Medical Office Cleaning that Makes a First and Lasting Impression

First impressions count. So do second and third and the many more that happen each and every day at medical offices throughout the U.S. Medical offices must shine and, more importantly, must be cleaned to strict standards and rules.

This standard of excellence is what brings clients to Office Pride Commercial Cleaning. From the waiting room to the exam room, Office Pride has created a plan for its employees to follow. Each employee is well-trained for the tasks, which include using top quality Green Seal Certified products (not just the over-the-counter brands). Additionally, employees follow all rules for OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens and Hazard Communications Standards for HIPPA.

“The goal at Office Pride is a lasting impression of exceptional attention to detail,” said Gerry Henley, Executive Vice President. “We’ve created a business model that is built on integrity and that means hiring and retaining the most reliable and trustworthy people to handle after-hours commercial cleaning.”

There are numerous choices for medical office cleaning. And the search for the right one for your needs may seem daunting. When doing your research, consider these four standouts that Office Pride is well known for. Building Industry and Franchise Industry professionals tout Office Pride for its overall attention to detail, trustworthiness, quality people, and customer satisfaction.

It’s in the Details

Medical offices require a very detailed clean. Floor to ceiling. Equipment and furniture. Just like a thorough check up by your doctor, every nook and cranny of a medical office is cleaned to the highest of standards. Don Olson, a happy Office Pride client speaks of this attention to detail. “It is with no hesitation that I recommend Office Pride for commercial cleaning services. This business is built on quality and integrity as well as a customer service orientation put into practice every day. Office Pride excels in customer satisfaction and attention to detail,”

A Company You Can Trust

Office Pride is a faith-based company that bases everything it does off a Biblical Truth found in the book of Proverbs. “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.” You can count on the staff, whether it be owner or employee, to service your space consistently and to the highest of standards. It’s easy to cut corners in cleaning to increase profits. Not so for Office Pride, whose corporate DNA is built on integrity. “Office Pride is a company that focuses on people over profits,” said Henley. That means your medical office will be cleaned by a reliable team.”

A Reputation for Quality People

Founder and CEO, Todd Hopkins sees his team of franchise owners as a family. He points to the community that makes up the Office Pride team. This is true across the board. The training that each employee goes through is thorough and complete. “We have a written exposure control plan and we make sure that every employee knows all applicable OSHA rules for medical office cleaning,” said Olson. Further, Office Pride has a high client retention rate and that’s testament to the quality people that come and clean your space.

High Customer Satisfaction Ratings

Across the board, Office Pride ranks high according to Top Ten Reviews.com And when it comes to medical office cleaning, it’s important to always pass regulatory inspections. According to Top Ten, Office Pride offers all its employees Hepatitis B vaccinations before they enter a medical facility. Plus, all employees must wear gloves, and trash bags are not allowed to come into contact with their bodies.

Making sure these procedures are followed is just one of many reasons that Office Pride ranks high in customer satisfaction.

Prep Your Commercial Property for Hot Weather

Summertime and the livin’ is easy, but the cleanin’ sure isn’t. While there’s plenty of summer fun to be had, the dog days ahead can lead to lax attitudes at work. Conflicting schedules and weeklong summer vacations might mean that business cleaning tends to slip down the list of priorities for a commercial facility. And while employees might stagger their time off, your business still needs to be in top shape. Essentially, cleaning can’t afford to take a vacation.

Office Pride’s business cleaning solutions give commercial facility operators peace of mind knowing that the work will be done professionally and on time. Office Pride understands the challenges presented by hot weather. Pollen and dander might continue to be prevalent leading to the need for frequent dusting and wiping of surfaces. Sand and mud on rainy days and grass tracked in from the outdoors will need to be swept away regularly – summer is also a great time to tackle large floor-care projects. Extend your carpets and hard floor’s life with proper floor care from our professionals. We use only the highest quality cleaning solutions and floor waxing products to ensure your carpet, tile or hardwood floors keep looking great for years.

Hot weather can also mean more opportunities for food spoilage in the facility’s kitchen and refrigerator. Unpleasant odors wafting in to the customer service areas are always a no-no. It’s party time for mold and mildew in the summer, especially in areas with high humidity. These are not only unsightly, they can damage valuable documents and endanger employee health.

