Almost nowhere is cleanliness more important than in the bathroom. Dirty restrooms are not just gross; they’re a breeding ground for germs and disease.

Hiring an office cleaning and sanitation service means your employees don’t have to do the dirty work, of course. More importantly, if you hire the right service, it means the bathroom will not only look clean; it will be sanitary.

The Importance of Keeping Your Commercial Bathrooms Spotless

"Maintaining clean and hygienic restrooms should be a top priority for any business that cares about public health, employee morale, productivity, and professional reputation. Though often overlooked, dirty bathrooms breed dangerous germs, drag down morale, hamper productivity by increasing time spent away from work, and hurt your brand image. Investing in professional cleaning services pays dividends through healthier, happier, and more productive employees. When it comes to your restrooms, proper hygiene is not only a social responsibility, but smart business."

- Carlos Perez, Chief Executive Officer at Copec Enterprises Cleaning Services

A dirty restroom is off-putting to customers, clients and employees. Even seemingly minor things like a few pieces of toilet paper scattered on the floor or an overflowing garbage bin can signify that your restrooms are not properly maintained.

More than just looks, however, proper sanitation is crucial. A bathroom that is neat in appearance may not necessarily be clean. Without regular professional commercial restroom cleanings, your restrooms could be full of germs and bacteria, as well as diseases such as Influenza, Strep, respiratory illnesses, Staph and more.

The old mop and bucket approach to cleaning isn’t good enough when you’re talking about a public or high-traffic space. Proper sanitation requires the right chemicals, the right procedures and special attention to areas where germs and diseases tend to collect.

It requires periodic deep cleanings followed by daily touch-ups. Even if you hire a professional bathroom cleaning company to come in weekly, your staff should still follow a daily restroom cleaning checklist.

Customer Perspectives: Real Restroom Cleaning Service Pricing

"We hired a professional restroom cleaning service to maintain the restrooms in our small office building. We have 10 restrooms total that need cleaning 3 times per week. We were quoted $450 per month for the cleaning service, which comes out to $15 per restroom per cleaning. Overall we have found it to be worth the expense to have clean and sanitized restrooms for our employees and visitors."

- Q. Xiang, NY

"For our large office with over 100 employees, we required daily restroom cleaning services. We obtained quotes from several vendors and ended up contracting with a national cleaning company. For nightly cleaning and restocking of 20 restrooms, we pay around $2,000 per month. This allows us to provide clean restrooms throughout the workday for our staff."

- Z. Nakamura, CA

"Our manufacturing facility has 30 restrooms that employees access during shifts. We contracted with a local cleaning company that comes in to do a thorough cleaning nightly after production ends. This involves cleaning toilets, sinks, floors, mirrors, and restocking soap, paper towels, and toilet paper. We pay $1,800 per month for this daily restroom cleaning service."

- J. Singh, TX

"As a restaurant, keeping our restrooms freshly cleaned during business hours is a top priority. We hired a cleaning service that provides an attendant to clean and stock our 4 restrooms twice per day. For this level of attention and frequent cleaning, we pay around $600 per month."

- P. Martinez, FL

Typical Prices and Cost Factors

By the hour, billing rates for commercial bathroom cleaning and sanitation usually start at $50 to $60. There’s a lot of variability in pricing, though, based on your geographic location, the frequency of cleanings and the condition of the restrooms. Keep in mind that small offices may face a minimum charge for the trip.

By the job, you can expect to pay anywhere from about $25 to $50 per restroom. Budget on the high end for large restrooms.

Similarly, some companies charge by the fixture (sinks and toilets). If the price is $25 per month per fixture, that would bring the total bill to $100 a month for a bathroom with two sinks and two toilets.

As you can see, there are wide variations from one company to the next when it comes to rates and pricing structure. For that reason, it’s important to compare multiple services before you commit and ask for prices upfront.

Business Type Typical Monthly Cost Range
Small offices or retail stores $100-200 per month for 1-2 cleanings per week.
Midsize offices $300-500 per month for daily or every-other-day cleanings.
Restaurants $400-800+ per month depending on size. Daily cleanings are a must for health codes.
Large office buildings, hotels, etc Could be $2,000+ per month for multiple daily cleanings, deep cleanings, using industrial equipment, servicing many floors/bathrooms, etc. Price varies based on square footage.
Stadiums/arenas Tens of thousands per year. Very frequent cleanings needed for high traffic. More staff and equipment needed to cover large areas.
Hospitals $30,000-$50,000+ per year. Critical sanitization required. Cleaning done 24/7 with multiple daily visits to all bathrooms. Strict protocols must be followed.

Restroom Cleaning Checklist

Choosing a Reputable Restroom Cleaning Service

You might not have any idea what separates one commercial cleaning and sanitation service from another, and that’s OK. But there are steps you should take and questions you should ask to make sure the company is reputable:

  • Ask for referrals if you’re not sure where to start. Talk to other companies about who they use and why. Before you hire a company, do some research on their background and reputation. Check the Better Business Bureau and, if you’re a member, services like Angie’s List.
  • Ask the company for a detailed description of their cleaning procedures. What kind of chemicals or germicides do they use? Does the cleaning staff have a commercial bathroom cleaning checklist they must complete during every visit? Does the cleaning involve only sanitation, or does it include paper refills and trash service? Do they keep up to date with advanced restroom cleaning techniques?
  • Make sure the company is bonded and insured. Any reputable office restroom cleaning service should be. If you hire one that is not, your business could be liable for any accidents that occur during the cleaning.
  • Ask if the company is certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification.
  • Ask for a written contract that outlines - in detail - the scope of work, the frequency of visits and the agreed upon price. Check out this sample commercial cleaning contract.
