You may have heard that when you flush a toilet with the lid up, microbes entrained in the air can travel up to 6 feet, landing on all of the surrounding bathroom surfaces within this space. This “plume” phenomenon was first described in the early 1900s by Sir William Horrocks, and has been elaborated on by multiple labs including that of Dr. Charles Gerba, an American microbiologist. In order to understand the distance that these plume droplets can travel, Microban® evaluated the ability of a fluorescent dye to be dispersed by the toilet flushing.
Read more about how using a toilet containing an antimicrobial preservative technology to provide built-in antimicrobial product protection, along with a consistent cleaning regimen, you can help to inhibit the growth of microbes that can be released in the air during a flush, keeping your bathroom surfaces cleaner in between cleanings.
