Making improvements in workplace cleanliness is a great way to work smarter — and create value for customers. Provide a clean environment for employees and customers. Back it up with good hygiene practices to avoid spreading germs.

Why the Cleanliness of Your Workplace Restroom Matters

“A dirty bathroom is more than a nuisance or a potential health hazard: According to a national hand-washing survey, the condition of restrooms in the workplace indicates to employees just how much their company values them.”

Proper Handwashing — and Drying — Is the No. 1 Way to Prevent Spread of Contagious Disease

“When it comes to preventing the spread of contagious disease, handwashing tops the list of effective strategies. The key is to do it, and to do it correctly, using proper products and techniques.”

Face It — Why handwashing alone is not enough

“If you could see me at work, you would see my face is resting against the palm of my left hand as I look at the computer screen; that may be the biggest mistake I have made today when it comes to preventing the spread of germs and bacteria.”

Restaurant cleanliness more important than customer service, finds report

“Food hygiene ratings have greater influence over a diner’s choice of venue than customer service, according to research by food safety management company Checkit.”

Odor Patrol: Tile and Grout Cleaning

“Grout — the substance filling the void between the tiles — is porous. The smaller the tile, the higher the grout-to-tile ration. So, while grout bonds the tiles together and prevents cracking and chipping, it also harbors soils, contaminants and urine.”

Top Restroom Complaint: Bad Odor

By | Cleaning And Disinfecting, Odor Control | No Comments

Man with clothespin on noxeIn a recent survey, Americans listed bad odor as their top complaint regarding unpleasant experiences in public restrooms. The survey, conducted by The Bradly Corporation, noted that “nearly 60% of Americans say they’ve had a particularly unpleasant experience in a public restroom due to the condition of the facilities. The top complaints are: a really bad smell (80% of respondents cited odors); toilets that are clogged or not flushed (78% have encountered toilet troubles); and an overall appearance that’s dirty, unkempt or old (72% noted this).” [Emphasis ours.]

The survey also revealed that people do not want to touch anything in the restroom. They will use their feet, hips, and elbows to avoid touching flushers and door handles with their hands.

A restroom that doesn’t look — and smell — clean really does make a bad impression on customers.
