrying cleaning equipment and cameras, but our expert teams are very experienced and will always find a way to succeed.


    For another industrial customer, we carry out annual cleaning of giant vessels used for mixing bitumen, rubbers and oils. Over time, these materials can accumulate on the sides, reducing capacity and efficiency of the motor and mixing blades. We undertake this very complex cleaning task in a two-day period over the Christmas shutdown, ensuring business continuity is unaffected.

    Do you only work with large companies?

    No, we work for a range of customers, from large commercial organisations through to spas and private customers who may wish to have swimming pools or sculptures cleaned.


    Recently, we undertook a restoration project for a large hotel which required its pool and spa area to be deep cleaned to remove all traces of limescale deposits, legacy scum, mould and mildew.

    How do you dispose of waste products and what paperwork is provided?

    We offer a complete hazardous waste classification, packaging and disposal service. This includes the indexing, categorisation and packaged of all chemicals and other waste products into United Nations (UN) approved packaging, meeting the requirements for specialist transportation and disposal.


    All tanker drivers are fully ADR trained and licensed to carry Dangerous Goods by Road. This enables Grundon to transport a range of hazardous liquid wastes and materials for treatment at our own facilities, which include a Hazardous Waste Transfer Station.


    We provide all the necessary certification which shows the work has been carried out to meet all legislation and compliant regulations.

    Are your services expensive?

    The most important element of these difficult and challenging projects is the safety of employees (our and yours), together with compliance and security. We make these issues a priority and, while there may be companies which offer reduced prices, if you choose to work with us it will be safe in the knowledge you have chosen a team which achieves outstanding results, has 40+ years’ of experience and an unblemished safety record.


    We also work hard to bring innovative new ideas and technology to market, such as our mercury detector and vacuum, which dramatically reduces the time involved in mercury clean-up operations and therefore helps keep costs down.
