3 Problems an Industrial Wet Dry Vacuum Helps Solve

The cleaning needs are rarely straightforward in industrial spaces such as warehouses, machine shops, and fabrication facilities. The combination of machinery, workers, and debris can make it difficult for even the most experienced cleaning crew.

Besides cleaning everyday dirt and grime, cleaning staff must contend with more prominent problems that require specialized equipment. That’s where an industrial wet dry vacuum comes into play!

Intelligent Design Manufacturing offers a pair of commercial wet dry machines that can make quick work of common problems in industrial settings. Find out more about the problems our machines can help solve for your crew.

How Can an Industrial Wet Dry Vacuum Help?

An industrial wet dry vacuum is more than just your average cleaning machine. Made for tough jobs, it boasts a powerful motor that can suck up dry particulate and liquids in equal measure.

Dealing with a mixture of materials? No problem! Need to make sure large areas stay spotless for safety and efficiency? You got it! The following three common issues are easily solved with just one high-quality machine.

1. Improve Safety and Stability

Many industrial areas rely on concrete floors or other hard surfaces to provide a stable, safe workspace for costly machines and heavy foot traffic. In manufacturing spaces that generate liquid excess, walkways and work areas can become inundated with wetness that can lead to hazardous conditions.

Trips and falls can easily take place when a concrete floor is slick from water or other materials, and skidding machinery like forklifts and trucks can lead to severe injury or serious accidents. Using a wet dry vacuum to get rid of excess moisture or quickly spreading spills can help to stop these mishaps before they occur.

2. Prevent the Negative Effects of Wet Conditions

Even when liquid runoff isn’t causing issues on the workroom floor, it can still pose a threat to the health and safety of people working in the facility. Low areas and crevices can be the home to unwelcomed guests, such as bacteria, viruses, and other germs.

Left untreated, these areas can affect the health of people working nearby and contribute to subpar air quality, unsettling smells, or even disease. A wet dry vacuum can be used to easily extract the industrial sludge so that these areas can be cleaned and properly dried out.

3. Eliminate Small Particles that Cause Big Problems

A wet dry vacuum doesn’t always have to deal with liquids! It can also take care of issues with dry materials like dust, metal filings, and other particulate matter that collects on surfaces in and around machinery and work areas.

If not taken care of, these small bits of industrial waste can cause a variety of issues, including:

  • Air quality problems
  • Machine malfunctions
  • Slips and falls
  • Potential fires started by errant sparks igniting dust and debris

Using a powerful wet dry vacuum to clean spaces regularly will help keep things safe and sanitary. This approach will also pay dividends in the long run when equipment lasts longer and employees can work in a secure environment.
