With the new school year underway, it’s important to keep school surfaces clean and disinfected. MaintenX International, a Tampa-based facilities repair company, wants to offer top tips to ensure local schools are making the most of their janitorial services this year.
“As a school facility manager, one of your most important jobs is making sure schools are clean to prevent the spread of germs,” said Bill Schaphorst, VP of Business Development at MaintenX International. “Having strong janitorial services ensures you are providing children with a safe learning environment.”
MaintenX International has been helping schools with their janitorial services for more than 30 years. Below are a few tips to ensure your janitorial services keep your school in top shape:
1. Ditch Outdated Equipment
A school’s cleaning regimen is only as good as its equipment. If your janitorial staff is using old, outdated equipment, it needs to be updated. It’s important to replace any ineffective materials to ensure your school is as clean as it can be.
2. Use Old-School Glass Cleaner
The best way to remove greasy fingerprints from mirrored surfaces and windows is an age-old trick. Ammonia and warm water is the most effective window cleaner when it comes to removing marks made by tiny, curious hands.
3. Disinfect Daily
It is extremely important to disinfect commonly touched surfaces and objects every day. This should include desks, cabinets, phones, faucet handles and computer keyboards and mice. It is also important to deep clean bathrooms daily.
4. Practice Preventative Maintenance
Proper cleaning does more than just stop the spread of germs. It also keeps all critical maintenance systems in working order. Preventative maintenance on a school’s plumbing, electrical and Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system are all crucial to prevent costly breakdowns. These routine cleanings keep critical systems performing at their peak, increasing overall energy efficiency.
