Salt Lake City is the most populous city in Utah. It is home to many medical offices, clinics and hospitals to take care of those who live in the area. In order to best serve the community and prevent the spread of bacteria, these clinics keep their offices clean and sanitized.
Instead of hiring a general janitorial service to clean your medical offices, consider hiring professional cleaners. Here are the reasons why you should put your trust in professional cleaners to make sure your office is properly cleaned.
- Professional Cleaners are Prepared to Clean a Medical Office
Those entering a medical office expect a certain level of cleanliness and hygiene. They come to the clinic to get better, rather than get sicker. If the clinic fails to maintain that expected level of cleanliness, it can cause patients to get other diseases from the buildup of bacteria.
This failure may also cause your staff to get ill due to the germs and bacteria in the office. You can’t completely dodge these germs because patients come in and out of your office everyday. However, professional cleaners can quell these storms of sickness that may fall on your office.
Professional cleaners are prepared with the necessary equipment and cleaning supplies needed to properly sanitize a medical building. A trained team can more effectively combat the bacteria that lies on all your surfaces. They will also use the correct cleaning chemicals needed to both clean and sanitize the various areas in your clinic. This assists in keeping both patients and employees safe and protected from viruses caused by bacteria.
- Professional Cleaners are Trained and Certified to Clean a Medical Office
Trusting Professional cleaners to clean your office space will ensure that it maintains a high level of cleanliness and sanitation. Professional cleaners assist your office to meet the standards of regulatory bodies. They are usually trained to adhere to HIPPA, OSHA, CDC guidelines as well as others.
Assuring your medical office is cleaned in accordance with the necessary guidelines will help your office avoid the fines associated with a failure to comply with the guidelines. Conducting the generic cleaning steps like sweeping, mopping, and taking out the trash will not be enough to meet these detailed standards. While general janitorial companies don’t offer the specific services that meet these standards, professional cleaning companies do.
If the cleaning company you are using now doesn’t offer the required services, it is crucial for you to seek out a company that offers them and values the importance of being trained in these standards.
- Professional Cleaners will Increase your Office’s Profitability
Bringing in a professional cleaning service to clean your medical office properly may seem like a big expense to take on. However, you may be surprised by the return on investment. Your office will radiate hygiene and cleanliness which patients value. When they walk into a clean office, they see that you prioritize their well-being and your work.
When patients are happy with their care and the state of the office, they share their experience with their friends and family. This brings in more business because they recommended your care facility. However, this can also go the other way. If patients walk into sub-par conditions, they will share their bad experience with their friends and family. Therefore, recommending they get care somewhere else. Some sub-par conditions include dirty bathrooms, trash on the floors, markings on the walls, and cobwebs on the ceilings. You definitely want a clean office in order to get those valuable customer referrals and get those patients coming back when needed.
Word of mouth is a significant factor of gaining new business. If your patients are not satisfied by the cleanliness of your office, it is highly unlikely that they will give a positive review to those they talk to. Another important method of increasing the number of patients you serve is physician referrals. When physicians hear from patients that your office is dirty, they won’t be as willing to send and refer patients to you.
- Professional Cleaners are More Affordable
Wouldn’t it be cheaper to ask your employees to clean the office during or towards the end of their shift? Actually, in a way it wouldn’t.
Your staff is being paid to perform certain duties that have been agreed on when they started working for you. To tack on deep cleaning the office is just another thing that they would have to take time to do. This causes items to be forgotten about and put aside when trying to get all their tasks done which leads to a poorly cleaned medical office. It would also take your staff longer to properly clean the office because they aren’t properly trained on cleaning procedures.
When you weigh the hourly wage of your employees against the cost of hiring professional cleaners, you may be surprised. It would cost more to pay your employees to clean the office rather than hiring a professional team. In addition to this, you know your office is being deep cleaned and sanitized each time they service your location. Your office will both look clean and be safe for your patients and staff to be in.
Your budget and time is important, so remember you get what you pay for.
Entrusting your medical office to the professional cleaners will make sure that each cleaning is done in a timely manner, it is done efficiently, and it is done properly. It is also done for an affordable price. Instead of paying a general janitorial company a large amount of money, leave medical office cleaning to the professionals.
