There are many overlooked mistakes made in commercial restroom cleaning. But many of them are easy to fix. Do your cleaning crews use sponges and scrubs to clean toilets? If so, they could be moving contaminated soils from one room to another. They may also be using conventional cleaning chemicals that have been shown to be ineffective at removing germs. Here is the best system for toilet cleaning.
Find a Hands-Free Solution
The best way to clean a toilet is to remove the bacteria on the spot. Doing this requires a hands-free system that cleans without using sponges and rags that get reused on other toilets. Kaivac's No-Touch Cleaning system provides a more sanitary cleaning system, without going over the administration's cleaning budget.
Spray Toilets with Cleaning Solution
Using an automated chemical injector, a cleaning technician will spray the toilet seat, the inside of the bowl, the flush handle, and other parts of the toilet using the spray gun from the no-touch system. There's no need to measure the solution because it's done automatically in the Kaivac injector. This chemical system is superior to bleach and other abrasive chemicals. Toilet cleaning chemicals need to be proven effective, not simply harsh—bleach can harbor germs and bacteria for more than 60 minutes.
Once toilets and the area around them have been fully sprayed with cleansing solution, custodial staff will pressure-rinse the area with fresh water in high-pressure spray mode. Beginning with the top of the toilet and moving downward, technicians rinse all the cleaner and contaminants to the groud where they are vacuumed up. Pressure washing also takes place inside the bowl to scour off any contaminants.
Using the same machine that cleaned and rinsed the toilet, cleaning technicians next switch the nozzle to drying mode. If your team has to clean and reopen the bathroom quickly, this drying feature will come in handy and help prevent slipping when people re-enter the restroom. Using the Kaivac system, proper toilet cleaning is achieved in less than two minutes.
Everything from toilet sneeze—the germ-filled mist that comes from a toilet flushing—to fecal-oral contamination endangers people entering restrooms that haven't been properly cleaned. The Kaivac system allows your crew to perform toilet cleaning on a much more effective level. Though everything from proper sink cleaning to floor cleaning must be part of the process, true restroom sanitation has to involve clean toilets.
