Toledo, Ohio (PRWEB) November 19, 2013
Unsanitary-appearing restrooms in commercial establishments will drive up to 33 percent of customers away, according to findings from an 18-month study conducted by Impact Products LLC, a manufacturer and supplier of janitorial and sanitary maintenance products.
“Restrooms that look and smell clean contribute to an overall positive user experience,” said Jeff Gayer, director of product development, Impact. “In fact, restrooms reflect the quality of service provided throughout a business. So if, for example, a restaurant restroom is perceived as dirty, how might the kitchen look or smell?”
The qualitative research study conducted by Impact found a major cause of most public restroom odor is uric acid splashing on floors, walls and partitions.
“Odor control is not just about masking a foul odor with a pleasant one, it’s about preventing odors caused by urine splatter from ever occurring,” said Gayer.
Armed with the study findings of where and why odors occur, how to combat them, what odors are preventable and when to redeploy odor control, Impact developed a simple holistic solution.
Called “Barricade – Your Odor Defense System™, the solution is composed of four products: the Barricade Hygiene Screen, Barricade Press-on Urinal Mats and Hand-Dryer Mats, Barricade Fragrance Stix™ and Barricade 30-Day Timer Cards. A free software application is included to assist with deployment and change-out compliance.

To protect floors, walls, partitions and the user’s clothing and shoes by preventing a substantial percentage of urine splash-back from urinals, Impact has introduced the first product designed with an innovative (patent pending) plastic screen configured to prevent splattering of urine flow.
