What to Do When the House Smells Like a Wet Dog

We love our dogs and would do anything for them. Some of the smells they drag in the house after them? Not so much. To keep your home smelling clean and fresh, you need a pet odor eliminator that really works.

If you’ve ever tried to keep your home looking and smelling clean with a dog around, you know that it’s no easy task. On top of your efforts to keep the dog reasonably clean, you need to be able to get pet odor out of carpets, mattresses, furniture, and upholstery. Unfortunately, your average pet odor eliminator doesn’t accomplish all that. Neither does your average carpet odor eliminator. You need a pet odor eliminator that doubles as a carpet odor eliminator and a furniture odor eliminator. You need Room Shocker Quick Release and Liquid Shocker.

Biocide Systems has a complete line of odor eliminating products that knock odors out at the molecular level. The groundbreaking formula uses chlorine dioxide, a naturally occurring chemical which bonds naturally with the organic matter which causes pet odors. When the active ingredient in Room Shocker bonds with the smelly organic matter, odors are completely eliminated. We’re not talking about covering up or perfuming over pet odors. We’re talking about eliminating them completely. There simply is not a more effective pet odor eliminator or carpet odor eliminator on the market today.

Room Shocker can handle the toughest odors your dog can throw at it. Wet dog smell? No problem? Even if your dog is sprayed y a skunk and brings the smell inside, Room Shocker can eliminate the odor.

When ordering Room Shocker, you might also want to consider picking up some Doggi Cleen Skunk spray. It’s the easiest, most effective way to get rid of the smell should your dog have a run in with a skunk (and let’s face it, you don’t want to wait until after your dog has met the skunk to order it if you can help it).

Check out our whole line of odor elimination products for your pets, kennels, homes, apartments, cars, boats, and more. If it smells bad (because of wet dog or something else), Biocide Systems has a product to eliminate the odor.

Summertime Odors and How to Kick Them Out of Your House

Most of us love that clean, fresh feeling in our homes after we get done with the spring cleaning. Unfortunately, though, most houses don’t stay smelling clean for long. It’s not your fault. You used the best odor removal products you had, but have found that removing house odors can be a losing battle…or at least one that you have to repeat over and over again.

The reason for this is fairly simple. Most odor removal products don’t do anything about the source of the odor. All they do is mask over the smell. Theoretically, the other cleaning you do eliminates the actual source of the odors in your home. Unfortunately, though, the most potent odors tend to hide in your carpeting and the upholstery of your furniture, making them hard to get to.

Summertime is especially tough when it comes to household odors. Most of us keep the house closed up and the air conditioning running. Unfortunately, this provides a perfect situation for the decaying organic material and microorganisms which cause household odors. Removing house odors does little good if you don’t also eliminate the source of the odor.

To eliminate household odors at their source, you need odor removal products that can get to the source of the odor and neutralize it. You need Biocide Systems’ Room Shocker Quick Release. Room Shocker uses chlorine dioxide, a chemical which naturally forms a molecular bond with organic materials which cause odor. When this bonding occurs, the odor is eliminated-completely neutralized. It’s safe, it’s fast, and it’s effective.

If you’ve tried removing house odors and nothing seems to be working, BioShock your home. You’ll see right away the difference that Room Shocker can make. Then, once you’ve eliminated the source of the odors in your home, use Room Shocker Time Release to keep new odors from moving in and ruining your summer.

It’s summer time. You don’t want to be inside scrubbing and trying to find the source of every household odor. Let Room Shocker handle that for you so you can go and enjoy your summer.

Making Your Lake Home an Odor Free Paradise

When it’s time to take a weekend off at the lake house, the last thing you want to concern yourself with is cleaning and eliminating odor. That’s why you should make it a point to BioShock your lake house before your trip to the lake.

Removing house odors common to lake houses is a snap with Biocide Systems’ Room Shocker Quick Release. Simply use as directed to remove odor from room after room. There really isn’t any work to it. The active ingredient (chlorine dioxide) in Room Shocker Quick Release does the work for you, leaving your lake house smelling fresh and odor neutral.

Ideally, you should BioShock your lake house in the fall/winter when you close it up for the year. If you didn’t do so, it’s no problem, however. Room Shocker Quick Release works quickly to remove odor from room after room in just one application. Removing house odors-even stubborn lake house odors like musty odors and fish odor-has never been easier.

There’s no need to spend day after day scrubbing with harsh chemicals and spraying air freshener throughout the lake house. BioShock your lake house before your vacation and you’ll enjoy a fresh, clean smelling vacation on the lake. After all, isn’t that why you bought a lake house?

