What Good is a Finished Basement if It has a Musty Smell?

Are you one of the millions of Americans who spent a lot of time and money finishing your basement, preparing it to be the perfect play area, rec room, man cave or spare bedroom only to find out that you couldn’t stand the musty basement odor long enough to really enjoy it? We can help.

When you have a musty smell in house, your first instinct is to find the source and get rid of it. Unfortunately, most of us assume that all basements smell musty, so we don’t really do a whole lot to try to combat that odor. After all, it’s just typical basement odor, right?

Getting rid of basement odor really isn’t very hard. You just need to have the right tools to do the job properly. If you have a musty smell in house, in the basement or anywhere else, you need to BioShock your home with Biocide Systems’ Room Shocker Quick Release. In one quick application, musty smells are eliminated completely and permanently.

You didn’t finish your basement just to that you could have a pretty room downstairs for your boxes of knick knacks. You finished your basement because you wanted your family to use it as additional living space. Don’t let the musty basement smell keep your family from getting every ounce of enjoyment out of their finished basement. Bio-Shock your basement and get back to enjoying it together as a family.

Room Shocker’s not just for basements, of course. Nor is it only for musty odors. Biocide Systems’ list of products is designed with you in mind. Most homes pick up all kinds of organic odors over the course of time. You can use Room Shocker in any room of your home where you are dealing with a musty smell in house or any other kind of organic odors.

Must Have Odor Removal Products for Fire Remediators

It doesn’t take long in the fire remediation business to realize that one of your toughest tasks is an unseen enemy: removing smoke smell. Chances are, you’ve tried every bad odor remover on the market. After all, home improvement stores and even grocery stores have aisle after aisle of odor removal products. The problem with using them for fire remediation odors is that most of them only offer a temporary fix to a much longer lasting problem.

Fire remediators have a number of odors to deal with when salvaging or restoring a home. The first, and most obvious, is the smoke smell. Most odor removal products simply can’t touch it. Biocide Systems’ Room Shocker and Liquid Shocker can. Next is the musty smell that comes from the home being drenched in an effort to put the fire out. While neither Room Shocker not Liquid Shocker is designed to fight mold or mildew, they can and do eliminate the odors caused by these and other substances.

The reason Biocide Systems’ products are so effective when other odor removal products are not is really fairly simple: Biocide Systems’ bad odor removal products are designed to find the source of odors (usually an organic source of one sort or another) and eliminate the odors. The end result is a completely odor free home. No more smoke smell. No more musty odors. As a matter of fact, chances are the home will smell fresher than it did before the fire. Odor causing molecules will be neutralized, leaving only a clean, odor free area.

Best of all, Room Shocker and Liquid Shocker are easy to use. You’ll notice the difference in the smell after only one application. Bundle packages are available to fire remediators, contractors, and others who anticipate needing to keep bottles of Room Shocker on hand.

Get Rid of that Musty Smell BEFORE You Store Your Boat

Summer is fading in the rearview mirror and winter is fast approaching. It’s just about time to get your boat up and out of the water for the winter. Before you store it, though, you’re going to want to deal with the odors it has accumulated over the year.

We’re sure you’ve taken good care of your boat. You might not even notice any odors yet. If you’ve owned boats for long, though, you know that you’ll notice them in the spring, even if the boat was relatively clean when you took it out of the water for the season. Some boat owners write it off as simply being boat smell. After all, it’s inevitable that boats pick up odors. They get wet (look for musty odors), we use them to go fishing in (not exactly a pleasant odor associated with that, right?

You don’t have to deal with a foul boat smell if you have the right odor removal product. Your boat can smell as good when you put it back in the water next spring as it did in the showroom before you bought it.

How? What kinds of odor removal products can do that? Biocide Systems’ Liquid Shocker and Marine Shocker can eliminate odors completely, giving your boat a fresh, odor neutral smell that will last.

The reason Biocide Systems’ products work so well and leave your boat smelling fresh for so long is that they eliminate odors on the molecular level. Organic odors (the overwhelming majority of marine odors) can be completely eliminated in one simple application.

If you own a house boat or yacht, you may consider using Room Shocker Quick Release as well, for the inner rooms of your vessel. Whichever products you use, they are simple to apply and give your boat a long lasting clean smell.

Before You Make It Look like Home, Make it Smell Like Home

You’ve just bought a new home. Congratulations. You’re eager to move in. That’s understandable. Before you do, though, it’s a good idea to Bio-Shock your new home with Biocide Systems’ Room Shocker.

“But,” you say, “I didn’t notice any bad odors when we inspected the house.”

