Trained Medical Facility Cleaning Staff
There may be extra medical cleaning staff training required for our health-care janitorial employees and close supervision to assure the medical facility is cleaned correctly.
Specialized medical grade equipment, health-care appropriate chemicals, and supplies to meet the requirements of a particular health-care facility.
Laws governing medical facilities such as hospitals, clinics, assisted living facilities in your state may require you, as an employer in the health care industry,
to provide your employees with biomedical hazard communication training,
shots and vaccines for hepatitis, and instructions for the proper disposal of biohazard materials cleaned.
Medical Facility Cleaning Services
In addition to general medical cleaning we can also provide doctor's offices, hospitals and other patient facilities with floor care, carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning, and window cleaning.
Smaller health care facilities like private practice Dr's offices, birthing centers, outpatient care and drop in clinics require their own specialized cleaning protocols. Larger health-care facilities
like medical labs, public hospitals, private hospitals, children's hospitals and emergency room clinics.
Medical Cleaning Sterilization and Disinfection
Sterilization or disinfection is common requirement for cleaning most areas of a medical facility.
Sterilization refers to cleaning with powerful chemicals that destroy all known microbial life.
Disinfection is different in that it means killing specific types of pathogens and microorganisms.
If required with either procedure you will be using hospital grade disinfectants.
Medical Facility Cleaning Equipment
We pay special attention to mops, cleaning cloths, and buckets. These items are to be cleaned every day, and sometimes after each use.
Most medical facilities are cleaned using microfiber cleaning cloths and flat mops, as there is less chance of cross-contamination.
It may also be a requirement to use a true HEPA filtered vacuum.
A HEPA vacuum cleaner is necessary to protect indoor air quality and prevent microorganisms from becoming airborne.

Medical Cleaning Rules, Regulations and Laws
When Commercial Janitorial staff is cleaning a medical facility, they must assume that every surface of the physician's office, dentist office or medical office they clean poses a
potential risk to themselves, the nurses, doctors, medical staff, patients, and visitors to the facility.
Commercial Janitorial staff will follow the regulations established by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) for mitigating exposure to blood borne pathogens.
Commercial Janitorial will wear proper personal protective equipment (PPE), which includes latex or rubber gloves and possibly eye protection.
Wearing PPE assures that cleaning staff will not touch contaminated surfaces and also protects them from splashes and spills of contaminated items like lab samples.
Medical Cleaning Scheduling
Cleaning hospitals is a challenge because often they are open 24 hours a day.
Large area cleaning, such as hard floors or carpets in the hospital, may involve blocking off areas of the hospital until the project is completed.
The same holds true for public rest rooms in the hospital. Hospitals, Intensive care units, assisted living facilities and nursing homes may require mitigation of noise caused by vacuum cleaners.
In these cases, quiet vacuum cleaners may be used.
Many health care facilities are now requiring vacuuming hard surface floors opposed to dust mopping because vacuuming reduces the amount of dust and other particulates that can become airborne
throughout the physicians office, medical clinic or hospital.
