With the recent spread of Covid-19 on a global scale, it is more important that ever to take every precaution against the spread of viruses and bacteria. Few people know that bathrooms play a critical role in the spread of airborne flu viruses. One study, indicates that people can shed 20000+ flu viruses through diarrhea as opposed to just 300+ through coughing or sneezing! Download the study here and read below about how to reduce the spread of these viruses and bacteria.
Conventional bathrooms extract air through the ceiling vent or not at all. The problem with this method of extraction is that it draws airborne diseases from the toilet bowl up toward the ceiling. This creates a room full of infectious aerosolized germs.
Once airborne, these germs are usually riding on a water droplet that is being sucked upwards at supersonic speeds by the bathroom fan’s vacuum power. That droplet quickly evaporates (in less than a second) and the remaining naked germs are called “droplet nuclei,” which can stay airborne for hours if not days depending on the air movement within the room.
Don’t take our word for it…
In recent study by Steven Welty (download it from here), he noted that toilet aerosolization was the key factor in spreading the 2003 SARS epidemic around the world.
What’s more is that he noted that studies have shown that an intestinal or perineal area staph (S in MRSA is staph) infected person’s flatulence event can aerosolize
this bacteria infecting innocent patients.
Our Hygizone solutions provide an innovative range of Concealed Cisterns, Odour Extraction and Touch-less Technology to ensure the highest level of health, hygiene and comfort.
Hygizone odour extraction: removes harmful odour and bacteria directly from the toilet bowl or urinal before it can contaminate the surrounding breathing space.
Hygizone concealed cistern tanks: are hidden in the wall to maximize space saving and accommodate wall hung toilet bowls which allow ease of cleaning under the bowl.
Hygizone touchless technology: allows you to flush the toilet with the wave of a hand, reducing the spread of germs.
Hygizone waterless urinals: extract odour at the source through the bottletrap eliminating the need for wasteful flushing and in turn requires no touching of a un-hygienic flush button.
