When it Comes to C-Store Sanitation, You Just Can’t Stall
C-store customers expect fully stocked shelves and a great shopping experience. But that’s not all. They also expect c-stores to be flush with clean restrooms. They’ll avoid c-stores whose restrooms aren’t sanitary, potentially sending sales down the drain. In fact, if a consumer who stops for gas and to use the restroom sees that that restroom is dirty or unkempt, she probably won’t buy anything and may never come back.
While having clean, sanitary restrooms has always been important for c-stores, protecting customers and employees against germs and bacteria is more critical than ever in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Assigning employees to nightly mopping and casual cleaning duties isn’t enough: they have other tasks to attend to — and cleaning just isn’t their core competency.
But hygiene as a service, provided by a company like Enviro-Master Services, lets c-store operators deliver on customers’ clean restroom expectations by acting as an extension of their team and bridging the labor gap.

Down and dirty: more than restroom hygiene

Tile & Grout Deep Cleaning Service
Electrostatic Spraying Service
The visible dirt in a restroom is bad enough—but there’s more. Commercial restrooms are the epicenter for infectious diseases, germs, bacteria, and viruses. Billions of pathogens can live on and inside restroom fixtures at any one time—and even if restroom surfaces appear clean, they can still be harboring harmful germs and bacteria.

SPRAYING THE WAY TO SANITARY
A simple toilet flush can propel millions of water particles up to 20 feet into the air—and with them come dangerous bacteria and viruses.
Enviro-Master’s Restroom & Hygiene Service reverses the tide, kicking restroom sanitization into high gear.
Going down deep
Each week, certified health and safety technicians visit c-stores’ restrooms to conduct a deep cleaning that involves:
Removing uric scale and other soils that provide a food source for odor-causing bacteria
Coating all fixtures with an electrostatic spraying of a hospital-grade germicide to help fight germs and bacteria
Decreasing the level of dangerous bacteria present in c-stores’ restroom facilities
Helping to ensure that restrooms always look pristine, while simultaneously slashing the risk of customers and staff becoming ill from contact with bacteria
All products used by Enviro-Master’s health and safety technicians have been scientifically proven to be extremely effective at:
Reduction in bacteria and viruses that not only better serves customers, but also decreases employee absenteeism due to illness
Minimized unpleasant odors, for cleaner, more pristine facilities
Complimentary weekly refills of hand soap and soap dispensers
Complimentary air care products and maintenance
Elimination of additional janitorial supplies

DIGGING UP DIRT — GERMS, TOO
Think a restroom’s floors and walls can’t possibly be as dirty and germy as its toilets? Think again.
Beyond the ‘business’
Visitors to c-store restrooms do more than their “business” there. They also bring big colonies of bacteria—simply by stepping on restroom floors.
Tile & Grout Deep Cleaning Service
Shoes carry an average of 421,000 different types of bacteria, potentially making tile flooring a giant breeding ground for harmful germs.
Goodbye germs, grease, and grime
Eliminates dirt, grime, and soil
Removes hazardous grease, reducing the risk that customers and staff will slip and fall
Targets odor-causing agents to quash odors that may be coming from tile floors
Leaves c-stores’ floors with a protective barrier—as well as entirely clean and free of mold, mildew, and other harmful substances.
Regular mopping and cleaning won’t work on tile restroom flooring. Under the umbrella of its Tile & Grout Deep Cleaning Service, Enviro-Master’s health and safety technicians use specialized equipment with commercial-grade extractors and low water pressure to safely scrub tile surfaces. Leveraging whichever of the company’s industrial tile and grout cleaning products are best suited for the commercial tile in each c-store’s facility, this non-corrosive, non-toxic process:
Grout is porous and absorbs dirt, grime, and germs. This makes cleaning it a particularly difficult task that also can’t be effectively accomplished with “regular” scrubbing and solutions. The Tile & Grout Deep Cleaning Service also features a grout cleaning process that’s specially designed to:
Getting in line(s)
Remove buildup from grout as well as from tiles
Fight harmful bacteria that use grout lines as their home to reproduce and multiply
Leave grout dirt-, germ-, grime-, and grease-free
Restore grout to its original color.
Before and After
Toilet paper and paper towels are must-haves for c-store restrooms. But managing paper products isn’t easy.
Basic items, big challenges
Excessive waste, dwindling stock, and faulty dispensers can clog up the paper product management works, costing c-store operators time and money. And broken dispensers are a customer turnoff, making even a clean restroom look unsightly and unkempt.
Paper Management Program
ENDING THE PAPER CHASE
With Enviro-Master’s Paper Management Program, highly trained, certified health and safety technicians visit each facility weekly to service its dispensers, ensuring that they are maintained and in proper working order. Choose from a wide variety of specially designed paper dispensing equipment that minimizes or eliminates product usage, pilferage, and waste.
Waste? What waste?
From paper towels and toilet paper to sterile wipes, Enviro-Master also offers a broad range of paper products to meet the requirements of every c-store and its customers. The Enviro-Master Paper Management Program team keeps restroom facilities stocked, so c-store owners, managers, and employees can continue working.

“In order to maintain a properly clean restaurant, a business must have the staff and knowledge base to understand what is deemed ‘clean’ by the Food Code and the general public’s perception. Enviro-Master possesses both of those traits…(and) provides services that take a core competency off the restaurant manager’s plate and puts it in the hands of professionals. Enviro-Master gives us in the food safety and risk management sectors the ability to rest easy knowing our bathrooms are cleaned beyond the bare minimum standards.”

Many, if not most c-stores currently struggle with labor shortages. With Enviro-Master on the job, labor is less of an issue. Instead of straining staff resources by assigning employees to handle restroom sanitation and maintenance tasks, operators can leave the hard work to our expert teams. And this doesn’t just alleviate labor shortages on the cleaning front. It also increases the pool of employees c-store operators can assign to other critical functions, from assisting customers, to merchandising and in between.
