Have you ever walked into a restroom and noticed any or all of the following things? Sticky floors. Toilets with stain rings inside the bowl. Toilets with rust stains around the base. Nasty odors. Dirty mirrors. Dirty partitions. Pieces of toilet paper on the floor. I have been in restrooms like this and I don’t like it. Neither do your employees.
In our experience, the biggest cleaning complaint among employees is working in a building with dirty restrooms.
Here are a few tips you can follow to make sure your employees are not complaining about your restrooms:
- Clean the restroom regularly. The more employees you have, the more often you need to clean your restrooms. Cleaning high traffic restrooms once or twice a week doesn’t cut it.
- Detail clean the inside and outside of the toilets and urinals. Don’t forget to detail the base and backsides and the surrounding floors and walls. Neglecting these details will result in smelly restrooms!
- Use microfiber cleaning tools. They clean better. They remove dust and debris from the restroom rather than merely moving it around.
- Never run out of toilet paper or paper towels. There is nothing worse than reaching for toilet paper and finding an empty dispenser.
- Install air care dispensers if you have consistent problems with bad odors.
