We sometimes neglect to clean our windows because we focus more on the interior. However, when it comes to cleaning your windows, a professional cleaning service can do wonders. A professional window washing company can improve the aesthetics of your building and its overall appeal.
 
Window Washing is Not Easy
 
Window washing can be tough given the positioning of some of your windows, especially for taller buildings. Some of these windows can be really hard to reach. So instead of procrastinating or only cleaning some of your windows, it may be a better idea to hire a professional service to do a thorough cleaning of all your windows. They can remove all window fixtures and clean both inside and outside.
 
Clean Windows Last Longer
 
Just like anything else, when you regularly clean your windows, it extends their life. For instance, when you remove contaminants, it improves the window lifespan. Moreover, window screens can deteriorate over time and cause more problems in the long run if not cleaned regularly. A professional cleaning company will know which cleaners to use to make your windows shine and last longer. Some cleaning supplies can damage the window glass, and a professional cleaning company will take extra precaution to protect your windows.
 
Proper Window Washing Will Keep Bugs Away
 
You can prevent any bug problems from getting worse by keeping your windows clean. If your windows are not clean, it can attract bees and hornets to build their nests behind window shutters. A professional cleaning job on your windows will help you see some of these problem areas and keep the bugs away.
 
Professional Cleaners Can Spot Problems
 
Another benefit of hiring a professional service to clean your windows is that sometimes there can be small problems with your windows that you cannot spot yourself. A professional cleaning company can detect issues, such as window screens not fitting properly or wood rot. If you identify these problems early on, you will have to spend less money trying to fix them than later when there is more damage to your windows. If you have been worried about certain spots that won’t go away, a professional cleaning company can help clean them and explain how to avoid them in the future.

There is a lot of competition among various fitness centers and maintaining a clean gym keeps you ahead of that competition. It is crucial to maintain the workout areas, bathrooms, and your gym equipment. Consider all the bacteria and sweat that gets accumulated in all the shared areas and surfaces. It is not enough to do a quick cleaning. Instead, a professional cleaning is a must, given the amount of traffic that you experience in a fitness center.
 
Good Hygiene is Crucial
 
People join the fitness center to get healthier. However, if you don’t clean the gym regularly, bacteria and viruses may make the environment unhealthy. Since many people share your fitness equipment, they may leave behind dirt, bacteria, and sweat after finishing their workout. Fitness center cleaning is required on a regular basis so that these germs don’t grow and cause health problems for your staff and customers.
 
Keep Bathrooms Clean
 
A lot of people use the gym in the morning and head to work after taking a shower. Moreover, most customers will use changing rooms and showers after their workout. Therefore, these areas require extra precaution in preventing health problems. Proper hygiene and professional cleaning will help prevent any issues. Hire a professional service that uses environmentally-friendly cleaning supplies and scrubs the germs out of your showers and changing rooms.
 
Take Extra Care of Moist Areas
 
A lot of germs are found in moist areas. With so many customers using your fitness center along with showers and other facilities, there is bound to be a lot of sweat and resulting germs. If you have a swimming pool, it is even more important to avoid any accumulation of moisture. You also need to pay attention to classes where the participants tend to sweat a lot and ensure that these areas don’t remain damp for a long time. These damp areas become a breeding ground for germs and viruses. People can develop skin conditions if exposed to such germs. Professional cleaning will help you take all the necessary preventative measures to keep your facility clean and healthy.
 
 
 
Make a Good Impression
 
A professionally-cleaned fitness center also makes a good impression on prospective customers when they come in to check your facility out. Gym owners need to realize that cleanliness is a key selling point. A clean facility helps you maintain your current set of customers and they can even invite their friends to join. Therefore, you can benefit from word of mouth publicity as well.

Carpets provide a plush and comfortable living space, but they also gather dirt and pollutants from your surroundings and pets. Clean carpets are healthier and can make your home more welcoming. Because of this, it is very important to get your carpets cleaned regularly by professionals. A general rule is to get your carpets professionally cleaned once a year. However, several factors determine the right frequency for your carpet cleaning.
 
For Longevity
 
Vacuuming is good for weekly maintenance, but your carpets need a deeper cleaning by professionals to maintain their longevity. Removing dust particles isn't the only reason for carpet cleaning. Dirt can also degrade your carpet fibers over time and cause damage. You should keep this in mind, especially if you have invested in a high-quality carpet in your home. You will need to get your carpets cleaned often enough so that you can ensure their long life and durability. Read the warranty papers and follow a routine that works best for your living situation and your carpet specifications.
 
