School is Back and So is the Need to Be Clean

Just as the students are back at their desks, the Sunshine team is hard at work helping schools of all sizes ensure high traffic and high touch areas are germ-free and sparkling clean. Throughout its nearly 50-year history, the company has had extensive experience caring for educational institutions, from pre-schools to multi-campus universities. When classrooms are clean and germ-free the risk of illness goes down and attendance goes up, which is of critical importance to all educational institutions.

Why is the Sunshine touch so valuable to schools?

  • Green Products –At Sunshine, we have an in-depth and thorough process for choosing cleaning products. We conduct careful research and work closely with our vendors with the overall goal to maximize effectiveness while using the least amount of chemicals possible. Our vendors are well informed about the latest and most effective and safe Green cleaning agents. They guide us on the best products that are safe for our technicians as well as the occupants of the facilities we clean. We look for products certified by the EPA’s Safer Choice program or other respected third parties, such as Green Seal or Ecologo. We also look to such resources as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP) program as well as guidance from the U.S. Green Building Council.
  • Germs Be Gone – Our signature Hygienic Clean ™ disinfecting service goes beyond simply using a highly effective and safe Electrostatic spraying system. Our managers are certified in contamination control measures for infectious disease outbreaks such as COVID-19 and other variants. They are trained and experienced in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from biohazards. Therefore, the schools we serve enjoy the latest and most effective procedures available for combating numerous bacteria and viruses, including COVID-19 and its variants, MRSA, E coli, H1N1.

What extra steps do we take to keep schools clean?

  • High-touch, High-care – In schools especially our team members understand the importance of paying extra attention to such high touch areas as door knobs. When younger students are involved, all items in a classroom that are touched by little hands are cleaned often and with care, including all surfaces, desktops, seats, play areas and cubbies.
  • Extra Floor Care – During the summer months and school breaks, we make sure our school customers receive deep carpet cleaning, floor polishing and other complete floor maintenance, so that during busy school days, on-going care and cleaning is more manageable.
  • Restrooms – Because in schools, these areas can be the epi-center of germ creation, we often provide day cleaners to help maintain and service restrooms throughout the day. Keeping these areas clean helps keep students out of the nurse’s office and in the classroom.

Students are our future; therefore, keeping the areas where they learn and study every day clean and disinfected is an important investment for any educational facility.
