Businesses are increasingly concerned about the environment and are seeking sustainable solutions to reduce their carbon footprint. However, one area often overlooked is the commercial restroom. By making simple yet effective changes, businesses can update their commercial properties and do wonders to help the environment at the same time. It is especially important for commercial properties as they receive high volumes of foot traffic that could significantly impact the environment. Restrooms, in particular, are a primary space that can easily be remodeled with the help of an expert. As a result, you’ll have a more efficient and eco-friendly restroom that can positively affect your business.
Understanding Waterless Urinals
If you haven’t considered a waterless urinal for your business before, you may have some misconceptions or might not understand its advantages. How do waterless urinals work? They use a specially designed drain system with a cartridge that traps sediment and holds a liquid that creates an odor barrier preventing sewer gasses from entering the room (which is what a p-trap does) as the urinal is used the urine passes through the liquid and down the drain. The liquid is called Blue Seal liquid and can be used in any manufactured Non-Water urinal. Unlike traditional urinals, these systems use zero water (except when it’s time to replace the cartridge) and are therefore more environmentally friendly. Since they do not require any flushing, they eliminate the need for flush valve maintenance and the worry of clogs and flooding.
Did you know you can save thousands of gallons of water every year by making the switch to a waterless urinal? The bottom line is they are efficient, sanitary, and affordable for a range of commercial properties, including hotels, schools, hospitals, and much more.
The Advantages of Hand Dryers Over Paper Towels
Hands dryers for commercial properties are becoming more commonplace than ever before. When you consider the impact you’re having on the environment, it makes sense to make the switch. Paper towels can only be used one time, meaning more waste piling up in landfills. Secondly, there are nearly zero emissions when you use a high-speed electric hand dryer. They only take a few seconds to dry your hands and keep traffic flowing smoothly in the restroom. With their quick operation and energy efficiency, hand dryers are a smart and sustainable choice for any commercial restroom remodel. Another one of the benefits of high-speed hand dryers over paper towels is the money you save. They use very little energy and are a good investment in the long run because of their durability and affordability. They cycle on when they detect hands and shut off when they are removed, which has an advantage over paper towels that are easily wasted when patrons use too many.
Steps to Remodel Your Commercial Bathroom
Commercial restroom remodeling can be a considerable undertaking, but it can dramatically enhance the functionality and appearance of your space.
First, your design should work around the specific needs and requirements of your business. Do you have high foot traffic, or are you a low volume establishment? What sort of fixtures will save you money in the long run? These are all essential considerations to make before moving forward with any commercial restroom remodeling project.
Secondly, choose environmentally friendly products such as flushless urinals and electric hand dryers to reduce water usage, waste, and maintenance. Always consider a reputable contractor with industry experience before starting your project.
