“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.” – Rachel Carson
It’s no secret in the medical field that physical healing is frequently aided by the mental and emotional benefits of nature. Warm sunshine, gentle raindrops, wispy clouds, starlit skies – all can have a profound effect on one’s mental, and thus physical, well-being.
In any branch of the medical field, the goal is the same – help the patient return to wellness. Though there are many different paths to success, one thing can be agreed upon: mentality matters, and views of nature can aid in the process.
Many medical facilities already recognize the power of nature to healing as seen in their décor and landscaping. Some institutions boast courtyards in their complex, or a soothing fountain in their lobby area. All these are relevant provisions in engaging the mind in the healing process. One simple solution, however, is often overlooked: clean, clear windows.
Of all the conditions doctors’ or dentists’ offices, hospitals, or nursing care facilities can affect, sparkling clean windows represent one of the simplest, most economical solutions to calmed spirits, restful minds, and happy patients (and staff 😊). With the windows as a pre-existing condition of the building, maintaining them simply makes sense to the upkeep of your investment.
Proper window cleaning is a skill which serves as preventative maintenance to your investment and promotes improved patient care. The difficulty lies in the procedure itself. Many facilities have large numbers of windows – enough that maintenance crews can’t hope to keep up – especially with other duties as priority. Even small offices struggle to create that streak-free sparkle. As any doctor knows, expert tools and techniques matter.
Hiring a professional to clean your windows can seem daunting. All medical institutions face the dilemma of hiring a contractor due to the unique insurance and scheduling concerns in the industry. Whether a physician’s complex, chiropractic center, optometrist’s building, surgery center, dental facility, long or short-term care establishment, or even urgent care facility, the symptoms are the same.
