Having many years of experience means we have the knowledge and experience to build a school cleaning solution suitable for your budget.  

Hygiene

Every parent will confirm, nowhere do infections and minor illnesses spread faster than in schools. Schools are a hotspot for bacteria and viruses and a source for lots of common kid illnesses, especially for younger school-age kids whose immune systems are still maturing.

The Department of Education also reveal that 300,000 teachers take sickness leave each year, roughly equating to around 3 million lost teaching days.

Germs and bugs can spread rapidly, particularly round large institutions welcoming a large number of people every day. Minimising the risk through high standards of cleanliness and hygiene in schools, colleges and universities can decrease absenteeism and promote effective learning.

Which is why it is of paramount importance to maintain the highest standards of cleanliness in all educational establishments.

According, to the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee, one in 11 children has asthma and it is the most common long-term medical condition. On average there are three children with asthma in every classroom in the UK. Therefore it is vital that the school premises are kept clean to help prevent children from asthma. 

Educational establishments can be particularly demanding environments to clean. They require detailed specifications to reflect the term timetable and daily challenges of the environment.

We are experts in delivering a flexible and responsive school cleaning service which is diligently followed and delivered by our on-site teams.

The end result of our diligence and expertise is a cleaner, more sanitary environment and consequently fewer days lost through sickness among staff and pupils, leading to a better learning experience for pupils and a better working environment for teachers.

Challenges of School cleaning 

At SSClassic Cleaners, all our staff are aware that cleaning schools is very different from cleaning other work environments. There is a lot more pressure, since we can only clean outside school hours, and there is a lot more responsibility as we are helping to stop infections as children are not always as hygienic as adults, so there are sometimes more germs around. And of course, children are more vulnerable than adults, which adds another level of responsibility.

The main challenge of school cleaning is that they are under such financial pressure, and we overcome this by realigning schools’ expectations. This means identifying high traffic areas that need to be cleaned on a daily basis, and being more realistic about other more time-consuming areas that might not need such regular attention. We make savings for our clients this way, so SSClassic cleaners  gives unbeatable value for the budgetary constraints that schools may face.

Keeping children safe 

At SSClassic Cleaners, we know School cleaning is more important because it comes under safeguarding. Children need to be coming to a clean and hygienic environment, which is the best environment possible in order for them to learn.  

We understand that each school has unique safeguarding requirements. We adopt as many good practices as we can. We vet all our staff, ensuring they have enhanced DBS checks, and after that we put them on the update programme so we get updates on anything that may have been added to their record since their DBS check. We also offer safeguarding training. And, the products that we use are all 100% eco-friendly and Eco-Schools endorsed, with absolutely no allergens or harsh chemicals.
