Are smelly, unhygienic indoor play centre toilets harming visitors and business?

There are more than 600 independent indoor play centres in the UK. These facilities are big, bright (not to mention loud!) spaces for children to have fun in a safe, enclosed environment.

There is naturally a focus on making slides, ball pools and other indoor play centre equipment completely safe for children across a wide age range. But what about conditions in the toilet facilities?

Bacteria in the air and on surfaces within washrooms can affect the health and wellbeing of children, parents and staff, while using fragrances to deal with smells only masks the problem rather than removing it entirely.

The UK indoor play centre sector is an increasingly competitive market, with parents now spoilt for choice when it comes to entertaining their children. Owners and managers of these centres who have problems dealing with unpleasant odours in their toilets are concerned that visitors may be deterred and decide to try another centre. Meanwhile, those with clean and pleasant-smelling washroom areas are likely to attract more business through word of mouth and retain customers.

So how can inevitable germs and unpleasant odours in play centre toilets be controlled?

Introducing the innovative AirCare® system from Gibbons Ultraviolet Solutions. This revolutionary device uses the disinfecting power of ultraviolet C (UVC) light to kill germs, viruses and bacteria both in the air and on surfaces while removing odours at source – not merely covering them up.

AirCare® comprises a single easy-to-install unit which requires minimal maintenance and helps operators avoid the use of consumable fragrance cartridges and batteries.

This state-of-the-art technology enables indoor play centre owners and managers to:

  • Protect children, parents and staff from airborne germs
  • Remove rather than mask unpleasant odours
  • Improve public perception
  • Increase visitor numbers
