Reliable & Professional Health Care Cleaning
We appreciate that infections and viruses are more prevalent in a medical setting and it is important to be able to mitigate the risk to ensure the health of you, your staff, patients and visitors.
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has clear guidelines outlining requirements for hospital cleaning and the assessment of hospital cleanliness against the national specifications of cleanliness. The Code of Practice on the prevention and control of infections, under the Health & Social Care Act 2008, states that good infection prevention (including cleanliness) is essential to ensure people who use Health & Social Care services receive safe and effective care.
These regulations state, amongst other things, that appropriate cleaning methods, products & equipment are used. At Cklip Commercial Cleaning, we understand the importance of using the correct hospital cleaning processes, products & equipment, we also have the documentation to support their use in each environment. This includes the correct storage & handling of cleaning products and equipment on site, which is also covered under the CQC standards.
A focus on Health & Safety is always at the forefront of our work in this sector. We understand the need for our cleaning operatives to take precautions when working in environments where patients and medical teams are present.
Each cleaning contract has a job-specific risk assessment & method statement, to ensure all tasks are carried out in line with Health & Safety requirements, infection control, using colour-coded cleaning equipment to avoid cross-contamination and our staff are fully trained in COSHH and the safe use and preparation of cleaning & disinfection products.
Working to Minimise Infection
Clean healthcare facilities improve morale and reduce the strain that comes from working in a complex and demanding environment.
We understand that efficient, thorough disinfection & cleaning is critical in helping to prevent Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs). The use of disposable mop heads and cloths to reduce the harbouring of germs are just two things we do to ensure full compliance. Our healthcare cleaning services ensure that our well-trained operatives adhere to the best practice cleaning procedures in compliance with the National Standards of Healthcare Cleanliness.
We deliver the highest standards of cleaning in both clinical and non-clinical areas such as, wards, operating theatres, consultation rooms, industrial kitchens, rest areas & ward kitchens, canteens & snack areas, corridors, reception & waiting areas, toilets and washrooms.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the general principle & definition of cleaning to the National Standards of Healthcare Cleanliness
Cleaning involves ‘fluid’ - usually detergent, water & ‘friction’ - the mechanical or physical removal of organic matter including dirt, debris, blood & bodily fluids. Micro-organisms are removed rather than killed. Effective cleaning leaves a surface or equipment visibly clean. This alone may be enough in foyers, offices, corridors & other ‘low risk’ environments, the disinfection is also needed in many healthcare environments. Cleaning is a pre-requisite to effective disinfection. Some disinfectants are readily deactivated by organic matter.
What is a manual cleaning action?
Large and flat surfaces should be cleaned using an ‘S’ shape motion, starting at the point furthest away, then overlapping slightly but without going back over the area to avoid recontamination.
What is the general principle & definition of disinfecting to the National Standards of Healthcare Cleanliness?
Disinfection is a process of eliminating or reducing harmful micro-organisms from inanimate objects and surfaces. Sterilisation is the process of killing all micro-organisms through physical or chemical means. Sterilisation is used only for critical items, i.e., objects or instruments that enter or penetrate sterile tissues, cavities, or the bloodstream. Decontamination, cleaning, disinfection & sterilisation are all decontamination processes. In the context of the environment or non-critical equipment (i.e., equipment or devices that are in contact with intact skin only), the term usually refers to cleaning & disinfection, either using separate cleaning & disinfecting agent in a two-step process, or a ‘2 in 1’ product that cleans and disinfects in one step.
What is a disinfectant contact time?
A disinfectant must be in contact with a surface for a specified time and the surface needs to remain wet for that time. Staff should know the contact times for the disinfectants in use locally. Products with realistic contact times for use in a busy healthcare environment should be selected.
