How often do you get your daycare center cleaned? If your answer is once a week or less, everyone at your facility could be at risk of serious health complications, especially the kids.
Daycare centers need far more frequent and thorough cleaning than other businesses. That’s because kids greatly outnumber adults at a daycare center.
Fewer adults and more kids mean more mess. More germs. More bacteria. And a significantly higher chance of everyone in your facility catching infections and diseases.
So for that reason alone, proper hygiene should be your top priority.
But that’s not the only reason why keeping clean is so important for a daycare center. Here are three more reasons why a spotless facility means more success for your daycare business.
1. More Clients
When you’re giving parents (potential clients) a tour of your daycare center, one of their biggest concerns about allowing you to take care of their children is whether you’re capable of keeping them safe.
An unorganized, disheveled, and unclean environment will not earn their trust.
Instead, a lack of cleanliness will make parents question your commitment to your work and their children — which, to state the obvious, is not what you want.
A clean and tidy environment, on the other hand, will give your potential clients the confidence they need to leave their children in your care.
2. Fewer Lawsuits
Since children get into everything they can reach and touch, everything in your center, from toys and books to floors and walls, will be a breeding ground for bacteria and germs.
So unless your center is cleaned regularly, it’s only a matter of time until a child in your facility develops a serious illness.
If a child contracts an illness or infection when in your care, their parents may pursue legal action against you — which can be a total nightmare.
Even a single lawsuit can cause multiple problems for your business, including:
● Bad publicity. No one wants to send their child to a center where other kids are getting sick
● Client withdrawals. Your current clients may also remove their children from your care
● Legal bills. Legal fees and settlements could end up costing you a lot more than your budget can support
Sounds bad, right? Well, the good news is you don’t have to go through any of that as long as you keep your daycare center clean as a whistle.
3. More Referrals
The happier your customers, the more successful your business will be because when your customers are satisfied with your service, they recommend it to their family and friends.
As we explained earlier, parents are much more comfortable and happier leaving their children in a clean environment. So a clean center equals more referrals and organic growth for your business.
Hire a Commercial Cleaning Company Instead

Even if your employees are willing to put in the effort to clean, they won't get the job done right because of their lack of experience. A commercial cleaning company, on the other hand, will ensure every surface in your daycare center is spotless.
