Sensor-operated fixtures in the restroom…a must!

Posted by on

Recently, I had breakfast in a small town in Illinois (Yes, it was open).  COVID-19 signs and warnings to wear face masks were placed on the outside and in the lobby of the restaurant. The waitress had a clear, full-face plastic shield similar to medical ones over her face. Her hands were covered with blue rubber gloves as was the rest of the restaurant staff.  Large, clear plastic dividers were placed between the booths. The plastic covered menus were wiped and cleaned.  The customers were seated in every other sanitized booth and hand sterilizers were placed in conspicuous places.  Sounds...

Personally, we have an ample supply of hand soap and sanitizer in our household. By the same token, you might consider having an ample supply of Sloan hand soap ESD-217 and ESD-232 and ESD-231 antibacterial for your customers as, I believe, the demand is not going away soon. Naturally, our business is selling hand soap and washing hands 10 times per day means...

COVID-19 AND URINAL “SPLASHBACK” (SJS-19 CLEANER)

Posted by on

WHOA! Could disease be spread by an infected person’s aerosolized urine in the restroom? Traces of SARS-Cov-2 RNA have been detected in the urine (and other excrement) of some patients according to the World Health Organization. Sobering thought! Although, to date, there have been no published reports of transmission. “Splashback,” urinating in the water at the bottom of the traditional urinal as well as stepping in urinal puddles on the floor, could be a major breeding ground for bacterium. One of the many ways to help ensure cleanliness, is frequently cleaning and disinfecting the urinals and areas around the urinals.  ...

HANDWASHING HABITS IMPROVING!

Posted by on

Good news, according to the CDC’s June survey U.S. adults are more likely to wash their hands after eating at a restaurant, before eating at home and after experiencing respiratory symptoms than they were in October of 2019. What does that mean? The American public is now more aware of the benefits of handwashing to help prevent illnesses and the spread of viruses.  With the good news of handwashing clearly rising, soap and disinfectants will be in demand. Automatic touch-free dispensers (ESD-250) are becoming more of the standard in hand washing because of COVID-19, and yes, we have them in...
