Scenting For Offices
Scenting for Offices - Your guests and employees are going to smell your office - it’s unavoidable. If you’re not managing how it smells, something else is.
Common malodors that are solved by scenting offices include the following:
- Furniture and carpet odor
- Body odor
- Restroom odor
- Garbage odor
- Breakroom and food odor
These types of malodors cannot be resolved with cleaning solutions alone without smelling like an institution, which is where Aroma Retail helps the Professional Services Industry.
Scenting for offices is done for many reasons.
- A scented office is more professional and inviting.
- Increased productivity from employees because everyone has a better mood and is more comfortable, creative, collaborative, and focused in a great smelling office.
- Increased revenue from closing more deals and getting more referrals, by creating a better first impression and more rewarding experiences because your office smells great.
- Without scenting, your office design and décor are incomplete and just doesn’t feel right.
