How Janitorial Services Keep Your Dental Office Safe

The ways in which janitorial services keep your dental office safe are numerous. In today’s blog, the experts here at Select Janitorial outline how a clean, safe, and COVID-conscious workplace benefits both your employees and dental patients.

#1: Dental Office Janitorial Services Let Your Staff Focus On What They Do Best

One of the primary benefits of janitorial services for your dental office is how they let your staff focus on what they do best.

Let’s face it: the government-endorsed enhanced cleaning checklist is comprehensive, to say the least. That means that, to follow it to a T, your staff will need to take valuable hours out of their day in order to learn how to follow the steps thoroughly, execute said steps, and repeat them in-depth multiple times per day.

When you hire Select Janitorial to do what we do best, you, in turn, give your employees the gift of time to do what they do best: conducting expert dental services for your patients.

#2: Our Team is Experienced in the Level of Detail Needed for Medical-Grade Sanitization

Select Janitorial has been providing the highest-quality cleaning and janitorial services for post-construction buildings, restaurants, and, of course, dental offices across British Columbia for over 20 years.

As such, we hire only the most conscientious janitors on Vancouver Island, Fraser Valley, and the Interior to ensure that your commercial cleaning needs are met on time, every time.

Many dental professionals who hire existing employees to take over janitorial services believe that they are successfully completing the Canadian government’s recommended “deep cleans”, only professional janitorial staff like us here at Select Janitorial have the expertise, resources, and tried-and-tested products available to complete a deep clean as is intended.

This guaranteed deep clean gifts both your employees and your patience with the degree of health and safety that they deserve.

#3: Select Janitorial’s Team Goes Beyond Just a Basic Deep Clean 

Our team consistently goes above and beyond to provide more than just your standard deep clean.

This includes knowing the proper dilution of each sanitization product for each unique surface, the time required to deep clean each area of the lavatory, and the ability to recognize any concerns regarding the time allotted (for example, needing more time to dedicate it to certain high-touch areas in the lavatory).

This includes focusing on high-touch point areas like:

  • Toilets
  • Door handles
  • Faucets
  • Tables
  • Countertops
  • Chairs
  • Light switches
  • Electronics
  • Cabinets

We also ensure to thoroughly clean commonly forgotten touch points such as blinds, baseboards, and fabrics, all of which can harbour dangerous germs, dust, and pollen.

#4: Dental Office Janitorial Services Instills Trust in Your Patients and Creates a Great Environment for Your Team

Outsourcing your scheduled cleans to a professional janitorial company guarantees not only a better-smelling, better-looking dental office, but also the trust of your patients when they enter a sparkling clean dental area time after time.

Employees will also be grateful to know that they can focus on their job without sacrificing having a safe, COVID-conscious, and clean workspace.

Returning to the Office Post-COVID – How To Keep Your Space Safe

Health and safety in the workplace have never been more vital than now amid returning to the office post-COVID.

So what can you do to keep both your customers and employees safe? Start with cleaning, courtesy of the team here at Select Janitorial. Here is how we strive to keep safety, health, and cleanliness a priority for your business… hassle-free!

#1: Sanitizing High-Touch Areas

Especially if you own or work in a medical office of any kind, a simple wipe-down or spot-cleaning of surfaces by your team won’t suffice, especially post-COVID. That’s why our professional janitorial team is trained in ensuring your space is safe for everyone. 

We have the knowledge, tools, and, of course, experience to adhere to strict post-pandemic cleaning protocols.

Sanitation includes:

  • Both cleaning and disinfecting high-traffic and high-touch areas
  • Cleaning with the intent of mitigating the spread of germs

Commonly-sanitized areas include doorknobs, faucets, toilets, and countertops.

#2: Clearing Away Remnants of 2020

As the beginning of the usual cold and flu season nears, keeping your business clean becomes even more important.

Alongside COVID-19, this makes cleaning especially important. This includes clearing away remnants of 2020!

Remnants of 2020 that could pose the threat of germs include dust, garbage, personal items, and anything left over from 2020 that has been forgotten by either customers or staff. This is even more relevant for businesses that have been closed for long periods of time throughout either 2020 or 2021.

#3: Instill Confidence in Staff With a Clean Workplace

Your staff are the lifeblood of your business: That’s why it’s crucial to instill confidence in staff via a clean workplace.

A clean, safe, and COVID-conscious workplace works to foster trust post-pandemic and assists in back-to-work efforts.

Whether you have hundreds or thousands of people coming through your business, your employees are counting on you to maintain a safe and healthy workplace for them so they can bring their best to your customers, both this year and every year thereafter.

Invest in our variety of janitorial services for a clean you can trust when returning to the office post-COVID.

Commercial Cleaning Checklist: Spots Your Janitor Won’t Miss!

Here at Select Janitorial, we wanted to provide a commercial cleaning checklist: spots your janitor won’t miss!

Select Janitorial has been providing the highest-quality cleaning and janitorial services for post-construction buildings, restaurants, offices, and more across British Columbia for over 20 years. As such, we hire only the most conscientious janitors on Vancouver Island, Fraser Valley & the Interior to ensure that your commercial cleaning needs are met every time.

As such, we know the ins and outs of any good commercial cleaning checklist. Here are three crucial spots that your Select Janitorial janitor won’t miss.

Commercial Cleaning Checklist Item #1: Standard Areas

Standard areas that require a thorough clean (particularly during COVID-19) include the following:

  • Tables
  • Toilets
  • Sink handles
  • Doorknobs
  • Light switches
  • Electronics
  • Countertops 
  • Cabinets

Each and every one of those high-touch surface areas require a combination of dusting, vacuuming, sanitizing, and/or mopping. In addition, frequent and thorough garbage removal is advised in order to keep your commercial space looking and smelling fresh.

Commercial Cleaning Checklist Item #2: Hidden Areas

“Hidden areas” include surfaces that non-professional janitors or in-house staff miss more often than not.

Specifically, common examples of hidden areas include windows, blinds, baseboards, the tops of furniture, surface-polishing, and the deep-cleaning of fabric surfaces within your commercial space.

Odours and bacteria linger in fabrics and in the air if all of these requirements are not met consistently. Having professional janitors come in a minimum of once per week will work to mitigate allergens, alleviate general breathing problems (such as asthma, which can be worsened by dust), and stop the spread of germs between staff or between customers.

Commercial Cleaning Checklist Item #3: Medical-Grade Sanitization

Particularly important for public lavatories, medical-grade sanitization should only be carried out by janitorial professionals. 

While many companies who currently conduct their commercial cleaning in-house believe that they are executing “deep cleans”, the reality is that only professional janitorial staff have the expertise, resources, and products available to complete an authentic deep-clean.

This includes knowing the proper dilution of each sanitization product for each unique surface, the time required to deep clean each area of the lavatory, and the ability to recognize any concerns regarding the time allotted (for example, needing more time in order to dedicate it to certain high-touch areas in the lavatory).

In short, don’t settle for mediocre “deep cleans”: reach out today to book the real thing.

In 1998, the founder of Select Janitorial, Ken Swift, decided to dedicate himself to assisting a friend who was, at the time, struggling with his janitorial business. Through this experience, Ken learned just how many companies here in BC were in need of consistent, quality, and reliable janitorial services.

This community-minded approach is continued today: the Select Janitorial team is a long-time supporter of local charities, including, but not limited to, the Cridge Centre for the Family and the Victoria Epilepsy and Parkinson’s Centre. We also work alongside our employees to foster stable, long-term employment within each and every community we work in.
