What did the client need?

University Hospital Wales, situated in Cardiff, plays a vital role in providing healthcare services to the community. Maintaining a clean and hygienic environment is imperative within the healthcare sector to ensure the well-being of both patients and medical staff. Recognising this, University Hospital Wales sought the expertise of APT, a renowned name in cleaning and restoration services, specifically tailored for healthcare settings. This case study unveils the systematic process through which APT delivered top-notch healthcare cleaning services, underscoring their commitment to impeccable hygiene standards.

University Hospital Wales required a comprehensive healthcare cleaning solution, focusing on an in-depth cleaning of two rooms and a plant room within the facility. The client emphasised the importance of hospital cleaning, healthcare cleaning services, medical cleaning services, and clinical cleaning services to ensure a sanitary environment conducive to patient care. It was imperative to conduct a thorough deep clean in these areas, adhering to the highest healthcare standards.

How did we approach it?

APT’s approach to healthcare cleaning involves meticulous planning, thorough inspections, and a commitment to safeguarding both personnel and equipment. The process began with a comprehensive inspection of the designated areas, followed by the establishment of secure working zones. Poly sheeting covers were employed to either protect or move the client’s equipment, ensuring its safety and integrity throughout the cleaning process.

What was the solution?

The solution centered on a methodical cleaning approach designed to meet and exceed healthcare cleaning standards. It involved the following key steps:

  1. Spray-Wiping Pipework and Ducting: All pipework and ducting were meticulously cleaned to remove bird guano, a potential source of contamination. This step was crucial to ensure a sanitary environment within the healthcare facility.

  2. Surface Cleaning and Sanitization: All surfaces within the designated areas were cleaned and treated as per the requirements discussed during a recent site meeting. APT utilised our own Ultraclean MB & and Dekon products, chosen for their efficacy in addressing the specific contamination issues in the healthcare setting.

  3. Contaminated Waste Removal: A critical component of the solution involved the safe and thorough removal of contaminated waste, ensuring that all potentially harmful materials were disposed of in compliance with healthcare regulations.

APT Commercial Chemicals – our sister company provide a wide range of Commercial & Industrial Cleaning Chemicals.
