Bathroom Sanitation Checklist
Sanitizing a bathroom is hard work but, with routine cleanings, the task will become easier and less burdensome each time. One may find it easier to start at one side of a restroom and work his or her way to the other side; others may like to clean one set of items at a time. Either way, the following is a summary checklist of items that should be sanitized during each bathroom cleaning:
Counter top and sink areas
Remove all items from the counter top or sink area before cleaning with a sanitizer. In addition to the counter top surface, make a point to wipe down faucets and soap dispensers.
Equipment and devices
In addition to faucets and soap dispensers, hand sanitizer dispensers and paper towel dispensers or air dryers should be wiped clean. Inspect and clean any trash cans as well as any feminine hygiene-dispensing machines and disposals; remove trash and disposed-of products. Clean any other items on the floors and walls, too.
Mirrors and doors/handles
Clean mirrors and take extra time to wipe down doors and door handles. Doors are one of the dirtiest areas in a restroom. If possible, place the restroom’s trashcan near the door. Many people use the paper towel with which they dry their hands to open the door to avoid making skin contact with its handle. This way they will be able to dispose of the paper towel easily after opening the door.
Toilets, urinals and stalls
Of course, toilets, urinals and stalls should be cleaned. The bowls of toilets and urinals should be sanitized and their exteriors also should be disinfected well. Stalls, too, need to be disinfected.
Floors and walls
Save these areas for last so as to sweep up any dirt or dust that may have accumulated on the floors and lower walls and baseboards during the cleaning of the other areas. Sweep well and be sure not to miss tricky corners and the area around the toilet; these are areas where germs, urine and soils collect heavily. Follow the task with thorough mopping using a solution that contains a bacteria-killing agent; repeat the process if necessary. Remember that traditional mopping that uses a string micro-fiber or flat mop can leave behind a great deal of residue. WellBeing offers touch-free Kaivac cleaning services for restrooms that is proven more effective at removing bacterial contamination than mops.
