Hiring a Professional School Disinfection Service: What to Look For


school disinfection School should be a safe and healthy place where children and adults can go to focus on learning and having fun. No matter what type of school, whether it’s an elementary school or a university, biological risks like germs, bacteria, and other hazards exist. Even highly stringent cleaning and disinfection protocols can struggle to keep up with the high level of disinfection needed in educational facilities. Additionally, there are many cleaning and disinfection regulations and standards to which education facilities must adhere. For this reason, all educational facilities can benefit from hiring professional school disinfection specialists.


What to Look for in a School Disinfection Service:


  • OSHA Compliant
    • A high-quality, reliable school disinfection service will operate within OSHA compliance and follow the most current CDC guidance regarding virus disinfection and control. Your school also must remain OSHA compliant because, as an employer, your school is required to protect employees from recognized hazards. By hiring an OSHA-compliant school disinfection specialist, your school will remain in adherence with OSHA regulations.
  • Safe & Effective Cleaning Methods
    • Be sure that your disinfection service uses the correct methods including the correct chemicals and cleaners. Some cleaning services simply use bleach or other surface disinfectants to clean surfaces but that may actually just move germs around and not actually eliminate resistant germs and bacteria. Use a disinfecting service that is EPA certified to kill resistant pathogens like Cdiff, as well as mold, fungi, bacteria, and viruses. 
  • IICRC Certified School Disinfection Service
    • It is important to hire a disinfection service that is IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) Certified. The IICRC is a “certification and standard-setting non-profit organization for the inspection, cleaning, and restoration industries.” Work with a school disinfection service that prioritizes having a stringent virus demobilization process for all of their equipment, trucks, and waste storage areas to ensure you are optimally protecting your school.
