A roll of paper towels can be a pretty versatile piece of “equipment,” but don’t mistake it for a catch-all solution to keep your space clean. This example is just a metaphor for all the improper ways people clean every day and, in a hospital or healthcare setting, this makes a huge difference.
Just as a doctor always washes their hands when entering an exam room, all countertops and other surfaces should be disinfected, clutter should be removed, and the room should be neatly prepared for the next occupant. Vacuuming and mopping likewise often have specific tools to make the job easier and more effective. A mop, for example, that leaves behind a lot of water or cleaning liquid where people may slip is probably not the right mop for the job. Do some research to ensure you are using the correct tools, or consider hiring a professional hospital cleaning service. Medical cleaning companies have the training, equipment, and expertise necessary to keep your facility safe for all patients and staff. In many ways, medical office cleaning companies are the right tool for the job.
