The November issue of Cleaning & Maintenance Management® magazine is now available online, featuring the cover story "Does Your Restroom ''Feel'' Clean?" by Peter J. Sheldon, Sr. and Dr. Charles Gerba.
The authors state that what "feels" clean to one person, may in fact seem just the opposite to you and in assessing cleanliness in restrooms, we need to educate building occupants that germs are invisible.
They add that some technologies, such as spray-and-vac systems, represent the pinnacle of performance that are at the top of the list for performance and quality.
The authors note that if building service contractors and in-house staffs don''t grasp the effectiveness of today''s innovative restroom care systems, then it is likely the end users of the service won''t understand the concept or purpose behind these types of products.
According to the authors, manufacturers and distributors are available to provide demonstrations and help educate you on technology that can save you time, money and, more importantly, provide a better, healthier indoor environment for your customers.
