The Dirty Truth about Public Toilets

washroom cleaningHow clean are your office bathrooms – Do they just look clean or are they really clean—deep down? Does your staff really know how to handle the need to get rid of the down and dirty? According to a recent survey, many public toilets are not as clean as they should be.

Washroom maintenance is an important daily task with which most facility management professionals are familiar since restrooms are a frequently used area in any facility and their upkeep can affect public perceptions. But in the survey, conducted by ISSA and Clorox Professional Products Co., it’s difficult for some managers to uncover what it takes to keep this critical area in top shape.

Visible dirt and unseen germs

When it comes to public toilets, there are two important jobs: cleaning for appearance and cleaning for health. Maintaining a visibly clean restroom is important for influencing consumer perception. At the same time, washrooms must be disinfected to kill harmful microorganisms, such as Shigella, Salmonella, Hepatitis A, E. Coli, and Norovirus, which are routinely found in toilets and are associated with outbreaks of illness.

Keeping a washroom disinfected can help prevent the spread of illness-causing germs to building occupants and the community at-large, especially during the winter months. According to survey results, most professionals (85%) are fully aware of the importance of this dual relationship of cleaning for appearance and health. The vast majority (95%) also believe that restroom cleaning has an impact on overall public health by helping to prevent the spread of disease.

However, this understanding may not trickle down to all employees; only one-half of respondents (49%) believe their staff is aware of all the risk associated with the spread of germs in the restroom.

Turning a blind eye to cleaning training

Keeping on top of office toilet cleaning needs can be demanding, and although only 15% of respondents report a lack of education or training as a challenge to performing optimal washroom cleaning, far more (68%) say their staff does not understand or only somewhat understands the differences between cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting.

At Cleansweep, we understand the importance of cleaning toilets for appearance as well as for health. Our operatives are trained regularly on cleaning techniques and chemicals appropriate for washroom deep cleaning.

Cleansweep provides professional carpet cleaning in Delhi, Gurgaon, Faridabad, Noida and Greater Noida to ensure clean carpets. Regular cleaning and maintenance of your carpets ensure that they look fresh and clean, keep dust and allergies at bay, promote a healthy environment and increase the lifespan of the carpet.

Given below are some useful tips for regular maintenance of commercial carpets.

1.       Vacuum often: Regular vacuuming will remove dry soiling from carpet and prevent dirt and grime from settling deep into the fibre of the carpet. To protect your carpet, vacuum entrance and high traffic areas daily, three times a week for moderate traffic area and once a week for corners and skirting. Ensure that the filter of the vacuum is cleaned and changed regularly as well.

2.       Walk off / dust mats: Place these mats at the entrance to the office so people can dust the dirt from their feet onto the mat before entering the office. Note, the walk-off mat also needs to be vacuumed regularly.

3.       Encourage prompt spot cleaning: The daily cleaning staff should be trained to handle common spillages with the help of carpet spot cleaning. This will ensure the stain is removed immediately and doesn’t penetrate into the carpet fibre to become a permanent stain. Common stains like coffee, tea, ink, soda can be cleaned by blotting the stain with a clean, soft cloth. Then use an appropriate carpet cleaning chemical to remove the rest of the stain.

4.       Regular deep cleaning: Hire a professional carpet cleaning company on an annual maintenance contract to come in at regular intervals to deep clean the carpets. They can use the carpet shampoo or the steam cleaning method, as appropriate.

Stain testing on polished marble

Stain_testing_GroupL

After polishing marble, using the grinding and honing method, a sealer can be applied to protect the Marble. Marble is a soft stone resulting from metamorphism of sedimentary carbonate rocks, most commonly limestone or dolomite. Given the nature of the stone, it can react with substances that fall on it, causing a chemical reaction, which can stain the Marble. Sealers help to protect the Marble against the same.
 
There are several sealers available in the market. Before a applying a sealer, one should test a small area with different sealers to check which one is best absorbed by the stone. Since Marble is cut from a natural rock, chemical composition is different in every stone, hence sealers can react differently on different types of Marble.
 
