It may still be summer, but janitorial crews are heading back to school. If it is your job to ensure that your school is shining and looking its best for the first day of the new school year, follow these tips to get an A+!
1. Divide and Conquer
Schools are large buildings with varying needs. Take time this summer to create a thorough cleaning plan, dividing the building by room type: hallways and stairways, cafeterias and break rooms, restrooms, classrooms, gyms and other types of spaces. From there, you can carefully assess the needs of each type of space and create a cleaning program that works for your specific building’s needs.
2. Inspect and Service Equipment
Before students and teachers start returning, complete a thorough assessment of your janitorial equipment. Repair or replace machines that are past their prime or not working effectively.
3. Focus on Restrooms
School restrooms see a ton of traffic each day, and a year of kids coming in and out can do a lot of damage. Take time before the first day to do a deep cleaning in all restrooms, including cleaning vents and light fixtures, scrubbing walls and stalls and getting dirt and grime out from grout. It will be much more difficult to complete these tasks when school is back in session.
