Your restroom is one of the most visited places in your office by both the employees and clients so it’s important that your restrooms are maintained and cleaned on a regular basis. As more people go in and out of the restroom, dirt and grime are accumulated and they keep growing exponentially. A clear indication of this is when your restroom starts to get damp and warm. If left in that situation without proper cleaning, it would be the perfect place for mold and bacteria to grow. It’s simply not the image you want to share with your employees and clients. Most small business owners seem to forget that keeping their restrooms clean should be done for both safety and marketing purposes as it has a direct effect on your employees and clients which can lead to damaging your profit.

Unclean restroom attracts disease-causing bacteria. Research has shown that there are more than 77,000 different types of bacteria present in restrooms. Even a tiny chance of contact with these bacteria could cause different health problems such as stomach aches, headaches, and breathing problems.
Dirty restrooms can also be a safety hazard. Accidental slip from spilled liquids is an example. Having employees that could not work due to illness or accidents would lower your business’ productivity and could potentially affect your profit.
As people visit your restroom, they take notice of what your facilities are and how they look. Their experience leaves an impression of your business. It may leave a good or bad image depending on how clean you keep your restrooms. Not only that, isn’t it embarrassing to have people visit an unclean restroom?
Failing to maintain and check your restroom could lead to high repair costs. An example of this is a clogged toilet. Not only will it require expensive plumbing repairs but also inconvenience to you but also to your employees and clients.
In keeping the restrooms clean you need to pay attention to these things:
The restroom is a communal space for your employees. One way of keeping it clean is by involving these people who regularly use it. Having an unclean restroom is not acceptable at home, as a regular user, your employees should also think that it is not tolerated at work too. You can encourage your employees in keeping the restroom clean through posting bathroom etiquette reminders and setting an example. This will motivate your employees to at least flush the toilet after use, wipe down water spills, wipe excess soap drips, request for a refill of toilet papers, and to report puddles, mess, or broken fixtures. These small actions could keep the restroom working and looking good.
Having your employees involved is not enough. Yes, they could be a big help but restrooms need more than just wiping small water spills. It needs scrubbing, dusting, and mopping which your office employees are not paid to do.
Restrooms need regular cleaning. But not just regular cleaning, you need to do the proper regular cleaning. You may need to implement routine maintenance procedures.
To ensure that you keep the restrooms properly cleaned you need to make a breakdown of your cleaning strategies. Here are some ways to keep your restrooms spotless:
Routine spot cleaning involves quick wiping of significant spots, wiping sinks, and ensuring that soap dispensers are not empty. This is for those businesses that have busy traffic in their restrooms and cannot have it closed for cleaning.
Daily cleaning is more meticulous compared to spot cleaning. This is done when there are only a few who visit the restroom. If there is heavy traffic in your restroom but is in need of cleaning, closing some of the toilets will be needed.
Daily restroom cleaning involves:
Deep restroom cleaning is more thorough than daily cleaning. It is not done daily and has a set schedule depending on how many people visit your restroom daily. It could be weekly, every other week, or monthly. Like deep cleaning, it is done when there are only a few people who visit the restroom for it to be done right.
Deep restroom cleaning involves:
The cleanliness of your restroom could say a lot about your business. Having your restroom in constant clean and usable condition could be an asset.
Aside from having the proper equipment and products you can have your employees do their part in maintaining your restroom. If everyone contributes, everyone could enjoy a clean and safe communal space. But of course, they could not do a lot of restroom cleaning, after all, they are paid to do office work and not for their cleaning service. This is where commercial cleaning services come in.
