While teaching and learning should be the top priorities in New Jersey schools and elsewhere, there are a variety of distractions that can pull teachers’ and students’ attention away from education. An unclean environment, for example, can affect everyone’s health and productivity. Here’s how a janitorial service can help ensure that everyone stays healthy and focused in the classroom.
How a Clean School Boosts Health
1. Fewer Sick Students
Schools are common breeding grounds for viruses and bacteria, which can cause illness to circulate quickly. Sick students are more likely to miss key lessons, fall behind, and earn lower grades. Luckily, a professional janitorial service can reduce germs by cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting all areas of the school on a daily basis, especially high-touch surfaces like doorknobs, tables, and light switches.
2. Healthier Teachers
Like students, teachers are subject to germs in schools and can catch the same illnesses that circulate among students. When teachers have to call in sick, their lesson plans are disrupted, which can affect student learning and performance. Even if they are feeling only slightly under the weather, teachers may feel fatigued or run down, which can interfere with the amount of energy they have to teach. A clean school will minimize the circulation of germs and bacteria to help keep teachers healthy.
3. Reduced Allergies
Dust, pollen, and mold are common allergens that can trigger a range of unpleasant symptoms among both children and adults, such as itchy eyes, sneezing, and coughing. Fortunately, thorough cleaning by a janitorial service can get rid of these irritants, so they don’t result in uncomfortable or even dangerous respiratory reactions among the school population.
4. Better Mental Health
Dirty, disorganized environments can cause a range of mental health problems, including anxiety, stress, tension, and lack of focus. Cleanliness, on the other hand, leads to calm and peaceful feelings. In a clean environment, teachers can remain positive and productive, while students stay alert, engaged, and receptive. Additionally, parents can feel more comfortable, assured that their children are in a safe and healthy learning environment.
