Back to School: Pressure Washing the Playground Equipment

The weather’s still blazing hot, but the children are back in school. This can only mean one thing: they’re itching to get outside and play. But, have you ever thought about the playground equipment that they climb on?

Left to the outdoor elements day after day, and vulnerable to germs of all kinds, playground equipment can be a highly contaminated surface. From bodily fluids to bugs and animal droppings to mold, playgrounds are at the top of the list for high levels of germs, bacteria, and disease. And kids play on them!

DID YOU KNOW?: A hygiene surface test conducted by the International Journal of Environmental Health Research showed 44% of playground surfaces tested positive for urine, feces, mucus, saliva, and other blood-borne pathogens.
