How I Became An Expert on Cleaners
The cleaning of an office space is different from the cleaning of a medical office. A medical office cleaning job requires thorough disinfection in every nook and cranny of the office. 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.
If you are a cleaner you would be busy with setting the magazines in the right place and on clearing the waste basket if it is full already. For floors that are not carpeted, a cleaner can sweep it for any trash and dust that has accumulated in it. You can vacuum the waiting room’s floor for any trash and dust that has accumulated in it. The medical office waiting area is not just your ordinary waiting area found in other offices, the standards of cleanliness for it greatly differs from those of the others.
Before they are placed in the waiting room, the reading materials have to be wrapped in a plastic sleeve for the patients to read. 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.
Typically, the waiting area furniture are only cleaned once a 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. The plants that are in the waiting area has to be disinfected also. It is possible for germs and viruses to be present in the plant’s parts, so it needs to be wiped and sprayed with a disinfectant.
An easier way for the medical office floor to be cleaned up is to tile it up so that you can just mop and sweep it. You will have a hard time removing those viruses and germs on a carpeted floor. The tile should be the flooring for a medical office.
To keep virus and bacteria from spreading in the air of the medical office, a cleaner has to regularly check the filter of the air condition if it is still working.
Things like vials and syringes, which are disposable, are not to be used again and should be put in the garbage. Since this type of waste is infectious, you do not throw it in the same trash bins as your other garbage, but throw them in special infectious waste bins.
