Overcoming The Invisible Enemy In Public Washrooms

Updated: Oct 5, 2021

Customers are known to avoid businesses when they encounter dirty washrooms.

Whiffy smells, dirty surfaces and toilet cubicles are enough to send your customers on their way, never to return. Business owners are often so busy with daily operations that they forget how important clean washrooms are to their customer experience.

A washroom may not be visually dirty, but there lies invisible enemies. Bacteria often resides in cracks, crevices, and other surfaces, and unless managed can cause health issues. Never have Health and Safety initiatives been so warmly welcomed by so many in this ‘Covid’ climate.

Gems Hygiene products come to the rescue by way of targeting bacteria elimination and protection. Cleaning thoroughly cannot be over emphasised in respect of both customers and staff.

There are a number of actions a business can implement to minimise bacteria and maintain healthy environments. Some useful tips are:

  1. Regular cleaning of toilets and their surrounding environment is key. Toilet 'Splash Backs 'are particularly important.

  2. Slippery floors require a thorough clean, not only to avoid accidents and remove dirt, but to minimise or eliminate associated bacteria.

  3. People often consider a washroom dirty if it's smelly. Sometimes a room can be visually clean, but can really give off whiffy smells. This may suggest that unseen bacteria are causing problems. The solution is both thorough cleaning as well as freshening products.

  4. Remember customers often check their reflection whilst washing their hands. Specific attention should therefore be paid to mirrors, as they often contain splashes of bacteria.

  5. Remember to keep soap dispensers regularly topped up.

  6. Repair any cracks and crevices, as bacteria reside everywhere, particularly in hidden places.