Lake house owners will want to keep a supply of Room Shocker on hand. After all, you never know when the boys will bring in a haul of lake trout or the dog will get sprayed by a skunk. Room Shocker takes care of all of these odors, as well as removing house odors that are more common in lake houses.

Room Shocker is perfect for lake houses, but don’t stop there. It’s also great for removing house odors at your permanent residence. Lake House owners may also want to pick up Marine Shocker for the boat and Auto Shocker for the car. All Biocide Systems products eliminate odors quickly and effectively, completely neutralizing odor in your home, boat, or car.

Getting Your Car Upholstery Clean and Odor Free for Summer

Cars are practically a breeding ground for odors. Whenever you get a bunch of bodies in a small confined space for significant periods of time, there’s going to be odor. Add to that the fact that many of us smoke in our cars (usually with the windows rolled up these days), we eat (and spill) in our cars, and that our pets sometimes ride in the cars, and you have a recipe for some really funky smells. We leave the windows rolled up 75% of the time, running heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer, ensuring that the odors we produce stay put.

So, how do you go about getting rid of that odor? Is there an effective way of removing smoke smell from car? What about the myriad of other odors even nonsmokers deal with? How do we get those out of our cars?

To effectively remove odor from your car, you need an odor removal product that can find the source of the odors and eliminate them. Odors typically hide themselves in the upholstery and carpeting, making them tough for most products to eliminate. When trying to remove odor from your car, it’s important to use a product which can serve as a carpet odor eliminator, since that’s where most of the odor hides.

Most of the odors we deal with in our cars come from organic sources (burning tobacco, sweat, pieces of food dropped between the seats, etc.). Auto Shocker from Biocide Systems uses chlorine dioxide, a safe chemical which seeks out and bonds with the organic molecules which cause odor. When it bonds with them, the resulting reaction gives off odorless and harmless ions, making your car odor free.

Removing smoke smell from car, or any other organic odor, is easy. One application of Auto Shocker Quick Release is all it takes in most cases. Even the most stubborn odors-skunk odor, fish odor, cigarette smoke odor, body odor-are eliminated quickly and naturally. Auto Shocker is an effective auto carpet odor eliminator, too.

Do you want to get your car smelling fresh and clean for summer? BioShock it with Auto Shocker Quick Release today.

Worst HazMat Odors and How to Handle Them

After a fire, flood, or other disaster, all people want is a return to normalcy. If you’re in the home remediation business, you undoubtedly know how much it means to people when they’re able to move back into their homes. One of the toughest aspects of home remediation is removing house odors that are left behind after a home has been damaged by fire or water. Whether you’re dealing with residual smoke smell from a fire, musty smell from water damage due to floods or the water used to put out a fire, or other odors, the right odor removal products can make all the difference in the world.

How many times have you gone through a house repeatedly, spraying Lysol other odor removal products? Have you ever wondered why the smell just keeps coming back? To understand why odors are so difficult to get rid of (and to know which odor removal products will get the job done right the first time), you need to understand a little bit about what causes odors in the first place.

Most household odors, including the kinds commonly dealt with in home remediation, are caused by the decay of organic materials. This happens on a molecular level, making it very hard to get rid of all the organic material that’s causing the odor. Most so-called odor removal products don’t even try to remove or fundamentally change the matter that’s causing the odor-they just cover it up.

Obviously, covering up odor is NOT removing house odors. If you want to eliminate the odors completely, you need odor removal products that attack the problem at its source-the decaying organic material. You need Liquid Shocker and Room Shocker Quick Release by Biocide Systems.

Biocide Systems’ line of products works by causing a chemical reaction which fundamentally changes the organic materials that cause home odors. When used as directed, the chlorine dioxide in their products bonds with the organic material, completely eliminating the odor and releasing harmless ions into the air. Organic odors are eliminated completely, leaving the home smelling fresh, clean, and odor neutral.

Summer Time is Odor Time for Pets

There’s no time like summer time. Time to soak up some rays, crank up the AC, and let the kids and pets run wild and free. Unfortunately, though, all that time outside means that pets (and kids, for that matter), tend to pick up some pretty grungy odors. While regular baths are the best way to keep the pets (and kids) from staying smelly, it’s impossible to keep the odor completely away.

Even the cleanest dogs will end up smelling funky (and making the carpet and furniture smell just as funky) if you don’t have the right odor removal products. The fact that we tend to keep our homes closed up during the dog days of summer only makes pet odors worse.

You keep a clean home, and chances are that you’ve tried all kinds of odor removal products. Most of them seem to work OK for a while, but the pet odors just keep coming back. The reason, frankly, is that your average pet odor eliminator doesn’t eliminate odors at all; it only covers them up and masks them with fragrance. Trying to get rid of pet odors in your home with those kinds of odor removal products is kind of like skipping showers and just putting on extra cologne or perfume-sooner or later the stink is going to come through.

