Keeping commercial spaces clean and hygienic is essential for the health and well-being of employees, customers, and visitors. In particular, proper cleaning and maintenance of bathrooms, floors, and regular disinfection are critical to prevent the spread of germs and ensure a safe environment. In this blog post, we will explore the key aspects of commercial cleaning, focusing on bathroom hygiene, floor care, and disinfection.

Bathroom Hygiene

Maintaining cleanliness and hygiene in the bathroom is crucial to prevent the transmission of diseases and maintain a positive image of your commercial space. It is one of the key areas of any commercial space that gets highlighted right away by your employees and customers. Some important practices to follow include:

  1. Daily Cleaning Routine: Ensure that the bathroom is cleaned and sanitized thoroughly each day. This includes cleaning and disinfecting toilets, sinks, faucets, door handles, and other high-touch surfaces.

  2. Adequate Supply of Hygiene Products: Keep a sufficient stock of soap, hand sanitizers, paper towels, and toilet paper in the bathrooms. Regularly check and refill these supplies to encourage proper hand hygiene.

  3. Proper Waste Disposal: Provide appropriate waste bins and ensure they are regularly emptied. Proper disposal of waste, including sanitary products, is important for maintaining cleanliness and preventing foul odors.

  4. Regular Deep Cleaning: Schedule periodic deep cleaning sessions to address hard-to-reach areas, such as grout cleaning, tile scrubbing, and disinfecting hidden corners.

  5. Include motion censored devices in your bathroom. This can include soap dispensers, air dryers, toilet flushing, and the door to get in/out. Sometimes avoiding the door altogether, provides not only cost savings, but also better hygiene in the bathroom area.

Floor Care

Maintaining clean and well-maintained floors is not only important for appearance but also for safety and hygiene. Consider the following points for effective floor care in commercial spaces:

  1. Regular Sweeping and Vacuuming: Implement a routine sweeping and vacuuming schedule to remove dirt, dust, and debris from the floors. This prevents the buildup of allergens and promotes a cleaner environment.

  2. Mopping and Deep Cleaning: Regularly mop the floors with appropriate cleaning solutions to remove stains and spills. Depending on the type of flooring, periodic deep cleaning may also be necessary to remove embedded dirt and maintain the shine of the surface.

  3. Floor Protection: Place mats at entrances and high-traffic areas to minimize the amount of dirt and moisture brought into the space. This helps to reduce wear and tear on the floors and extend their lifespan.

  4. Prompt Repairs: Fix any damaged or uneven flooring promptly to prevent accidents and injury. Cracked tiles or loose floorboards can pose a safety hazard and should be repaired as soon as possible.


Disinfection is a critical component of commercial cleaning, especially in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Here are some essential steps for effective disinfection:

  1. Selecting the Right Disinfectants: Use disinfectants that are recommended by health authorities and proven to be effective against a wide range of pathogens. Follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer, including contact time and dilution ratios.

  2. High-Touch Surface Focus: Pay extra attention to high-touch surfaces such as doorknobs, light switches, countertops, and handrails. These areas are more likely to harbor germs and should be cleaned and disinfected frequently.

  3. Electrostatic Sprayers: Consider using electrostatic sprayers for disinfection, as they provide a more comprehensive and efficient coverage of surfaces. This technology helps the disinfectant to adhere better, ensuring a more thorough disinfection process.

  4. Regular Disinfection Schedule: Establish a routine schedule for disinfection, considering the specific needs and footfall of your commercial space. Regular and consistent disinfection is crucial for maintaining a germ-free environment.


Maintaining proper hygiene in commercial spaces is of utmost importance to protect the health and safety of everyone who enters the premises. By prioritizing bathroom hygiene, implementing effective floor maintenance practices, and following proper disinfection protocols, you can create a clean and healthy environment for employees, customers, and visitors alike. Remember, commercial cleaning is an ongoing process and should be performed diligently and consistently to ensure the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene.
