Mall Restroom Cleaning during the Busy Summer Season

Mall Restroom Cleaning during the Busy Summer Season

Shopping malls receive a high volume of traffic at this time of year. Since school is out, many families head to the mall to spend some time together and escape the summer heat. Though this steady stream of customers is great for business, the increase in traffic makes it difficult for you to clean your facilities throughout the day. Here are some tips on the best practices for mall restroom cleaning.


Challenges


In order to provide the best conditions for mall patrons, you should shut down your restrooms once a day so that your custodial team can thoroughly clean the facilities. Furthermore, in an effort to prevent the buildup of bacteria, your team should clean touch points and other key areas several times during your hours of operation. But finding appropriate times to clean these areas can be challenging. As many malls include shops, restaurants, movie theaters, and family attractions, these complexes attract a lot of visitors during various times of the day.

In an effort to pinpoint a time when you can close your restrooms for deep cleaning without causing too much of an inconvenience for customers, you may want to conduct some research on the typical amount of traffic you receive during the mornings, afternoons, and evenings. As you will only be able to shut these facilities down for a limited amount of time, it's important for your custodial team to use advanced cleaning tools that will allow them to work quickly and thoroughly. For instance, they should use spray-and-vac systems instead of mops and buckets. These advanced systems can be up to 60 times more effective than traditional cleaning tools at reducing bacterial contamination from restroom toilets, stalls, floors, and sinks. And spray-and-vacuum systems allow you to reopen your facilities quickly because they leave your floors clean and dry, reducing the risk of slip-and-fall accidents.


Touch points, such as stall doors, paper towel dispensers, and soap dispensers, need constant attention throughout your hours of business because they can be major sources of bacteria transfer. Your custodians may use rags and disposable wipes to clean these touch points, but they must replace or wash them every time they move on to a new surface, as not doing so can lead to dangerous cross-contamination. In an effort to prevent this bacteria transfer, your team should use numbered microfiber towels. By following the number sequence, custodians can avoid using the same section of the towel to clean multiple surfaces.
