Cleaning Activities are the most simple way of categorizing a cleaning application. The cleaning activity can tell us:
- The goal of the cleaning process
- The cleanliness requirement of the finished product
- The types of materials with which the product must be compatible
- The importance of the cleaning process to the business
For example, a customer doing Critical Cleaning in a the process of manufacturing a new product will often be removing cutting fluids from newly machined parts. Their cleanliness requirement is often residue free because the part goes on to be integrated into a larger product. The cleaning process supports the manufacturing process so it’s critical to the business.
Conversely, a janitorial type cleaning activity such as cleaning floors will not have as stringent a cleanliness standard. The cleaning process is part of routine maintenance and doesn’t impact the core operations of the customer’s business.
