Standards of the trade
When working in healthcare cleaning, goggles, latex gloves and protective clothing are the every-day basics, as are disinfectants and thick trash bags. The key is knowing how to properly disinfect while exercising caution in a medical environment.
When working in healthcare cleaning, cleaning a medical office involves the waiting area,
The waiting area
the doctor’s personal office, and the bathrooms. The waiting room and doctor’s persona office require dusting, vacuuming, polishing furniture and wiping down surfaces with disinfectant. Sweep the floor, vacuum the carpets, and mop the floor with disinfectant.
The Examining room
From each examining room, put used linens, patient gowns, towels, etc., in medical disposal bags and place in specified area for collection by the laundry service. Empty the trash cans into medical disposal bags, wipe down the exam table, counters, sinks, and any furniture and chairs, doors and door handles—anywhere patients have touched—with disinfectant. Sweep the floor, and then mop with disinfectant. Best cleaning practices for a healthcare cleaning business.
Spray disinfectant on and around the toilets, the countertops and sinks, stall walls and doors and allow to sit for at least five minutes to thoroughly disinfect. Use a vinegar solution to clean mirrors and windows. Wipe down soap and paper towel dispensers with disinfectant cloths. Sweep the floor and mop with disinfection.
