Eco-friendly Hand Dryers
Older models of hand dryers can be highly inefficient and if you haven’t replaced your hand dryers for a while, now may be the time to do. If your hand dryers are past their sell by date, they may break and this means you may have to call in for repairs and, even worse your washroom may be out of order while things are fixed. Opting for newer hand dryers can help your business provide a great customer experience while many modern models have been made with the environment in mind. New hand dryers can dry hands fast and use far less energy which can equate to big cost savings than older counterparts. Find out more by reading our ultimate guide to commercial hand dryers.

Automatic dispensers are not only more hygienic due to less person to surface infection transmission, but they can save you costs on washroom refills. Operated by infra-red sensors, touch-free dispensers such as this Auto-Hand sanitiser or Auto-Soap dispenser, provide just the right amount of soap to the user operated by an infra-red sensor. This leads to less waste and less product dripping on to surface tops in your washroom. Less waste = less refills = lower costs. It’s a great business decision.
In addition to hands-free dispensers, the presence of any sort of dispenser can help you save costs. Toilet rolls that are scattered on ledges in cubicles or soap bottles on the side can lead to users taking as much as they please while you may find you’re going through more toilet roll than you need as they end up on the floor! Proper dispensers are a cost-effective way of keeping products safe and secure. Studies have also shown that an effective dispenser will reduce the amount of toilet paper used.
Waste Disposal Bins
The lack of disposal bins for infant waste, sanitary or incontinence waste can lead to costly problems. Without a bin for safe and hygienic waste disposal, where does waste naturally end up? Down the toilet. This will mean you have to call out the plumber down the line resulting in unexpected bills. Don’t neglect to provide effective hygiene units. These days, there are a wide variety of options to suit all business requirements.
The True Value of Washroom Hygiene
The important thing to remember when are looking to save costs is the potential return from investing in washroom solutions. As hygiene is set to become more important, investing in solutions for enhanced hygiene can bring a number of benefits to your business including happier customers and employees, repeat visits from customers, positive word of mouth, greater productivity and reduced sick days.
