Implementing Medical Cleaning Practices in My Business

07 Apr 2023 5:34 PM | Joseph Albergo

Medical cleaning practices are some of the best in the cleaning field. These practices are responsible for saving countless lives when followed and for killing over 99,000 people a year according to the CDC's 2003 Guidelines for environmental Infection Control in Healthcare Facilities, when not followed. Medical Cleaning is a lot more methodical and time consuming and is not required or necessary for every job. Nevertheless the mixture of these practices can greatly improve the effectiveness of a regular cleaning schedule. 

I personally apply some of these cleaning procedures and practices in to my business alongside many others businesses, some of which can be found at the Janitorial Service Directory Knowing step by step protocols greatly increases my business capabilities in solving cleaning related problems. Some examples include universal precautions and protective practices that are used when encountering anything that has to do with blood. This helps to ensure the safety of my employees and employees working in the building.

Medical practices has also helped my company to better utilize proper sanitizers or disinfectants depending on what the situation calls for. Some examples are using CaviCide surface disinfectant and decontaminate when blood is present and lower level sanitizers when food is present or used in the area. Knowing the exact tool for the job greatly reduces time assessing a situation.

Implementing healthcare standards of cleaning alongside regular cleaning can be extremely beneficial when it comes to the health and well being of the public. Many cleaners without this knowledge may inadvertently cause harm to others from lack of information. Being able to properly incorporate these practices is sure to differentiate one's business from the competition and shows just how much one cares for their customers.
