Apartment Complex Stain & Odor Control: A Safe & Effective Solution

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Thu, May 5, 2016 @ 10:05 AM

AdobeStock_103160240.jpegIn 2015 rental apartment communities spent $634 per unit on maintenance.  This accounted for 4.7% of GPR (gross potential rent).  Nearly 5% of an apartment community’s revenue is going to maintenance and repair each year.  The demand for apartments has skyrocketed over the past 2 years and is expected to continue to grow.  Younger people finishing school are delaying marriage, paying student loan debt and opting to rent over purchase.  Managing this growth as an apartment complex can pose some challenges; one of the biggest is cost control. 

Of the $634 per unit maintenance average, a costly percentage of that is removing and replacing carpeting due to stains and odors.  According to carpetsupersite.com, apartment grade carpet (depending on traffic rating) can cost $7 to $10 per square yard.  Add another $2 per square yard for padding and another $3 per square yard for installation, and that can be an expensive undertaking.  However there is a way to save carpet from unsightly stains and pet odors. 

Odors are caused by bacteria.  Specifically, pet and urine odors are caused by uratic salt crystals.  When it comes to urine odor the only way to remove the uratic salt crystals, and hence the smell, is to use an enzyme based cleaning product.  Enzyme based cleaning products use good bacteria to remove harmful and stubborn stains and odors through a bio enzymatic action.  This is exactly what Digest Plus does.


Digest_Plus-Qt.jpgDigest Plus – Odor Digester

The bacteria contained in Digest Plus absorbs the organic base of stains and odors.  These same bacteria produce an enzyme that liquefies and literally digests the harmful bacteria and uratic salt crystals.  This is a totally effective and safe solution to stains and odors.  This process neither contains, nor produces, any harmful chemicals, pollutants or reactions; it only leaves carbon dioxide, water, and more enzymes.  Every gallon of Digest Plus contains 250 billion bacteria.  This bacteria needs food to grow and multiply, their food is the bacteria and salts that are creating the odors and stains on your carpet.   These odors and stains are otherwise impossible to remove. 

So the next time you find some problem areas on one of your unit’s carpet, instead of replacing it, eliminate it.  Digest Plus is the safe and effective process that permanently removes the source of odors.  Since 1973 Chemex Industries has been providing safe, environmentally friendly, industrial cleaning solutions.

Controlling Odors and Stains: A Safe and Organic Approach

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Mon, Feb 29, 2016 @ 11:02 AM

Dollarphotoclub_68383039.jpgStains happen.  It’s almost an inevitable and incessant occurrence in both your home and your business.  Of course based on your industry, the origin, variety and severity of these stains will vary.  However, the bottom line is they need to be controlled and removed.  This is also especially true for odors.  Just like stains, odors have an array of sources, causes and consequences.  It is because of these reasons that the stain and odor removal business is a multi-million dollar enterprise.  In a climate where more and more businesses are seeing increased competition and decreasing margins finding cost savings has never been more important.  However, ignoring odors and stains, or opting for a smaller maintenance budget at the expense of efficacy is not an option, it is also unsafe.

Let’s take a quick look at what causes odors and stains, as well as what removes them.  Today just about every odor control product makes claims using these buzz words: odor neutralizing, kills odor at the source, not a cover-up, etc.  So with all of these options, which one will work for your problem? The answer to this question lies at the source of your odor.

Many odors and stains stem from common problem areas that are found in just about any and every facility.  Restrooms (around toilets, urinals and sinks), traps, drains and grease traps are just a few general locations that can create odor and stain issues.  In these areas bacteria and other organic materials create odors as well as stains.  Many odor control products attempt to mask the odor with a more pleasant smell or annihilate it with chemicals.  However there is a safe, sanitary and environmentally friendly way to completely remove and end these odors.  It comes from fighting bacteria with bacteria.

