Most businesses know that it’s important to keep things looking clean and tidy, and they wouldn’t be caught dead without the entrance and high traffic areas looking pristine. But what about the bathrooms? If these fall under the category of “out-of-sight, out-of-mind,” you may want to consider enlisting some janitorial services.

According to a study by Zogby International, 80 percent of customers would not re-visit a food establishment if the bathrooms were found to be unclean. 80 percent! And that’s not just avoiding the bathrooms, they will not set foot in the door of the business again!

Customers are serious about their clean bathrooms, so it’s time you get serious about cleaning yours. Not a restaurant? It doesn’t really matter. Whether you’re a medical office, an insurance company, or a retail location, your bathrooms give off an indication of the quality of your business, so make sure they appear, and smell clean.

There are a couple things you can do to keep your bathrooms tidy. First, install new, efficient hand dryers. Not only are they more sanitary, but paper towels usually end up overflowing the garbage can and land all over the floor. If things get busy and you can’t get in there to empty the garbage you don’t have to worry about a mountain of trash getting out of control.

Secondly, install automatic air fresheners. Some have deodorizers hooked right up to the toilets that spray with every flush, or you could invest in some air fresheners that let out a puff of scented air every few minutes. Customers don’t want to walk into a bathroom and smell, …well, …a bathroom.

Third, hire janitorial services for your bathroom. Don’t let cleaning the bathrooms become an afterthought. By hiring this service out, you’ll have the peace of mind that the bathrooms are being thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis.
