About this book

Introduction

The word cleaning covers a wide range of activities from good housekeeping and janitorial duties to clinical process cleaning applications that form part of our everyday lives, most people are not aware of their existence, and yet without them, many of the services and products we take for granted would not be available. Most chapters include case studies of various cleaning problems together with the solutions offered. Emphasis is placed on the practical aspects of designing, manufacturing and operating cleaning equipment, this includes a detailed examination of traditional cleaning methods, and considers a number of lessor known techniques that have been developed over recent years together with a glimpse of the future trends in the industry In addition to the actual cleaning techniques, the book examines the effect, of increasing international health, safety, training, and environmental legislation together with regulations that control cleaning standards in the pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, food and drinks manufacturing industries. In this respect, the book is not intended to be a definitive reference book. Legislation and regulations are continually being upgraded, particularly those relating to European Directives. No apologies are given for the fact that the reader will be continually reminded of the need to obtain up to date copies of the various documents referred to, and to secure expert advice on those issues that are crucial in terms of health, safety and hazardous conditions. To assist the reader, useful information sources are listed in the reference section following each chapter.
