Touch-free Washrooms Whitepaper
The cleanliness of a business’ washroom has a significant impact on the perceived cleanliness of the rest of the business. Inadequate hygiene strategies lead to the growth of harmful pathogens, particularly in washrooms where water droplets allow for bacteria to spread easier. However, as one of the most used spaces in a business, keeping washrooms free of harmful pathogens goes beyond just daily cleaning and extends to all types of fixtures and fittings used in the washroom. Research supports the idea that transmission of infectious diseases can be high in washrooms and therefore, steps should be taken to make sure transmission is limited. This is even more important now in light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic and will be moving forward into the future as businesses continue to adjust to the ‘new normal.’
In order to implement solutions that limit the spread of infection, we must first understand how bacteria and germs are spread in the washroom environment and the important germ hot spots to be aware of.
This whitepaper will:
