Long Island medical office cleaning services should be left to the professionals. Think about all of the sick and/or injured individuals that walk into a medical office on a daily basis. While spot cleaning can be completed by employees on a daily basis, deep cleans are necessary to prevent the spread of disease. These deep cleans should only be performed by qualified individuals that have experience and knowledge of how to properly cleanse a medical office. Thunderbird Maintenance Corporation can effectively clean medical offices around Long Island!
Different illnesses and diseases can be airborne or may be transferred from indoor surfaces many days after contact with an infected individual. The proper cleaning procedures are especially important during cold and flu season. The common cold can survive on non-porous surfaces for up to 7 days. Thankfully the infection rates begin to diminish after the first 24 hours. The flu virus can live up to 24 hours on non-porous surfaces (such as medical office counters). One of the most concerning, MRSA (methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus) can live for weeks on non-porous surfaces. This strain of staph infection is extremely difficult get rid of once an individual has been diagnosed.
The long survival rates of bacteria and viruses on hard surfaces are one of the many reasons why medical offices need to hire out to specialized cleaning companies. Commercial cleaning services should not be left up to the staff of a medical office. Deep, thorough cleaning practices must be practiced by experienced and knowledgeable cleaning companies to reduce the spread of illnesses.
