3 Tips For Keeping a Fresh Workplace Bathroom

October 5, 2017 staplesbusinessadvantagecanada

Keeping the workplace clean and fresh is one of the best things that businesses can do for employee morale. It is a good idea to have a cleaning action plan, either geared toward the cleaning service you work with or toward the employees responsible for keeping your workplace clean. Such a plan should include a bathroom component, and to that end, here are three tips for keeping your workplace bathroom fresh and clean.

  1. Add Greenery (and Care for It!)
    A plant or two plants (or more) go a long way toward freshening up your bathroom. For example, a bamboo plant in an intriguing vase adds a splash of style and sophistication to a bathroom. Do make sure that detritus from the plant(s) is tidied up on a daily basis and the water kept fresh. You may prefer fake plants instead, but replace them before they become faded or torn. Dust them too.
  2. Clean Ventilators and Replace Air Fresheners
    Part of making your bathroom airy and welcoming entails placing air fresheners and ventilators strategically. Clean the vents once a month, and change the filters then too. Keep plenty of air freshener supplies on hand.
  3. Balance Technology and Practicality
    Sanitation is a must for freshness. Therefore, install touchless devices that promote good hygiene. Examples include touchless soap dispensers, touchless hand dryers and touchless paper towel dispensers. Don’t become so high-tech, though, that you neglect practices such as emptying the trash frequently and having ample space for garbage.

By following the three simple tips above, you are well on your way to having a clean and fresh bathroom. Developing a checklist will help keep your cleaning action plan on track.
