04/12/2021 Newark Public Schools to Install 4,500+ Odorox Air and Surface Sanitation Systems to Help Students and Faculty Return to the Classroom Safely
Newark Public Schools officially welcomed back students and staff to begin in-person learning for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic struck in March of 2020. To do this, Newark's Board of Education— which represents the largest school district in N.J.— implemented a comprehensive plan to reopen schools, including strict COVID-19 protocols and sanitation procedures and a renewed focus on air quality and surface hygiene. To ensure this, Newark tapped Bio-Shine Inc., and installed more than 4,500 Odorox air purifiers, powered by PYURE Technology, in PK-12 classrooms, offices and other high-traffic areas throughout the district.
12/24/2020 Aerosol and Surface Stability of SARS-CoV-2 as Compared with SARS-CoV-1 | NEJM
Scientists studied the plausible transmission of SAR-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, through aerosol and fomites on various surface types in an aerosolized environment. The results found that the virus can exist in aerosols for hours and surfaces for days…
12/14/2020 An airborne pathogen requires an air sanitization solution
Dr. Fauci explains to Matthew McConaughey (Now This) that transmission by touching inanimate surfaces is now considered to be a very small percentage of COVID-19 cases (see first 90 seconds in the video), yet most “solutions” in the market to-date only address surface sanitization. PYURE is one of the only technologies to have demonstrated the rapid destruction of airborne SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19), killing 99% of a very high concentration of the aerosolized COVID-19 virus in only 20 minutes.
12/03/2020 A Room, A Bar and A Classroom: How the Coronavirus is Spread Through the Air
The risk of contagion is highest in indoor spaces but can be reduced by applying all available measures to combat infection via aerosols. Here is an overview of the likelihood of infection in three everyday scenarios, based on the safety measures used and the length of exposure.
As we approach the end of 2020, and a year since the outbreak of COVID-19 began, cases are increasing again. We have learnt a lot about SARS-CoV-2 and our ability to test for and mange COVID-19 has improved, but ongoing debate remains about how SATS-CoV-2 is transmitted.
12/02/2020 It Is Time to Address Airborne Transmission of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
An open letter to the World Health Organization from 239 scientific experts.
We appeal to the medical community and to the relevant national and inter- national bodies to recognize the potential for airborne spread of coronavirus dis- ease 2019 (COVID-19).
12/01/2020 Purifier Kills 99% of Airborne SARS-CoV-2 in 20 Minutes and Virus is No Longer Detected in Air After 80 Minutes; Purifier Kills 99% of SARS-CoV-2 on Surfaces in 1 Hour and Virus is No Longer Detected on Surfaces After 3 Hours.
The PYURE Company announced that a recently completed study conducted by a certified, biosafety level 3 laboratory demonstrated that a portable commercial air purifier rapidly and dramatically destroys SARS Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the virus that causes COVID-19, both in the air and on surfaces.
11/18/2020 The Coronavirus Is Airborne Indoors. Why Are We Still Scrubbing Surfaces?
Scientists who initially warned about contaminated surfaces now say that the virus spreads primarily through inhaled droplets and that there is little to no evidence that deep cleaning mitigates the threat indoors...
07/30/2020 HGI Industries Inc Has Changed its Name to The PYURE Company.
HGI Industries Inc. announced today that it has changed its name to The PYURE Company (“PYURE”). PYURE will continue to market its Odorox® line of products, which it has been selling for over 15 years. Odorox® products are now co-branded with the Powered by PYURE TechnologyTM trademark, to identify the unique hydroxyl technology inside every device.
My husband and I recently purchased a condominium apartment which has a few severe issues. Firstly, it had yellow nicotine covered ceiling, walls and air vents. Secondly, there was extensive soiled broadloom throughout. The odor in the dwelling was a sickly combination of nicotine, animal waste, and extreme mustiness due to the animal refuse/waste.
The previous owner was a chain smoker. She resided in this 2,400 square foot, three level condominium for just over 13 years. The areas most affected by the nicotine were the kitchen, dining room and the family room. Further, the dwelling was vacant for over one year. This resulted in the nicotine, animal excrement and dirt compounding over time and spider webs and a thick layer of dust had visibly accumulated on the ceilings and walls.
We started by scrubbing every surface. The ceilings once cleaned were still yellow and the nicotine odor was still very strong. One could not spend much time there without one's eyes starting to burn and itch. We then spray painted all the ceilings with an oil based paint and subsequently painted every surface of the dwelling. Unfortunately, the nicotine odor was still quite heavy. We then removed the entire broadloom and under pad. We cleaned the cement floor with a special cement-cleaning product before installation of the new under pad and broadloom. Unfortunately, even after we completed all this, the odor was still there. Cleaning, painting and installing new broadloom throughout had still not solved the air quality issues we were facing.
The furnace and ventilation systems were a major concern. How could we clean and solve the areas we could not physically access? Along came The Boss. I had heard about the hydroxyl technology from a friend. Clearly, no matter how much we cleaned, scrubbed, painted or replaced, there was no way that anyone could reside here unless all the odor and bacteria were totally removed.
The Boss, a non-contained Hydroxyl Generator is easy to use and quiet. We ran the unit with and without the air conditioner on as we wanted the air going through the vents to eliminate the odor and bacteria there as well. We ran The Boss for a period of two to three days on each level of the three level condominium apartment. The Boss was miraculously successful in solving our air quality problem. The condominium apartment not only looked clean but also felt and smelled clean.
It was evident that even though we scrubbed, painted and replaced all the old flooring, without the help of The Boss, we would have never been able to achieve the level of clean air quality we required. The odor and bacteria were all eliminated. I can only imagine the multitude of applications this product could be used for. It is light, easy to move and is quiet to operate. Thanks to The Boss, we were able to complete our restoration.
Thanks for bringing such a great product to market!
We are so please to share with you our testimony regarding the use and rental of the Boss Odorox generator. We have been in the retail dry-cleaning business since 1947, for the last fifteen years we also have been restoring textiles in south eastern Iowa which have been subject to fire, storm, and or flood. We have been users of ozone as a restorative additive to smoke removal and to some extent still do. Our use of the Odorox technology has allowed us to greatly reduce ozone usage in textile remediation.
We advertise odor management as a service both to textiles, which in includes drapery, carpet, and clothing. Our application of the Odorox technology has saved several property owners from having to replace carpet, has unexpectedly improved the health of an acute sensitivity to odors of one of the residents owners. We also rent this technology and have had, along with a subcontractor applied it to death clean up in a semi cab where the driver apparently died of a heart attack, but in warm weather and was not found for six days. In this case, after stripping and remediating the semi cab, the Odorox technology removed the final odors for good.
A partner in the dry cleaning and restoration business in Canada reported the
successful restoration of skunk smell that somehow got in to a men's clothing store.
The new clothes in this store were successfully remediated from the skunk smell without removing them from the premises. This is what prompted us to explore and eventually purchase the Odorox Boss.
In working with one of our ServiceMaster contractors on a fire/smoke environment which was light and no trace of residual sooting, we used the Odorox Boss in 6 days to restore the environment, while the people continued to work, and with out wipe down or other forms of remediation.
We have become confident in the use of Odorox technology, its safety, strength, and application. We would recommend anyone in the restoration business to explore the use of it.
