Environmental Cleaning Solutions

Hygiene is critical to food processing. Cross contamination puts food safety at risk, and biofilms harbor dangerous microbes that can be released over time. To ensure clean surfaces and environments, food and beverage manufacturers need a comprehensive approach to environmental cleaning.

Ecolab's environmental cleaning program is responsive and proactive, which is key to sanitization. Our complete offering of programs, products and services helps ensure food safety while optimizing your plan operation.

Floor and Drain Cleaning for Food Processing

Food processing plants have specific cleaning needs for floors and drains. Biofilms stubbornly attach to drains, and the microbes within the biofilms compromise food safety. Workers can also have microbes on their footwear and contaminate floors as they walk through the plant.

Ecolab offers chemistry to effectively sanitize food processing floors and drains. These products work as a part of a comprehensive environmental cleaning program.

Our floor and drain cleaning products come in liquid, foam and powder form, giving you options that best meet your needs. An Ecolab expert can recommend products that are ideal for your operation. Partnering with Ecolab for floor and drain management means you have confidence in your food safety and your cleaning efficacy.
