Restroom maintenance logs keep track of the tasks that have been done to clean the restroom, such as sweeping and mopping floors, cleaning toilets, and providing supplies. A restroom must be stocked and cleaned regularly for both sanitation and customer satisfaction. All flat surfaces must be disinfected with industry-approved material.
Floors need to be cleaned via sweeping and mopping to remove solid debris and liquid stains. Mopping can be done at the end of the business day or periodically throughout the day. A Wet Floor sign should be placed to warn customers about slip hazards. Employees should wipe down toilet surfaces and sinks with disinfectant. To avoid transferring bacteria from one place to another, it's best to use a different cloth for each surface. Some facilities have disinfectant mop solution to use on the floor.
Other tasks on a maintenance checklist include checking paper towels and soap dispensers. Guests need to be able to wash and dry their hands. Toilet paper should be treated similarly, with regular checks to ensure it is full, because it is the most important amenity in a restroom. After cleaning, the employee usually marks the time that the check was completed and who should check the restroom next.
