The toilet and the sink are the obvious areas for germs and bacteria to hide, but tests have shown that they are not the filthiest.
To help you navigate the hotspots for bacteria and keep your bathroom at its cleanest, Kimberly Clark have mapped out in this video the areas to look out for….
The most common types of bacteria found in any bathroom are bacteroidaceae, E.coli, streptococcus and salmonella. Your employees and visitors are regularly exposed to these types of bacteria on a daily basis. The best way to prevent them spreading is to encourage excellent hand hygiene and to provide your staff with effective hygienic washroom solutions.