For Look and Feel
 
The best way to keep your carpet looking great is to get it cleaned regularly. Some factors to consider when figuring out the frequency of carpet cleaning include having pets, allergies, smokers in the house and how many people are living in your home. If you have a small family and have no pets or young children, your carpets may not need frequent cleaning. A simple weekly vacuum and yearly professional clean may be sufficient. However, for high-traffic households with pets, children, or smokers, it is a completely different story.
 
For Cleaning Stains
 
If you have any occasional spills or stains, your carpets should be professionally cleaned right away in order to reduce the damage. If your carpet gets more frequent stains because of your living conditions or size of your family, you can even get a stain- resistant carpet for durability. Taking care of your carpet and keeping it clean will also be healthier for your family.
 
Clean carpets protect you from unhealthy bacteria, which can lead to allergies. They also increase the beauty of your home. Eagle Janitorial Services has been in the floor care and carpet cleaning business for 15 years. Our professional cleaners have been trained with high-quality equipment and take pride in customer satisfaction. We always strive to use safe and environment-friendly products in our services.

preview-full-hard-surface.jpg           A clean and shiny floor creates an eye-catching impression, especially in the front of your home. Therefore, along with looking great, hard surface floor care is a necessity for the front of your home. Your investment in your hard surface floor is worth maintaining professionally. Hard surface floor care also becomes important because these floors can show dirt more than other surfaces.
 
Proactive Hard Surface Floor Care is the Best
 
Dust and debris can easily blemish the appearance of your hard surface floors. Moreover, if not taken care of professionally, hard surface floors can become quite expensive to repair. That’s why it’s so essential to have a plan in place for maintaining your hard surface floors. Additionally, preventative care will save you time and money down the road.
 
Use Cleaners Cautiously
 
You need to be cautious with cleaners since not all cleaners and floor types are compatible. You also don’t want to use any cleaning solutions that could impact your floor in the long term. This could even affect the warranty of your floor material. Therefore, testing a cleaning solution before use is a smart idea. This is why professional care is so important since professionals understand different surfaces and what works best on which hard surface floors.
 
Deep Clean Regularly
 
You also want to make sure that your cleaning plan includes regular deep cleaning of your hard surface floors. Depending on how much the floor is being used and the weather conditions in your area, you can schedule as many deep cleaning sessions as needed and maintain your floors while keeping the shine. A professional deep cleaning session will remove stubborn dirt and obnoxious stains and clean the surface from below.
 
Take Care of the Grout
 
Grout can make or break the appearance of your floor since dirt can easily accumulate in grout and discolor it. Therefore, the grouts of your hard surface floors need to be taken care of on a regular basis. A thorough and effective grout cleaning will make your floors look extra clean and shiny. If you have tiled surface with grout, your cleaning plan should include additional care around the grouted areas.
 
At Eagle Janitorial Services, no matter the style or material of your hard surface floor, we provide an effective cleaning plan that will fit your needs. We take extra precautions while cleaning because we understand different surfaces better. With our customized cleaning solutions and schedule, we will deliver a unique cleaning plan that will ensure the long-term protection of your floor.

When it comes to cleaning, most homeowners chose to go it alone. However, there are some cleaning tasks that you should leave to the professionals, such as pressure washing and window washing. Whether you are planning to clean your home or office environment, professionals are more experienced and better equipped. For this reason, they can perform a thorough job and offer ongoing maintenance services. It’s not only essential to know what to pressure wash, but also to be aware of surfaces that shouldn’t be pressure washed because of potential damage.
 
Using Adequate Pressure is Important
 
The biggest mistake you can make while pressure cleaning is applying too much pressure. Many homeowners find that it is easy to underestimate the force of the water coming out of the nozzle. When the water pressure is too high, it can damage carved wood or break windows. How much pressure to use and how far should you be from the object you are cleaning are some of the factors that professionals specialize in handling.
 
Protect Yourself and the Surroundings
 
When pressure cleaning, it matters what you are using to clean a particular surface. For instance, the cleanser you use can also impact the pressure and damage may occur if not chosen carefully. While pressure cleaning, it is also important to be aware of the surrounding surfaces and make sure that you protect them accordingly, whether they are delicate surfaces or surrounding plants. To protect yourself and your surroundings, hiring a professional for thorough cleaning is undoubtedly recommended.
 
