Odor Challenge, a Common Complaint among Businesses

Facility management businesses have a complex and challenging service to manage, particularly managing their customers’ property and meeting their high expectations, needs and demands. Odor, a common complaint faced among these managing agents, which often persist with no solution.  Typical locations include garbage or waste refuse center, exhaust or drain with poor ventilation and washroom.

Most owners tend to resort “musking” the problem, by installing deodorizer, humidifier, air freshener or diffusers. However, this actually worsen the condition, incurring additional cost that do not value-add or resolve the problem, and worst of all, increasing the complaints and dissatisfaction among the customers.

Housekeepers In hospitality sector face similar situation. For instance, where their garbage area is located at the basement, the odor could actually spread to surrounding locations, affecting the experience of their guests.
