How You Can Implement Medical Cleaning Practices Into Other Residential & Commercial Cleaning Situations

20 Oct 2021 7:59 AM | Georgios Stathopoulos

Germs, bacteria, and viruses are present virtually almost everywhere. To our workplaces, homes, and recreational spaces. Today, with the emergence of constant harmful viruses, advanced cleaning methods and practices are required to keep commercial facilities and residential home safe and healthy. It is important now more than ever for commercial and residential cleaning services to implement medical cleaning practices to their clients.

When people hear about medical cleaning, they assume that the level of cleaning is impeccable, and no germs, bacteria, and viruses can survive from that process. However, the general population does not have the time nor the training to do that for their own facilities and homes. That is why it is imperative to have a commercial and residential cleaning service to provide a medical cleaning level of service for businesses and homes. Commercial and residential cleaning services are trained in bloodborne pathogens, and chemical hazards. With this knowledge, they know how to clean and disinfect surfaces without fail. In addition, commercial and residential cleaning services are trained of how to wear properly PPE gear, and how to properly dispose them, so they can eliminate the spread of harmful illnesses. Furthermore, cleaning services train their cleaning techs on proper safety measures for the safety of their customers as well as their own. This all sounds good, but not every cleaning service can provide that level of service.

Applying a medical cleaning level of service requires a step further of knowing of how to handle a vacuum, mop, and a disinfectant. It requires to have a knowledge of what germs, bacteria, and viruses are, and how to protect from those diseases. Commercial and residential cleaning services that enroll to organizations such as the IJCSA will receive this training and much more. IJSCA members are trained on Green Cleaning, Bloodborne Pathogens, Chemical Hazards and Medical Cleaning courses to help cleaning companies achieve a higher level of cleaning, so communities can be safe and healthy. In addition IJSCA members receive advice and support of how to develop geared training programs for training and safety practices, and there is a vast network of cleaning professionals who are always there to provide insight to new members who just got into the cleaning industry.  Therefore, it is important to make sure that the cleaning service you hire for your facilities or home belongs to a reputable organization such as the IJCSA, so you can have peace of mind from harmful illnesses.

As stated previously, germs, bacteria, and viruses are everywhere. To keep our employees, clients, and families safe, a level of medical cleaning service is required to combat these diseases. This can be achieved when a commercial and residential cleaning service belongs to a reputable organizations such as the IJSCA because their members receive training and support of how to develop a cleaning service that can provide a superior level of medical cleaning for your health and safety.
