The following tips will make the maintenance jobs a lot easier for park caretakers while getting your community playgrounds are ready for summer.

Summer Maintenance Tips for Community Parks

Conduct Regular Inspections

Inspect park amenities such as slides for any damage or wear and tear. The damaged parts should either be replaced or fixed in readiness for the imminent arrival of children.

Conduct regular field checks and check the safety of the equipment. Pick up any loose debris that may be hazardous to children.

Get Rid of Insect Colonies

Community parks have an assortment of flowering plants which can attract insects such as bees and wasps. Any hives created by such dangerous insects should be removed as these could pose a threat to children.

Pests and rodents can cause allergic reactions and pass diseases to young children. Pest control companies are better suited to this problem if it threatens to get out of hand.

Hygiene and Sanitation

Parks harbor all kinds of germs and diseases. Bodily fluids such as saliva, mucus, and urine carry germs which are then transferred to monkey bars and slides. The level of contamination, if left unchecked, exposes children to unimaginable diseases.

Restrooms can also be a biohazard if they are not afforded the proper cleaning and care.

Hygiene and sanitation duties should be delegated to professional cleaners who have the expertise and are well equipped to give community parks a thorough cleaning.
