Remove Odors from Apartments and Real Estate for Sale

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

EcoVive will solve the environmental threats in one simple, non-toxic treatment.  Our proprietary spray system will destroy every odor in the apartment or house.  It will also decontaminate for pollutants, chemical residue, and drug contamination.  Our treatment will kill mold and mildew on contact, and kill all pathogens.

Aqueous Ozone Cleaning and Sanitizing

Aqueous OzoneLiquid Ozone

As a chemical-free cleaner and sanitizer, aqueous Ozone, or as it is sometimes called, liquid Ozone, is the new way to clean and sanitize. Liquid Ozone is a broad range anti-microbial agent that works faster and more effectively than chlorine bleaches against pathogens, and does not produce fumes and toxic residues like dioxins and tri-chloramines. Because of its toxin free sanitizing action, aqueous ozone is considered safe as a direct and indirect food additive by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) under its Organic Program. This Naturally occurring substance is one of the strongest oxidizing agents known, second only to fluorine in its speed and effectiveness.
The Xytoblast liquid ozone system is the new way to clean and sanitize. It is a non-chemical sanitizing system that can eliminate e coli, salmonella, and other bacteria from your facility. Our innovative system is FDA approved for food service areas, but versatile enough to treat nearly any cleaning and sanitizing problem. Our systems destroys the biofilm, pierces the outer membrane of bacteria, virus, and fungi; producing a remarkable level of sanitizing.

The Xytoblast liquid ozone system converts normal water into an oxygen-rich solution. As you might already know, oxygen is a fantastic oxidizer that will eat away almost any pollution or contaminant. The process is faster than chlorine products like bleach. While the EPA recommends 8-10 minutes of Dwell Time for cleaning products like bleach, our system kills pathogens 300 times better and 3000 times faster than bleach. Kill the worst pathogens in just 10 seconds, not 8-10 minutes required by the sanitizers you now use.
If you are interested in our Xytoblast liquid ozone system, give us a call. We would be glad to talk with you and give you a demonstration on how well this system works.

Liquid Ozone

Eliminate cleaning chemicals from the home

I have been testing a liquid Ozone machine designed for the home. I was interested to see if using liquid ozone could eliminate cleaning chemicals that are now used in most homes.

The technology for liquid Ozone, or as it is also referred to, Aqueous Ozone or Ozonated water,  has existed for more than 75 years. In fact, liquid ozone cleaning has long been used to clean swimming pools used in the Olympics. Many municipalities in the United States and Europe, including the City of Ann Arbor, also use the technology to sanitize drinking water. However, the technology only recently has become practicable for use in smaller applications like cleaning homes and restaurants.

Liquid ozone is created by introducing an extra oxygen atom to an oxygen molecule and water molecules. The instability of the third oxygen atom creates a high-quality cleaning agent in which atoms of oxygen search for something to bond with. As it searches, the oxygen atoms break up dirt bonds and combine with hydrogen and oxygen to create more molecules of water and oxygen while cleaning the surface in the same way as toxic cleaners, but naturally.

While liquid is not a “silver bullet” that can replace every single cleaning chemical, it can replace most. Once surfaces are clean, using liquid ozone in place of the toxic chemicals on a regular basis will eliminate the need for having to use the cleaners every time.

Liquid Ozone in the home

I have used the liquid ozone with just as good and sometimes better results as what a chemical cleaner can do. It has been used to remove pet stains from carpet and furniture, clean kitchens, bathrooms and blinds in the home.  Not only is it cleaning, it is eliminating all the germs and viruses on the surfaces.

With the home liquid ozone unit, not only can it be used for cleaning, it is also a great way to wash fruits and vegetables.  Most of the fresh fruit and veggies that are purchased have dirt, pesticides and other nasties on them. Using liquid ozone to wash them when you get them home will not only remove all these, it will also extend the life of the fresh produce. This happens because it kills the bacteria that are feeding on them.

The cost to purchase a liquid ozone unit for the home is more than offset by the savings you will see in the reduction of cleaning chemicals that you purchase. It is estimated that in 2009 the average family spent $659 annually on cleaning products.

