CLEANING PATIENT ROOMS

NOTE: We will assist in the general cleaning of your office; it is up to the individual practitioner to monitor infectious disease control and maintain a sterile environment. We have developed very specific techniques to clean patient rooms in a medical building. These techniques are required in order to clean the patient room.

The following items are used when cleaning a patient room in a medical complex
