Your restrooms are an immediate reflection of your business. According to the 2017 Bradley Corporation Healthy Hand Washing Survey, 92% of Americans see a direct relationship between the quality of a company’s products and services and the quality of its restrooms.
Our franchisees can keep your restrooms smelling and looking clean. But most importantly, they make sure bathrooms are sanitized from top to bottom.
- Eliminating Odors - determining where the odor is coming from (drain, sink, urinal, light fixtures, ceiling) is key to determining what procedures are needed to eliminate the odor completely.
- Removing dirty grout and “five o’clock shadows” - traditional mop and bucket systems do a poor job of cleaning grout long-term. Mopping can also splash dirty water on baseboards and walls. This “five o’clock mopping shadow” smells bad and looks worse. By using specialized equipment to apply diluted cleaning solutions to floors in a low-pressure fan spray, and then rinsing surfaces and floors, the built-in power of the indoor pressure washer flushes soil out of the places mops can’t reach. The floor is then vacuumed dry, completely removing soils, moisture, and contaminants from all surfaces.
- Removing buildup of water and dirt on hard surfaces (sinks, fixtures, walls, partitions) - splashes on countertops and mirrors, or drips on walls by towel dispensers and dryers, leave unsightly marks.
- Our franchisees use a low-pressure spray to apply a cleaning solution to the walls and fixtures. After a few minutes, they use a rinsing spray to remove soil and bacteria, forcing the solution onto the floor where it can be vacuumed.
Why it Matters
Ever heard of the foot flush or elbow push? What about the pinky pull?
They’re avoidance techniques that people use to operate fixtures and open restroom doors with minimal contact. They use their feet to flush toilets, their elbows to flush urinals, and—if no paper towels are handy—they use their little finger to pull open doors.
Half of U.S. adults believe that unclean restrooms at a company reflect how the company is run or how it treats its clients. As a result, 56% say that if they encounter an unclean or unpleasant restroom, they’ll think twice before returning. (Source: 2017 Bradley Corporation Healthy Hand Washing Survey).
