Sweet as a Rose | Air Fresheners

Why we now expect Air Fresheners in public spaces

Did you know that you can detect over 10,000 different smells, thanks to the 12 million olfactory receptor cells in your nose?  Furthermore, research has proven that smell has the power to affect an individual’s mood, emotions and even memory, so make a point of surrounding yourself with great smells and you will increase your chances of having a happier life without forgetting any great experiences.

However, we cannot help but come across some awful smells in our everyday activities, smells that cause us to frown, become angry all of a sudden, and want to head in the opposite direction of where the smell is coming from.

Modern society does not accept offensive odours and lingering smells as perhaps our forebears did in not so distant times.  But perhaps it was simpler for them to remove the source of the odour by opening a window or door?  Or are we just more sensitive to smells in the 21st century?

Irrespective, it’s now no longer acceptable in a public building or space for users to be assaulted with various pongs, many of which invoke a reaction of distaste, even horror and we now look to Air Fresheners to solve the problem.   Air fresheners are now all pervasive within indoor built environments, such as workplaces, schools, housing, transportation, hotels, hospitals, care facilities, and a range of private and public buildings.  Air fresheners are designed to impart an aroma to the air environment or to mask odours, with the intent of creating a pleasing indoor space.

Air fresheners come in wide variety of versions, including sprays, gels, oils, liquids, solids, plug-ins, hanging disks, beads, potpourri, wick diffusers, and scented candles; in active or passive forms; and with instant, intermittent, or continuous release. Air fresheners also include air care, deodorising, odour control and neutralizer products.

At Liberty Hygiene, we have a wide range of Air Freshening Solutions to suit all sizes of buildings and odour problems:  equipment that can be programmed for up to 90 days delivery and choices of fragrance. We also have suitable equipment for sensitive areas and safe for continuous exposure.

Discreet units, units to match washroom décor, battery powered, mains powered- the choices are many and we will advise you on the best options to suit your premises.
