In an environment where numerous people are visiting on a daily basis, sterility and cleanliness are major factors. Otherwise, the risk of viral and bacterial disease transmission is high. Hospitals are always under intense scrutiny by the government to meet strict regulatory standards thereby ensuring not only the safety but also the comfort of their patients, the staff, and the visitors. The best way to ensure that clean air is circulating throughout the building is to use a professional hospital duct cleaning service.
One crucial element with respect to hygiene in UK hospitals is the implementation and use of ventilation systems of a specialist nature. These ventilation systems must be in compliance with the Health Technical Memorandum (HTM 03-01), the Infection Control standards (HBN 00-09), or with the Building Engineering Services Association (BESA TR19). Being in compliance ensures that bacterial, particulate, and infection levels are maintained below what is deemed to be acceptable.
In order to safeguard patients, staff, and hospital visitors, a fully compliant and thus well-maintained ventilation system serves a variety of functions in order to benefit the hospital environment
Maintaining a clean environment is paramount in any setting, but is even more crucial in a hospital. Preventing contaminated air from circulating throughout the hospital must be done whenever possible.
Hiring an approved duct cleaning service to frequently cleanse the duct system is vital in safeguarding patient wellbeing. Ducts should be thoroughly cleaned by following a strict process that ensures any contaminant buildup does not escape when the cleaning work is in process.
