Environmental Cleaning

Cleaning and disinfection of the physical environment in hospitals and health care settings is important. This reduces the numbers of microorganisms that may potentially be transmitted to other individuals. Environmental cleaning is typically performed by cleaning or housekeeping services in a facility. We provide guidance, support, and resources to help you follow best practices for environmental cleaning.
