Care Home Cleaning Products & Janitorial Services

When it comes to nursing and care homes, we know that hygiene is high up on your list of priorities. From adhering to strict CQC regulations to following National Standards of Healthcare Cleanliness, it’s all about keeping staff and residents safe.

The Importance of Correct Cleaning Practices In Care Homes

Whether you’re a care provider on the frontlines or working hard to run a nursing home, safety and cleanliness are two highly important factors. This is for a number of reasons, from keeping residents safe to preventing the transmission of infections and viruses.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has strict rules and guidelines in place when it comes to cleanliness, stating that your premises must be clean and secure, and that you must actively work to prevent the spread of infection. They also require that the level of cleanliness is constantly monitored, and when disposing of hazardous waste and materials, guidelines and legislation are followed.

The emergence of COVID-19 highlighted the importance of correct cleanliness in care homes, and as a result, many care providers sought to quickly overhaul and improve their hygiene routines.

There are many moving parts when it comes to keeping a care home clean, as everyday surfaces can quickly become contaminated by germs which may lead to infection. Toilets, floors and waste bins require constant disinfection, whilst considerations must be made when it comes to soft furnishings, bedding and furniture.

At Janitorial direct, we offer a wide range of essential washroom services. We'll install your chosen products and maintain them for you, giving you more time to focus on running your care home. 


How can I prevent employee absence in a care home?

Viruses and bacteria can spread quickly in a care home. As staff come into direct contact with medical and hazardous waste on a regular basis, it’s vital that your organisation has a robust plan in place to maximise the safety of your employees.

You should ensure that all employees have a complete understanding of the legislation surrounding the disposal of hazardous waste, and a clean-up procedure for different types of contaminants.

Correct keeping of cleaning records can help you to track and identify any areas of weakness early on, whilst giving you an option to improve and adapt when it comes to preventing staff from taking time off sick.

Why is safe and easy disposal of clinical waste important in nursing?

CQC have strict regulations when it comes to the correct disposal of clinical waste, and these guidelines are designed to prevent staff infection and injury. This waste may include:

  • Contaminated PPE
  • Sharps and needles
  • Chemical substances
  • Medicines and drugs
  • Dressings and bandages
  • Catheter bags
  • Incontinence products and nappies

All organisations that handle clinical and hazardous waste must have a plan in place for correct handling, as incorrect disposal can lead to serious injury and illness. Needles and sharps are especially risky as they can carry bloodborne diseases.

Do you provide "Duty of Care" certificates?

Yes every service we provide for collection of waste, we provide a "Duty of Care" certificate it automatically is emailed to customers.

What is a "Duty of Care" certificate?

It is legal confirmation that you as an organisation are fulfilling you obligation with collection and safe carriage and disposal of waste of waste.

Do you provide transfer notes?

Yes, we provide "Transfer notes "for the classification of waste and / or the volume of certain waste that requires them.
