A Quick List of Often Overlooked Areas When Cleaning a Medical Facility

Marta Vicente

When you're in charge of a medical facility, you need to ensure that you keep it cleaned and well-maintained. This is so you avoid fines and penalties from your local municipalities but also to ensure the health and safety of your patients and staff.

Hiring an outside company that specializes in such cleaning like Delron Carpet Cleaning Service can be a good choice, but you might also want to make up your own checklist for cleaning in between their visits. There are many area that get dirty throughout the day that are often overlooked when the facility is cleaned. Note a few quick items to include and that many medical facility managers overlook.

1. Mat cleaning

The mats at your entryway are your first line of defense against dirt and mud being dragged into your facility and in turn, compromising its overall cleanliness and neatness. Very often mats are overlooked when it comes time to clean the floors and they may be given a light vacuuming at most. Instead of this, be sure mats are thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis with a good steam cleaner or carpet shampooer. You can also have the mats replaced by a rental agency every week so that you always have a fresh new mat at your entryway.

2. Hand dryers and soap dispensers

When cleaning a medical facility, you may have the bathrooms cleaned thoroughly but then overlook the hand dryers and soap dispensers. If you still use the type that require someone to push a button for the dryer to work or for soap to be dispensed, these surfaces can collect germs and irritants. A person may not have done a thorough job washing their hands or may use the soap dispenser before they even get their hands wet. These should be wiped down with antibacterial soap or otherwise cleaned regularly, even every day.

3. Entryway doors

As with soap dispensers, people may be touching entryway door handles with very dirty hands and in turn, spreading germs and bacteria. This can include your own staff. You can upgrade to automatic doors to avoid this problem or if not, be sure these handles and other areas of the door are cleaned thoroughly. This should also be done for doors inside your facility; doorknobs need to be cleaned regularly as well as handles to sliding cabinets. For any entryway door or any type of handle, be sure cleaning is done regularly and thoroughly so germs don't spread.
