As you can easily imagine, nobody likes a dirty restroom - but even so it seems as if some restaurant owners may not completely understand the importance of cleanliness when it comes to their business.

How the Dirty Restaurant Restroom Can Cost
  Your Business

When a business serves food, its restrooms face a great deal of difficulties that make them much harder to keep clean. Traffic within restaurant restrooms is constant throughout the day, which means that without a repeated cleaning schedule, these areas can quickly turn from relatively clean to completely soiled.

When urine is allowed to puddle under fixtures, the uric acid and uric salts found in the urine can damage the floor finish or seep into grout, stone and wood floors, causing irreparable damage, significant bacteria growth and an odor problem. Additionally, puddles left on the floor aren't just unsightly and unsanitary, but they are also unsafe - users walking by can slip and fall on the wet floor.

With all these things in mind, keeping a restaurant restroom clean can be quite hard, but doing so is extremely important! According to a survey of 1,000 US adults - by Harris Interactive, summarized in Reuters - four out of five people would avoid a restaurant in the future in case they found a dirty restroom.

Another Harris Interactive poll, summarized in USA Today, has shown the new difficulties that businesses face in light of the rise of social media and online review websites. The survey found that 50% of people who encounter a dirty restroom would discuss it with friends and family. These type of reviews can cost a business customers before many of them even set foot in the door. So, basically dirty restrooms lead to lost businesses.

So, business owners who are serious about keeping their restrooms clean need to investigate a cleaning system that dispenses fresh cleaning solution in order to seriously get their restrooms clean.
