Restrooms are one of those areas in your office that require an effective cleaning for many reasons. More than other spaces in your facility, the state of your restrooms can affect the overall perception not only of your workers but even your customers and visitors. Poor restroom cleaning might make them feel like you don’t care about them at all. It can then lead to employee apathy or a downshift in productivity. Poor attitudes among employees can be very contagious and create a vicious cycle. Courtesy Building Services, Inc. understands the importance of proper cleaning of restrooms.
