Schools take a beating given the number of people who move through one in a day. And that’s in addition to art projects and class parties, missing the garbage can, “accidentally” coloring on the walls, and even getting sick. Spring Break is a great time to get in there and do some deep cleaning of your school. Of course, schools benefit from a regular cleaning service as well as periodic deep cleans. Spring Break cleaning while the kids are out of school can get you ready for that end of year push. Here are four reasons to clean your school during Spring Break.
4 Reasons to Clean your School during Spring Break
- Start Soon While Spring Break seems long, it actually passes very quickly. Start as soon as the kids have left the building or at the very least the weekend Spring Break begins. There are any number of deep cleaning tasks that need to be done, from stripping VCT flooring to finding hidden stains that need to be wiped out. Hiring a professional cleaning service for these tasks can help make sure they’re completed before the students return. Whether it’s having the right tools for the job or simply having time for cleaning after hours or on a school break, hiring a professional cleaning service can increase efficiency in many ways.
- Identify Trouble Spots While deep cleaning can help identify hidden stains and spots that need to be cleaned, having a list of known trouble spots that need to be addressed can help make sure your school is spotless after break. If you know certain areas like entryways and art rooms need additional care, make note of them. Additionally, if there are any spots on carpets, floors, or walls that need to be addressed, make sure your cleaner is aware of them before they enter the facility. This will aid in both communication and efficiency, and make sure your school is fresh and clean when students return.
- Treat Your Cafeteria Like a Kitchen While it’s a standard part of most schools, your cafeteria should be cleaned to commercial kitchen standards. This means more than just sweeping the floors and wiping down surfaces. Kitchens require special types of deep cleaning; make sure your refrigerators and freezers, ovens, countertops and sinks are sterilized and up to health standards. Any professional cleaning service you hire should be able to specialize in this specific type of cleaning.
- Remember Your Teachers Deserve a Break, Too Teachers have a wide breadth of tasks on their plates already. They should not have to be professional cleaners to boot. While they can certainly help out with tasks like cleaning off their desk and bringing items to the lost and found, they don’t have the time to give your school the deep cleaning it deserves. Give them a break while your cleaning crew gets the school just as ready for their return as for the students’.
