Cleaning of old people's and retirement homes
Task of cleaning old people's and retirement homes
Building cleaning in old people's and retirement homes includes, in particular, regular maintenance cleaning tasks, for example:
- Floor cleaning
- Sanitary cleaning
- Bed cleaning & bed service
- Stairs cleaning
- Glass & window cleaning
- Kitchen cleaning
- Dishwashing & kitchen services
- Caretaker service & green area maintenance
- Winter service
During maintenance cleaning, attention must be paid to the special situation of the home and its residents: In order to avoid constantly changing faces, it is advisable to employ friendly and sensitive permanent staff to whom the residents can establish a relationship. It should also be carefully considered whether a highly polished floor is the right choice - it can easily be mistaken for wetness and smoothness. Especially with older people, insecurity and changed walking behavior can lead to slips and injuries despite a sure-footed floor.
Vital in nursing homes and old people's homes: careful hygiene
When cleaning nursing homes or old people's homes, particular attention must be paid to hygienic aspects. The cleaning of nursing homes and old people's homes is based on the “Guideline for Hospital Hygiene and Infection Prevention” published by the Robert Koch Institute and the list of services drawn up in consultation with the home. Depending on the specifications of the specification of services, disinfectant cleaning is carried out at the required frequency, for example in sanitary rooms or when cleaning the floor. In order to rule out cross-contamination, color coding is used for precisely defined cleaning areas. This ensures that the correct cleaning equipment and agents are used for each cleaning area.
