  • ClO2 Bio-Shocker™ vs. Other Odor Eliminators

    Homes and apartments have an unfortunate tendency to collect all kinds of odors. Cigarette smoke, molds, pet urine, spoiled food—these are just a few of the unsavory smells that can infest our living spaces. All these odors aren’t just annoying to you and your visitors, they can even contribute to respiratory problems. And the problem of foul odors doesn’t end when we go out. Cars, boats, and office rooms are equally capable of harboring stench.

    What can be done about all these odors? There is certainly no shortage of solutions on the marketplace. You can find plenty of sprays, gels, filters, and other products that promise to get rid of smells once and for all. But it’s important to realize that not all of these products are equally effective.

    A common problem with “odor-eliminating” products is that they don’t actually eliminate odors—they only cover them up, and often very ineffectively. What you need is a true odor eliminator that attacks the issue at its source. Biocide Systems' Bio-Shocker™ products, which rely on the power of chlorine dioxide (ClO2), do just that. They’re also free of the safety hazards that plague many conventional odor-elimination products.

    We at Biocide Systems have prepared this simple infographic that explains how our ClO2-based solutions work, and why alternative odor-fighting products can’t compete.

  • How to Manage Rental Property

    residential buildings

    Many people purchase an investment property with the intention of renting it to good tenants. Whether you manage one rental property or one hundred, the basic steps to responsible rental management are the same.

    If you are interested in learning how to manage rental property or improve your property management skills, this guide will cover the basics of managing a rental and help you avoid the common pitfalls.

    1. Buy and Repair a Suitable Rental Property

    If you don’t already own the property you plan to rent, then you will need to purchase one and bring it up to code. Check local landlord-tenant laws to determine what improvements you will need to make. Making basic repairs, cleaning thoroughly, and dealing with any odor problems are the first steps to a profitable future.

    You may need to use a professional-grade product to eliminate lingering odors before you show your rental property to prospective tenants. Using the apartment managers bundle from Biocide Systems, you can remove tough and offensive odors like these:

      • Garbage or rotten food
      • Pet odors
      • Strong spice or cooking odors
      • Cigarette or marijuanna smoke
      • Mold or mildew
      • Odors from fire or flood damage

        2. Set a Rental Price and Market Your Property

        Most property management companies perform a market analysis to set the rental rate for a particular property. You can do your own analysis of rentals available in your area, taking into account location, amenities, and recent remodeling to set your property apart.

        Once you have set a fair price, get the word out on social media, local papers, and real estate websites. If you are targeting a specific group of renters, like college students, focus your marketing where they are likely to see it on campus or in an online search.

        3. Screen Potential Tenants Carefully

        Make yourself aware of fair housing laws and plan to screen potential tenants carefully while avoiding any discriminatory practices. You can use these methods to find out more about the people who want to rent your property:

          • Credit checks
          • Background checks
          • Rental history
          • Employment history
          • Personal references
          • Interview questions

            4. Have a Complete Set of Rental Documents Signed

            When you manage properties for rent, you will need certain legal agreements signed in order to protect your rights as the landlord. You will need a lease agreement that clearly outlines:

              • The length of the lease period and how it is renewed
              • Which individuals are allowed to inhabit the property
              • Whether pets are allowed and under what conditions
              • The amount of the security deposit and the requirements for its return
              • Whether the tenant may sublet the property or have residents onsite who are not listed on the lease
              • How disputes will be settled and under what circumstances the tenant can be evicted

                5. Streamline Finances and Communication

                You will need to keep in touch with tenants and manage their requests. In some cases, new landlords have hired a property manager to help them get started.

                If you have many properties to manage, you might consider a tenant portal to make it easier for your renters to perform these functions:

                  • Report and track maintenance issues.
                  • Pay rent, pet fees, or security deposits online.
                  • Set up auto-payments or pay by credit card.
                  • Extend their lease or move to another property you own.

                    6. Manage Tenant Moves and Turnover

                    It is important to remember that you will not just be managing properties but managing tenants as well. Good tenants will still want to move eventually, and you may have to evict tenants who break their lease agreements or engage in illegal activities on your properties.

                    Whenever a tenant moves out, you will need to perform a property inspection and carefully document any damage to the property that will result in a reduced security deposit being returned. A complete cleaning, deodorizing, and carpet shampoo is usually required to get a rental back into showable condition.

