Are you looking for ways to keep your work restrooms smelling clean and fresh? Pleasant-smelling restrooms go a long way to ensure a pleasant environment for both customers and staff to be in. Restroom smells, if left unattended, can begin to creep into other areas of your workplace. A clean restroom is going to be the first and best way to reduce those odors, so let’s take a closer look at how to reduce restroom odors at work.

How To Reduce Restroom Odors at Work

The best way to eliminate bathroom odors in your work location is with regular cleaning of your restroom toilets, sinks, counters, and floors. A regular maintenance check and light touch-ups will help keep your restrooms clean during the workday. If your office has a high volume of traffic, doing a restroom check every hour could be a helpful solution to keeping this area clean and odor-free. Less restroom usage can allow for fewer checks as long as odors remain at bay.

If restroom grime is left to accumulate over the days or week, smells will often soon follow. Cleaning up any urine and moisture on floors and in toilet areas, plus debris in trash cans, will be one of the best ways to assure your restrooms stay smelling fresh throughout the workweek.

Keeping Restrooms Odor Free

Odors in the restroom often can’t be avoided. If you have a clean bathroom and you are keeping it clean throughout the day, but you still have some odors occasionally, consider air fresheners to keep on hand. Provide a nice smelling air freshener in each restroom stall and at the sink counters. You can also install a permanent air deodorizer that sprays a microburst of fragrance periodically. It can be a nice addition to your restrooms to avoid relying on anyone to routinely spray a freshening product.

Cleaning your restrooms also means sanitizing and disinfecting to keep odors away. Using proper cleaning solutions will kill bacteria and germs that can cause smells to linger. Applying these solutions properly before wiping the restroom areas clean will allow these products to do their job, and provide a safe and hygienic workplace restroom.

Ventilation is another essential component to keeping your work restrooms odor-free. A well-working fan should provide good air circulation, remove odors, and help keep the bathroom space dry.

Restroom Odor Control

If you find you are doing all the right things to keep your restrooms clean but you still have odors that will not go away you might have some other issues.

  • Plumbing Leaks

  • Evaporation In Pipes

  • Clogged Drains or Venting

Reach out to your favorite plumber to double-check any of these areas. Then you can get right back to your regular cleaning schedule and maintenance, and find your work restrooms smelling their best. Combining these solutions above with cleaning your work bathrooms regularly should keep your restroom odors to a minimum.
