School & Daycare Cleaning Services in Lawrenceville, Duluth, Alpharetta, Buford, Atlanta GA
Every daycare center is exposed to germs and other contaminants that can be harmful to children and staff if it is not cleaned properly. A daycare that has ill children and staff or has been exposed to certain viruses needs to be sanitized from top to bottom before operation. Proper sanitation practices in a daycare will eliminate dirt, soil and contaminants that can contribute to the spread of viruses and disease among children. Cleaning, sanitization, and disinfecting are three significant aspects of maintenance for any daycare/childcare facility. The first is simply washing away visible soil and dirt, while the other two reduce bacteria and destroy harmful organisms on surfaces.
This is all very important in maintain the health and well being of the children and staff. Daycares with carpets should have them professionally shampooed at least once every three months depending on the traffic and amount of use. Floors without carpeting should be mopped daily with phenolic disinfectants or quaternary ammonium chlorides for cleaning floors as they effectively kill fungi, viruses, and bacteria like salmonella and methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
Additionally hard floor surfaces should be stripped and waxed two times yearly, this will insure cleanliness and enable easier daily maintenance. Sanitizers should be used on surfaces that commonly come into contact with food, hands, the mouth, eyes, nose, and exposed skin of children and staff. These surfaces include kitchen surfaces, infant food preparation areas, drinking fountains, table tops, keyboards, toys, sleeping mats, cribs, high chairs, head phones, tumbling mats and furniture. Disinfectants should be used on surfaces that are commonly contaminated with high hazard body fluids, such as, but not limited to, toilet inserts, diaper changing areas and tables, diaper pails and surfaces that have been in contact with high hazard body fluids.
