School is Back in Session: How S.J. Services Can Help Start The Year Safe and Healthy

September is in full swing and so is the start of the school year. Along with classroom friendships and hands-on learning comes lots of germs and flu season. This year more than ever, it seems as if the world is just a petri dish of different colds and viruses. In order to ward off the almost inevitable onset of stuffy noses, keep reading to find out how hiring a professional cleaning service such as S.J. Services can help keep kids healthy while they return to school. 


Nightly Janitorial Services 

During the day, school will be filled with kids running around and everybody knows that cleaning up after children while they’re still around is impossible. Instead, opting for nightly janitorial services ensures professionals the space and time they need to properly clean and disinfect surfaces. 

Overnight cleaning allows the professionals to thoroughly clean the entire school building. There are countless surfaces in schools where germs can reside, from the more obvious ones such as bathrooms to the more insidious door knobs and table tops. 

Our overnight janitorial services also involve routine maintenance such as trash and recycling, carpet cleaning, and minor repairs. Our team will do their best every night to make sure that spaces are properly cleaned and disinfected, allowing for a safe learning environment the following day. 


Day (Or Night) Porter Services 

Different schools run on different schedules, depending on what time your bell rings, you may opt for the day or night porter services rather than the overnight janitorial service. This option allows consistent and frequent cleaning of communal spaces. Restocking and checking of restrooms, post-lunchtime cafeteria cleaning, floor touch ups, sanitizing of door handles and other common touch points, and trash/recycling duties. 

The day porter service would also work well in addition to the nightly janitorial services to maintain a consistent clean for heavily populated schools. Effectively fighting germ spread starts with prevention and staying ahead.
