Solving the Restroom Problem

Solving the Restroom Problem

Public restrooms are a major challenge. They’re expensive, they’re difficult to clean, and they remain the number one building maintenance complaint year after year. That’s because they’re dirty, they stink and dirty restrooms drive customers away. On top of all that, they’re also a serious health hazard. The biggest problem in the public restroom is the way that they’re cleaned. Most restrooms are cleaned with a mop and bucket, and mops just don’t work. They remove very little soil and contaminants and actually spread contaminants around moving them from one area to another. Fortunately there is a better way to clean a public restroom.

Futility of Mopping

Futility of Mopping

For generations cleaning professionals have been fighting a losing battle. For generations the mop and bucket have been responsible for lost productivity, lost business, dangerous slips and falls, poor employee morale, and spoiling great chemistry, even though there are better, faster and more cost-effective alternatives for cleaning floors. There’s only one time in a mop’s life that it is truly clean, and that’s when it is brand new. From that point on, it’s quickly becoming a compost heap for soils and contaminants. Cleaning chemistry that users and manufacturers have invested so dearly in is contaminated before it even hits the floor.

Germiest Building in America

Germiest Building in America

Every weekday nearly 60 million Americans – one-fifth of the entire population – spend eight hours trapped inside what some experts consider the “Germiest” place in America. Trapped inside this building with them are millions of invisible enemies, seeking to make them ill or, sometimes, kill them. These denizens of the invisible world are all around us – on virtually every surface. We’re talking about MRSA, E.coli, influenza, shigella, and molds.

Cleaning the Restroom for Health

Cleaning the Restroom for Health

From an environmental health scientist’s point of view, a restroom is a high risk environment. At its most basic level the restroom is a bio-hazardous waste transfer station — the place where biological waste is transferred from the human digestive system to the sanitary sewer system. All too often the transfer does not occur effectively, and bio-hazardous waste is spread through different areas of the indoor environment, creating a breeding ground for potentially harmful microbes.
