  • Each of these spaces must be cleaned and disinfected within the framework that the purpose is to protect everyone while preventing the transmission of disease from:

  • The most efficient method is to approach the cleaning and disinfection by surface, as opposed to by room, with a focus on medical-grade product use.

  • Waiting Rooms

  • A typical waiting room has several germ hot spots for people and pets that will need to be sanitized daily, including:

  • The waiting room floor is the most critical surface.

  • Given the waiting room will be the most heavily trafficked space, consider supplementing the daily cleaning and disinfection procedures with green cleaning wipes on the waiting room desk, water faucet handle, and door handle.

  • Finally, make sure to mop up and disinfect any pet accidents immediately.

  • Back Offices, Breakrooms, and Restrooms

  • Kennels and Exam Rooms

  • The critical areas will be the horizontal surfaces--floors, cage bottoms, and exam tables--and the cleaning and disinfection should focus on the health of the pets in addition to the efficacy of germ and bacteria removal.
