Daycare centres provide an important service to professional parents who lead busy lives. Parents depend on caregivers to take good care of their children, as much as they would.
The right kind of care involves safety, experience, kindness, and sanitation. For most parents, safety and sanitation top their list, but unfortunately many daycare centres don’t meet the minimum standards required by law.
There are a number of reasons why many daycare centres are unsafe for children.
We at North Kent Cleaning Services are aware of the importance of cleanliness, and below are a number of reasons why we highly recommend that you professionally clean your establishment.
It is Good for Business
Having a daycare that is clean, sanitary, and safe is a great selling-point for your business. More importantly, having a daycare that is professionally cleaned to meet required standards is a differentiator in your field.
Not all cleaning companies can give you the kind of clean that is board-certified. North Kent Cleaning Services is proud to offer an ISO 14001 accredited service that will separate your business from your competitors.
A Daycare is a Breeding Ground for Germs
Babies and small children get sick often, especially during flu and allergy season. A child’s immune system is vulnerable and kids have a way of putting their hands and toys in their mouths. Thus, it is easy for germs to spread no matter how you try to practice sanitation.
Even if you make hand-washing a priority, germs and bacteria can still spread as they live on surfaces and in crevices that help to breed them.
Getting a professional clean after a flu season is highly recommended as it can eliminate dangerous germs that cause diseases such as measles and chicken pox.
Not All Cleaning Agents Are Created Equal
Disease-causing germs and bacteria require a professional clean with powerful cleaning agents. Although they are often used interchangeably, cleansers, sanitisers and disinfectants are not the same.
Cleansers only remove dirt, dust and oil; sanitizers lower the amount of surface germs to a level that safe for humans; and disinfectants eliminate most types of germs such as bacteria, viruses and other microbes.
We recommend that you choose the safest and most effective cleaning products on the market for your establishment.
‘Green’ or environmentally safe cleaners contain less harsh chemicals, which make them an ideal choice for your daycare.
North Kent Cleaning Services is ‘green certified’ and uses the latest green technology, such as steam cleaners and ionators, which reduce the use of cleaning chemicals.
A Professional Clean Can Work Wonders
Many daycares use carpeted floors that are more comfortable for babies to creep on. However, spills do happen plus carpets tend to trap dirt, germs, and allergens that make children sick.
Simple vacuuming won’t remove odor-causing germs and bacteria. Getting a deep-clean for your carpets, rugs and draperies can make a big difference in cleanliness and sanitation.
Daycare centres provide an important role in many societies, and safe, reliable care of children must be the number one priority.
