Smelly washrooms cost contracts

There are many barriers to effectively keeping washrooms clean and fresh-smelling.

No matter how regular the cleaning schedule, airborne bacteria quickly builds up in enclosed spaces and the resulting growth can cause stubborn smells that are extremely difficult to eliminate. Often the result is that cleaning staff are blamed, accused of not doing a thorough job when in actual fact the building itself can be contributing to persistent bad odours. Poor building maintenance means hard to reach areas such as cracks in silicon and tiles can become hot spots for bacteria. These then create pockets of bad odour that are very difficult to clean so the smell lingers. The blame gets placed on cleaning staff, resulting in the cleaning company’s contract being put in jeopardy, when the maintenance of the building is beyond their control.

When persistent bad odours linger, many try to mask them with fragrances or sprays – but this is obvious to many and bad odours have a way of permeating the air or combining with the artificial scent to make the room even more unpleasant to be in.

AirSteril’s solution to all of this is their air purifying hygiene units, which eliminate airborne bacteria by disrupting their DNA with ultraviolet light. AirSteril disinfects and sanitises the air, along with all exposed surfaces 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Unfortunately, another burden of cleaning companies is rising staff costs. Since many contracts began, National living wage has increased, alongside pension costs, putting considerable extra strain on these businesses. When all of the surfaces are sanitised 24/7 by AirSteril technology you can reduce your cleaning cycles confident in the knowledge that washroom hygiene won’t be compromised.

Independent laboratory tests have proven that within five minutes of exposure AirSteril eliminated up to 98.11% of airborne bacteria and viruses. Within one hour up to 59.47% of surface bacteria and viruses, including MRSA, were also eliminated. (Full Health Protection Agency Laboratory Report available upon request.)

AirSteril don’t just promise odour elimination, they guarantee it or your money back.*
