As the world continues adapting to the ever-changing COVID-19 environment, the importance of maintaining clean and sanitized facilities has become paramount to offices, schools, restaurants, and all other commercial buildings. Customers are more likely to be loyal to businesses that have enacted additional precautions for the safety of their clientele. One way companies have adapted to this new environment is through the utilization of touch-free restrooms.
The popularity of touch-free or contact-free lavatories was already on the rise prior to the pandemic. Yet, as scientists continue to discover how transmissible the disease is, the importance of touch-free restrooms has become abundantly clear to large and small businesses alike.
Here we will discuss some of the advantages of having a touch-free restroom for your business:
Increased Cleanliness and Improved Sanitation
The first and most obvious benefit to having a touch-free restroom is the reduction in the number of germs that customers are exposed to. Touch-free toilets, sinks, soap dispensers, and paper towel dispensers reduce the likelihood of customer contamination due to physical contact.
High-touch areas often spread germs more easily between employees and customers. By removing the need to physically touch these appliances, you will mitigate the potential for employee illnesses due to viral and bacterial exposure and increase client confidence in your business’s sanitation policies. In fact, three in five Americans agree that utilizing automatic paper towel dispensers in public restrooms would improve their perception of the business’s cleanliness, according to a survey conducted by Sofidel.
Touching various surfaces like faucets, paper towel dispensers, and soap dispensers can be cumbersome to some of your customers. If someone is using their smartphone or carrying a handbag or briefcase, the added convenience of simply putting your hand in front of a sensor saves time and effort. In addition, touch-free restroom fixtures increase accessibility for customers suffering from mobility issues and have difficulty manipulating handles and knobs.
Touch-free restrooms also reduce water consumption and waste products. By utilizing sensor-controlled faucets, water is only being used while a customer or employee is actively washing their hands. Over time, the elimination of unnecessary water use can add up to significant savings on water usage, which is both good for the environment and your bottom line.
Touch-free soap and paper towel dispensers can also save you money by reducing product usage from customers and employees. With the ability to individualize soap and paper allotments, you can minimize soap and towel waste. As every business owner knows, resource management, even on a small scale, is critical to the company’s long-term success.
Both customers and employees can be demanding when it comes to bathroom amenities. From kicking toilet handles to pushing against faucets and soap dispensers, your restroom can sustain a lot of damage during use. Incorporating touch-free features can help reduce the likelihood of a client or employee being too rough with your restroom fixtures. This will improve the reliability and lifespan of all elements in your restrooms.
