The cleaning of an office space is different from the cleaning of a medical office. In the cleaning of a medical office, you have to make sure that every part of it gets disinfected. There is greater emphasis in the disinfection of areas with high concentration of germs, or basically the areas where patients immediately go in the medical office space for a preventive action against contamination.
What is usually cleaned up in the waiting room is the trash bin, and the other cleaning task in this area involves keeping things like magazines in order. You can sweep the waiting room’s floor for any dust and trash if it is not carpeted. For floors that are carpeted, it can be vacuumed for any trash and dust to keep it clean for the patients and visitors. However the cleaning of the medical office waiting area, goes beyond that and there are actually more things that has to be done.
The reading materials that are available in the waiting area are wrapped in plastic sleeves. The cleaner makes sure that each of the plastic sleeve-wrapped magazines are disinfected already once it is placed in the rack. A cleaners has to make sure also that the rack for the reading materials has been disinfected from all of the germs and viruses that could be reproducing in it already.
The usual practice is to clean up the waiting room furniture once in every month. The furniture in the medical office needs to be cleaned after the officers, so that means daily. All of the benches, chairs, and tables should be cleaned and be free from any germs and viruses. To protect the patients from contracting any form of viruses and germs, that is the goal of disinfecting the waiting area furniture daily. Exception is not placed to the plants that are in waiting area as a decoration, they are disinfected as well. The wiping and spraying of a disinfectant prevents any germs and viruses to multiply in any part of the plant.
To make the cleaning of the floors of the medical office hassle-free, you can have it tiled so that the cleaning only involves sweeping and mopping. You will have a hard time removing those viruses and germs on a carpeted floor. A medical office needs a tiled flooring.
Cleaners are also given the task of making sure that the filters in the air condition are functioning well to prevent the spread of airborne bacteria and virus.
If there are disposable materials used, for example syringes and vials, then the cleaner should get rid of them immediately. Special treatment is applied to the disposal of the infectious waste, so a separate container should be available and prepared for these waste to be properly dealt with.
