ODOROX® Neutralization of Micro-Organisms, Viruses,
and Mold Species
Restoring The Balance™
In addition to our services to provide relief from disaster situations such as fires or floods, the
HGI ODOROX® network has staffed departments to offer neutralization of micro-organisms
such as bacteria, virus and fungal species.
Our ODOROX® trained technicians are experienced in the neutralization of not only airborne micro-organisms but can neutralize micro-organisms on surfaces. The ODOROX® technology does not use chemicals, but instead utilizes ODOROX® hydroxyls to neutralize and balance the environment… This is how HGI and its dealers use the RESTORING THE BALANCE™ service to neutralize these micro-organisms that are airborne and on surfaces.
Here are just a few examples of environments that we can successfully treat:
2008: COSTCO FIRE [Miami, Florida]
• 7,000,000 cu ft Costco and all of its contents incurred heavy smoke damage
• Business Interruption – $1,000,000 per day
• Store was projected to be closed for remediation for up to a month
• ODOROX® Hydroxyl Generators were installed the afternoon following the fire
• Store reopened for business as usual in 36 hours
• ODOROX® Hydroxyl Generators operated and treated the facility while the public shopped
For over millions of us, hotels become our temporary home. Guests expect to arrive to a clean and fresh environment. The five second touch rule is a myth… bacteria can live for over 4 weeks on most surfaces. Think about the number of germs and virus that you are exposed to especially when you touch that remote control, desk surface, light switch or walk bare foot on the carpet. Guests end up getting sick after their stay at many of these hotels.
Many hotel/motel owners recognize the problem and have called in our ODOROX® trained technicians to neutralize not only airborne micro-organisms, but to neutralize viruses on surfaces. ODOROX® hydroxyls are used to neutralize and balance the environment… The optimal ‘balance’ of hydroxyls in nature is 2.6 million hydroxyls per cubic centimeter. Deployment of ODOROX® devices returns the concentration of hydroxyls inside a building envelope in ‘balance’ with nature. This is how our ODOROX® dealers are using the RESTORING THE BALANCE™ odor and neutralization service to restore our indoor environments back in balance like in nature.
Recently the ODOROX® technology was applied to the reduction of bacterial and fungal pathogens on plant material from sprouted barley processing. Random samples of fresh sprouts removed in the processing of sprouted barley were exposed to atmospheric hydroxyls from an MVP14™ ODOROX®unit over a period of 2 to 96 hours. Kills rates in excess of 99.9% were measured by a licensed testing laboratory for the following pathogens. No fungal growth was detected on any samples after six hours of treatment. The pathogens were:
• Aspergillus niger
• Candida krusei
• Trichosporum beigelii
• Rhodotorula glutinous
• Acinetobacter baumannii
• Enterobacgter agglomerans
• Enterobactger clocae
• Bacillus sp.
Once again the ODOROX® technology was used in our RESTORING THE BALANCE™ service to kill these micro-organisms and pathogens.
