1Cleaning Restrooms and Shower Rooms, Where “Germs” AreThe Primary ConcernCWM/Hillyard
2The Importance Of Clean Restrooms Public perceptionBarometer of overall building cleanliness.Public health inspectors may close facilityCaulking - cracked or missingFloors - corners, drains, under & around fixturesFixtures - hard water crust - not workingNo soap / paperWalls - under & around fixturesBreeding groundBacteria, viruses, fungi & odorsTo protect the health of occupants
4A Clean Restroom Will Have No Odors Clean Restrooms have a Neutral OdorNot fragrances covering malodors – zero / neutral
5“Start Clean To Stay Clean” RESTROOM RENOVATION“Start CleanToStay Clean”Restroom RenovationThe first strategy of modern restroom maintenance is to “Start Clean to Stay Clean.” A clean, renovated restroom is much easier to keep clean on a daily basis. Renovation can usually be accomplished with just two products: Hillyard Extra Strength CSP cleaner and one of our disinfectant cleaners. Most of our disinfectant cleaners are neutral cleaners that disinfect as they clean. All are EPA registered and control mold, mildew, athlete’s foot fungi, germs and the odors they cause.
6T.A.C.T. Principle For products to work effectively, they need: Time Time to penetrate and loosen soilsAgitationSoils won’t disappear without assistanceConcentrationCorrect dilutionTemperatureMost products formulated for cold water only
7How Disinfectants Work Disinfection occurs only if the solution is at the correct dilution.Disinfectants lose effectiveness in relation to the amount of foreign matter suspended in the solution. “… In the presence of 5% serum…”Take time to work100% kill = 10 min.
8How Do Disinfectants Work? SanitizersReduces the Number of Bacterial Contaminates to Safe LevelsClean water and a clean cloth will sanitize a surfaceDisinfectantsAgents that eliminate (kill) microorganisms
9How Disinfectants Work Phenolics: Work by disrupting cell membranes and denaturing proteinsDisadvantages: irritating to skin; can cause skin depigmentation, irritating to nose and throat, toxic, dangerous to infants, poor water solubility, may discolor or otherwise damage surfaces with which they come in contact.Some states consider discarded phenolic compounds to be hazardous waste
10How Disinfectants Work Quat-based disinfectants carry a positive charge. Bacteria, viruses and fungi carry a negative charge. When a bacteria-laden surface is sprayed or mopped with a disinfectant, the charge distribution of the bacteria cell changes from negative to positive. This results in the disruption of the bacteria cell wall and eventual death to the microbe.
11How Disinfectants Work Hypochlorites (Bleach) do not work well in the presence of soils, so surfaces must be pre-cleaned.Highly caustic to skin and surfaces.Highly reactive with other chemicals that easily release toxic gasses.The odor is so strong when diluted correctly, that most people tend to use less than necessary for complete disinfectionDegrades quickly when diluted, exposed to air, or light.
12Germ Growth and Reproduction From One to 64 Billion in Just 12 HoursAre Restrooms Cleaned Every 12 Hours?And so on …
13Disinfecting...For small restrooms or restrooms without a floor drain...Use a 32 oz. Trigger sprayer, or…Use a 2 qt. Pump-up sprayer, or…Use a 2, or 3 gal. Pump-up shoulder sprayer.

15Disinfecting... Spray all surfaces Spray walls – top to bottom All objects have 6 sides outside (if hollow also have 6 sides inside) spray as many as can be reachedSpray walls – top to bottomPartitionsUnder fixturesInside & outside sanitary cansAllow dwell time…
16Disinfecting... Agitate Use Appropriate Tools For The Surface... Cleaning ClothsSpongesHand PadsSwivel Pad HoldersSwivel ScrubbersMicrofiber flat mopScrapers
17Disinfecting... Remember: Disinfectants take time to work Disinfection occurs only if the solution is at the correct dilutionDisinfectants take time to work- ten minutes of dwell time for full kill
18Disinfecting... Begin soft Increase aggressiveness as necessary Finest-first ruleDo no harm
19Disinfecting... Wipe dry Polish chrome, porcelain Apply any treatments Use a squeegee on large smooth surfacesWalls, partitions, etc.Polish chrome, porcelainAll surfaces with a shine (bright-work), should shine - no water spots or streaksApply any treatmentsRefill dispensers

21Floors…Mop with Pulse micro-fiber Mopping System changing pads when soiled or every other restroomRefinish if necessary
22After You’ve Finished...Rinse pail and bowl mop - shake out excess waterSpray with disinfectant and hang brush to air dryClean and disinfect glovesClean buffer & wet-vac – use disinfectant to prevent odors developingClean micro-fiber pads, hang to dryClean all tools usedDon’t’ let your tools become a source of cross-contamination
23Daily Restroom Maintenance Keep Them CleanQ.T.®; Re-Juv-Nal®; and Vindicator® + are all concentrated, hospital grade, quaternary disinfectants effective in water with up to 400 ppm hardness and in the presence of 5% serum contamination, containing detergents, sanitizers, fungicides, mildewstats, virucides and deodorizers that clean and control the hazard of cross-contamination from environmental surfaces providing effective protection against a broad spectrum of bacteria. All are neutral in pH, are easy-to-use and have a pleasant fragrance. Their superb cleaning-disinfecting properties will help rid your restrooms of dirt, soap film, body oils, mildew, and athlete's foot fungi plus other pathogenic bacteria and the odors they cause.
