Safe To Touch HQ, Leicester Square, Penshurst

Most of us will have had the same thought at some point in our lives. How do we get out of this lavatory without touching the door handle? Yes, we have washed our hands but how many other people before us haven’t done. Exactly how many germs are on this door handle?

Recent reports have shown that 40% of all people don’t wash their hands after using the toilet. That lavatory door handle could be home to thousands of different bacterias including e-coli, salmonella and streptococcus.

This was exactly my thoughts when leaving the lavatory in a fairly smart restaurant and from that thought Safe to Touch was born!

Micro-organisms live everywhere and can be found in any environment, some aren’t at all hazardous, whereas others can cause serious illness. Even areas which have been cleaned aren’t completely protected, as regular disinfectants only work on certain micro-organisms.

This is where Safe To Touch can help.  We use antimicrobial technologies which are designed to provide long term protection on any surface which concerns you, including lavatory door handles. It deactivates and destroys a broad spectrum of micro-organisms from viruses to moulds.

Based in the historic village of Penshurst, John Somner and his team have a life time of experience in environmental protection and are fully equipped to deal with any micro-organism treatment.   

So ask yourself, is your lavatory door handle Safe to Touch?
