How to Keep a Medical Facility Clean

Maintaining a clean medical facility is not just an aesthetic requirement—it’s a matter of patient safety and well-being. Century Linen offers a comprehensive approach to helping healthcare facilities maintain the highest standard of cleanliness. Here’s how to keep a medical facility clean with the industry gold standard in Century Linen: 

Understand the Importance of Cleanliness in Medical Facilities

Before we delve into the steps, it’s crucial to understand why keeping a medical facility clean is paramount. Cleanliness reduces the spread of infections and diseases, ensures the comfort of patients, staff, and projects a professional image of your facility. Century Linen understands these needs and offers high-quality linen services designed for healthcare facilities.

Establish a Regular Cleaning Schedule

Consistency is key when it comes to cleanliness in a medical facility. Having a regular cleaning schedule ensures no area is overlooked. We aid in this process by providing consistent, reliable linen and uniform delivery services to make sure clean supplies are always on hand when you need them. By doing so, we empower your staff with the tools that remove obstacles in the way of delivering exceptional service. 

Utilize Professional Linen Services

To maintain a high standard of cleanliness, use professionally laundered linens with safe, non-abrasive chemicals that uphold the integrity of your garments. Century boasts an excellent linen service specifically tailored to the needs of healthcare facilities. Rigorous cleaning processes adhere to the highest industry standards, so all linens are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized to prevent unnecessary risk that derails patient recovery.  

Prioritize High Touch Areas

High-touch areas, like doorknobs, bedrails, and light switches, are hotspots for germs and need to be cleaned frequently. Century Linen’s comprehensive service includes cleaning materials for these high-touch areas, making it easier to maintain cleanliness in all areas of your facility.

Train Your Staff

Products are nothing without the people that use them. Training your staff on proper hygiene practices is crucial. This includes hand hygiene, handling and disposal of waste, and correct usage of cleaning products. Partnering with us supplements these efforts, as we provide quality, sanitized uniforms, ensuring your staff is always equipped with clean attire.

Use High-Quality Cleaning Products

The quality of cleaning products used greatly affects the level of cleanliness achieved. Century Linen understands this and uses high-quality, EPA-approved cleaning and sanitizing products to treat their linens, reducing the risk of healthcare-associated infections.

Ensure Proper Waste Disposal

Proper waste disposal is a critical aspect of keeping a medical facility clean. Waste should be promptly removed and disposed of in designated areas to avoid cross-contamination. Century Linen’s comprehensive approach also encompasses advice on the best practices for waste disposal.

Leverage the Power of Technology

Century Linen utilizes advanced technology in our linen cleaning processes to stay at the forefront of innovation. This includes advanced laundering equipment and systems to achieve effective soil removal, thorough sanitizing, and proper handling and packaging of clean linens.
