Interior Aircraft Cleaning
Maintaining the cleanliness of the interior of an aircraft is crucial for ensuring the safety and comfort of passengers and crew members. Interior aircraft cleaning is a complex task that requires specialized equipment and products to effectively remove dirt, grime, and germs from various surfaces. The use of high-quality cleaning products is essential to ensure that the aircraft is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, reducing the risk of cross-contamination and the spread of diseases.
Interior Aircraft Cleaning Process
Here we look at a guide to the process of carrying out an effective clean.
Start from the back – Begin the clean at the top and work forward through the aircraft. Remove rubbish or left items from all passenger areas and the cabin areas.
Overhead storage, air controls and handles – Clean and disinfect all overhead storage for passengers and crew. Be sure to clean switches, handles and air controls, as these touch points are areas where germs and viruses will accumulate. A vacuum may be helpful for hard-to-reach areas.
Windows – Soft micro fibre towels and detergents are best suited for aviation window cleaning. A gentle clean with non-abrasive approved products is essential to ensure marks and scratches do not occur.
Seats, seatbelts and seat backs – Seats, seatbelts and seatback pockets are all high-touch areas. These should be deep cleaned, ensuring all tricky parts are reached. Sanitise catches and clips and all high-contact locations. A fogging machine is often used to cover and sanitise aircraft interiors.
Tray tables and monitors – Tray tables require cleaning, both top and underneath. These areas are touched throughout flights. Disinfectant will kill and prevent germs, leaving the tray table thoroughly clean. The same applies to monitors, with passengers touching them frequently. These should be carefully cleaned using the correct wipes, cloths and solution.
Toilets – Washrooms must be cleaned thoroughly with approved solutions to eliminate bacteria germs and viruses. The toilet bowl, floor, walls, sink, surfaces, mirrors, dispensers, handles and door should all be cleaned and sanitised.
Food and drinks cart and preparation area – Food trolleys and food storage areas, and preparation areas must be cleaned and sanitised thoroughly with the relevant products. This includes all food trays and particularly waste disposal compartments.
Floor – The floor should be cleaned last, with a thorough vacuum followed by fogging or wiping with an approved disinfectant.
A professional and systematic approach is integral for interior aircraft appearance and cleaning to meet hygiene standards.
