Do You Ever Wonder How Dirty Public Restrooms can be?
A study in the journal of Applied and Environmental Microbiology was conducted in 2014. In this study researchers tracked the Microbiomes of four university restrooms over hours and days. Within an hour of normal use, researchers found there were 500,000 bacterial cells per square inch on the bathroom surfaces, on average.
Surprisingly, all restrooms fixture contain fecal bacteria. This bacteria is responsible for causing diseases such as Hepatitis A and B or gastroenteritis. The MSNC presented a report to the Society of Contagious Diseases, that examined the hygienic conditions of different buildings. Researchers found disease-causing microbes as well as insect colonies. Within this group you could see:  The staphylococcus, guilty of creating fever and chills, and bacilli, promoters of diarrhea.
How often should I have a deep cleaning service for the restrooms?
Public restrooms require daily deep cleaning. Daily cleaning protects bacteria. Usually, a single deep clean each day is sufficient for small to mid-sized workplaces, particularly those with limited client/customer traffic. In big premises, with high-traffic restrooms (such as schools or hospitals), a restroom cleaning schedule might include up to 6 cleanings a day.