That’s probably true enough, but consider this: In most cases, homes are thoroughly cleaned and freshened up before they are shown to a potential buyer. After all, the seller wants to present the home as best he can. You can just about guarantee the old owner and/or the realtor did everything they could when it comes to removing house odors before they showed you the house.

Here’s the thing: Most of the cleaners and air fresheners people use don’t really eliminate odors permanently. In most cases, the reason the home smelled fresh when you looked at it was because it was perfumed with air fresheners. You need a carpet odor eliminator that can handle all of the tough odors you may have missed. Room Shocker is the best product on the market for removing house odors of all types.

Maybe the home really doesn’t smell bad, but do you really want to chance it? If you Bio-Shock the home before moving all of your things into the home, you will eliminate any odors the old owners may have left. Room Shocker eliminates everything from pet odors to cigarette smoke odors to serving as a carpet odor eliminator. It can eliminate the smell caused by mold and mildew, eradicate smoke smells, and even get rid of cat urine smell.

Don’t wait until after you’ve moved in to realize your new home has odors you’d rather get rid of. Bio-Shock your home right from the beginning, before you even start moving boxes in, and you won’t have to deal with anyone else’s leftover odor problems.

Making Old Cars Smell Like New

Whether you’re buying it for your own use or to sell to others, buying an old car generally means you inherit all of the previous owners’ odors. If you’ve bought many cars, you know that can get pretty nasty at times. Fortunately, you don’t have to live with old car odors. If you know how to remove car odors and have the right products at your disposal, you can make any car smell like new again.

Whether you need to remove body odors, gas odors, pet odors, or any other odors, you need Biocide Systems’ Auto Shocker Quick Release. Not only is it the fastest way to get rid of car odors, but it’s also the most effective. Dealing with musty smells? No problem. Was your car sprayed by a skunk? Bio-Shock your car, and the smell is gone. You can even remove smoke odor from car with Auto Shocker.

If you’re a used car dealer, you owe it to yourself to look into Biocide Systems’ package deals. Our packages include a ten pack and a 24 pack of Auto Shocker.

Anyone who buys an older car (or even wants to get rid of their own car odors) owes it to themselves to use Auto Shocker. In most cases, one application is all it takes to eliminate car odors.

These days most of us spend a good part of our day behind the wheels of our cars. The last thing any of us wants to do is to be cooped up in a smelly car. That’s why everyone should Bio-Shock their cars. Auto Shocker removes smoke odor from car and also removes other organic odors (i.e., practically all odors). Don’t settle for a stinky car. Bio-Shock your car and it will smell like new. Now, if only it were this easy to keep old cars running like new.

Keeping Odor at Bay in the Kennel Business

Have you noticed that pet owners have become increasingly fussy about the way their pets are taken care of? To see some of them, you would think that they were leaving their kids with you. There’s two ways to look at this: As a problem, or as an opportunity. If you can run an outstanding kennel that sets the bar high for cleanliness, you can get a real leg up on the competition.

We don’t need to tell you how to clean up after animals. If you’re in the kennel business, you already know how to take care of pets and how to keep their areas clean. The problem most kennel operators run into is controlling the odors that come with running a kennel. Let’s face it, most pet odor removal products just don’t work, especially when you’re dealing with large numbers of pets.

If you have the right pet odor removal products, however, it’s easy to get rid of kennel odor. Try using Biocide Systems’ Room Shocker and Liquid Shocker. When you Bio-Shock your kennels, you can remove all pet odors, usually with a single application.

Use Room Shocker for any indoor kennel areas where pets are kept. Room Shocker’s Quick Release formula works fast and knocks out kennel odor on the molecular level. You will, of course, want to remove the pets from the kennel while using Room Shocker. Use Liquid Shocker for outdoor areas, or to deal with small spots that are causing odor (such as a corner where dogs or cats have peed repeatedly).

Both Liquid Shocker and Room Shocker are environmentally friendly and safe for pets and humans. Both eliminate odor completely.

When you Bio-Shock your kennels regularly, your clients will be the first to notice how clean your kennels smell compared to other places they have left their pets. When that happens, word is sure to get out that yours are the best kennels in the area.

What to Do When Pet Urine Smells Have Set In

There are all sorts of reasons why pets pee in the house. From new pets that just need to be potty trained to cats which weren’t neutered fast enough to prevent them from marking the bed posts (you know, just in case a female feline was looking for a good time in your room), removing pet urine smells is among the toughest household cleaning chores.

