For the sake of “first impressions”, as well as creating a healthier school environment there are come important back-to-school cleaning processes that should not be forgotten. If the school has been empty and unused all summer, you can be certain that dust, dirt and other contaminates have made a home on every surface.
TOILETS: Floor-to-ceiling attention is required to ensure that all surfaces are sanitised. Disinfection and high pressure cleaning to walls, partitions, floors, urinals, toilets and sinks is a good technique. Start your school year off right with pristine bathrooms and it will be easier to keep up with a regualr maintenance regime.
WINDOWS AND LIGHTS: Good lighting contributes to good learning. To bring in the most natural light, windows should be washed inside and out. Light fittings need detail cleaning as they hold heavy dust deposits.
CARPETS AND FLOORS: Mold, dirt and pollutants love to hide in carpets. Primary schools especially need to keep them clean for sprawling and sitting children. Dirty carpets are not only not nice to look at but they can also have a negative affect on indoor air quality. Properly cleaned carpets help reduce asthma and allergy symptoms. Back-to-school cleaning should involve hot water extraction carpet cleaning and sanitisation. This is also the time to deep clean hallways and classroom floors, shiny floors make a great impression and well maintained floors last longer.
GYMS AND LOCKER ROOMS: These can be breeding grounds for infectious organisims. Start now with a deep cleaning and sanitisation operation for all surfaces and equipment, and then keep ahead of problems with routine cleaning. Locker rooms and showers should be cleaned with the same techniques as toilets.
KITCHENS & DUCT SYSTEMS: Kitchen ducting systems should be cleaned at least once per year to maintain and meet the required TR19 Standards. Grease and Carbon deposits need to be removed to reduce the risk of fire within the systems. It’s also important to regualry clean your catering equipment as it will extend the working life of your equipment.
