Well-maintained restrooms are essential to preserving an organization’s reputation; dirty restrooms can tarnish a facility’s image in the eyes of building occupants and visitors.

Many new problem-solving products have been developed in recent years, so much so that a multitude of products often tumble out from the custodian closet.

Simplification is the key to establishing a consistent and effective restroom program.

Two recent market developments have streamlined restroom duty while promising to increase cleanliness — multi-surface cleaners and microfiber floor cleaning tools.

Cleaning with safer, green, multi-surface cleaners, custodians can thoroughly clean, disinfect and deodorize the main areas of a restroom with a single system. Designed with optimized formulas and packaging, the system offers flexibility to tackle multiple surfaces and soils, while still providing needed dilution control to contain costs.

Not only does one buy, store and use a single system on surfaces, mirrors, floors, and the air, but this total solution supports cleaning in an environmentally safe manner.

Eradicate senseless methods
Cleaning professionals who inefficiently tote buckets of dirty water from room to room risk the following:

  • The cleaning operation’s reputation
  • Cross-contamination
  • Potentially unsafe, wet floors

Microfibers have a positive charge that attracts dust and dirt without redistributing around the room; absorbent fibers allow the mop to hold sufficient water for cleaning, without dripping. The floor dries quickly, reducing possible slip and fall injuries.

The right chemicals combined with the right cleaning tools and procedures will reduce cross-contamination, while simplifying the process without additional time or effort.
