Specialised cleaning services: why they matter for the aesthetics industry
Have you ever been to a spa, had your nails done professionally or had a cosmetic procedure at a local clinic?
How would you have felt if you had not been greeted by an impeccably clean and fresh-smelling environment?
The aesthetics industry deals with everything from hair and beauty salons to spas and cosmetic specialists. If these kinds of centres are not impeccably clean, it can lead you to doubt whether they are somewhere you wish to request.
In this blog, we look at the reasons why specialised cleaning services matter for the aesthetics industry.
What is included in specialised cleaning?
Specialised cleaning services are closely related to “clinical cleaning services” and when done well complement the work done by clinical cleaners. Let’s look at what these different services are.
A clinical cleaner specialises in cleaning equipment and machinery that is bespoke for your particular area within the aesthetics industry.
Clinical cleaners are trained to clean and disinfect to the highest standards of quality and safety. Whether that be treatment beds, medical equipment or beauty tools.
Specialised cleaning will provide many of the same services that you might associate with regular commercial cleaning. They will vacuum carpets and clean floors, remove refuse, clean bathrooms, and communal areas (like waiting rooms and staff rooms) and clean windows.
However, they will also approach your “regular” cleaning in a different way. Refuse removal might include the removal (and safe disposal) of clinical waste for example. Or perhaps your treatment room floor will require more than a simple vacuum and mop to ensure the appropriate level of sanitation and therefore, infection control.
Although, at Cleaning Technique, we do not disinfect medical tools, or specialised machinery like Clinical Cleaners would, we certainly ensure that “regular” cleaning is conducted in a way that adheres to the Care Quality Commissions requirements for clinical environments. Our team work in conjunction with your clinical cleaners, ensuring you get the best result for your aesthetic clinic.
We provide specialised cleaning services to clinics and healthcare settings
Here are several reasons why specialised cleaning and clinical cleaning services matter in the aesthetics industry:
Sterile and Sanitary Environment:
In the aesthetics industry, maintaining a sterile and sanitary environment is of utmost importance. After all, you are coming into close contact with people and potentially may be breaking the surface of their skin to perform treatments. This means the environment needs to be as clean as possible.
Whether it’s a spa, salon, or medical aesthetics facility, specialised cleaning services that adhere to specific cleaning protocols and standards are necessary to create a clean and germ-free environment.
The Legal Implications:
As such the aesthetics industry is often subject to regulations and guidelines concerning cleanliness, hygiene, and infection control. Specialised clinical cleaning services can ensure that the facility meets the necessary requirements. The Health and Social Care Act 2008 (as quoted by the Care Quality Commission), requires healthcare premises to be ‘clean, safe and suitable for use’.
By partnering with a specialised cleaner, aesthetics businesses can have peace of mind, knowing that they are maintaining compliance with industry standards and regulations.
At Cleaning Technique we understand the standards set out by the Care Quality Commission, so all the cleaning our operatives undertake in an aesthetic clinic is conducted according to these standards.
Protection of Delicate Surfaces and Equipment:
Aesthetic facilities often have delicate surfaces that require specific cleaning methods and so require specialised cleaning. For example, high-end spa furniture, or treatment beds may have sensitive materials or finishes.
Our cleaning team has the knowledge and experience to clean and maintain these surfaces without causing damage. We use appropriate techniques and cleaning agents to preserve the aesthetics and functionality of these items, extending their lifespan and protecting the investment made by your business.
Better patient care
Finally, in the aesthetics industry, customer experience is paramount. A clean and well-maintained environment is crucial for creating a positive and welcoming atmosphere for clients. This is not only so that clients can have confidence in the service, but crucially to put those who might be nervous about undergoing treatment at ease.
Clinical cleaners can ensure that the aesthetic facility is impeccably clean, fresh-smelling, and visually appealing. This cleanliness not only enhances the overall experience for clients but also builds trust and confidence in the establishment’s professionalism and commitment to hygiene.
Clinical cleaning: maintaining a hygienic and appealing environment
Specialised cleaning services are vital for the aesthetics industry to maintain a sterile, compliant, and visually appealing environment. They bring industry-specific knowledge, expertise, and attention to detail necessary to meet the unique cleaning requirements of the aesthetics industry. By partnering with a cleaning team like ours at Cleaning Technique, aesthetics businesses can focus on their core services while ensuring a safe, sanitary, and inviting space for their clients.
