Consistent, thorough cleaning is essential to a senior living community. Taking care to provide an overall sanitary and tidy facility is going to ensure healthy conditions for your patrons, their family and friends, and your staff. How clean and well-kept your senior facility is will also influence those seniors and their families considering a move into your community. Let’s take a look at how to clean a senior living community.
How to Clean a Senior Living Community
A Plan to Focus your Cleaning
At the top of your list, you want to make sure all restrooms and kitchen facilities are routinely cleaned and disinfected. Avoiding the spread of germs and bacteria in your senior living home will help to prevent illness. Make sure to thoroughly wipe and sanitize all countertops and kitchen cabinet doors, light switches, and sinks and faucets. Wiping these areas to a shine will also present a clean and sanitary environment.
Tackling Germs at your Senior Center
For the washrooms, you want to tackle the toilet and sink areas. Make sure all surfaces are addressed in a detailed and careful manner, catching the nooks and crannies where germs can hide, but also shining all the chrome sections, windows and mirrored areas, and those light switches so as to provide a cheery and clean wash facility.
An Overall Clean at the Senior Living Community
Ensuring a clean environment in your senior living community includes addressing carpet and upholstery cleanliness, and any stains that show up, on a routine basis. On this list should also be effectively eliminating odors and keeping your facility fresh and smelling nice.
Maintaining a clean senior living facility should also encompass sanitizing and deodorizing the gathering and communal areas like dining areas, game rooms, movie rooms, and other recreational locations. Keeping these areas tidy and wiped free of crumbs and fingerprints can help make your place shine and provide a comfortable place for everyone to gather.
Areas that are frequently utilized and support high traffic need to be constantly looked after, and kept clean and polished to provide a consistent level of appearance. It’s important to portray a professional appearance at the same time providing an inviting and homey setting for your residents and their guests.
Above All, Good Hygiene & Safety
On top of your cleaning routine, remember to provide good hygiene and sanitizer stations that are always stocked. Also, to offer a healthy and germ-free indoor environment, consider HEPA filters to remove dust and dirt from the inside air everyone breathes.
Furthermore, always make sure your senior living residence is picked up and organized. Keeping all walkways, halls, and gathering spaces clear of debris and refuse will provide not only a clean environment but a safe one as well. Picking up throughout the day can make a big difference to keep your place looking excellent.
