How to Make Your Commercial Restrooms Smell Better

One of the worst experiences you can have inside any business is walking inside the restroom and being met with a disgusting smell. No matter how great your experience has been with the business so far, your impressions of them will inevitably be changed, and not for the better.

If you’ve ever had this happen to you and had to suffer through using a smelly bathroom, then you know that you would never want any of your customers to go through the same thing inside your facility. But what are you doing to prevent that?

If you don’t have some sort of odor control plan in place, then your restrooms are at risk for smelling less-than fresh. Here are our best tips and tricks to make your restrooms smell better, all day, every day.

1. Make sure your restrooms are being cleaned often enough.

This includes daily cleanings, weekly cleanings and more in-depth cleanings on a regular and scheduled basis. One simple example is your bathroom trash cans – if they’re not being emptied at an adequate frequency, then waste can build up above the trash can lid, spreading odors throughout the room instead of keeping them contained until the trash is emptied.

2. Keep the right tools on hand.

Without the right cleaning implements, like sturdy commercial floor mops and cleaning chemicals, you won’t be able to deal with odors on a timely basis. Make sure that you always have what you need to reduce odors in your restrooms when you do notice them.

3. Use an air freshener service.

At Gorman Uniform, we provide air fresheners and dispensers for your commercial restroom that will seamlessly mask unpleasant odors. Our air fresheners work in small, medium and large areas and regularly for consistent odor control. We also offer an assortment of fragrances to choose from.

4. Make sure that your restroom is properly ventilated.

Proper airflow is essential to keep your restroom smelling fresh and clean. Without ventilation, odors will sit in your restroom for long periods of time. An easy way to deal with this is to open windows if your restroom has them, if not for the entire day then at least at different intervals throughout the day. Also, if your commercial restroom has a ventilation fan, make sure that you’re using it!