Office Pride’s professional business cleaning means a thorough upkeep of a facility’s operational areas for a spotless and clean look. Sweater weather will be here soon enough. So leave the must-do chores to Office Pride so you can get out and soak in the rays with the rest of the crew.

Grading the Health of Your Medical Office Cleaning

For many of us, Spring is a time to do a deep clean of areas in our home and office space. But did you know that each day a deep cleaning is an absolute necessity for medical offices? And while the Flu Season is coming to an end, that doesn’t stop the need for vigilance in keeping a medical office clean.

Enter Office Pride. Our top-rated medical office cleaning services are centered on a “Safety First” policy. Our technicians are trained to use a color-coded system to eliminate cross-contamination. And we adhere to strict Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines for handling needles and other disposables. For over 26 years, we have made three things a top priority in medical office cleaning: Preparedness, Prevention and Being Proactive. We call it the 3 P’s.

Be Prepared to Fight Germ Transmission

Germs lurk and can multiply quickly in medical facilities. So it’s up to the management of a medical office to ensure proper cleaning. That’s why it is critical to hire a team of professionals that is well-versed on procedures to stop the spread of germs. It’s a combination of using the right chemicals and the right tools. But it’s also a total quality program approach. “For example, we make sure we are keeping our microfibers in good shape so that germs are not settling in,” said Todd Hopkins, Area Director for Office Pride. “In addition, we use a special system for the safe and proper disposal of waste,” added Hopkins.

Prevention Is Key

Every year we hear the same message. Prevent the spread of the flu by vaccination or by washing your hands frequently. The same concept of prevention is true for medical office cleaning. And that may mean you need to invest a little more money to save money in the long run. At least that’s according to Henry Schein, a leading supplier of top-rated medical supplies. Taking these extra steps can help prevent further contamination and spreading of germs.

Be Proactive

There are many resources on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website to educate us on infection prevention. But don’t wait for a full-blown pandemic. Have a good program in place from a reputable company like Office Pride. We take cleaning seriously and we are committed to consistency in our services and full customer satisfaction. We’ve done our homework on the OSHA guidelines and make sure our technicians follow those guidelines carefully. According to Cleaner Match, cleanliness is not a luxury in the medical field; it is an absolute necessity. Compared to other types of offices, medical offices require a much higher standard of clean to prevent the spread of disease and infection. Because of this, most choose a commercial cleaning company that specializes in cleaning for the medical field.

So remember the 3 P’s as you decide which program and which company is the best for you. We have many happy clients that you can talk to about our medical office cleaning services. Just give us a call at 727-754-5990 for a NO-Obligation Quote. We’re certain that you will find our clean record worthy of your attention.

It’s Time for Spring Cleaning in Your Commercial Facility

The days are getting longer, the snow is melting, and it’s that time again – spring cleaning time.

office pride cleaningOffice Pride understands the special challenges presented by the return of warm weather, especially regarding floor care. All winter long, people have been tracking in salt, dirt and gravel that can significantly shorten the life of the carpet or hard floor of your commercial facility. The sun is out, and it’s time to clean up winter’s mess, which begins with the floor.

Routine periodic floor maintenance is an important component of the longevity of your commercial facility. This maintenance will drastically prolong the life of your flooring, and though it may cost a bit more than your regular upkeep, it will save you bundles in the future.

Other spring cleaning tips: don’t forget that some of your equipment has been dormant for months, so it’s good to get the HVAC system and air conditioning inspected to make sure it’s in decent working order once the weather necessitates its use. Additionally, you may want to do a deep clean of the facility including vents and make sure all windows are clean and clear.

Between weather changes, precipitation issues and inspections, it’s a lot of work to do spring cleaning for a commercial facility. That’s why you need experts on your side. Click here to find an Office Pride near you – we’ll set you up with a unique cleaning plan to fit your needs.

3 Ways Office Pride Loves Our Janitorial Service Clients

Thanks to Valentine’s Day, February is affectionately known as the Month of Love. And when you walk into any office or medical space, you’re likely to see decorations with images of cupid, hearts, and sweet messages of love.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to celebrate love all-year long?

At Office Pride, we do! We love our janitorial service clients and go out of our way to dote on them. And because we know there are plenty of choices out there, we want you to understand what makes us different.

