Top Tips on Removing Cobwebs in Your Sydney Warehouse

Top Tips on Removing Cobwebs in Your Sydney Warehouse

Cobwebs can build up quickly in an industrial space like a warehouse or a factory. Plenty of high corners, nooks, and crannies make an ideal environment for spiders to nest and create extensive webs. And when they’re high up, they are much more difficult to remove!

However, removing cobwebs from your Sydney warehouse should be done regularly for several reasons. These include:

  • Maintaining a professional appearance
  • Health and safety requirements
  • Prevent additional spiders and pests in your facility.

The process of removing the cobwebs can be tricky, and often presents a range of health and safety hazards. That’s why we’ve put together this list of tips on removing cobwebs from your Sydney warehouse.

Hire a professional Sydney warehouse cleaning company

The first tip is to hire a professional Sydney warehouse cleaning company. Every other tip is secondary because this is the swiftest and safest way to ensure that your cobwebs are completely removed. 

At Sydney Sweep and Scrub, we have plenty of experience removing cobwebs from warehouses and factories all over Sydney. We work at heights regularly and therefore, we’re well aware of the risks. Our people are equipped with all of the necessary PPE and are well trained in safe practices.

We use the best equipment for the job, including telescopic cleaning poles, pressure washers, and scissor lifts where necessary. That allows us to take the time required to clean correctly, and remove your cobwebs without any problems.

Check for spiders

It’s important that when removing cobwebs, you check carefully for spiders. No one wants to be bitten! Moreover, if spiders do get away, they’ll simply set up shop somewhere else, and a few days later, your warehouse will once again be graced with cobwebs!

Have the right gear

It’s important to use the right gear when removing cobwebs. If you’re not working at height, this can include:

  • A vacuum cleaner, industrial or otherwise
  • A broom
  • Microfiber cloth
  • Cobweb duster
  • A microfibre broom
  • A mop and bucket.

However, if the cobwebs are at height, other instruments will be required:

  • A telescopic pole
  • Ladders
  • Scissor lift if required.

Occasionally, insecticides may be recommended. This is usually in the case of large nests or infestations of spiders and other insects, to ensure that they are completely eradicated and will not return.

Take care at all times

It’s important to work safely when dealing with cobwebs in your Sydney warehouse, particularly when they are above a height of two metres. The right PPE should always be worn, to protect from injury, as well as spider bites.

Working at height requires training and the right qualifications, so under no circumstances should you attempt this yourself. Leave this to a professional Sydney warehouse cleaning company like Sydney Sweep and Scrub.
