Why Choose Nexus Hygiene?

Nexus Hygiene

Who do you trust?

When it comes to choosing who you work with, trust is an an essential part of that choice, but hard to demonstrate. We know that bad customer experiences lead to negative public perception of companies: you’ve only to look at the recent fiasco when United Airlines’ policy of ‘re-accomodating’ passengers lead to a serious physical assault upon a travelling doctor. The following $1b slide of United’s shares and stocks serves as a reminder of how bad publicity can ruin a business with speed.

Business Benefits of Washroom Services

business benefits of washroom services

First impressions last!

Have you ever walked into a washroom and an awful smell is the first thing you immediately notice? The impression of a clean and hygienic washroom must be a major priority for any business or organisation that hopes to to present a professional and lasting positive image.

Clean and well-supplied washrooms are also the mainstay of employee and visitor health – both encouraging people to use the facilities you have carefully thought about supplying, and also, to help improve hand hygiene in the workplace. This is especially relevant for businesses that are office-based.

Office Hygiene

A study within a London workplace office, found that computer keyboards were a haven for bacteria. Out of 33  keyboards that were swabbed, four were regarded as a potential health hazard, and one was found to contain more bacteria than a toilet seat in the same office! One keyboard, under orders from the microbiologist monitoring the study, was found to contain such a high level of bacteria, it was removed and quarantined for heavy cleaning: it tested positive for over 150 times the recommended safe levels of bacteria.

Bacteria Spread and Health

You can see how the London office study demonstrates the opportunities for bacteria to rapidly spread from surface-to-surface. No doubt levels of bacteria on surfaces affects employee health and wellbeing. Limiting bacteria transmission in the workplace can help with fewer worker sick days, consequently increasing your business output. On average, UK workers take 9.1 days off sick each year.

Increase awareness and benefits of excellent hygiene practices in your workplace or establishment. Encourage scrupulous hand hygiene routines to prevent further germ transmission from the washroom into the workplace. Ensure computer users keep their own keyboard and computer area clean, especially if staff eat lunch at their desks.

Washroom Hygiene: The Elephant in the Room?

Air Freshener Service

What do your business or premises washrooms look like? What would be the first thing a customer or client notices, upon entering the washroom?

Survey

A survey of over 1000 adults conducted in the USA, found that 94% of the respondents would avoid a business in the future if they encountered dirty washrooms. Survey respondents said that they would avoid these types of business if they judged them to be dirty:

  • Restaurants: 79 %
  • Hotels: 79 %
  • Healthcare Facilities: 77 %
  • Supermarkets: 50 %
  • Retail Stores: 45 %
  • Fuel Stations: 45 %
  • Car Dealerships: 39 %

 

Washroom hygiene

 

A later survey showed that perceptions of washroom hygiene were critical. Women respondents were show to be more sensitive to poor washroom hygiene than male respondents.

Concerns

Issues that rated highly as concerns were.

  • Paper towels or toilet paper on the floor – 80%
  • Lack of toilet paper – 67%
  • Empty soap dispensers – 55%
  • Water around the sink area – 42%
  • Old or outdated soap dispensers – 29%

How often are your washrooms checked during the day? If your premises have a high footfall through the toilet area, more regular monitoring is needed. Perceptions of washrooms are crucial to a person’s overall view of your business. Your washroom can look incredibly clean and tidy, but any hint of a dirty smell will change the experience to a negative one.

Social Media Shaming

The age of the internet is well and truly upon us. Furthermore, if you provide a poor service like dirty or inadequate washrooms, photos can be broadcast across the ether in a matter of seconds. Customers are swift to take to social media in order to endorse, or worse, condemn, businesses in a full public view.

Washroom hygiene

Make sure your washrooms are of the highest standards and provide quality services for your staff, customers and guests. It reflects on your business operations as a whole and it could make a big difference to your ratings and image!

Blade Dryers, Warm Air Dryers or Paper Towels?

 

Warm Air Hand Dryer

This week, The Guardian published an article on the battle between the mighty blade style hand dryer and paper towels in public washrooms and workplaces.

Warm Air Hand Dryer

The article stems from a recently published piece of research from The Journal of Applied Microbiology. They focussed on the comparison between a warm air dryer, a jet air dryer and paper towels. The results suggest that the blade-style dryer spreads germs further than either the standard warm air dryers or paper towels.

Results suggested:

60 times more germs than standard air dryers, and 1,300 times more than standard paper towels.”

Warm Air Hand Dryers

At Nexus Hygiene Ltd, we prefer our standard warm air dryers over the blade style models and paper towels. We have found during our extensive research and testing, performance and maintenance levels of the warm air dryers far surpasses the blade-style drying systems. Paper towels are an acceptable form of hand drying in public washrooms but produce waste in large volumes. They also require constant monitoring for topping-up and storage.

Warm Air Hand Dryer

Our serviced warm air hand dryer are the most economical method for washrooms. There is no requirement for the refreshing and monitoring of paper towel stocks, emptying any blade dryer reservoir or cleaning up water spillages from the floor or wall areas. The surface area for fitting is also small and less intrusive than a blade-style dryer.

Overall, we feel warm air hand dryer produces the best solution for washrooms. The dryers are both hygienic and economical. Other benefits include minimal-to-no intervention needed by businesses in-between our service visits.
