A clean restroom equals a clean image. Sounds so simple, right? We’ve all been there – you know, walked into a restroom and immediately left because it had a weird odour, wet and dirty floors and overflowing trash bins. What we don’t always think about is the lasting impression this experience had on our association with the business and their brand.
No matter what your line of business, maintaining a clean restroom helps put your customers and staff at ease and sets the tone for the rest of your operations.
Have a look at your restrooms and pay attention to the details. If you’re less than satisfied with their condition here are a few quick tips to help you step your cleanliness up a notch.
- Implement a daily cleaning schedule. Make sure that your cleaning team is regularly cleaning the most touched surfaces including washing the toilets, wiping down counters and mopping floors.
- Keep supplies well stocked. Don’t wait until someone complains that there is no paper-towel. Make sure part of your cleaning regimen includes re-stocking supplies daily.
- Choose the right cleaning products. Using one multi-purpose cleaning solution may not be giving you the clean you need. There are many products on the market designed to target specific areas of your restroom. A quick review of your cleaning products will help you determine if it’s time to make a change.
- Perform regular deep cleans. Deep cleaning programs focus on areas prone to germs and dirt that build up over time. Ensure your cleaning team is focusing on grout lines and floor drains, walls and doors, ceilings, fans and vents, light fixtures, and descaling to remove calcium deposits from fixtures.
The details do matter. Paying extra attention and putting energy into their cleanliness will pay dividends in customer and employee satisfaction.
