Understanding Industrial Equipment and Our Manufacturing Legacy

I'm Sandra Adams, a blogger and enthusiast of many eclectic targets, including pottery and industrial equipment and supplies. I've traced my family tree as far back as I can go and there is not one moment where my family hasn't been involved in manufacturing. My dad worked as a mechanic repairing industrial machinery and if it wasn't for me, he wouldn't have anyone to pass down his knowledge to. I've always wanted to know what my dad was up to, so I'd ask him what he did everyday. I've always been really curious and this has lead me to develop a really strong understanding of industrial equipment. My love for industrial equipment hasn't waned and now I feel like sharing this knowledge with others. I've created this blog for this exact purpose.

Who Wants To Shop At A Small Business With A Gross Bathroom?


One of the biggest turnoffs for any customer visiting your place of business is discovering that the bathroom facilities are dirty or malfunctioning. This lack of attention in your bathroom sends a message to your customers that you do not care about their comfort or safety. And in return your customers will show you this discomfort by no longer shopping at your small business!

The good news is that there are some very simple things that you can do to ensure that your bathrooms will be known as the cleanest on the block. This reputation is sure to bring your business additional sales.

Bathroom Facility Cleanliness

One of the first things your customers will notice is if your bathroom is dirty. Not only do you need to ensure that the counters and toilet are clean, but you should also pay special attention to:

  • floor cleanliness
  • baseboard cleanliness
  • hand prints and dirt on walls
  • spots on mirrors
  • graffiti in stalls

In addition, you should make sure that you provide an ample amount of available toilet paper and paper towels for your customers to use. A nice added touch is to also supply a bottle of hand lotion.

Bathroom Facility Plumbing Function

If you have ever been sitting on an automatic toilet that flushed and gave you an impromptu cold shower, then you realize how important it is that your toilets function correctly. You also want to make sure that turning on the water in the sink doesn't result in water spray landing on your shirt, rather than in the sink where it belongs.

If you find plumbing problems in your business bathroom, then you should hire a professional plumber to come out to your location and fix anything that is not working perfectly. If you have old toilets, then you might want to choose to replace them with lower water use models. Additionally, you may also want to replace any worn looking faucets or sinks that are stained. Try to look at your bathroom from your customer's perspective and make everything look as brand new and clean as possible. 


By taking the time to keep your small business's bathroom clean and in working order, you are continually sending a message to your customers that you value their health and welfare. In turn, your customers will reward your business by stopping in often, and by telling their friends about your clean facilities for public use. If any of your plumbing is malfunctioning, then you should contact a licensed plumber or speak with a sales representative at your local commercial plumbing supply company.
