Spring Cleaning your Care Home – Care Home Cleaning Schedule

We all know that keeping your care home clean is vital just like in any other business establishment but more so when your patients are particularly vulnerable. Read on to glean some commercial cleaning tips and cleaning hacks for care homes!

It's easy to prioritise the physical care of your care home patients over cleaning especially when the inevitable happens and someone phones in sick. However, keeping your care home clean can be just as important to your patients' well-being. It's all about accountability and planning, take the time to work out how long it takes to clean your care home and then set a rota that should in an ideal world be followed. Give a member of staff full accountability for maintaining your care home cleaning schedule so that any deviation from your high standards are quickly addressed by understanding who cleaned and how to put in that extra bit of time teaching your staff how to clean. It will pay dividends in the end and everyone will know where they stand. Start yourself off by making sure you give it a good Spring cleaning!

You need to by law! Under Regulation 15 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008, The law states that ‘all premises and equipment must be clean, secure, suitable for the purpose for which they are being used, properly used and properly maintained'.

And make sure your care home cleaning schedule is kept up to date if anything changes like a staff change or layout change!
