Total Clean is one of the leading healthcare and medical cleaning providers in the UK.

High quality hospital and clinic cleaning is a priority when preventing the spread of healthcare diseases. Our infection prevention cleaning service sets the standard for the prevention and control of infection. We achieve these standards by using the ATP cleaning verification system, which provides us with a tool to allow us to monitor our hospital and clinic cleaning methods on a regular basis, ensuring we keep up to date with the latest national guidance.
The needs of Health and Care providers to satisfy the cleanliness standards of the Care Quality Commission (CQC) under ‘Outcome 8 – Cleanliness and Infection Control’ is becoming increasingly important and has been the subject of much media coverage. The CQC regularly audits all Primary Care and Social Care premises under their inspection model that provides visibility as to where there are failings in standards.
The responsibility for ensuring these standards are met clearly remains with the management of the actual care provider. However, where regular cleaning is outsourced, it is increasingly important that clients and the CQC can look to companies providing these services like Total Clean for assurances that they truly understand the requirements and that their staff have been appropriately trained.
We work closely with our clients to agree a cleaning plan to include daily cleaning and regular deep cleaning, all based upon the National Specifications for Cleanliness in the NHS: Primary Care Medical and Dental Premises. We ensure the plan covers all key areas within the facility.
Our surgery cleaning service helps prevent cross-contamination and improves infection control through the execution of regular Cleaning Quality Audits to confirm the agreed plan is being strictly followed. This gives clients the confidence that the required standards of performance are being monitored and maintained.
Total Clean have recently launched a new range of bespoke cleaning products, designed specifically to meet the high standards our clients expect from us. The new range includes products specially created with healthcare facilities in mind, to enable us to ensure we continue to meet the high standards of cleanliness required in these settings.
As proof that Total Clean takes its responsibilities to service standards and the environment very seriously, it has attained a number of key registrations, memberships and associations that requires adherence to strict codes of practice and are subject to external audits in order to maintain our compliance. Total Clean is currently ISO9001 and ISO14001 accredited and recognised by The British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc). Total Clean also subscribes to CO2 Balance as a voluntary extension to its environmental policies making us a truly ‘Carbon-Neutral’ business.
