Germs are everywhere, bathrooms especially. It does not matter if we are talking public restrooms, your office bathroom or the bathroom in your home, they all have germs. Keeping your bathrooms clean and sanitary should be an important aspect of your cleaning routine. For many, one way to ensure their restrooms remain sanitary is by providing toilet seat covers and toilet seat cover dispensers in their bathroom stalls.
Ah, yes, toilet seat covers. We have all seen them and the majority of people have used them. Generally we see them hanging above or next to the toilet in a public restroom, such as a large commercial building, a restaurant or store. But, as the owner of those restrooms, why should you always keep your bathroom stalls stocked with toilet seat covers?
The answer is quite simple, really. They offer sanitary protection for the toilet users. While it hasn’t yet been proven that diseases can be spread from user to user from a toilet seat, there are still germs on the seats.
Think of it this way, if you were to walk into a public restroom and see someone had made a mess all over the seat, would you be comfortable just taking some toilet paper and wiping it off and then sitting down to do your business? Chances are you would rather err on the side of caution, choosing to both wipe the seat and then use a toilet seat cover just to get rid of the “gross” factor. So, really it’s about giving your restroom users the peace of mind of having that layer of protection between their rears and a seat thousands of others have come in contact with.
As a business owner, you have a variety of toilet seat covers and toilet seat cover dispensers, you can choose from. You can go with the standard cardboard box that holds about 125 of half-folded covers to get you by, or you could go for something new, shiny and even more sanitary. You could go with the fully-enclosed plastic seat cover dispenser for sanitation, complete with a dispensing lever. Really, it all depends on your tastes and your budget.
Just remember this, when you are going through what you do and don’t “need” for your businesses bathrooms, put yourself in the user’s shoes. Would you use your restroom if it lacked toilet seat covers for your stalls? If you answered no, then you’ll definitely want to be sure you outfit your toilet stalls with toilet seat covers.
