Anyone who has had experience in a school setting knows that facility cleanliness is a challenge. Educators, administrators, and parents want a clean and sanitized facility for their children. Keeping the school clean is not the same as a home or a business, and the responsibility of contracting commercial cleaning services is very important.
What makes a school such a challenge to clean?
- Germs & Viruses
Schools are a breeding ground for germs & viruses. Children become symptomatic during the school day, and continuously interact with other children and staff.
- Unique Areas & Spaces
Schools are made up of a variety of spaces, each requiring its own cleaning regimen and schedule. In addition to classrooms and offices, there are bathrooms, cafeterias, gymnasiums, locker rooms, offices, medical facilities, and shared public spaces like hallways and stairwells to consider.
- Challenging Schedules
Cleaning a school requires awareness of the day-to-day operations of the school, as tasks need to be completed in a way that doesn’t interfere with the educational progress of the students.
School cleaning companies much have high standards when hiring employees who will be working around children.
- Budget Constraints
Public and private schools alike are obligated to stick to a strict budget. There isn’t much room for adding staff, hours or responsibilities to the current facilities budget of most schools. While everybody likes to save money, schools are especially limited in terms of how much they can spend.
