What is a bathroom cleaning checklist?

A bathroom cleaning checklist is a guidance tool used by facility management personnel to maintain bathroom cleanliness standards in the workplace. It also helps managers evaluate the performance of cleaning personnel by checking their work against the checklist.

Aside from ensuring productivity of cleaning staff and compliance with standard cleaning practices, a bathroom cleaning checklist template can also be used to record the condition of facilities, fixtures (including damage reports and repair requests), and inventory of sanitary supplies

A bathroom cleaner guide such as a checklist is essential not just for aesthetics, but also for hygienic purposes since certain strains of bacteria common to unhygienic bathrooms can cause sickness.

This article features: 1) what a bathroom cleaning checklist is; 2) top 3 tips for complete bathroom cleanliness; 3) mobile app to assist in bathroom cleaning and evaluations

Top 3 Tips for Complete Bathroom Cleanliness

Bathroom cleaning does not end with just removing visible stains and dirt. There are other, subtle ways facility management teams can ensure that bathrooms are both clean and rid of disease-causing bacteria.

  1. Use the exhaust fan

    Bathrooms are a common high-moisture area which make them prime environments for mold, fungi, mildew, and dust mite growth. People who are allergic to molds and spores can experience asthma, headaches, and gastroenteritis if exposed, among other symptoms. It’s important to utilize the bathroom exhaust fan to get rid of excess moisture and prevent the development of molds and spores. Clean the exhaust fan regularly to keep it free from dirt and debris.

  2. Clean both the inside and the outside of the toilet bowl

    About 34,000 units of bacteria can be found on an average toilet bowl, most of them in the inner bowl under the rim. Begin by flushing the toilet bowl with the lid down, then add a cleaning solution as close to the rim as possible. After cleaning the outside of the toilet and the seat, make sure that the inner rim is thoroughly scrubbed before closing the lid and flushing it again to wash down any excess cleaning solution.

  3. Prevent breakdowns

    The preventive maintenance of furnaces help ensure that they are safe to operate and do not breakdown and cause disruption to the day-to-day operation of commercial establishments and negatively impact living conditions in residential properties.
