A commercial restroom cleaning checklist is a great way to keep track of your cleaning time. It will also help you keep from missing important steps. But most generic check lists are not specific enough for me. Over the years I have build a system for creating my own bathroom cleaning checklists Because of the dynamic nature of these facilities, there are always challenges.
The fact that everyone in a building, at some point, will require the use of a restroom, keeping them clean is of the utmost importance. The reason that so many struggle with restroom cleaning is because there is rarely a plan in place to maintain over all cleanliness.
By putting a restroom cleaning plan into place, it becomes much easy to not only maintain restroom cleanliness, but it helps to avoid long term issues that become bigger problems.
Building You Commercial Restroom Cleaning Checklist
The restroom cleaning plan will give you an outline the daily cleaning tasks and procedures. This can be done by first taking an inventory of all of the fixtures in a restroom. Toilets, urinals, sinks, mirrors, dispensers and even partitions. Once you have a list of these items, apply the tasks that are needed to keep them clean. Each task should have a time associated with. ie: toilet cleaning should take 6 minutes per fixture. By assigning a time to the tasks, you can quickly apply this your schedule and budgeting.
Once all of the tasks have been outlined, specific restroom cleaning tools and products can be included. This makes it easy for the staff member to quickly determine what is needed to complete their work. It also helps with training new staff members as well.
Organize the tasks into a restroom cleaning checklist format with the word processing program of you choice. Keep the tasks in the order that each should be performed. Keep in mind ‘top down cleaning’ and eliminating cross contamination. Copies of the checklist can be kept on a custodial cart or in a storage closet for quick reference.
By taking the time to organize your plan into your own restroom cleaning checklist, you will find it will be a more effective tool. It also helps to establish a system, that gives you a customized schedule, budget and employee training course, specific to your facility.
