If you had waterless urinals installed and use waterless urinal accessories at your building, not only are you saving water, but you are also creating a more hygienic restroom for yourself and your staff. Although this doesn’t mean that your bathroom is completely void of bacteria, you may be preventing exposure to harmful bacteria in this room.
This particular bacterium is known to lurk around toilets, sinks, showers, and on door handles. Since waterless urinal accessories don’t require touching a handle to be flushed, you are minimizing the chances that you or someone else in your building will become exposed to this bacteria and develop a staph infection.
Although E. Coli is commonly found in kitchens, it is also found in bathrooms. This bacterium exists naturally within your intestinal tract but in certain conditions it can product a toxin that can be harmful to your health. Additionally, certain types of this bacterium can also be fatal.
Other Types of Bacteria
There are other types of bacteria that may make their homes in your building’s bathrooms. These include bacillus, streptococcus, salmonella, and campylobacter. Additionally, some microorganisms and fungi have the potential to develop on the surfaces in bathrooms.
One of the best ways to prevent harmful bacteria from remaining in your building’s bathrooms is to follow a regular maintenance schedule. However, sometimes this isn’t enough.
