Any working environment needs to be clean and hygienic, which is why companies often employ commercial cleaning companies in Toronto to take care of the job for them. While some of the benefits of office and medical building cleaning services are the same, there are a few distinct differences in the types of cleaning services that they offer.

Disinfecting vs cleaning

A commercial office space and a medical office space both require cleaning, but a healthcare provider will require more disinfecting than an office space. With cleaning, the physical dirt, dust and debris are removed, and with disinfecting the bacteria that is left behind from the dirt is also removed. In a medical facility, there are usually more germs due to sick people within the building. To ensure that germs aren’t spread to other patients, staff and guests, more disinfecting is needed.

Cleaning of equipment & surfaces

Within an office environment, equipment such as printers, desks and kitchen appliances are common. A medical building cleaning company will make sure that more time and attention is paid to disinfecting all surfaces, especially in patient areas.  It’s important the correct cleaning detergents are used for the needs of the medical centre.

Which cleaning services stay the same?

There are, however, a number of cleaning services that apply to both office environments and healthcare facilities. A commercial cleaning company such as M.C. Janitorial Systems will take care of the following in both instances:

  • Cleaning and sanitizing the entrance, communal areas, workspaces, kitchens and bathrooms
  • Wiping down and dusting of all surfaces within the building
  • Cleaning windows
  • Carpet washing
  • Floor cleaning and polishing
  • Vacuuming and sweeping
  • Removing garbage and emptying dustbins
