Clean Hard Surfaces In Your Facility
Even though the type of childcare facilities may vary, there is one thing they all have in common–hard surfaces that will most likely be touched by everyone…especially the children. Hard surfaces include doorknobs, countertops, plastic toys, backpacks, bathroom surfaces, faucets, and light switches. Basically, anything in your facility that the children would touch frequently. The easiest way to keep all hard surfaces clean is to use disposable disinfecting wipes. These are quick ways to kill most germs and bacteria. You can also have hand sanitizer available in multiple parts of your facility to use on the kids and your employees.
If you have time between classes or groups of children coming through your facility, it is recommended you do a deeper-clean wipe down of your hard surfaces by applying EPA-registered disinfectants or a mixture of hot water and soap. Use the soap mixture to scrub down all surfaces, then throw the rag, towel, or sponge into the dishwasher or washing machine when you’re done.
