School Cleaning Services: Stay on Budget without Sacrificing Cleanliness

With a shrinking cleaning budget and fewer custodial personnel, anyone in charge of school cleaning faces a difficult task. How do you keep a school system clean without asking for more funding? This goal sounds impossible, but innovations in cleaning systems make it a possibility. Here is what the best in school cleaning services can do for your school without forcing you to blow up your budget.

 

End the Cycle of Misspent Resources

 

A look at the typical school cleaning budget reveals the problems administrators face. Budgets are shrinking, and reports indicate 93 percent of resources are spent on labor, while the remaining amount (just seven percent) gets slotted for cleaning supplies. Whenever there is a cut in funding, the first place schools turn is here. As a result, cheap and outdated cleaning products become the primary tools of your custodial staff. This misguided priority list leaves cleanliness and overall efficiency to suffer.

 

Cleaning equipment that arrives piecemeal from different vendors is one obvious mistake to avoid. Employees cannot clean efficiently with mismatched cleaning products and tools that aren't designed to work together. Therefore, they spend much more time trying to clean rooms than they would with a streamlined system. Worse, the cleaning systems and tools they are using have been proven incapable of giving school restrooms and classrooms the thorough cleaning they require. The lion's share of the budget is spent on the labor of a cleaning team without the proper tools to do its job.

 

Innovations in School Cleaning Services

 

If your school's cleaning team is using mops, buckets, and rags to do its job, they are not removing the soils that contaminate surfaces and cause the spread of sickness and disease. Mops and rags are excellent at spreading bacteria around floors and desktops, but they are terrible at actually removing the soils that may contain dangerous germs. These germs could utimately cause sickness to spread among students, teachers, and staff members, hitting the budget in another way?in sick days and substitute costs. To reach a higher standard in cleaning, your cleaning crew must be able to remove these soils and truly clean for health.

 

No-touch Cleaning systems perform this job efficiently. Rather than using mops and rags, the system utilizes spray-and-vac technology. These systems combine automatic chemical metering and injection, an indoor pressure washer, and a powerful wet vacuum into an integrated system. Studies show they clean 30-60 times better than cotton and microfiber mops, in one-half to one-third the time. Bacteria and filth do not move from room to room in this system as they do when traveling with mops and buckets. Instead, soils are removed and contained on the spot.

 

With so much money spent on labor, administrators must consider investing in a multipurpose cleaning system that allows for a full, thorough cleaning of a school. Kaviac's No-Touch methods provide the cleanest and fastest results available. Your school budget can handle top-shelf solutions when you save on labor, training, chemicals and unnecessary equipment costs. Your schools will be cleaner, but the cleaning bill won't be bigger.
