Providing A Safe School Environment

 

When it comes to the health and wellbeing of our children, there is no misunderstanding on its importance. Proper school & day care cleaning is imperative to the success and wellness of the staff and students. A detailed cleaning program is essential in creating a healthy school environment in which students can learn, socialize and develop into successful and happy people. Recent studies have shown a direct correlation between the cleanliness of a school environment and high levels of attendance of staff and students.  A proper hygienic cleaning program encompasses all areas of the school environment, including gym locker rooms, cafeterias, bathrooms, classrooms, hallways, and auditoriums.

Every school and early learning center should include proper training on infection prevention. This kind of specialized training aids in the prevention and removal of potential infectious organisms which can cause disease outbreaks. Personal protective equipment and gear should also be present in all school programs, and staff must be trained on its proper and effective use.

Understanding Proper Cleaning:

Cleaning is the removal of soil and contaminants from an environment and is essential in reducing the ability of harmful germs to survive and multiply to reduce the risk of spreading infection.

Sanitizing with an EPA-registered sanitizing compound reduces germs on surfaces to a safe level to help decrease the risk of spreading infection.  The use of chemical free sanitizers, such as UVC disinfection technology, helps eradicates germs on the surfaces in your facilities without introducing additional chemicals to your environment. This technology provides you with an additional layer of sanitizing protection for increased surface hygiene to protect against germs such as the common cold, influenza, norovirus and MRSA. UVC disinfection eliminates germs on bathroom sinks, toilet seats, telephones, desktops, light switches, keyboards, doors knobs & push plates, and children’s toys and play equipment.

Disinfecting kills most germs on surfaces. Areas with an increased exposure to germs such as high touch points, restrooms, and food service areas require disinfection to reduce the risk of illness transmission. Disinfecting is a process done with an EPA-registered cleaning compound and is best accomplished after cleaning has been completed. For safety reasons, it is highly suggested that disinfectants be used after normal school hours when students are not present. Proper training should be offered to staff in charge of utilizing disinfectants for proper use and handling.
