There are stark differences in the cleaning job offered for a typical office and a medical office. A medical office cleaning job requires thorough disinfection in every nook and cranny of the office. A cleaner has to put more effort in killing the germs on spaces in the office where patients come into contact with, so that contamination is stopped.
The main task of the cleaner in the waiting room is to empty the waste basket, throw all the trash out, and arrange all the magazine in the rack. You can sweep the waiting room’s floor for any dust and trash if it is not carpeted. A carpeted waiting room floor has to be vacuumed for any trash and dust that has accumulated in it. However the cleaning of the medical office waiting area, goes beyond that and there are actually more things that has to be done.
The reading materials that are available in the waiting area are wrapped in plastic sleeves. A reading material wrapped in plastic sleeve, before placed in the rack, should be thoroughly disinfected. A cleaners has to make sure also that the rack for the reading materials has been disinfected from all of the germs and viruses that could be reproducing in it already.
The usual practice is to clean up the waiting room furniture once in every month. Cleaners of medical offices, clean the furniture in the waiting area everyday. The cleaners do the job of wiping all of the chairs, tables, and benches so that they are disinfected. Again, this has to be done to ensure the safety of the patients who will be there the next day from any germs and viruses. The plants that are in the waiting area has to be disinfected also. The wiping and spraying of a disinfectant prevents any germs and viruses to multiply in any part of the plant.
An easier way for the medical office floor to be cleaned up is to tile it up so that you can just mop and sweep it. The thing with carpeted floors is that they are a challenge for those who does the removal of viruses and germs. A medical office needs a tiled flooring.
There are airborne germs and viruses that might be present in the medical office, so the filters for the air condition has to function really well to keep any contamination and infection.
Things like vials and syringes, which are disposable, are not to be used again and should be put in the garbage. Special treatment is applied to the disposal of the infectious waste, so a separate container should be available and prepared for these waste to be properly dealt with.
