Tired Floors?

Educational facilities have more hard-surface flooring than any other type of facility, so its important to hire a specialist to take care of them. Hard floor stripping and sealing maintains their appearance and helps them last longer. This consists of removing all old polish and exposing the original flooring or seal using suitable solvents and nylon pads. Following this we vacuum the area to remove any dirt, stains, deposits, solvents, polish and scuff marks from the floor. We then apply three coats of metallised emulsion floor polish. After sealing and polishing, the floors have a uniform lustre and will be free from streaks, scuffs and scratches.

 

Worse for wear kitchens?

Regular Kitchen Deep Cleaning can fix that! The Health and Safety Act and the Food Hygiene Act specify in great detail how a working kitchen must be maintained. If it is one of your top priorities to ensure safe food preparation of the children in your care, then let us get your kitchen into shape by thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting floors and walls, cooking equipment, extraction systems, canopies, filters and ductwork.

Mucky washrooms?

“The challenges involved with cleaning School Washrooms vary depending on the age of the children using them.” according to Lara Larsen, Buildings Supervisor. School toilets and showers are, unsurprisingly, breeding grounds for germs and bacteria. Whilst general daily cleaning provides a good level of cleanliness, deep cleaning targets the grime, dirt and lime scale built up in those hard to reach places, including sink overflows, toilet bowls and cisterns, around taps and shower heads, floors and walls especially those hard to reach corners and edges. (Find out more)

 

Grubby carpets?

Carpets in schools have a lot of daily traffic and improperly maintained carpets can cause health hazards due to the collection of dust, mould, bacteria and allergens such as dust mite waste. Regular deep cleaning helps restore the look of the carpets and keep it safe and hygienic for children to work and play on. To provide an incomparable clean, we use the multi-award winning Texatherm™ Cleaning System. This patented process combines unique chemical technology with heat and agitation to produce a capillary action. This safely deep cleans carpets and soft furnishing, delivering the benefits associated with both wet and dry cleaning systems, including; a formula that dries in less than 30 minutes, a clean and disinfected carpet, an anti-static coating to reduce future build up, no stretch, shrinkage or split seams, low moisture with no sticky residue, low noise application and an environmentally friendly PH neutral formula. (Find out more)

 

Contaminated Keyboards?
