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.

         Remove Smoke Odor

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. Nobody wants to live in an apartment that reeks of its former occupants, especially when those occupants used tobacco or had pets.

Vaportek fights foul odors like no other product on the market. For 35 years, Vaportek has been producing an eco-friendly product that Vaportek works on odors embedded into walls, unlike many other odor control services. These products work better than simple air fresheners; rather than covering foul smells, Vaportek's vapor encapsulates & neutralizes them.

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! Vaportek products are non-toxic, eco-friendly, made in the USA, and are backed by a 30 day guarantee, for claims involving the membranes, disks, and liquids used in the product, and a 5 year warranty for the equipment manufactured by Vaportek.

Odor Restoration Following Fire/Smoke/Flooding

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Sun, Aug 31, 2014 @ 14:08 PM

 

Vaportek Restorator - Odor Neutralizing System -Cigarette Smoke Odor Removal

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.

Eliminates All Types of Smoke Odor Quickly -Cigarette Smoke Odor Removal

Vaportek is effective on all types of smoke odor from lingering cigarette smells to difficult to combat protein residue smoke damage and everything in-between.

Eliminate Tough Organic Odors and Stains, With Digest Plus

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Wed, Aug 27, 2014 @ 15:08 PM

 

     Eliminate Tough Organic Odors and Stains With Digest Plus

"Digest Plus" is enzymatic and bacterial compound that digests organic matter and uric acid molecules, breaking them down and processing them through natural bioenzymatic action, just as they perform within the natural world. The bacteria soak up the material, then enzymes produced by the bacteria literally digest the organics, producing only water, carbon dioxide and more enzymes as by-products.

This microbial digester, eliminates the need for costly and toxic clean-up processes involving acids or industrial solvents. Commercial plants, industrial installations and food service operations are just a few of the industries that incorporate this environmentally friendly odor eliminator.

However, the practical applications are wide ranging and include school districts, military facilities, hospitals and more. Digest Plus can be used in industrial, institutional and commercial facilities to maintain restroom floors, using a standard mop. Apply directly to the affected surfaces with a sprayer or simply pour onto the specific area.

This incredible digester can be safely used to clean carpets as well, and it has met the DuPont test for use on 'New Generation' carpet, as it will not remove or alter its stain resistant properties. Each and every gallon of Digest Plus is certified to contain at least 250 billion bacteria that need food to grow and reproduce, making it the most effective cleaner for odors and stains that are seemingly impossible to remove.

Contact us today and learn how Digest Plus and its army of enzymes and bacteria can knock out the toughest odors and stains with minimal effort and no adverse affects on the environment.

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.

A Non Corrosive Acid Replacement Cleaner To Safeguard Your Lungs

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Wed, Jul 2, 2014 @ 16:07 PM

 

Most workers who handle chemical cleaners, especially acid cleaners, know it's not a good idea to inhale the fumes, and some have suffered burns or irritations when these agents have come in contact with their skin. Although the link between acid cleaners and health problems might be obvious, many people aren't aware that scientific research has documented this link for some time.

Studies in recent years -- particularly the report from the "Current Opinion in Allergy and Clinical Immunology in 2010*" -- have proved that employees who work with or near acid cleaners have developed asthmatic symptoms where none existed previously. Custodians in institutions are particularly at risk because of the frequency and quantity of exposure.

Researchers have known about these problems for much longer, however. In 2003, professor Kenneth D. Rosenman from Michigan State University established that 12 percent of asthmatic conditions documents in cases involving four states were all connected to chemical cleaners. A full four-fifth of these workers had not experienced asthmatic symptoms before.

F-2002, our acid replacement cleaner, safely opens clogged urinals without using harsh chemicals that hurt the health of the worker or damage the environment. F-2002 has the same strength of acid cleaners to remove uratic salts -- and the strong odors and slime build-up associated with clogged urinals -- but with the mildness of liquid dish soap, and without any of the chemicals that have been shown to aggravate asthmatic conditions.

F-2002 Removes Hard Water Scale, Uratic Salts & Cleans Grout

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Fri, Jun 27, 2014 @ 18:06 PM

 

uratic salts remover, dissolves uric salts

Hard water scale and encrusted build up on surfaces cause unsanitary issues and other safety concerns. For this very reason, it is important to use a product that removes hard water scale, cleans grout, soap scum, mold & mildew, while being both reliable and safe. While many businesses may use acidic cleaners, a mild yet effective acid replacement cleaner will be just as productive. F-2002, an acid replacement cleaner, cleans and descales urinals,as well as removing encrusted buildup, is an ideal and optimum product for industries looking for safer alternatives.

