Apr 10,2022: Classroom Area Rugs

A reminder from the Members at April’s RMM that in-classroom area rugs (returning to service during this endemic period) may need to be vacuumed as often as nightly. However, the machinery & products used by the District to shampoo these rugs are not adequate to completely sanitize them. Custodial staff should not attempt to clean in-classroom area rugs with the District’s carpet extraction machines.

Area rugs that require deeper cleaning than vacuuming need to be sent to the approved contractor by school Admin at the school’s expense.

A copy of the original memo regarding this issue will be available through L520’s Safety Chair & Committee.
