Keeping schools clean has always been a struggle. Children touch everything from walls and floors to their mouths and other kids in their class. It’s simple: kids will be kids. No matter how hard we try, a mess inevitably follows. As the coronavirus continues to be a problem across the country, despite vaccination numbers, it’s important to take every preventative measure possible so that our children can safely return to the classroom. As summer begins to inch closer, there’s never been a better opportunity to create a cleaning schedule for the fall and take advantage of the empty building. Keeping your school clean not only helps keeps the kids safe, but it also reduces teacher absence and helps to ensure there are no disruptions to the curriculum and overall teaching efficiency. However, not all cleaning methods are the same. There are some processes that are necessary and some that don’t quite get the job done. To better understand what is required to uphold safe sanitation levels, here are the 5 realities of deep cleaning in schools.
1. Deep Cleaning Disinfects the Entire School
Properly deep cleaning in schools is one of the only effective ways to disinfect the entire building. Since cleaning and disinfecting helps to reduce the risk of infection, it’s essential to curb transmission of bacteria, viruses, and other dangerous pathogens. With regular deep cleaning in schools, the rate of infection can be reduced tremendously. Deep cleaning is different than daily disinfection, as it includes a comprehensive approach that covers every square inch of the school’s property.
Doing this helps to keep both the faculty and students healthy and safe. Along with eliminating harmful pathogens like COVID-19, deep cleaning reduces dust and allergens that can irritate children throughout the day. While janitorial services are commonly used throughout schools in the United States, utilizing the proper procedures and techniques is essential to completely sanitizing an area.
2. There’s a Difference Between Cleaning and Sanitizing
Keeping a school clean isn’t just about maintaining your image. It’s about protecting both students and faculty from dangerous microbes and creating a safe learning environment. The term cleaning itself is a surface level concept that’s done to make things look nice. It removes visible signs of dirt and residue, spills, and stains. Depending on how you go about cleaning, you might not even be lifting germs from a surface. Instead, cleaning commonly pushes germs from one place to another and transfers them from surface to surface. Deep cleaning in schools through a professional company like Bee Line includes high-performance surface level janitorial services and disinfecting to ensure that your school is sanitized to the highest standards.
To make sure that no inch goes untouched, Bee Line utilizes the PS 4/7 Misting System, which safely and effectively sprays high-touch surfaces to fully disinfect anything, anywhere. This ensures that all high traffic touch points are targeted and hard-to-reach areas are properly sanitized. Since it’s safe to use on any surface and can even sanitize carpet, Bee Line’s disinfectant misting services are the perfect way to get the most out of your school’s deep cleaning.
When you prioritize disinfecting and sanitization, you’ll increase student attendance, have staff with fewer sick days, eliminate any unwanted odors, and don’t have to suffer through harsh chemical smells. There are no VOCs in our green cleaning program, so no smell is left behind.
3. Cleaning Products Should be Safe for Kids
The Environmental Protection Agency has outlined a number of different cleaning products and disinfectants that kill pathogens—including COVID-19. While utilizing efficient cleaning products is absolutely crucial to eradicating germs and creating a safe learning environment, you don’t want to put your students in harm. Cleaning products should be both safe for kids and effective at eradicating pesky germs and dangerous microbes. Bee Line adheres to EPA guidelines using a green cleaning program, which keeps classrooms and educational facilities pristine while protecting students from dangerous chemicals. Our professionals are well versed in deep cleaning in schools and armed with HEPA filter vacuums, Green Seal-certified disinfectants, and microfiber towels. We always put safety and sustainability first.

4. Routine Cleaning is Still Essential
While deep cleaning services are perfect for keeping those hard-to-reach or neglected areas free of germs over time, routine cleaning and disinfecting is still essential. This is especially true as schools begin to return to in-person classes, despite the ongoing mutations with COVID-19 and subsequent infections. Since vaccines have not yet been approved for younger children, battling high-touch areas during the day is a great way to reduce the risk of transmission while school is in session. To make sure that you keep your students and faculty members as safe as possible, it’s important to make a plan, train your staff accordingly, develop a schedule for increased, routine cleaning and disinfecting throughout the day, and hire a professional cleaning company to perform professional disinfecting that will reach every inch of your school.
5. Professional Cleaning Companies are the Best Option
While many schools have janitors employed, it’s not the most effective way to disinfect an entire area. Janitorial services are great, but if you want to get the most out of your efforts, it’s important to work with someone who has the training and experience to banish germs from any surface. Bee Line is one of the few medical-grade cleaning companies in the region and we take that effort into any facility we enter.
