Care Home Cleaning
Green Cleaning for Care Homes helps everyone
Care homes by their very nature contain public and private spaces. Dirt and grime accumulates in heavily trafficked areas such as corridors leading to exits and communal spaces like dining halls and sitting areas.
It is important to clean properly to meet care home codes of practice and to minimise the risk of cross-infections in food preparation and food consumption areas. In care homes, flu and other coughs and colds can be much more serious than in the general environment.
Continental FM’s enzyme cleaning provides a completely safe cleaning method for decontamination of surfaces and door handles in public areas, bathrooms, public conveniences and anywhere else. Our product range is completely safe to use around older people and id completely safe should it contact the skin.
Care homes need to operate to same high cleaning standards employed in other healthcare environments. This will help to reduce the spread of infections.
Outside the care home main building the frontage and the refuse bins area need careful green cleaning.
Having entrance halls and clean corridors aids safety through avoiding accidents due to hazardous spillages and poorly maintained areas.
Many Care homes are extensively carpeted. Carpets can harbour many germs and bacteria and need regular cleaning to maintain a hygienic level and a good appearance, Continental FM use enzyme cleaning and built for purpose equipment to deep clean carpets and leave them smelling fresh and nice to touch.
