3 Crucial Janitorial Skills Needed for Proper Healthcare Cleaning
Healthcare facility cleaning requires more comprehensive knowledge of commercial cleaning than any other janitorial service. With a variety of regulatory agencies to answer to as well as remaining in compliance with specific health codes, the stakes are higher than any other industry. If you are a facility manager for any type of healthcare facility, it’s important that you partner with the right commercial cleaning and janitorial service that understands the importance of adhering to strict health code standards. ServiceMaster Commercial Cleaning Advatage can offer the highest standard of clean for healthcare facilities and medical offices in the Central Ohio area because we understand these three crucial skills required to properly clean and maintain the sanitary integrity of your facility:
Knowledge of Industry Standards
ServiceMaster Commercial Cleaning Advantage provides extensive training to our janitorial staff to be in compliance with the established best practices as published by:
- Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
- Association of perioperative Registered Nurses (AORN)
- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
- The Joint Commission
- Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA)
- Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC)
By studying and understanding the standards set by these regulatory agencies, we consistently practice the best safety procedures surrounding blood borne pathogens, proper protective equipment and hygiene, sharps and laundry precautions, and hazardous waste disposal methods. You can be assured that every janitorial team member from our team knows and understands the importance of following these standards.
The Right Cleaning Products and Equipment
Healthcare facilities experience a much wider array of bacteria, viruses or pathogens than other facilities. In order to eliminate harmful bacteria effectively, you will need to use hospital-grade sanitizers and disinfectants, including sporicidal disinfectant. As recommended by OSHA, we utilize HEPA vacuums and filters to improve air quality and microfiber mops and cloths to trap and remove pathogens.
Flexibility and Satisfaction
We understand that you need a healthcare cleaning company that can work around your schedule so that you can continue to provide vital services to your patients without being interrupted. ServiceMaster Commercial Cleaning Advantage offers flexible scheduling options to work with your facility’s operating hours. When your healthcare office or facility showcases a sanitary environment, safe cleaning standards and a calm professional environment, it keeps your patients at ease. Improving patient comfort and satisfaction keeps you the services you provide patient-centered, which in turn creates a better investment in the long run.
