Remove Odors from Apartments and Real Estate

Building Odor Removal

Apartment Building odor removal

Before you cover the odors with paint, let us permanently remove the odors from your Apartment or Real Estate. Painting over odors only traps the odors, and many times once the paint dries the odor starts to leach out.   To prevent odors, managers will first paint a base coat of Kilz, then paint again with new paint. Instead of painting to get rid of the odors, let us treat the apartment or real Estate with our H202 Decon product. Not only will the odors be gone, mold and mildew will be eliminated, pathogens will be destroyed, and chemical residue it neutralized.  If the past tenants used drugs, this can be a very troubling liability if new tenants experience problems.

Marijuana odor removal

One of the primary functions of flowers is to create terpenes, odoriferous chemicals designed by nature to attract pollinators and ward off predators. These pungent compounds can be one of the best and worst parts of enjoying cannabis. The rich smell of fresh, sticky bud can be fantastic to a marijuana lover, but very objectionable by those who do not smoke pot.

Marijuana use is also routinely associated with other drugs, whether deservedly or not.  It is likely that a marijuana smell in an apartment or real estate for sale, would be one of many illegal substances a forensic analysis would turn up.  This is more than an odor issue.  There could be serious health problems by the next tenants if the problem isn’t fully treated.

Pollutants Removed

Home Purification Treatments

Home Purification Treatment

Indoor air pollution is recognized as one of the major health concerns facing the nation today causing Allergy Symptoms, Asthma, Headaches, Fatigue, Nausea and many severe and even unknown illnesses. The EPA estimates that the indoor levels of many pollutants are 2-5 times higher, and on occasion, 100 times higher than outdoor levels. Because of this, the EPA ranks indoor air as one of the top five environmental threats to human health. ). Further, the EPA has also stated that today’s homes contain an estimated 1,500 hazardous compounds from approximately 3,000 man-made products. In recent years, comparative risk studies performed by the EPA and its Science Advisory Board (SAB) have consistently ranked indoor air pollution among the top 5 environmental risks to public health.

An Ozone Home Purification Treatment, aka, Ozone Shock Therapy, can dramatically improve indoor air quality by destroying mold & mildew, pet odors, tobacco odors, living organisms, germs, viruses, harmful VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) etc., creating a much cleaner, safer atmosphere in your home and work environment. Ozone is a Natural Occurrence in Nature. It is produced by natural occurrences such as thunderstorms, lightning strikes and waterfalls. In fact, the fresh, clean-smelling air you breathe after a storm is a lingering result of ozone. We are pleased to provide this service improving the indoor air quality for you and your family.

Even low levels of pollutants produced by these products can affect human health over a period of months or years. Modern construction, our desire for more efficient homes, the resulting over-insulating and under ventilating of our homes have given rise to an explosion of molds and mildews, as well as other fungi, which are the cause of the swelling epidemic known as Sick Building Syndrome. Is your home or workplace making you sick?

Whether it is an odor problem or sick building syndrome there is now a solution to this modern day problem. We offer one of the safest and most effective procedures for purifying a home, office, vehicle or any indoor space of odors, allergens, airborne mold spores, dust mites and VOC’s that may be polluting your indoor environment.

Our Home Purification Treatment will ensure that the air you breathe is both clean and healthy.

Mold and Mildew Odor

Mold and Mildew Odor

Mold and Mildew Odor

Many people suffer from problems with mold and mildew odor in their homes. In their search for a way to rid the house of this unforgiving and difficult problem millions of dollars are spent and countless chemicals are introduced into their homes.  Mold is essentially a fungus and is found in areas where there is little ventilation and a warm, damp surrounding. Mildew is basically mold which has attached itself to some kind of material, mainly fabric and is usually found on carpets, rugs, clothes, towels and linens. Mold and mildew odor is a problem in many households and is difficult to get rid of completely. As well as mold and mildew odor being unpleasant to our senses, it can also be dangerous to people with allergies as it contains irritants and toxins which can be harmful. In most cases of mold and mildew odor, traditional deodorizers and cleaning equipment won’t get rid of it completely, it is important to make sure that all of the molecules and bacteria are removed; the best way to achieve this is by using ozone technology to eliminate mold and mildew completely.  Ozone is normal oxygen (O2) that has an extra oxygen atom (O3), but that extra oxygen atom is just along for the ride.  It is easily detached and then reattaches to any odor, microbe, fungi, or pollution threat.  Oxygen is good at oxidizing (another form of burning) that converts whatever it finds into an oxidized byproduct.

