Why Are Restroom Odors so Strong and How Can You Remove Them?

A restroom containing bad odors can sometimes be viewed as more unsanitary that one packed with more germs. So, what causes these odors?

We’ve all been there–a public restroom that may appear well-maintained, but has unpalatable odors that make it virtually unusable.  Sometimes, the smell can be so bad it makes us gag; you can imagine what kind of message that’s giving your customers and employees!  A restroom containing bad odors can sometimes be viewed as more unsanitary that one packed with more germs.  So, what causes these odors?  And how can you eliminate them?  Read on to find out!

What causes restroom odors?

For the most part–and you could probably guess this–unpleasant odors come from fecal and urine matter.  There are several factors that play into this.  When a toilet flushes, it sprays this matter into the air, where it can then cling to the walls and floors.  If the walls and floor are not sanitized regularly, the matter can build up.  Not only does it encourage dangerous bacteria to grow, it also ends up causing a very unpleasant odor.  Another possibility would be your drainage system.  Sometimes, clogged drains can cause standing water, which inevitably creates a foul odor and can permeate the restroom.  Odors can sometimes  be covered up using everyday air fresheners, but that doesn’t attack the odor at the source.

How can you remove them?

To get to the root cause of persistent odors, Enviro Master Services attacks the buildup of bacteria and viruses by apply a germicidal spray to the toilets, urinals and sinks. This has a 7 to 9 day residual kill effect on germs.  We also offer a monthly deep power washing of the floors and walls with a powerful disinfectant.

Professionally administered air fresheners are the best option when it comes to public restroom transient odors.  Most aerosols simply cover up the smell with something artificial, and usually make the odor even worse.  Luckily, we offer a solution.  Our air freshener services can finally get rid of all those nasty odors you’ve been struggling with.  We use continuous fan air fresheners..
