It can be overwhelming wondering how often should your pediatric office be professionally cleaned. Every doctor would like a clean, hygienic, and safe pediatric office for both their patients and staff. Having a regular cleaning schedule is an essential part of providing quality healthcare. Professional cleaning can reduces the spread of germs, allergens, and other particles that can cause respiratory illnesses or skin irritation.
Cleaning Frequency Recommendations.
Pediatric offices should be professionally cleaned at least once per week; Our experienced cleaners pay particular attention to high-traffic areas and surfaces prone to contamination. During cold and flu season, frequent disinfection of high-touch surfaces is a must. 423 Cleaning offers Electrostatic Disinfecting Spraying, which is highly effective at disinfecting various indoor spaces. Vacuuming carpets, upholstery, and other areas should also be done every week. Removing dirt, dust, and other potentially hazardous particles will help your staff and patients breathe more freely.
Start with High-Touch Point Areas.
At 423 Cleaning, we hand-disinfect high-touch areas, such as door handles, countertops, phones, and computers. This crucial step in terms of sanitation is essential as these surfaces contain bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants. Our professional cleaners make sure to use an appropriate hospital-grade disinfectant during the disinfecting process. Of course, regular disinfecting of restrooms, replacing paper towels and toilet paper, and filling soap dispensers are also done at the time of cleaning.
Use Disposable Towels or Linens.
Properly disposing of linens is important when promoting cleanliness. This means that any patient gowns and towels should be held in a air-tight container after every use and sent to a laundry cleaning service to be cleaned properly. Door knobs should be sanitized throughout the business day as they are high-touch items. It is recommended to use disposable disinfecting wipes on lobby toys, furniture and other objects that are touched by patients. Changing exam table paper after every use will prevent cross contamination between patients.
Sanitize your Equipment Regularly.
You’ll need regular sanitization of all medical equipment used in your office. Medical instruments such as stethoscopes, thermometers, and blood pressure cuffs should be sanitized with alcohol-based disinfectants. All surfaces, including bedside tables and desks, should also be cleaned regularly using products specifically designed for medical settings. Have your medical office professionally cleaned at least once a week. It will go a long way in helping ensure your medical office remains germ-free and safe for all your patients.
Vacuum Carpets and Floor Mats Daily.
Carpets and floor mats should be vacuumed daily to keep them free of dust and lint. Carpets are especially prone to bacteria buildup due to moisture. They should be cleaned frequently using steam-cleaning equipment or an electrostatic disinfectant sprayer which kills germs and viruses. Cleaning your carpets and rugs on a regular basis will help create a healthy environment for your pediatric patients.
