The golden standard Here, Brightwell discusses the importance of maintaining high standards in washrooms.

Using an insufficiently equipped or unhygienic public washroom may leave a negative impression on the user, and how a washroom is equipped can reflect on a business and its perceived hygiene standards.

If you visit a restaurant that has a washroom with inadequate handwashing facilities, broken dispensers or overflowing bins, you then begin to wonder what the standards are like where food is being prepared. A study found that more than 80% of customers would avoid a restaurant with a dirty washroom.

Users will immediately notice if a dispenser is faulty or absent but also a washroom environment can be ruined by a dirty or neglected dispenser. Installation of dispensers that have been designed with the end-user in mind support and improve hand hygiene. A stylish design with readily available resource encourages the user to take advantage of the hand soap and paper towels on offer.

Brightwell Dispensers’ stylish Myriad soap and paper dispensers, for example, were designed with front cover windows so that resource levels can be easily checked without having to open the dispensers. The smooth design makes it easy for the dispensers to be cleaned to increase the levels of hygiene.

Handwashing benefits

According to the CDC (Centres for Disease Control and Prevention), washing hands properly is the single most important thing we can do to keep ourselves from getting sick and spreading illness to others.

Hand hygiene is one of the most important ways to keep your facilities hygienic and clean. A recent CDC study found that 89% of outbreaks of foodborne illnesses in restaurants were from food contaminated by food workers. This makes hand washing vital, as it prevents the spread of germs from hands to food.

Practising good hand hygiene is therefore good for customer and staff health, and for the reputation of your business. Touch-free solutions are becoming more popular as they remove contact with commonly touched objects, so there’s less risk of spreading germs. Touch-free products


also keep areas tidier and control usage as they dispense a set amount of paper and soap at a time, as well as enabling efficient cost in use.

The Modular Touch Free soap dispenser from Brightwell Dispensers, for example, brings better hygiene to any environment and helps monitor the use by controlling the amount of soap used.

The first choice

Cross-contamination can be an issue within washrooms, so combatting this issue is key. Paper towels are single-use so they work to reduce cross-contamination in washrooms as well as reducing the number of bacteria hosted on hands by being the faster drying option compared to air hand dryers. The World Health Organisation recommends the use of paper hand towels within its guidelines on hand hygiene in healthcare, in order to improve hygiene standards.

Cleaning washrooms

A clean washroom will help reduce the spread of bacteria so using the correct chemicals is paramount, and the correct amount of chemical is crucial when taking on the task. Using too much product can be an unnecessary business cost whereas not using enough product won’t give you the right cleaning results.

Brightwell Dispensers created the ECO range of chemical dilution systems with this in mind to dispense chemicals accurately, ensuring quality cleaning results. The versatile chemical dilution dispensers work in any commercial environment including hospitality, healthcare and workplaces. For businesses that use more than one chemical, the range has been designed todose in one shot, to diluting up to five chemicals from one dispenser.
