Green Cleaning Restrooms

Green Cleaning Restrooms

Green cleaning restrooms can improve the quality of indoor air and decrease problems like allergic reactions that can come with chemical cleaners. Restrooms are the one place in your home, business, and/or school that gets high volumes of traffic. Sometimes, effective cleaning of these areas goes unnoticed. But it does have a great effect on people

Some studies have shown the effectiveness of green cleaning restrooms on people. There appear to be fewer cases of skin/eye/respiratory irritations, allergies, headaches, nausea, and maybe even cancers in those places where green cleaners are used.

Following are a few things to keep in mind when you consider green cleaning restrooms:

First, you do not have to use antibacterial hand soap in most restrooms. Only in those places like food or medical environments is this kind of soap required. Otherwise, no. Why? Illnesses like the common cold and the flu are caused by viruses, not bacteria.  Certainly, it’s important to have signs talking about the benefits of handwashing in all places.

Second, microfiber is very useful in green cleaning restrooms. This material can absorb up to seven times its weight in water and has a fantastic attraction to dirt and dust. The tiny “hooks” in microfiber scrape up and hold dust and dirt particles. This material captures the dirt instead of just moving it around. Due to its softness, it will not scratch surfaces.

Third, training of janitorial personnel is extremely important. Effectiveness and efficiency are foremost in green cleaning restrooms. They are achieved best with good training. In restrooms especially, training in disinfecting and not cross contaminating is essential.

Training is critical in the use of many green cleaning chemicals. Much of the time, these chemicals are concentrated and require proper dilution with water. And the amount of dilution is not always the same from green chemical to green chemical.

When considering green cleaning restrooms, volume has to be thought about. There are times and places when the traffic volume in restrooms is high. You may need to find a janitorial company that has specialized cleaning programs for different locations.
