The 4 Most Important Steps to mitigating bathroom health risks

  • 2020-06-11

New research from China indicates that the novel coronavirus may also be transmitted via fecal-oral, not just by respiratory droplets or environmental contact. It has drawn attention from the public to the risk of fecal-oral transmission.

To avoid feces contamination, the China CDC recommends washing your hands frequently, disinfecting surfaces, maintaining personal hygiene.

Due to the impact of this epidemic, consumers' health and environmental protection awareness will be further strengthened. In your bathroom, many habits may feel okay, but they need to be changed. Persistence is the direct result of habit. Persistence, then, depends on having the right habits.

1. When flushing, close the toilet lid.

Philip Tierno, a microbiologist at New York University, says that if the toilet lid is opened during flushing, the instantaneous cyclone in the toilet can bring germs or microorganisms aerosol plumesup to 15 feet in the air and float in the air for several hours. And then fall on the wall and toothbrush, mouthwash cup, towel. In most homes, toilets, washing and showering are performed in the bathroom. Toothbrushes, mouthwash cups, towels, etc. are in the same room as the toilet, so they are easily susceptible to bacterial contamination.

In addition, the toilet lid is not closed when flushing, which will allow the odor in the bathroom to spread around, which will also easily affect the air quality in the bathroom.

2. Pay attention to the toilet seat cleaning

The investigation found that 32% of the toilets had dysentery bacillus, one of them will be survived on the toilet ring for up to 17 days; another experimental report also stated that Inflammatory viruses were thrown into the toilet, and there were 3,000 viruses splashed onto the toilet seat.

The place with such serious pollution is just the closest to people's skin. You need to focus on cleaning it and wash the toilet ring with diluted household disinfectant frequently. You may also want to change to a toilet seat with an antibacterial function. Duroplast toilet seat is a smart economic choice.

As the duroplast is eco-friendly plastic, antibacterial and thus already reduces by itself the spread of germs. And we recommended replacing your toilet seat at a certain time such as 1-2 years to protect yourself from toilet seat germs.

3.Clean the dirt in the toilet in time

If you find that there are still residues after flushing the toilet, be sure to use a toilet brush to clean them. Otherwise, macular stains are easy to form, and mold and bacteria will also grow. The water outlet on the inner edge of the toilet and the outside of the base are all places where dirt is hidden.

When cleaning, first lift the toilet ring and spray the interior with a toilet cleaner. After a few minutes, scrub thoroughly with a toilet brush. It is best to use a thin-ended brush to better clean the inner edge of the toilet.

Use a chlorine-containing disinfectant to scrub and clean once a week.

4. Try not to set up a wastebasket near the toilet

It is a habit of most families to set a wastebasket next to the toilet to store used toilet paper. But few people clean the paper basket at any time, so the bacteria on the toilet paper can spread everywhere.

But if you really need it, use a covered paper basket, which needs to be replaced and cleaned daily.

Adopt these proper bathroom habits, you will feel more comfortable using the toilet, and improving living habits in the bathroom will go a long way to mitigating health risks.
