As a playground manufacturer and installation company, we abide by the Australian Safety Standards when it comes to building and installing playgrounds. Products are manufactured to ensure entrapment doesn’t happen to keep your kids safe. When installing our team make sure things are to the correct heights and the appropriate soft fall material is utilised for each individual situation.
The ongoing cleaning of playground equipment after it’s handed over to the client is rarely something that we as a team ever thought about.
I mean playgrounds are made up of mostly steel and plastic so germs, bacteria and viruses would die right?
Did you know?
Some viruses can last for hours, days or even weeks on certain surfaces. It depends on the type of virus; type of surface and the environment also plays a big part in either its survival or demise.
We all know kids like to touch stuff and eventually they will put their hands in their mouths, this is inevitable. Sadly playgrounds can be a breeding ground for germs, especially if they aren’t cleaned on a regular basis.
So, with all this craziness in the world at the moment, it’s a good time to think about how often your schools, local parks and indoor playgrounds are being cleaned and is it being done correctly.
Providers out there that specialise in cleaning indoor and outdoor playgrounds in Queensland.
The best advice we can give is to make sure your kids wash their hands after playing on any playground equipment.
