Healthy Results Cleaning Facilities
No Cross Contamination
The direct correlation between healthy school environments and student performance and attendance are well documented. Research in the areas of infection control measures in educational facilities has always been important. Today, it has never been more important, and it is clear that a professional cleaning will result in keeping educational facilities like schools, day care centers, playrooms, and classrooms free of risk, or at least at a minimum.
Five Risks Involved In Illness:
- Idling buses
- Heating/air conditioning units (HVAC)
- Certified green cleaning products
Many reputable studies have found that the indoor air tends to be more polluted when compared to outdoor air, and building ventilation is critical. As more buildings plan and become energy efficient, risk still may be a concern with contaminated air circulating around the school, day care, or classroom facilities which may put children with compromised immune systems at risk.
Mold can ignite allergic reactions, and lead to student absenteeism. Many leading facilities have budgeted for professional cleaning quarterly or even monthly in areas where mold, high humidity and pollens are highly active. Hiring a company to come and professionally clean can be a great health advisor. Cross contamination risks can be more closely identified, and a simple targeting of these areas with appropriate cleaning measures like proper disinfection and color coded programs will help mitigate and minimize risk.
By implementing modern tools and procedures will enhance a cleaning operations's ability to fight all kinds of cross contamination. Using microfiber mops, cloths, brooms, and dual bucket containers will be useful. Proper staff training on use of cleaning measures needed in those target areas can be highlighted on checklists and turned in to supervisors for required documentation required by city or state agencies.
In addition, no touch, steam generated all inclusive style cleaning equipment that uses water pressure and keeps cleaners at safe distances will also help to improve results and keep school facilities cleaning professionals productive and healthy.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Infectious diseases account for millions of school days lost each year for kindergarten through 12th-grade public school students in the United States.” CDC offers statistics to consider, including:
- 40 percent of children aged 5–17 years missed three or more school days in the past year because of illness or injury
- Nearly 22 million school days are lost each year due to colds alone
- 38 million school days are lost each year due to the influenza virus.
