Medical facilities and medical offices must be kept at an extremely high level of cleanliness and hygiene. There are lots of places dirt, grime, and germs can linger in a medical office. Keeping on top of the necessary cleaning at your medical office every day is important. You have your restrooms, front office, and waiting room areas as well as patient rooms that should be looked after daily.
But, what about the necessary cleaning on a weekly basis? You don’t want to wait to clean your dirtiest and germiest areas until the end of the week, but you can certainly wait to dust desks or vacuum storage closets until the week is up.
And, this is what we are going to talk about in this post – a checklist of weekly cleaning activities for your medical office.
Weekly Cleaning Checklist for your Medical Office
Medical Office Cleaning
While this space is probably used on a daily basis, leaving desks and office areas for a weekly cleaning can work out just fine. Organizing and dusting desks, office chairs, desk accessories, and shelves should be taken care of once a week. While you might need to vacuum the halls and front entryways of your medical clinic on a daily basis, waiting to the end of the week for office vacuuming and hard floor cleaning is perfectly acceptable. Remember when you clean items that are used and touched often, wipe and clean them with a sanitizing spray to kill germs and bacteria to prevent them from spreading around your office.
Medical Conference Rooms
These general meeting rooms in your medical clinic can get a similar cleaning treatment as your office spaces. Look them over on a daily basis to make sure food and trash aren’t left behind, chairs are pushed in, and remember to check the trash bin. But, other than that, a weekly cleaning, dusting, and vacuuming will be perfect to keep the appearance of this workspace nice and professional.
Medical Office Furniture
Your office furniture might get overlooked when you are cleaning on a daily basis, but this area of your medical office should be touched up, polished and vacuumed once a week as necessary. Handles, arms, and legs on chairs, tables, and couches can collect sizable amounts of germs throughout the week. Make sure to wipe and sanitize these areas while vacuuming any fabric or upholstered chairs and couches that accumulate crumbs and dirt.
Small Office Appliances
Again, daily attention to places like scales, copiers, vending machines, and water dispensers might not be needed. However, they should be cleaned and dusted once a week to keep them looking good and prevent these areas from harboring germs or viruses. These machines and appliances will see a lot of traffic throughout the week, so it’s a good idea to give them cleaning and sanitizing attention weekly. Make sure to focus on the buttons, handles and push screens that attract the most fingerprints.
Your Medical Office Cleaning Schedule
If you find these areas need more attention based on use or cleanliness, they can absolutely be put into the daily rotation to keep them looking nice and preventing the spread of germs. All medical office spaces vary depending on the number of people that come in and out during the day, and of course how much dirt is left behind. It’s important to keep a medical office clean and sanitized so being flexible with your weekly and daily schedule is something to take note of. You want this type of medical space to look its best, look professional, and most of all – be a sanitary space.
