Penny Wise And Dollar Foolish-Part 4

I’ve noticed a few public restrooms are notorious for not being cleaned on a regular basis but more importantly, they are often improperly stocked with toilet tissue.

Talk about penny wise and dollar foolish! If toilet tissue is unavailable, users will choose the next available option which is paper towels.

First, I can’t image paper towels being less expensive than toilet tissue. Second, regularly using paper towels increases the chance the toilet could eventually get plugged and have a plumbing issue. Not likely but possible. So property managers or maintenance supervisors, it’s not only important for restrooms to be regularly cleaned but also well maintained. Otherwise, this could potentially become a more expensive proposition in the future.
