A commercial facility should ideally be a clean and safe environment for employees as well as visitors. Restrooms make up for a very essential part of any workplace. It is important for restrooms to be thoroughly cleaned at regular intervals. An unclean restroom doesn’t only give a terrible first impression but can also be harmful to the health of your employees and visitors.

A clean and disinfected restroom helps prevent the spread of infection-causing germs such as Salmonella, E. Coli and Norovirus. Also, when employees get sick, it can also affect their productivity and the overall company bottom line.
