Disclaimer: In the other parts of the world, commercial areas such as playgrounds are starting with re-open but with stricter policies upon entry and as a social protocol for safety, they limit the number of children inside the playgrounds. Temperatures are checked upon entry, the parents or guardians are interviewed if they have experienced symptoms of fever, cough and among other symptoms. This is the new normal for commercial playground facilities that have seen closure for months.
If an area is cleared by the government for a commercial re-opening, by all means this is a quick guide on what commercial playground operators should task themselves in regards to cleaning, sanitation and disinfecting procedures to keep the playground free from infectious diseases from the surfaces of their play equipment.
Cleaning the Floors, Surfaces and Walls
A stricter cleaning procedure is highly recommended for the commercial playground facility. At the end of day of the operations, facility management must clean the floors, mop it with strong disinfectants. The same scrubbing must also be done on the surface, the padding and walls of the playground in order to maintain a thorough cleaning procedure. Remember to disinfect the cleaning equipment as they too, will accumulate bacteria over time. Commercial facilities must stock up on more potent disinfectant solutions, cleaning supplies and safety equipment for its maintenance staff.
Sanitation all Around
A thorough cleaning must also be applied to the other parts of the commercial facility: the comfort rooms, the reception area, the waiting chairs, the tables, the management office and the locker room of staff. In the new normal, every nook and cranny must be kept clean in order to maintain our compliance with the stricter sanitation standards set by the government. Sanitation of areas such as the comfort room is a must and there are specialized formulation from cleaning products for high traffic and high touch surfaces such as these areas.
Disinfection of Ventilation
Air quality is also subject for the stricter guidelines on cleanliness and sanitation. A thorough cleaning must also be applied to the ventilation and air-conditioning equipment of the facility. These equipment are components of the air quality and without a strict maintenance, it could be prone for carrying airborne contaminants such as airborne diseases.

Aside from maintaining a fresh batch of trusted cleaning supply and materials, additional equipments for public and business safety are needed for compliance:
- Face masks and face shields
- Alcohol and hand sanitizers
