Washroom Odour! Mask It OR Eliminate It At Source?
Washroom odour is one of the top issues encountered by housekeeping services and corporates while maintaining public restrooms. One of the most common practices is to use strong air fresheners to mask the odour, albeit temporarily. While strong air fresheners do not solve the problem, they do cause unnecessary indoor pollution.
Washroom odours are complex and in most cases, it could be due to reverse gases from uric acid scaling in sewage lines that accumulate over a while. Issues of this nature can never be masked but must be treated at the source.
The solution developed by Organica Biotech
For over two decades, Organica Biotech Pvt. Ltd. has been committed to building a sustainable future for the planet by tackling problems related to environmental pollution and waste management.
Its trailblazing approaches have led to the continuous development of sustainable, innovative and future-ready solutions. One such avenue has been the development of sustainable and 100% nature-derived hygiene solutions. One of their greatest breakthroughs has been developing a novel mechanism to treat washroom odour at the source.
Its Washroom Odour Control Solutions are equipped with Molecular Sponge Technology™ a carefully designed blend of odour-neutralising plant-derived medicinal oils along with highly effective enzymes that act on odour molecules in two steps: Adsorption & Neutralisation.
This solution has been adopted in many commercial establishments. Most recently, this was implemented at a reputed 750-bed Multi-Specialty Hospital located in the western suburbs of Mumbai.
About the Case:
This leading hospital chain was facing terrible washroom odour issues and the housekeeping team was trying hard to resolve the same. Over 3 months the team at the hospital tried multiple interventions like the installation of fragrance diffusers, drain unclogging and chemical cleaning of drain lines. Eventually, none of these addressed the issue of stinking washrooms.
The Admin team contacted the OB Care Professional team and asked for a solution to the problem. The team from OB Care Professional inspected the washrooms and identified the following areas that could be contributing to the washroom odour:
- Foul reverse gases from the nahani trap.
- The STP-treated water being used in the flush systems was improperly treated and had a bad odour.
- The smell from urinal drains.
- Clogging issues in urinal drain lines.
- Exhaust issues in a few washrooms.
The principal cause for poor washroom ambience was due to the reverse gases that were coming from the nahani trap and the urinal drain lines. This odour intensified with urine spills and inadequately treated STP water being used in the washroom.
To resolve the issue, the OB Care Professional team recommended the following protocol:
1) OB Care Professional FlushFree™ Urinal Spray – To be sprayed every 2 hours on urinals and surrounding areas.
Benefit – OB Care Professional FlushFree™ Urinal Spray helps in preventing the emanation of the foul odour from urinal walls and drain lines.
2) OB Care Professional Urinal Drain Cleaner – To be used end of every day for one week, and then once every week.
Benefit – OB Care Professional Urinal Drain Cleaner breaks down uric acid deposits on the internal walls of pipelines.
3) OB Care Professional Toilet Bowl Cleaner –To be used instead of a chemical-based toilet cleaner.
Benefit – OB Care Professional Toilet Bowl Cleaner cleans efficiently without causing micro-erosions on your toilet bowl and urinal surface, unlike chemical cleaners, thus preventing the formation of safe havens for odour-causing germs
4) OB Care Professional Washroom Cleaner & Odour Eliminator – For cleaning washroom floors and other sanitaryware.
Benefit – OB Care Professional Washroom Cleaner & Odour Eliminator provides a deep and thorough cleaning with its potent enzymatic blend, leaving your washroom floors with a sparkle and lasting shine.
OB Care Professional team was given one washroom as a pilot and 4 weeks to solve the problem. Within the first 4 days, there was a marked change in the washroom atmosphere, the severe problem of the odour was reduced and within 15 days the washroom odour had been eliminated.
Since the pilot was successful, all the washrooms in the hospital started using OB Care Professional Washroom Odour Control Solutions.
