While you alone can’t eliminate germs and odors from doctors’ offices, there are a few steps that you can take to minimize the risk of you getting sick while getting medical care: Get a flu shot before ever going into a waiting room. Flu shots can either prevent you from getting sick or greatly decrease the length and severity of flu symptoms that you have. If you can’t avoid the waiting room during flu season, then try to be smart about when you have an appointment. It’s a good idea to schedule annual appointments when the flu isn’t in your area, but if you are sick then try to go to the doctor very early in the morning or late in the day when the waiting room may not be as busy.
Avoid touching items that carry a lot of germs, such as magazines, elevator buttons, and railings. If you do touch them then make sure that you don’t touch your eyes, nose, or mouth, as this will allow bacteria and viruses to enter your body. Additionally, make sure to always wash your hands thoroughly after touching shared items. Take advantage of a “well” waiting room if your doctor provides one so that you are not surrounded by so many germs. While there is no such thing as a germ free dr./doctor office, this will limit your exposure. If necessary, use a mask or clean tissue to breathe to avoid germs in the “sick” waiting area.Consider waiting outside or in your car if the waiting room is very full. Most staff is happy to call you when the doctor is ready,especially if they have been running late. The American Academy of Pediatrics has recently updated their recommendations on how to prevent germs from spreading while you are at the doctor. Not only should staff get all recommended immunizations, but it’s important that waiting rooms have masks and sanitizer provided for patients. Additionally, doctors need to remove all plush toys from the waiting room, as these can be difficult to clean.
Everyone has to go to the doctor at some point, and following these steps will help to ensure that you do not get sick while you are there. No matter whether you need a physical, are ill, or need a sports check-up, staying healthy at the doctor can be tricky. Doctors generally see around 2,300 patients. This means that in a practice with more than one doctor that this number will increase exponentially. Primary care doctors generally see around 20 patients a day, but during flu season that number will jump dramatically, resulting in overcrowded waiting rooms and more germs in the area.Everyone has to go to the doctor at some point, and following these steps will help to ensure that you do not get sick while you are there.

The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Provention) recommends washing hands with soap and water to combat C-diff, as this bacteria is unharmed by alcohol-based hand sanitizers. To avoid C-diff and other dangerous bacteria, make sure that you do not touch items in the waiting room, wash your hands regularly, and do your best to avoid going to the doctor during particularly busy times so that you can avoid contact with as many germs and as much bacteria as possible.

I have ten years experience as an estimator, trainer, and general manager of a 3 million dollar+ cleaning and restoration firm. As a Certified Restorer I have never endorsed one product over another. I have always believed that there were products available laterally that were as good what was being offered at the time.
After using your Odorox machines my opinion has changed. We recently put them to the test by placing them in a basement that had a fire..before we tore out! The Odorox completely eliminated the smoke odor. I thought for sure the odor would return when we tore out the drywall but it didnÕt. This was great since we had spaced sheathing with felt paper and hardwood above it. We were able to eliminate the odor without removing the floors! I believe you may have found the next 'sliced bread'.

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.
