When you call in a professional to clean up your playground, they are there both to remove debris and sanitize your surfaces. This, in turn, makes your playground a safer place for kids to play. Debris, which can present serious tripping hazards, is cleared away, and any bacteria or pathogens are removed by the cleaning solution used. For most playgrounds, the best professional cleaning approach is a soft wash. This type of cleaning utilizes less pressure and heat than a traditional pressure wash, opting instead for a customizable cleaning solution and moderate pressure that removes dirt and debris without potentially damaging the playground’s structures. When is the right time to opt into a professional playground cleaning
? Let’s explore.
As a rule of thumb, a playground should be cleaned about as frequently as a bathroom would be. This frequency is proportional to how often the playground is used, and by how many people. Spot cleaning a few times a week is a standard guideline for keeping playgrounds clean and safe, in addition to professional cleaning every few months. If you’re looking into professional cleaning for an at-home playground, it’s likely that you can get away with professional cleaning about once or twice a year; for public playgrounds, this can be more often depending on how well-frequented your area is.
