First impressions are critical when patients are choosing their health care facility. That’s why it’s essential to have a well-cleaned facility. Dusty corners and fans are not only unsightly, but they can be damaging to patients’ health as well.

- Daily Dusting
- Floor Care
- Replace Linens Weekly
1) Daily Dusting
Dusting should already be a part of the cleaning crew’s responsibility. If your facility already has a cleaning checklist in place, daily dusting needs to be added. The cleaning team needs to dust behind and underneath furniture.
Pro Tip: In health care facilities, fans, countertops, and corners need to be regularly cleaned to eliminate dust build-up.
2) Floor Care
All floors need to be thoroughly dusted on a regular basis. If you don’t already have them, consider investing in some treated dust mops and microfiber flat mops that can catch those invisible dust particles and get in those hard to reach places.
3) Replace Linens Daily
Dust and bacteria can quickly build up on bedding, resulting in illnesses and infections. Your healthcare facility should have plenty of sheets, pillowcases, and blankets so that they can be changed every day to protect patients.
