On average a well run company will clean its restrooms 3 days a week. Of those 3 cleaning days the toilet seats will be cleaned maybe once. If you work for a company that has 50 employees with 5 toilets in the building, the average toilet seat will be sat on 50 times before it is wiped down and cleaned off. What this means is that when you sit down on a toilet in that company, 50 more people have sat there before you with nothing separating there bare behind from the toilet seat you’re now sitting on.
Toilets breed bacteria and germs, it is a moist warm environment where certain bacteria that are extremely bad for us thrive. A great way to protect yourself from germs living in a toilet and germs spread from person to person is to utilize a toilet seat cover when you sit on a toilet. Many private and public restrooms make available toilet seat covers which are usually mounted on a toilet stall wall in a toilet seat cover dispenser. For every restroom that offers toilet seat covers there are at least 10 that do not. A toilet seat cover can be folded up into a relatively small piece of paper smaller in size than the average envelope. They can be easily carried in a pocket or a purse for when you need it.
Toilet seat covers come in one basic style and are used as a barrier between you and a well used toilet seat. Some toilet seat covers are treated with a wax so they can be dispensed more easily from a toilet seat cover dispenser. Toilet seat covers can be purchased on cleaning supply websites and are usually sold in packs of 250 to 1000 toilet seat covers per pack. Toilet seat cover dispensers come in many styles and colors and can accent any taste in decorating. These dispensers can easily be mounted on a toilet stall wall or on a permanent wall behind the toilet. Toilet seat cover dispensers come in many colors including white, black, stainless steel, chrome and transparent black. These dispensers start at about 5 dollars and can be a welcome sight in any public restroom. Toilet seat covers are not as expensive as you would think, the average toilet seat cover costs just over a penny each.
By providing basic sanitary needs for your employees you can cut down on costly absences and maintain a more productive work environment. It is a proven fact that an employer who shows they care will have employees that care more about their jobs and therefore are more productive. If you are an employee that works for a company that does not have toilet seat covers available in their restrooms you can still protect yourself by obtaining your own and using a toilet seat cover whenever you are in public restroom.