If you would like to know more about liquid ozone, or are interested in purchasing a unit, contact EcoVive at 616-401-9176

Home allergy Testing

Home Allergy Testing

 

You notice while you are home that you feel lethargic, sneeze moreAllergy Relief Cleaning Services and watery eyes are common for you. This is not always the symptoms of a cold. Sometimes, it is an allergic reaction to something in the air in your home. According to The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) of the National Institutes of Health (an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services), allergic diseases are among the major causes of illness and disability in the United States, affecting as many as 40 to 50 million Americans. Health experts estimate that 35 million Americans suffer from upper respiratory tract symptoms that are allergic reactions to airborne allergens. The respiratory symptoms of asthma, which affect approximately 11 million Americans, are often provoked by airborne allergens.

With our indoor allergen testing, we can determine if high levels of allergens are present in your home or business and help you locate the source and eliminate it.

Allergies are a specific reaction of the body’s immune system to a normally harmless substance, one that does not bother most people. People who have allergies often are sensitive to more than one substance. Our inspectors can test for types of allergens that cause allergic reactions such as:

  • Pollens
  • House Dust Mites
  • Mold Spores
  • Animal Dander

The following signs and symptoms of airborne allergies are familiar to many:

  1. Sneezing, often with a runny or clogged nose.
  2. Coughing and postnasal drip.
  3. Itching eyes, nose, and throat.
  4. Watering Eyes.
  5. Conjunctivitis.

Knowing what is causing allergies is the first step in creating a healthy indoor environment.  Eliminating the allergen triggers can be done through proper cleaning, the use of the proper filters, and indoor air treatments that will eliminate most triggers.

Having your home or business tested for allergens is the first step to feeling better if you suffer from allergic reactions or if you suspect you may have allergies.

Serving all of Grand Rapids, and Western Michigan.

School Sanitizing

School Sanitizing

Enterovirus D68

Enterovirus D68 is going to sweep through our schools and daycare centers like a cruel stalker to make countless children very sick. Dozens of cases have already been confirmed.  While the reaction from school officials to a threat like this is to perform a school sanitizing by wiping every thing down with a bleach cleaner will help, it is not the best method. When school opens the next day the first infected child to touch a surface voids all cleaning efforts. This is because the bleach offers no lasting benefits. School sanitizing needs to go further than just bleach, it needs to offer a long lasting protection of all surfaces against germs and viruses.

We offer a better solution to fighting of these dangerous viruses.  With a treatment of our Biozone protectant, not only will a complete school sanitizing be performed, but also a layer of protection will be in place that is constantly fighting the reinfection of surfaces that have been treated.  Biozone protectant is a 24/7/365 germ fighting program, that can be applied to any surface, hard or soft. It is non-toxic, non-transferring and non-leaching. Once dry, there is no worries of little children putting things in their mouths.

If schools and daycare centers are sanitizing with bleach water they are doing o.k. But they need to be doing more. Bleach works, but it’s like the difference between a match and a blowtorch. A match will burn for a minute, but a blowtorch will burn for hours. If you are fending off a fierce threat, you do not want to use a match if you could be using a blowtorch.

School is in ! The Enterovirus is already spreading and making children seriously ill, and even killing some. EcoVive has an answer that will do the job of protecting our children.

Office Sanitizing Grand Rapids

Office Sanitizing Grand Rapids, MI

Office Sanitizing Grand Rapids, MI

 

Bacteria, germs and viruses can be discovered in every environment and are part of normal everyday life. Even in the cleanest environments, many kinds of microbes will begin to multiply on surfaces and sometimes reach harmful levels. If these contaminated surfaces are touched by individuals the transfer of microbes begins, resulting in cross-contamination. Pathogenic bacteria, such as MRSA, STAPH and E.coli can be spread via cross-contamination, which can lead to infection and illness in humans and animals.

EcoVive’s antimicrobial BioZone applications provide durable surface protection, continuously working 24/7 to inhibit the growth of microbes which can cause sickness, stains and odors. This protection will not wash off or wear away, giving it durable antimicrobial surface protection for three to six months.

