Disinfection instead of “nest building” for the ideal washroom

14/11/2017 | Dreieich
The results of a recent study[1] on hygiene in Europe’s public washrooms have confirmed that, for the majority of public toilet users, current hygiene measures are not sufficient. For over half of those surveyed (57 per cent)[2], public washrooms are not a place where they feel at ease. The toilets in particular were regarded as a sore point. The results of this survey concern washroom operators in all sectors and clearly highlight the immense need for better cleanliness. Operators who don’t wish to dismiss the sense of unease experienced by their guests as “hygiene hysteria” can make a good impression both quickly and easily through the service they offer.

Public washrooms are not a place where people feel comfortable

29/03/2017 | Dreieich
How clean are public toilets? Not very, according to a recent survey. There was good news for employers though: Their WCs were judged to be the cleanest. In contrast, there is plenty of room for improvement in washrooms in schools, service stations, train stations, airports and department stores. By implementing a suitable concept in these locations, operators can ensure better standards of hygiene, which translates to a higher sense of well-being and higher satisfaction among users.
