Educational cleaning presents a number of challenges, in part because sanitation and cleanliness are not top of mind for most students, who are rightfully more focused on their lessons than they are on the cleanliness of their school.
Our goal when cleaning an educational facility is not only to create an impeccably clean learning environment but, more importantly, to minimize the spread of germs and bacteria in a very high-traffic environment.
The places in schools that harbor the most germs are a bit surprising. Bathrooms, for example, are not necessarily a hotbed for germs because they are more regularly cleaned, while cafeteria trays and desktops are much more likely to be a place for significant germ transfer.
CSG can work with your educational facility to keep these areas as clean as possible to keep your staff and students happy and healthy so they can attend work and school without missing a lesson.
Important Educational Cleaning Concerns
Cleaning a school or educational facility isn’t just about providing a great-looking learning space. A clean educational space promotes a happy, healthy learning environment with improved attendance records. And by working with the right cleaning company, you can save money in the process.
The health and attendance of your school’s students and staff are key to your cleaning program. According to the Healthy Schools, Healthy People program, when it comes to cleaning your school, “It’s a SNAP!” SNAP!, or the School Network for Absenteeism Prevention program, states that infectious diseases account for 22 million lost school days for staff and students every year. Encouraging hand washing—as SNAP! does—is vital to stopping the spread of illness, but you must hire a cleaning company with educational cleaning experience to properly clean every high-touch surface.
CSG uses a sustainable, health-based approach to cleaning schools and will customize the program to fit your individual needs. Our environmentally friendly cleaning programs will improve indoor air quality and reduce the spread of germs throughout your facility. This leads to a healthier, more productive environment for students, faculty and staff.
When preventing the spread of the cold and flu viruses, the cleaning of your educational facility must be done in the same manner and to the same standard every time. Our quality control processes as well as the way we train all of our employees ensure your building will join you in the fight against germs.
The cost of cleaning and maintenance is a major concern for many educational facilities. Hiring a full, in-house team is expensive and hard to manage on your own. There are hiring and training costs to contend with, plus the cost of paying competitive rates to maintain a staff, buying and maintaining cleaning equipment, and supplying cleaning products.
With our efficient services, CSG will help reduce your costs while maintaining or even improving the quality of service you receive. Included in our program are pre-scheduled floor-care services to ensure periodic services are scheduled in advance for optimum appearance and asset preservation. We’ll work hard to extend the life of your school’s floors so you spend less money repairing and replacing them.
To prolong the life of your carpet, hardwood, tile or any other type of flooring, regular care is required. Fortunately, CSG keeps track of this so you don’t have to. With kids in the building, any number of spills or accidents can happen; we are there to make sure these don’t become permanent stains and remind you when it’s time for floor-care services to extend the life of your floor.
You will never have to worry about equipment breaking down—we guarantee our equipment will have zero downtime and supply all the equipment and products needed to care for your school.

School Cleaning Services: The Types of Educational Facilities We Clean
Depending on the type of educational facility you are running, different types of cleaning expertise might be required. In elementary schools or preschools, you must take into consideration younger children’s immune systems, which are not as resilient as those of the older students. These younger students are also less likely to wash their hands properly and more likely to spread illness as a result.
At any age level, regular school cleaning services are crucial to keep your students healthy, well and in attendance in school.
High-traffic areas are different depending on the type of educational facility, too. CSG has the knowledge to clean any type of facility, regardless of their needs. Cleaning Services Group provides cleaning services to these types of educational facilities:
- Colleges and universities.
- Technical and vocational school campuses.
- K-12, private and charter schools.
- High schools.
