A dental office, like other healthcare facilities, should remain in optimal condition all of the time. This means making sure every area of the office is kept clean. If your dental office isn’t clean, you’re going to drive patients, and sometimes even employees, away, not to mention the health risks you pose to all of them.
No business can justify putting people under such unhygienic conditions, so you need to place great emphasis on keeping everything clean. Here are the ways that you can keep your facility cleaner and why cleanliness is important to your employees and patients.
Cleaning Chemical Spills Safely
You’ll likely be dealing with some chemical spills in a dental office. All spills, especially ones with hazardous substances involved, must be cleaned as soon as possible, and you need to follow the proper cleaning procedures to keep the office safe.
OSHA has standards in place that employees should follow when cleaning chemical spills. These standards include letting everyone know about the spills when they happen and having those employees trained on how to clean them.
When cleaning these spills, make sure your staff knows about proper ventilation and what the appropriate personal protective equipment to wear is.
Use the Proper Tools to Clean Your Dental Office
It’s difficult to get a thorough and satisfying cleaning done if you don’t have the right tools for the job. Make sure your dental office has the tools needed to handle any kind of mess you could face.
On top of cleaning the areas of your dental office, you’ll also need to clean the tools you use for said cleaning. As you use these tools on dirty surfaces, these tools become dirty as well. The way to clean your tools will vary depending on which ones you’re cleaning.
Mops, for example, should be laundered daily, while disposable products, like disposable towels, can be discarded when you’re done with them.
Just be sure that there is someone on your staff team who is keeping track of what supplies you use so that you know which supplies need to be ordered.
