School Cleaning

Why it is important to use non-toxic green-cleaning in Schools?

Schools are busy places! On average they are four times more densely populated than office space and that means they accumulate dirt and grime more quickly. Schools have many different areas: classrooms, science labs, locker rooms, hallways, cloakrooms, cafeterias, playgrounds and gymnasiums. These school areas each offer their own unique cleaning challenge.

UK food hygiene and health and safety rules apply just as much in school cafeterias and locations as in any other public spaces.

Having clean gyms, physical education equipment, science classes promotes health and well-being. Some studies have shown that general dust and allergens in school areas can trigger asthma, headaches and other conditions affecting children’s learning.

Outside the school building the outside areas, the school frontage, refuse bins area and school vehicles are all areas needing careful green cleaning.

  • Good cleaning practices will help you to avoid claims from accidents due to hazardous spillages and poorly maintained areas.
  • Just as important is peace of mind for parents and teachers in knowing that their school children are in a clean and safe environment.

School Reputation

Most parent-teacher associations support the use of chemical free cleaning. They recognise that teaching staff and children both benefit from the better environmental conditions. Older schools can suffer from sick building syndrome, careful cleaning and maintenance of ventilation systems helps to prevent this. Teacher absence due to bugs and colds is reduced and the childrens’ attendance rates are positively maintained. Using enzyme cleansing products in all these areas will minimise the spread of germs and minimise your sickness costs.

Teacher Pride / Productivity

Did you know that staff who feel happier in their environment can be up to twice as productive? Messy and dirty working environments are shown to create an oppressive working environment that discourages enthusiasm, lowers moral and kills productivity.

Visitors, Parents, Teachers & Students Safety

Dirty and untidy floors cause slips, trips and falls. In the event of an accident, it really helps if you can show through cleaning record management that you do take safety and cleanliness seriously.
