Care Homes in the South West face an ongoing challenge as the need to maintain quality disinfecting cleaning continues.
As we start to understand the ‘New Normal’ we will be living in, there has become a heightened awareness of the cleanliness of our surroundings and contact risk factors from these.
With this greater focus, the difference between a sanitising and disinfecting clean over a general clean is becoming more apparent and the cleaning procedures you had in the past may not be suitable now.
Disinfecting and sanitising should focus on heavy usage areas and touch points.
But in a Care Home, where almost anything is a touch point, where do you start?
We have broken it down to give you the key areas to consider as you move forward..
- Touch Points – Regular disinfecting and cleaning should be maintained to the key touch points that are most likely to harbour contagions like doorknobs, handrails and toilets! This should be done throughout the day so it would be best to set up a sanitising station and ensure this is kept stocked up, for example checked and refreshed during your daily Clarity Cleans cleaning service
- Correct Chemicals – It is important that the correct chemical mix is used to destroy the virus, while also avoiding the unnecessary use of harsh and dangerous chemicals. While soap and water may be suitable outside, a stronger mix is required indoors . It is also important to ensure that those using such chemicals are confident with them to avoid further harm.
- Correct Procedures – When carrying out disinfecting cleaning correct methods are vital to avoid cross contamination. Equipment should not be used in multiple areas and items need to be contained and disposed of/cleaned thoroughly. Surface cleaning with the wrong equipment will also just move the microscopic mess from one place to another.
- Clever cleaning – Regular cleaning and disinfecting will play a key role in controlling the risk of infection and with the right tools and techniques it does not need to mean extra work or elbow grease for your team. With the correct techniques and tools for the job dirt, germs and virus can be removed quickly and effectively.
