Locker Room with Stalls and Partitions

Renovations to your commercial restroom can be time consuming and stressful, and they can require a lot of planning to make sure that your new project is perfect. One of the last things that business owners want to find out after completing a commercial restroom renovation is that the materials selected won’t hold up over time and will require maintenance, thorough cleaning, and even additional renovations.

Whether your bathroom renovations require new stall partitions, vanities, or shower stalls, don’t make the mistake of choosing the wrong products that won’t satisfy your needs. No matter what kind of renovations you’re make, read on for Scranton Products’ primer on commercial restroom renovations to learn how you can avoid some costly mistakes.

1. Bathroom Vanities Can Be Easily Damaged

Vanities in commercial bathrooms are a focal point and need to have a certain design aesthetic. But during renovations, business owners need to consider that vanities, especially sink vanities, will be used by patrons daily, making certain vanity products susceptible to wear and damage. Scratches, dents, delamination, and rust from sink water can be common on bathroom vanities[TB1] .

If this occurs on your new vanities because you chose an inadequate material during your renovation, business owners will have to frequently clean and pay for maintenance.

2. Bathroom Partitions Accumulate Germs

Partitions are the privacy barriers that your commercial bathroom needs, but they’re also home to various types of germs and bacteria. Because of how many people put their hands on the door handles and frames of your partitions, partitions harbor and transfer germs, creating an unsanitary environment for users.

In order for business owners to have the cleanest, germ-free commercial bathroom, you need to take your time and consider partitions that are germ resistant.

3. It’s Easy for Mold and Mildew to Grow in Your Shower Stalls

Areas of commercial restrooms that are high in moisture are perfect homes for mold and mildew growth. Since moisture and humidity produce mold and mildew, commercial restrooms with shower stalls are at high risk of growth. Mold and mildew can be harmful, and diligent removal and maintenance is required to try to prevent reoccurrence.

But shower stalls commonly feature steam from high water temperatures, so if business owners don’t take mold and mildew growth into consideration when renovating a commercial bathroom, it won’t be long before the bacteria takes over.

Is There a Material That Solves All of These Problems?

If you’re a business owner who is renovating your commercial restroom, you need to look into HDPE plastic materials. HDPE bathroom vanities are strong and built to resist scratches, dents, and rust. HDPE Hiny Hiders bathroom partitions are naturally germ resistant to help your bathroom stay sanitary. Even HDPE shower stalls are built to resist water and moisture penetration to fight off mold and mildew growth. All of these factors work to creating a naturally clean and sanitary commercial bathroom that won’t require frequent maintenance from business owners.
