Cleaning shutdown services

Plant maintenance shutdowns are a critical time in the operation of a facility. A well-planned shutdown can positively impact the plant and have it running within capacity for years.

During a shutdown, all plant activities are stopped to facilitate maintenance, repairs, and equipment replacements. Plants are regulated for health and safety to ensure operations are within guidelines set by governing legislation.

Cleanaway’s expert teams regularly undertake shutdowns for cleaning and maintenance where time is critical.

We pride ourselves on using our own in-house experts and specialised equipment to deliver your program on time and on budget. Our specialist crews provide complete management from start to finish, ensuring fast turnaround and limited outage time.

Using our range of specialist equipment, we provide innovative solutions to reduce plant shutdown time and positively impact overall plant profitability.

Maintenance shutdown solutions in action

Cleanaway has extensive experience in servicing companies for thorough facility cleaning. We have worked with car manufacturers to do their annual maintenance shutdown. Our team of 16 operators performed high pressure cleaning of paint booths, sludge removal from large waste ponds, and cleaning of large treatment tanks, industrial fans, pits and drains.

We have also worked with paper mill facilities, mining companies, and tar production facilities with varying cleaning needs. We offer solutions that are tailored to your space, equipment, requirements and specifications. We make sure to significantly reduce the time it takes to conduct our cleaning shutdown services so you can reduce your profit loss and resume operations as soon as possible.
