How to Maintain Public Urinals

Here at hybridH2O, we want to help you take the best possible care of your facility, and one of the most important parts of any facility is the restrooms. No matter what kind of business you run, it’s important to make a good impression on your guests, and few things make a bigger impact on a guest’s experience than the state of the restroom. Fortunately, our team specializes in urinals and urinal products, and in this article, we’ll go over the key things you need to know about how to maintain your public urinals.

  • Pre-Clean the Restroom- The bulk of effective urinal maintenance consists of cleaning, both of the urinal itself and the surrounding area. When you clean your restroom, begin by getting rid of trash–empty the garbage receptacles, and pick up any toilet paper or other debris on the floor.
  • Clean the Urinals- Once you’ve cleared away the trash, you can move on to cleaning the public urinals. Use a chemical cleaner, and make sure to follow all instructions for application. Different cleaners have different requirements for contact time in order to effectively kill germs, so make sure that you follow those guidelines and don’t rinse the cleaner away until it has done its job.
  • Clean the Surrounding Area- Lastly, it’s important to also clean and sanitize the areas around the public urinals and the rest of the bathroom. Mop the floor, wipe down the sinks and counters, and clean the mirrors. This will ensure that your whole restroom looks its best and help reduce the risk of spreading disease.
