Many commercial cleaning companies claim to offer professional Kelowna daycare cleaning services. But do they really know how to properly clean a daycare facility?
Cleaning requirements for a daycare are different than most other types of businesses. Daycares, pre-schools and early childhood care centres are required to meet strict standards of cleanliness since germs can spread quickly in a pre-school childcare environment.
If you hire the wrong company you can quickly develop a bad reputation for having children out with frequent illnesses and ailments.
Even worse, if it gets bad enough, the local government authorities could shut down your childcare facility until you can get the infectious diseases under control.
It is important to hire Kelowna daycare cleaning services that are well versed in regulations that government agencies expect daycare facilities to operate within. Having a cleaning company helping you manage the cleanliness of your daycare takes one less concern off your shoulders.
Daycare Cleaning Is Not Just For The Children
If your daycare facility is not properly cleaned, sanitized and maintained to the highest degree of cleanliness, of course, the children can get sick, but your staff and parents could get sick too.
Daycares handle children of all ages, from zero to pre-school. At these ages, babies and young children catch sicknesses easily since their immune system is not that developed.
These children come from all kinds of different environments and bring their germs to the daycare with them.
While a given child could handle the germs in their own home, when you put them in an environment where they are exposed to a wide variety of germs, bacteria, and viruses from all the other children, a daycare can become a high-risk environment.
Germs, bacteria, and illnesses can spread throughout the center and affect children and staff quickly.
Every surface, from toys and books to tabletops, floors and walls can harbor unsafe bacteria and grime.
It is essential to stop the spread of sickness and create a healthier, safer environment for everyone involved. From a business standpoint, it is essential to ease the minds of parents who are frequently concerned about center cleanliness.
Hiring A Professional Daycare Cleaning Company
Hiring a daycare cleaning company that has experience in childcare facilities is essential for running a safe, high quality, successful daycare center.
As a professional school and daycare center cleaning service provider, we understand how important it is to have a safe, clean, healthy, germ-free and attractive school and daycare environment for children, staff, parents and visitors.
We are well aware that when you are operating a school or daycare, you are not just responsible for your students’ education, you are also responsible for their safety and wellbeing.
Since a baby and pre-school environment is a perfect storm for the rapid spread of illnesses, it is important to understand the difference between tidy and hygienically clean.
Health and Safety Guidelines for Child Care Facilities
Surface Cleaning And Disinfection Guidelines For Child Care Facilities
- “High touch” surfaces are of particular concern. They are most likely to be contaminated, and should be cleaned and disinfected daily, and sometimes more often if they are visibly soiled.
Give extra attention to these surfaces:
- Light switches,
- Door knobs,
- Sink taps,
- Toilet handles,
- Other surfaces that are frequently touched
The Right Procedures Ensure Consistent Cleaning Standards
Consider implementing the following standards and procedures for daycare cleaning:
- “Wipe Twice” For high touch surfaces that are not grossly contaminated
- If necessary, you can use a “wipe twice” procedure to clean and then disinfect.
- Wipe surfaces with visible soil immediately and thoroughly to remove dirt and other contamination.
- Disinfect visibly soiled surfaces a second time with another clean cloth that has been soaked with a “green” disinfectant.
- If a high touch surface is very dirty, it should first be washed with soap, then the soap rinsed away with a clean cloth, then the surface wiped with another clean cloth that has been soaked with a safe, “green” disinfectant.