                    7. Protect Your Investment by Maintaining Your Properties

                    There are many reasons to keep your rental properties in the best possible condition. You have a legal responsibility to maintain a habitable property for your tenants. To keep the best tenants, you will need to provide the best quality rental.

                    Encourage your renters to report anything that needs repair, thank them for doing so, and take care of maintenance issues quickly and correctly. Make sure you visit and inspect properties on a regular basis to look for problems, with proper notice to your tenants.

                    Perform these regular maintenance chores to protect your investment:

                    • Install physical and electronic security systems to protect the property from break-ins, keep your tenants safe, and protect vacant properties until they are rented.
                    • Maintain alarms, smoke detectors, and carbon monoxide detectors.
                    • Maintain landscaping and lawns, clean gutters, check for storm damage.
                    • Provide pest control services for termites and other pests that damage property.
                    • Provide fire extinguishers and other safety equipment tenants can use in an emergency.
                    • Change air filters and furnace filters and check for mold or water leaks at least once a year.
                    • Maintain and replace major appliances to prevent damage to floors or odor problems.

                    8. Keep Your Financial Houses in Order

                    Managing rental properties is a business, and tenants are your customers. You should plan on maintaining detailed financial records and doing some intensive monthly bookkeeping. To maximize profits and keep your business growing, manage these financial factors carefully:

                    • Keep rental rates in line with the local market, raising them when necessary.
                    • Collect rent, security deposits, late fees, and other income promptly.
                    • Budget for regular maintenance and appliance replacement.
                    • File taxes and track all property expenses.
                    • Plan for vacancies and the costs of finding new tenants when existing ones move out.
                    • Maintain insurance to cover unexpected property damages or liability claims.
                    • Consider incentives for loyal and responsible tenants, such as gift cards from local businesses, pet rent paybacks, and other considerations that will help you keep the right tenants long term.

                    Keeping Rental Properties Clean and Fresh

                    Biocide Systems Auto Shocker Clo2 Odor Eliminator

                    Spraying some air freshener or baking some cookies is often not enough to get rid of lingering odors in rental homes and apartments. One reliable way to remove all of those offensive odors—including pet, smoke, decay, or mildew smells—from your property is the Room Shocker from Biocide Systems in our apartment managers bundle.

                    Because it works like a fumigation bomb, the room shocker uses safe and effective CIO2 to remove odor-causing molecules in a single application. It is biodegradable, safe for the environment, and leaves no dangerous residues behind—just a clean and fresh-smelling home ready for your tenants to rave about.

                  1. It Doesn’t Matter How It Got In – Remove Skunk Smell From Your Home!

                    Usually, when you think of something smelling badly of skunk, you think of your pet or an area outside of your home. But when a skunk sprays, the odor is extremely strong, and if it’s particularly strong outside of your home, the smell of skunk can quickly get inside your house too. And, if your pet gets sprayed by a skunk and then comes inside, they may leave that unpleasant odor inside long after they’ve left again.

                    Skunk smell is different from other unpleasant smells in your home. That’s partly because it is so strong, and so difficult to live with. Skunk smell is also different because you don’t need to find the source of the smell to eliminate the skunk smell. It doesn’t really matter how it got in, once it’s there you need to remove that skunk smell from your house! There are a few things you can do to try and get it out, but you’ll probably need to turn to a professional solution to remove all of the skunk smell.

                    Start by opening all of the windows that you can and getting as much fresh air as possible into the house. Turning on a few fans will help remove the skunk smell from the home and bring in even more air from outside. But because skunk smell is so strong, you’ll most likely also need to give your walls and furniture a thorough cleaning. Walls can be cleaned with a mixture of either water and bleach or water and vinegar; and furniture can be sprinkled with talcum powder, which can then be vacuumed up afterward. Fabric spray also works very well on furniture and will help to eliminate skunk smell.

                    Even after you’ve gone to all the trouble of cleaning your furniture and washing your walls, you may find that the skunk smell is still hanging in the air. Or, you might just not want to go to all the time and trouble of thoroughly cleaning your entire house. In these cases, a product such as our Room Shocker Quick Release (https://www.biocidesystems.com/products/room-shocker-clo2-odor-eliminator-quick-release-vapor) can quickly eliminate skunk odor from your home in as little as 24 hours. You won’t have to do anything more than place a packet in a cup of water and then leave the room for the product to do all the hard work for you!

