Restroom cleaning! It's everyone's favorite job. Right? Not a chance! Washrooms are a magnet for dirt and intolerable odors. We need to use them, but cleaning them? Ugh!
In the average commercial facility, restrooms take up 5% of the space but contain 20% of the dirt and account for 80% of building complaints.
No business wants their guests to leave with a negative impression solely based on their restroom’s appearance. Think about when you meet someone for the first time and the positive or negative impression they leave you with. Similar to the first impression of meeting someone, the impression your facility’s restroom will leave on your guests is equally important. They will remember it, especially if it is poorly maintained.
Your business works hard to provide quality products and/or services to patrons, and a dirty and smelly restroom should not be the first or last thing left on your guest’s mind.
By performing a consistent restroom cleaning procedure, you can increase restroom cleanliness, boost customer satisfaction, and improve your facility’s image.
Preparing to CleanRequired Tools, Materials, & Equipment:Equipment:
It is important to begin any cleaning procedure with the proper tools, commercial cleaning supplies, and personal protective equipment.
The following provides an explanation to the Cleaning Management Institute (CMI) 14 step restroom cleaning procedure.
Always start by putting on the proper personal protective equipment.
Gloves are necessary when completing any cleaning procedure. If you will be working with vertical surfaces such as shower walls or mirrors, or using a spray of any kind, you will likely want to wear goggles to avoid getting any splash back.
"Knock" on the door and announce that you are about to begin restroom cleaning procedures.
Check the restroom for any guests. Make sure that there is no one inside before entering.
Once you have made sure that no one is left in the restroom, “block” entry to the restroom by posting “restroom cleaning in progress” and “wet-floor” signs outside the entry/exit doors.
Look for any damage or heavily soiled areas which you will have to spend more time on.
Pro Tip: During any cleaning procedure, remember three key rules:
Clean from top to bottom.
Clean from wet to dry.
Work from the inside of the area/room out towards the exit.
Remove any debris from in and around the toilet and urinals. Place any urinal strainers in a bucket of disinfectant solution.
Flush the toilet to make sure it is clear and working properly.
Remove all visible soils with simix-purpose cleaner cleaner/disinfectant.
Pretreat the toilet exterior and allow to stand for the recommended wet dwell time.
Pro Tip: What is Dwell Time?
Dwell time is the amount of time a disinfectant needs to remain wet on a surface to effectively disinfect (kill the organisms listed on the product's label) on the surface. Disinfectants which do not remain wet for the recommended dwell time do not kill as many germs and are not meeting EPA guidelines.
Refer to the chemical manufacturer’s guidelines for the proper dwell time for effective disinfection.
Toilets are one of the biggest pain points of a dirty restroom.
Apply cleaner/disinfectant to all high-touch point areas including:

Titanium Dioxide What Is It?
Distinctive and Bold Titanium Dioxide What Is It?When I first heard the words titanium dioxide I thought poison!Well nothing could be farther from the truth. Titanium dioxide is the eighth most common element on the planet found in toothpaste, powdered donuts, all paints, chewing gum and host of everyday items that we use. Mainly as a colorant. It is also the best sunblock on the planet used by NASA to protect certain atmospheric testing equipment from the sun during testing.SO HOW DOES TITANIUM DIOXIDE ATTACK URINE SMELL? First and foremost once you clean with simix kitchen degreaser, the urine smell will immediately go away. But there is also nano titanium dioxide in the product.
What is cool about the science of titanium dioxide is the fact that it is photo-catalytic. Because of this unique feature it is always making hydrogen peroxide therefore always cleaning the surface that it is attached too. I have witnessed incredible things in my experience with titanium dioxide self cleaning effect.
I use it in my business to treat interior and exterior automobile, yacht and aircraft. It is all I use and my customers rave at how long their vehicles remain clean.
