The Benefits of Washroom Services from Initial Hygiene

How Your Business Benefits From Washroom Services

First impressions are crucial in business.

Whether it’s the instantly personable nature of your salespeople or the immediate warmth of your service team, those initial seconds and minutes are all it takes for clients or customers to form a positive view of your company.

However, poor hygiene in your firm’s washroom can quickly flush this reputation down the toilet.

After all, visitors and staff are unlikely to hold a firm in high regard if its washroom looks like a pigsty, with the murky facilities unusable or outdated, and the risk of infection lurking ominously on every surface.

But this is where we can help.

Don’t Run the Risk of Poor Hygiene

Did you know that the typical office worker’s hands are exposed to 10 million bacteria per day?

Disturbingly, these microorganisms are capable of staying alive on hands for up to three hours – and this can spread misery throughout the workplace, as viruses are transferred via many different surfaces and objects.

As a business owner, your workforce is your most valuable asset, which is why it’s vital all staff members are given the appropriate washroom facilities to make sure they’re protecting themselves and others from nasty illnesses.

The Importance of Hand Care

Infections such as colds, flu, diarrhoea and vomiting can be controlled by proper hand washing.

After using the toilet, washing your hands thoroughly reduces the level of potentially harmful bacteria on your hands, which also slashes the risk of cross contamination among subsequent visitors to your washroom.

In fact, regular hand washing can decrease the bacteria present on hands by up to 80 per cent.

In addition, by encouraging thorough hand washing throughout the workplace, and installing appropriate washroom solutions, illness can be reduced by 30-50 per cent, which should be music to the ears of  employers understandably worried about the impact sickness has on their bottom line.

Why Hand Drying Is Crucial

Whilst washing hands is vital, making sure they’re dry is equally as important.

This is due to damp hands spreading 1,000 times more bacteria than dry hands, so encouraging visitors and employees to dry their digits properly – whether that’s using hand dryers or paper towels – is crucial.

At Initial, we’re dedicated to limiting the spread of bacteria and viruses to help reduce employee absenteeism and improve productivity, which is why we offer a wide range of hand drying options to suit your business.
