The Importance of Quality Restroom Cleaning
Clean restrooms should be a focus of your business, office, or school
One of the major goals of any commercial cleaning company is to maintain impeccably clean restrooms for their employees and clients. Restroom cleaning can be challenging because the expectation is that when you use a public restroom it will be clean. The reality is that restroom facilities see a great deal of activity and can become dirty very quickly. Restroom sanitation must be a priority, with frequency of use and many touch points and hot spots for transferring germs and increased exposure to bio-hazardous waste, restrooms pose a most daunting challenge. Restrooms must not only look clean, they must be clean. Restrooms harbor germs and bacteria that can make people sick and sick employees cost companies resources and can translate directly to the bottom line.
So how can an office manager know that restrooms are really clean and what are the signs that there is trouble brewing in your restrooms? If soil, smudges or dirt is visible on or around door handles, your restroom could be a perfect breeding ground for disease causing germs. If you can detect a smell or distinct bathroom odor, your restroom isn’t really clean. Other areas to watch for include sinks, mirrors and floors. If dirt is visible on the floors and if soap and paper towels are not properly stocked you know it is time to look for a new cleaning service.
There has been a shift in the science of cleaning with the abandonment of the old mop and bucket-based cleaning. With a growing awareness of the high standards of hygiene and the concern about preventing cross contamination especially in restrooms, professional cleaning companies have become very serious about eradicating toxins and pathogens that might be lurking in your office restrooms.
How does it feel when you walk into a spotless and clean restroom? Makes you think highly of the company doesn’t it?
Science based restroom cleaning using microfiber floor cleaning and color coded rag systems can prevent cross contamination and are much more effective than the old way of cleaning. Science based cleaning also extends to the procedures and products that are used to clean as well as on-going training of cleaning company workers. Industry best practices like cleaning first, then disinfecting properly reduces disease causing bacteria and germs.
So what can you expect to see if your office or facility restroom are being properly cleaned? You should see:
- Clean, shiny and streak-free mirrors
- Areas behind toilets and other hard-to-reach areas are properly cleaned to destroy odors
- Hot spots and high contact touch points should be cleaned methodically
- Toilets and urinals should be cleaned, dried and disinfected
- Dryers, paper dispensers and other restroom fixtures should be inspected for functionality
- Supplies like toilet paper, hand towels should be restocked as needed
- Stalls and partitions should be free of grime, fingerprints, gum and graffiti
- Your office restroom should always smell fresh and clean
