It’s essential for care and nursing homes to be easy and efficient to clean as it has to be done so often. Care homes can become quite busy as the staff occupy the residents, care for them and during visiting hours.
Part of the staff's role involves the use of lifting and manoeuvring equipment, transporting users from one room to the next and ensuring that daily activities-like mealtimes are efficiently carried out.
Ass care and nursing environments can be busy, the need for resources that are low maintenance is essential.

Every care manager knows that a systematic, structured approach to cleaning is the only way to keep infections at bay and to protect residents and carers effectively – as well as your own reputation.
Based on our extensive experience of helping hundreds of care homes like yours implement a best-practice infection control programme, here are our three guiding principles to set you on the right course.
Steve Nurdin, marketing manager at Cannon Hygiene, explains how an effective hygiene strategy can help care homes providers achieve positive customer feedback and attract new business.
The UK social care system is facing a crisis and care homes will be hit the hardest. Spending cuts and unsustainably low budgets – on average £620 a week – have led to care home providers not being able to cover day-to-day costs, according to the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA). The Guardian also recently reported that social care spending has decreased by £7bn since 2010 and English councils plan to push through another £700m in social care cuts by the end of 2019.
