Remove, Improve, Protect in Washrooms 

Washrooms and toilets in public areas are high risk areas, even referred to as bio-waste transfer stations due to the number of pathogens present and how easily they can be transferred from fittings to humans and from humans to humans. Traditional cleaning has the operative touching toilets and often mopping floors, which moves dirt around rather than removing it. That's where the remove, improve, protect process comes in!


The definition of cleaning:

1. The process of REMOVING dirt of something undesirable (Collins Dictionary). This can include any unwanted substances, such as dirt, infectious agents, and other impurities, from an object or environment.
2. Cleaning should be carried out at regular intervals, usually daily, but will depend on the amount of traffic, and the amount of risk from that environment.

At Rawlins we have always been promoting the need for REMOVAL of dirt as opposed to simply moving the dirt around, which is the result of mopping and wiping.

In addition to this, with adopting regular daily cleaning, instead of relying on deep cleans, all that is necessary is the removal of today’s dirt, which is simple and quick by using the correct processes.

The very best method to clean washrooms using our ‘remove’ process is with either the Kaivac No Touch Cleaning (NTC) machine, where washrooms are waterproof, or with the Kaivac OmniFlex Washroom Cart for washrooms with water sensitive surfaces. Both methods are more dignified for the operative, faster and give superior consistent results.

Using the NTC process, all contaminants on fixtures and fittings are first loosed by the application of water and chemical and then washed to the floor. Most of the problem in a toilet is in the floor due to dirty grout lines from continual mopping. Floors are cleaned by the application of water and chemical, allowing dwell time and if necessary, agitation, then removal by our high flow fluid extraction process.

Using our High Flow Fluid Extraction process will greatly improve the cleanliness of any hard surface even the first time it is used. This improvement can be proven by taking ATP measurements before and after the cleaning process.This can be proven by taking ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) measurements before and after the 'remove' process. We find that the ATP readings after the High Flow Fluid extraction process, are on average less than 10 which would be classed as a pass in a food preparation unit.

Adenosine Triphosphate, or ATP, is the energy molecule found in all living and once-living things, making it a perfect indicator when trying to determine if a surface is clean or not. With an ATP hygiene monitoring system, ATP is brought into contact with an unique liquid-stable reagent in the test device. Light is then emitted in direct proportion to the amount of ATP present in the sample and read in the monitor, providing information on the level of contamination in seconds.

Once surfaces have been cleaned and improved, the next stage we recommend is to protect. We suggest protecting them with GermErase C19 Surface Protector which will give up- What is the difference between GermErase and your average surface disinfectant? GermErase will last for prolonged periods of time, in comparison to a normal surface disinfectant which will last up to 2 hours. Once surfaces are cleaned, we suggest protecting them with C19 Surface Protector at least every 30 days. Main touch points should be treated every seven days and the whole washroom fogged or sprayed every twenty-one days for the very best protection.

You can even provide GermErase in the washrooms, for that extra peace of mind that all visitors have safely sanitised hands throughout the day.
