Gold Coast School Cleaning Checklist

Friday, January 29th, 2021

Hygiene and cleanliness must be a top priority in schools to limit the spread of germs and infection and keep students and staff healthy and happy.
A school cleaning checklist is a great way to tick off cleaning tasks and ensure your school is suitably clean for everyone. To help get you started, we’ve prepared a handy Gold Coast school cleaning checklist to keep you organised and on track.

Use The Right Equipment & Products

Before you start any type of school cleaning, you need to wear the right uniform and equipment. Make sure every school cleaner is wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) to safeguard themselves against potential infection and injury. This can include gloves, boots, gowns or aprons, face masks, goggles and sunscreen.
Make sure you’re using high-quality products to clean your school, including detergents and a disinfectant containing at least 70% alcohol. Try to use natural, non-toxic products that are better for the environment and people.
