Cleaning a medical facility is as important, if not more so, than cleaning office buildings and retail stores. Given the recent pandemic, medical facilities have become even more important in our lives, whether they are doctors’ clinics, hospitals, research facilities etc. And keeping these facilities clean is of the utmost importance if we want to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 as well as any other diseases. Here’s what’s needed to clean a medical facility thoroughly and efficiently:
- Trash Removal: The first thing you want to do in terms of cleaning a medical facility is to get rid of anything that is not going to be of use. Whether it’s masks, PPEs, chemicals or just general trash items like cups and wrappers, a good medical cleaning company will make sure that any medical items which need to be disposed off are carefully handled so as not to put anyone at risk, inside and outside your facility.
- Neat and Clean Appearance: When an area is cleaned, it needs to be made free of dirt and dust. This means dusting all the surfaces that are visible, sweeping, mopping, wiping down class surfaces, cleaning windows etc. If the facility in question is a hospital or clinic, then bed linen and hospital gowns will need to be washed, preferably in hot water so as to kill all the germs.
- Disinfecting: In a medical facility, just cleaning and neatening up a space is not enough; you need to make sure all surfaces are disinfected. In order to do this, it’s necessary to spray the surface with disinfectant, let it sit for a certain number of minutes and then wipe it off. In addition, it is also possible to use disinfecting sprayers which will enhance the disinfecting process.
