Daytime cleaning isn’t simply nighttime cleaning done during the day. Custodial personnel will need to implement several changes to their existing program, starting with the products used. Re-evaluating the chemicals used is critical in the development of a successful day cleaning program.

Powerful cleaners that remove dirt and kill bacteria, but minimally impact indoor air quality (such as low volatile organic compound products) are a must. This is essential, especially around vulnerable populations, or those with asthma and other chemical sensitivities.

Green certified products, or those that reduce chemical usage should also be evaluated when implementing day cleaning. Whenever possible, it’s best to use only neutral or chemical-free cleaners and water.
