Cleaning Your Retail Restrooms

Retail business restrooms can be a hard task to keep up with, when times of high volume and traffic hit it can be hard to spare employees to keep up with the bathroom cleaning. Keeping employees on the sales floor is usually the number one priority for any retail business but the restrooms can have a major impact on the company’s image too. Here are a few tips you can follow to keep your retail restrooms clean and customer approved.

Easy to Use Cleaning Supplies

Having a cart or caddy with all you cleaning supplies easily accessible for employees is a great way to save time and make the task easier on employees. Be sure to keep it stocked with all the necessary cleaning supplies such as disinfectant sprays, cleaning cloths, toilet cleaners, and toilet bowl brushes. Also, keep extra supplies in a convenient place for employees to restock when others run low or need replacing.


Having consistency in the cleaning crew can ensure your restrooms are cleaned to the same standards with every cleaning. This can mean keeping the same few employees on the restroom cleaning task and being sure to give them extra training in effectively cleaning the restrooms. If a consistent schedule and cleaning standard is kept it can help avoid bacteria and odor build up.

Deep Cleans

Deep cleanings should be performed at least twice a year, more deep cleanings would be best depending on the level of traffic your business sees. A deep cleaning should included washing the walls, fixtures, sanitizing floors, and extra sanitizing of other surfaces. Most of these items should be cleaned during a regular cleaning but extra time should be spent during deep cleans to ensure total cleanliness.

Maintenance Checks

As regular cleanings are performed fixtures should be tested and checked to be sure they are working and fully stocked. Every cleaning should include a check of the soap dispensers, paper towel holders, and toiler paper dispensers to be sure they are properly filled and their surfaces disinfected. If regular checks are done it is easier to notice anything that may not be functioning properly or may need maintenance work.
