Implementing a comprehensive program exactly tailored for your workplace

Instituting a "GREEN" care program

Environmentally sensitive, or "green" cleaning is about more than protecting the future, it is about effecting the present. Green cleaning can have a positive impact on many aspects of health care and all other facilities without raising costs.

The following are just some of the benefits:

  • Public health
  • Patient care
  • Worker safety and satisfaction

Cleaning methods. Consider alternate cleaning methods. Lets take for instance... floor cleaning techniques that require less water than traditional ones. This technique helps to conserve this important natural resource and reduce costs. These methods can be more efficient, use fewer (if any) chemicals and can be more ergonomically sound. Also, because a floor cleaned with little water dries faster, the risk of slips and falls is reduced.

Microfiber mops. Microfiber mop heads are made of very dense fibers that can hold six times their weight in water and are positively charged to attract dust. These mops have been studied extensively and found to be very efficient in their use of water and cleaning solution; they are also easy to use and help prevent cross-contamination between patient rooms, as a new mop head is used for each room. Cost comparisons show them to be economical (UC Davis study report).

Cleaning products. Switching to green cleaning products. A simple way is to choose Green Seal recommended or certified products. (Green Seal recommended products are those the organization believes are environmentally responsible based on data provided by manufacturers; Green Seal certified products, which carry the Green Seal mark, have been analyzed by Green Seal itself.) Green Seal is in the process of developing an environmental standard for floor finishes and compatible strippers.

Preventative maintenance. Proper use of floor mats at entryways can prevent up to 85 percent of tracked-in dirt from ever reaching floors. We can optimize your mat program.

Question: What is the single biggest misconception about restroom cleaning?

Answer: A common misconception about restroom cleaning says, “if a restroom smells good it must be clean and healthy.” However, a dirty and unhealthy restroom can be sprayed with pleasant smelling deodorants and fool our noses into thinking that the restroom environment is clean, sanitary and healthy. A pleasant smelling restroom is not necessarily a clean and healthy washroom.

The most frequently neglected areas during restroom cleaning are listed below:

  1.
Inside the door to the toilet stalls
  2.
Under lip of the toilet and urinal
  3.
Ceiling vents
  4.
Floor drains
  5.
High ledges
  6.
Light fixtures
  7.
Doorknobs and handles
  8.
Plumbing fixtures to sinks, toilets and urinals
  9.
Underneath the faucet
  10.
Difficult to reach corners of floors and walls

Question: What is FRESHX definition of a clean restroom, scientifically speaking?

Answer: A clean restroom is a neat, orderly, and healthy environment where harmful microorganisms are under control and the room is free of unwanted substances, pollutants, residues and odors. Cleaning is an activity, a process and a form of management. For instance, cleaning a restroom includes the activity of trash removal, the process of orderly filling dispensers, and management of the cleaning process including the sequence of tasks. Clean restrooms don’t just happen by accident. It takes good planning and management to provide safe, clean, and healthy restroom facilities.
