Santoemma RESTROOM Cleaning and Sanitizing Program

Cleaning and sanitizing of public restrooms is a serious problem worldwide, which has not found yet an optimal solution. Cleaning means removing the visible dirt from all surfaces, while sanitizing means removing not only visible dirt, but also invisible elements like bacteria, which can be responsible for disease transmission. This means that even after cleaning, a truly clean washroom should be periodically sanitized.


Santoemma RESTROOM Cleaning and Sanitizing Program provides innovative and patented systems for cleaning and sanitizing public restrooms of any type and size. By using specially designed machines, instead of manual work only, restrooms are completely cleaned and sanitized in a short time, with excellent and granted results.  It is finally possible to reach a higher level in restroom’s hygiene, increase productivity and have a higher fulfilment of the cleaning operators.
