How School Cleaning Services Can Help Reduce Absenteeism
Preventing the Spread of Illnesses
Schools are notorious breeding grounds for germs and viruses, with students and staff in close contact with one another for extended periods of time. By regularly cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and high-traffic areas, UMG Cleaning can help prevent the spread of illnesses like the flu, colds, and COVID-19. This reduces absenteeism among sick students and staff and helps prevent the spread of illness to others in the school community.
UMG Cleaning uses hospital-grade cleaning products and follows CDC guidelines to ensure thorough and effective disinfection of all surfaces. We pay particular attention to frequently touched surfaces like doorknobs, light switches, desks, and shared equipment.
Improving Air Quality
In addition to surface cleaning and disinfection, UMG Cleaning's school cleaning services also include air duct cleaning and HVAC system maintenance. This can help improve air quality in the school, reducing the presence of allergens, dust, and other contaminants that can contribute to respiratory problems and other health issues.
Improved air quality can help reduce absenteeism among students and staff who may be sensitive to these pollutants. It can also improve academic performance, as research has shown that poor air quality can negatively impact cognitive function and learning.
Creating a Clean and Inviting Learning Environment
A clean and well-maintained school can positively impact students' attitudes toward learning and school attendance. By creating a clean and inviting learning environment, UMG Cleaning can help reduce absenteeism caused by a lack of motivation or dissatisfaction with the school environment.
UMG Cleaning's school cleaning services include disinfection and regular deep cleaning of floors, carpets, and upholstery. This can help remove dirt, dust, and other debris accumulating over time and contributing to an unclean or unpleasant environment.
Reducing Stress and Anxiety
The COVID-19 pandemic has created heightened stress and anxiety for many students and staff members. By maintaining a clean and sanitized school environment, UMG Cleaning can help reduce this stress and anxiety and promote a sense of safety and security.
Knowing that their school is taking all necessary precautions to keep them safe can help reduce absenteeism among students and staff who may be hesitant to attend school due to concerns about the pandemic. It can also help reduce absenteeism among those experiencing stress and anxiety related to other factors, such as academic pressure or personal issues.
