Customized Medical Cleaning Services
While many of the regulations surrounding healthcare cleaning are the same,
we recognize that no two healthcare facilities have the same needs. So,
we work with you to develop a customized cleaning plan and also a schedule
that meets your needs. We also always strive to go above and beyond your
expectations. In addition, our medical cleaning crews are available 24/7
to ensure your medical facility is always clean. Many medical facilities
prefer we clean at night, after the last patient has gone for the day.
We can also be discreet with our cleaning during daytime hours. It’s
all based on what your facility needs.
You focus on your patients’ health, and we’ll focus on the clean. At ServiceMaster Clean PBM, we’ll ensure reception areas, patient exam rooms, resident rooms, common areas, and restrooms are all properly cleaned and sanitized. We are happy to supply you with local references.
