Here at Grease Gone, we’re proud to boast numerous contracts with schools to ensure a clean and safe environment for pupils, teachers and staff. For our team however, cleaning schools is more than just a job.
Cleaning schools fills our entire team with such a huge sense of pride because not only does it help students by providing them with a clean and safe space, but it has such a positive impact on a child’s education and mental health that it’s beyond a mere ‘job’ – it has now become a personal mission to do all we can to provide the cleanest environment possible for students.
Beyond a cleaner environment
It’s not uncommon for parents to refer to schools as ‘germ factories’ and it’s no surprise really when statistics show that children under the age of six can often suffer from around eight common colds over one term.
With germs and viruses spreading at the rate of knots, it was only natural that schools would close during the pandemic. The time these children spent at home, instead of in a classroom, over the last 18 months is startling. Thankfully, with a professional cleaning company such as ourselves here at Grease Gone, getting children back into school was something we were able to achieve, anticipated by many.
You may be surprised to learn, however, that getting children back into school goes beyond the mere importance of ensuring a clean and safe place to educate. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that for some children, school is the only place they receive a hot meal. It’s also the only place where some children feel safe.
Clean, safe schools have a much bigger impact on society than many realise.
A clean space to feel good
A recent survey showed that over 80% of teachers have observed a very noticeable uplift in the behaviour of their students when working in a clean and tidy classroom.
Ensuring this emotional wellbeing by providing a better, cleaner environment doesn’t just ensure to help the student there and then, it also provides them with a better environment to learn which will affect their academic performance later down the line.
A clean space to achieve the best they can
A clean classroom doesn’t just help stop the spread of germs, it also helps provide an environment in which children can thrive and perform to the best of their ability. Sickness is reduced, as are distractions. Standards are heightened and children become used to a clean and safe space in which they’re able to achieve their very best.
A student’s environment will shape them so it’s crucial that we provide the best environment possible and a clean, tidy and organised one is the only way to go.
