The importance of disinfecting your home or workplace cannot be overstated. Even prior to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, many indoor and outdoor premises alike with high foot traffic or high presence of vulnerable groups were already engaging regular disinfection services.
For schools and childcare centres, regular disinfection is especially crucial to keeping young children safe. Singapore’s Ministry of Health even outlines specific infection prevention guidelines for childcare centres and primary schools as a sector, highlighting the unique vulnerability of their students.
Hygiene lapses like the December 2020 salmonella and stomach flu outbreak and possible April 2021 gastroenteritis situation remind us of how easily these diseases and illnesses can spread in such environments, and how severely affected young children can be.
Get in touch with us to find out more about Lumiair’s deep cleaning and disinfection services for indoor and outdoor premises in Singapore. We understand that educators have the best interest of their students and charges at heart, as well as a unique understanding of the common hygiene concerns of the sector. Our trained decontamination team can recommend tailored decontamination solutions to eliminate common pathogens and soothe your specific hygiene concerns.
Common Pathogens in Schools and Childcare Centres
As children’s immune systems are not fully developed yet, they are more susceptible to pathogens that may only mildly or moderately affect adults. In extreme cases, this could lead to severe illness, hospitalisation, or even death. Some possible pathogens and infectious diseases that can be found in schools and childcare centres include:
- Hand-foot-and-mouth disease (HFMD)
- Head lice
Children under the age of 5 are particularly susceptible to HFMD, and symptoms can quickly spread between children before being noticed. As HFMD can be present year-round and is not a seasonal concern, it is important to regularly disinfect your premises to avoid HFMD outbreaks.
Both parents and educators have a responsibility to help prevent outbreaks of any of these diseases; parents should avoid sending their child to school if they display symptoms, and educators should regularly disinfect their premises and adopt a strict hygiene and cleaning routine to ensure their spaces remain sanitary. Many cleaning companies in Singapore including Lumiair can offer customised deep cleaning services and solutions to tackle common concerns of childcare centres and schools.
How We disinfect your Premises
Lumiair uses our own proprietary technology to carry out our disinfection services. This ensures thorough cleaning of even microscopic airborne contaminants including soot, tobacco smoke, and viruses. Our equipment includes:

- Protective anti-microbial treatment to prevent and control the growth of micro-organic contaminants

For schools and childcare centres, it is important to deep clean all surfaces as well as regularly scrub the air for any airborne contaminants and particles.