Hard water scaling is developed over time. For example, areas where there is continuous water flow (tiles, grouting, drains, etc.) may see some buildup in between tiles, drains, and surfaces. This is because water contains minerals, such as calcium, that will precipitate out of the water and slowly collect around surfaces. When water temperature is high (such as in  boilers), there will be a greater amount of minerals precipitating and forming on surfaces. Hard water scale can later prove to be a problem. A product that cleans and descales boilers can help prevent hard water scaling from building up and getting out of hand.

In restrooms and bathrooms, grout may develop on tiles due to hard water. When quarry and ceramic tiles are not regularly cleaned, buildup from dirt, grease, and soap can slowly ruin the tiles. Using a reliable product that cleans grout and tiles and removes hard water scale will be beneficial in the long-run. Neglected and dirty tiles will become weaker and more porous in time, making dirt trapped in the surface nearly impossible to remove. This buildup on the grout  or tiles, can leave stains that destroy the aesthetically pleasant and crisp look of a room. Use a cleaning product such as F-2002, that can help fight grease and grout and remove any unwanted mineral hardening on surfaces.

Since kitchens and food preparation rooms have constant contact with water, rust and grout may be present on preparation surfaces and sinks. The moisture, chemicals, and heat in a kitchen can quicken the rate of rust and grout forming. In addition to this, the grease and blood from food can react with surfaces and breed germs. It is vital for kitchen and food preparation surfaces to be cleaned daily if not more frequently. Using a product that cleans grout and removes hard water scale from surfaces, will help keep prevent the growth and transmission of bacteria.

 

In areas where hard water scale or grout is dominant, chemical cleaners are used in order to remove unwanted buildup. However, acid cleaners can be dangerous to a person’s health. If they are used on a surfaces that are in contact with food, food contamination might occur, which can cause harm to the general public (consumers).

A better solution would be to use an acid replacement cleaner, such as F-2002, to help clean tiles and boilers. F-2002  removes hard water scale, cleans grout, and cleans and descales boilers. As a dependable cleaning product, F-2002 can help industries in keeping their areas not just clean, but also safe.

F-2002 is used as an Uratic Salts Remover, for free flowing urinals.

Biostatic Surface Protectant -"BioProtect" AntiMicrobial Protectant

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Tue, Sep 11, 2012 @ 23:09 PM

"BioProtect" is an EPA registered antimicrobial protection for use in medical, schools, offices, animal care and other areas where odor causing bacteria, mold, E. coli, Salmonella & other bacteria is of concern.

BioProtect is a water based product that coats surfaces, both porous and non porous, to provide a long-lasting, highly durable, antimicrobial protection.

See technical data here

BioProtect will protect a wide array of bacteria including: mold, mildew, algae, and yeast.

BioProtect acts like a bed of microscopic spikes that pierce the cell walls of microbes. BioProtect is a totally new approach to providing long lasting Antimicrobial Protection. BioProtect is unique. One end of its molecule creates a strong bond with a multitude of surfaces, both porous and non-porous, forming a highly durable protective coating. The other end of the molecule forms a microscopic bed of spikes that punctures microbes like a bed of nails. BioProtect physically ruptures the cell walls of these microbes, without the use of poisons. Since BioProtect’s methodology is mechanical instead of a poison, it does not create “superbugs”, which are microbes that build up a resistance to treatment.

BioProtect molecular spikes are long chains of atoms that are large enough to pierce the cell walls of various microbes. Being only about one thousandth the diameter of a human hair,

they are too small to harm large cells in mammals. These chains of atoms carry a strong positive charge that attracts negatively charged bacteria. BioProtect has been found in independent

testing to be effective against a wide array of microbes, including Staphylococcus aureus, E. coli, various Salmonella strains, black mold, athlete’s foot, Influenza A, skin infections, and others.  See more information at: www.chemexindustries.com

 

BioProtect Graphic resized 600

When applied to a surface or incorporated into a material, Bio-Protect creates a Micro-biostatic Antimicrobial Coating on the surface that inhibits odor causing bacteria, mold and mildew.

The Micro-biostatic Antimicrobial Coating forms a protective surface protectant by forming a nano bed of spikes that disrupts the microorganism's membrane resulting in the loss of energy in the microbe and its demise.  This new technology provides a perfect approach to inhibiting microorganisms without the use of unsafe heavy metals or poisons.  This mode of action is entirely distinctive, compared to other antimicrobials.
