Las Vegas Facility Managers and Toilet Seat Covers

a1_101513In Las Vegas, janitorial service responsibility sometimes means providing the supplies as well as the service. And while you’ll of course hire the cleaning company with great references, service, expertise and pricing, someone will need to make important decision about which consumable supplies to carry.

As a rest room visitor (either as a facility guest or employee), most people take a quick look around and make an initial assessment regarding its cleanliness. Absent glaring signs of disarray or unsanitary conditions, most visitors will be satisfied with a rest room that appears superficially clean.

However, here is a list of just a few of the infectious germs frequently found on public or corporate rest room toilet seats:

  • Staphylococcus
  • MRSA
  • Pinworms
  • E. coli
  • Streptochaucus
  • Shigella
  • Other viruses that cause diarrhea and vomiting

Even if you feel confident about the disinfecting processes of your Las Vegas janitorial service provider, germs aren’t your only concern on toilet seats. It’s possible that the sometimes harsh chemicals and solvents used to assure that the toilets are clean and relatively germ-free can cause skin reactions and conditions on the buttocks and/or thighs of people sitting on unprotected toilets.

Yes, they could use toilet paper to line the seat before sitting down, but excessive toilet paper usage may create costly drain and plumbing problems or worse, overflowing toilet bowls. Since toilet seat covers are designed to be flushed along with reasonable amounts of toilet paper and usually dissolve quickly, they are the obvious choice for a properly supplied rest room.

As a facility manager responsible for the maintenance and janitorial service of your company’s rest rooms, you have an active role to take in providing a safe and sanitary bathroom environment. Reduce employee illness and absenteeism and promote a cleaner workplace environment by providing toilet seat covers in your company’s guest and employee rest rooms. It’s a relatively small expense that returns big dividends in terms of increased facility cleanliness, rest room comfort and a positive impression being made by your company’s choices.
