The most obvious way to keep your building smelling fresh is through commercial cleaning, since the cleaner the building, the less likely it is to have an unpleasant odor. However, there are other steps you can take to help ensure your building smells fresh.
Keep the Front Rooms Fresh
If keeping things clean is the real trick to a good-smelling office, then it starts in the front of your building, and if applicable, especially in your reception area.
Keep sanitizing wipes near the front desk and encourage your receptionists to wipe down the counters, phones, and their keyboards frequently. Not only will this keep the building smelling fresh, it will also keep germs at bay!
Everyone has walked into a bathroom and been overpowered by an overly scented bathroom. Scent releasers, wall-mounted scents, plug-ins, unlit scented candles, sprays—they can all provide a pleasant scent for your bathroom, but use with caution!
When you’re looking for something to improve the scent of your bathroom, or any other space in your office, make sure you’re getting something that is the appropriate size and strength for the room in which you intend to use it.
Avoid stronger scents, opting instead for clean scents with words like “fresh,” “clean,” “simple,” and “linen.”
Check for Yourself
Over time, you get used to the smell of your office, so if you really want to know how it smells, pay attention when you walk in first thing in the morning or take a step outside, wait for 5 or 10 minutes, and then re-enter.
