Oxfordshire Carpet Cleaning have a range of specialised services aimed at hospitals, health centre's and health clinics. Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) are one of the most pressing issues facing our health services today, Department of Health figure state that one in 10 patients acquires an HAI whilst in its care and those who do, stay in care more than 3 times longer than the average patient placing an even greater burden on healthcare budgets. This figure increases significantly for people who are already immunocompromised by old age or ill-health.
Carpets in healthcare establishments can have a particularly large task loaded onto them and have to take a high level of abuse ranging from constant footfall from both patients and staff and a significant number of wheelchairs and trolleys with narrow wheels that compress dirt & grime deep into the carpet fibres.
Healthcare establishments, most notably in your public areas, form a lasting impression on customers, a dirty worn carpet or that musty smell from unclean carpets will be noticed immediately and is highly unlikely to leave a favourable impression with patients & their families as well as your own staff.
A clean, well maintained carpet will provide a healthier environment for your patients and staff and may actually reduce the number of HAI acquired illnesses in your facility.
Your public areas carpets should be vacuumed once or twice daily and professionally cleaned as often as every month for extremely busy establishments. This may seem like an extravagance, but consider the alternative of buying and laying a new carpet every couple of year due to lack of a proper maintenance regime. Our hot water extraction carpet cleaning is among the best in the industry and is the method recommended by carpet manufacturers.
After cleaning , we would also highly recommend applying an anti-microbial treatment on the carpets of health related establishments, these are particularly good at dealing with MRSA & C Diff, Staphylococcus, Salmonella, Pseudomonas, E.Coli. and mould, mildew & pathogenic fungal spores among others and once applied to your carpet will provide a continued sustained protection for an extended period of time.
