Challenges of Escalator Cleaning...

An escalator is one of the first things patrons will see upon entering a hotel, airport or shopping center. No matter how clean the other areas of the building are, if the escalator is not clean people immediately can get a negative impression of the facility.

Cleaning an escalator can seem like quite a daunting task to building service contractors and in-house cleaning professionals. However, cleaning an escalator doesn’t have to be a challenge if there is a plan and the right equipment is used.

When it comes to cleaning an escalator, there are several challenges to consider...

  • Since escalators are not flat surfaces like floors or counter tops, they require specific cleaning products and machines.
  • The grooves in the tread area of the step are a magnet for impacted dirt and are hard to remove.
  • Facilities that have escalators of varying widths present unique problems for cleaning staff.
  • Cost vs. method of cleaning. Timing of cleaning and downtime for an escalator. Challenges of Escalator Cleaning
