There’s A Webcast For That

We all know that smelly restrooms are a big problem today — just as they have been for decades.

We also know that a large contributor to the malodorous nature of public rest, bath and shower rooms is bacteria lingering in grout lines.

Maybe the reason we don’t properly address specific restroom odor issues is because we just don’t understand how or why odors are caused:

  • An enzyme product can eliminate odors by literally eating the bacteria left on surfaces — but how?
  • A masking air freshener can combine with an existing fragrance and cause a smell that is more offensive than the one you initially attempted to erase — but why?
  • Tile and grout should be deep cleaned to help remove deeply embedded soils and bacteria — but when?

In light of the misinformation or general lack of insight surrounding the single largest source of complaints from building occupants and cleaning staffs alike, we have decided to consult with some industry experts and deliver to you a special webcast on controlling restroom odors.
