Your business’ reputation doesn’t stop at the washroom door. Toilet facilities are a reflection of how well an organisation is run and, as such, should be kept clean and well-stocked.
It’s not an easy job that in most cases requires attention throughout the day and unhindered access to soap, cloths, mops and other cleaning products.
However, demonstrating this care for staff, customers and visitors by providing washroom essentials and clean sanitary equipment really does make them feel valued and gives your business a good name, so it’s worth the effort.
Constant restocking of sanitary products, toilet roll, handcare products, vending machines and air fresheners is a time-consuming aspect of washroom maintenance. In premises with several washrooms, containing lots of different pieces of sanitary equipment, like hand dryers, hair dryers and various dispensers, organising this can take up a large chunk of a site manager’s day.
Which is why it’s so important to ensure that stocks of all washroom essentials are readily available so that your commercial washrooms don’t become a deal breaker when it comes to signing a contract or gaining repeat custom.
What makes good commercial washrooms? Here are just a few of the washroom essentials that will help you make the right impression.
Ensuring you have a good supply of these in your washroom and stockroom, or can acquire them swiftly from a trusted consumables supplier like phs Direct, will make your job in the washroom a lot easier, allowing you to dedicate time elsewhere in the building.
Cleaning your washroom
Regular washroom cleaning helps keep grime and bad odours at bay. Cleaning should also be carried out to keep health and safety hazards at bay, such as viruses and bacteria, and slippery water spills.
You can even choose dispensers with special finishes to complement washroom décor.
Air fresheners that work
Keeping your washroom clean and well stocked with toilet rolls and sanitary products is just half the job. Bad odours can ruin washroom visits and leave a lasting impression on users. Make sure that when you are buying your mops, cloths and wipes that you don’t forget air fresheners. Using essential oils and propellant-free dispensers that can co-ordinate with other sanitary equipment will make every trip to your commercial washrooms more enjoyable.
Don’t forget men’s washrooms
Men’s toilet facilities are a particular challenge. Blocked urinals caused by uric acid and limescale build up make a real mess and can be expensive to fix.
All these, the relevant consumables and other sanitary equipment designed to make a washroom visit altogether more enjoyable can all be ordered online at phs direct.
One thing that can’t be ordered online is the right staff to ensure that all of your washrooms are kept in top condition.
Training may be required so that all operatives are able to correctly clean and service your washrooms but by keeping store rooms well stocked with washroom essentials, your staff will be well-armed for the task.
