How to Clean and Sanitize a Playground

Cleaning a playground with soap and water isn’t enough. You need a more thorough cleaning method as well as disinfection protocols to keep playgrounds safe and enjoyable for children and their families. Here’s how to properly clean and sanitize a playground.

Prepare the Area

A playground must be fully vacated to allow for a thorough cleaning. Sweep away all loose dirt, dust, and debris from the area. Cover plants and other fixtures that could be damaged during the cleaning process.

Apply a Cleaning Solution

Use a soap dispenser with a wand attachment to spray antibacterial cleaner onto the different surfaces. Allow the solution to sit for a few minutes.

Scrub Down Surfaces

Use a soft-bristled brush to scrub the surfaces and loosen up all the buildup. A rotating scrub brush attachment can also be used for faster and more efficient results.

Pressure Washing

Use a pressure washer to remove all the dirt, dust, grime, gum, stains, and contaminants from the playground. There are three different techniques for cleaning a playground.

  • Soft Washing: Use a soft wash system for smaller and more delicate surfaces. Keep water pressure at 500 PSI or less. 
  • Pressure Washing: Most surfaces are suitable for pressure washing. Use a pressure washer with 1,000 to 3,000 PSI. Adjust nozzle and water pressure accordingly
  • Power Washing: For parts of the playground with a large surface area, such as sidewalks or paths, power washing is a great cleaning method. Use a power washer with 1,500 to 3,000 PSI. Keep the water temperature at 165°F or higher to kill germs and bacteria. Hot water can also clean surfaces much faster than regular pressure washing.

Apply Protective Coating

Apply a sealant or protective coating to make playground surfaces more resistant to germs, bacteria, dirt, dust, grime, and other contaminants.
