Any business that is open to the public should have the proper bathroom facilities to accommodate their patrons. This is an important part of the business establishment that must be given the proper attention.
Upgrading a Bathroom
The bathroom has to be in proper working condition. Often when a business takes over an older premise they may have to do upgrades for the bathroom. It means knowing what regulations have to be followed for an upgrade or new installation.
Assigning Bathroom Staff
If it is a small business entity it may mean that one of the employees will be designated to tending to the daily upkeep of the bathroom facility. They should understand that this is part of their job description. Another alternative is to rotate this assignment.
Some businesses hire professional cleaners to come in at the end of each day to clean the premises. This will include the bathrooms. It should be made clear what the expectations are for this.
Aside from proper daily cleaning of the bathroom it has to be kept supplied. There should be someone who will check on this several times a day. There needs to be someone in charge of ordering the supplies. So they are always on hand.
Know the Regulations
There are going to be specific health regulations regarding the bathroom. Every business owner must know what these are. If an inspection takes place one of the areas that will surely be inspected is the bathroom.
A clean and orderly bathroom speaks volumes about the business. A patron does not want to use this facility if it is not clean and well kept. This is especially true for public facilities that serve food. Patrons will judge these facilities by their cleanliness. If the bathrooms are not clean then it speaks poorly of the owner’s business ethics.
