If you’ve noticed unpleasant odors at work, office air fresheners may be just what you need. As winter approaches, doors and windows are shut to keep out the cold. Shutting down the AC allows humidity to build up. Your busy staff hurries about their work, heat up their lunches and the lack of ventilation can trap odors inside. This is the time of year to consider adding a little something to keep things smelling fresh.
There are many types of air sanitizers and fresheners to choose from, depending on your needs.
Automatic Air Freshener Systems
Automatic metered air freshening systems provide ‘round the clock scent enhancement, dispensing a measured spray every 15 minutes, 24 hours a day. These systems are wall mounted and filled via canisters that last between 30 and 180 days. You may select almost any scent you like, ranging from linen to tropical mango to raspberry green tea. Specific deodorizers are available to combat smells in washrooms and kitchens as well. Today’s metered systems feature a low level of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), making them safe for the environment as well.
Hand Held Room Deodorizers
If constant freshening isn’t what your facility needs, handheld room deodorizer products allow you to treat the air whenever and wherever you like. Also known as space sprays, these products are designed to encapsulate and neutralize surface odors as well as airborne varieties. These products are also environmentally conscious and many are available in water-based formulas.
Mechanical Air Deodorizers and Sanitizers
Available in electric- or battery-powered systems, mechanical air sanitizers circulate the air through a filter system to collect airborne pollutants. These systems can be purchased with or without the capacity to add a scent to the air. Particularly effective mechanical systems function by producing low levels of ozone, a known decontamination method. Other mechanical systems simply pump the air through HEPA filer systems. Filter systems can even be incorporated into your facility’s HVAC system, providing a highly effective means for cleaning indoor air of all types of pollutants.
If your office has taken on a questionable smell, a good commercial cleaning service may be the most effective means for combatting it. If your company is located in Utah’s Salt Lake Valley, or the Phoenix, Scottsdale or Tempe, AZ areas, contact Town & Country Office Cleaning.

Office air fresheners are helpful, but nothing beats having a truly clean and deodorized facility.
