Proactive vs Reactive Cleaning

In many businesses, cleaning is not given much thought, until the item becomes too dirty to work effectively. At this point, the part can either be replaced with a new one or cleaned. This cleaning, if done properly, will prolong the part’s life for a period, maybe even indefinitely.

However, for certain types of items, running them until they no longer work can lead to irreversible damage such that they can only be cleaned so many times before requiring replacement. This is when a proactive cleaning schedule should be considered. The frequency of this planned cleaning will depend on the needs of the business and type of item.

Benefits of Proactive planned cleaning

There are many other benefits to a planned cleaning schedule. Down-time can be kept to a minimum as you can choose the most convenient time to service your parts rather than having a stoppage when they fail. There can also be cost savings on the cleaning itself as a partially contaminated item will clean quicker, easier and cheaper than a completely contaminated one. Sonic offer preferential pricing for those who send items in regularly for cleaning.

The process that the part serves also invariably works better – quicker, less downtime, less waste, better end product, and easier running.

Finally, when cleans are planned we can offer a quicker turnaround since your part is booked into our work schedule with the necessary equipment, chemical and staff in place.

Typical items benefiting from a proactive approach

Items like filters, flame arrestors, print rollers, heat exchangers and valves are all likely to offer significant advantages when cleaned proactively with a planned schedule. They will last longer, function better and cost less time and money.

What Our Customers Say About us


We approached Sonic Solutions after our parts manufacturers let us down and wasted precious time by supplying oily parts. Not only were they friendly, helpful and happy to rush our parts through - the quality was unbelievable! They arrived back at our factory just in time to not hold up production and we couldn't recommend them highly enough.

Martin Frings


Our company AssetCool found the entire team at Sonic Solutions to be responsive and incredibly supportive of a new project. Their technical knowledge is superb, and they delivered exactly what they promised. We're very happy to recommend them to anyone with ultrasonic cleaning needs, and look forward to working with them again in the future.

Tonia Parris


I reached out with a problem to various companies prior to talking with Sonic Solutions, most were unhelpful. These guys insisted on the first trial being for free! The job was excellent and the turn around time very impressive. We are now setting up a monthly cleaning regime with them. A joy to deal with.
