Every commercial business has at least one washroom on its premises, whether it’s used specifically for employees or has extended use for clients, visitors, and customers. Regardless of how many washrooms your establishment has, it is your utmost responsibility to ensure they are sanitary, clean, and hygienic every day. However, when running a busy or successful business, this may be the last thing on your mind.
Simply by having clean and hygienic washrooms, you can minimize staff absenteeism by preventing the spread of bacteria and viruses, increase profit, and improve productivity. There are many other benefits your commercial business can take advantage of when you provide hygienic and inclusive washrooms, including:
Citron Hygiene has a wide range of comprehensive washroom solutions which are designed to keep your workforce safe and enhance the washroom experience for all users. This includes menstrual hygiene disposal units, period product dispensers, air care & air purifiers, and solutions to implement proper hand hygiene. We pride ourselves on delivering reliable, on-time service, ensuring you never have to chase your washroom service provider to carry out the service they have promised!
Did you know that 90% of customers would judge an operator simply by the quality and cleanliness of their washroom, with 94% of customers who would never return if its washrooms had poor hygiene levels? Thus, not only is a clean and hygienic washroom important in protecting your staff and visitors from harmful germs or bacteria, but it also plays a critical role in the overall customer and employee experience. You can take it a step further, making washrooms more inclusive by providing free-vend period products and within the stall, touch-free menstrual hygiene disposal solutions. In turn, this can help improve employee retention and demonstrate a higher level of commitment to employee or customer well-being.
Employers have a responsibility to ensure their staff and customers are cared for, this includes providing hygienic means for menstrual hygiene disposal to prevent cross-contamination from blood-borne pathogens. Citron Hygiene provides a range of touch-free menstrual hygiene disposal units, which are serviced with a natural antimicrobial solution that protects operators and end users not only from bacteria but against odours. All waste will be collected and disposed of by our Citron Hygiene Certified Technicians on a servicing frequency that fits your needs.
The first thing people typically notice when entering your washroom is not what they can see, but rather it’s what they can smell. Foul-smelling washrooms are enough to turn away potential customers or employees, sometimes for life. Bad smell in a washroom is often associated with a lack of cleanliness and gives people a terrible user experience. Citron Hygiene has effective air care solutions, including air fresheners and air purifiers, that help to eliminate those lingering malodours and freshen up the washroom, additionally even removing airborne germs.
Did you know that wet or damp hands spread more bacteria than dry hands? If your washroom isn’t providing adequate hand drying solutions, then all your washroom users have an increased chance of spreading germs throughout your commercial building and into the wider community. A big part of proper hand hygiene also includes properly drying your hands too. Citron Hygiene provides innovative drying technology that dries quickly, is energy efficient, bacteria reducing, and can help decrease your business’ utility bills. We also carry a wide range of paper towel dispensers with various qualities of paper.
Free toilet paper, soap, and paper towels are provided in every washroom, so menstrual care products should not be treated any differently. Menstrual hygiene products are not a luxury, they’re a necessity. If a member of your staff gets caught short and is without any access to period products, it can be disruptive to their productivity and their well-being. Your commercial business can make one small change to make a big impact by providing free period products in the workplace. Citron Hygiene has proudly partnered with Aunt Flow to help commercial businesses like yours provide free, 100% organic cotton, sustainable menstrual hygiene products to staff and visitors. Not only will this make your commercial workplace more inclusive and reduce absenteeism, but it also displays a higher level of care towards anyone who uses your washrooms.
One of the main causes of the spread of germs, colds, and flu is a lack of proper hand hygiene. Provide your staff and visitors with hand soap and hand sanitizer dispensers to encourage and promote good hygiene practices within your commercial building. By minimizing the spread of germs and bacteria, you protect your staff and customers from getting sick while at the same time decreasing absenteeism. Citron Hygiene will provide your business with fully serviced hand hygiene solutions that target 80% or more of cold and flu germs spread by hand contact. We also carry a wide range of touch-free dispensers, giving the added benefit of less contact points, lowering the risk of cross-contamination.
Maintenance costs can add up very quickly for a commercial business, so don’t let your washroom affect your bottom line. Citron Hygiene’s range of innovative urinal and toilet hygiene solutions can save you money on potential maintenance costs as well as ensures your washroom users a better user experience. EcoClean, our specially formulated and proprietary urinal and toilet treatment, interrupts the scale formation and controls the growth of bacteria that causes malodours, leaving behind a fresh scent.
