What Horror’s are Lurking in your Washroom!

29th October 2019

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.

 

The Gory Truth

The average toilet seat is covered in about 295 bacteria per square inch

A flush handle can be home to as many as 83 bacteria per square inch

Some bacteria can become airborne just by flushing the loo

The average bathroom floor has about 764 bacteria per square inch

A bathroom counter top can be home to 452 bacteria per square inch

A bathroom sink can be harboring 2,733 bacteria per square inch

The biggest Horror though is your taps, which can contain a staggering 6,267 bacteria per square inch.

 

So before your washroom turns into a Nightmare and gives your visitors Goosebumps (ahem!)  check out the Scott Control hygienic washroom solution from Kimberly Clark
