How to Deep Clean School Areas Efficiently

Want to know how to deep clean school areas efficiently? Trust us; you aren’t the only one.

Over the last few years, everyone has been paying more attention to how high-traffic areas like schools are sanitized. Failing to maintain your facilities can expose you to the ire of parents and endanger pupils and faculty.

If you want to keep students and staff safe, you must shift away from old-school methods. Instead, we recommend investing in modern equipment like Intelligent Design Manufacturing’s X-Scrub line of high-powered floor scrubbers.

The Problem with Traditional Floor Cleaning Solutions

Traditional school cleaning strategies have clear drawbacks. Consider the following reasons.


Cleaning an entire campus takes hours. The typical cleaning checklist includes a dozen or more tasks, such as:

  • Wiping down light switches
  • Sanitizing touch points
  • Wiping off desks
  • Disinfecting tables and chairs
  • Sweeping
  • Mopping

That’s not even including periodic deep cleans. And if your janitorial staff encounters any surprises, they will fall behind schedule. This problem may force them to skip essential tasks, exposing students and staff to health risks when using spaces.


Cleaning schools can be time-consuming, tedious, and outright frustrating. Janitorial staff already have a lot on their plates. Recent changes to sanitization requirements have made their jobs even harder.

Adding seemingly endless tasks to their checklist can ruin morale and lower productivity. Ultimately, it can lead to employee turnover and leave you understaffed. At that point, deep cleaning your school will become even more challenging.


Hiring an outside cleaning company will help you spruce up high-traffic areas. But it creates an entirely new problem: These services are quite expensive. Even if you can afford them, they take funding away from other school projects.

Buying bulky ride-on floor scrubbers isn’t much better. Sure, they might help you clean your floors faster. However, they can easily cost tens of thousands of dollars. You’ll also have to find somewhere to store these massive machines.

IDM’s X-Scrub Lineup: How to Deep Clean School Spaces

Intelligent Design Manufacturing’s X-Scrub lineup can solve your deep cleaning problems. Our selection of powerful scrubbers includes the following machines:

X-Scrub Mini

The X-Scrub Mini is our most compact floor scrubber. It can effortlessly maneuver around tight corners and is perfect for cleaning these areas:

  • Classrooms
  • Restrooms
  • Activity areas
  • Narrow corridors
  • Underneath tables and desks
  • Closets
  • Any other congested space

The X-Scrub Mini is incredibly light, too. Your staff can easily roll it around your campus with minimal effort.

But don’t let its size fool you. The X-Scrub Mini is powerful enough to tackle just about any mess.

X-Scrub Pro

The X-Scrub Pro is larger and stronger than the Mini. It also has five times the chemical capacity and a pair of counter-rotating brushes to break up tough debris.

This floor scrubber can take on any hard floor surface, including:

  • Tile
  • Concrete
  • Gym floors

The X-Scrub Pro features a 17-inch-wide cleaning path, allowing your staff to quickly move through their checklist. Like all of our models, the X-Scrub Pro is cordless. This feature means your staff will no longer have to fight with a cumbersome cord as they clean the school.

X-Scrub Max

The X-Scrub Max is our largest power scrubber. It has a 20-inch-wide cleaning path, making it ideal for cleaning large, open spaces like:

  • Hallways
  • Cafeterias
  • Gyms
  • Weight rooms

Despite its size, the X-Scrub Max is one of our easiest-to-use machines because it is a self-propelled, walk-behind floor scrubber.

The X-Scrub Max has plenty of juice to power through big jobs. With a full charge, it operates on 4.5 hours of continuous run time. It also features a 15-gallon solution tank. That means more time will be spent cleaning and less will be wasted refilling the machine.
