The term “green cleaning” has many different definitions. However, the main goal of green cleaning products is to enhance the health of the environment and those who inhabit it.
Green cleaning products are free of toxins like phosphates, chlorine, and artificial fragrances. Cleaning materials with these ingredients pose health concerns to students and teachers—which is the last thing you want to risk right now.
Now is the perfect time for your school district to take advantage of green cleaning solutions. These products are ideal for use during school hours, because many kids have allergies. Toxic cleaning materials could result in negative health reactions.
Disinfection cleaning services are the latest addition to the cleaning industry, created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This solution uses electrostatic technology to quickly, effectively, and safely sanitize high-contact surfaces at your school.
Many students are going back to school for the first time since March of 2020, so it’s crucial that every surface is in great condition. High-quality cleaning services reduce the chances of students and teachers contracting COVID-19 or the Delta variant.
Disinfection cleaning is an EPA- and FDA-approved technology engineered to kill bacteria, influenza, and viruses—including strains of COVID. These services should be performed after everyone has left for the day so the disinfectant can settle on surfaces and do its job effectively.

Since teachers and students are always in and out of the school building, the flexibility of your cleaning services is essential. For additional daily or weekly cleaning services, consider your options:
Day porter services involve hiring professionals to clean at your school full-time as if they were an employee of your school district. They work alongside your teachers and students to prioritize the school’s cleaning and organizing.
Although many schools have an in-house cleaning team, school administrators like to implement day porter services as well. These services are customizable and enable in-house cleaning crews to do the jobs they like to do. A day porter’s responsibilities typically include:
- Common space cleaning
- Teacher breakroom cleaning
- Restroom stocking and cleaning
- Emergency spills and cleanups
- Trash removal
- High touchpoint cleaning
- Interior window and glass cleaning
As mentioned earlier, many schools have an in-house cleaning team for daily cleaning responsibilities. However, administrators also like to hire janitorial services to clean the school after everyone has left for the day. This includes additional cleaning services like professional carpet cleaning and COVID-19 disinfection.
Carpets are typically the dirtiest parts of any building and are frequently overlooked. Students and teachers bring in contaminants on their shoes, dragging them on the carpet when they walk in. During reading time, many students sit on the carpet and risk infecting their clothes with bacteria that’s brought in from outside.
Carpet cleaning services are more than your traditional area rug cleaning. There are a couple different ways to clean carpets, including daily cleaning and carpet extractions:
- Daily carpet cleaning: Daily carpet cleaning ensures that your floors stay clean and look their best day in and day out.
- Deep extraction carpet cleaning: Deep extraction cleaning is the best way to keep your investment looking new. These services aren’t needed daily, but are great for getting contaminants out of your carpet fibers on a weekly basis.
Like carpet, hard surface flooring is a significant and necessary investment for your school. Deep cleaning of your hardwood floors is essential to extend its longevity and keep it in excellent condition.
Daily or weekly hard floor buffering is ideal for polishing hallways and classrooms. Occasional stripping and wax flooring are also good for your school’s hard surface floors. When you don’t strip and wax often enough, floors can begin to look cloudy, indicating damage to the underlying surface.
It’s that time of year again for students and teachers to head back to school. Now is the perfect time to rethink your current cleaning solution.
The Cleaning Company partners with schools in the San Diego area to prepare students, teachers, and administration to return to school safely. Limit the spread of COVID-19 in your school district by contacting The Cleaning Company today.
