Bathroom cleaning can be one of the most dreaded household and janitorial jobs, especially if you find that you need to do it often. Restaurants, hotels, schools, hospitals, daycare centers, and other public facilities can have a real problem with this as historically, their bathrooms have been notorious for requiring frequent cleaning due to the high usage - and it seems, no matter how often you clean, it is never enough. Add to this our current worries about H1N1, MRSI, and other communicable diseases, and the bathroom has become an area for deep concern both at home and wherever you work, play or spend time.
Historically, bathroom cleaning products have included dangerous products including: harsh chemical cleaners, disinfecting cleaners, solvents, tile & grout products, abrasive cleansers, bleach for mold & mildew, acidic bowl products, and deodorizers. As a rule, these types of products require fequent, repeated use to maintain a healthy atmosphere in the bathroom, yet they are dangerous for the user.
Now, with the recent introduction of a whole new range of MULTIPURPOSE, SAFE, GREEN CLEANING PRODUCTS and more effective disinfectants there is a real opportunity to actually reduce the number of products used, reduce the frequency of cleaning, and increase the effective cleaning action in the process. The idea of teaming up GREEN CLEANING products with EFFECTIVE DISINFECTANTS can provide an opportunity for 'the Best of Both Worlds' - a Clean and Safe environment for you and your family to feel safe and secure wherever you are - at home or away.
Let's start with the GREEN CLEANING PRODUCT.
For this application, we suggest our EATOILS™ SUPERFRESH™ - an GREENER-CHOICE™ APPROVED GREEN CLEANING PRODUCT
designed specifically for hard surface cleaning. SUPERFRESH™
is a microbial cleaning product that deep cleans
- deep down into the pores of all hard surfaces, removing all types of contaminants without the use of solvents or harsh chemicals
. Then, this new type of microbial cleaning product continues to clean and digest any residual materials from the surface, including sources of odor and mold & mildew
. The result is a much cleaner surface with fewer food sources for harmful viruses and bacteria to dwell on. Due to the continuous cleaning characteristics of this product the frequency of cleaning can be dramatically reduced and the effect on grout and tile is clearly evident. Clients who use this product report that they clean less often, the product addresses all odor issues, the grout lines come up like new, and their clients notice the improved cleanliness in these areas. By using this product several of the historically used products (harsh chemicals, solvents, abrasive cleansers, grout & tile cleaner, deodorizer, bleach for mold & mildew, bowl cleaner) can be replaced with a single GREEN product - SUPERFRESH™
. If there is a build-up of calcification or lime scale on fixtures, a 'green' scale remover using organic salts can remove it on an 'as needed' basis.
On the disinfecting front there are a number of products that clearly can address specific pathogens. You should choose a product that will address the viruses and pathogens that you are concerned about controlling - General sanitizers and disinfectants may not address the problem areas that concern you. As these disinfectant products typically work for a 1 to 5 minute timeframe, killing all organic lifeforms on their list of controlled pathogens, the timing of application should be scheduled to coincide with the best time for mitigating potential exposure.
TIMING OF APPLICATIONS
For example, if you disinfect all surfaces at the beginning of the day and every hour throughout the day in high traffic bathrooms, daycares and hospitals; every other hour in restaurants, mall washrooms, and public venues; three times a day in workplaces, etc. you will probably have a pretty good disinfection system in place for most situations. Naturally, you would consider increased frequency in a situation where germs are spreading like if the H1N1 begins to spread.
Due to the microbial nature of the SUPERFRESH™
product, you should wash all surfaces with SUPERFRESH™ approximately 10 - 20 minutes after disinfecting to get the 'best of both worlds' - deep cleaning action and disinfection.
