Let’s play a game.
Why don’t you try searching for any hotel on booking.com and take a look at its reviews? We are sure that at some point you will find someone complaining about a bad smell in their room.
This complaint has happened at least once to anyone who runs a hotel or motel, even those who are most careful about cleanliness.
The reason is that it takes very little to create a bad smell in an enclosed space. And while they may get over a slight delay in checking in or other unforeseen events, your guests are unlikely to forget smelling a bad odor while trying to sleep.
This is also a problem for many other types of business – i.e.: any place where people stay indoors for long periods of time. Not just hotels, motels, and apartments, but also schools, nursing homes, gyms, offices, etc.
All of these businesses need to make sure their spaces are clean and fragrant every day.
Of course, you can’t work miracles, and everyone makes mistakes every once in a while. But with a simple odor fogger, you could make sure to eliminate all kinds of bad smells and leave a pleasant aroma in the air effortlessly.
Here are 5 reasons why you should include it in your cleaning tools.
What’s an odor fogger?
As the name suggests, odor foggers are a type of technology used for cleaning indoor spaces by producing a mist that neutralizes bad smells.
There are two types of them:
- ● ULV foggers, which can be used to nebulize products such as ozone, oxidizers, and disinfectants into the air;
- ● thermal foggers, which burn certain products to create smoke that destroys odors. Unlike ULV foggers they require very specific products. Both types have their pros and cons, but one thing is certain. If you run any business that takes place in an indoor space, a good odor fogger can make your life much easier. Here are 5 reasons why you should have one among your cleaning tools.
#1 It doesn’t cover odors, it neutralizes them
Sometimes, no matter how thoroughly you clean a place, you will still smell a bad odor. This happens because the agents that are causing it are still in the air or have been absorbed by the furniture or upholstery.
In these cases, you have to be very careful about what products you use to solve the problem. It is not enough to cover up the bad smell, as one would do with scented candles. You have to eliminate the cause of it.
But how do you find the exact spot where the bad smell starts?
With a good odor fogger, you just press the activation button. The mist that will spread through the room will chemically break down every source of bad smell.
#2 It is fast and can clean large spaces with one application.
A good odor fogger acts in a short time and allows you to refresh more than one room at the same time. Our It’s Believable™ Odor Fogger, for example, does its job in 3 to 4 hours, and a 3 oz can is enough to treat up to 3000 cubic feet in a single application.
This can be very helpful if you’re an apartment manager trying to lease a new room, or if you work in building maintenance. Old tenants can leave behind many bad smells when they leave. But with an odor fogger you can easily get rid of it and prepare the whole apartment for visits or new people.
Just remember to let the treated rooms air out for about 30 minutes afterward, and you’re done.
#3 It is the most efficient way to eliminate the smell of smoke, vomit, and animal waste.
How many times has this happened to you? A guest smoked in one of your hotel rooms, and the smell was absorbed into the furniture and carpet. Or someone drank a little too much and threw up, and the stench remained even after you cleaned up.
These are all things that can happen a lot when you run a hospitality business. And if you run a pet-friendly hotel, you also have to consider that animals don’t control their bladder, and they can often make a mess in the worst places.
Getting rid of such smells is a pain, especially if you run a hospitality business and have only a few hours to do all the cleaning. A good odor fogger, on the other hand, can have you rid of them completely in less than 5 hours.
#4 It’s also perfect against body odors
Hospitality facilities are not the only ones that can benefit greatly from using odor foggers.
Think of gyms, schools, offices, or nursing homes. Anyone who operates one of these structures often has to deal with body odors on a regular basis.
Of course, these are natural odors that are nothing to be ashamed of, but they can become really unpleasant and ruin everyone’s mood if nothing is done to counteract them.
Fortunately, with a good odor fogger, you can completely neutralize them in no time and even leave a pleasant aroma in the air.
#5 Attacks every type of agent that causes bad smells
Sometimes, the agents that cause bad smells are incorporated into surfaces. Other times, they stay in the air.
With a good odor fogger, you won’t have to worry about knowing the difference. The cleaning mist will destroy both airborne odors causing agents and those hiding on surfaces.
In short, whether you want to eliminate odors quickly before your new guests arrive, or find a new product to incorporate into your cleaning routine, odor foggers are definitely for you.
You’ll save time and money, and your guests or clients will find a clean, fresh environment. Sounds like a win-win situation to us!
