Our sense of smell is something that can alert us to a problem, something unsafe to eat or fire. Smell also helps rekindle memories and recognise a familiar place. The sense of smell is not to be ignored, so if your office smells bad, there is a problem. Keep reading to find out what is making your office smell and how to fix it.
It can be difficult to recognise the smell is coming from your carpets, but they are often the culprit. With spillages, wet shoes, lots of traffic, there is lots of dirt and bacteria to be found in office carpets. This can be tackled by sprinkling bicarb of soda all over the area, leaving for at least two hours then hoovered up. This will break down stains and the components that cause the smells and will absorb any oils.
Sometimes even this wont get rid of all carpet smells, if this is the case our carpet cleaning service can help. We have all the equipment to shampoo your carpets and bring them back to life like new, no more smelly carpets.
Lots of employees eat at their desks, causing dropped food. This results in desks, keyboards, chairs and phones potentially with old food crumbs, sticky spillages and stale aromas galore.
The office microwave will also be leaving its own food smells, with heating up many many lunches, with spillages along the way. Eating in the canteen and not at desks will help with smells, this can’t always be adhered to so if you do have food spillages on desks try using vinegar to clean it. This can help with the smells.
Food being left around will certainly be a contributing factor. Encourage staff to clear away any unwanted food and to not leave it lying around the office and canteen.
Our office cleaning service will always benefit any busy office. Our fully trained office cleaning teams ensure all office equipment, desks, carpets and canteens are thoroughly cleaned. This is the best option to keep your office smelling clean and fresh.
Office kitchen sinks get a lot of action, therefore getting a little smelly is no surprise. With all those dishes being tackled sinks can easily get blocked. If your office sink is blocked or slow running, this will cause bad odours (and a smelly office!) To avoid a blocked sink remove all food debris, if this doesn’t help you can try pouring boiling water down it, then pour bicarb of soda down the plug and leave it to work. Then mix together vinegar with same amount of hot water and pour down. Run the tap to flush it all away and hopefully this should clear any blockages.
