How to Eliminate/Get Rid of Trash Odors, Trash Can Smells, Trash Compactor Smell, Trash Room Odors, Garbage Room, Garbage Shoot
Both garbage compactor rooms and your home trash can smell awful, making you hold your breath whenever you need to put trash in the can or in the room. This confuses a lot of people, because they didn’t put anything in the trash that smelled so bad, and this makes them wonder not only what causes the smell, but also how to eliminate trash odors.
Some of the things that you put in your trash, such as paper, plastic packaging, or bits of lint won’t contribute to the awful odor that trash can have. Rather, it is food waste and other biodegradable items that will cause your trash to smell so bad when they are in your can. Because biodegradable items will break down slowly, which releases unpleasant chemicals, and because they will be consumed by microorganisms, you need to know how you can battle these unpleasant smells.
Unfortunately, it’s not easy to immediately pinpoint what is causing such a horrid smell in your trash, which makes it tricky to know how to get rid of trash odors.
Because certain compounds have different “odor thresholds” – which is the amount of the compound that has to be present in order for us to smell it, different compounds will be obvious to us at different levels. Some compounds create offensive odors, even when there are small levels of them in the air, while others need to saturate the air before we notice them.
Even though compounds will vary in the amount of odor that they produce, there are some that make the biggest contributions to the odors of your trash. Compounds that contain sulfur smell very bad, and this smell is very recognizable. When you have methanethiol anddimethyl sulfide in your trash then the odor will be like rotten cabbage. On the other hand, hydrogen sulfide tends to smell like rotten eggs. Even just a few micrograms of these odors in your home will smell very strong and be unpleasant for you to deal with,
which is why trash starts to stick so quickly.
Additionally, some nitrogen-containing compounds will create bad smells in your home. Amines, cadaverine, and putrescine are all created when meat decomposes, so any packaging that held meat, steaks, or burgers can all start to smell quickly.This leaves people wondering how to get rid of trash room odors, as they can be so strong. It’s normal for these to smell of rotting meat and to be very offensive.
Unfortunately, there are other compounds that can create horrid odors, including ammonia. While ammonia has a fairly high threshold, it will add to the overall foul odor from your trash. It’s normal to have a lot of this smell when you had fish that you threw away, as it is caused by trimethylamine.
Other compounds can contribute the odors that you smell from your trash, including terpenes, aldehydes, and carboxylic acids. These are all very pungent when concentrated and can add to the odors you smell. Additionally, the smell of vinegar from acetic acid, a vomit smell from butanoic acid, and a rancid smell from propanoic acid are all common.
Many people wonder how to eliminate compactor room odors and trash room odors and how they can combat the smells that come from their trash. Remember that the warmer your trash can or the trash room is, the faster that your organic matter with decompose and begin to smell. By separating food waste from regular household trash you can cut down on the amount of smelly waste that is in your trash can. The other important thing to do is to make sure that you take your trash out on a regular basis.
This will remove any odors from your home. If you’re still having problems controlling the odors in your house because of your trash, then you need to consider installing a Hydroxyl Processor, as these will eliminate organic compounds naturally. This is the best way to combat any foul odors from your trash and to make sure that you don’t have to deal with the smells. Processors from Odorox/Pyure are able to remove all trash odors in a safe and natural way so that you don’t have to worry about the odor spreading through your home.
It was with great skepticism when I first inquired about your Hydroxyl Generators since I've heard of so many products claiming to eliminate odors. A friend with a DKI business in North Carolina originally sparked my interest in the product. I had knowledge of it but was always hesitant because of the 'too good to be true' adage. His recommendation of the product prompted me to make the call.
We received the Boss and Boss XL3 in time to try it on its first job which happened to be sewer. A noticeable difference was evident by our staff and by the owners of the structure. After a thorough cleaning and sanitizing the Boss XL3 eliminated any residual odors.
Next the generators were put on a kitchen fire job with similar results. As we were working there with the machine running we noticed a drastic reduction in odor. After all was cleaned the generator ran for one more day and the odor was nonexistent.
A protein fire followed, then a suicide cleanup, a skunk spray in a home and finally 2 more sewer jobs. I am thrilled to report excellent results in each and every one of those jobs. Our latest client described the sewer odor in her home as 'a million times better' after the introduction of the Hydroxyl generator.
This is definitely going to eliminate the need for some of the other so called deodorizing machines. I am next looking forward to trying the MDU unit in the Health Care Industry. We are very excited about these products and their uses.

Thank you for selecting Angels to test your Odorox Hydroxyl Generator in our hair and beauty salon during the month of November. As you know Hair Salons are full ofVOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds) and other difficult odors derived from chemical solutions used on a variety of applications such as perms. Some of these odors are nearly impossible to get out and at times can be irritants to my employees or customers.
Your machine was simply amazing, not only did it get the airborne odors out of the ambient air in only a few hours, but after operating over night all of the odors were eradicated from the walls, surfaces and furniture. Each morning we came into an
. odorless sanitized environment that felt fresh and clean. We don't understand how you got the odors out of the furniture without it passing through the machine but we can't complain about the result
When you informed me that the elevated oxygen that emits from the machine would eliminate the tiredness we all feel by the end of the day I didn't believe you. Well I must
say I will never doubt you now, the clean oxygen rich air not only surprised me in how it eliminated my normal afternoon fatigue but other customers commented on it
Thank you once again for showcasing your technology in our facility.
