If you’re a member of a school custodial team, here are seven deep cleaning tasks to cross off your list before students return in the new year.
1. Use a carpet extractor in high-traffic areas
Carpets near entryways, in hallways, and in well-traveled areas of classrooms can take a beating! Deep cleaning with a carpet extractor can help keep your carpets in great condition for years to come by removing the dirt and grime that can become bonded to the carpet fiber.
2. Refinish hard floors
Over time, hard floors in areas like gyms and cafeterias will lose their shine. Not only does this make them look dingy, but it exposes them to damage that can necessitate early replacement. Refinishing floors will keep them both looking and performing their best.
Nilfisk’s REVTM technology supports your green cleaning efforts by decreasing the water and chemicals required to restore your floors. Watch this short video for more info.
3. High-pressure wash restrooms
You’re probably already deep cleaning restroom fixtures on a regular basis, but what about the floors and walls? If you’re still using a mop for daily cleaning, your tiles and grout will start to look shabby and also harbor bacteria. Use this opportunity to deep clean floors, walls, and fixtures with a high-pressure restroom cleaning machine.
4. Deep clean refrigerators
Refrigerators can be the location of all kinds of unintentional science experiments. Remove all shelves and drawers so you can clean and sanitize each component individually.
5. Wash windows inside and out
If you don’t regularly wash your windows from top to bottom, inside and out, dirt could be blocking light from getting into the classrooms. Clean windows thoroughly to boost student learning and save on your electric bill.
6. Clean the light fixtures
When light fixtures get dirty, they give off less light. They’re also excellent bug collectors. Remove the covers to give them a complete clean.
7. Change the filters in your vacuum cleaners
Finally, this isn’t a deep cleaning task, but winter break is the perfect time for your annual vacuum filter change.
