Tips

8 Steps to a Cleaner Restroom

Restrooms are the source of more complaints than any other area in a facility. A dirty restroom not only creates a negative image of your business, it can also pose a serious health risk to employees and visitors. Follow these steps to ensure your restrooms - and your reputation - remain clean.

Step 1: Stock Your Cleaning Cart

Click to browse our wide assortment of products for every step of the restroom cleaning process.

2: Prepare for cleaning
  • Set out signs to prevent entry
  • Put on gloves, respirators, and splash goggles to protect yourself from bacteria and/or chemical contact
Step 3: Disinfect toilets and urinals

Toilets and urinals are a key source of foul odors and harmful bacteria, and so they require thorough cleaning and disinfection that follow a specific protocol. As disinfectants have different dwell times - that is, how long a disinfectant must remain in contact with a surface in order to effectively kill harmful bacteria - toilets should be treated with disinfectant and rinsed after the other areas of the restroom are clean. To properly disinfect a toilet or urinal, follow these steps:

  • Plunge toilet water into drain with a toilet mop to remove water from toilet bowl
  • Apply a generous amount of toilet bowl cleaner inside toilet rim and apply 1-2 ounces directly to bowl mop
  • Swab inside of toilet bowl thoroughly and allow to dwell for 10 minutes, or according to dwell time indicated on chemical label for proper disinfection
  • Apply disinfectant to a red microfiber cloth and clean toilet seats, handles, and exterior
  • Repeat above procedures for each toilet and urinal, as well as toilet stall doors and partitions
Step 4: Sweep floors and dispose of debris

Step 5: Empty trash and refill dispensers

Keeping restrooms stocked and trash levels low prevents the spread of bacteria and creates a positive image for restroom visitors.

  • Empty waste containers and replace liners
  • Refill paper towel dispensers
  • Refill hand soap dispensers
  • Check metered air fresheners dispensers; replace cartridges and batteries if needed
  • Refill toilet paper and toilet seat cover dispensers
  • Empty feminine care receptacles and replace liners
  • Refill feminine care product dispensers
Step 6: Clean glass and surfaces

Restroom surfaces - particularly high-touch areas like countertops, stall doors, and dispenser handles - are breeding grounds for germs. Thorough disinfecting of all surfaces prevents contamination and improves the overall aesthetics of your restrooms.

  • Scrub and disinfect sinks and countertops; use a yellow microfiber cloth or disposable wiper to prevent cross-contamination
  • Apply disinfectant to handles on manual paper towel and soap dispensers
  • Remove rust, lime, and calcium stains with mineral removers
  • Clean tile and grout thoroughly with a chemical cleaner and brush
  • Clean mirrors with glass cleaner and blue microfiber cloth or low-lint disposable wiper
Step 7: Mop floors with industrial floor cleaners

Step 8: Flush and rinse toilets and urinals
  • Flush and thoroughly rinse inside of toilets and urinals once dwell time is complete
  • Replace urinal screens and toilet deodorizers to combat odors