It’s important to realize that there are 2 types of bacteria: good & bad.  Good bacteria gives us things like beer, cheese and antibiotics.  Bad bacteria gives us things like disease.  Using good bacteria to consume the harmful organics that create stains and emit odors is not only a healthy method, but actually ends both stains and odors.

Digest Plus Odor Digester

The digestion method employed by Digest Plus uses specific bacteria and enzymes to actually consume odor causing material.  The enzymes produced by Digest Plus actually liquefy and digest these materials as food.  The only sub product of this reaction is harmless carbon dioxide, water and more beneficial enzymes.  By not using any chemicals and producing innocuous byproducts, Digest Plus is safe to use on any surface and poses no safety concerns. 

Not only are the bacteria used effective at removing stains and odors they are also good (not just safe) for the environment.  These bacteria all exist naturally and are non-harmful to humans or animals.  Once implemented they release their enzymes, digest harmful material and multiply.

Not only will stains and odors be removed from floors and hard surfaces, but Digest Plus can help to clear drains and remove stubborn stains from carpet and other fabrics.  Anywhere organic materials create stains and odors, Digest Plus can be applied and will safely remove them.

Digest Plus is one of the many effective, safe, and eco-friendly products available from Chemex Industries.  Each gallon is certified to contain 250 billion bacteria. This odor digester can rid your facility and business of stains and odors.  Health facilities, government agencies, schools, municipalities, food service facilities and a variety of other industries can all leverage these products for a safer, cleaner environment.

In any industry, first impressions are everything, and one of the first things your renters notice about their new home is the way it smells.

Vaportek works on odors embedded into walls, carpet, upholstery, and other porous materials that may have been contaminated by the scents put off by animals or tobacco smoke. The compound works quickly, without generating ozone or causing damage to furniture or the structure itself.

But common, everyday, human & cooking odors aren't the only thing Vaportek works to combat; Vaportek can also be used to eliminate odors left behind after flooding or fires. Smoke odor removal, including cigarette smoke odor removal, is incredibly important in the restoration process.

Once Vaportek has been utilized, the offensive smell is gone!

Repairing and rebuilding your apartment building after a fire can be a daunting experience. There is so much to do, and even after all the construction is done, there is still the issue of lingering smoke odors to deal with.

Smoke can be a very difficult odor to remove. Just ask anyone who has tried to clean a unit that was inhabited by cigarette smokers. A building fire can leave many areas reeking of smoke, even if they were not structurally damaged. Smoke odor removal is especially difficult because of the small partical size of smoke - less that 5 microns. To remove smoke odor, a vapor, like that generated in the Vaportek product, with the ability to penetrate the building materials, damaged by the smoke odor, is a necessity.

Effectively Remove Smoke Odors With a Nontoxic Solution

Vaportek Restorator Odor Neutralizing System can combat the most intense odors including smoke odors from fire damage. While construction and labor are obviously the biggest costs in restoring livability to your building, recovery periods necessary after using harsh chemical cleaners can add to your costs, by making it take longer to get tenants back in the building.

Vaportek Odor Neutralization is nontoxic and requires no evacuation or recovery period during or after use. This means you can get paying tenants back in the building quicker and reduce your financial burden, after a fire.

Digest Plus Eliminates Pet Waste in Carpets

Bioenzymatic Odor Digester Safely Eliminates Malodors and Waste

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Thu, Aug 14, 2014 @ 14:08 PM

 

DIGEST PLUS Bioenzymatic Odor Digester Safely Eliminates Malodors and Waste Materials

Whether you operate a daycare facility, school, nusrsing home, kennel, or any vocation where the volume of activity: patients, accidents, food waste, etc. contribute to the build-up of malodor; the application of a safe and effective odor eliminator is a necessity. Too often, facility crews waste effort and money, on odor-masking products, that promise to eliminate smells, but really only cover them up for a brief time. A better – and much more cost-effective – solution is the use of an enzyme digestant that digests malodors and waste on contact.