                    The best thing about using our Room Shocker Quick Release to eliminate skunk odor from your home is that it gets rid of the smell, and any toxic substances that may have also come into the home through the skunk’s spray. So you can be sure that you’re not only breathing better smelling air, but healthier air too!

                  3. Easy Tips to Remove Pesky Car Odor

                    Spilled coffee is the last thing on your mind when you find yourself rushing out the door in the mornings with your travel mug. After all, you have a gazillion other things to worry about! Once spilled, however, coffee can turn into a horrible odor that stinks up your trusty ol’ vehicle rather quickly.

                    Other smells that could linger in your car may originate from your sick child throwing up as you rush them to a doctor’s appointment, or the smell of cigarette smoke that remains persevering in your vehicle.

                    This article is all about helping you eliminate such odors and gaining that new car smell again. The first step to do so is to isolate the odors. There are two types of smells that your vehicle may be harboring – ones that come from the obvious sources and the ones that do not!

                    Often, we do not think much about the odors and simply use an air freshener to manage the stench. Unfortunately, experts say that these products often only mask the smell, instead of neutralizing the odor and removing it!

                    Here are a few simple methods that may work for you:

                    Vacuum The Smell Away

                    The most likely cause of an odorous car is that these smells are trapped in the fabric of the interior. Vacuuming by using the special upholstery attachment can work in such cases. Try to reach every nook and cranny while you vacuum, as the smells can potentially be hiding in the smallest of crevices! Not satisfied? Try steam cleaning as another option to concur and defeat the odor!

                    Baking Soda May Help

                    Another way to remove lingering smells is by using baking soda. If you accidentally spill your coffee on the carpet, a touch of baking soda will take care of it. Once you are done sprinkling, rub the powder in the affected area and then allow it to sit for a few hours.

                    This treatment will allow the concentrate to absorb all free smells. Next, clean the baking soda from the carpet with your vacuum. Keep in mind that leaving the powder on a wet mess will only allow it to crystallize instead of removing the odors.

                    Try Charcoal

                    Charcoal is one of the best substances that you can probably find that will absorb smells. In order to make this work for you, grab some charcoal and allow the pieces to sit in the vehicle for a few days.

                    Soon, it will have absorbed the odors, leaving your car smell-free, and don’t worry, those pieces of charcoal are also still safe to use afterwards for grilling!

                    While these remedies may work or not, we have one that is guaranteed to work.

                    Bio-Shock The Odors Out Of Your Car

                    In fact, this one makes removing odors from your automobiles as easy as never before! Auto-shocker is twice as effective, no matter which kind of odor needs removal.

                    Cigarette smoke is one of the toughest smells to eliminate, and if a member of your family smokes, then you need this remedy more than ever.

                    The smoke released on a daily basis enters the porous materials in your car. Over time, it becomes a permanent resident, damaging not only the car but also your very health!

                  4. Deodorizing A Room In Your Home

                    Experiencing odd smells in your room but unable to pinpoint the source of it? Your own nose may have grown immune to the stench over time, however, your friends and guests can smell it just fine. And they may not hold back from expressing their disgust and displeasure every time, much to your chagrin.

                    Wondering how you can get rid of such smells and save yourself from any humiliation in the future? Air fresheners will do the trick for a while, but to keep your room fresh and clean, you will need a special product. Don't worry, we found it and it is "Made in the USA"!

                    Room Shocker, the world’s first portable ClO2 delivery system, is one of the strongest and safest odor eliminating tools known to mankind.

                    Chlorine dioxide or ClO2, has been around for over 70 years; it is effectively used to remove severe toxic odors. However, up until recently, it was only used in large industrial applications as a gas or liquid solution.

                    But now, thanks to Biocide Systems and their ingenious partners at CLOO Labs, anyone can buy this magical odor removing formula in a jar. Using this patented ClO2-DMg technology, you have the power to remove stinky smell right from its source.

                    Basically, odor particles are attracted and removed by the chlorine dioxide gas as it seeps throughout the affected area. They then disintegrate upon contact, resulting in an odor free, clean and refreshed environment.

                    A few hours later, when you come back to the treated space, you'll be amazed and relieved to find nothing but crisp, fresh and clean air. Say “Goodbye” to pet odors, smoke or mildew smells!