Or is it? The truth is, if you have the right products and know how to get rid of cat urine smell (or dog urine smell, for that matter), it really isn’t very hard at all. Biocide Systems’ Room Shocker is the best pet urine odor remover on the market today. Even better, you’ll find that Bio-Shocking your home eliminates all odors, leaving your home with a neutral scent.

So, what’s so special about Room Shocker? The secret is in how it works. Have you ever noticed when you use most cleaning and odor removal products that you are able to eliminate pet urine and other offensive odors for a while, but the smell ends up coming right back in a day or two? The reason for this is that you never really eliminated the odor.

Most odors are caused by organic matter decaying. This includes pet urine. The reason why Room Shocker is the best pet urine odor remover on the market is that its active ingredient reacts chemically with the organic molecules which cause odor. The reaction eliminates odor and releases harmless ions into the atmosphere.

Of course, Bio-Shocking is just one step in the process. You’ll also need to train your pets to go potty outside or in the litter box. What many people don’t realize, though, is that it’s much easier to train your animals not to pee in the house when the house doesn’t smell like pet urine. When your pets smell urine in the house, they figure that’s where they should pee.

This is even worse if the urine smell was originally from someone else’s pets. Most pets, if they smell another pet’s urine in their “turf” will take it as a challenge and mark the territory themselves. That’s why even potty trained pets sometimes have trouble when they move to a new home.

When you remove the urine odor with the best pet urine odor remover and train your pets, you can keep the urine smell out of your home permanently.

Don’t Get Rid of Rover…BioShock the Kennel Instead

How many times have you said it? “I love the dog. I just don’t love the smell.”

It’s isn’t Rover’s fault. He smells like a dog because he IS a dog. Even regular bathing isn’t going to stop him from leaving dog smell on the furniture and carpet (though it makes it more bearable, to be sure). So, how can you keep the dog smell out of your home without getting rid of the dog? It’s easier than you may think thanks to the revolutionary odor removal products produced by Biocide Systems.

When you Bio-Shock your home and kennel, you do more than covering up dog odors. You completely remove odor from the room and kennel. Your typical pet odor eliminator does very little to truly get rid of dog odors. It may cover up urine smell or neutralize the musty smell that comes with having a dog, but it doesn’t really eliminate the odors. Room Shocker and Liquid Shocker from Biocide Systems do remove the odors. In fact, they remove them completely and permanently.

The component that allows Biocide Systems’ products to work so much better than your average pet odor eliminator is chlorine dioxide. The chemical is not harmful. When activated, it bonds with the molecular structure of the organic molecules which cause odor. The resulting reaction eliminates odors entirely and releases harmless ions into the air. Your home is left with a completely neutral odor.

Try Room Shocker for your home and Liquid Shocker for your kennel. After one application, no one will even be able to tell you have a dog (from the smell, at least). Biocide Systems’ products are easy to use, environmentally friendly, and safe for humans and pets. By Bio-Shocking your home with the Quick Release version of Room Shocker, you can keep your pets whole getting rid of your pet odors.

In the House or In the Car, Bio-Shock to Eliminate Smoke Odor

Life is tough for smokers these days. Long gone are the days when half of all adults smoked, and it was considered a normal part of the culture. While reducing the number of people who smoke may be good for our country’s health, it presents some real challenges for those who still do smoke. For one, friends, family members, and other visitors tend to be much more sensitive to the odors caused by smoking.

Removing smoke smell from your car or home isn’t as difficult as most people think it is. The problem is that the odor removal products available at department and grocery stores don’t really do the job. They mask odor, but they don’t really eliminate it. To remover odor from room or car, you need a product that deals with the odor on a molecular level. You need Biocide Systems’ Auto Shocker and Room Shocker.

The Quick Release versions of Auto Shocker and Room Shocker are easy to use and effectively eliminate all organic odors in your home or car (i.e., they do a lot more than just removing smoke smell from car or your home). No organic odor is too tough. Biocide Systems’ products are tough enough to handle skunk odor, cigarette odor, musty odor, and more. When you Bio-Shock your home or car, you eliminate all odors, leaving yourself with a space that smells fresh and odor free.

There’s nothing wrong with air fresheners if you want to give your car or room a particular scent. There is something wrong if you’re trying to use them to eliminate odors. They simply can’t do it. It isn’t what they’re designed for.

Removing smoke smell from car or home requires an odor removal product that can deal with the smell on a molecular level. Because Biocide Systems’ products do just that, they can eliminate odors, no matter how deep they are set into upholstery, carpet, or furniture. Removing smoke smell rom car or home is easy when you Bio-Shock them.
