Health & Safety is the most important factors to consider when running a cleaning company. We always follow Health & Safety Legislation. We give our staff ongoing training and supply them with all protective clothing suitable for the job. We don’t believe that sending in more cleaners than needed will get better results, but we have found that with ongoing training keeps our cleaners up to date with regulations, procedures and abilities to be confident to carry out tasks alone, so less staff are needed to cover the job.

What makes scrubs cleaning services different from almost every other commercial cleaning company?
All scrubs cleaning services cleaners are trained to achieve the CQC (Care Quality Commission) ‘Clinical Standard’ demanded by medical establishments such as hospitals, clinics and nursing homes, so cleaning standards are far higher than those achieved by the majority of cleaning companies.
Scrubs cleaning services started life in 2010 as most of our cleaning work used to be clinical premises such as doctor’s surgeries and clinics. As we took on more mixed premises such as offices, However we still clean many clinical premises and so all of our cleaning staff (including office cleaning staff) are regularly trained to clean to a high clinical standard.
This makes us no more expensive than a normal cleaning company – but it does help us do a better job which saves you money. How?
A recent study of 2,500 UK businesses showed sick leave accounts for nearly 90% of a company’s absence bill, which also includes absentees such as compassionate leave and industrial action. Sick days now account for £28.8 billion of the UK’s overall £31.1 billion absence bill.
While scrubs cleaning services cannot stop office sickness totally, by a sustained program of clinical standard cleaning – we can dramatically reduce the number of sick days taken by staff, thereby saving you money and increasing efficiency
Bacteria spread quickly which can result in staff absences
Early 2013, a team launched a study in one of the University of Arizona offices involving several dozen coworkers in good health and one “sick” colleague carrying a virus mimicking the flu. Within 12 hours, more than 50 percent of surfaces were contaminated with the virus. They found the office telephone is possibly the dirtiest item in the office with an average of 25, 127 microbes per square inch compared with the office toilet seat which has around 40 germs per square inch. Streptococcus, MRSA and Pseudomonas were just three of around 500 types of bacteria commonly found in offices