                    BioShock product line has products to satisfy a nit-picky customer. Whether you are looking to treat a small area or a whole house, try their Home Cleanup Bundle to maximize the effect throughout the property, or opt for their quick release Room Shocker™ ClO2 Odor Eliminator.

                    Have pets? Go for doggiClEEN™ Skunk Spray ClO2 Odor Eliminator.

                    Moreover, this product is completely eco-friendly and non-toxic. All the components for the ClO2-DMG technology are made of biodegradable materials. The chlorine dioxide component releases no carcinogens or volatile organic compounds into the atmosphere. This means it is 100% safe to use around pets and kids.

                    The main ingredients literally break down into a salt and water solution, leaving no carbon footprint whatsoever. This product is made in the USA and offers a 100% money back guarantee. Amazing!

                     

                  5. Auto Shocker Removes Odor from Your Car or Your Money Back

                    Undoubtedly, having a car is a necessity.

                    We spend hours commuting for business and pleasure. And, of course, it is more enjoyable to ride in a clean, fresh new car smell. But keeping the interior of your car odorless is not an easy task. Due to all the porous leather, polyurethane or PVC materials used in the seats and dashboards, it is more likely the surfaces will retain bad odors. 

                    When new, there’s that distinct new car smell we all love. After a while the scent fades away freeing the space to all kinds of stinky stenches. Have a smoke, and your car will smell like tobacco for days. If one of your kids gets sick in the backseat, or a pet decides to get too comfy on the warm seat on a winter day, be prepared to spend weeks trying to get rid of the vomit and pee stink.

                    Car fragrances and deodorizers only seem to worsen the situation. Certainly, no one will ever want to ask you for a ride again.

                    So what can you do to get rid of these repelling odors once and for all?

                    Biocide Systems came up with the ultimate solution to this problem. The AutoShocker from Biocide Systems is guaranteed to eliminate any and all odors.

                    You may be thinking, what’s the secret?

                    The magic ingredient ClO2, or Chlorine Dioxide, is a chemical that is well known for its deodorizing properties.

                    The formula has been around for over 70 years. Limited to commercial application only, it has been effectively removing severe and toxic odors, and disinfecting water. 

                    Another feature, that sets this amazing odor removal product apart from other deodorizers, is that it is completely safe. Nor does it pose any threat to the environment by releasing carcinogenic substances into the air. It is a biodegradable, eco-friendly formula that evaporates within hours, leaving behind only salt and water.

                    It is also easy to use. Simply mix it with the amount of water specified on the jar, then place the jar inside the car. Make sure it is placed as close to the source of the offending smells as possible.

                    The product will efficiently penetrate deep into the pores and crevices, allowing ClO2 break up the bad smelling molecules and  neutralize them. The more severe the odors, the more time it will take, but rest assured, at the end of the day, your car will be smelling as good as new.

                  6. RoomShocker Eliminates Smell From Rooms

                    Imagine, your friend you haven’t seen in years invites you over to their place for dinner, and as you step foot in your beloved friends home, you notice an inescapable odor emanating from all over their house you just can’t brush off. Not only can you not escape this smell, you wouldn’t want to be rude by mentioning it to them either, so you patiently endure it until you leave. Now, assume this was your house.

                    You surely don’t want the same happening to you. So, let’s see how you can deodorize your room. First, know that deodorizing your room is equally important as deodorizing your body, because if you don’t freshen up your house, your nose progressively gets immune to the odor after some time, and then eventually stops bothering you.  When guests come over, they will immediately spot that smell the moment they enter your room, and if they don’t pretend and pinch their nose with their fingers, this is definitely going to leave you sinking in a pit of disgrace. It’s better to eliminate these odors before they cause you any embarrassment.

                    There are numerous sources in your house that can readily add to these bad odors. You’ve probably attempted getting rid of cooking smells, your dirty sock odors, and even your pet’s urine odor but to no avail. The reason for this is that you never actually get rid of the source. The key to an everlasting solution of this problem is to eliminate these smells by removing them from their origins. Yet, how this is possible is the big question that clouds your mind. You most likely want a solution with non-hazardous chemicals in it so that your environment and furniture does not get damaged or affected. Room Shocker of Biocide Systems is one such products which will help you.*

                    How to Deodorize Your Room Using Room Shocker?

