Education Sector Servicing

Hygiene experts have been saying that school toilets in the UK must be improved, or we could see a further rise in the number of children and staff absent because of illness through the ever more increasing spread of germs and viruses. School classroom sizes have noticeably increased over the years, schools have more children, more staff, all of which adds to the need for better hygiene control.

Environments across the board pose high threats of cross contamination, and educational environments rank high on this list, purely due to the amount of people who are on site. Sustaining clean hygienic environments in schools can prove a difficult task but studies have shown that cleanliness has significant impact on the overall health, happiness and performance of children, staff and visitors

With most school budgets, seemingly always at breaking point, and as many as 72% of school leaders saying their budgets will be ‘unsustainable’ by 2019, the education sector needs to be doing everything it can to make the money go further.


Boys toilets especially can cause no end of issues including blocked pipework and omitting foul odours. Actually, this is a problem faced in many male washrooms across the board and many companies believe that nothing can be done to resolve this issue other than masking smells with air fresheners and cleaning with bleaches and other harsh chemicals.
Well, this is simply not the case. Hygienic Concepts have developed a solution and system that WILL eliminate those odours and prevent blocked pipework, leaving your male washrooms smelling and looking like new.

The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine ran a survey of UK school children to try and find out just what goes on in school toilets across Britain. The outcome shows;

  • A third of secondary school children thought toilets were rarely cleaned
  • A quarter saying they’re often disgusting. Children frequently report inadequate supplies of toilet paper and soap, no hot water and no towels.
  • Girls are more likely to wash their hands than boys; primary school children more likely than secondary school children to use soap.
