Hospitals SSH specialise in the clinical cleaning of Hospitals. We clean to microbiological testing standards and currently work for many NHS Trusts. SSH took on the task of reducing MRSA & Clostridium Difficile across the South and over the last three years our expertise has effectively helped to reduce the infection by 58%, a huge decrease.

Operating Theatres

A&E Departments

Operating theatres are one of the most important areas in a hospital and we therefore believe that these areas should be given the attention they deserve. Accordingly, we have developed a proven system for the clinical deep cleaning of operating theatres helping to reduce the risk of infection.

We recognise the amount of stress and discomfort found in A&E Departments which is why we ensure that we work closely with all staff to ensure the minimum of disruption while cleaning these areas.

Recovery Areas

Once again, attention to detail is essential in these units which is why we are trusted by our clients to consistently provide a thorough cleaning service for these units.

Given that Recovery areas have such a high turnover of patients, SSH provide a proven and regular clinical deep cleaning service designed to cause the minimum disruption possible.

Intensive Care Units SSH understand that Intensive Care Units are very sensitive areas. We clinically clean these units with the upmost professionalism and discretion and we currently carry out this service in fully operational departments with great success.

Sterile & Infectious Disease Units

X-Ray Departments To avoid disruption, we arrange our rotas to clinically clean X-Ray Departments at the most quiet of times and take great care when working around delicate X-Ray/MRI scanning machines.

Hospitals We work closely with infection control staff to make sure that the most modern techniques, equipment and chemicals are used to target all known viruses and infectious diseases. As more and more of our clients insist on quarterly clinical deep cleans, our results for fighting infections such as MRSA, Clostridium Difficile & D&V speak for themselves. All works are carried out at the most convenient times for the client, helping to minimise disruption to patients & staff. We offer one-off cleans, or fixed term contracts.

Mortuaries

Beds, Furniture & Equipment

We provide cleaning for all fixed equipment in mortuaries, as well as the complete structure including drains and gullies.

To ensure a thorough clean of all furniture and equipment used in Hospitals, we erect decontamination tents where our steam cleaning process is implemented.

Pathology Laboratories & Radio Pharmacy Units We clean all laboratories and radio pharmacy units with great care, either as an initial clinical deep clean or with regular clinical cleaning.

TSSU’s & CSSD’s SSH undertake the cleaning of TSSU’s & CSSD’s out of hours, to ensure the minimum of disruption is caused to these important departments and their staff.

Ambulances Many officials believe ambulance cleaning is the “weak link” in infection control. Sometimes there is not enough time between calls for the crew to disinfect the whole ambulance so we work at agreed times to make sure no disruption is caused to the ambulance crew or to the overall running of the Ambulance Service.

Phlebotomy & Haematology Units SSH clinically clean these areas, including the removal of all blood spots and spills.

Kitchen Extraction Units & Ventilation Systems All major insurers require all extraction units to have deep cleans once a year due to the risk of fire. HVCA recommend that 2-6 hours cooking time a day will require a deep clean annually, 6-12 hours cooking time requires a 6 monthly deep clean, and 12-16 hours a day requires a quarterly deep clean.

Filter Laundry Service SSH clean all types of filters and will replace old for new if needed. As standard we also supply a spare set if required. Our filter laundry service is a continuous cycle, replacing used filters with cleans carried out once a month.

Builders Cleans

SSH have a dedicated builders cleaning team, trained to the highest standard to meet all Construction Site Regulations. SSH can carry out builders cleans throughout the duration of the project, to eliminate builders debris & dust and to maintain the cleanliness of the site. SSH can then carry out the final builders clean before the snagging process begins, to prepare the site for a sparkle/handover clean.

Due to the amount of dust and dirt thrown up by building works, uncovered windows often take the brunt of construction site debris. To solve this we have a range of specialist window cleaning equipment to deal with the most stubborn building dust and dirt.

Sparkle/Handover Cleans Sparkle/handover cleans are the final clean once a project is completed and this is the most important clean as the Construction Companies clients have an inspection to agree the handover. Being experienced construction site cleaners, SSH understand the amount of work and possible stress a handover can bring. We liaise with site managers and staff to make sure this runs as smoothly as possible.

Portacabin & Site Facilities/ Office Cleaning The cleanliness of portacabins and site offices can often be overlooked or forgotten about during a project, as the main focus is on the job in hand. We offer a very effective service to clean and maintain all offices, cabins, tea rooms & kitchens on a building site.

Guano, especially dry, is extremely hazardous to health and is something the public should never be subjected to. When dry, the excrement organisms travel through the air which, when inhaled, can result in pulmonary infection/ disease. Apart from the obvious health hazards, pigeon guano can cause destructive damage to buildings and structures due to the high acid content. SSH employees are highly trained in both the safe disposal of guano and the post disinfection process.

Ductwork, Air Conditioning & Ventilation System Cleaning This is one of the most important cleaning requirements in places such as hospitals, schools and restaurants as it is the air we breathe day in, day out. If a ductwork system is poorly maintained or neglected, the chances are that the air sent through the whole building will be unclean and contaminated. Vents in the ceiling should be clean and dust free at all times and will confirm whether the system is healthy or not. SSH clean and maintain all types of air-flow systems, whether that be in an office, shop or hospital environment.

SSH emphasise that these practices shouldn’t simply be executed at work, but also in day-to-day life, which in turn maintains and protects our planet.
