How to Make Your Workplace Bathroom Safe and Healthy for Reopening

As things continue to open up and we go back to a “normal” way of life, business owners are feeling increased pressure to take responsibility for the cleanliness of their amenities. While it’s always been important to make sure that your facilities are up to a certain sanitary standard, it’s now a principal focus. People are more acutely aware than ever of what an acceptable level of hygiene is, and with the bar set higher than before, businesses need to step up their sanitation game.

Venues such as restaurants, cafes, and pubs, are just some of the businesses working hard to create a safe and healthy space for all patrons to enjoy. Hand washing stations, social distancing measures, and regular cleaning with antibacterial products are a few of the tactics that businesses are putting in place to keep their customers healthy and happy. In 2021, the threat of a bad review stating that a business isn’t suitably clean is enough to spur many business owners into preventative action.

One area that’s often open to sanitary scrutiny is the bathroom. This is a common area for germs to spread and so many visitors may feel increasingly nervous about using these facilities since the pandemic. They may be concerned about how frequently the bathroom is cleaned, how thoroughly it’s been cleaned, and can be put off using the bathroom if there are visible signs of mould, mildew, or bacteria growth. These indicate that the surfaces haven’t been adequately sanitized and raise questions about the overall cleanliness of your establishment.

It’s vital to make sure that bathrooms are at the highest possible standard of cleanliness for your patrons and your employees. As most small businesses have limited numbers of bathrooms, this is likely also a space your employees have to use. A potential bacterial or viral outbreak could not only threaten your customers’ health, harm your reputation, and (in a worst-case scenario) shut down your business, but endanger your employees too. After a tough 12 months, businesses want to avoid these outcomes at any cost.

But protecting your employees and patrons doesn’t have to come at a great cost. In fact, there are some preventative solutions that are low maintenance and easy to implement, such as changing your bathroom sealant.

Replacing your existing sealant with the healthiest alternative on the market is one of the best ways to give you peace of mind that your business’s bathrooms are safe for your employees and patrons to use.
