Waterless urinal cleaners should use a soft cloth to wipe the urinals from the outside in using a disinfectant cleaner. Using harsh chemicals or bristled brushes can cause scratches on the surface of the urinal and cause damage to it. Having scratches all over the surface of the urinal make it harder to clean and also gives germs and bacteria a place to harbor, leading to foul smells. Using a bioactive cleaner can help get rid of these smells. There are many specific waterless urinal cleaners that are found effective in getting rid of the smell associated with uric acid using chemicals.Sealant and Trap ReplacementWhen it comes to trap replacement and maintenance, most of the time it is left to cleaning professionals. The maintenance needs differ as per the cleaning agent you are using and the type of waterless urinal you have. However, the process usually involves replenishing the liquid sealant and also replacing the cylinder if it is necessary.How to Add SealantWhen the urinal is used, there is also draining of small amounts of sealant into the waste line. This loss of sealant needs to be replenished otherwise the urinal will run out of it. The sealant usually needs to be replenished after every 1500 uses of the urinal. For example, in case of a typical school, you will need two refills of the sealant each month. The sealant for your waterless urinal usually comes with a portion aid device which can be used to measure accurately 3 ounces of sealant which are to be poured directly to the cylinder.
