On average, commercial restrooms use up around 5% of a business’s space, and yet they hold around one-fifth of all dirt in the building. On top of that, around 80% of complaints about the building will come from poorly kept restrooms. You don’t want your business to get a bad reputation due to not having a restroom in top shape. However, because of how strong a first impression can be, you can potentially lose customers very quickly if the first thing they see is an unattractive restroom.
Because of this, you’ll need to keep your restrooms clean. There is a lot you’ll need to keep in mind if you want to be sure they remain clean, however. Here are some tips you’ll want to know about restroom cleaning.
Keep Yourself Protected
You’ll want to wear the proper protective gear when getting a bathroom cleaned. Gloves and goggles are some of the preferred pieces of equipment to wear. The gloves can be used at pretty much any point during the cleaning process, and goggles are useful when you use any sprays so that these sprays don’t get into your eyes.
Cleaning and Disinfecting
Restrooms have many high-contact spaces. These spaces include the door handles, sinks, soap dispensers, and toilets. Be sure that cleaners and disinfectants are applied generously to these high-contact areas. These cleaners and disinfectants will need to stay on those surfaces for a certain amount of time. Get in touch with a commercial cleaning company to figure out how long the wait time is for each cleaner or disinfectant you use.
You need to consider how cleaning and disinfecting are two separate processes. Cleaning gets rid of loose soils, which makes it easier to disinfect areas. Disinfecting can then be completed to kill whatever germs are on the surfaces of your restroom.
When you’re dusting surfaces, whether it’s for a restroom or any other area, you want to start from the top of the surface and work your way to the bottom. When surfaces above the ground have been dusted, you can then get a dust mop and sweep your floor. Before dusting the floor, you should clean up all pieces of debris first. Afterwards, the floor will be ready for your dust mop.
