A proclivity to obsessive compulsive cleaning and hygiene is pretty much considered an advantage for us when it comes to servicing our clients in the healthcare sector. That’s because we understand that our role is to safeguard healthcare workers and patients by keeping bacteria and viruses (such as COVID-19) at bay.

To truly achieve hygienically clean environments, we adhere to meticulous cleaning protocols that fall within regulatory requirements. Our role is to create a healthy work environment, from
the waiting room to the operating theatre, to prevent the spread of germs in high traffic and high risk areas.

Let’s take a look into what it takes to keep these medical facilities safe.

The Importance of Cleaning Standards in Healthcare Facilities

At Red Alert Cleaning, we recognise that healthcare environments are not your typical workplaces. They demand an unparalleled level of detail when it comes to cleaning and disinfection to keep people safe and reduce the risk of catastrophe. Patients visit clinics seeking to cure their ailments, expecting expert medical care and an environment that promotes recovery and well-being. They assume that certain hygiene standards will be maintained and harmful pathogens will be eradicated from surfaces.

As a professional cleaning company specialising in healthcare facilities, we understand that high standards of cleanliness are more than just guidelines; they are a commitment to excellence and safety, a promise that healthcare providers make to their patients.

Adhere to ISO Standards

In the healthcare industry, adherence to ISO standards is crucial for maintaining compliance and ensuring the highest level of cleanliness. At Red Alert Cleaning, we pride ourselves on meeting and exceeding these standards in every healthcare facility we serve. By following ISO guidelines, we help prevent the spread of infectious diseases and maintain a safe environment for both patients and staff.

Optimise Patient Safety

Patient safety is our top priority. We understand that a clean and sanitary environment reduces the risk of healthcare-acquired infections (HAIs) that could cause serious illness or even death in certain individuals. By implementing medical-grade cleaning standards, we help ensure that patients are not exposed to unnecessary health risks during their stay in your facility.

Increase Staff Hygiene and Productivity

We recognise that your healthcare team is on the front lines, and their well-being is as crucial as your patients’. A clean and well-maintained facility promotes staff hygiene and productivity. Moreover, employees working in a clean environment are less likely to fall ill, resulting in fewer sick days and more efficient healthcare delivery.

Reduce the Risk of Cross-Contamination

In healthcare, cross-contamination is a frightening phrase. It occurs when pathogens are transferred from one surface to another, potentially infecting patients and staff. At Red Alert Cleaning, we employ stringent cleaning standards as your defence against this invisible enemy. Our protocols help prevent cross-contamination by ensuring that every surface is thoroughly sanitised with the appropriate disinfectant.

How We Evaluate Healthcare Cleaning Standards

As a professional cleaning company, we understand the importance of maintaining high cleaning standards in the healthcare industry. Here’s how we ensure that the facilities we service meet and exceed these standards:

Inspect High-Touch Points

High-touch points, such as doorknobs, light switches, and handrails, are breeding grounds for germs. Our team regularly inspects these areas to ensure they are being properly cleaned and disinfected. We understand that these are the first places to assess cleaning standards and that they should be wiped down regularly throughout the day, not just once in the morning or night.

Perform Regular Audits

Regular audits are essential for maintaining high cleaning standards. Our team conducts frequent audits of the facilities we service, evaluating every aspect of the cleaning process, from the products used to the techniques employed. These audits allow us to identify areas for improvement and make necessary adjustments to our protocols, ensuring that your healthcare facility consistently receives the highest level of service.

At Red Alert Cleaning, we understand the critical role that cleanliness plays in maintaining a safe and healthy healthcare facility. Our team of highly trained professionals is dedicated to providing a level of service that meets and exceeds prescribed industry standards, ensuring that your facility remains compliant and free from harmful pathogens. By adhering to stringent cleaning protocols, conducting regular audits, and employing advanced testing technologies, we help create an environment that promotes patient safety, staff productivity, and overall well-being. When you partner with Red Alert Cleaning, you can rest assured that your healthcare facility is in the hands of experts who are committed to excellence in every aspect of their work.
