When School Is out, Cleaning Is In!
As the school year comes to a close, summer is the ideal time to tackle deep cleaning and maintenance jobs that need addressing, as well as attend to tasks that got missed during the hectic school year. Favorable weather, plus the lack of staff and students around to clean up after, make summer a very productive time when it comes to implementing a cleaning program.
Summer is also a great time to take inventory of tools and supplies, as well as evaluate their condition. Look in storerooms, closets and storage sheds to review what’s on hand, and assess if appliances and machines are running properly, need servicing, or should be replaced. Make sure to stock up so needed equipment is at the ready when school resumes in the fall.
Prioritizing cleaning projects and identifying tasks is key to ensuring a successful, efficient summer cleaning program. Concentrate on jobs that need the most attention, and make sure to have needed supplies and equipment on hand. Here are some areas that should be on every school’s cleaning and maintenance checklist:
Windows, Doors and Walls
Plumbing, Fixtures and Drains
Hallways and Stairs
Playgrounds and Recreational Equipment
A clean and properly maintained school will be a welcome sight in the fall, and will help ensure the safety and well-being of both staff and students. Essendant can help you supply your school customers with all the products and supplies they need–from dispensers and refills, floor care supplies, restroom cleaners, and much more.
