The bulk of your animal hospital business is with return clients—people who are happy with your care and facilities. When they visit you, the health of their pet is paramount, so an important way of making them feel comfortable is by ensuring animal hospital cleaning is done properly. Dozens of animals come through your facility every hour. So that's dozens of sick animals who can leave germs and other problems behind, which can potentially spread odors and disease. The lobby, the examination table, and even the hallways can become dirtied with animal feces, urine, blood, and bacteria all day long. Cleaning these areas isn't just a matter of wiping them down or using a mop and pail—you must also disinfect the areas to make sure germs are killed and nothing can spread. Using the right tools allows you to quickly clean and disinfect common areas, leaving them safer and more pleasant for clients and their pets.
Accidents happen in an animal hospital, and the only way to control the spread of disease is to rapidly clean any mess as soon as it is discovered. Traditional floor cleaning methods of mops and buckets don't get the job done. Instead of picking up bacteria and viruses from the floor, a mop will do a great job of spreading an even layer of disease over the entire surface. The best way to remove dirt and germs from all your smooth floors is with Kaivac's OmniFlex AutoVac system. This compact machine takes the place of much larger floor scrubbers, but it's barely larger than a mop bucket. The AutoVac dispenses a cleaning solution that loosens soil of all types, evenly spreads it with a microfiber pad, then squeegees the moisture and vacuums it up, leaving a floor that's free of soil and germs and almost completely dry. There's no need to post "Wet Floor" signs, because the floor is dry enough to walk on as soon as you're finished. To make your cleaning job even easier in tight hallways and around sharp corners, Kaivac now makes the AutoVac in a cordless model.
Your exam tables are the one surface in your hospital that are guaranteed to come into contact with sick animals all day long. The animals will be in a delicate state, and often frightened, which means they can urinate or defecate when handled. Spray bottles with paper towels may seem like the answer to these accidents, but you'll fill bags full of paper each day, wasting roll after roll. A simpler, greener way to remove the bacteria and viruses is by using Kaivac's KaiFly cleaning system. Spray a cleaning solution onto a microfiber trowel, spread the solution with the trowel on to the surface to loosen and collect the soil, and use the specialized squeegee to remove all the moisture and contaminants. Your exam table will be clean and dry in just a few seconds, ready for the next patient.
