Restroom Cleaning Procedures

At CNY Cleaning Solutions, we prioritize thorough and safe cleaning practices to ensure our clients' restrooms are spotless and hygienic. Below are the steps all staff should follow when cleaning a client’s restroom:

Step 1: Prepare and Wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

  • Gloves: Always wear disposable gloves to protect your hands from chemicals and contaminants.
  • Safety Goggles: Protect your eyes from splashes.
  • Face Mask: Use a mask if cleaning involves strong chemicals or if the area is poorly ventilated.

Step 2: Gather Cleaning Supplies

  • Approved disinfectants and cleaners
  • Microfiber cloths
  • Mop and bucket
  • Toilet brush
  • Trash bags
  • Broom and dustpan
  • Paper towels or cloth towels
  • Glass cleaner

Step 3: Remove Trash and Restock Supplies

  • Start by emptying all trash bins.
  • Clean the exterior of trash cans before replacing liners.
  • Replace liners with new bags.
  • Check and restock all soaps, hand towels, and toilet paper. Ensure these items are fully stocked to avoid customer complaints.

Step 4: Dust High and Low Working Clockwise

  • Dust all surfaces, including vents, light fixtures, partitions, and dispensers. Also, dust baseboards and corners.
  • Work from high to low to avoid placing dust on cleaned surfaces or mopped floors.

Step 5: Clean and Disinfect Toilets and Urinals

  • Apply toilet bowl cleaner to the inside of the bowls and allow it to sit.
  • Clean and disinfect other surfaces while the cleaner works.
  • Return to scrub the toilet bowl and urinals with a toilet brush. Replace odor cakes in urinals if needed.
  • Wipe down the exterior of toilets, including the base, handle, and exterior of the bowl, with disinfectant. Clean the underside of urinals and all partitions or dividers.

Step 6: Clean Sinks and Countertops

  • Apply disinfectant cleaner to sinks and countertops.
  • Scrub sinks thoroughly, paying attention to faucets, handles, and around the drain to remove water buildup and deposits.

Step 7: Clean Mirrors and Glass

  • Spray glass cleaner on mirrors and glass surfaces.
  • Wipe down with a lint-free cloth to ensure a streak-free finish.

Step 8: Clean High-Touch Areas

  • Disinfect doorknobs, light switches, hand dryers, and paper towel dispensers.
  • Spot clean walls to remove fingerprints and smudges.
  • Clean window ledges, tile, and other high-touch surfaces.

Step 9: Sweep and Mop the Floor

  • Sweep all corners and collect debris before mopping, focusing on corners and edges.
  • Place caution or wet floor signs at the entrance to prevent accidents.
  • Prepare a mop bucket with the appropriate floor cleaner and water.
  • Mop the floor, starting from the farthest corner and working towards the exit.
  • Allow the floor to dry completely.

Step 10: Final Inspection

  • Ensure all areas are clean and free of debris.
  • Check for any spots that might need a touch-up.
  • Dispose of used PPE and wash hands thoroughly.

By following these steps, CNY Cleaning Solutions ensures a clean, safe, and sanitary restroom environment for all our clients.
