Public toilets are in the front line of public facing assets and, for reasons best known to teenagers and junkies, are the persistent target for vandalism and other anti-social behaviour.
The maintenance regime really starts therefore in the design and the cleaning of the toilet. Loose fittings, peeling walls, dirty floors and broken windows all encourage further deterioration. It is a generalisation, but a well maintained toilet is easier to keep in good condition and will be less liable to abuse than a poorly kept toilet.
Toilets are generally maintained by the same operator who is responsible for the cleaning. This is sensible at several levels:
Toilets which do not have a planned maintenance regime are more likely to fail.
Remote Monitoring - h2evidence MoxiHealthmatic’s h2evidence Moxi System is fitted into most of the toilets we manage. It provides valuable management information as well as reducing the costs of running the toilet.
All this information is accessible in real time and via the web. This creates an unalterable audit trail for all parties involved in the management of the toilet.
