Pittsburgh Schools Can Earn an A+ by Cleaning Over Summer Break

“No more homework, no more books…” School is out for the summer, an ideal time for a commercial cleaning company to make your school shine. There’s so much to do to prepare for the new school year. While there may be summer classes, training or even some camps scheduled, cleaning while hallways and classrooms have limited use makes perfect sense.

Key Areas to Clean over the Summer:


The janitorial staff has wiped down desks and swept the floors all year, but summer is the time to aim high and low! From lighting fixtures and tops of white boards and chalkboards to the insides of empty desks and cubbies, summer is the time to clean every nook and cranny. This is also a great time for details such as dusting book shelves, polishing door handles and cleaning the blinds.


The highest foot-traffic areas need great attention during the summer months. Classrooms, the front office, cafeteria, and hallways and stairways all get dirty. Keeping the floors clean improves the appearance of the school and can positively affect the morale of students, staff and families.


Carpets need to be cleaned. Stained carpets are so noticeable. Summer is the perfect time for spot cleaning or deep cleaning.

Hard Floors

We all remember the days of going to orientation to meet our teachers, and one of the first things we noticed were those shiny, clean floors. This is a time-consuming process, so the timing is critical if you want to be prepared before teachers return for their workdays. Your commercial cleaning company can polish, strip and wax to keep the floors looking pristine.

Gym & Locker Rooms

Areas filled with sweaty students make the perfect hiding places for germs. Gymnasiums definitely need a thorough cleaning. The rubber floor should be cleaned properly and with the right cleaning equipment. Lockers should be wiped down and sanitized. Shower stalls should be inspected for grout cleanliness and broken tiles, and the bathrooms should be deep cleaned and disinfected while features such as door handles and faucets should be polished. Bleachers should also get the once-over; think of all those crevices that may be overlooked during the year. Allow your students, faculty and parents to focus on school spirit or the important topic of your next meeting or assembly.

Start the next academic year with a clean school that your community can be proud of, and consider periodic commercial cleaning throughout the school year, as well as over winter and spring breaks.