Science backs up this theory. When you consider that harmful bacteria cause countless disease, while beneficial bacteria have actually been harnessed in the production of healthy foods, it makes sense to take a closer look at this second group of microorganisms. When concentrated and put to good use in a concerted action against foul odors, these good bacteria fight persistent bad smells with safe, bio-enzymatic action.

There are no toxic byproducts to this process. Since these specific types of bacteria target odor-causing organic matter and simply digest it, the resulting byproducts are little more than water, harmless enzymes and carbon dioxide, which dissipates quickly. By targeting the root of the odor versus just masking the presence of organic matter that creates the stench, you not only freshen the air in your facility but also clean it up, at the same time.

Bio-enzymatic odor digesters go to work in upholstery and fabrics, which are notoriously difficult to clean with other commercial cleaners. Toilets, walls and floors are also good candidates for this type of cleaner. While the odors are being removed, the bacteria do away with their foundation, such as urine, vomit, feces, food and other organic matter. Since the use of these bacteria do not require the addition of caustic cleaning agents that could damage fabrics and other sensitive surfaces, these odor digesters can go to work anywhere there is a foul smell.

"Digest Plus" is not intended for application as an space spray. Simple use on surfaces and specifically sub-surfaces, such as grout, concrete, fabrics, mattresses, hockey bags, etc.

Our municiapal customers tell us that they derive immediate results, when spraying Digest Plus, an enzyme producing bacteria, on cinder block/concrete walls that have been urinated on. Apartment and Hotel housekeeping maintenace use Digest Plus, for odor removal and to control pet accidents, urine & feces in carpeting and even groundcover & shrubbery.

Chemex Industries is an industry leader for safe and effective cleaning products that are appropriate for use in schools, food service establishment and health care facilities. Contact us today for more information on how enzyme digestants can make a huge impact on any odor problem.

Digest Plus Enzyme Producing Bacteria: Safe to Use

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Tue, Aug 5, 2014 @ 17:08 PM

Digest Plus Enzyme Producing Bacteria - Works on Surfaces & Sub Surfaces

Contains over 200 billion enzyme producing bacterial per gallon.
Proven to eliminate lasting odors on contact.

"Digest Plus" Enzyme Producing Bacteria harnesses the power of safe, natural bacteria to remove/digest the odors associated with organic-based materials. It contains no heavy chemical scents, that just cover odors. The odor disappears, when the organic matter is dissolved/digested by the bacterial enzymes.

The bacteria in Digest Plus are in spore form; a dormant state inside the container. This allows for Digest Plus's very long shelf-life. Once they are released and come into contact with the organic matter, the bacteria come out of dormancy and go to work. Organic-based food & stains are food to these bacteria, allowing them to grow and multiply. They release specific enzymes that break down organic matter so that they can make use of the nutrients trapped inside. Food mass and stains are dissolved by these enzymes; then the bacteria digest the liquified organic matter, leaving behind nothing but carbon dioxide, water. Once the food mass or stain is gone, the odor is gone for good.

Because Digest Plus contains no chemicals, it is safe to use on surfaces that will not be damaged by water. There is no residue left behind; only carbon dioxide, water and enzymes that will wash away. The active bacteria will digest and remove odors caused by body fluids, food and drink and other organic materials. Use it in restrooms, in and around urinals and toilets to get rid of stubborn stains and persistent odors. It is safe to use in drains and traps; it's digestive action helps keep drains free-flowing, including grease traps. It can be used safely on carpets and fabrics. It's natural enzymatic action makes it safe for use in kennels to remove stubborn odors, especially concrete. Use it virtually anyplace where organic materials leave stains and odors behind.

Digest Plus is safe for humans. These are strains of bacteria present in nature and do not pose a danger to humans. The bacterial strains used are also safe for the environment; as a matter of fact, they are good for the environment. Once released back into nature they continue to release their enzymes, digest organic matter, and multiply.

Chemex supplies environmentally safe products to industry, health facilities, government agencies, food service, schools and organizations. Contact us for all of your maintenance needs.
