SpaceVac & The Textiles Industry

SpaceVac & The Textiles Industry…

The textiles industry – from production to large scale laundries – present a range of challenges for cleaners and facilities managers. During the processes carried out in these facilities, dust and lint can disperse and settle both above and below the eyeline. This creates a number of risks for all involved – not least innumerable health issues caused by the the small dust particles in these raw materials which can also be endotoxins and thus harmful if ingested into the lungs.

In addition, the lint and dust particles themselves are actually potentially explosive – meaning that left unchecked, this combustible dust can build up throughout the facility and potentially ignite; causing catastrophic loss of life and property.

SpaceVac International and our market leading ATEX approved highlevel cleaning system, provides cleaners, Facilities Managers and building owners with a safe, fast and cost-efficient way to remove these hazards from the environments with none of the risks associalted with traditional cleaning methods

Removal of this  material not only helps to reduce the risk of explosion but also help the health of workers – with textile workers at risk of occupational asthma and respiratory irritation from exposure to process dust. Laundry workers can be at risk of respiratory irritation from breathing fumes such as chlorine, hypochlorite, ammonia and sulphur dioxide.
