How To Keep Your Company’s Bathrooms Clean

clean toilet

A whopping 86% of customers said they wouldn’t return to a business if the bathrooms weren’t of a high standard in terms of cleanliness and hygiene. If this statistic doesn’t send you running to your company’s bathrooms with a mop and bucket, we’re not sure what will.


Whether you’re the owner of a restaurant or an office manager, here are some tips to keep your company’s bathrooms clean.

Reduce the spread of germs

Public bathrooms are one of the number one places where germs are able to thrive. With studies suggesting that just 5% of people wash their hands effectively after using the toilet, it’s easy to see how bathrooms become covered in bacteria.


We recommend giving your bathrooms a thorough clean at least once a day. On top of this, we’d advise cleaning common touch points on a more frequent basis. Bathroom touch points include:

  • Door handles
  • Light switches
  • Countertops
  • Taps
  • Hand dryer buttons
  • Locks on cubicles
  • Toilet chains, handles or buttons used to flush the toilet

Minimise odours

Although it’s normal for public bathrooms to be prone to unpleasant smells, if your business gains a reputation for having particularly smelly toilets, customers may start to avoid your business. Thankfully, odours can be tackled easily with the help of automated air fresheners, powerful toilets and regular inspections.

Embrace professional cleaning tools

Spraying surfaces with disinfectant and wiping them down isn’t always enough to effectively kill bacteria. For a more thorough and effective job, embrace professional cleaning tools such as steam cleaners and scrubber dryers.

If the thought of purchasing one of these tools outright is too daunting, why not look into Clean Sweep’s contract hire service. You’ll gain access to the tools you need for a fraction of the machine’s value. To learn more about our hire service, take a look at our industrial cleaning tools and get in touch with our team.
