4 Myths about Toilet Odour

For most users, the initial reaction to resolving a bad odour is to musk them with fragrances. However, this musking technique usually is not able to control or eliminate the odour problem. Despite multiple additions and fragrance layering, we end up spending more time and investment with less fruitful outcome. Not understanding the root cause of odour development, would also means not applying the right solution to the problem.

Myth number 1- The toilet smells bad despite flushing for many times

Do you realise that no matter how many times the toilet bowl is being flushed, the bad smell stays and lingers? This is because encrustation resulting from long-term bacteria and germs build-up can cause odour. Applying sanitiser with enhanced formula to eliminate bacteria and leaving a protective layer on urinals and toilet bowls can help control odour in your washrooms. Therefore the root of the problem has to be solved first to tackle bad smells effectively.

Myth number 2- Sanitary waste bins are always smelly

Some washrooms are not equipped with appropriate sanitary units or adopt regular and frequent sanitation and cleaning. Over time, the disposed sanitary waste might leave unpleasant foul smell if they are not cleared; worst of all, some units are not secure with a lid, thus exposing these bacteria and odour in the cubicle. A non-touch feminine hygiene unit that is designed with anti-bacterial technology and contains environmentally-friendly “BioSach” is able to address unpleasant odour effectively. The sanitary bin that you should know today is not always smelly.

Myth number 3- Washrooms without air conditioning are worse

Ventilation and open-concept washroom is a common washroom challenge, and most basic Air Fresheners might not refresh the washroom with a nice fragrance to control odour in a long term and consistent manner. A different solution with Premium Scenting can be recommended to diffuse scents effectively and consistently in a wide coverage area.

Myth number 4- Old toilets definitely smell bad

Infrastructure gaps and old facility structure can create drainage, sewage and piping disorder over time. Blockages, chokes and corrosions can emit bad odour as a result. It is important to address your drainage issues to avoid potential incidents or burst pipes or overflowing of waste water into your premise. Drainage solutions and inspection services must be done to overcome your drainage challenges.

Some odours are caused by poor washroom hygiene habits that cause accumulated build-up of uric acids, bacteria, dirt and grime on the floor, particularly around the urinal area. This can cause offensive bad smell and result in yellow stubborn stains. Deep Cleaning service can be applied to resolve stain removal, odour elimination and reduce cross contamination risks in the washroom. 

At the end of the day, it is not about how old the washroom facility is, but about addressing correctly the root of the odour issue, whether it is from the toilet bowl, sanitary bin or drainage system.
