COVID-19 and Public Restrooms   

 

Social distancing affects everyone in most buildings and locations including the public restroom.  In an effort to maintain six-foot physical distancing in restrooms, the creativity of man, or lack thereof, are on public display as these photos authenticate.  

For nearly a decade, JaniWrap Toilet Covers has set the standard in restroom aesthetics when a malfunctioning toilet, urinal or sink is temporarily removed from service.

JaniWrap was the first and only beautiful and effective method of taking a fixture offline until repair could be made and continues to be the preferred choice of schools, medical facilities, shopping malls, arena’s, airports and Fortune 500 companies worldwide. 

With the advent of the global COVID 19 pandemic, JaniWrap is currently being used to remove perfectly good toilet fixtures form service in response to private and governmental physical distancing mandates – who would have thought?

nterestingly, England was the foreteller of things to come in the U.S. when JaniWrap’s United Kingdom distributor CS4UK reported a dramatic increase of orders for JaniWrap Cover Kits in response to their own social distancing requirements. 

It was at this time that new Not In Service Due To Social Distancing labels were created to notify and encourage physical separation in a visually pleasing and effective manner.

These new social distancing labels were soon followed with an oversized version of the same label made of vinyl and designed to release clean and easily from all substrates. 

These labels are for use without the JaniWrap Cover and are used on sinks, drinking fountains, hand dryers, and anywhere the notification label is helpful.  

In addition, JaniWrap’s aluminum Not In Service signs continue to be used in Class A buildings and similar sites benefitting from their distinctive look when hanging from toilet stall doors. 

They come with their own storage case to protect them when not in use and are an effective tool for any facilities department to have at their disposal.

JaniWrap is proud to be an integral part of a positive first impression a restroom visitor has in your building, establishment or property – rest assured, we are committed to serving you well into the future.

The only way to keep public toilets clean is to treat them the way you would at home. For V. Komathy, 45, the cleaner responsible for Ipoh City Council’s award-winning toilets, it all boils down to attitude. “Would you leave your toilet at home filthy?” she asked.
 
The once-dilapidated facility at the council’s Town Service Section in Buntong received a facelift after a visit by Mayor Datuk Zamri Man last year. The 25-year-old toilet won gold in the 1Malaysia Clean Toilets Awards, which was organised by the Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Ministry last year. Here is Komathy’s story: “I was born and raised in Ipoh. I had wanted to further my studies. However, I fell in love with my husband in secondary school and decided to get married instead. I was a homemaker up until 15 years ago, when I decided to join the workforce. “My husband is a garbage truck driver, so I decided to join as a general worker. “My mother did not agree, but I chose to work with the council anyway.
 

My four children are supportive of my work.

 
At home, I am a ‘sporting’ mother, but I teach them to appreciate cleanliness and practise it at home. “Previously, I was assigned to clean and sweep public areas, like road and drains. When I was informed that I would be in charge of the newly renovated toilets last year, I was nervous, but took up the challenge anyway.
 
My supervisors were very supportive. “One of the most annoying habits of users is to leave the toilets unflushed. “There is no way around it. Would you leave your toilet at home filthy? The same applies to public toilets. If everyone played their part, we can maintain cleanliness. “When I learnt that we won the award, I was happy to have made my family proud. I am happy that the Ipoh City Council won it. Some of my friends had even asked about the win. It was one of the proudest moments of my life.
 
I went for the award-giving ceremony in Kuala Lumpur and received the award from the minister (Tan Sri Noh Omar). “I can say that our hard work had paid off. My children and colleagues are happy for me. “Now, the challenge is for us to maintain this and make sure that our toilets stay clean. It is quite hard, as the restrooms are frequently used by the Town Service Section staff (some 700 council staff, including truck drivers and workers in charge of garbage collection). They would return from their duties with wet boots. So, I have to make sure that I wash the floor twice daily. “Do your best in whatever profession you choose.
 
I am proud of my job. There is nothing to be ashamed of. There is nothing wrong with sweeping roads as it is a noble job. Do not ever think that your work is not good enough, or others have a better job than you. As long you as you give your best… that is all that matters. “As for me, I am making a decent living, and that is all that matters.”
 

Award the result of teamwork between management and staff.

 
The fragrant smell of pandan leaves gives an air of freshness as one enters the restrooms at the Ipoh City Council’s Town Service Section in Buntong. Despite the space constraint, the council did a good job in redesigning the 25-year-old toilets, completing its facelift in time for the 1Malaysia Clean Toilets Awards (ATB1M). The toilets won the Gold Award in the Government Office Category last year.
 
The restrooms are equipped with showers and squat toilets. The combined use of natural and mechanical ventilation methods, inspired by rest and relax areas along PLUS highways, minimises bad odours.
 
The win is a result of effective teamwork between the city council’s management and staff, including V. Komathy, who was assigned to monitor and clean the toilets frequented by Town Service Section staff. Public Health Urban Services Department assistant director S. Manisegaran said while Ipoh had a list of award-winning public toilets, it was the first time the council had submitted an entry for its own toilet.
 
ATB1M was established by the Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Ministry in 2010 to rate and reward clean public toilets.
 
It wants all public toilets to be rated three-stars (satisfactory) and above by 2020. The toilets are evaluated based on the environment (lighting, water supply, ventilation and sewage treatment), structure and maintenance (floor, ceiling, sinks, wash basins and toilet bowls) and sanitary facilities (soap dispensers and tissue papers).
 

Other criteria are toilet signages…

 
…toilet cleaning activities (cleaning schedule, storage and tidiness) and additional facilities (mirrors, hangers, decoration, diaper changing rooms and toilets for the disabled). Toilets in Malaysia are given either five stars (very clean), four (clean), three (satisfactory), two (average), one (less clean) or zero (dirty).

Restrooms Texas Style 

America voted and agrees that the New Braunfels Buc-ee’s has a bathroom as big as Texas and some of the most spotless loos in the Lone Star State, making this pit stop perfect for any road warrior and fit for a king.

With 83 toilets to choose from, guests even get their very own throne!

Restrooms Texas Style

Buc-ee’s has an incredible men’s restroom in New Braunfels, TX and if all their locations are similar in size, scope, design and cleanliness my hat is off to the superb Buc-ee’s leadership.

  They recognizes the importance of this critical space – especially when you’re a little sore and road weary.

This contest is undoubtedly fun, but it also conveys a critical message that restroom hygiene matters for good health and good business and proprietors recognize the parallel between clean washrooms and customer retention”

Buc-ee’s brand of convenience stores knows firsthand that clean bathrooms mean big business,” Cintas’ Market Development Representative, Gary Gonzaba

The picture of the urinals at Buc-ee’s is pretty astounding. Everything is tiled including the floor to ceiling privacy walls and combined with the auto-flushers and hand sanitizing stations it’s all just pretty remarkable.

With the dedication to keeping the restrooms clean, sanitary and visually appealing it’s no wonder Buc-ee’s won the Cintas Best America’s Restroom contest in 2012.

Next time you’re in the Lone Star State make it a point to fuel up at Buc-ee’s and see for yourself how refreshing clean restrooms can be.

JaniWrap tips our hat to Buc-ee’s.
