Walls and floors
Wall and floor surfaces must be maintained in a sound condition and be easy to clean and, where necessary, to disinfect.
Surfaces need to be made of materials that are impervious (ie do not allow fluid to pass through), non-absorbent, washable and non-toxic.
Where appropriate, floors must allow adequate surface drainage.
Ceilings (or, where there are no ceilings, the interior surface of the roof) and overhead fixtures must be constructed and finished in a way that prevents dirt from building up and reduces condensation, the growth of undesirable mould and the shedding of particles.
Windows and other openings must be constructed to prevent dirt from building up.
