How to Continue With In-Person Learning Without Risking The Safety of Your Students

by | Oct 23, 2020 | disinfectant

Your school just opened its doors a couple of months ago after not seeing its students since March. 

With the flu season ramping up and COVID-19 showing no signs of disappearing anytime soon, the likelihood that you’ll have to resort back to online schooling is increasing daily.

You’ve tried having your teachers disinfect their classrooms after each class and this has only proven to be inefficient, time-consuming, and expensive

But don’t give up just yet. 

These three specific steps can help you keep your students safe and continue in-person learning.

1. Find a disinfectant that lasts

Standard disinfectant obviously doesn’t last very long if your teachers are having to reapply it multiple times a day. In an average classroom with seven classes per day, teachers that disinfect after each class perform 35 cleanings per week. 

In Louisiana, where the school year is 177 days, that equates to 1,239 cleanings per teacher this school year.

Because COVID-19 is so contagious and spreads like wildfire, traditional disinfectant alone won’t cut it. Stop hustling to clean between each class and start using OMNIShield.

This protective spray works by covering your initial layer of disinfectant and bonding to surfaces to create an antimicrobial shield that can last for up to 3 months. Simply spray down your disinfectant and follow suit with OMNIShield for up to 90 days of continuous protection. 

2. Allow the disinfectant to dry for the proper amount of time

Traditional disinfectant starts working once it’s completely dry, and one of the biggest mistakes that schools are making is not allowing it to dry for the time recommended by the manufacturer. 

Kids coming in and putting their hands and books all over the desk while it’s still wet is just as ineffective as using no disinfectant at all. If teachers only have 5 minutes to clean in between classes and the product requires 10 minutes to dry, this simply won’t work.

Fortunately, because OMNIShield can last for so long and dries within 5 minutes, it can be applied whenever is convenient for you–so long as you leave it untouched while it dries. No more worrying about your students coming in and dirtying up your freshly sanitized surfaces.

3. Make sure every nook and cranny are covered

One of the biggest problems that teachers are experiencing with traditional disinfectant is the lack of time and equipment necessary to thoroughly clean every inch of their classrooms. 

Knowing that their classrooms aren’t fully disinfected can be very stressful and distracting, not to mention, dangerous.

Unfortunately, without an electrostatic sprayer and the time necessary to cover the entire room, teachers really only have the time to wipe off the desks between classes. 

And that just won’t cut it. 

Given that COVID particles can travel over six feet, every nook and cranny of your classrooms need to be accounted for. Classrooms should be disinfected with an electrostatic sprayer and a protectant spray that can last longer than a few hours. 

Thankfully, with OMNIShield (and an electrostatic sprayer), you can ensure that every centimeter of your classroom is protected against viruses and bacteria–for up to 90 days! 

Shrink 1,239 cleanings per year down to four with OMNIShield. Keep your school open, save time and money, and enhance your student safety plan with this revolutionary spray.

Make sure your students and staff are protected this year without spending more money (that you simply don’t have), or wasting time using disinfecting methods that are actually making your school more vulnerable to an outbreak.

Try OMNIShield. This innovative protectant spray shields your surfaces from viruses and bacteria for up to 90 days, unlike common disinfectants that only last for a few hours (if even).
