First off, I have worked at the same Italian restaurant for the past 3 years. We get good business and almost always good reviews. The staff is friendly and the food is delicious, but I continuously hear the same complaint at least two times a week; the restroom floor is always a mess filled with scattered paper towel and most of the time the paper towel machines are empty. Restrooms have a big impact on a customers experience at your business. If a customer feels like the restroom is dirty, they are more than likely going to feel the same way about your entire facility. There is always something you can do to fix that.
Hand dryers not only help keep your businesses restroom clean and mess free but also has savings of 95% in cost. The cost of paper is rising regularly while the cost of running a hand dryer can be as low as $0.18 per 1,000 hand dryings. The mess is a continuous problem and requires a large amount of extra cleaning time that is not necessary. Not only does your faculty have to spend more time on cleaning the restrooms but they also have to spend more money on purchasing more cleaning chemicals and more money on trash bags that need access changing due to paper towel usage. Hand dryers discourage vandalism, save trees and teach kids good hygiene.
The Extreme Air EXT by American Dryer only uses 540 watts, and costs about 18 cents to dry hands 1,000 times. The hand dryer will pay for itself in just a few months.
