Tackling persistent urine smell in grout

Problem

Keeping high-use amenities fresh and clean smelling is often a problem.

One common cause of odour is when the grout in the mens’ toilets becomes stained from urine, leading to a persistent urine smell. In some cases the grout goes black, suggesting a a secondary mould issue.

Cover-up air fresheners do nothing to tackle the problem at source. And taken to the extreme, re-grouting is an expensive, worst-case solution.

Solution

In cases like this we recommend the following process:

  1. Apply PeroxyClean neat using a small, hard brush (wearing appropriate PPE) and gently agitate.
  2. Leave for 15 minutes.
  3. Agitate again with brush and then immediately wipe off residual (do not rinse).
  4. Repeat process as necessary.

Depending on level of staining and in-ground smell you may have to apply 1-3 times.

PeroxyClean works hard to break down the proteins that cause the urine smell. When the application is complete the staining will totally disappear, the grout should return to its original colour, and most importantly the pervasive smell of urine will have gone.

Result

Fresh smelling amenities and happy customers.
