Hygienic Restroom Maintenance
  Restrooms are a place where contagious diseases could potentially spread by touching things such as faucets, sinks, paper towels, doors and soap dispensers. From lobby and waiting areas, to corridors and offices, there are numerous opportunities for employees and visitors to pick up or pass along germs.
In this day and age of virulent flu strains, SARS and the threat of other infectious disease outbreaks, it should be no surprise that people are concerned about cleanliness and hygiene.
In fact, people go to such great lengths of performing contortionists in public restrooms – flushing toilets with their feet, pushing doors open with their shoulders, dispensing towels with their elbows and doing anything to avoid germ laden surfaces.
Clean restrooms reflect positively on employees, customers and visitors. To reach this goal, use of right chemicals in the right way helps in
Easily removing soil from counters, floors, walls and fixtures
Eliminating bacteria, germs and viruses
Making the restroom appear and smell clean
Ensuring safety to both the user and building occupants
Having minimal environmental impact
A clean and hygienic restroom can be maintained by following a two-level cleaning schedule with a combination of regular daily cleaning and weekly deep cleaning.
Regular Daily Cleaning
Trash removal, surface cleaning, disinfection and restocking supplies need to be done daily for most commercial or office restrooms. Facilities in airports, restaurants and other high traffic sites may need more frequent touch-up cleaning and restocking of soap and paper supplies.
Routine cleaning involves the following tasks:
Removing trash & replacing can liners
Refilling dispensers
Dusting high surfaces
Cleaning toilets & urinals with a non-acid bowl cleaner
Cleaning showers with a non-acid soap remover
Cleaning mirrors and other glass surfaces
Cleaning walls, ceiling, partitions, doors and light switches
Disinfecting all surfaces and fixtures
Vacuuming floor and wet mopping with a cleaner/disinfectant
Some products combine cleaning and disinfecting ingredients into one container. These combined products work well only on surfaces that are already relatively clean. For dirty surfaces, it is important to clean first and then apply a separate disinfectant. To work well, this disinfectant must remain in place for at least 10 minutes.  
Fairly mild products are available for daily restroom cleaning. Such products are reasonably safe to use and have little environmental impact. Check the supplier’s directions and mix the cleaning product with as much water as you can. A diluted product is usually safer to use than a concentrate.
