Thoroughly cleaning the learning environment is a big part of an education establishment’s duty of care towards its students.

“Thoroughly cleaning the learning environment is a big part of an education establishment’s duty of care towards its students,” says Tony Felgate, a Director of Monthind Clean LLP. “Thanks to health and safety legislation and simple practicality, the best time for a specialist team to come in is unquestionably during the holidays.”
With science laboratories, industrial-sized kitchens and large quantities of glass all falling under the remit of cleaning a school or university, sending in a team with just cloth dusters and a vacuum cleaner is not sufficient.
“Most schools have high-ceilinged sports halls but when the students are there, it can be difficult to find the right time to get a specialist, high-level cleaning team to tidy up the light fittings and access those hard to reach and inaccessible areas.”
Likewise, schools and universities are often built with numerous multi-level teaching blocks, meaning that, for just one educational establishment, hundreds of windows could need to be cleaned.
“Our window cleaning team’s biggest challenge is the University of East Anglia,” continues Tony, “they have a 70ft high, quarter-of-a-mile long, glass-fronted, Grade II listed teaching wall, which traditional window cleaners simply aren’t equipped to deal with. We bring in specialist water-fed cleaning poles, vehicles that allow our workers to clean at height and a large team of finishers to complete the job to a high standard. If we tried to do this during term time while people are still using the building, the logistics, health and safety issues and paperwork would be much more complicated.”
With specialist cleaning teams spread across the East Anglian region, Monthind Clean is ready and equipped to deal with the most challenging educational establishments from individual nursery school and playgroup buildings up to and including schools, colleges and multi-building university complexes, dormitories and student accommodation.
