How professional cleaning & maintenance empowers your school

Jul 6, 2023 | Asset Maintenance, Building services, Cleaning, Schools

The schooling environment is a key factor in how your students feel when attending school every day. Having a trusted provider for your facility’s cleaning, maintenance, and building requirements can make all the difference to their learning experience.

Here are 5 ways professional building maintenance can support your school:


1. Comfortable learning environment

A clean and hygienic learning environment is a great motivator for learning. Reliable commercial cleaning for indoor areas, tuck-shops, kitchens, and amenities can pleasantly refresh these areas, removing bad odors and providing a comfortable environment for learning and playing.

External building washing, pressure cleaning of concrete areas and pathways, and netball or tennis court cleaning can bring new life to frequently used areas prone to wear and tear, extending the life of these assets.


2. Safety first

Slippery floors, poorly marked ‘out of bounds’ zones, and busy stairs can quickly become safety hazards. Ensure your tiled and concreted areas are treated with a professional non-slip treatment to prevent slip accidents during wet weather and from spilled liquids. Strategic fencing, line marking, or bollard placement can prevent students from entering restricted areas, while stair nosings and grip tape can prevent accidents on busy stairs.


3. Functional design

The design and functionality of your classrooms can support different learning and teaching styles. Strategic partitions and operable walls can create multi-use spaces facilitating large and small group learning, while cabinetry design can incorporate functional storage and working spaces. Outside of the classroom, feature walls can signify key student zones while tactical shade sails will provide adequate sun safety protection.


4. Managing upkeep

While wear and tear is normal during the course of the school term, you should aim to thoroughly inspect your school during holidays to note maintenance repairs such as lightbulb replacements, faulty doorknobs, or worn-out carpet. Poor maintenance upkeep can make your students feel neglected or unimportant.


5. Aesthetically pleasing areas

The aesthetics of your premises is just as important as functionality when it comes to providing a great schooling environment. From classroom fit-outs to new colour palettes for different student zones, new projects can bring excitement, cheer, and school pride.

Larger building works require proper management and planning. Check with your provider if they offer project management and have the flexibility to deliver services during the school holidays to prevent interruption to learning.
