Four Ways That School Cleaning Services Help To Curb The Effects Of Flu Season

With the nippy winter months fast approaching, we can’t help but notice the increase in random coughs and sneezes all through the streets of Melbourne. It’s unpleasant, but it comes around every year. Flu season is upon us, but there’s no reason to panic if you have the right mechanisms in place to keep it under control. Who would have thought that the right school cleaning services can protect people in public spaces from contracting flu? It’s more than just dirt we get rid of – it’s airborne particles that carry viruses too!

Why Are Schools Hard-Hit By Flu Season?

Schools are filled with people day in, day out, which is why it’s no surprise that the flu spreads so quickly and vastly on campus. The virus spreads either through airborne or surface particles that are carried by students and staff. There are a few things you can do to manage this. On top of encouraging vaccinations and personal hygiene, you can work together with your commercial cleaning company to keep the spread as low as possible. Here’s how:

  • Regular Disinfection Of Surfaces Throughout The Premises

Consistency is key during flu season. A regular disinfection schedule (more rigorous than in summer) will keep your school environment clean throughout the season.

  • Using High-Quality Disinfectant, Products Equipment & Materials

Your cleaning company must be committed to using only the best products and equipment to disinfect surfaces such as desks, keyboards, basins, doors, and more.

  • Recognising High-Risk Areas & Treating Them With Extra Attention

Communal areas, such as the lunchroom, computer room or bathroom are more likely to be contaminated. Be more meticulous when cleaning these areas.

  • Using Disposable Safety Masks, Gloves And Other Protective Gear

Cleaners must protect themselves, and the rest of the school by extension, by wearing protective gear while handling potentially contaminated spaces.

As much as you can’t control when students and staff contract flu during flu season, you can minimise its spread on campus. The first step is finding school cleaning services in Melbourne that you can trust. Contact Ankars Commercial Cleaning Services to stay safe this winter.

The Benefits of Hiring a School Cleaning Company

Educational institutions are important establishments in society. Not only are they a place for learning and having fun but they’re also a place for children to socialise, make friends and develop their emotional intelligence. For this reason, it’s the responsibility of management to ensure that the school supports their children in every way possible. A clean school environment is a foundation for positive and fruitful learning. While janitorial staff and daily cleaners are suitable for day to day cleaning, it makes practical and financial sense to hire a reputable Melbourne school cleaning company for the in-depth cleaning your school requires to stay hygienic. If you do so, you’ll enjoy the following benefits:

More Productive Learning

The phrase ‘tidy desk, tidy mind’ applies to every area of our lives, including schools. Dirt and clutter in the classroom, schoolyard and study hall can all decrease concentration and productive learning. A tidy school is one that has eliminated unnecessary distractions.

Fewer Bugs And Colds Going Around

Schools have a reputation for being a hotbed of sneezes, coughs and sniffles. It doesn’t have to be this way. While you can’t make sure every single child is washing their hands regularly, you can make the school environment one that’s inhospitable to germs and bacteria. Regular intensive cleaning will safeguard students with weak immune systems.

Impress Parents And Sponsors

Looks matter, and your school’s appearance will impact how others perceive it as much as your quality of teaching and range of facilities. With regular cleaning and maintenance services, parents, pupils, staff and visitors are more likely to feel welcome and take pride in a school. Tidied hallways, shiny windows, polished hard floors and spotless offices will give a school the respect it deserves from the outside community.

For better learning experiences, increased focus and productivity and optimal health and hygiene, investing in a school cleaning company is priceless. Contact Ankars Commercial Cleaning Services in Melbourne for assistance keeping your school as clean as it can be.
