27 Feb 2024 9:48 AM | Ever Zamora

To begin, medical cleaning practices are not the same as commercial and residential cleaning practices. For instance, in medical facilities they have a higher risk for spread of infectious diseases due to being such a high touch traffic area mainly by sick patients. Where as residential and commercial cleaning situations are visually low touch traffic areas. 

The cleaning practices in medical facilities is focused on reducing the risk for spread of infectious diseases. By following strict protocols, such as types go cleaning solutions, cleaning tools, PPE, etc. Following proper protocol and cleaning on a regular daily basis helps healthcare facilities try to decrease the spread of infectious diseases.

The cleaning practices when cleaning commercial and /or residential buildings their goal isn't to decrease spread of infectious diseases but more so to focus on the appearance of said buildings. As simple as wiping down high touch surfaces in these residential and commercial buildings can help with the spread of germs and viruses. A basic practice that could also be done by everyone to also help the decrease of germs and viruses is proper hand hygiene. 

In conclusion, by implementing medical cleaning practices into other residential and commercial cleaning situations is a driven advancement to maintaining a safe, clean and healthy environment. The main focus being regularly cleaning high touch surfaces, using proper cleaning solutions, promoting proper hand hygiene, and giving some training that can help with maintaining a clean and healthy environment for everyone.
