The impact of Coronavirus is still being felt. It’s been a tough couple of years for businesses and the future is still uncertain. You may feel like the state of customer or staff toilets is the last priority for 2022 – there are bigger, more important things to worry about and spend precious finances on.
But you’d be wrong.
The importance of public confidence should not be underestimated. And in an anxious world, with people understandably concerned about the spread of germs and viruses, offering modern, clean and comfortable toilets could be the smartest business move you ever make.
Here the team at M&P Fittings, explain why.
Why spend money on toilets?
We’ve talked before about the need to keep toilets up to date and how improvements – no matter how small – are always a positive step forward.
Just some of the ways a modern bathroom can benefit business, include:
– Enhance your image
– Increase customer numbers through the door
– Create a positive work environment for staff
– Save money in the long run
But it’s more than that. It’s about building public trust and confidence too.
What can you do?
So how do you make sure your toilets are up to scratch? First and foremost, make an objective appraisal of your current set-up. How do things stack up? It could be that a full-scale refurbishment is the answer. But in many cases, this isn’t necessary.
Improvements can include:
· Replacement cubicles
This could be a full refit – perhaps upgrading to a more premier unit – or simply a case of replacing damaged boards. Whatever you need, you’re sure to find it within our cubicle range with traditional or budget cubicle options available, right through to premier cubicles.
Cubicle panels can be a quick and easy way to refresh the feel of commercial bathroom space. And thanks to the extensive range of panel colours and materials, you’re sure to find something to suit your business perfectly.
· Investing in vanity units
Vanity units don’t just tidy things up and make a commercial bathroom look smart, they help to reduce the number of places germs can lurk too.
By covering over pipework, you eliminate awkward areas that are difficult to keep clean and streamline surfaces for optimal hygiene levels.
· Ensuring hands can be properly dried
A great way to boost cleanliness is to provide effective hand dryers and paper towels. Wet hands not only pick up germs more readily than dry, but the process of drying can help to banish any lingering germs or bacteria. Meaning dry hands are clean hands. Important then to ensure you provide adequate means to dry hands thoroughly.
· Increasing inspection rotas
All the new fixtures and fittings in the world won’t help if your toilets aren’t kept well stocked with supplies and regularly cleaned.
Levels of soap, toilet roll and paper towels all need to be regularly checked, with frequent assessments of the cleanliness too. Any issues should be remedied immediately.
· Adding home comforts
With many people back working from the kitchen table people quickly get used to their home comforts. So don’t forget to add a few little home-from-home touches to enhance comfort levels and help to ease any anxiety about using public toilets.
Small things like fragrant air fresheners and fresh flowers can all make a big difference to how your toilets are perceived. Read ‘Easy ways to add home comforts to your toilets’, for more ideas.
