Keeping your customers happy may be one of the biggest goals you strive for in your fledgling store. You may even go out of your way to ensure that every customer leaves your store with what they need. However, some things in your store could potentially affect your customers' shopping experience and keep them from returning, including unclean restrooms, low amenities, and bad plumbing. You can keep your customers happy by following the restroom tips below.
Keep Your Restrooms Clean and Attractive
The way your restrooms feel, look, and smell may have a big impact on your customers' shopping experience. Some customers not only want to find great sales in your store, they expect to see clean restrooms as well. Other customers may expect to find special features in your restrooms that make their lives easier, such as sanitary dispensers and self-flushing toilets.
A number of established retailers use cleaning services to keep their restrooms in top condition. If hiring a cleaning service isn't possible right now, have an employee check and clean your restrooms a couple of times during each shift.
In addition to maintaining clean and attractive restrooms, you also want to keep your plumbing system running properly.
Schedule a Commercial Plumbing Visit
Commercial plumbing systems can be complex and difficult to maintain without a professional plumber's assistance. Depending on the size of your building, you may have an extensive plumbing system traveling through it. The system may include multiple drainage lines, water pipes, and ventilation lines. If one of these lines breaks, it may affect the other lines as well.
A commercial plumber can help you detect problems in your toilets, sinks, and other plumbing fixtures before they make large messes in your store. For instance, if some of your toilets clog up repeatedly, they can eventually flood your store with dangerous sewer water. Sewer water can contaminant your clothes, shoes, and other valuable goods.
In addition, a plumber can help you make some of the changes mentioned in the previous section, including installing self-flushing toilets and faucets in your restrooms. Some plumbers may be able to use other methods to make your toilets self-flushing, including placing or installing motion sensors on your toilets. You may want to sit down with a commercial plumber and discuss your options before you make a decision.
Keeping your restrooms and plumbing system clean and functional is important. If you're ready to make improvements in your store's restrooms, contact a commercial plumber for more information.
