How To Clean Your Indoor Playground Equipment

June 23, 2021

Once you have your indoor playground up and running, it’s time to keep it clean, sanitized, and disinfected. With regular daily use, there’s no avoiding it—indoor playgrounds get dirty. Not only dirt but germs abound as well. To keep caretakers and kids happy, use our tips on how to clean your indoor playground equipment.

Clean It Up

The first step in keeping your indoor playground clean is to clean as you go and at the end of each day. When a spill happens, or someone accidentally tracks mud into the playground, politely wipe up the messes when possible.

After closing time, you will need to wipe down everything with a bucket of warm soapy water, a soft cloth, and a scrub brush for tougher spots. Focus on the areas that kids grab onto and, of course, where their feet land. It’s a lot of surface area, but when done daily, the dirt can’t build up.

Keep some WD40 on hand for scuff marks and Goo Gone for mysterious sticky spots.


After you clean your indoor playground equipment, you must sanitize it to reduce germs. Several of the sanitizing sprays available on the market work well on the plastic areas of your indoor playground. You can also make your own sanitizer by using the proper ratio of bleach and water. Wipe down everything with a soft cloth at least once a week.


Your clean and sanitized indoor playground equipment is well appreciated by mothers all around. Now, make them seriously happy with a thorough and professional disinfecting job. No one wants to visit an indoor playground known for creating cranky, sick children. The extra steps to disinfect are not an option but essential.

Disinfecting uses the appropriate chemicals to kill not only germs but some viruses and bacteria. Have your entire indoor playground completely disinfected, following the recommendation of a local disinfecting company.
