Why You Should Renovate Your Commercial Restroom

Are you thinking about renovating your facility’s restrooms? Let us help you make the decision.

There are three primary reasons to renovate your restroom:

  1. Commercial restroom renovations can garner a high return on investment.
  2. A new, clean restroom can improve employee morale.
  3. An updated restroom makes a good impression on visitors.

And these are just a few reasons why a commercial restroom renovation may be a good idea. Below, we’ve outlined a few more reasons you should consider renovating your facility’s restroom.

1. Meet ADA compliance for public restrooms. 

Because  your restroom is open for use by the general public it needs to adhere to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements. If your facility was built or renovated prior to 2010 it likely does not meet ADA requirements for public restrooms. Any general contractor who is experienced in commercial bathroom renovations should be able to outline the criteria your restroom needs to ensure ADA compliance.

2. Improve your customers’ experience with a nice, clean restroom. 

According to a survey from Harris Interactive for SCA Tissue North America, 50% of customers who have a negative experience with a public restroom will tell their family and friends. And, 3 out of 10 of those who have a bad restroom experience will never go back to that location again. This makes it incredibly important to give your customers a good first impression with your restroom.

3. Increase staff morale with an updated look.

A clean, appealing restroom reflects how much you care about your working environment and those who work in your building. A restroom renovation can show your associates that you care for them and their well being while they’re at work.

4. Decrease the spread of germs with touch-free dispensers and fixtures.

Automatic dispensers and fixtures are designed to prevent contact between users and germs. Because users aren’t touching anything in the restroom you can significantly decrease the spread of germs throughout your facility.

5. Invest in touch-free faucets to increase energy efficiency. 

Touch-free faucets waste less water. These faucets dispense water only when a hand triggers the sensor. Because of this, there is less risk of accidentally leaving the faucet on or letting the water flow while lathering your hands with soap.
