With thousands of hotels, restaurants, and other businesses in the hospitality and service industry, customers have many options when it comes to spending their hard-earned money for comfort. While product quality, customer service, and fuel prices can influence a customer’s decision and their satisfaction, other aspects of the business also have a significant impact on their experience.

Cleanliness is Next to Success

A clean bathroom, for instance, can make or break your business. As the owner or manager, you do not need studies or surveys to know that unclean restrooms are a major turnoff and can even be deal breakers for patrons. Your dirty restroom can be a main topic of conversation when customers tell their friends about your establishment. In addition, customers may equate the cleanliness of your bathroom with your entire business.

Restroom cleaning and maintenance programs are a great way to differentiate your business from your competitors as well.

Cleaning Protocols and Cleaning Supplies

To make sure your restroom is clean, start establishing cleaning protocols. Implement a daily cleaning schedule and provide a checklist for your janitors or employees tasked with the cleaning. Once you establish the policies, purchase products that can effectively support the program.

It is important to choose the right mix as well and combine essential restroom supplies, such as toilet paper, soap, and hand towels. Make sure to select cleaning tools and products that protect, maintain, and deep clean the surfaces.

These things may be quite costly and can make up a huge chunk of the miscellaneous part of your budget, but it will be worth it. A good tip in reducing your expenses is to work with a wholesale distributor of cleaning supplies, such as Jasco Distributing.
