Countless medical studies have documented the rampant spread of threatening bacteria and disease through cross contamination of door handles, particularly in public restrooms. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 40 million Americans get sick every year from bacteria that spreads from hand-to-hand . This is due to the increased frequency, number, and strain of the contaminants due in part to the presence of fecal matter. For YOUR BUSINESS, a positive PUBLIC IMAGE depends upon satisfied customers. Frankly, your BOTTOM LINE depends upon it.
