Janitorial Facility Cleaning: How to Enhance Restroom Cleanliness
There’s no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic has created a heightened case for top-notch restroom facility cleaning services. The high expectation and demand for safe public spaces will not lessen any time soon. A clean restroom will continue to be important for worker and customer satisfaction.

Amid constant adjustments to public health regulations, what is expected for restroom facility cleaning services to be considered top-quality? Let’s explore this here.

While we are still navigating the challenges of COVID-19 and what this means as employees and customers begin to share common spaces once again, we must also navigate how this affects facility cleanliness and cleaning services. One shared area that will continue to set high expectations is the restroom. While it is a given that restroom cleaning needs to be frequent and thorough, the task often includes many risks, is costly, and requires professionals to achieve a truly deep clean.


Why is it time to make your restroom cleanliness a priority?

Pandemic aside, it’s always been hard to keep these high-traffic areas spotless. Since cleaning crews work according to specific schedules, they can’t always keep up with where and when a thorough clean is needed urgently and unexpectedly.

Did you know…

Almost 80% of people have reported telling someone about a
displeasing experience they had at a restroom.

About 30% of us admit to using extra toilet paper on the seat, or to open
doors, because we feel they are unclean.

People are generally not trustworthy of shared restrooms! It’s safe to say that the pandemic has likely exaggerated these feelings even more. Developing trust by showing your customers or employees that you care about restroom hygiene is important now more than ever. How can you begin to meet these steep demands and what cleaning practices should you apply to meet the highest standards of safety?


Commit to Cleanliness and Provide Proof

The professional cleaning industry has been put in the spotlight and the limelight isn’t going to fade away during re-opening phases, nor in the post-covid world. Continued demand for facility cleaning services is obvious, but today’s customer or employee also wants proof that services were completed. This can be as simple as sharing with staff the commitments made towards more regular facility cleaning, such as switching from weekly to daily cleaning schedules. Visible changes are also proof that hygiene is being taken seriously. Take time to explain what has been added, changed, or removed – and why. Installation of touchless towel, sanitizer and soap dispensers in a restroom are all obvious changes that reduce the risk of germ transmission. Another way to commit to cleanliness is by always having items stocked. Everyone is a little less tolerant these days when the soap runs out, especially in a shared space.


Surface Cleaning isn’t Enough

One common industrial cleaning myth is that surface cleaning is good enough. Many large facilities and industrial cleaning companies have placed a heavy emphasis on manual wipe up without realizing that this method can leave a lot to be desired in terms of effectively meeting essential disinfection and decontamination.

 In addition to manually wiping commonly touched surface areas, spraying, rinsing and vacuuming also help with bacteria and debris removal.  It’s all about equipping your team with the right tools and knowledge to enhance restroom cleaning procedures.
