5 Must-Haves for Effective Education Cleaning

Monday, August 29th, 2022


How do you make the right choice when it comes to sourcing a new cleaner for your educational premises? Here are five important things to look for, whether you’re searching in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth or beyond.

Disinfection to Break the Chain of Infection

While everyone wants to turn up to a visibly clean classroom every day, there’s also more to consider when it comes to infection control. Primary schools, secondary schools and childcare settings can be prime places for viruses and bacteria to spread, which is why breaking the chain of infection is so important. Look to a provider who will not only clean away dirt and grime, but also carry out regular specialist surface disinfection to actively kill harmful pathogens on shared surfaces.

Specific training for education cleaning

Educational settings are very different to those of an office or retail store, and as such it’s worth searching specifically for education cleaners rather than generic business cleaning services. Specialist school cleaners or childcare cleaners are better equipped to identify high-traffic areas and develop a site-specific cleaning strategy for your learning environment. Such tailored cleaning can help to minimise asthma triggers, reduce student and staff illness and ultimately provide peace of mind for families.

Effective yet safe cleaning techniques

Cleaning products and processes don’t need to be harsh to be effective, and there are several advantages to using gentler techniques for education cleaning. It’s better for the environment and also better for the health of students, staff, visitor and cleaners. There are a few ways we approach safe cleaning. One is to prioritising the selection and sourcing of biodegradable, non-toxic cleaning products. Another is to train our cleaners thoroughly and equip them with quality products to avoid the overuse of chemicals.

Formal frameworks for quality

As with any commercial cleaning, you should have the utmost confidence in your school cleaning service standards and feel that there’s always someone you can contact should you have questions or concerns. As an example, here are just a few ways we formalise our quality management processes at AMC:

  • Developing and working to structured cleaning KPIs
  • Maintaining 5 pillars of quality across Satisfaction, Service, Simplicity, Safety and Sustainability
  • Providing you with a dedicated Site Supervisor and Customer Service Manager
  • Using an externally audited Integrated Management System in line with our certifications for quality, OHS and environmental performance.

Friendly & reliable faces

Whether you need school or college cleaning, childcare cleaning or daycare cleaning, it’s ultimately people who make the biggest difference. It’s why we choose people who genuinely care to join our team, and ensure our cleaning teams have had background checks within each cleaning franchise. This extra care, attention and training makes for a cleaning team that’s reliable, trustworthy and a joy to see around in your learning environment.
