Restroom Sinks: The Best Cleaning Methods

Restrooms that are improperly cleaned can be breeding grounds for bacteria like E. coli and viruses such as influenza and the common cold. Wiping the faucet and sink surface with the same old rag and bucket method does not even come near to getting rid of the germs in your restroom sinks. The healthiest method for cleaning your restrooms is to get more modern and take advantage of newer technology specifically designed to leave your restroom sinks sparkling and germ free.

 

Smart Towels


The traditional method for cleaning a restroom sink is to use a spray bottle or bucket filled with cleaning solution. The cleaning staff wets the sink with the solution and then geberally wipes everything down with a wadded-up cleaning rag. This method simply transfers germs from one surface to another as the rag becomes more soiled; it doesn't actually clean the room at all. What's worse is sometimes these rags are the same used on the toilets, creating serious cross contamination issues and further aiding the spead disease.

 

The best technique for cleaning a restroom sink by hand is the folding method. A square microfiber cloth is folded into quarters, and only one surface of the cloth is used on each section to be cleaned. After one part of the cloth is soiled, it can be refolded, revealing a clean section. Kaivac's SmartTowel goes one step further, allowing your staff to clean with confidence. When the microfiber towel is folded, you'll see the numbers 1?4 or 5?8 in the corners. Workers will know exactly what surface to use each time they change areas just by following the numbers.

 

Touch-Free Cleaning


Employees can clean restroom sinks even faster and more easily by employing Kaivac's No-Touch Cleaning System. Your sinks will be sparkling and germ-free without anyone having to scrub or wipe an area. The no-touch system blends a cleaning solution that your staff can spray directly onto faucets, sinks, and surrounding walls. After allowing the solution to penetrate the soil, a powerful jet of clean water will spray all the solution from the faucet, sinks, and walls. If you'll be opening the restroom up to the public soon, the cleaning staff can use the attached blow dry system to quickly dry all the surfaces. A quick squeegee wipe to the mirror, and your restroom sink area will be perfectly clean without anyone having to scrub or wipe.

    KaiBlooey is a high performance restroom cleaner that contains a blend of fast-acting mild acids to de-scale mineral deposits and remove soap scum. KaiBlooey is low-foaming and designed specifically for use with our wet vacuum systems. Too often, users simply apply common cleaning detergents or mop soaps when cleaning and then carelessly vacuum them up. This is like pouring standard dish soap into an automatic dish washer. The result is predictable - extreme foaming, filling the vacuum tank with useless suds and causing premature shut-off. Worse, the excess foam has the potential to damage the vacuum motor.
