Green Washroom Cleaning

When cleaning washrooms, protecting both health and the environment must be respected. Washroom cleaning needs to take into consideration the following:

Protecting Health

  • Disinfect/sanitize emphasizing touch-points
  • Minimize slip/fall hazards
  • Protect cleaning personnel and occupants
  • Minimize exposure to toxins/hazardous productsBody fluids


    • Needles
    • Waterless urinal cartridges
    • Air quality

Protect the Environment

  • Reduce material consumption
  • Use concentrated chemicals with the proper dilution technology


    • Use controlled dispensing hand towel and toilet paper dispensers
  • Use Certified green cleaning products and paper products
  • Reduce water use by installing automatic faucets, automatic flush valves on toilets and urinals
  • Reduce energy use by using motion sensor lighting
  • Reduce environmental impact of cleaning process by following proper disposal of waste water and packaging

Green Cleaning Your Washroom Should Include The Following Procedures:

  • Focus on touch/contact points. These are areas where disease transmission can occur
  • Use colour coding and special cloth folding technique to minimize cross contamination
  • Respect dwell time for disinfectants / sanitizers as indicated on product labels
  • Dilute chemicals properly as per label and training
  • Apply to minimize spray mists
  • Wear appropriate personal protective equipment
  • Dispose of all waste properly.


  • Colour coded microfibre cloths will help to prevent cross contamination.
  • Use a dedicated colour of microfibre cloth to only clean washrooms. This could be red/pink or yellow. This dedicated colour will indicate a higher risk of cross contamination
  • Change cloths sides after cleaning each new surface such as sinks, toilets, dispensers
  • Always follow the cleaning principle of starting by cleaning “clean, less contaminated” surfaces and progressively working towards dirtier or more contaminated surfaces. This prevents the potential of cross contamination
  • For large mirrors, use a squeegee. This technique uses less disposable towels and gives streak free results. Saves time too!
