Schools can benefit from commercial cleaning services year-round, but in winter, cleaning services may need to be increased for a number of reasons…
1. Adverse weather conditions
In winter, the weather often becomes more severe. If it is raining and windy outside, children are much more likely to bring dirt and fallen leaves in with them. This means that hallways and classrooms can easily become messy and unhygienic simply from children passing through.
2. Increased amount of time indoors
During winter term, poor weather such as rain, snow and hail often prevents children from playing outside. As children are unable to take breaks and their lunch outside, children are forced to spend more time indoors in their classroom. The longer children spend in a classroom, the messier it becomes. From food consumed indoors to activities completed during a lunch break, classrooms can easily become unsanitary and messy during winter.
3. Gloomy, dark windows
Grime, grit and other dirty substances can accumulate on windows during winter. While this is unsightly, it also blocks natural light from entering a classroom and can make a classroom look gloomy and uninviting. Natural light is limited in winter, making it important children can make the maximum benefit of the world they view and the vitamin D they receive through the school’s windows.
4. Manage stress levels
Often in the run-up to the Christmas break, students and teachers are under a lot of pressure and become increasingly stressed. Working in a messy, unsanitary environment will add to the stress levels of children and students and may prevent them from being able to learn or teach to their best ability due to constantly being distracted.