What if we told you there’s a pet odor eliminator that does more than cover odors up? What if we told you about odor removal products that actually remove the odors completely? Using those kinds of odor removal products would be a no brainer, right?

Biocide Systems produces a variety of odor removal products, including the best pet odor eliminator on the market. No matter what kinds of smells your dog brings into the house-even if your dog has an unfortunate run in with a skunk- you can count on Biocide Systems to deliver a pure, odor neutral atmosphere to your home.

All of Biocide Systems’ products, from our Room Shocker and Auto Shocker to our Doggi Cleen spray, operate on the same basic principle. Odors are caused by decaying organic matter. Our products find that matter, whether it’s on the pets or in the carpet, and bond with it, causing a harmless chemical reaction that eliminates odors completely at their source. Wherever you happen to be dealing with pet odors this summer-in the car, in the home, or in the kennel, Biocide Systems has the odor removal products you need to get rid of the odor fast.

Removing Odors from Car Carpets

It would seem like removing car odors should be fairly easy. After all, most of the car’s surfaces are nonporous and easy to clean and disinfect. So, why is it that you just can’t get rid of stubborn odors? What do the top auto detailers know that you don’t know?

The truth is, removing car odors isn’t difficult if you know how to remove car odors and you have the right tools-starting with an effective carpet odor eliminator. You see, most of the really stubborn car odors, from cigarette odor to that musty body odor smell that accumulates in older cars, gets trapped deep into the car’s upholstery, carpet, and seats. The right carpet odor eliminator is all you need for removing car odors.

So, where can you find a carpet odor eliminator that can tackle the tough odors that set into used cars? The best one on the market is Biocide Systems’ Auto Shocker. There’s no need to spend a lot of time worrying about how to remove car odors. Auto Shocker is easy to use and will generally eliminate all odors in one application.

What makes Auto Shocker so much different from any other carpet odor eliminator you could pick up at the store? Simply this: Auto Shocker’s active ingredient-chlorine dioxide-does more than cover odors up. It eliminates them completely. It does this by bonding with the decaying organic material that causes odors. When Auto Shocker meets the source of car odors, the ensuing chemical reaction release harmless ions into the air while simultaneously neutralizing the smell. You are left with an odor free car.

Whether you’re looking to sell used cars (and want them to smell cleaner so you can command a higher price), sell or trade in your personal car, or just want a more comfortable, less smelly ride, Auto Shocker is the carpet odor eliminator you’ve been looking for. Nothing is more effective for removing car odors. Try it yourself and see. When you want your car to smell better than new, BioShock it with Auto Shocker.

Carpet Still Stinks After Steam Cleaning? Don’t Toss It; Bio Shock It

When you’ve scrubbed your carpets, shampooed them, and had them professionally steam cleaned and they still smell like cat pee, smoke, or some other unpleasant odor, it’s time to get new carpet, right? That is one solution, but it’s a rather expensive one. What if there’s a better, less expensive way of removing house odors from your carpet? What if there’s a carpet odor eliminator that really works?

We’re not talking about your run of the mill carpet odor eliminator that doesn’t really do anything about removing house odors. We’ve all tried to get rid of odors by covering them up, and most of us have already figured out that it doesn’t work. As soon as the perfumed fragrance wears off, everyone notices the carpet smells again.

At Biocide Systems, we take a different approach to removing house odors. We understand something that most of our competitors just don’t seem to get: In order to eliminate odors, you have to attack them at the source and remove what’s causing the odors.

Believe it or not, that doesn’t mean throwing out the carpets. What it does mean is using a carpet odor eliminator that deals with the true source of the carpet odors on a molecular level. At Biocide Systems, our line of odor removal products does just that.

The active ingredient in all of our odor removal products is chlorine dioxide. Chlorine dioxide actively seeks out the organic molecules which cause odors, bonding with them. When this chemical reaction takes place, odors are neutralized completely, leaving your carpet and home fresh and odor neutral.

When you BioShock your home with Room Shocker, it will eliminate carpet odors and any other organic odors in the home. Liquid Shocker is perfect for getting rid of pet urine, musty smells, and other common carpet odors. Used Liquid Shocker in combination with Room Shocker, and you’ll feel like you have a brand new home again.

The choice is yours. You can get new carpet if you want to. Just keep in mind that you’ll eventually be dealing with the same odors in the new carpet, too. No one wants to keep replacing carpeting if they can avoid it. Use Biocide Systems’ effective carpet odor eliminator instead.
