Sanitation taken for granted

-A A +A

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

SANITATION and hygiene in establishments have never been given importance considering that illness is prevented by good hygienic practices.


Some shopping malls have aggressively maintained well-scented and clean toilets. Other shopping destination owners though never care much about having their toilets well-tiled and good running water. It is for you to see and experience, said a shopper from Sta. Clara Subdivision.



What is City Health Office doing about maintaining clean toilets in establishments required to get sanitary permit? Is the permit for revenue sake or is it to regulate and ensure that toilets are in the correct hygienic condition, asked a salesman from Villamonte.


Some restaurants do not even provide toilet paper or container for waste disposal, an insurance agent quipped. They only care about the food sales but not sanitation. I hope their kitchen floors are also clean, he added.


In some prestigious malls, there are special comfort rooms or rest rooms where you could really get comfort or rest a bit with available sofa sets, fresheners, soap, tissues, napkins and more with just a meager fee. This is a good move so that shoppers feel that indeed the mall owners take care of their shoppers. If this is the case, then truly the toilet facility can be tagged as rest or comfort rooms. Without those comforts, please tag them as toilets, nothing more.
