In an office or workplace, restrooms can be left messy and dirty by the end of the day. From trash or toilet paper on the floor to water accumulation on counters, plus germs on almost every surface, a workplace bathroom can need a lot of cleaning on a daily basis. Are you fully aware of what lingers in workplace bathrooms and how to keep your bathrooms both clean and disinfected? Let’s take a look.

What Lingers in Workplace Bathrooms

Cleaning your workplace bathrooms can help your business look professional and prevent the spread of germs and illnesses. Cleaning during the day for maintenance purposes includes tasks like picking up, wiping up, and refilling supplies as necessary.

  1. Trash Trash and debris can certainly linger in bathroom stalls, around sinks, and trash cans. Picking up can instantly help your restroom look better and prevent slips.
  2. Disinfecting Germs are another offender that can linger in a bathroom. Wiping and disinfecting places that are touched repeatedly throughout the day can discourage the spread of illness and disease. For example, door handles, soap dispensers, faucets, toilets, and paper towel dispenser levers.
  3. Water and Moisture Cleaning up water and moisture around sinks and on floors not only helps prevent slips and falls, but keeps away mold and musty smells, too. Keeping bathrooms as dry as possible is important to avoid these conditions. Running the restroom fans can be a great help if you run a gym or other fitness facility with a pool.
  4. OdorsOdors can certainly linger in restrooms. Following the steps above can help prevent nasty smells from hanging around. A disinfecting air spray can eliminate any persistent bathroom smells and prevent odors from lingering.
  5. Restocking – Having soap and paper towels fully stocked up will help prevent the spread of illness as well as keep water drips off the floor and counters.

Bathroom Germs and Bacteria

Germs and bacteria like streptococcus, staphylococcus, and E. coli are some of the top contaminants that can linger in a bathroom. Disinfectants used properly will significantly aid in eliminating these types of harmful germs, and provide a safe and hygienic restroom. These bacteria are usually seen on floor areas, handles, and other high-touch places. Following the steps above will go a long way to removing these germs.
