A sneezing toilet? Whatever next?! The idea of a sneezing toilet is not as mad as it sounds. The “sneeze effect” is a term documented by Dr Charles Gerba after he carried out a study on what happens when a toilet is flushed. Were you aware that every time you flush a toilet an invisible cloud of dirty water and faecal bacteria is projected out of the bowl to land on nearby surfaces; which includes the toilet seat, toilet paper, seat covers, handles and floors. In fact, Dr Gerba’s research showed that the spread could be up to 8 feet away and that the bacteria could survive for up to 24 hours. His study also showed that persistent flushing did not help.
Over time and with regular usage, there is a build-up of bacteria and viruses and in a busy office environment, this can also result in the spread of illness.
Closing the toilet lid can help suppress some of the spread of germs, but even this does not guarantee keeping your washrooms 100% germ free.
What can you do to create a cleaner environment?
Pure Washroom’s Sanair Service is perfect for keeping washrooms clean, sanitized and fragranced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It automatically doses sanitizing fluid into the flush water which kills bacteria and also improves the effect of each flush, inhibiting scaling, staining and the build-up of organic waste. Sanair also omits a fragrance into the air of the toilet cubicle, creating a nice fresh smelling toilet. The Toilet Seat Sanitiser Service also provides a hygienic toilet seat treatment with a single application effectively wiping away dirt, germs and bacteria.
The best thing, however, about having Pure Washrooms’ Sanair and Toilet Seat Sanitiser Service installed in your washroom is that we will take care of everything with regular servicing, ensuring your workplace toilet is kept clean and sanitized and freshly fragranced.
