Commercial building are always much more difficult to clean than residential properties. With hundreds of people walking through the doors and many people working within confined spaces, it can get dirty quickly. The carpets, all of the surfaces, and even the air quality will need cleaning. These cleaning procedures are even more difficult when you begin to talk about medical office cleaning. It is important that bacteria, pathogens, and other illnesses are cleaned before they have time to spread. Fortunately, Thunderbird Maintenance Corporation offers deep cleaning services to medical offices in Long Island.
Cleaning a medical office is unlike cleaning any other commercial facility. A medical office can contain sharps and other hazardous equipment that will necessitate specialized cleaning and disposal. Only professional and licensed medical cleaning and disposal services can take on jobs at this level of complication. Let’s go quickly through the steps that are necessary to clean a medical facility thoroughly:
- All cleaning personnel should wear disposable gloves, and masks while cleaning.
- Germicidal and other cleaners that kill bacteria should be used over traditional cleaners.
- Trash should always be removed.
- Red trash bags with biohazard logo should be disposed of by a trained professional.
