Tackling Tile Grout Odors with the Right Cleaning Supplies

\"VacuumExtractorBrocktonMA\"Grout is often to blame for restroom odors because the porous lines harbor bacteria that causes bad smells. Luckily, regularly removing contaminants and soils can usually solve the odor problem and make your restroom smell as clean as it looks. Follow these tips to keep your restroom fresh and odor-free:

Beware of Mops

Mops are a great cleaning tool for certain applications, but they often fall short when it comes to restroom cleaning. To remove an odor from a restroom, you have to remove the bacteria that is causing it, but mops more often spread it around instead of eliminating it. The solution used to clean the room itself can become contaminated when a dirty mop is wrung in the bucket, and the result is simply spreading around a solution tainted by odor-causing bacteria.

Use Vacuum Extraction Instead

Vacuum extractors are a more hygienic and effective alternative to mops. These systems dispense fresh, uncontaminated cleaning solutions onto restroom floors to lift soils before vacuum extraction. Even residual dehydrated soils, like dried urine, can be cleaned using this method. All the bacteria and other contaminants are suctioned into a recovery tank, leaving the floor clean, dry and odor-free.

Vacuum extractors are also easy to operate and affordable. To learn more about how they can keep your grout and restrooms smelling fresh and clean, contact the team at Banner Systems today at 1-800-242-1400!
