Most people are very sensitive to the odors they encounter on a daily basis. We all enjoy the smell of our favorite meals as well as fond memories triggered by smells from the past. Just as we enjoy pleasant smells we also use our sense of smell to identify unsafe or unhealthy situations. Once we associate an unpleasant odor with a time or place it stays in our memory for a very long time.
Unpleasant odors in your place of business can cost your company money and give your business a bad reputation that can be very difficult to overcome.
