Toilet and washroom hygiene

Our washroom solutions help enhance user experience and minimise the risk of cross-contamination throughout the facility.

One of the biggest high-risk areas for any business is the washroom. Frequently touched surfaces can become reservoirs for microorganisms and pathogens, and many potential risks arise from the recontamination of hands from contaminated surfaces.

Our innovative range of washroom hygiene products and proactive services ensure your needs are consistently met to a high standard. We take care of the essentials that keep businesses running so our customers can focus on what they do best.

We also provide On-Site Servicing which offers an eco-friendly waste disposal method. Our on-site servicing involves regular disposal and cleaning of sanitary bins in washrooms on clients' premises, ensuring clean and hygienic washrooms. We use appropriate waste management techniques and equipment to dispose of the waste in an environmentally friendly manner. This helps to minimise our carbon footprint and promote sustainability.

Can a dirty toilet cause infection? 

A dirty toilet can cause infection if it is not cleaned and maintained correctly. Toilets can become contaminated with germs and bacteria, including those that can cause illness and disease. When a toilet is not washed and disinfected regularly, these germs and bacteria can spread to other surfaces and potentially cause infection.

There are several ways in which a dirty toilet can potentially cause infection, including:

  1. Direct contact: If a person comes into direct contact with a dirty toilet or its surfaces, they may be at risk of contracting an infection. This can occur through contact with contaminated surfaces or through contact with water or other fluids that may contain germs and bacteria.
  2. Indirect contact: Even if a person does not come into direct contact with a dirty toilet, they may still be at risk of infection if they come into contact with surfaces or objects that the toilet has contaminated. For example, if a person touches a surface contaminated by a dirty toilet and then touches their face or mouth, they may be at risk of infection.
  3. Inhalation: In some cases, people may be at risk of infection if they inhale particles or vapours from a dirty toilet. This can occur if the toilet needs to be ventilated correctly or if it needs to be cleaned and disinfected regularly.

It is essential to clean and disinfect toilets regularly to reduce the risk of spreading germs and bacteria and to maintain good hygiene.

What diseases can you get from toilet seats?

The toilet sneeze effect is when 1,000 invisible tiny droplets of water are propelled into the air when the toilet is flushed, potentially spreading germs and bacteria from the toilet bowl. This is particularly concerning in public restrooms, where many people use the same toilet and germs can spread easily.

Besides, many diseases can be transmitted through contact with a dirty toilet seat, including streptococcus, staphylococcus, E. coli, shigella bacteria, hepatitis A virus and the common cold virus.

How to prevent toilet infection? 

To prevent infection from a dirty toilet seat, it is crucial to practice good hygiene and to clean and disinfect toilet seats regularly. This may involve cleaning the seat with a toilet seat cleaner, providing sanitary bins to dispose of sanitary wastes, using air fresheners to mask unpleasant odours, and providing soap dispenserspaper towel dispensers, and hand sanitiser dispensers and hand dryers to encourage hand hygiene. 

Besides, hiring a professional washroom hygiene service can help maintain good hygiene. These services can provide regular cleaning and disinfection of washroom surfaces and restocking supplies, such as toilet paper and soap.
