Cleaning and Maintenance BurlingtonIt’s summer time! Kids are out of school, enjoying their months of freedom before heading back in the fall.

When educational facilities – schools, campuses, etc. – are empty (or less busy) during the summer, it’s the ideal time for a thorough cleaning initiative. Schools that aren’t packed with students allow janitorial cleaners to get a lot more done and use their maintenance resources most effectively.

Key Areas to Clean over the Summer

September always arrives quickly, so it’s important for your janitorial company to have a well-defined plan to guide their cleaning efforts. You must make sure all of the crucial elements are addressed.

Here are key areas to have cleaned and serviced over the summer:

  • Classrooms
  • Cafeterias
  • Kitchen facilities
  • Lounge areas/Common areas (including furniture)
  • Lockers
  • Gym and showers
  • Windows, doors, walls
  • Stairs, hallways
  • Carpets and hard floors
  • Playgrounds and building exterior
  • Washrooms
  • Lighting
  • Plumbing
  • HVAC
  • Janitorial closets (are all chemicals and products up-to-date?)

You may have more items to add to this list, depending on your particular building and priorities.

Schools and campuses require a great deal of cleaning, and with only a few months to get it done, you need a janitorial company you can rely on to be thorough and organized.

Infection Control and Health Concerns

Educational facilities are busy environments, bustling with students, teachers, caretakers, administrators, and visitors. That’s why infection control and touch point cleaning are so important – both during the regular school year and in the summer months.

Children can be particularly susceptible to toxic chemicals used in conventional cleaning products. Your professional cleaners should use non-toxic, VOC-free, environmentally safe cleaning materials to protect students’ health.

Starting the new school year with a clean building ensures a healthy learning environment for students.