We start with a faith-based program that is committed to honoring God and loving others. Our janitorial service program was designed by our founder Todd Hopkins nearly 26 years ago as a Master’s project while still in college. Hopkins believes that his company offers janitorial service that exceeds the client’s expectations…every time. He believes, along with the 110 other franchise owners throughout the nation that Office Pride is different because of its desire to live out Biblical principles.

With this mission in mind, there are three ways Office Pride janitorial service excels: We connect with our customers, we consistently give 100 percent, and we show we care.

The Importance of Connecting

We know what you’re thinking. Every janitorial company says the same thing, right? They all make promises of the perfect clean. So how does a business in need of cleaning service choose? Online Business Columnist, Maggie McCormick, recently wrote about the need for janitorial service. “You’ll probably find several office cleaning companies in your city, so you’ll have to choose the one that’s right for you. Though you may be looking to save money, the company with the lowest cost isn’t always the best deal,” she advises.

Solid advice indeed. That’s why we make connecting with our clients a top priority. Our franchise owners are seeking long-term relationships. So we go out of our way to establish a great working relationship, one built on trust, respect, and a genuine concern for getting the job done well.

Consistency Is King

In the world of janitorial service, providing consistent, quality work is absolutely critical. Many companies say they will honor your schedule and your specific needs. But the reality is there is high turnover in the janitorial industry. And that’s tough when you’re entrusting your space after hours. At Office Pride, we pride ourselves on delivering consistency to our clients. We consistently keep the same staff, so you know and trust who is in your building night after night, day after day. Many of our franchise owners are veterans and retired executives who understand the need to follow protocol. They are hard-working, trustworthy men and women who want to earn your business and keep you happy.

Office Pride’s reputation is built on consistently providing the best janitorial service. We’re happy to give you references to talk to our existing customers.

We Show We Care

We treat each person, whether it’s the receptionist or the CEO, with the same love and respect that we give to our immediate family and friends. Have an issue that needs to be resolved quickly? At Office Pride, we make ourselves readily available via text, email, and phone. We work out of home offices, with a central headquarters in Tampa, Florida. Any research on our two and half decade company will show happy customers. And we attribute that to staying true to The Golden Rule of treating others as we would want to be treated.

Truth is, we love what we do. Our clients are our bread and butter. So we go out of our way to spread the love, 365 days a year. To learn more about what makes Office Pride different, call us at 727-754-5990.

For a Clean Space, Start with Clean Tools

office pride cleaningThere’s a lot more that goes into a properly cleaned and sanitized space than meets the eye. At Office Pride, we have a comprehensive color-coded cleaning system that stops cross-contamination and we hit all the spots where germs hide – but it’s also important to remember that the tools themselves need to be cleaned.

From mop and broom handles to trash cans and vacuums, each tool is handled daily by people, and the truth is that human beings are germ machines. Cleaning tools work hard for our cleaners, and we want to make sure that they don’t accumulate bacteria or odors that make cleaning more difficult.

Here are some key items that need to be thoroughly cleaned:

  • – Sponges and rags
  • – Cleaning brushes and toilet bowl brushes
  • – Mops
  • – Microfiber cloths
  • – Brooms
  • – Vacuums
  • – Floor care machines

This list can seem daunting – that’s why Office Pride cleaners are trained, uniformed, OSHA certified and specifically briefed on your exact Customized Cleaning Specification. Office Pride also uses Green Seal™ certified cleaning products and the latest equipment and technology such as micro fiber mops, color coded cloths, high filtration vacuums and advanced technology floor care machines to manage spaces as diverse as churches and daycare facilities to banks and commercial office space.

Avoid Spreading the Flu Using Office Pride’s Commercial Cleaning Services

office pride cleaningAs cold weather and increased precipitation descends during the winter months, the risk for spreading the flu presents itself in commercial spaces, as well as schools, day care facilities, churches and other facilities where people congregate.

Even though these areas are cleaned and maintained regularly, more often than not, germs move faster than any cleaning crew can. On any given day, people are exposed to germs aplenty, whether they come from a sneeze, cough or sniffle.

Luckily, Office Pride is here to help contain and destroy flu germs at the source. With a special blend of its signature commercial cleaning and janitorial services, Office Pride uses top-of-the-line certified commercial cleaning products, not less effective store brands to ensure that carpets, desks, doors, entryways, floors, glass, restrooms, walls, water fountains and more are clean and free of germs.
