Cost Cutting Ideas For Your Business

Cost Cutting Ideas For Your Business

Are you looking to cut costs within your business? Well, you’ve come to the right place as we have four ways you could save money and it’s easier than you think. And it all starts in your washrooms!

With us at Absolute Hygiene Solutions, we can reduce your water and electricity bills by offering innovative and most importantly, efficient workplace services, that not only save you money (in some cases, dramatically!) but that also help to save our environment.

Think of how many visitors your washrooms get each day and then think about how many times the hand dryers are used or how often the toilets and urinals are flushed or how many times water is left running.

You can probably begin to see where your money is being drained (see what we did there!)

Below are the key areas where your money is being spent and how our products and services can help save you money in your business.

Change Your Taps

Hand washing is very important but sometimes in the workplace or public washrooms water is left running long after you’ve washed and dried your hands.

Introducing the Pushatap – the only push tap to have full flow and running time control saving you 85% on your water usage!

Plus, there is no installation costs involved as it converts your existing tap quickly into a highly efficient delay tap.

Get Rid of the Paper Towels

Surprisingly, paper towels cost you more money a year than a good, effective hand dryer. Plus, swapping to a hand dryer reduces soggy towels on the floors or other mess in the washroom.

Compared to your conventional hand dryer on average you could be spending £106.20 per hand dryer per year but with a Fast Dryer it could only cost £19.20 per hand dryer, per year. That’s an amazing £87.00 saving per annum*.

Our AHS Fast Dry and Jet Air are very cost effective and save up to 80% on energy as well as reducing carbon emissions.

Reduce Your Water Usage

Whether you’re a small business or a big company you could be using more water than necessary.

Typically, one urinal, without water management uses 315,000 litres of fresh, drinking water per year.

What does 315,000 litres of water look like?

3939 bath tubs

10 petrol tankers

15,750 water cooler bottles

4848 washing machine cycles

9004 showers

And that is just one urinal – you probably have more! 

With an AHS Water Management System it reduces the flushing time to once per hour and even stops completely when the building is unoccupied, meaning your urinal will flush only 13,140 litres of water per annum. That’s saving a massive 301,860 litres of water a year, per one urinal. 

Similarly, when people wash their hands the taps may continue running long after your hands have been washed and dried. With a Pushatap we quickly convert your existing tap into a highly efficient delay tap which could save you 85% on your water usage!

This is one of the simplest ways to reduce your carbon footprint.

Make Your Waste Go A Long Way

It’s important that offensive waste is handled and disposed of the right way otherwise you could face a substantial fine. We offer complete waste management, from providing sanitary bins to disposing of the waste, so you can be assured your meeting legislative requirements, avoiding a hefty fine and doing your bit for the environment.

Here at AHS we’re committed to your welfare and the environment, that’s why we use the Waste to Energy disposal method. A shocking 80% of waste collected is landfilled but we incinerate all the waste we collect and are able to supply steam and hot water to hospitals or district heating schemes.
