How You Can Implement Medical Cleaning Practices Into Other Residential & Commercial Cleaning Situations?

18 Mar 2023 12:46 PM | Deleted user

Most medical cleaning practices can be used in almost any other application. There are designated levels of cleaning and disinfecting that set a MINIMUM standard for different types of facilities and/or properties. Although a residential property may require a lower level of protection against infectious diseases in comparison to a medical facility, execution is just as important.

Most homes may not have much foot traffic or many visitors on a daily basis creating a lower level of risk. However, rental properties such as Air Bnb’s are becoming more and more popular throughout resulting in a much higher amount of people passing in and out of the homes at a much higher capacity regularly. This increases the risk of infection dramatically and increases the demand for a higher level of protection than normal.

Another example would be use of PPE. In a medical setting, the proper PPE is required always, while a residential or retail setting may not have the same requirements.

As good practice, it is recommended that items such as gloves and protective eyewear be worn during ANY cleaning or disinfecting to reduce risk of harm, infection, and/or cross-contamination.
