What’s the difference between cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting?

With the COVID-19 pandemic changing the way we clean public bathrooms, it’s crucial to understand the differences between cleaning, and sanitizing and disinfecting your bathroom. Let’s take a look at the two levels of getting rid of bathroom germs:

Cleaning - Cleaning does not have a smell; it simply means removing germs from a surface or a counter. Cleaning equipment must be changed, washed and dried in between uses to avoid the spread of harmful germs.

Sanitizing and Disinfecting - This method of cleaning removes germs by killing them, not just eliminating them off surfaces. This method is highly recommended for public washrooms as it disinfects ‘high touch’ areas that can potentially be filled with harmful bacteria that can be transmitted.


What are the 3 main steps for public restroom cleaning?

We equip you with the best sanitary products on the market to help you fulfill the three main steps of a restroom cleaning program for your organization. They are:


  1. Restoration Cleaning

Restorative cleaning requires strong specialized cleaning products, like our restroom maintenance range of supplies, that can truly make your public restroom sparkle. Areas that need to be cleaned and fully disinfected are floors, fixtures, dispensers and receptacles.


  1. Daily Cleaning 

Daily restroom cleaning is the best way to ensure that your public bathrooms are kept up to standard. Commercial restrooms get routine traffic, and if not properly disinfected, can spread germs and bacteria amongst your workspace. Combining daily cleaning methods with our quality cleaning products can help you lower the overall cost to maintain your restrooms and help those using your facilities gain peace of mind knowing that they’re taken care of. 

Some areas protocols to include in your daily cleaning routine include:

  • Fully stocked janitorial supplies

  • Fixture cleaning

  • Floor cleaning procedures

  • Changing the garbage daily


  1. Periodic Maintenance Bathroom Cleaning

While daily restroom cleaning should always be a top priority, it’s important to clean areas that require more attention and take longer to clean. High bathroom areas and floors should be cleaned thoroughly to eliminate harmful bacteria and viruses from making a home on surfaces. Additionally, detailed cleaning of restrooms helps reduce maintenance costs and the need for increased restorative cleaning.
