A daycare facility or a childcare center must be clean in order to comply with government regulations for the safety and health of the children. Walls, toilets and even the ceiling must be inspected regularly, but people often forget to check the daycare facility floors.

Children spend most of their time on the floors playing with each other and toys, and if you are only mopping daily with some detergent then the floor may not be as clean as it should be. If the floor is carpeted, then it might be harboring with creepy crawlies and all types of allergens and a quick vacuum every few days may be leaving lots of debris and dust behind.

The Essentials of Daycare Facility Floor Cleaning

Floor cleaning at daycare facility must be detailed and free of toxins. Some of the things worth considering are:

Carpet Cleaning

  • Vacuum every day
  • Disinfect at least twice a week
  • Deep clean every 4-6 months, in case of a major spill
  • Try wet vacuuming as it is more effective than dry vacuuming

Hard Flooring

  • Clean dirt and dust daily or several times in a day, depending on the requirement. Use a wet mop and disinfect highly used areas at last twice or thrice a week.
  • Use gentle detergent for cleaning after removing the dust
  • If using a vacuum with a filter, check frequently and change if required
