With face-to-face teaching once again permitted in colleges and universities, it is essential to prepare to welcome back students with effective university cleaning.
The Coronavirus pandemic continues to pose a risk as students move from online to in-person learning. Classroom attendance is likely to be high, with more than 80% of students having already returned to their university addresses, according to figures from the Office for National Statistics.
Following a temporary campus closure, it is vital that you follow the government’s advice, which is to arrange for thorough disinfecting before reopening.
We know that surfaces, equipment, and belongings can be contaminated with COVID-19 by touch or when someone breathes, talks, coughs, or sneezes. Large organisations such as WHO (World Health Organization) and CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) have confirmed that cleaning and disinfecting surfaces can reduce the risk of infection. So, it makes sense to engage a professional cleaning contractor to provide school cleaning services before and following reopening.
A School Wide Deep Clean & Decontamination
A school deep clean should begin with an assessment of sites or parts of the site that have been closed. These sites may include common areas, bathrooms, classrooms, workshops, labs, and kitchens. It is an appropriate action, before reopening and following any confirmed or suspected cases of Coronavirus, to arrange for university cleaning of these areas.
Particular attention should be paid to places where unwell individuals have been or where there is visible contamination (body fluids). Our highly-trained cleaning technicians decontaminate these spaces while using appropriate PPE. Our school cleaning service includes the safe disposal of all cleaning waste to prevent accidental recontamination of your facilities.
Our university cleaning methods are highly effective and can include:
- Manual cleaning and disinfection
- Disinfection fogging
Regular University Cleaning To Stop Bacteria Spreading
As your educational facility reopens, it is vital to introduce a regular university cleaning schedule. Ratcliffe Cleaning provides an excellent university cleaning service. Our technicians follow strict cleaning procedures and use non-irritatingly and non-toxic products designed to kill and remove traces of active viruses and bacteria. We use commercial-grade vacuuming and cleaning equipment to ensure a thorough clean.
Increased attention needs to be put on the cleaning of touch points, including lockers, telephones, door handles, countertops, desks, and keyboards. The UK government’s current advice is for twice-daily cleaning of these touch points.
Our bespoke regular school cleaning service can include:
- School kitchen cleaning
- Toilet sterilisation
- Windows and doors
