School toilet cleaning tips to keep your students safe
Making sure that your school bathrooms and changing rooms are clean should be a priority.
Not only does it help keep students safe by limiting the spread of bugs, but it also helps towards creating a better environment.
School cleanliness contributes to school pride
Using a commercial cleaner that’s trained and experienced in maintaining school cleanliness can go a huge way to driving school spirit.
It’s impossible to truly feel care and pride when you go into a filthy, unkempt, and dirty environment.
Not only will students and staff alike value cleanliness, but it will help instil a sense of pride and responsibility.

1. Pay special attention to the sink and toilet areas
This is one of the most important areas to work on as it’s the one that will get the most traffic. Using a disinfectant cleaner will limit the spread of germs whilst making sure the area looks (and smells) clean!
To clean school toilets, allow the disinfectant cleaner to rest for a few minutes before properly scrubbing with a toilet brush and flushing. While you’re waiting the allotted time, squirt the disinfectant all over and wipe it with a clean cloth.
This process can be repeated for the bathroom sink areas, however, it’s best to use a sponge to remove the build-up of soap residue and other things. This will work well for regular maintenance in between scheduled commercial cleans.
2. Don’t overlook areas!
Every single area within a school bathroom can play host to bugs and germs. It’s a pretty good rule that anywhere which can be touched should be wiped down.
Areas like radiators, door handles and hand dryers can often be neglected. These often-high traffic areas should be disinfected regularly to prevent the spread of sickness.
The best way to make sure no areas are missed is to work in a clock rotation. Work as if you’re travelling around the clock by cleaning everything within the section before moving on.
3. Clean up floor spills with a mop
A school bathroom floor can have a variety of spills during routine use. This area should not be neglected by your school commercial cleaner.
Using a mop along with school bathroom disinfectant cleaner diluted in hot water goes a long way towards keeping students safe.
Cleaning school restroom floors should be one of the last phases in your school’s cleaning regimen.
4. Finish with air freshener
Even regularly cleaned school toilets can play host to bad aromas. Often because of poor ventilation and/or size and frequent use, these smells can stick around.
It’s important to make using the school loo as pleasant of an experience as possible. So, spraying an air freshener should usually be the last step in your school loo cleaning routine.
