How to Prepare for Back to School Cleaning & Infection Control

The start of a new school season can be stressful, and when the stress of the academic semester combines with crowded halls and classrooms, sudden bouts of illness are sure to spread. However, with the right preparation, both students and teachers can be ready to tackle the new school year without the fear of germs. All parents and school officials want their children to learn in a healthy educational facility. Here are a few things to look for when hiring a school custodial company to keep your Cincinnati school clean and healthy.Flu Season Ahead

Keeping a clean environment means more than just surface cleaning. Anago’s Cincinnati school cleaning services include a heavy emphasis on disinfecting common surfaces as a way to provide infection control.

One of the most common illnesses easily contracted in a school environment is influenza, or the flu. The flu virus is one of the most dangerous illnesses children can contract, causing more hospitalizations than any other immunization-preventable disease (CDC). The fall and winter seasons are typically the worst for the flu, so it is important for parents, teachers and school administrators to be especially on their guard when school is back in session, taking care to disinfect any shared surfaces and wash hands thoroughly with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.

Keeping Ohio and Kentucky schools clean all year-round in all types of weather can be a challenge. This is why it is so important to have school cleaners with a flexible schedule. School administrators should also consider hiring commercial cleaning companies that offer emergency cleaning services rather than relying on existing janitorial staff to cover all emergency cleanings.

Anago is one of the few commercial cleaning companies in southwestern Ohio with focus on green cleaning.This means students will not come into contact with harsh chemicals or toxins otherwise found in dangerous cleaning agents.

If you are considering adding a commercial cleaning company to your school staff, consider the following:

  • Types of cleaning products used
  • Flexible scheduling – available for daytime services or after hours
  • Security and confidentiality agreements
  • Hard surface floor cleaning and protection
  • Hot water carpet cleaning
  • Emergency cleaning services

For schools throughout Cincinnati and Dayton, as well as nearby communities, Anago is a great choice for school cleaning. We offer award-winning services, and all of our employees are insured and bonded for your security precautions.
