The proper maintenance and cleaning of a nursing home, hospital, or other long-term care facility is an absolute necessity and an important responsibility for caretakers and administrators. Residents of these facilities often have compromised immune systems, and are at-risk for infection. They need special, professional care, and it goes without saying that these facilities need to be as safe and clean as possible.
At VForce Commercial Cleaning, our commercial cleaners know the difference between cleaning and disinfecting. Cleaning is the process of removing the soil from a surface, where Coli, Salmonella, Influenza, and other germs can reside. Disinfecting is the process of killing these germs. A good cleaning prior to disinfecting is important, because it allows disinfecting agents to work more effectively than disinfecting alone.
To get the best results in a long-term care environment, VForce professionals use products that meet performance criteria to remove a wide spectrum of target soils and disinfect at the same time. These products save time, and are effective solutions that get the job done right the first time. Cross-contamination can also be an issue in long-term care facilities. Mops, brushes, scouring pads, and scrapers are all common sources of cross-contamination. We have procedures in place to reduce or eliminate cross-contamination by properly cleaning and sanitizing our tools regularly. We focus on high-touch areas that can spread germs further, administering a thorough cleaning and disinfecting to all volatile areas.
