3 Services to Schedule for Your School This Cold and Flu Season

Learn how we go above and beyond other school cleaning companies in Wisconsin to keep your staff and students healthy.


We’re proud to be one of the most experienced school cleaning companies in Wisconsin.Back to school is an exciting time for anyone who works in education — welcoming new and returning students, stocking up on fresh school supplies, and a sparkling clean school facility are all signs of a new school year. With all of this excitement, though, means cooler temperatures and cold and flu season are not far behind.

At KleenMark, we have 60 years of experience in commercial cleaning and facility management, so we know a thing or two about keeping schools, students and educators safe and healthy. If you’re looking for school cleaning companies in Wisconsin that can go above and beyond for your educational organization, our team is ready to help.

Here are three services we suggest scheduling for your school this fall to keep students, staff, and visitors alike healthy and happy throughout cold and flu season:

  1. High-touch surface sanitization
  2. Day porter services
  3. Adding hand-washing signage

Keep reading to learn more about these services and what helps KleenMark stand out from other school cleaning companies in Wisconsin!


High-touch surface sanitization

The first and perhaps most important step toward “sickness proofing” your school is to disinfect and sanitize any high-touch surfaces such as door handles, stair railings, desks and counters. These are areas where many people touch throughout the day and where viruses can live, in some cases, for up to three days. Ideally, we will incorporate this disinfection and sanitization process during your facility’s nightly cleaning routine and perform touch-ups as part of our day cleaning services. Speaking of which…


Day porter services

Heavily trafficked facilities like schools typically need additional cleaning beyond just after-hours cleaning. A day porter will clean and disinfect in-between night crews. Day porters are the unsung heroes, handling high-touchpoint disinfection, restroom checks and any other unplanned janitorial needs that arise during the school day. Our day porter services provide much-needed daytime coverage to make sure your students, staff and visitors are welcomed into a clean and comfortable facility.

Our day porters can also work in tandem with your school’s in-house janitorial staff, providing supplemental staffing that can help address your recruiting and staffing challenges. Learn more about our supplemental staffing for schools here!


Add hand-washing signage

Students and staff are the first line of defense in preventing the spread of illnesses, and posting hand-washing reminders in restrooms and cafeteria areas can be helpful to encourage them to lather up frequently throughout the day. As one of the top school cleaning companies in Wisconsin, we offer our clients a toolkit that has basic signage they can use to remind people to take these basic steps. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also is an excellent resource for free posters.
