Industrial Cleaning

AQS provides industrial cleaning across a wide range of industrial sectors. These include cement manufacturing, waste to energy plants, oil storage facilities, and pharmaceutical companies. As it is very important for facilities of every type to maintain a certain standard of cleanliness, we understand the need to provide industrial cleaning solutions that are at a high level. We can provide multiple above and below ground services.

Distinct from residential or general cleaning services, we understand that industrial cleaning requires a different kind of expertise to ensure that equipment like conveyor belts are cleaned properly, and that the correct cleaning chemicals are used on the right machinery. Failure to follow strict guidelines can have a negative impact on our customer’s business.

Industrial Cleaning Standards
AQS prides ourselves on really getting to know our customer’s industry and needs. That is why we follow strict processes that include collecting machinery cleaning manuals, and guidelines before our projects begin. This guarantees that we can carry out our industrial cleaning procedures safety and to our customer’s standards.

We can deliver industrial cleaning during production shutdown periods or as part of an integrated service and production team in live manufacturing environments. This can happen as part of a planned schedule or in emergency situations.

Decontamination and Decommissioning

AQS can undertake successful plant, area and equipment decommissioning and decontamination works. Our skilled workforce combined with our existing fleet of machinery and a diverse range of plant and equipment ensures the success of these projects.

Recently completed projects have included :

  • Decontamination and decommissioning of an activated carbon adsorption system. This was carried out in a pharmaceutical setting. All structural steel was stripped out and environmentally safe disposal of all wastes was provided.
  • The removal of excessive contaminated silt from a  large lagoon. The client was a beverage manufacturing site. Works were completed using using sludge pumps, long reach excavators and wastewater de-silting unit. A range of risk control mechanisms were installed to prevent re-contamination of the adjacent river and we worked with the Fisheries Board to protect a lamprey habitat.
  • Decontamination of a manufacturing site contaminated with hazardous wastes. All wastes generated in the project were packaged for specialist destruction. All  contaminated soils were identified and excavated for recovery.
  • Excavation and removal of hydrocarbon contaminated soils to defined finished excavation levels.
  • Removal and decontamination of hazardous pharmaceutical pipework, tanks and general processing equipment in an API manufacturing facility. Services included swab testing and analysis. This determined the proper recycling / disposal methods for these materials.

Considering the type of  projects outlined above our service scope extends considerably from our core service of drainage works and we are in  a position to quote for any type of works requiring decontamination and/or decommissioning.
