Why Your Pittsburgh Urgent Care Needs Expert Commercial Cleaning
Did you know that Merriam-Webster added “urgent care” to the dictionary in 2017? The dictionary now defines urgent care as “medical care provided for illnesses or injuries which require prompt attention but are typically not of such seriousness as to require the services of an emergency room.” (Source [link])
Urgent care, walk-in clinics, immediate care facilities and convenient care locations are becoming increasingly popular forms of healthcare delivery. In 2017, there were 7,639 urgent care centers in the U.S. (Source [link]). People turn to urgent care facilities for health issues that are non-life-threatening but need prompt attention.
On average, adults get two to three colds per year and children might come down with as many as six to 10, according to the CDC, prompting millions of visits to healthcare providers annually.
Urgent Care Commercial Cleaning Services Checklist
Patients and staff need an extra layer of protection in urgent care facilities. While staff members likely participate in cleaning routines before and after patients enter and exit examination and procedure rooms, thorough action must be taken. Commercial cleaners can sanitize to reduce germs and disinfect to kill germs.
Urgent care facilities are not immune to the infections that can be found at hospitals, surgical centers and nursing homes. Routine nightly commercial cleaning is vital for facilities that need sanitizing and disinfecting to protect patients and staff from contagions that can linger on surfaces such as door handles, countertops, toilets, sink handles and other high-contact areas. Areas that require expert commercial cleaning care:
✔️ Lobby and Waiting Areas
✔️ Examination Rooms
✔️ Procedure Rooms
✔️ Administration Areas
✔️ Lab Testing Spaces
Beyond fighting germs, urgent care facilities must present a pristine appearance to gain the trust of patients and families. Commercial cleaners can properly and routinely maintain other areas in urgent care facilities as well.
✔️ Carpet Cleaning
✔️ Hard Wood and Stone Floor Cleaning
✔️ Window Washing