The BioZone product molecularly bonds to treated surfaces, and can be applied to porous and non-porous surfaces, creating a microscopic layer of what could be described as a layer of nails that rupture the outer membrane of the bacteria, germs and viruses on contact. This type of protection does not rely on chemicals to protect but rather a mechanical process.

This means that every treated surface becomes a bacteria fighting part of infection control. Bacteria and germs simply have no safe place to land and colonize.

Protecting your office has never been easier, or more dependable than with an Antimicrobial treatment from EcoVive.

Sanitizing Service

Sanitizing Service

eco-vive.com

You have your home or office cleaned, but is it sanitized? Does your cleaning company disinfect your front door handle, chairs, couches, tables, bathrooms? In fact, or sanitizing service goes a step further than most traditional cleaning services in the fact that all surfaces are treated. Both hard and soft surfaces are sanitized. We can and we do!  Traditional cleaning methods are a small step in the right direction in the fight against bacteria. Yes these cleaners, including chlorine, will eliminate germs after a period of time, but are not as effective as ozone and BioZone. Traditional cleaning only affects about 30% of an indoor space. Effective sanitizing with household chemicals would require every square inch of surface be wiped. This would require a lot of time, money, and bring about major health concerns.  Ozone is 100% natural; no chemicals are introduced into your indoor environment.
Ozone is a broad base sanitizer. Ozone will disinfect 3000 times faster and is 50 times more powerful than chlorine bleach. It is a gas that will work on every surface and will penetrate soft surfaces (carpet, draperies, mattresses, furnishings). When the Ozone sanitizing treatment is complete, your interior will be 99.9% sanitized. Follow up with our BioZone treatment for 90 days of protection from germs, odors, mold, allergens, and disease.

We provide an ATP sampling/testing of high touch areas to show that our sanitizing system is working.  We will take readings before the treatment begins, and then again after the sanitizing service is complete. This way you know for sure that you are being protected from bacteria and germs.

Call EcoVive today for a free ATP test and an estimate!

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.

Antimicrobial Home Treatment

Antimicrobial Home Treatment

Antimicrobial Home Treatment

Do you have a clean home? We all know that our bathrooms are germ hotbeds, but did you know that many germs that will make you sick are lurking around your home in places you may never have considered?

 

Bacteria, fungus and germs can live in places you would normally consider clean. Our Antimicrobial Home Treatment can eliminate the germs.

 

A CLEAN KITCHEN SINK?

 

If you dropped a grape in your kitchen sink while rinsing it, would you think twice about popping it in your mouth? What if you dropped it in the toilet?

 

Although the thought of retrieving anything from your toilet bowl may be enough to make you sick, your toilet may be cleaner than your kitchen sink, says Eileen Abruzzo, director of infection control at Long Island College Hospital of Brooklyn, New York. Food particles from plates left to soak or rinsed from dishes on their way to the dishwasher can serve as a breeding ground for illness-causing bacteria, including E. coli and salmonella. They can get on your hands or spread to foods.

 

Although most people take steps to disinfect their toilet bowls, few give their kitchen sink the same consideration.  Many people will rinse their sinks, or wash them with soap and water. While they are clean, they are not sanitized.

 

YOUR SOFA MAY BE A HOTBED OF GERMS

 

A FAMILY sofa harbor’s more nasty bacteria than the average lavatory seat, a new study has found. Chair and sofa arms harbor 19,200 germs per 100 square centimeters – 12 times the amount on a lavatory seat, says the study carried out by Domestos and UNICEF

 

HIDDEN DANGERS IN YOUR BATHTUB

 

The place where you clean yourself is not so clean itself. According to WebMD, A recent study found staphylococcus bacteria in 26% of the tubs tested.

 

THE OBVIOUS PLACES OF GERMS

 

Then there are the obvious places where germs like to live – bathrooms, toilets, floors, door handles and others. These are the places that most people are already trying to keep clean.

 

Unfortunately, when using traditional cleaners, surfaces can get re-contaminated within minutes of being disinfected.

 

YOUR PATH TO A HEALTHIER HOME

 

EcoVive provides an Antimicrobial surface treatment program that is applied on common household surfaces that will inhibit odor causing bacteria, germs, viruses, mold and mildew.
