AFH  Washrooms  are  safe  havens  for    
germs  and  bacteria    
Because  of  the  environment,  particularly  traffic  volume  
and  hazardous  bio  waste  —  restrooms  are  safe  havens  for  
germs  and  bacteria  to  thrive  and  pose  risks.    
 
Several  industry  studies,  measurements,  and  surveys  
emphasize  the  dangers  involved  in  using  public  restrooms.  
 
Washroom  hot  zones  include:  the  toilet/urinal,  the  floor  
surrounding  it,  the  sink  and  counter,  and  high-­‐touch  
objects  such  as  handles

contaminations  control  
People  are  more  aware  than  ever  about  the  dangers  of  
cross  contamination  as  well  as  the  risks  involved  with  
visiting  a  public  restroom    
 
In  developed  countries,  Only  2  out  of  3  people  wash  
their  hands  after  using  the  washroom

Driving  Factors  for  Innovation  
Improved  Health  and  Wellness    
Various  studies  confirm:  
Maintaining  a  high  restroom  cleanliness  level,    
a  high  hand-­‐washing  compliance  and  
addressing  the  public's  growing  concerns  about  touching  
restroom  surfaces  and  fixtures  is  essential    
for  improved  health  and  wellness    
 
Driving  Factors  for  Innovation  

 Improved  Image    
Research  shows  that:  
 around  70  percent  of  visitors  rank  finding  a  clean  restroom  as  
extremely  important.    
A  similar  percentage  responded  that  they  would  avoid  a  
facility  in  the  future  if  they  found  the  restroom  to  be  dirty.  
 
Driving  Factors  for  Innovation  

Improved  Costs  and  Financial  Performance  


Clean  and  hygienic  restrooms  will  enhance  the  visitors'  and  
staff's  experience,  reduce  absenteeism  and  help  customer  
retention.    
Improvements,  such  as  touch-­‐free  fixtures  and  hardware  will  
increase  the  value  of  the  building  and  its  service  and  will  easily  
be  offset  by  an  attractive  return  
Driving  Factors  for  Innovation  

Environmental  Soundness  
Using  environmentally  friendly  and  ecological  certified  
cleaning  products,  like  bacterial  and  enzyme  based  products  
and  reduction  in  the  usage  of  water  and  energy    
will  help  the  environment,  contributing  to  the  global  
sustainability
