Guide For Maintaining The Cleanliness Of Public Restrooms

A warm welcome to all readers, Today we will discuss and try to shed some light on keeping public restrooms clean. From the name itself, you might have guessed what will be cooking today!! No matter in which part of the country you reside, public restrooms and cleanliness go hand in hand. “Would thou wert clean enough to spit upon!” is a well-known proverb. To put it simply, it means the sight of someone makes you feel ill. Here, you can simply relate “someone” to the public restroom. Even though Australia is considered one of the cleanest countries in the world, the public restroom’s image remains unchanged no matter where you go. So to avoid these, we present a guide that deals with arranging cleaning tasks by segregating the restroom into different zones to ensure proper cleaning and minimize hygiene-related issues.

Zone-based cleaning service:
This cleaning approach is systematic, where the cleaning takes place based on allocated areas. Instead of random cleaning, this method ensures more effective and thorough cleaning. Listed below are a few important and beneficial pointers to make it easier to understand:

  • Efficiency: It’s better to focus on one zone at a time.
  • Thoroughness: Cleaning will be more effective if no space is overlooked.
  • Reduce cross-contamination: Use separate tools for each zone to avoid spreading germs.
  • Customization: Adjust the cleaning to the design and requirements of the restrooms.

Restroom Fixtures:

Maintaining restroom fixtures is very crucial in terms of hygiene and preventing the spread of germs. Below, we will provide a cleaning procedure for toilets, urinals, and sinks, along with the importance of disinfection.


  • Start by wearing gloves and an apron
  • Flush the toilet to wet the bowl, and apply bowl cleaner or disinfectant.
  • Scrub the area after applying the cleaner.
  • Pay extra attention to areas that are stained.
  • Give time for the cleaner to sit and disinfect.
  • Lastly, dry it with a cloth or paper towel.


  • Similar to toilet cleaning, wear protective gear.
  • Flush the urinal to make the surface wet.
  • Apply the urinal cleaner or disinfectant.
  • Use a brush or sponge to scrub the areas.
