Relying on routine Commercial Bathroom Cleanings will go a long way toward having a healthy workplace.
In the era of the COVID-19 outbreak that has killed more than half a million Americans and scores more around the world, we are all more aware of hygiene and sanitizing, including at our commercial businesses. This rampant and highly transmissible coronavirus – which causes COVID-19 – has put the spotlight on cleanliness in ways that have forced us to reevaluate how we keep our commercial properties clean, and that includes bathroom cleaning.
When it comes to business premises, we know how vital it is to keep all rooms, break-rooms, conference rooms, and yes, bathrooms, cleaned and sanitized. With so many people milling about and bathrooms being most vulnerable to collecting viruses, bacteria, and germs, there needs to be a concerted effort to keep our commercial property restrooms super clean. It is all the more important to make sure that commercial bathrooms are cleaned and sanitized continuously as the COVID-19 virus has been found to stay on hard or metal surfaces for extended periods of time.
Benefits of Keeping Bathrooms at Commercial Properties Clean and Sanitized
Minimizes the Spread of Virus
Cleaning and sanitizing are two distinct processes that should be done in commercial property bathrooms. Doing so eliminates viruses from spreading but also gets rid of unpleasant odors. The most effective approach to cleaning commercial bathrooms is using warm water and detergent or bleach.
Bathroom cleaning by itself cannot kill all bad elements. It is recommended that after cleaning, that you sanitize the bathrooms, as that will truly make bathrooms healthy to be in. Be sure to select sanitizing products that are safe to use by the janitorial staff and don’t cause allergies. It is important that cleaners or janitorial staff of commercial restrooms be consistent in cleaning and sanitizing every part of the bathroom. You should include for cleaning door handles, supporting handrails, stalls, bathroom doors, faucets, as well as the sinks. This results in people who use the commercial bathroom not catching COVID-19 or other similar viruses when they come into contact with any part of the bathroom.
Keeps Bathroom Users Safe
It is a medical science fact that as we get older, our immune system weakens, which makes us more susceptible to diseases and viruses, including COVID-19. Older people and children are the most heavily monitored individuals during the COVID-19 pandemic, and that is because their immune systems are typically not as strong as they are for young and middle-aged adults.
This means that keeping the commercial restrooms regularly sanitized ensures the health and safety of every user from dangerous viruses. This requires sanitizing areas such as the curtains, handles, faucets, and doorknobs, as people can acquire viruses through droplets or by coming into contact with infected surfaces.
By thoroughly cleaning and sanitizing areas of the bathroom that users contact, you help to stop the transmission of viruses. Sanitization can keep the bathroom surfaces virus free and safe for every user.
The sanitization of commercial restrooms is imperative to help save lives, and not just the lives of users, but also the people around them.
Consider the possibility of one user in a commercial bathroom being a COVID-19 carrier and that person comes into contact with the stall door in the bathroom, for example. It is very likely that this person has already transmitted the virus. Even if this person washes their hands after using the cubicle, he has already left the COVID-19 virus on the stall door.
This means the next user of the bathroom could acquire the virus. If this person does not have a strong immune system, he or she might not survive the COVID-19 virus. However, if you have made sure to wipe off the stall door after the stall has been used, the virus will have been eliminated. It can no longer be transmitted. This could potentially save many lives from being at risk of catching the COVID-19 virus or other viruses.
Having a Healthy Workplace
Commercial property owners who are proactive and use the proper sanitation methods for their bathrooms will realize a healthier environment at their businesses that occupy the building. This will also prevent employees in large numbers from needing to take sick days because of illness outbreaks at their place of business.
With so many people coming and going from and to commercial properties, and people coming into contact with high touch areas such as doorknobs, stair rails, elevator buttons, etc., it is important that commercial property owners regularly clean and sanitize their bathrooms.
Maintaining clean and sanitized bathrooms will go a long way toward having a healthy workplace.
