Restroom Cleaning Equipment Streamlines Processes On Campus

Urine stains, grout lines and toilet scum: these are all terms custodial workers dread hearing when it comes time to tackle restroom cleaning. After all, who wants to get down on their hands and knees to clean under and behind toilets or scrub floors? But, the work needs to get done. Departments that ignore these areas or restroom cleaning run the risk of receiving complaints from building occupant about cleanliness.

 

At North Carolina State University, restroom complaints are few and far between, thanks to the implementation of automated restroom cleaning equipment that helps improve cleaning processes. Fortunately for cleaners, the use of this equipment also gets them off their hands and knees.

 

'We began using spray-and-vacuum, no-touch restroom cleaning equipment in our process roughly five years ago,' says Randy Reed, deputy assistant director for university housekeeping. 'Now, we have about 230 systems on hand ? one for every employee in the dorms, academic and athletic buildings, and seven to eight systems in our athletic department.'

Breaking Down Equipment

When Reed says this restroom cleaning equipment is "no-touch," he means it. The equipment allows cleaners to tackle even the most difficult to reach areas of the restroom without ever having to get out mops, brushes or other hand tools.
Instead, workers simply spray down the restroom using an indoor pressure washer ? one of the many features of this equipment. Using water pressure for restroom cleaning, along with automatic chemical metering and injection that guarantees properly diluted chemicals, workers are able reach into cracks and crevices with ease.  
"Combining either disinfectants or an all-purpose cleaner with the high-pressure nozzle, workers can easily clean toilets, urinals, grout, corners and crevices," says Reed. "Add to that the vacuum feature to remove the solution and you have a complete no-touch system. Staff no longer has to stick their hands into gross areas of the restroom."
