What Do Hospitals Use to Clean Floors and Surfaces?

The stakes are high when it comes to cleaning and disinfecting hospitals, doctor’s offices, and other healthcare facilities. It is incredibly important to ensure a clean and healthy environment for patients, visitors, and the staff that work there to prevent bacteria and disease spread. Hospitals must use the best cleaning supplies and equipment specifically made for disinfecting, sanitizing, and killing germs while still maintaining efficiency.

Fortunately, here at Kentucky Cleaning Solutions, we’ve curated a list of our top performing hospital cleaning supplies – as well as some new innovative cleaning equipment – to make your job easier.  You can shop all of our healthcare products here or read below to learn more.

The Importance of Proper Hospital Cleaning:

Hospitals are particularly sensitive environments, where cleanliness is paramount to prevent the spread of infections and ensure patient safety. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 in 25 patients will acquire a healthcare-associated infection (HAI) while in the hospital. Proper cleaning and disinfection of floors, surfaces, and equipment can greatly reduce this risk.

Recommended Products and Equipment for Hospital Floors and SurfacesNeutral Germicidal Cleaner (702DN)

Hospitals use a range of cleaning products to maintain high standards of cleanliness. We recommend:

EPA Disinfectants: Disinfectants are chemical agents that are applied to surfaces to kill germs. They are used to disinfect patient rooms, furniture, countertops, and other high-touch areas. Disinfectants are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and must meet specific criteria for effectiveness and safety. You can find the Safety Data Sheets for each of our EPA Disinfectants on their product pages.

Floor Cleaners: Floor cleaners are used to clean and maintain hospital floors. These can include products for various types of flooring, such as vinyl, linoleum, tile, and carpet.

Our top recommended disinfecting hospital floor cleaner is also the concentrated Neutral Germicidal Cleaner which has a dilution ratio of 1oz to 1 gallon and is a Disinfectant, Cleaner, Mildew-stat, Fungicide, Virucide, and Deodorizer.

Floor Cleaning Equipment: Proper hospital floor cleaning equipment will ensure a sanitary and safe environment while increasing efficiency. Hospital floors often experience a lot of foot traffic and movement of equipment, supplies, and patients.

Disinfecting Equipment: For hospitals and healthcare facilities looking to invest in innovative disinfecting technology that will also provide cost savings in the long run, we recommend using ultraviolet sanitizing technology. UV cleaning equipment uses ultraviolet light to kill germs and other pathogens, as well as break down organic matter like vomit and blood. UV cleaning can be used in conjunction with cleaning chemicals and disinfectants, making it a very effective and thorough cleaning and sanitizing tool. We offer standing UV light machines as well as UV light filters that can be installed in your air filtration systems.
