For several years, the lack of public restrooms in Washington, DC has been a point of frustration for tourists and commuters throughout the district. Especially for those with a higher need for frequent restroom access, this problem has demanded a solution beyond construction, as local businesses are now involved through incentive and need.
Involvement of Local Businesses
While allowing public access to their restrooms is often unfavorable for local business owners, this new bill spins the appeal of keeping their restrooms open with a monetary incentive. With this, the bill states that such an incentive will soon be established by the Mayor of DC in an effort to coax local business owners into making their restrooms accessible to the public without charge as part of a solution. By doing this, the city will be able to utilize existing resources while also making efforts towards creating new restrooms for additional use.
Effects of Public Access
Although an increase in public restroom access is an excellent solution to the problem, it also increases the demand for advanced sanitary measures in order to maintain a consistent level of hygiene for these facilities. Upon its inception, this bill has spurred concerns from public service representatives surrounding the logistics of maintenance and security measures for existing public facilities around the city. The same concerns may also apply to business owners who are now concerned about the higher levels of foot traffic in their stores and restrooms, and their ability to maintain the sanitation of their facilities with their own resources alone.
Professional Service to the Rescue
This solution involving the use of local businesses is a practical one for solving this issue in the city, however next steps should be taken with care. While there may be an influx of traffic to their restrooms, these businesses and municipal facilities can maintain their restrooms by trusting the job to skilled professionals with the proper tools needed to sanitize fixtures and refill supplies. In doing this, business owners can ensure the highest standards of sanitation, disease prevention, and customer service by upholding the quality of their facilities in the best possible manner. Not only will their restrooms be well maintained and sanitized, but the impressive upkeep of their facilities will leave a lasting impression on anyone who enters their store.
