Reducing the Spread of VIRUSES in your Washrooms

With the Secretary of State announcing that “there is a serious and imminent threat” to the British public due to the Coronavirus, there has never been a better time to ensure your washrooms are fully equipped to protect you and those who use them.

The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have shared advice on preventing the spread of Coronavirus which includes: “cleaning your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds”, “avoiding touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands” and “avoiding close contact with people who are sick”. But as an organisation, there are steps you can take to prevent viruses spreading in your washrooms.

1. Air Purifiers

Industrial Air Purifiers eliminate odours by killing bacteria, viruses, moulds and fungi in the air and on exposed surfaces. Hygenie have a fantastic range of Airsteril units which turn dirty air into “clean air”.

2. Efficient Hand Dryers

Bacteria are more easily spread via wet hands than dry ones. Hence why it’s so important to thoroughly dry your hands after washing to prevent the spread of viruses and diseases. Our range of efficient hand dryers are not only effective at drying hands, they’re also cost-effective and kinder to our environment.

3. Sanitising Products

  • We offer sanitising products that you can introduce to your washroom and key areas such as entrances to canteens/reception that can stop the spread of germs, such as:
    Toilet Seat and Office Equipment Sanitisers which kill 99.99% of bacteria found on toilet seats and can be used to ensure the bowls are cleaned with each flush. FACT “the average computer mouse is three times dirtier than a toilet seat”. For office areas we offer a surface sanitiser wipe dispenser that will remove up to 99.99% of bacteria found on surfaces.
  • Hand Sanitiser Dispensers which encourage people to keep their hands clean, in or out of the washroom.

You could also put up posters in your washrooms that display the advice the CDC has given to reduce the spread of Coronavirus.

As well as the Coronavirus, there are of course other viruses and illnesses that can be alleviated by implementing all of the aforementioned hygiene products in your washrooms (such as the flu, common colds and sickness bugs).
