Restaurant Restroom Cleaning: Developing Good Habits

Your employees will not be able to keep your restaurant's restroom looking its best if they haven't been trained in the best cleaning techniques. With restaurant restroom cleaning, the list of small details to remember can be formidable for novice employees. If their only previous experience is in cleaning their own home bathroom, they are likely to have bad habits they'll need to overcome or be unfamiliar with important details of professional restroom cleaning. The only way for employees to consistently hit the mark is for them to receive training on the best techniques and the most modern cleaning systems.

 

Easily Overlooked Details


Restrooms are breeding grounds for bacteria that cause illness, so it's important for the person doing the restaurant restroom cleaning to be aware of all the places these bacteria can lurk. Some of these places can be easily overlooked during the cleaning process, so it's important for employees to remember to give these spots some attention:

 

  • Faucets and faucet handles
  • Soap dispensers
  • Paper towel dispensers
  • Door handles, both the room door and the doors to the stalls
  • Light switches and switch plates

Safety First

Most restaurant restrooms have tile floors that can be slick and slippery when wet. Your employees should alert customers when they're cleaning the restroom as a courtesy, but more importantly, they need to make them aware of the wet floors and other surfaces after the cleaning job is finished. Setting out wet floor signs, both inside and outside the restroom door, is a crucial step that should be taken every time a restroom is cleaned to avoid accidents.

 

Top to Bottom


Restroom cleaning is designed to remove soil and eliminate disease-causing bacteria, so it always includes water-based cleaning solutions. Water you use to clean higher surfaces will drip down onto lower surfaces, so everything you clean higher up in the room will contaminate the lower fixtures. Cleaning the lights and upper walls should be the first order of business when cleaning a restaurant restroom, then you should move on to the lower spots. The quickest and most efficient way to accomplish this task is by using Kaivac's No-Touch Cleaning System. A low-pressure spray applies a cleaning solution to the walls and fixtures. After waiting a moment or two, you can use a rinsing spray to remove soil and bacteria, forcing the solution downward onto the floor where it can be vacuumed away, leaving the entire room clean and germ free.