This product is non-hazardous to its environment, and is simple to use. You can use it by mixing the product with water, then shake it thoroughly.

                  7. Easy Tips to Remove Bad Odor from Shoes

                    Entering your home, have you ever been through the experience of your nostrils flaring from the smell of garbage bins in your yard or from the odor of your pet’s urine?

                    Or when you begin to take off your socks, someone close by notices the unbearable smell coming from your socks and shoes.

                    Such scenarios are quite common and a bit embarrassing in any home.

                    Such circumstances can be a little humiliating if you have a gathering at your home. You definitely wouldn’t want your guests complaining about unpleasant odors.

                    To help with such inconveniences, here are some simple, yet important tips to remove these foul odors from your house. 

                    Removing Odors from Food Containers

                    You often forget to finish the contents of a food container, and when the expiration date has long passed, and it starts emitting an unfriendly odor, only then do you realize there is a stale food container hidden within that very cabinet.

                    To freshen up your food container, try doing the following:

                  8. How to Deodorize your car using Auto Shocker

                    Auto Shocker is the pioneer ClO2 odor eliminator when it comes to automobiles and is the solution to all of your car’s odor problems. We say this because this product has been especially designed for automobiles.

                    You’ve probably been through an embarrassing situation where picking up a friend in your vehicle, they may come across an overwhelming smell lingering in your car. If you own a pet that frequently travels with you, then being in such situations is inevitable.

                    Cigarette smoke is another problematic culprit that can easily plague your car, which can wind up smelling like an ashtray. Sometimes, you get accustomed to the odor of smoke since it has lodged itself in the upholstery of your car.

                    However, it’s not difficult for someone else to recognize the lingering odor as soon as they enter your car.

                    This is why we suggest using Auto Shocker. This product is the only effective solution out there for one simple reason – this product has not been designed to mask odors that become part of cars in mind.

                  9. Removing Cat Pee Odor the Right Way!

                    If you have a cat, you probably identify how feline pee odor can ruin your surroundings. This odor is quite stubborn and will definitely make an unpleasant lasting impression on your guest’s nostrils . If you’ve been ignoring this odor for too long, for the love of your cat and loved ones, it may be time to do something about it.

                    There is no denying the fact that  cat urine is a stubborn odor which requires immediate treatment for rapid results. If you delay the task, chances are you will only be able to temporarily remove the smell. As soon as any form of moisture comes in contact with that area, the odor will re-occur again.

                    Treating it quickly will also help prevent this excessive peeing activity in cats as they are used to urinating wherever they smell this particular scent.

                    So, here’re some home remedies to get rid of the odor of cat urine:

                    • If the cat has just urinated on the rug or carpet, absorb the stain with the help of paper towels, as much as you can.
                    • Next, place multiple layers of paper towels over that area. Apply pressure to the area  to fully absorb the wetness. Keep repeating this, until there is no sign of wetness and just the stain is left remaining.
                    • Then, use a dry vacuum extractor to remove the remaining cat urine.
                    • If you want to detect the remaining traces of urine from other areas of your house, use a UV or black light and the stains will illuminate under it. If you’re without a black light, you can always use your nose to find the source of the odor (we know this sounds totally disgusting).
                    • After, prepare a mixture of vinegar and water, both 50% in quantity. Spray the mixture to dampen the problematic source. Make sure that the mixture is sufficient enough to deeply penetrate the fibers of your carpet.
                    • Once the carpet has dried, use paper towels to blot it thoroughly. You may again use the vacuum extractor to remove excess moisture.
                    • Now, apply a handful of baking soda on the affected spot.
                    • Mix a quarter cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide along with a teaspoon of liquid detergent and pour this solution on baking soda. You may also use a spray bottle for drizzling.
                    • After you’ve rubbed the solution into the carpet, let it dry. As soon as it dries, use vacuum to extract the baking soda. The odor and urine will be absorbed by the baking soda and will be extracted out by your vacuum.
                    • You may also use a hard brush to loosen up the excess particles of baking soda.

                    The urine smell will soon be gone. However, this is applicable only if the urine is fresh. Make sure to not use caustic soda which is used in a dishwashing powder.

                    If you notice that this remedy does not work, then it means the odor has become stubborn and you will need a strong method to eliminate it. In such circumstances, you may use Room Shocker of Biocide Systems.
