How To Clean Your School Like A Pro
Schools are full of kids who carry and spread germs and surfaces are full of disease-causing bacteria. Therefore, the importance of frequent cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitising cannot be underestimated. By keeping your campus clean and germ free, students will enjoy a better learning environment and take less days off due to sickness. A clean school ensures students, teachers and other at your facility remain healthy and safe. To that end, Total Focus Cleaning have put together this checklist to help your school remain clean and hygienic.
Why Is School Cleaning Important?
Schools help teach students valuable new knowledge and skills that help them and society. Having a clean campus helps ensure kids are learning in a safe environment, protected from diseases and other pathogens. Therefore, professional school cleaners can help your students get sick less often and make the most from their time at your institution. Below we’ve listed some reasons why employing an expert school cleaner is so important:
1. Safe Learning Environment
By having an experience school cleaning company conduct frequent cleans of your campus, built-up dirt and grime can be removed. This decreases the chance of sickness and allergic reactions in your students. If your students and teachers are learning and working in a dirty classroom, absenteeism due to health issues will naturally increase. Furthermore, schools that look unkept or are not presented well can impact the general mood of students and teachers. If your school campus is neat and tidy, students are better able to focus on their studies.
2. Clean Schools Improve Morale
When your home is neat and tidy, you feel safe and relaxed. It’s the same for your school. Having a clean campus also lets parents know you take care in looking after the place where their children learn. When you have pride in the presentation and cleanliness of your school, it also improves staff morale which in turn affects the way they look after their students.
3. Helps Form Good Habits
Children are like sponges and learn by imitation. When they learn in clean classrooms, they’re automatically programmed to be used to clean environments. This carries through to other aspects of their lives where they’ll incorporate cleanliness into their daily lives. The opposite is also true. When they are put into messy and disorganised classrooms, it can cause them to be sloppy and lazy in other areas of their life. Good habits can further be reinforced in students by having them help in cleaning the classroom and other school areas.

How To Clean Your School
School cleaning should be an on-going process throughout the year. Regular cleaning of classrooms, toilets and outdoor areas is essential to maintain the health and wellbeing of students, staff and visitors. Total Focus Cleaning also recommend deep cleans of carpets, upholstery and hard floors be undertaken at least semi-annually. We’ve made a list below of the most common and important cleaning tasks for your school.
1. Cleaning Floors
The cleaning of floors in your school should be a priority. With so many students walking on them all day every day, dust, dirt and grime builds up quickly. It’s therefore important to have your professional school cleaners to sweep and mop all wooden, tile, and vinyl floors as often as possible. Once or twice a year, we also recommend stripping floors to remove built up grime then apply a new wax to improve their lifespan and appearance. Annually or semi-annually, carpets and upholstery will need to be professionally steam cleaned to kill bugs and remove accumulated dirt.
2. Bathroom Hygiene
Toilets are another area that needs to be cleaned regularly. These areas habour to most germs and bacteria and it’s essential they are disinfected and sanitised as often as possible. A bathroom cleaning plan should include wiping down toilets, urinals, mirrors, walls, sinks, and door stalls as well as disinfecting floors.
3. Wiping Down Walls and Windows
These areas are often overlooked but walls and windows are often full of dirt and grime – not to mention graffiti! Your trained school cleaners can use microfibre clothes and a cleaning solution to effectively wash windows and walls.
4. Cleaning Play Equipment
To prevent the spread of germs and keep them safe for use, all play equipment should be thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis. When cleaning outdoor play areas, a professional school cleaning company will sweep away all fallen leaves and other debris. They’ll then use a pressure washer to blast away stains and larger debris.
5. Cleaning Outdoors
Outside school areas are just as important as indoor classrooms. By removing litter in the school surroundings, you can improve the presentation and hygiene of your educational facility. Additionally, high pressure washing the exterior of your buildings gives them a fresh new look and can help remove built-up mould and grime. Cleaning windows around your school can also help let more natural light into the building and improve students’ mood and academic performance.
