Deciding to place a loved one in a nursing home facility is a major decision, and you want to ensure that your nursing home always looks clean and welcoming. Unfortunately, many cleaning services do not fully understand what goes on for keeping a nursing facility clean. This has led to an unfair idea that nursing homes are not a great environment for people’s loved ones. This is an unfair characterization, and Imperial Cleaning works hard to ensure that residents, guests, and staff feel safe and comfortable in a nursing home while also abiding by laws and restrictions put in place for medical care.
The Imperial Cleaning Difference
Imperial Cleaning provides you with a safe and healthy space for your residents. We understand that long-term care is a specialized profession with its own rules and regulations which is why Imperial Cleaning always keeps up to date on the latest strategies and regulations for cleaning assisted living facilities. Imperial Cleaning realized that senior living facilities also have their own cleaning and disinfecting needs that can vary by location which is why we work closely with you to ensure everything stays as clean as possible. Because of this, your environment will be healthy, clean, and safe for everyone who enters your facility.
Far too often, we see fly-by-night cleaning services that pop up and say they can offer deep cleaning for residential facilities. Sadly, these cleaning services do not understand the intricate and delicate nature that nursing facilities require. From using the wrong types of cleaners to not cleaning in the right way, these cleaning services can spell disaster for residents and facilities alike. That’s why we ensure our employees stick to and fully understand the rules and regulations for cleaning these facilities. When we do things by the book, we can deliver the best results possible while keeping you up to date on your required protocols. Imperial Cleaning views itself as your partner rather than a cleaning service, and we work together to ensure your facility is up and running as it should be.
Unlike the other guys, Imperial Cleaning knows what a nursing facility must do to stay as clean as possible. Every detail is crucial to ensuring that your facility is as clean as possible. Rather than relying on the same cleaning processes that we use in other locations, we work with you to create the right plan for your facility.
Our unique process relies on the fundamentals of cleaning and disinfection for a nursing care facility. Far too often, Imperial Cleaning gets requests from facilities that’ve trusted the wrong company. When this happens, our employees go in and scrub everything possible to ensure a clean-living facility you can be proud of. Some rooms we focus on include:
Resident rooms - Imperial Cleaning believes that resident rooms are one of the most important aspects of cleaning a nursing facility. This is where people receive treatment, sleep, and sometimes eat. Many spend a lot of their waking hours in their rooms as well. Because of this, we ensure that each resident’s room is cleaned from top to bottom, ranging from light fixtures to baseboards. We follow the highest standard in cleaning protocol to ensure that each room is neat as a pin and meets health agency requirements for nursing facilities. Each room is regularly deep cleaned to keep them as healthy as possible. Imperial Cleaning believes that health starts with a clean room.
Kitchen – Kitchens are a minefield for healthcare. They frequently attract insects and rodents which means that everything needs to be regularly checked and scrubbed thoroughly. Our cleaning services will have kitchens looking like new again as we take the time to ensure everything meets both healthcare and food handling requirements. We also make sure to check common areas where critters like to lurk as well as check appliances to make sure they’re u to code. This full-service approach means you’ll be able to rest easy knowing that you’ll see something the moment it goes wrong.
Lobbies – Your lobby is every person’s first impression of you. Rather than allowing it to become dingey or gross, we take the time to make sure it’s always neat and clean. The Imperial Cleaning approach requires each room to look wonderful and be clean, so we regularly deep clean your lobbies. Just like with our other room services, we also examine anything in the room to ensure it’s in working condition and up to code. This allows you the peace of mind that comes with knowing someone else has your back and is working with you to keep your nursing facility clean, safe, and healthy.
Rec Room – You most likely have some sort of recreation room that allows residents to congregate with one another and complete activities. Imperial Cleaning understands the value of residents getting together to have some fun. Because of this, we work hard to ensure rec rooms are clean as well as organized. This allows seniors of all backgrounds to congregate in a safe and healthy environment they’ll love to be in while allowing them to make social connections they will cherish for the rest of their lives. Imperial Cleaning treats nursing care residents like family, allowing them to live in an environment even their children and grandchildren will love as well as making for a great place for friends to come hang out and spend the day together.
Because we understand the importance of even the smallest details, Imperial Cleaning has developed a thorough cleaning process for senior living facilities. Again, we work with you to create the right plan for your business. Some of the things Imperial Cleaning helps your senior living facility improve on include:
- Infection prevention
- Residential environment improvement
- Increased overall resident satisfaction
- Increased performance metrics
- Risk reduction due to consistently checking everything in the facility
Our Core Values
Our resident-centered strategy was developed by only using the industry standard practices and procedures. Because of this, we ensure each location is clean and healthy to allow your residents to have the best care possible. Our policies are dictated by:
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
- Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPPA)
- Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
- Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
Because of this, imperial Cleaning’s cleaning plans meet the highest standard of care for people living in an assisted living facility. Rather than relying on one agency to dictate our cleaning strategies, imperial Cleaning relies on several. This ensures that each aspect of the senior-living facility is clean and meets the highest standards in the industry.
imperial Cleaning understands that each senior living facility comes with its own unique layout and amenities. Because of this, Imperial Cleaning works with you to create a customized plan that fits your needs. Whether you need someone to come clean resident rooms and common areas or focus exclusively on the kitchen and dining areas is up to you. Rooms we have focused on both jointly and exclusively for past clients include:
- Common areas
- Resident rooms
- Kitchen and dining areas
Some senior living facilities will require all these rooms to get cleaned, and imperial Cleaning is more than ready to take on these tasks. However, others just need specialized help, and we can help there too. Regardless of what you need, imperial Cleaning will come up with the perfect plan and schedule to fit your needs.
Why Get Professional Cleaning?
One of the biggest things we get asked is why our services are necessary for spaces where the highest level of care is already followed. We help senior living facilities:
Control infection – Infections are sadly common for one of our most vulnerable populations which is why we work hard to provide infection control for our clients. This means that residents are happier and healthier while senior living managers and owners spend fewer resources on fighting illness.
Risk Assessment – Although senior living facilities are created with safety in mind, that doesn’t mean risks are not present. The Imperial Cleaning team works with you by assessing risks that need to be addressed to protect both residents and staff. All spaces are examined daily which means issues are spotted before they become dangerous. Our risk assessment procedures allow you to address things the moment they come up.
Resident Experience – A clean and healthy living space makes for a better resident experience. This allows both Imperial Cleaning and you to create deeper, more meaningful relationships with your residents to keep everyone safe and sound and a clean environment they’ll love.
Imperial Cleaning understands the process to keep senior living facilities clean for residents and guests alike. While they all have their own challenges, these facilities all have one goal: keeping everyone safe and healthy. Imperial Cleaning can make that happen for you. With over 28 years in the industry, we have extensive knowledge, industry-leading processes, and innovative equipment to help keep your senior living facility clean. We’ll work with you to create a customized cleaning plan that meets your needs. We stop at nothing to deliver the highest standards of cleaning every time.
