Pain Free Cleaning Methods for Hospitals

Did you know that hospital workers are especially prone to injury, particularly when cleaning floors and bathrooms that rely heavily on manual cleaning procedures? Research shows there has been a hike in workers compensation premiums by 400% for the cleaning sector, prominently in hospital and community service industries. This study suggests that hospitals have been reluctant to adopt safer less strenuous cleaning practices. A common method used in the healthcare sector is to clean using the traditional mop and bucket which is not only an outdated, and ineffective method, but it increases risk for repetitive strain. In order to tackle the most common injuries caused by cleaning, such as sprains and strains of joints and adjacent muscles, Duplex Cleaning Machines offers the Duplex steam floor scrubber and Thermoglide steam mop as they reduce OHS concerns by taking out physical strain. These versatile cleaning machines remove heavy and greasy stains on all types of difficult flooring without using harmful chemicals.

Benefits of using Duplex Cleaning Machines’ products include:
