In fact, research shows that guests will spend more money if they use nicer and cleaner public toilets. Of course, there are the basics you have to provide, but going the extra mile to create a better washroom experience is something everybody will appreciate and will lead to repeat custom and positive word-of-mouth. Remember, there are many washroom elements that people have come to expect such as toilet roll or soap, but what about other essentials you may not have thought about before?

Unpleasant odours dominate the environment they’re in. A washroom with a bad smell will leave a negative impression regardless of the other facilities available. Commercial air fresheners, in addition to regular cleaning, ensure your washrooms never exude the kind of uninviting smell that’s going to put people off. Spending any amount of time in a space with a bad odour can increase employee stress and give the impression you don’t care about their welfare. Investing in high-quality fragrance delivery technology helps to ensure any bad smell is dealt with quickly.

Never underestimate the importance of convenience in your business washrooms. Door hooks are a small investment but ensure comfort and convenience as employees and visitors have somewhere safe and dry to put their coat, bag or anything else whilst using the facilities.
Toilet roll dispensers
While toilet roll dispensers may seem an obvious choice for any washroom, there are bound to be times you’ve entered a business washroom and found loose toilet rolls lying around. This doesn’t create a good impression and suggests an organisation’s lack of care or thought when it comes to hygiene and cleanliness. Toilet roll dispensers come in a vast range of styles and types to suit any washroom and they don’t have to be a significant expense.

Urinals are a space saving and cost-effective addition to any male washroom. They are hygienic in their hands-free design and can be made even more hygienic with the addition of urinal screens. Urinal screens combat bad odours, maintain their condition, ensure they smell fresh and minimise the risk of splash back. Splash backs can not only be messy for individuals, but can contribute to damage and deterioration to the floors and surrounding areas, so a solution for keeping these under control is in demand. Urinal screens can also trap any additional debris that may be dropped, such as chewing gum, minimising the risk of blockages and the repair bills that come with them.

This promotes a more hygienic experience and shows visitors and employees your commitment to their health.
