Medical Centre and Laboratory Cleaning
Cleaning your medical centre or laboratory is not a job we take lightly. We understand the demand of managing a medical centre and laboratory and the importance of keeping it clean and hygienic at the same time. It is imperative to have high standards of cleanliness to minimise any risk of infection and cross contamination, to ensure staff are comfortable and to assist in maintaining high morale. Second to this is to have a company you can count on that can deliver such a service. Cleaning Edge fits that bill with triple ISO 9001, 14001 & 18001 Accreditation fully trained and highly experienced staff and annual police checks. Let the team at Cleaning Edge give your medical centre or laboratory the edge and take the headache of cleaning away from you.
Our triple ISO 9001, 14001 and 18001 Accreditation cover the environment, quality management systems and OHS practices. We follow strict Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) to clean and sanitise every type of surface using a colour coded mopping and cloth system and hospital grade anti-bacterial non allergenic chemicals that kill 99.9% of bacteria and we employ only the most skilled Hygiene Operators to ensure you, your staff, patients and customers are protected from any potential cross contamination. We know that an infection outbreak could be devastating and cleaning and sanitisation of your practice or laboratory is a crucial step in minimising this risk as much as possible.
In addition to our colour coding system and chemicals, we use only the highest quality HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Absorption) filter vacuums. This is especially important in medical centre and laboratory environments as these filters remove 99.7% of particles with a size of 0.3 µm or larger from the air that passes through it. Particles can contaminate products and cause allergies which can result in sickness and losses for any medical or laboratory facility and so it is imperative to use the right equipment and technology to minimise this risk as much as possible.
At Cleaning Edge Solutions, we are familiar with the RACGP (Royal Australian College of General Practitioners) Infection and Control Standards Guide and its recommendation that all practices have routine scheduled cleaning. Cleaning Edge Solutions will provide a rigorous cleaning schedule that will ensure your medical centre or laboratory is systematically and appropriately cleaned to ensure dust and dirt, which can harbour microorganisms, are kept to the absolute possible minimum. Cleaning Edge Solutions and our expert Hygiene Operators are certified in Cleaning and Disinfection Processes and Infection Control and Prevention which protects both our clients and ourselves if we are exposed to infection at any time. We follow the RACGP policy in the use of PPE in certain circumstances where there is exposure to blood or body fluid or a high risk of contamination or infection. We ensure that the MSDS for every chemical is placed correctly and followed and that it meets the standards for healthcare and laboratory facilities.
We offer a specialised cleaning service for medical centres and laboratories with a systematic approach, close management and internal auditing which will result in the highest hygiene standards possible for your facility. One of our areas of expertise is in cleaning meat works and food processing plants. We all know that food and especially meat, is one of the most susceptible to bacteria and infection can result in deadly diseases. We have a track record of high pass rates for independent audits for the facilities we clean and we maintain these same high standards in our medical centre and laboratory clients.
Contract Cleaning Benefits
Having a contract cleaner as opposed to doing it yourself, can greatly reduce the risk of infection or contamination. There are also some simple things that you can do to help maintain hygiene and reduce any risk of contamination throughout the day. Having anti-bacterial wipes readily available to staff and patients along with hand sanitiser placed within easy reach strategically throughout your facility. This not only promotes a healthy and hygienic look, it encourages people to use them for surfaces they may touch or even on the chairs they sit on. It all contributes toward controlling bacteria that could lead to infection and it all counts!
Surfaces in frequent use and likely to become soiled over a day include carpets, toilet/bathroom fixtures, consultation room furniture and equipment (examination couch, desk and medical equipment) and door handles. You should ensure all of these areas are part of the daily cleaning routine.
Toys and Cleanliness
- The toys are age appropriate and safe
- They are made of nonporous material such as plastic or intact lacquered wood and easily disassembled for cleaning. Alternatively, ‘disposable’ items (eg colouring-in sheets) can be considered for use
- Not soft or stuffed or made of cloth
- Not able to retain water, as moisture is a potential source of infection.
