Recent Delta strain is said to be as infectious as chickenpox and infecting higher rates of children and young adults than previous strains of SARS-CoV-2.

We know that if you’re in charge of education facility cleaning, you’ll want to be confident that your cleaning and disinfection services are being carried out thoroughly and proactively. Schools present so many opportunities for the transmission of viruses and bacteria, and these can spread more quickly than many of us can imagine in an educational environment. One infectious student or staff member might touch desks, chairs, door handles, light switches or other high-touch surfaces, and then move between various classrooms or areas of the school throughout any given day. So what can be done to minimise the risk and help protect the health of students and staff?


What to expect from your school cleaning service?

You can look to AMC Commercial Cleaning for a clear idea of what to expect from your school cleaning services, because our PROTECT+ cleaning sets and maintains a new benchmark in educational cleaning standards.

This detailed framework, together with a site-specific cleaning plan and dedicated Customer Services Manager, helps to keep people safe from heightened risk of exposure to contaminants in schools.

With over 30 years of experience in education sector, AMC’s PROTECT+ school cleaning and services at AMC Commercial Cleaning revolves around:

  • Targeted surface disinfection to high touch areas
  • Intensive cleaning to high traffic, high-risk areas
  • The use of TGA approved disinfectants to eliminate biohazards
  • Performance and quality management, which itself is driven by:
    – Tailored and measured KPIs
    – Site audits and online reporting
    – Customer portal and self-rating, and
    – Structured escalation processes to minimise risk.

So whether you’re arranging school cleaning in Auckland’s North Shore or Highbrook, or Waikato, you should be feeling confident that your cleaning provider is taking each of these elements seriously.

What should school cleaning KPIs include in the new COVID-19 normal?

Effective school cleaning requires a detailed and measurable approach to cleaning and specialised surface disinfection – however, your school cleaners’ KPIs should be extending well beyond this too. For example, our commercial cleaning teams meet a range of KPIs across every area of operations, including:

  1. On-site Satisfaction
  2. Operations Management
  3. Continuous Improvement
  4. Risk Management
  5. Environmental Aspects and Impact.

Right now and into the future, it’s essential to look to well-structured school cleaning in Auckland, Christchurch, Wellington and regional areas alike to protect tomorrow’s future.
