Ok, so recent studies suggest that public toilet seats probably aren’t as dirty as we like to make them out to be. However, when it comes to customer service and making your patrons feel comfortable and safe while on your property, it really doesn’t matter what science says. Everyone has their own crazy public restroom habits, with many people doing everything possible not to touch the toilet seat, doorknobs or other community surfaces. As a responsible business owner, it’s your job to make your customers’ bathroom experience less traumatic than it already is. Installing automatic toilet seat covers in your restrooms will certainly alleviate some of that stress for your clients.
To Cover or to Hover – That’s the Real Question
Public restrooms cater to hundreds of people a day. That’s a lot of shared contact with people you don’t even know. Many people who use a public bathroom will either cover the toilet seat with something or simply hover over it to avoid coming in contact with what they think is on the seat. The good news is, most toilet seats don’t contain any other bacteria than what’s probably already on the skin, and for any nasties that people don’t already carry like e-coli, if you don’t have any open wounds near the bacteria, chances are it won’t get inside your body just from using a public toilet.
Having said all that, the fact remains that people will still act as if your public bathroom is the dirtiest place on Earth, and they will either waste gobs of toilet paper covering it if there are no seat covers available, or they will hover until their legs feel like jelly. Either way, those customers aren’t going to be your biggest fans – trust us.
So, what’s a business owner to do? Install a touchless toilet seat cover dispenser, that’s what!
An Automatic Toilet Seat Cover?
Everyone has seen those cheap paper toilet seat cover dispensers in public restrooms, right? You simply pull one out, place it on the toilet seat and hope for the best. In most cases, they fall into the toilet or onto the floor before you even get a chance to sit down. If they do manage to stay in place, the thin paper is really little protection against anything below it since it allows most substances to go right through it. Keep in mind as well, that everything in the bathroom stall that’s open to the air is probably already contaminated by fecal matter and other bacteria that fills the area every time the toilet is flushed. That’s a nice picture, huh?
A Brill automatic toilet seat cover, on the other hand, provides a hand-free, sanitary way to cover a toilet seat. With the Brill seat cover dispenser for toilets installed in your public restroom, your customer simply wave their hand in front of a wall-mounted sensor and a new, clean plastic toilet seat cover seats itself perfectly for use. The user never has to touch the toilet seat or the cover.
Benefits of Using a Hands-Free Automatic Toilet Seat Cover in Each Stall
Despite the findings of research and studies, the fact remains that it is still possible to spread germs and bacteria via toilet seats. To ease your customers’ minds and prevent (however small a chance) the spread of germs, installing a hands-free automatic toilet seat cover dispenser in each stall of your public bathroom is best. Doing so will:
- Prevent the spread of germs and bacteria
- Cut down on illness for customers and employees
- Prevent missed days from work
- Do your part in protecting public health
