Green Cleaning in Restrooms

Many people believe that chemicals are necessary to provide a deep clean, but in fact, green cleaning can be just as effective, if not more so. Furthermore, green cleaning is much better for your health and the environment. Your customers and employees can potentially have an allergic reaction to a cleaning chemical, so, by using alternative methods, you can provide a better experience for everyone who uses your facilities. Here's everything you need to know about green cleaning in restrooms.

 

The Tendency to Use Chemical Cleaners


Many employees lean toward using chemical cleaners because chemicals can speed up the process of loosening soil from restroom fixtures and floors. But if employees use tools that can do the detail cleaning for them, this long wait time is no longer an issue.

 

A Safer Alternative


Instead of using harsh chemicals, green cleaning in restrooms involves using plain tap water to loosen the soil. In most cases, it can take a long time to get to the clean surface below the built-up soil. But with no-touch cleaning systems, your employees will actually be able to clean the restroom faster and more efficiently than they would have with traditional methods. The high-pressure spray from these systems remove soil, foreign objects, and bacteria from restroom surfaces. Then, a high-powered vacuum removes all objectionable materials, leaving the floors clean and dry. Because these advanced cleaning systems can dry surfaces quickly and thoroughly, they minimize the possibility of slip-and-fall accidents and therefore prevent you from having to close off a high-traffic area for safety reasons.

 

A Deeper Clean


Green cleaning products have been proven to provide a deep clean. A study conducted by an independent NELAP-accredited laboratory found that the Kaivac No-Touch Cleaning System was faster and more effective than chemical-cleaning alternatives. In the tests, this system removed more than 99.9 percent of targeted bacteria when it was used with plain tap water.

 

Other Green Cleaning Solutions


Many household items can also be used as effective green cleaning solutions. White vinegar works well on mirrors and other shiny surfaces, while lemon juice is great for combating greasy fingerprints. And, when dealing with standard, everyday spills, plain soap and water is always a good option. These household items work well in certain cleaning situations, and can serve you well in cleaning various touch points.
