Keeping Indoor Play Areas Safe and Healthy
Improperly maintained play area equipment poses a safety hazard that may result in injuries or even death to children. Conduct routine physical facility inspections to assure equipment is maintained in good repair and follow manufacturer’s maintenance instructions or checklists.
Indoor play area surfaces should be cleaned and sanitized daily or more often. Even if indoor play area surfaces look clean, they may still be contaminated with germs (i.e., bacteria and viruses). It is important to properly clean and sanitize or disinfect surfaces that may be contaminated to reduce harmful germs that may cause illness and disease.
