While it’s important for every type of business to maintain clean and safe facilities, health care requires a higher standard. This is true in hospitals and outpatient clinics, but it’s also true in medical office buildings.
We’ve seen traffic patterns in medical office buildings change dramatically over the course of the COVID pandemic: while there was a significant drop off during the earliest days of the pandemic, traffic began steadily to increase as people could no longer wait to have health concerns addressed. These patients have some level of trepidation due to the pandemic, as do the physicians, nurses, clinical and support staff.
Medical Office Cleaning in Woburn
As a Woburn janitorial service, we can speak to what’s necessary to clean medical office buildings to an acceptable standard during this time. Our practices are informed by guidance from the World Health Organization and the Center for Disease Control, as well as OSHA and industry bodies.
Key to our approach is a commitment to thorough cleaning, sanitizing and disinfection. Because COVID-19 can be transmitted via surface contact – we know now that the virus can live up to five days on stainless steel and six days on plastic – surface disinfection is a top priority. We use medical grade disinfectants – products similar to those found in nearby hospitals – on all surfaces patients and employees are likely to come in contact with. This includes door knobs, countertops, keypads, office equipment and more.
Understanding the Customer Care Center
One of the things that makes our Woburn janitorial service special is our Customer Care Center. It is very important to us to know and be responsive to our customers’ needs. At any time that your medical office building needs an extra thorough cleaning, such as after positive COVID exposures, all it takes is a call to our Customer Care Center to make that happen. Our mission is to keep your facility safe and healthy so your team can focus on providing the best possible care to your patients.
