Disinfectants are key restroom accessory

September 19, 2010

It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s got to do it.

That’s how most restroom technicians approach that task of cleaning and maintaining restrooms in the facility’s they service.

So why not do it the right way?

The right way isn’t just picking up trash, replenishing towel dispensers and mopping the floor with an all-purpose cleaner.

The right way includes enlisting one of the most important restroom accessories that should be in your cleaning arsenal: Disinfectants.

Disinfectants are very important in restroom cleaning in the never-ending battle to keep patrons safe from bacteria and germs.

Cleaning without a disinfectant removes surface dirt and some germs, but many germs — some potentially dangerous to the public’s health — remain.

Having restroom technicians use a disinfectant according to manufacturer’s directions while allowing for proper dwell time gets rid of the majority of germs that are present in a restroom.

There are many combination cleaner/disinfectants that remove dirt and soil along with germs in one step, giving you the best of both worlds — a clean restroom and a safe restroom.
