Benefits of Professional School Cleaning
Whether it is an elementary school, middle school, high school, private daycare, or institute of higher learning, ensuring a building is clean and sanitary is essential to the daily health of staff and students.
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic ravaged the world, student and employee absences due to sickness were something that all school districts and learning entities, public or private, dealt with.
In an environment where hundreds, if not thousands, of students are in close quarters day in and day out, germs, bacteria, and viruses spread quickly in a school. A sickness spreading through a school causes absences and is very hard to contain.
School days lost due to illness directly relate to students losing valuable learning and socialization time as well. A clean and neat environment also allows staff and students to focus better and enjoy their time at school more.
Keep Teachers Healthy
Healthier teachers mean learning can be maximized. Teaching is a hard mental and physical profession, and staff need to be able to bring their A-game every day. When a school is clean and staff is not sick, a campus does not need to worry about substitutes either. Not to mention the ongoing substitute shortage that is still occurring across the country. Students benefit the most when their teacher is in the classroom.
Keep Students Healthy Too
Healthier students also mean learning can be maximized. When students are healthy, they have more mental and physical energy to focus on their studies, interact with their classmates, and keep up with the rigor of day-to-day assignments, assessments, and other school activities.
A clean school minimizes the risk of allergens like pollen, dust, mold, and mildew from building up. A reduction of allergens not only reduces the risk of respiratory issues like asthma but also respiratory illnesses that are caused by allergens. Illnesses like the common cold, bronchitis, and pneumonia can spread through a class or campus extremely quickly and can take weeks to recover from fully.
Parents are more invested in a clean and tidy school and have more trust in leadership. Parents want to know that their children are being taken care of when they are at school. This is not only care in terms of educational study and growth, but this is overall safety and health as well.
The cleaner and neater a campus is, the more parents are going to feel at ease leaving their children for the day or investing in that campus in the long term. Negative parent involvement is never good, so a school that sets high standards for cleanliness is already setting a good set of expectations for the overall experience a child is having at the school.
Prevent Pests and Rodents
A clean environment reduces the risk of pests and rodents. Pests like roaches, spiders, and ants are distracting and unsanitary. They are attracted to food waste left out or not cleaned off the floor and love dirty, dark places. Rodents like mice or rats reproduce quickly, spread disease, and leave excrement trails on the same floors students sit and play on.
All in all, pests and rodents cause big issues in a crowded building for the humans that learn and work there every day. Not to mention that pests and rodents ruin equipment and learning materials. Rodents chew through cables, make nests out of paper and materials like carpet, and expose holes in walls.
Better Campus, Better Equipment
A clean campus helps maintain equipment and supplies. When a school is clean, that means the equipment, supplies, and furniture of that campus are also clean. Dust does not collect, broken items do not pile up and take up valuable storage space, leaks are addressed quickly, and mold and mildew do not have the opportunity to take hold.
A clean campus shows pride in the school and also instills good habits for adults and children alike. If a campus starts out clean, teachers and students are more apt to keep it clean and to feel invested in the overall environment of their classroom and larger campus.
