Because it’s spring time, and depending on where you are, employees may still be at home, now is a great time for some cleaning. There are many things you can do to clean your office. We have covered some of them in recent blogs. Something that shouldn’t be neglected is your restrooms. You may want to look into commercial janitorial services in Orange County during this time to help you out, but here are some tips for cleaning your restroom: spring cleaning style.
Clean And Disinfect
It is good practice when cleaning your restroom to clean visible dirt before disinfecting. Clean all surfaces and touchpoints, as you normally would in regular cleaning. That means restroom stalls, as well as walls, sink handles, flushing knobs and handles, and even soap and paper towel dispensers or hand dryers. Do a thorough job of cleaning, making sure to get off any dirt, grime, and buildup that may be coating your surfaces. Once you have cleaned the surfaces in your restrooms to your liking, you can disinfect. Make sure to use a proper disinfectant, and to follow instructions for use of your cleaning product, to ensure that it does its job.
Clean The Toilets And Urinals
A big and necessary part of cleaning your restroom is cleaning the toilets and urinals. When cleaning the toilets, you may choose to pre-clean them. Remove any debris from the toilet or urinal, and disinfect any urinal strainers. Clean all soil from the toilet’s exterior and bowl, then pretreat the toilet exterior. Once you are done with that finishing cleaning it. Now is the time to do a toilet bowl treatment. Flush the toilet, then apply toilet bowl cleaner. If it’s been a while since you’ve done this, you may want to let it sit longer. After it sits for its designated time, or the time you feel is most appropriate for your toilets’ level of need, you can flush it again. Take this time to finish up with any spot cleaning in order to ensure your toilets are looking their best.
Clean And Mop The Floor
Depending on how regularly you clean your restrooms, and if you utilize a commercial janitorial service in Orange County, your floor’s cleanliness may vary. Now is a great time to get them looking good. If your restroom floor is tile, that may mean cleaning the grout with a special product. Take this time to do a thorough cleaning of your floor. You may start with vacuuming or sweeping, then get into the nitty gritty. Once you are done with that, mop your floor. Do a good job of this. And try from the furthest side of your restroom to the door. That way you can minimize walking on wet floor, which will help it look better, and reduce slipping hazard.
Leave Your Restroom Looking Ready
Before you finish cleaning your restroom, make sure you restock everything, including toilet paper, seat covers, paper towels, and soap. Also make sure to empty the trash and put in a new trash bag. Leave your restroom ready to use by the next person who comes in. If it’s been a while since your restroom had a deep clean, the next user may not recognize it.
