Take a wet, humid room and toss in kids perspiring from a work-out, and you’ve got a recipe for odors. Locker rooms are not far behind restrooms when it comes to the smelliest place in a facility.

Shower areas should be cleaned regularly to prevent the growth of mold and mildew. A liquid malodor counteractant can also be added to mop water to help reduce odors from shower and locker room floors.

Since janitors can’t clean dirty clothes and shoes left in lockers, a odor control dispenser should be placed in the room to combat lingering odors. However, place the dispenser out of reach of students to avoid the potential for vandalism.
