Disinfection services for educational facilities

COVID-19 anxiety is running high, presenting school officials with a new set of challenges around returning to the classroom. For younger children, enforcing the use of masks, maintaining frequent handwashing, and keeping students 6 feet apart seems like quite the challenge for educators.

Statistics about concerns for educational facilities

Parents of kindergarten and college students alike are apprehensive about the quality of education their children will receive and are deeply concerned for their safety as they return to a potentially germ-filled environment.

How then do you reduce the risks of coronavirus and alleviate these fears?

Thorough disinfection to eliminate fears

Schools are being encouraged to carefully develop an extensive cleaning and disinfection plan as they safely reopen to the public.

You can reassure parents, teachers, and students that health and safety come first with our state-of-the-art Disinfection Service. Using our advanced Liquid Dispersal Technology to rapidly eliminate pathogens on surfaces, your school will be safe to re-enter just 30 minutes after the service is complete.

When used properly, frequent, routine disinfection is a powerful tool to help reduce the spread of coronavirus. Don't wait to start protecting students, staff, and visitors with a comprehensive Disinfection Service plan. Schedule your complimentary school site assessment today.

What is the difference between disinfection and cleaning?

You may have questioned why professional disinfection is a necessity for schools. Is disinfection the same as the routine cleaning practices performed by janitorial staff? The truth is, janitorial staff typically spend time “cleaning” school buildings, rather than disinfecting them.

Disinfection works by using chemicals to kill germs on surfaces and objects. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection.

Cleaning works by using soap (or detergent) and water to physically get rid of germs from surfaces. This method does not necessarily kill germs. This is why professional disinfection is essential in addition to the routine cleaning procedures done by school staff.

Protecting your school fleet amid COVID-19

Enclosed spaces are at high-risk for the spread of coronavirus – and that includes the vehicles in your school's fleet.

School busses, maintenance trucks, motorized carts, and administrative cars have dozens of high-touch surfaces that can spread coronavirus, all of which need to be thoroughly disinfected regularly to reduce risk.
