Commercial cleaning services which specialise in childcare centres can assist in preventing the spread of illness-causing bacteria and viruses by safely and hygienically disinfecting all surfaces daily.
Hand washing in childcare centres is one of the most important ways of helping to stop the spread of illnesses and maintain a hygienic environment. This relates to not only the children, but staff as well.
Hand Hygiene Australia states that effective hand washing should take from 40 to 60 seconds. This includes wetting hands with warm running water, cleaning them thoroughly (don’t forget to do in between the fingers), rinsing hands, and drying hands meticulously with a paper towel.
There are never too many times to wash your hands in a childcare environment. Gloves can also be worthwhile for workers who regularly come into contact with bodily fluids. Employees who do wear gloves should ensure they wash their hands before and after using them.
This point is imperative for childcare centres, and indeed all workplaces. Commercial cleaning services and hand washing can assist in limiting the spread of illnesses, but the best way to prevent the spread entirely is by keeping the sick person at home and away from the centre. Some childcare facilities have an exclusion policy when it comes to sick children, and staff members who are unwell should also stay home until they are no longer infectious.Childcare centres face a number of hygiene issues. By using a reputable commercial cleaning service, instituting correct hand washing procedures, and excluding sick children or staff members, you can help limit the spread of illnesses in your facility.
