First impressions count, and the condition of your toilets says a lot about how you run your business.
Research shows that 50% of people would tell friends and family about a negative toilet experience and 46% would avoid going to an establishment based on a poor toilet review.Â So, with the cleanliness of your business’s toilet facilities being viewed as a reflection of overall quality standards, what are your toilets saying to your customers and employees?
In this blog post, we uncover how ourÂ specialist cleanersÂ effectively maintain the highest standards of toilet cleanliness and hygiene, and offer some tips on ensuring your facilities make the best possible impression.
How to keep your toilets facilities clean
Depending upon the level of traffic that your washrooms have to contend with, the frequency of cleaning required varies considerably. Whilst some office toilets can be well maintained through just â€˜spot cleaningâ€™ (where only specific soiled areas are cleaned), other high traffic washroom facilities may require scheduled cleaning throughout the day or a dedicated toilet attendant.
OurÂ specialist cleanersÂ are regularly trained in the latest cleaning and hygiene practices and we can advise on the most effective and cost efficient approach based upon your specific premises. A professional cleaning contractor should use a systematic approach when cleaning your facilities to maximise efficiency. (Imagine polishing the mirrors before washing the sinks, you would likely have to go back and remove splash marks). Also, a colour coding system should be used to ensure that equipment used in the cleaning of your toilets does not find its way into other areas of your building. After all, you wouldnâ€™t want the same mop or cloth used to clean your washrooms and your desk or kitchen.
Improving office hygiene
A 2015 survey of 100,000 people across Europe concluded that 62% of men and 40% of women do not wash their hands after visiting the toilet. With the majority of germs being spread through physical contact, especially via the hands, this statistic is worrying. Not only will unhygienic toilets leave a lasting impression on how clients think and feel about your company, poor hand washing practices could also cause germs to spread throughout your establishment and make people ill.
By ensuring that soap, warm water and hand drying facilities are always available, and by educating users through the use of awareness posters, we can help to reduce the spread of germs from the bathroom and in turn reduce instances of workplace sickness, saving your business money.
