Medical office cleaning is different in many ways to commercial office cleaning. The number of restrooms, as well as fixtures in a medical setting, outnumber those in a typical office setting. For this reason is it imperative that you make sure you hire a medical office cleaning service that is able to adequately meet your cleaning needs.
The most common mistake most office managers make is in assuming that a commercial office cleaning service can provide the specific cleaning needs of a medical office. This is never farther from true. When employing a medical office cleaning service, you are getting the peace of mind that your office will be cleaned in a manner that not only is healthy for your patients, but for your staff as well.
It is very important that the cleaning service you choose has performed a proper vetting of their employees and that they are prepared to perform any special tasks that may be required. A reputable medical office cleaning service will have provided sufficient training as well as having educated their employees on the proper procedures and codes required in the handling of both sharps and biohazard based waste.
The employees will need to be trustworthy and need little overseeing, as most offices are cleaned after hours and when the staff has gone home for the day. If you can’t place the necessary trust in your cleaning service that your patient’s confidential information will be safe, in your absence, then you may want to look into other cleaning service options.
As the manager of your medical office, you know what you do and do not need to be done. It also stands to reason that you know the exact services you need from a medical cleaning service as well. Do not be afraid to shop around, get feedback and referrals from fellow medical office managers, and research your options. The hiring of the proper service is a very important step in making sure the health and well being of your employees, as well as patients, is just as important an area, to be properly taken care of, just like any other aspect in the running of your medical office.
