Every day, clean the same areas in the same sequence in order to guarantee complete cleaning. Any surface that has been exposed to visible dirt, such as body fluids, should be disinfected as away.
Organize the lobbies, including the doorknobs, light switches, pens and pencils, cubbies, carpets and stairwells as well as the walls, floors and railings.
After each diaper change, the diaper changing area should be disinfected. Even if the caregiver is wearing gloves, they must wash their hands after each diaper change. Infectious gastroenteritis caused by rotavirus and norovirus is readily transmitted and may lead to dehydration, which can be deadly.
Clean shelves, play centres and play surfaces in the children's area. Smaller, more durable toys can be washed in the dishwasher, while others can be wiped clean. If the item can be washed in the washing machine, use chlorine bleach or non-chlorine bleach.
Clean the sinks, toilets, floors, rugs, doorknobs, and light switches in the bathroom. Kitchen rugs, faucets, refrigerator knobs, stools (including high chairs), tables (including countertops), and garbage cans all need to be scrubbed clean before using them again.
The center's doorknobs, shared keyboards, drinking fountains, faucet handles, toilet levers, toys, and sleep mats all need special care. Surfaces, where children may come into contact with, must be cleaned and disinfected or sanitized at all times during the day.
