Environmental cleaning products

Environmental cleaning products come in a variety of forms, each with unique qualities, benefits, and drawbacks regarding their possible application in healthcare.

The best practices for environmentally friendly cleaning goods (such as detergents and disinfectants) are as follows:

  • In the facility cleaning policy, create and maintain a master list of environmental cleaning products that have been approved as well as a list of authorized vendors (manufacturers and distributors).
  • Reduce the variety of environmentally friendly cleaning supplies used at the workplace. Declaring this in the facility cleanliness policy in clear terms will:
  • Processes to make environmental cleaning easier reduce the amount of training needed for cleaning staff and minimize the possibility of preparation and usage problems.

Keep environmentally friendly cleaning supplies in a way that:

  • Reduces the possibility of contamination and degradation.
  • Minimizes skin or inhalation contact with staff members.
  • Follow the manufacturer’s directions for preparing cleaning and disinfecting solutions. Higher-strength preparations or excessive dilution may put patients, employees, visitors, and the environment at needless risk.
  • Make sure to choose environmentally friendly cleaning chemicals that won’t harm the surfaces and machinery that need to be cleaned and disinfected.
  • Make sure that the creation, application, and disposal of environmental cleaning materials are covered by standard operating procedures or instructions.

Supplies for cleaning

Liquid soap, enzymatic cleansers, and detergents are examples of cleaning supplies. They eliminate organic matter (such as dirt and bodily fluids) while suspending grease or oil. Combining the cleaning chemical with water and using mechanical action (such as scrubbing and friction) accomplishes this.

Choose neutral detergents that are readily soluble in both warm and cold water (pH between 6 and 8) for the majority of environmental cleaning methods.

In the healthcare facility, there are additional specialist cleaning products that may benefit particular materials or places (such as bathroom/toilet cleaners, floor polishers, and glass cleaners). However, take into account specialist products on an individual basis, evaluating the benefits and drawbacks (for example, higher cost) as well as the facility’s capacity to guarantee proper storage, preparation, and usage.


Disinfectants should only be used after cleaning; they should not be used in place of cleaning unless the product is a detergent-disinfectant combo. Use a cleaning agent to get rid of all organic matter and grime before disinfection.

For environmental cleaning processes, low-level disinfection is usually sufficient, but there are some circumstances in which intermediate-level disinfection with sporicidal capabilities (such as C. difficile) is required. 

In healthcare facilities, typical low- and intermediate-level disinfectants that can be utilized for environmental surfaces include:

  • Compound quaternary ammonium
  • (Ethyl or Isopropyl) alcohol
  • Agents that release chlorine, such as bleach
  • More effective hydrogen peroxide

Supplies for cleaning surfaces

If a full cleaning cart is not available, portable containers of environmental cleaning materials (or solutions) and cleaning cloths can be transported either directly to the cleaning cart or on a caddy kit.

A clean cloth should be placed in each patient zone to avoid cross-contamination, and the cart should contain enough cleaning supplies to finish the necessary cleaning session. Separate clean and dirty towels. Sort clean and dirty clothes into different containers or sections of the caddy.
