Thorough cleaning is essential in 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, as well as your staff. Clean surroundings for your facility is of utmost importance to ensure an enjoyable environment for your current patrons as well as others interested in joining your residence.

How to Clean a Senior Living Community

What Should You Focus On?

At the top of your list, you want to make sure all washrooms 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 and light switches, including giving the sinks and faucets a good scrubbing. Wiping these areas to shine will also present a clean and sanitary environment.

Tackling Germs

For the washrooms, you want to tackle the toilet and sink areas. Make sure everything is 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

Ensuring a clean environment also 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 a 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.

A Qualified Crew

Maintaining a clean senior living residence not only helps ensure a healthy environment, but provides a good quality of life for your patrons and their guests.

And a great way to help keep your senior living facility looking good every day is to hire a professional cleaning crew. The cleaning staff should be educated on any special needs, procedures, and requirements that are involved with having a presence in a sensitive and residential environment.