Protect Your Home Exterior
 
Your home may have accumulated dirt and debris over the years. While pressure cleaning can improve the appearance of your home exterior, it is also important to be careful while doing it. Too much pressure can easily damage your home exterior, windows, and their seals. A strong water stream from a pressure washer can potentially break window glass and even cause water damage inside your home. You need to be aware which areas are waterproof and how much pressure they can handle. Hiring an experienced professional to do the job is a great idea.
 
At Eagle Janitorial Services, we focus on details and promise to keep your environment perfectly clean so you can focus on conducting your business better. We take extra precautions while cleaning because we understand different fixtures and surfaces better and adjust the pressure accordingly.

Every workplace has a different approach to cleanliness, but everyone needs some kind of janitorial plan. Trashcans have to be emptied and the floors mopped or vacuumed just to keep an office livable. This is normally done by hiring janitorial staff or a cleaning service to take care of things during off-hours.
However, some employers decide that they can simply rely on their regular staff to keep the office clean. In some ways, this is true, but there are also a few notable hallmarks of an office maintained just by the staff. A lingering sticky spot on the break room floor, bathrooms that are never properly stocked with essentials, and secret caches of grit hidden in the corners. In other words, shared staff janitorial duties always fall short. Wondering why your staff can be experts in their field and terrible janitors? Here's why:
 

1. Only a Few Specific Tasks are Done

When people are asked to 'keep their workspace clean', they decide personally what that means. Some will simply sweep their cookie crumbs onto the floor while others will start polishing and vacuuming around their personal desk areas. Usually, employees think of personal janitorial duties as emptying their trash cans and cleaning up their own spills.
But whatever an employee decides is their duties, that is what they will do every day with little to no variance or worry about cleanliness outside their personal workspace.
 

2. Shared Spaces are Always Dirty

This means that shared spaces will always be dirty. Most of us have worked somewhere with a break room that is eternally sticky, or a copy room with dust bunnies the size of movie monsters. Some people will flat-out refuse to ever take responsibility for shared areas. Those that do clean won't want to do so all the time. No one wants to clean and restock the bathroom. This will ultimately result in less-than-clean shared spaces that become a point of contention between the staff.
 

3. No One is Responsible for Maintenance

While your staff may be alright emptying their own trashcans, no one will feel responsible for maintenance. Even bathroom cleaning is beyond the pale for additional janitorial duties. Not a single employee is going to accept being asked to keep the vents and ducts clean, handle minor plumbing issues, or tighten door hinges. These are things janitorial services take care of smoothly but regular staff will not consider reasonable to ask of them.
 

4. Deep Cleaning Never Happens

Then, of course, there's deep cleaning. Most buildings benefit from a deep and thorough cleaning about twice a year. Scrubbing the walls and baseboards, replacing weather stripping, and steam-cleaning the carpets are among the basic steps of a semi-annual deep cleaning. Staff assigned to keeping their workspaces clean will not take on this sort of task and eventually the building will get grimy in ways that no one is prepared to handle.
 

5. Everyone Wants to Get Home

And the final reason why staff janitorial duties always fall short is that everyone just wants to get home. One or two small tasks to keep the workspace clean are acceptable, but regular staff simply aren't going to dedicate themselves to extra cleaning duties. Even those who believe in good cleaning practices are going to rush and put off anything challenging because they just want to pack up and go home at the end of the day.
 
Asking your staff to keep their workspaces clean is a great way to promote a pristine facility. But giving your staff extra duties is no replacement for a professional janitorial team. Your building is much more than a collection of individual workspaces. Take care of your building and improve staff efficiency by relying on experts for your janitorial needs.

If your building has a cafeteria, you know how important it is to keep food-handling areas clean. The Center for Disease Control estimates that 48 million people get sick from food-borne pathogens every year, which makes eating areas critical for controlling diseases. This spread of infection can happen even if most of the food preparation is actually done off-site as people will still be handling food a lot in that room. Since sick people don't perform their best at their jobs, the owners of your building rely on your ability to keep the cafeteria clean in order to keep their workforce at its peak. If you feel a little overwhelmed with that revelation, it is ok. You can break down the process and tackle it with ease if you remember the following things.
 

