If you’ve visited any men’s restroom, you’ve probably noticed a hockey-puck-like object inside the urinals. It usually consists of a bright color and is often encased inside a screen.
They’re called urinal deodorizers, and if you’ve ever wondered what these are used for, the professionals at A.G. Maas are here to explain. Urinal deodorizers, often referred to as urinal cakes, play an important role in keeping restrooms clean and smelling fresh. Keep reading to learn more about urinal deodorizers and why you should use them in your business’ restrooms.
What Are Urinal Deodorizers?
When you use a urinal in any workplace restroom, restaurant or other type of business, you’ve probably looked down and noticed a urinal block or urinal deodorizer screen.
Urinal deodorizers are essential for businesses. First, they disrupt the flow of liquid into the urinal to reduce the chances of splatter or splashing. This ensures no urine gets on clothes or is splashed onto the floor, which is an unpleasant sight for anyone using the restroom.
Although urine doesn’t typically have a strong smell, certain factors such as diet, medication or high amounts of ammonia in urine can cause urine to smell worse. Urinal deodorizers add a positive scent to the restroom and use strong smelling molecules to neutralize urine odors.
Urinal deodorizers also give people a spot to aim for to reduce splashing and to keep the urinal cleaner.
How Often Do Urinal Deodorizers Need to Be Replaced?
In restrooms which receive high foot traffic such as in restaurants and shopping areas, urinal deodorizers typically only last a few weeks. We recommend swapping them out at least every 30 days in order for them to remain effective, or replace them when the block dissolves or breaks down. Replace urinal screens about every 30 days, too.
A.G. has a wide range of different types of urinal deodorizers to choose from. A few of our most popular options include:
- Urinal para deodorizer blocks
- Urinal screens with para deodorizer block inside
- Urinal deodorizer screens
