Calling all schools – it’s that time of year again…
When the kids are gearing up for the long summer holidays, the school maintenance teams are gearing up for the big deep clean.
With this in mind, we’ve got a free-to-download guide here from Robert Scott, with a showcase of their cleaning equipment, specially selected for all those planning a big blitz on schools and other education spaces.

Top ten tips for the cleanest classrooms and corridors:
- Make your cleaning action plan before the summer holidays and target all areas that can’t be tackled every day.
- Don’t forget to collate your risk assessments and proper signage first to comply with health and safety!
- It’s a good time to clean the storage areas for all your janitorial items – and do a full stocktake and audit.
- Remove unused or out of date products, replace disposable products with reusable ones, and see where you can introduce anything more sustainable.
- The deep clean itself is a two-stage process, firstly to clean and secondly to sanitise and disinfect.
- Begin with a clean and sanitise of all surfaces – including floors and walls.
- Remove any obstructions and furniture and sweep and dust all surfaces to remove debris – a V-sweeper makes it easy to dust under and around things.
- Use a floor scraper on chewing gum or dried-on grime on hard surfaces.
- Deep clean the floors using rotary machines or scrubber dryers – use standard floor pads to strip floors before replacing polishes and sealants.
- After stripping has taken place, the final stage is laying polish to seal the floor.