R&D is important on sealers. One such testing happening at our office on Saturday using DuPont sealer on which has been spilled tea, coffee, water, ketchup and mustard.

 

Washroom Cleaning Tips

Bathrooms often get the dirtiest and are home to many kinds of bacteria and germs. Special care must be taken to keep the area clean and sparkling! At Cleansweep, we have put together some useful bathroom cleaning tips, which you can try at home using only natural products. Cleansweep is a reputed washroom cleaning service provider in Delhi NCR.

Mirrors

Your mirrors will look brand new if you sprinkle a mixture of vinegar and water on old newspaper and use it to scrub your mirrors.

WC

Close the water faucet/tap to the WC and flush to drain all the water. Pour a bottle of vinegar into the WC tank, squeeze a lemon if desired. Scrub the insides of the tank with a brush. Let the vinegar sit in the tank and bowl for as long as possible (overnight or a couple of hours). Thereafter, open the water faucet/tap to the WC and flush twice.

Grout

Grout in the bathroom is porous and could lead to the growth of bacteria. Mix water and bleach in the ratio of 10:1. Dip an old toothbrush in the mixture and scrub the grout to remove any mildew. Rinse well once completed.

Sink / Wash Basin

To clean the drain of your sink, pour ½ cup baking soda followed by ½ cup of vinegar down the drain. Let it stand for a few minutes, then pour boiling hot water to clear the drain. The sink can be scrubbed with a mixture of vinegar and water. Sprinkle vinegar on a microfiber cloth to polish bathroom fittings.

Shower Cubicle

Hard water deposits on shower cubicle can be hard to remove if you don’t do a regular deep clean. Prepare a paste of vinegar and baking soda. Apply the paste to the hard water stains using a scrubbing sponge or toothbrush in a circular motion. Leave the paste for 15 minutes. Remove the paste with a damp cloth. If the stain persists, spray a mixture of vinegar and water on the glass and wipe off with newspaper.

Shower Nozzle

Hard water often builds up in the shower nozzle. To remove, fill a packet of white vinegar, tie it to your shower submerging the nozzle in it. Leave it overnight and rinse well in the morning.

Fire Safety in Public Places

fire_safety

Last month’s terrible fire that ripped through two upscale restaurants in Mumbai’s Kamala Mills has come as a shocking wake up call. Fourteen people lost their lives. Most were young people in their twenties and thirties whose bodies were found piled up in the toilet, where they retreated hoping to escape the fire. This could have been any of us, who visit restaurants, bars, clubs to enjoy a night out!!

To prevent such incidents repeating themselves, we have compiled a few useful fire safety tips to keep in mind when enjoying yourselves at a public place.

  • Know your exits. Wherever you are, you must take a moment to mentally note where the different exits are. These signs are usually lit up and easy to find. Most of the people who died in the Kamal Mills fire tragedy had trapped themselves in an un-ventilated bathroom with no escape and they suffocation to death.
  • Be aware of location of fire extinguisher and / or water hose. Observe as if your life depends on it. It does.
  • Our fire safety norms are followed rarely in public places. Therefore, avoid shows where the performers use fire as a prop.
  • Heat and therefore smoke rises, staying low, as low as you can get, helps. If there is smoke in the room it is advisable to crawl on your belly. Almost all deaths from fire arise from suffocation caused by smoke and not from the actual fire.
  • If you are trapped in a room with no exit the best thing you can do is stay low to the ground, breathe through a cloth or clothing over your mouth and nose, and make some kind of a signal to the outside (example hanging any garment, even a tablecloth out of a window). If windows are locked, break them and try to signal for help.

We urge you to take a few minutes to be aware of your surroundings and stay safe!

At GroupL Services, we provide fire safety training at our clients’ sites. Please email us on first-impressions@groupl.in to schedule a fire safety training. Cleansweep is a division of GroupL Services.