How Often Does It Need Cleaning 


Cafeterias and other food handling areas have different components that need cleaning according to different schedules. Some things require daily attendance, while other things can be dealt with less frequently. Let's break it down:
 
Daily:
  • Clean food prep surfaces and equipment such as cutting boards and beverage dispensers.
  • Clean and sanitize table and countertops along with condiment containers.
  • Clean cloths such as towels, rags, aprons, uniforms, and cloth napkins.
  • Clean sinks.
  • Empty and clean trash receptacles.
  • Wash utensils (the cafeteria staff may be in charge of this part.)
  • Mop and sweep the floor. Vacuum carpets.
  • Clean the buffet line, including the sneeze guard.
  • Clean and change the lining of the grill if you have one.
Weekly:
  • Clean anti-fatigue mats.
  • Clean heating elements such as ovens.
  • Clean food storage areas such as walk-in refrigerators.
Monthly:
  • Dust decorations and check for cobwebs in the eating area.
  • Run vinegar through the coffee maker.
  • Empty grease traps and clean vent hoods if you have either.
  • Clean the freezer and ice machine.
  • Check for pests.
As Needed:
  • Wipe down walls and splash guards.

Keeping The Cleaning Products Safe
 

It is important to use the correct cleaning products as they were intended to be used, especially when it comes to food preparation areas. The last thing you want is for the sanitizer to cease working or for the cleaning product to get in the food. Definitely read the directions before using anything. Restaurant.org recommends reviewing your cleaners to make sure the ones you use are stable, non-corrosive, and safe. Remember that sanitizers can lose their power if they are used incorrectly and that if you are using heat to sanitize things, the water must be at least 171 degrees Fahrenheit. 
 

Special Considerations
 

It may be best to outsource the care of your cafeteria to cleaning professionals. For one thing, the company that you choose will keep the cleaning supplies with them so that there is no danger of cafeteria workers accidentally dumping cleaner in the food. They will also be well-versed in how to use the products to their maximum advantage. Arranging for them to come in daily may be ideal, but a good company will work with whatever schedule that you feel comfortable with.
 
As a building superintendent, you may find it best to delegate some of the cleaning operations to the cafeteria staff. You will have to communicate with them to find out what you need to do and when it is most convenient for everyone to do it. That way, everything is ready for employees and guests all the time.
 
All this may feel labor-intensive and intimidating. Fortunately, you have help in keeping your cafeteria clean with Eagle Janitorial. We would love to share our expertise with all building superintendents, so please feel free to contact us to find out more about keeping your building spic and span.

Being a building superintendent is never an easy job considering you're solely responsible for all the maintenance that goes in the premises. While a well-paying job, you know how important quality cleaning services are as part of the maintenance involved. Providing this for a commercial building is all the more essential so customers always find clean and suitable surroundings. If you're still new to the role of a building superintendent, what things do you need to know about to stay successful? Here's some to consider, plus how to find the right cleaning service company.
 
Delegating Repair Tasks
 
One of the most challenging duties of this job is to delegate daily tasks to all maintenance crew. You'll have to make sure the building you're responsible for always has proper repairs done, including being presentable. When you have a large building, this obviously isn't easy. Staying compliant to company standards and fulfilling business ordinances requires keeping up on the latest changes if any occur. Just one slip-up could fall on your shoulders and lead to fines for the company. It's all the more reason to find a reliable cleaning service. Since they'll be responsible for cleaning every floor in the building, you'll want assurance they have proper experience and equipment.
 
Working with Contractors for Larger Projects
 
Sometimes larger maintenance or cleaning projects need doing in your building. You should expect to work with contractors once in a while to manage these tasks. In some cases, these are renovations for expansion purposes. Maybe a special cleaning project is needed after an on-site accident or natural disaster. Again, you'll want someone dependable with the best cleaning equipment to get the job done right the first time.
 
Scheduling Building Worker Shifts
 
Working out the schedules of when maintenance and cleaning crews work can become equally complicated. It's especially difficult if some parts of the building are in use 24 hours on normal work days. Maintenance can become problematic around employees if it takes place during normal work hours. We all know it's never fun to hear drills or hammering going on while trying to work, which makes your job all the more important. Finding times for these things to get done without interference will show your skills as a superintendent. For cleaning, it's perhaps a little easier if done in the overnight hours. It's all the more reason to hire a cleaning company with scheduling flexibility.
 
