School Hygiene: Why Is It Important?

By 8 December 2015July 26th, 2020No Comments

School cleaning services and the hygiene of a school is very important for a variety of reasons, spanning from simple health considerations to the reputation of the school itself. Here, we run through some of these reasons and explain a little more about the individual points:

The spread of disease

Firstly, practising proper hygiene at your school is important in order to stop the spread of germs and protect the health of your workforce and visitors alike. In communal spaces of the school including toilets, desks and eating areas, objects can be rife with germs in a matter of moments once hundreds of children have descended upon them. For this reason, it is very hard to keep these areas sanitary without a reputable, expert school cleaning service.



By reducing the number of germs and subsequent spread of disease throughout your school, there will be less children who become infected by bugs that are circulating. As a result of this, there will be lower levels of absences, ensuring that your school’s pupils are able to be at school, learning and not missing lessons at home instead.


Reputation of the school

It goes without saying that an unhygienic school is one that could easily come under fire from school inspectors and even simply the general public. By creating a reputation for having an unhygienic school, you may not pass simple inspections designed to test schools, and your popularity and number of admissions may well take a hit too.


Carbon/grease build-ups in the kitchen

Kitchens are one of the areas which can easily succumb to serious, deeply entrenched dirt such as carbon and grease build-ups. Without adequate cleaning measures, this dirt and grime can make the food preparation areas and equipment unsanitary for use, and could potentially cause food poisoning should the areas become unhygienic as a consequence.
