Cleanliness is the #1 importance for a daycare center
These facilities have specific regulations surrounding a variety of cleaning issues. Diaper changing stations, food prep areas, bathrooms, even the toys, and educational activities have cleanliness standards.
To ensure the center meets these standards, it must do so safely. This means not using chemicals dangerous to children, especially given the fact that small children frequently put things in their mouths that do not logically belong there. An inexperienced cleaning crew may inadvertently harm your charges as well as your staff. Always hire a professional cleaning company.
The Unique Challenges in Cleaning Daycare Centers
Babies and toddlers tend to put everything in their mouths. This is natural. When learning, children use all of their senses, including taste.
An additional challenge is the amount of time children spends on the floor of a daycare or preschool. Add this to their tendency to taste everything and the weaker immune system of some children, and you’ll see how quickly airborne illnesses can spread through a childcare center.
Keeping the environment sanitized presents a special challenge since typical cleaning products are incompatible with this environment. This is one of the reasons many professional cleaning companies use “green” materials when cleaning childcare facilities.
Benefits of Outsourcing Cleaning Services
Many daycares choose to outsource their cleaning. Compared to in-house cleaning, a commercial cleaner is often the most economical alternative.
With a commercial cleaner, you do not have to supply the cleaning materials or the equipment. You do not need to worry about people calling in sick, or taking personal leave. A commercial crew has the proper training to ensure your daycare center meets state regulations and the professional equipment to do so efficiently. When you use your in-house staff to complete cleaning, you have the inconvenience of cleaning occurring during business hours, or you’re paying overtime for the employees performing these tasks. You also must pay the salary and benefits of these employees, plus purchase the equipment and cleaning supplies.