Keeping Maintenance Costs Within Budget
 
Even more essential in the building superintendent role is maintaining a reasonable budget while still getting things done. Maintenance is often expensive, and so is cleaning if hiring the wrong company. Take some time to vet the cleaning company you bring in to see what they charge. It's still possible to find quality cleaning services without having to pay a fortune. For maintenance, you may need to place only mandatory projects at the top of the list if working on a limited budget.
 
Identifying Problems in the Building
 
Another major part of your job is to become familiar with the blueprint of the building. Identifying problems inside and knowing where those problems are helps your maintenance crew fix things faster. The best way to do this, is to live on-site, since building superintendents are often on call to address maintenance issues. Sometimes it means having to call in a cleaning crew for an emergency cleanup. For building emergencies, these are the realities of your job, but the workers you hire matter in the response.

There is a lot on your plate if you manage an office building, but keeping restrooms clean and functional are among the most important of all maintenance tasks. Workers and visitors in your building may overlook other minor cosmetic problems, such as an occasional smudged window; however, a dirty or out-of-order restroom will quickly lead to irritation.
That's why you should make restroom maintenance a priority as a building manager. Doing so requires a strategic approach and understanding of what it takes to keep restrooms in tip-top shape. Below are a few ideas that will help you provide top-notch restroom facilities for employees and guests alike.
Understand Important Restroom Comfort and Convenience Factors
An office building restroom can be a challenging space to manage. The typical restroom, especially one in a facility that serves a diverse group of employees and members of the public, experiences heavy traffic volumes. That factor alone makes them vulnerable to becoming dirty or damaged.
However, when you add in the presence of water, bodily wastes, as well as paper trash and other soiled materials, restrooms can quickly become filthy, uninviting spaces. Restroom users demand that facilities be kept in a certain condition, or they will refuse to use them. This could be more than an inconvenience to users, as dirty or unavailable restrooms can hurt the bottom line of your business and the business of tenants and other building stakeholders.
To make restrooms inviting to users, there are a few, key conditions that should be provided by building managers:
  • Clean - A restroom should be kept clean from top-to-bottom, with special emphasis placed on plumbing fixtures, the floor, and counter spaces. Porcelain should sparkle, and trash containers should never overflow. In addition, floors must not only be kept clean but dry, since wet surfaces pose slipping hazards and are also a major turn-off to people who are forced to walk across them.
  • Well-Supplied - A restroom should be kept well-supplied with necessary amenities, such as toilet tissue, paper towels, and hand soap. A failure to provide any of these things sends an unintended message of neglect and could even threaten the health of users forced to do without.
  • Operational - A restroom must be operational to be inviting. For example, both cold water and hot water should be available at sinks. Broken towel dispensers, missing toilet tissue roll holders, and defective faucet aerators that splash or spray are just a few operational problems that can make a restroom uncomfortable and frustrating to use.
Implement A Strategic Maintenance Plan
To make restroom maintenance everything it needs to be, there are multiple levels of attention that need to be provided on an ongoing basis. It isn't practical to fully clean each restroom on an hourly basis, but you can provide a superb restroom "experience" by layering necessary maintenance and care. Here are some specific ways to accomplish this from a strategic perspective.
Ongoing Cleaning
Restrooms should be monitored on at least an hourly basis by a designated person or group of persons. While assigned individuals aren't to be tasked with deep cleaning activities, they should have a checklist of critical maintenance concerns to be addressed.
For example, restrooms should be checked for adequate supplies of toilet tissue, paper towel, and soap at regular intervals, and assigned personnel should be able to quickly refill any missing items. In addition, assigned staff should have access to supplies needed for cleaning unsightly messes or spills and wiping down surfaces as needed. 
Daily Cleaning
At the end of the day, or whenever the restroom experiences a natural "downturn" in usage, it will need to be cleaned on a deeper level than what can be accommodated during hourly maintenance checks. Such cleanings are often assigned to a cleaning contractor or other janitorial specialists.
The specifics of these deep cleaning sessions may vary somewhat depending on your specific facility requirements, but, in general, they comprise mopping floors, scrubbing toilets and urinals, cleaning and wiping counters, sinks, and fixtures, and removing trash. In addition, all functional restroom items should be tested for proper operation and the appropriate maintenance personnel contacted if something is broken.
Weekly Cleaning
Once per week, restrooms should be given extra cleaning attention beyond what can be performed on a daily basis. These cleaning sessions are meant to prevent the long-term decline of a restroom's functionality and overall cleanliness.
For example, a weekly cleaning session could include wiping down of stall walls, dusting, cobweb removal and light fixture cleaning. In addition, you may need to incorporate a floor scrubbing regimen that uses mechanical cleaning to remove stubborn, ground-in dirt or stains, particularly if your restroom contains grouted tile.

