If the past year has taught us anything – with the spread of the COVID-19 virus – its that hospitality cleaning is essential in keeping people safe and healthy
Cleanliness is a must for every healthcare setting, because these environments are tasked with protecting and improving the health of millions of UK citizens each day.
A major factor in keeping people healthy is keeping them protected from bacteria that is often found in healthcare institutions, hospitals and surgeries.
Enlisting a commercial cleaning service can provide many benefits for employees and patients. Here at ECS Commercial Cleaning, our professional hospitality cleaning service is dedicated to upholding the national cleaning standards.
In this article we’ll take a look at the benefits of using a commercial hospitality cleaning service.
Meeting Environmental Cleaning Requirements
There are specific healthcare cleaning standards that all healthcare settings in the UK must adhere to.
Healthcare institutions that don’t abide by these regulations may be subject to fines or – more severely – closure.
If patients suffer due to these standards failing, the facility may be liable to be held accountable legally.
Fortunately, our team is trained to uphold the cleaning legislation in healthcare settings across the UK.
Creating a Professional Appeal
Healthcare institutions that fail to maintain a clean and sanitary environment are unlikely to be profitable ones. Patients will be deterred from cooperating with a medical practice if it is considered untidy or dirty.
Healthcare businesses should keep their medical rooms and offices in mint condition, as well as all public waiting rooms and communal areas, no area should be left untouched.
We ensure that dirty seat cushions are vacuumed and sanitised, waste bins are emptied, floors and furnishings are cleaned and dusted amongst other things that usually go unnoticed.
Maintaining a professional appearance is founded upon regular and routine cleaning. Whether your facility is a busy outpatient building or a small dentistry business, a commercial cleaning service can help ensure that your patients’ expectations are being adhered to.
Keeping Employees Safe
Healthcare facilities rely on highly skilled employees with expert training and qualifications, it is these people that need protecting just as much as patients.
Due to the high cost of medical malpractice claims, physicians and nurses are unlikely to work in a facility that goes against the national cleaning regulations.
As well as retaining staff, upholding the cleaning standards can help improve the overall work environment and employee morale, assisting in enhancing worker productivity and job satisfaction.
