When a client or colleague walks into your business, what do they notice first? It might not be what you think. First impressions happen very fast – and most people are led by their nose.
Bad Odors Kill Businesses
Hyperosmia – having a very heightened sense of smell – impacts approximately one-third of the population. These are the individuals most likely to immediately notice – and be repulsed by – any bad odors they experience in your business.
The bad news is most people won’t tell you your business smells bad. They assume you know it smells bad, and you’re apparently fine with it since you’re not doing anything about it.
But that’s not the case. People can develop what’s known as ‘nose-blindness’ – a situation where they grow accustomed to odors surrounding them to the point where they no longer perceive the odor’s presence. Most business owners strongly prefer their business facilities to be odor free.
Some odors are endemic, which means those scents are commonly there because of processes happening in the environment. A bakery, for example, smells like warm bread. But not every endemic odor smells like warm bread. The complaints we address as an odor removal service for businesses include odors of mold, mildew, waste, rotting food, and more.
Key to eliminating odors is understanding what caused the odor. Finding the source of odors can be complicated, but with the right technology and expertise, it can be done. Once the source of odors has been identified, steps can be taken to remove it. An odor removal company uses their facilities expertise and commercial cleaning skills to clear the air.
It’s important to note that janitorial services and office cleaning services can be a good starting point when trying to eliminate odors from the business. A deep cleaning will help eliminate many odors from the environment.
