You’re probably on edge most of the time if you’re a school administrator. As you know, teaching children and molding their minds is only part of your job. On top of that, you also must protect your students from danger, inclement weather, and viruses/germs. For a school to function at its best and fully serve the needs of its students, faculty, and staff, it must provide a comfortable, healthy environment. Cleanliness plays a crucial role in creating that environment. That’s why cleaning services for schools are so important. Here are 3 common problem areas in schools that janitorial cleaning services can address.

3 Common Problem Areas in Schools To Address

1. The Bathrooms

Sometimes, children don’t make it to the bathroom in time. Often, they forget to flush. Yes, it can be beyond unpleasant to think about what can happen in a school bathroom. And you probably don’t need convincing that bathrooms need cleaning daily. 

You may have somebody covering the cleaning of the bathrooms already. Still, do you have a disinfecting service? Is your custodial staff cleaning the doorknob on the inside of the restroom? It may look like the cleanest part of a school bathroom, but that’s what every kid – who doesn’t wash their hands after going to the restroom – touches on their way out into the halls. Every student touches handles. Even a bathroom that looks clean may not be as clean as you think.

2. The Floors

It seems like a given that you’re going to make sure floors are clean during the winter. It’s imperative. Kids’ sneakers bring in dirt and road salt with toxic chemicals. Slush and mud are also tracked in, which means that anything kids are stepping on is coming into your school. For instance, if someone steps into something a dog leaves behind in the grass, that’ll soon be in school all over the floors and people’s shoes. That’s disgusting, but Integrity Janitorial Cleaning Services is here to help you daily with our floor care. We’ll ensure that we clean and disinfect the areas needing attention if this happens.

3. The Classrooms

This area can be the worst for germs. Remember, ensure you clean everything in the classroom. This includes cleaning light switches, doorknobs, floors, desks, and chairs since all these items are often touched daily. They need to be cleaned and disinfected. Additionally, don’t forget that if you have carpets, those need vacuuming thoroughly since classroom carpets are usually full of dust and dust mites, pollen, and bacteria. Integrity Janitorial Cleaning Services offers commercial carpet cleaning services for schools and much more to make your space as clean, fresh, and healthy as possible.

We could continue, but common areas like lobbies, hallways, and cafeterias need cleaning to fight against dirt and germs. Also, the type of equipment you use is critical when cleaning.
