Clean Soap dispensers are good for business
Newsletter Story image  
It should come as no surprise that restaurant patrons, industrial employees, and students all may view a restroom experience as an overall indicator of a facility’s level of excellence.
Shiny floors, tidy toilets, clean countertops, sparkling sinks, and gleaming mirrors give American adults feelings of happiness and satisfaction.
There is a significant impact of restroom conditions and the customer experience and their powerful potential to provide a competitive edge to restaurants. Most often the condition of a restaurant restroom reflects the overall cleanliness throughout the restaurant, including the kitchen. An unclean restroom may result in patrons not returning to the restaurant. However, half of them would also tell family and friends about the negative experience.
In an era where people are increasingly conscious of combating germs by proper handwashing, the cleanliness of a restroom directly influences the amount of time spent in the facility. Washing hands properly with soap and warm water at least 15 to 20 seconds, is the single most important thing we can do to keep from getting sick and spreading illness to others.
As half of the necessary elements required to properly wash hands, soap must always be made available. Wellplaced, wall-mounted dispensers, with an easy loading refill, makes product “on hand” for housekeeping personnel.
The dispenser should be regularly inspected by the housekeeping staff not only for the level of product remaining, but also to assure that the unit is in proper working order. Has product accumulated on the outer cover (shroud) of the dispenser? Has the cover been damaged? Cracks or other damage could cause improper alignment with the back plate mounted to the wall and thus, misalign inner components of the unit, causing soap to drip, leak, and clog.
A sealed dispensing system ensures a safe, clean, hygienic system with each refill. If the refill is a collapsible bag filled with product, consumers are assured that the bags are immediately sealed against potential contamination. Each bag comes with its own clean, fresh pump, virtually replacing the system each and every time housekeeping refills the dispenser. The same is true for soft plastic bottles fitted with individual pumps. The soap is filled in clean manufacturing conditions as specified by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the bottle sealed, and cases are packed.
Most consumers are unaware that the FDA regulates cosmetic products, including hand cleaners, with very specific standards. A sealed dispensing system assures that the soap maintains the strict specifications mandated by the FDA.
In a survey on school restroom cleanliness, unclean facilities result in 20 percent of middle and high school students avoiding school restrooms due to dirty conditions. Soap dispensers are often empty in schools due to a lack of funding, or dispensers have been removed from lavatories by acts of vandalism. Nearly 22 MILLION school days are missed each year due to the common cold! When one considers the financial impact of millions of sick days, the argument by school administrators that soap is too expensive to supply to students (and staff!) is quickly negated.
To summarize, what benefits will come out of facilities offering a more sanitary restroom experience that includes, among other housekeeping necessities, a filled, wellmaintained, and hygienic hand soap dispenser? Favorable reviews can be expected from their patrons, which may result in increased business. Happier employees who equate cleanliness with a company’s respect for their well-being can be expected. More efficient handwashing can be expected, which will lead to less absenteeism due to illness. All this from creating a pleasant handwashing experience in a restroom!
