A Childcare Centre must be clean to comply with government regulations for the health and safety of the children. Walls, toilets and even the ceiling needs regular inspection but how often do you check the Childcare Centre floors?
Children spend a lot of time on the floor and if you are just mopping daily with a bit of detergent then the floor may not be as clean as it should be. If there are carpets, they can harbour all types of allergens and creepy crawlies and a quick vacuum every now and then may be leaving lots of undesirables behind.
The Essentials of Childcare Centre Floor Cleaning
Floor cleaning at a Childcare Centre needs to be thorough and free of toxins. Some of the things that you can consider:
- Hard flooring
- Remove dust and dirt daily or more often as required. Use a wet mop and disinfect high contact areas at least two to three times a week
- Clean with a gentle detergent once the dust is removed
- If you are using a vacuum with a filter check often and change as necessary
- Vacuum every day
- Fully clean every 4 – 6months – more often in the case of a major spill
- Try wet vacuuming as a more efficient method than dry vacuuming
- Disinfect at least twice a week
The Consequences of an Unclean Floor
Making time to do everything at a Childcare Centre can be difficult. Looking after the kids in your care is a challenge in itself so when it comes to carpet cleaning you may be struggling to clean it to the level that you would like.
However, the consequences of not cleaning the floor thoroughly can be significant and need to be thought about when deciding on your floor and carpet cleaning regime. The children can get sick, it may be something simple like a common cold or possibly life threatening like asthma.
When kids get ill then your business is affected and if the cause can be traced back to your Childcare Centre you may lose clients or worse.
Isn’t it worth making sure that your floors are properly cleaned at all times?
A Simple Solution to Protect Children’s Health
Professional carpet or tile cleaning for commercial premises takes the worry out of keeping your floors spotless. Nevertheless, not every professional cleaning service is ideal for working in a Childcare Centre or school. When you are looking for the perfect cleaning provider for your environment, they need to understand your special requirements.
Look for cleaning professionals that are covered by liability insurance and are certified to work with children. They need to be flexible with their availability to suit your operating hours and have staff that are experienced with working in your particular industry.
