CBS News How to Eliminate Smoke Odors/Smells Using Odorox Hydroxyl Processors
Well, you've heard about the warnings about smoking and secondhand smoke there is a new danger. Third hand smoke and you don't even have to be a smoker or even near a lit cigarette to be affected. It happens all the time. You open the door to a hotel room, a stairwell and apartment for rent or a house up for sale and you're hit with the stench of stale cigarette smoke. It does linger. It really is one of the most unpleasant odors and now it does more than just smell bad. New studies show it may actually be harmful to your health. Smoke doesn't leave a trace of smell and that smell is coming from clearly the chemicals that are deposited on the furniture. It's called third hand smoke. And doctors say it's that invisible mix of chemicals that cling to the contents of a room long after the cigarette has been put out there.
All of the nicotine type chemicals that can attach to the furniture. And here' are these cancer causing chemicals. At San Diego State University, researchers studied the homes of a hundred smokers and found long after they moved out, tobacco pollutants remained. We find these compounds in some apartments, six months, maybe even a year or longer. Additionally, researchers found that the new non-smoking tenants who did not smoke had significant levels of nicotine in their urine. I wouldn't want them to stay in a home that had a cigarette smoke smell in it. As chief of pulmonary medicine at St Luke's Roosevelt hospital, Dr Edward Eden says additional studies on the long term health impacts are still needed. But one thing is for sure he feels the less exposure to these toxins the better especially in children. We did notice upon taking the listing that there was some kind of an odor in the garage.
I'll need to find out that that's where the husband has to do with smoking. New Jersey realtor Linda Kimmel is not surprised to find out. Third hand smoke is dangerous. She says it's very hard to get rid of. It's really engulfed the entire house. That becomes a major problem. Now to help keep her business and her clients protected. Kimmel enlisted the help of some new technology, but literally works as a pack man coming out into the space to go on a search and destroy mission for any of these foul odors or pollutants that happened to be in a confined indoor space. Experts say this new generator uses naturally occurring molecules to attack the contaminants, the carpeting, the bedding, and the windows. If put anywhere in the room, this equipment, hopefully will be eliminating that odor and the health risks that are now being associated with it. Like the health hazards of secondhand smoke, which are highly documented. Experts say most people have no idea that breathing air in a room today where people smoked yesterday can harm your health. You can just open the window and it goes away and you live in an environment like this. You cannot escape it. Add another study suggested third hand smoke may actually become more toxic as the nicotine reacts with other gases.
Benefits of Odorox Technology, Testimonials from our Customers
Attention Odorox Air Technologies,
Thank you for providing us with 4 Hydroxyl Generators on your free trial offer late last month. Like others in the industry we are always seeking innovative technologies to advance our business and help us deliver improved quality to our customers. To say the least, we were very excited that a supplier would send us free tools at no risk to trial in our business.
If I told you the equipment has already paid for itself would you be impressed?
Timing is everything! In review of our sales, it looks like we have already billed close to $15,000.00. Your equipment came at a time when we had multiple tough odor related issues. Certainly we were at first skeptical when you told us that this equipment would be the last technology put on an odor job. Going forward it will now be the first!
We have improved some adjuster relationships as a result of our new ability to resolve some challenging odor issues. On one particular job we were not only successful using your technology but we saved our adjuster thousands of dollars in dry cleaning. He was so impressed he gave us another referral for a similar job just a few days later.
In conclusion let me just say I am extremely pleased with the equipments capabilities, my employee satisfaction with regard to this state of the art Green technology, and the incredible revenue they generate! What a great success story Ð not bad in 3 weeks!
On a final note, I do some customer service consulting so from that perspective I would say your customer service has been excellent. The equipment was hand delivered within days of the order. I have received multiple follow-up phone calls and emails.
Thank you for your solid customer service.
Thanks so much,

Dear Odorox Air Technologies,
I would like to thank you for introducing our hotel to your green technology for odor elimination. Traditionally I am very skeptical and not impressed easily when it comes to new technologies that claim to do so many wonderful things. Well, I can tell you that the job your Odorox machines have done removing odor on our smoking floor/hallways, guest rooms, ballrooms, and common areas has made me one of your strongest supporters. We set your machines up in a desired area and go about the rest of our daily duties. When we return a short time later the space smells fresh and revitalized and your Odorox machine is ready for its next challenge.
As the Director of Housekeeping at a very busy Hilton in Parsippany New Jersey I am regularly confronted with various odor challenges. Just recently we started refinishing our bathtubs in all of our guest rooms. We know from past experience that this process can create a strong chemical small that can make our guests and staff uncomfortable. Equipped with your machine I am happy to report these nuisance odors are things of the past.
Keeping our property smelling great is a key component to keeping our customers satisfied with the Hilton experience. I would like to thank Odorox for making my job just a little bit easier.
