Bathroom Odor, Bad for your Nose… Bad for Business.
As a commercial business owner, you take pride in your business and the success you are experiencing. But there may be one area you wish you could improve… The bathroom odor!
Why does my bathroom smell?
You know it’s there, your customers know it’s there. You seem to have tried everything, various air fresheners, urinal biscuits, cleaning schedules and a myriad of cleaning liquids, to no avail. The problem is, you are missing the problem! It is your floors, your tile and grout floor.
And it is not just the obvious reason or the errant splashing, everything your clients come in with on their shoes is transmitted to your floor.
In a study at the University of Arizona, researchers found that bacteria live longer on our shoes than in other places.
“As we walk, we constantly pick up new debris that feeds the growth of more bacteria. The researchers tested to see if bacteria on shoes would transfer to the tile floors in a house. More than 90 percent of the time it did.” – ABC News Consumer Report – ‘How dirty are your shoes?’
You see as guests use your facility, the more contaminated your floors become. If your grout is not sealed these bacteria get worked into the grout as well as cracks in the tiles. Add the occasional errant splash of urine and the new debris from shoes feeding the bacteria growth for a few days or weeks, and you now have bathroom odor.
What can be done about bathroom odor?
We have a solution for your bathroom odor problems, Ultra Durable Technologies, Inc. (UDT) EPIC Tile & Grout System.
The first step is to deep clean the tile using UDT ULTRA Deep Clean, which was designed to aggressively attack bacteria and soils without damaging or etching tile or fixture surfaces.
Step 2 will eliminate stained and dingy grout lines leaving the bathroom a better than new look. UDT Grout Colorant will penetrate the existing grout lines to quickly rejuvenate and recolor while still retaining a “natural look”.
Finally, the most important step is to seal the tile and grout surface using EPIC High-performance Floor Finish. EPIC will create a protective film over a tile and grout surface, which will prevent soil and debris from feeding bacteria growth. The bacteria that causes odor and discoloring of your tile and grout. Using this process, your facility can expect to achieve truly “Ultra Durable Floors“.
Now that the bathroom odor is gone…
Ongoing maintenance is very simple. Regular sweeping and damp mopping with a pH neutral cleaner or ozonated water is all that is required to keep your floor looking and smelling great.
