The appearance of your facility’s restrooms can make or break the reputation of your business. Have you ever used a public restroom before that was so filthy, that you negatively judged the establishment due to its lack of cleanliness? Always maintain clean bathrooms in your office or work facility. Not only does a properly cleaned bathroom look and smell nice, it can also prevent sickness and germs from being spread throughout the office. Follow Apple Corps’ professional commercial cleaning tips for properly cleaned office restrooms:
1.)Vacuum floors: Because most restroom floors are composed of VCT (vinyl composite tile), or a similar hard surface, there is a misconception that the floor surface should only be mopped or waxed. Be sure to vacuum floors on a regular basis throughout the week to avoid dirt and dust buildup.
2.)Use hot water: Hot water kills germs, microorganisms and bacteria. Cleaning solutions are more active in hot temperature water; therefore, providing a stronger energy for extracting dirt and bacteria from surfaces. Using hot water while spot cleaning, carpet cleaning or rinsing has a higher capability of soil removal versus using cold water. Try using hot water while cleaning your restroom surfaces in the office.
3.)Clean behind toilets: Behind your toilet, you will find dirt, stains, splatters and germs you wish didn’t exist. If you can’t reach the back of the toilet, use a tool that can extend to aim for that area. Not only should you be disinfecting and wiping the back of the toilet, but you should be cleaning and scrubbing the floor’s surface. Also, make sure to wash the wall surfaces behind the toilet.
4.)Microfiber cloths: Microfiber cloths work amazing for cleaning mirrors and stainless steel surfaces. Spray down your vanity mirror with a cleaning solution, and then wipe down with a damp microfiber cloth. Let mirror sit for three to four minutes. Ring out the cloth. Proceed with wiping excess water from the mirror. Using a dry cloth, buff out the mirror to dry and shine. These cloths are also great for cleaning sinks, counters, toilets and more. Benefits of using microfiber cloths? Surfaces dry faster, no streaks, and washes easily. Another great benefit to using microfiber clothes is you can save your company money by not having to purchase paper towels for cleaning. Also, these cloths can be used up to 300 times before having to replace! Try cleaning your restroom on a weekly basis with microfiber cloths.
5.)Disinfect & sanitize: It is important to disinfect your restrooms on a consistent basis to avoid germs from building up and spreading throughout your office. Keeping a restroom clean should be a top priority in your cleaning agenda. Not only for sanitary purposes, but because having a dirty restroom can reflect poorly on the image of your business (especially for those whom offer public restroom access). Make sure your cleaning company is washing the following surfaces: Sinks, counters, mirrors, faucets, paper towel dispensers, soap dispensers, door handles, light switches, walls, toilet seats, toilet bowls, floors, and ceilings. Provide soap and paper towels for patrons of the restroom.
