Healthcare Facility Maintenance During COVID-19

Healthcare Facility Maintenance During COVID-19

Infections are a risk to anyone who receives treatment in, works in or visits healthcare settings. Medical offices, clinics and hospitals are exposed to germs, bacteria and viruses daily.

Due to their natural porosity, stone and particularly grout can trap harmful microorganisms. Improper cleansing can drive contaminants further into the surface without neutralizing these little pests. Proper cleaning is the necessary first step to successful sanitization, and maintenance of these spaces is integral to patient and staff health.

As SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, mutates into more contagious strains, it’s important to remain vigilant with cleaning and disinfecting procedures.

MARBLELIFE’s key disinfection and safety protocols include:

  1. Cleaning and disinfecting equipment after each service.
  2. Applying a surface disinfectant and allowing an effective residence time before rinsing and cleaning the surface to remove dirt and debris.
  3. Providing a free building health assessment to detect areas where changes in surface treatment or maintenance processes can enhance building health.
  4. Requiring our technicians to wash their hands before entering your business and after completing each project before entering their vehicle.
  5. Instructing MARBLELIFE® employees to stay home if they feel unwell.
  6. Mandating the wearing of appropriate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) for each project.
  7. Requiring technicians and sales personnel to practice social distancing within teams and with clients.
  8. Monitoring guidance from the CDC and the EPA on product recommendations, and using products certified by the EPA as effective against SARS-CoV-2.

Dealing with Dirt and Stains
The high contrast of stained grout versus clean grout is a commonly used visual cue to assess the perceived health environment of a building. In today’s COVID-19 world, tenants, customers and patients are elevating expectations about cleanliness to a new level. MARBLELIFE® can restore dull floors and eliminate stained grout to help those who visit your facility feel more confident when it comes to your building hygiene. MARBLELIFE® goes well beyond a cleaning to address the root causes that allowed the grout or surface to become stained in the first place. We don’t just clean; we RESTORE CLEANABILITY, so that it is much easier to maintain when we are done. We will deliver better color uniformity and ease of cleaning than when the grout was new.

While others talk about deep cleaning the surface as if this is the end goal, we believe this is just the beginning. Our goal is to eliminate the need for “deep” cleaning by sealing the surface to keep everything on top where it is easier to disinfect and remove. MARBLELIFE’s proprietary COLORSeal technology restores grout color and seals the surface to not only prevent future staining, but to also make the surface resistant to the very cleaners and chemicals that created the original problem. When we are done, the surface is better-than-new with a consistent beautiful appearance that communicates how important a healthy building environment is to you, your family and your building’s guests. Plus, it looks great, and is so much easier to maintain.

Our TileLok treatments re-glaze worn ceramic to provide a fresh gloss appearance, and its durable, chemical-resistant hard coat adds the benefits of anti-mold and anti-slip properties. MARBLELIFE® TileLok is a cost-effective treatment to make your tile floors highly resistant to scuffs, scratches and yellowing. TileLok-treated surfaces are closer to liquid glass than wax, requiring no buffing to maintain.

We can evaluate your medical center and provide recommendations to help make your cleaning regimen easier and more effective. The stakes have never been higher for healthcare facility managers.
