Ways to Keep your Public Bathroom Smelling Fresh

Everyone has had the experience of needing a public bathroom, only to be nauseated by an unpleasant odor when they enter. The sheer number of individuals that avail themselves of public bathrooms can present special problems when trying to maintain cleanliness and eliminate odor.

One of the most prevalent problems is that the industrial strength products designed to eliminate odors are often part of the overall dilemma. No matter how meticulous cleaning staff may be, customers will perceive a bathroom as dirty if it’s smelly. Exacerbating the problem is a climate that’s warm and/or humid. Odors typically derive from an excess of bacteria that accumulates on walls, at the base of toilets and urinals, and drain problems. It’s not enough to simply clean toilets, sinks and mop the floor.

Use care when choosing cleaning products. Just because they clean doesn’t mean they kill bacteria, fungi or viruses. It also doesn’t mean they’re going to leave a pleasing scent when they’re used. Many cleaning products smell as bad – or worse – than the odors they’re designed to eliminate.

Air Fresheners/Deodorizers

There are a number of options for keeping bathrooms smelling fresh, one of which is recyclable gel air fresheners that can be hung or adhered to the wall. They work much the same as a car air freshener and are available in multiple scents. Deodorizing squares are another option, work especially well in men’s bathrooms, and are offered in dozens of fragrances.

Diaper Disposal Bags

Messy diapers are another source of odors in public bathrooms. Those can be tamed with the addition of a diaper disposal bag dispenser. Disposable diapers can be placed in the bags and disposed of without leakage or unpleasant odors escaping. They’re equally beneficial for those using cloth diapers to transport the diaper home for cleaning.

Surface Cleaners

Cleaning isn’t the same as disinfecting. Surfaces that are disinfected eliminate the majority of the bacteria that lead to unpleasant odors. Disinfecting wipes are more effective and economical than sprays and paper towels or cleaning rags and prevent the potential for re-contamination of surfaces.
