Hospital Cleaning

Ensuring the correct level of cleanliness and hygiene in a hospital environment is a difficult task. The requirement is not just for things to look clean, they have to be cleaned to a deeper level than might be acceptable outside that environment. The complications involved in organising the cleaning of medical facilities are not insurmountable but need careful planning and fortunately there are a wide range of machines to assist in the clean up.

Cleaning Floors

We know from our own experience that the floor is the prime area where the detritus of human activity ends up. The different types of machines available for cleaning floors are quite extensive and invaluable. For hard floor areas in particular there are scrubber driers which are available in a variety of sizes for cleaning large and small areas. This equipment is useful in hospital cleaning as it effectively washes and scrubs the floor using rotating brushes, and then dries it using a system of squeegees and sometimes vacuums. The vacuum cleaner is also an essential tool in this area; again in various sizes for different duties depending ion the size of the area being cleaned and ease of access. For sensitive areas a machine such as the EDGE Lindhaus with its multilevel filtration controls to deal with particulate biological contamination could be used. An additional feature of this machine is its low noise level making its operation less disruptive to the surrounding environment. For carpeted areas vacuums can be used along with carpet extraction machines when a deeper clean is required.

Cleaning Equipment in Hospitals

The equipment used in hospitals requires specific cleaning. One tool that is excellent for sanitising surfaces and equipment is the dry steam cleaner. By applying super heated steam to a surface it changes the state of the dirt and grease to a liquid form enabling its removal. The steam cleaner can have the additional faculty of a vacuum to clean away the unwanted residue. This type of cleaner is particularly useful in hospital cleaning as it cleans the nook and crannies of a surface rather than merely dealing with the superficial. Steam cleaners can be portable or fixed where there is a regular requirement, and are available in various sizes and formats to suit the cleaning job to be tackled.
