Hygiene ball pool
The balls from the ball pool are regularly cleaned with a special ball washing machine. This happens every eight weeks. In case a child has ‘an accident’ in the ball pool, we clean the balls that same evening. All balls get disinfected and also the ball pool gets a thorough cleaning that same evening. We have a certificate of hygiene displayed in our establishment so you can see for yourself when the ball pools had their last cleaning.