Bathrooms are among the most important areas to clean thoroughly both for hygienic reasons and because bathroom cleanliness is a major source of the overall impression of the cleanliness of a building. Whether the bathroom is going to be used by customers, employees, or visitors, this is a site where cleanliness will be expected, and a lack of cleanliness will definitely show. 
In order to systematically clean a bathroom, you'll need to break the task down into separate sections. Doing these steps in the proper order will ensure that you do not cross-contaminate areas that are likely to be particularly germ-infested with areas you have already cleaned. Wearing latex gloves during cleaning is the best practice to ensure that you keep your hands germ-free. If the gloves become wet or dirty, change them.

Step 1: Pour Cleaner in Toilets/Bathtubs/Showers

The spaces that need the most attention in a bathroom are the ones that are used the most, so start by pouring cleaning solution in the toilets, bathtubs, and showers. For best results, use a thick, gel-like cleaner that is specifically designed for this purpose and that has anti-bacterial properties. Once you have poured the solution into the spaces (paying careful attention to edges), let it sit while you move on to other portions of the bathroom. 

Step 2: Dry Wipe Surfaces

Bathrooms can collect dust in corners, on light fixtures, and on top of surfaces such as the back of a toilet seat or across the top of mirrors. Using a microfiber cloth or duster with an extendable handle (if the bathroom has high ceilings), wipe down all of these surfaces to remove dust. 

Step 3: Spray Wipe Surfaces

Start with the basic surfaces that are not directly used by bathroom guests. It's important to thoroughly wipe down every surface of a bathroom because the water spray from flushing toilets and the splashes from sinks can spread germs even when the surfaces were not directly touched. Spray an all-purpose cleaning solution from a spray bottle with anti-bacterial properties directly onto tiled walls or spray a microfiber cloth until it is damp to wipe down other surfaces. 
Once you have used the cloth on all of the indirect surfaces, move on to surfaces that guests were likely to have touched. Wipe down the top of the sink, the sink handles, the top of the toilet tank, the toilet flush lever, the light switch, and the door handle. 
With a new cloth, wipe down the inside of the sink, paying careful attention to remove any build-up from around the drain. 

Step 4: Clean Mirrors

Using a glass surface cleaner and a fresh microfiber cloth to clean the mirror. Wipe in small circular motions and be sure to avoid any streaks. 

Step 5: Clean the Tub/Shower

Using a sponge or scrub brush, clean the tub or shower area where the cleaning solution has been sitting. Pay careful attention to corners where build-up can occur. Wipe off any excess cleaning solution with a microfiber cloth. 

Step 6: Clean the Toilet

Using a toilet brush, scrub the toilet where the cleaning solution has been sitting. Be sure to get under the lip of the inside of the toilet. Once you have thoroughly wiped the interior, flush the toilet and inspect it to make sure that it is completely clean. Move on to the lid and seat of the toilet. Using an anti-bacterial spray and a clean microfiber cloth, wipe down these surfaces starting with the exterior of the lid, moving to the interior of the lid. Then do the top side of the seat followed by the underside of the seat. Pay careful attention to the area where the seat joins to the toilet, which is prone to build-up. 

Step 7: Sweep the Floors

Now that you have thoroughly cleaned all surfaces, you can sweep the floor to remove any debris including the dust from when you dusted earlier. 

Step 8: Discard Trash and Replace Liners

Once you discard the dirt from sweeping, remove all trash liners. If there are sanitary waste containers, be sure to remove these as well. Be sure to check under the liners for any spilled trash. If you remove trash from cans by hand, discard and change your gloves. Replace all liners. 

Step 9: Mop

Using a sanitizing mopping solution, mop the floor. Make sure that you have moved all of your materials outside of the room before you begin mopping. Place all used cleaning cloths and the toilet brush in a bucket where they will not drip on the floor. Start at the wall farthest away from the door and work backward as you move closer to the door. Once you are nearing the end of your cleaning, you can step outside the door and clean the surface where you were standing. 

Step 10: Finish Up

Turn off the light and shut the door to finish your task.
