The workplace needs to be fresh and comfortable to achieve optimum levels of productivity. As such, there is a need for fresh air to circulate and remove stale air from the premises to keep both staff and customers healthy.

How to choose your Air Freshener
The best air fresheners today are safe to use. This is an important point to consider because some people are sensitive to some scents, while others are outright allergic.
- Choose the right scent: Granted that air fresheners provide relief from foul odors. But beware to not replace them with strong overpowering scents. Look for mild and refreshing scents.
- Refills: When choosing refills for your air fresheners look for a dispenser that can accommodate several types of scent producers. That way you have options to choose from a variety of suppliers. This will give you flexibility and choice of scents if there are certain fragrances that you are not particularly fond of. It is important to note most refills last up to two months. However, the programming you set and usage will determine how long they last.
- Type: Just like scents, air fresheners are available in various forms too. Consider the type that will address your needs. Air fresheners also come either as portable or wall-mounted. You have a choice on whether to permanently install it in a particular room say your bathroom or move it around depending on where the foot traffic is most.
- Durability and price: Look for long-lasting air fresheners. Manufacturers will display life span, half-life and all the associated information. The material the air fresheners is made of should be both sturdy as well as eco-friendly. Make sure the unit can also be easily cleaned and managed.
- Additional features: Some fresheners come with LCD display to show the amount of fragrance available, a clock display, and options to set frequencies of spraying and much more. When buying an air freshener for public spaces appearance is a factor. Also, look for air fresheners with decorative elements to conceal their presence.
Though air fresheners help in removing the source of unpleasant odors you should not overlook the importance of air quality. Ventilation factors greatly in making the indoor air quality manageable. Ventilation can help bring in the fresh air, helps circulate stagnant air, reduce temperatures, and remove minute particles, allergens, and pollutants – ultimately protecting both employees and customers. By making sure there is adequate natural ventilation throughout the workplace you also help remove moisture that can create mold.
Air fresheners are versatile and can be used in most spaces. To add to their convenience, they can be easily controlled and set-up in minutes. With air fresheners, you can add fresh life to our office space or shop by creating an inviting fresh ambiance.
