Clean Better with a Restroom Pressure Washer

by | Apr 17, 2023

Restroom pressure washers make quick work out of the most difficult, most unpleasant, costliest task in the Jan/San industry. Restroom cleaning is hard. The standard method of scrubbing, wiping, and mopping takes a lot of time. The required bending, twisting, and kneeling to reach every surface takes a lot of physical effort. Yet all too often that investment in time and effort does not pay off.

Want proof? Take a look at Cleaning & Maintenance Management’s Building Service Contractor Benchmarking Survey. It found, once again, that the single greatest challenge to customer satisfaction is facility restrooms.

If your hearing too many complaints about the state of your restroom—and really even one is too many—it’s time change your methods. Here’s how a restroom pressure washer offers a better choice.

Apply Chemical with Indoor Pressure Washer

Indoor pressure washer cleaning machines take the guesswork out of mixing and applying chemicals. The old glug-glug method, where workers manually mix concentrated chemicals by feel, is too risky. Using too much can produce dangerous fumes, irritate skin, or harm building materials. Use too little and the chemical might not perform as promised, wasting more time and resource.

Applying cleaning solution with an indoor pressure washer guarantees precision. The machine’s integrated system dilutes automatically, removing any guesswork. Workers use the low pressure setting to gently deliver the precise amount of cleaning chemical to toilets, urinals, sinks, stall partitions, and floors. 

This method is fast and easy. It may also save up to 90% in chemical costs.

Restroom Cleaning Machines Blast Soils

Now comes the fun part. After allowing the chemical to dwell for the appropriate time, workers switch their restroom cleaning machine to high-power mode and start rinsing. Restroom pressure washers feature a powerful 500 PSI pump that can literally blast soils out of corners, crevices, and grout lines.

Workers then blast the slurry down a floor drain or suck it up with the machine’s powerful wet vacuum to dispose of later. This method completely removes dirt and pathogens from the space. The vacuum is so powerful that it leaves floors dry and ready to walk on right after cleaning.

This allows restroom cleaning machines to save time and effort while completely removing dangerous soils and impurities. Mops and rags that just spread dirt around can’t deliver the same level of clean.

Restroom Cleaning Systems Protect Worker Health

Using a restroom cleaning system’s combination of pressure washer and wet/dry vacuum brings a lot to the cleaning experience. Now employees will not have to bend, twist, or kneel to service restrooms. They no longer have to guess how much chemical to use. They also don’t have to wield a wet, heavy mop which is a common cause of repetitive motion injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, or back pain.

Restroom pressure washers protect workers by:

  • Reducing the chance of musculoskeletal injuries
  • Leaving floors dry, cutting the chance for a slip and fall injury
  • Using battery power, eliminating the risk of tripping over a cord
  • Dispensing properly diluted chemical, reducing the risk of dangerous fumes and splashes

Indoor pressure washers also add much needed dignity to the cleaning experience. Janitors and custodiams face exposure to dirty and disgusting restrooms messes every day. Cleaning with a mop and rags only makes it worse. Not only does the method demand workers bend, twist, and kneel, it also forces them to get close to and touch soiled surfaces.

Restroom cleaning systems flip that demotivating scenario on its head. Workers stand upright and away from the mess during the entire process. And the machine’s powerful pump and vacuum mean they never have to touch a dirty surface.
