Every care home needs to be thoroughly cleaned on a daily basis and this takes time, skill and effort. Are you instructing your care staff to clean during the daytime, as well as doing extra cleaning duties during the night when it’s quiet? If so, you really need to stop and think about a more productive and thorough way in which to clean your care home, one that’s not only beneficial to your residents, but also to your visitors and staff. Below we share five benefits in hiring commercial cleaners for your care home.
1. Breathe in healthy air
Dust and allergens will build up over time if the care home is not cleaned on a daily basis. Care homes need to be on top of cleaning as the use of HVAC systems will constantly circulate any dust or allergens in the air. This is why carpets and upholstery need to be cleaned with specialist tools and commercial carpet cleaning products to keep the air clean and healthy.
2. Let your staff care
It can be very difficult for care staff to find time to thoroughly clean bedrooms and bathrooms, especially if they are short staffed and time is precious. Care staff should just be able to focus on providing care to residents, while cleaning duties are delegated to experienced and professional commercial cleaners.
3. Carpet and upholstery will last longer
Due to the busy nature of a care home, carpets and upholstery need to be cared for, and this means giving them a regular professional deep clean. Doing so will not only keep them hygienically clean and smelling fresh, but it will also prolong their life while not damaging any delicate fibres.
4. A deeper clean to fight against infection
Older people can be more susceptible to infection, so it is vital that all living areas, the kitchen and bathroom are kept as clean as possible. This involves deep cleaning tiles and grout in the bathroom, thoroughly disinfecting work surfaces in the kitchen, mopping floors and cleaning any spills.
5. They have the right tools and chemicals
Finally, a commercial cleaning company will have the correct tools for the job. They’ll have the very latest machines, the correct chemicals and the expertise in how to use them to keep your care home feeling fresh and clean.