EcoVive is your West Michigan Odor Control specialist that uses Ozone to remove mold and mildew odor.  This is not another chemical being introduced into your home, it is a naturally occurring gas that does the work, leaving behind no harmful chemical residue.

If you have mold and mildew odor that need to be taken care of, give us a call 616-401-9176 or visit our website at: eco-vive.com

Don’t sell a smelly house in Grand Rapids

Smelly houses don’t sell

eco-vive.com

Houses smell.  Yes, even yours. Oh, they don’t all smell bad…but they all carry their own smell.  A smell called the Loss of a Sale if it stinks. Unfortunately, in the rush of preparing a home for sale, house smells are the last things sellers seem to think about. Probably because most people can’t smell their own stinky home.

No matter how diplomatic an agent tries to be when listing a stinky house, telling a seller their home smells bad seems to offend them more than telling them their home is worth less than they thought.  Maybe it’s because when you live in your home you become immune to the smells that “outsiders” definitely notice. Please, don’t shoot the messenger!  Your Realtor is just trying to help you get your house sold and a house that smells is going to be a problem.

Some of the most deadly (yes, they could kill the sale of your home) smells are the obvious ~

  • The worse of the worst…Cigarette or cigar smoke
  • Pets smells and litter boxes
  • Mothballs

Then there are the subtle smells that can also be a turnoff

  • Dirty sheets/laundry
  • Moldy smelling bathrooms
  • Dirty Diapers
  • Weird cooked food smells (by the way never cook fish or cabbage while trying to sell your home)
  • Garbage cans (empty them every day)
  • Over-compensating with too many air fresheners or candles can offend a sensitive nose and make a buyer wonder what you’re covering up.

So..if you’re selling your home, go outside to clear your nasal passages, then step inside and take an impartial whiff or ask someone you trust to do it for you.  Heck, you could even ask your Realtor!

The last thing you want to do is have a potential buyer turned off because of a smelly house. Most of the time a good cleaning will take care of the offending smells, but sometimes professional help is needed. Odors have a way of seeping into everything, carpet, furniture, all the little cracks and crevices in your home.

Our Ozone home treatment will eliminate all the smells in your home, leaving it scent free. Think about it, a buyer walks into your home and the only smell they notice is the fresh bouquet of flowers. They will automatically think the home is well cared for.

Odor Removal Grand Rapids

Odor Removal Grand Rapids

One question that people have about having an ozone treatment is exactly how ozone is able to remove odors from houses, cars, clothing, etc.  Basically ozone works by destroying the molecules, bacteria, and spores that cause unpleasant smells.  Ozone (O3) is a highly reactive molecule and is very quick to chemically react with particles that it comes into contact with in the air and on surfaces.  The extra oxygen atom in the ozone attaches itself to other molecules, chemically changing their structure to create non-offensive molecules – eliminating the smell

When considering bacteria and spores the same process applies, with ozone attacking the outer shell of the cell causing it to break down.  When the outer shell degrades, the cell itself breaks apart and dies.

With this in mind, it makes sense that a situation with stronger odor (and more odor-causing molecules or particles) requires more ozone to remove the smell, there needs to be enough ozone to react with all of the offensive molecules it encounters.  This requires either a longer ozone treatment or higher concentrations of ozone.

The reason that ozone is effective in these situations is because, as a gas, ozone effectively “cleans” any place that air can go.  This includes air, walls, ceilings, ductwork, carpet fibers, gaps between floorboards, cracks in walls, and more.  Ozone is able to penetrate into these areas and destroy odors that it finds there.

So how does ozone get rid of smells?  It chemically breaks down odor-causing molecules in any area where air is allowed to flow.
