As the summer comes to an end, many have seen a return to school and university. In the ‘new normal’ and current climate surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, cleanliness is more important than ever when it comes to managing educational institutions.
Let’s take a look at a few ways commercial cleaning services can help keep your pupils safe, maintaining your school or college’s health and safety standards.
Reduce the risk of illness
Stop the spread of germs and reduce the risk of illness in your school with a professional cleaning service. Regular cleaning of hotspots for germs such as classroom tables, toilets, and the kitchen, can help prevent an outbreak. When choosing a company to fulfil this service, look for someone who can provide both a daily clean and a weekly deep clean to ensure they thoroughly disinfect every surface.
Store chemicals safely
One significant benefit of hiring an external commercial contractor is that they will bring their equipment with them. An advantage of this aspect is that you will save space in the school, reducing the number of mops and buckets you need to find space to store.
For schools, in particular, the use of professional services storing equipment off-site will help you comply with the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) cited in the government’s Health and Safety Executive (1988). This health and safety standard requires the careful storage of cleaning chemicals to keep the children safe, and a commercial cleaning company will understand this.
Peace of mind
Most importantly, having a regular cleaning service can help give you, your pupils, and their parents peace of mind. Knowing that you have a dedicated team of professionals on hand will help reduce stress levels and improve morale so you can get back to teaching the next generation.
