Life is full of little details which need to be taken care of to help us get through the day. Failure to do so – even in the simple things – can create havoc in the day to day lives of the people who work, live, and play in your building.
One of the little details that many of these occupants fail to appreciate until they are forced to go without is toiletry supplies such as soap, paper, or air fresheners. Force people to go without their soap and toilet paper for even a short length of time and you will likely soon experience the veritable mob – complete with pitchforks – outside management’s door demanding compensation for the injustice and indignity.
Guests of hotels in particular won’t remember the experience on the merits of the toiletries but you can be sure it will be firmly ingrained if the service in such matters is not up to scratch (and they’ll be sure to tell all of their friends). When it comes to hotels no expense should be spared in the quality of the toiletry supplies as they all add to the perceived quality of the overall service.
Toiletry supplies therefore need more consideration then you may have first thought as your reputation may be at stake. Not only do you want top quality supplies for your patrons but in this day and age it’s always a good idea to go eco-friendly and biodegradable. The majority of the population will notice and appreciate the effort.
It’s no good to have top quality toiletries if they continuously run out so you and your supplier will need to work out an optimum schedule. Depending on the type of building you may need a 7 day a week schedule – typical of buildings dealing with travelers and tourists. A building which houses a more mainstream business, or businesses may have a less rigid schedule and only need a service that operates during normal business hours such as from 9 am to 5 pm 5 days a week.
Another item to verify is that the supplier you are dealing with is the one who is going to be doing the supplying. Many supply type businesses contract out various parts of their service to third parties. It’s always best to find out if this is the case and if they do then you may need to check that the third party is going to satisfy your needs.
