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.
