Quality Specialist Cleaning for Care Homes
Our Managing Director, Gary Breach discusses the importance of maintaining a high standard of hygiene in care, nursing and residential homes.
Poor cleanliness can lead to a build-up of dirt, bacteria and dust particles. This can increase the risk of illness and health issues amongst staff and especially residents who are often elderly, may have ongoing health problems and are more vulnerable. Hiring a professional commercial cleaning company to clean the premises will keep germs and bacteria at bay and create a safe and clean space for employees, residents and visitors.
Professional commercial cleaning
In 2019, we were approached by Careline Lifestyles, a leading independent provider of high-quality nursing and residential care. Careline Lifestyles supports people with a range of needs from short term care to support a good quality of life, to long term complex care for individuals who require intensive support and rehabilitation. The company had experienced issues with previous cleaning providers not being reliable or providing a consistent high-quality service.
Careline Lifestyles required a professional cleaning company that could provide a thorough and high-quality cleaning service to exceed its expectations. Subsequently, we were awarded a contract to provide specialist cleaning services to seven of Careline Lifestyles’ care homes which are based across the North East of England.
Though it has always been important for care homes to be clean and hygienic, the nature of the COVID-19 pandemic put these practices under the spotlight. During this time our cleaning operatives were tested each time prior to entering the seven care homes to protect the residents and staff. Our cleaning operatives also wore PPE, including gloves, goggles, a mask and a disposable apron to protect them from risks associated with the environment and has continued to wear PPE when using heavy duty cleaning products for tasks such as cleaning ovens.
