5 Reasons Your School Campus Needs a Deep Clean Before Students and Staff Return
The start of a new school year is just around the corner. We know you are busy preparing the building for students to arrive for “meet the teacher” day or the start of classes this fall. Many of the things you and your staff are considering have to do with the school calendar, lesson plans, and what art is getting hung up in the classrooms.
You’ve also most likely cleaned the building at the end of the last school year. But it’s a good idea to have another deep clean before the start of a new school year. It’s not just because you want to start off fresh with a building that appears clean. Here are 5 reasons you need a deep clean of your campus.
1 | Summer Camp Mess
If you held summer camp events at your facility over the past several months, it’s important to have a good cleaning afterward. Whether it’s vacuuming up glitter from camp art projects or removing stains from spilt juice, a good deep clean can ensure that your campus is ready for students to learn and play again. Remember, a tidy campus can help students stay focused during one of the most chaotic times of the school year as students and staff begin to learn how things will work for the new year.
2 | Quality Disinfection
Buildings don’t sit empty over the summer break, even if you have no summer camp events. Every campus should have a quality disinfection before the start of a new term. Sanitizing the campus will ensure that any areas that may have become contaminated over the break are now safe for students and staff.
3 | Special Attention
During a deep clean and disinfection, special attention should be paid to some key areas of your campus: the gym and toilets. These are two of the biggest culprits for the spread of germs on any campus. We all know why toilets can be gross, but locker rooms in a gym are breeding grounds over the summer as temperatures and humidity rise, creating the perfect conditions for bacteria and infectious diseases to multiply. Not to mention that most schools have often heard complaints from their students about the condition of the restrooms or gym locker room. While students are on break is the perfect time to address the condition of these facilities and to give them a serious deep clean and sanitization.
4 | Air Vent Quality Control
The end of summer break is the perfect time to assess and clean your ventilation systems. Once cooler temperatures set in, opening a window for fresh air will not be ideal and you don’t want to be circulating poor quality air around your school. A deep clean should include cleaning your ventilation system, ducts, and vents.
5 | Dust Still Builds Up
During your several month long break, dust still builds up. This can be a nightmare for students and staff with allergies or asthma. And it’s not just your vents and ducts that see a buildup of dust over the summer. Dust also lurks behind and under large furniture or filing cabinets as well as baseboards, crown molding, and on top of fan blades.
