ATEX Compliant Cleaning Services

GCC Facilities Management provides a wide range of commercial cleaning services to suit any industry or sector, including ATEX compliant cleaning services.

What is ATEX Compliant Cleaning?

Industries that have been classified as having potentially explosive atmospheres present require specialist cleaning to ensure the safety of these environments, their workers and their equipment. These regulations are covered under DSEAR and were introduced in 2002. Such environments can be classified into one of three classes: present continuously, present intermittently, present abnormally.

These industries are required to be compliant under DSEAR by assessing potential risks and hazards and putting control measures in place to minimise the risk. A common hazard found in these environments is the risk of explosive particles (typically originating from dust, particles and/or vapours) which at high concentrations, can create potentially explosive atmospheres. Therefore, this dust needs to be removed from the atmosphere as safely as possible.

GCC Facilities Management uses specialist equipment operated by highly trained teams to safely remove the dust and particles that can cause these hazards. All the equipment used is manufactured specially for these environments, ensuring dust is removed slowly to avoid disturbing the particles and creating concentrated clouds that could easily be ignited. These systems are fully conductive to ensure spark-free operation.

    The Benefits of ATEX Compliant Cleaning

    ATEX compliant cleaning is necessary solely to ensure the safety of both workers and environments. Whilst, accidents involving high concentrations of explosive dust are rare, it’s is not worth taking the risk when the damage caused can be irreparable.

    GCC Facilities Management use long reach machines to remove dust from high levels. With a large range of nozzles available, any surface at any height can be cleaned from the safety of the floor, eliminating the need for expensive cherry pickers and allowing you to continue to work. Once on-site, our operatives can begin work immediately.


    I am delighted with the ongoing service GCC provide to our practice. Not only is all cleaning carried out to specification but we can now evidence this to CQC. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
