Removing Odors, Germs, and Bacteria in Restaurants, Food Prep Areas, Dining Rooms, and Walk-in Coolers
Hydroxyl Technology, Keeps Restaurant Clean, Sanitary. Odorox Hydroxyl Processors Means That Every Restaurant Will Be Safe, Clean Bacteria/Odor Free
Obvious problems with cleanliness are a red flag that will tell you not to eat at a certain restaurant, but sometimes you can’t see how dirty a location is. While most people won’t eat when there is dried food on the table, dirty silverware, or filthy carpets, there are often areas of concern that people simply do not notice. Most people assume that restaurant owners and staff are very concerned with how to reduce bacteria in restaurants, but the truth of the matter is that most restaurants simply aren’t cleaned enough to reduce harmful bacteria or germs that may linger on the chairs, the salt and pepper shakers, or in the kitchen itself. While it’s important for restaurants to keep their kitchens and dining areas as clean as possible, many simply do not have the money needed to hire additional cleaning staff. Rather than worrying about how to employ more people, restaurants have a much easier way to sanitize food prep areas for food safety and remove odors from the kitchen and restaurant.
Thanks to Hydroxyl technology, keeping a restaurant clean and sanitary has never been easier, which means that every restaurant can be a safe and clean place to eat.
Odorox Hydroxyl Generators are the best tool in the fight when you wonder how to sanitize food prep areas.That’s because these machines can be placed anywhere in the kitchen and throughout the restaurant itself without being in the way and will allow continuous cleaning to occur
even during the lunch rush. Bathrooms and kitchens need these generators to remain sanitary, but they are also great throughout the whole restaurant and will improve air quality and remove any lingering odors. Hydroxyls are more than a millions times more powerful than ozone, bleach, and other agents commonly used for sanitizing a restaurant.
They create constant streams of Hydroxyl radicals that destroy not only odors, but also germs, bacteria, and viruses, creating a clean and safe place to cook and to eat. When the generator is turned off, the radicals will quickly dissipate. In fact, these generators have been shown to kill the following:
CRE – 89.8%-99.99% kill rate within 12 hours
Listeria - 94.7%-98.6% kill rate within 48 hours.
Porcine Reproductive Respiratory Syndrome (PRRSV) virus - 97.9% kill rate within 6 hours
Influenza A virus – 99.99% - 99.99% kill rate within 6 hours
Methicillin Resistant Staph. Aureus (MRSA) – 65.1% - 94.4% kill rate within 4 hours
Norovirus – 93.2% - 98.6% kill rate within 6 hours
C. difficile – 99.8% - 98.6% kill rate within 48 hours
Aspergillus niger – 99.9% - 97% kill rate within 48 hours
Pseudomonas aeruginosa – 99.99% - 99.9% kill rate within 4 hours
Staph. Aureus – 99.99% - 99.9% kill rate within 12 hours
There have been recent studies showing similar kill rates on raw and sprouted barley pathogens. Odorox sanitizing agents are the answer to “how to remove odors from restaurants,” as they do not damage the plant materials. Additionally, since the Hydroxyl radicals don’t interact with carbon dioxide, they will not interfere with plant respiration. However, they do neutralize ethylene and other respiration by-products, making them helpful in long term storage situations as they will prevent plants from wilting or becoming otherwise inedible or undesirable.
There are many restaurants and markets in New York City that rely on Odorox technology to help remove odors and keep areas clean and sanitized. When used with traditional cleaning methods, this technology is a great way to reduce odors and limit the spread of disease and germs. Cheese departments can use the Slimline models, which will help to contain or reduce pungent aromas from certain cheese, in turn eliminating the concern of a pest infestation.Larger Boss models are ideal in trash rooms to prevent odors from escaping.
Mobile Odorox units are perfect for placing in storage during the day when the restaurant is open and then running them at night. This eliminates germs that were missed during daily cleaning and ensures that all surfaces are clean. Some of the dirtiest surfaces in restaurants are salt and pepper shakers, bench seats, chairs, and condiment bottles, and Odorox Hydroxyl Generators can easily sanitize these surfaces. While physical cleaning by employees is still important, using generators is a great way to ensure that restaurants are cleaner, more sanitary, and much more inviting for guests to enjoy their dining experience.

Benefits of Odorox Technology, Testimonials from our Customers
The following were observations regarding The Boss Generator;
1. We received the equipment on October 6 and provided you with a smoking room to remediate.
2. The processor (the MDU Unit) was left operational over night subsequent to cigarette smoke being added to the environment.
3. The following morning the room had been remediated providing it with a fresher smell.
4. Subsequently our cleaning staff provided you with an additional room on our smoking level that had been rented the prior evening. The room had been cleaned but it still had a residual smell of cigarette smoke. Our staff placed a unit (The Boss) in the space then providing the room with a fresher smell.
5. The equipment was returned on October 14th.
Thank you again for the opportunity to test your product on our smoking level.

FEATURED IN HEALTH AND SAFETY
We've talked about cooties before, Life-Saver. Nothing is scarier than some of the stuff you can't even see.
Fortunately, our bodies came equipped with an incredible array of weapons to protect us from sick people's diseases.
I can't find any studies that say so, but I don't think EMS providers get sick as often as most other people. If that's true, I suspect it's because we're exposed to so much disease on a regular basis that we're somewhat immune to it. I've always been impressed by that (and have always been grateful for it.) But I still think we'd be a lot safer if somebody could devise a surefire way to sanitize an ambulance without taking it apart.
In the March 2005 installment of this column, I discussed numerous ways EMS providers could minimize their exposure to disease. I suggested everything from leaving their boots at work to routinely cleaning door handles, stretchers, ceiling hardware and radio mics with contact cleaner. I've also talked about such practices as hand-washing, ditching exam gloves before driving, removing the floor hardware to address substances that accumulate there and not eating in ambulances.
I do brag some about my agency's crews. I hope you understand I love 'em to death. If you ever come and ride with us, you'll see why in about a second. Not only are they fine caregivers, but they also have hearts the size of toasters. If we were to lose just one of them, all of EMS would be damaged. Their families expect us to keep them safe, and we try hard to do that.
One of our first responders is an EMT named Chris Forbes. Chris is a lieutenant with our fire department here in Brighton, Colo., and he's a part-time distributor of gizmos called hydroxyl generators. Hydroxyl ions are unstable, negatively charged molecules that oxidize single-celled organisms, and thereby, destroy them. Chris showed us a device the size of a briefcase that's designed to produce and circulate hydroxyls throughout a closed environment about the size of a small house (2,000 square feet). We bought it (for about $2,800). When we take an ambulance out of service for maintenance, and before we give it back to a crew, we plug the device into the unit's 110VAC shoreline circuit and run it in the patient compartment for 24 hours with all the doors and windows closed.
We're pretty small-time, and we serve a poor district, so we don't have a lot of money for science. We've found no reference to anybody using hydroxyl generators in ambulances. But the independent lab reports we've read say that in structures, this device destroys more than 99.9% of airborne, surface and contained anthrax, Clostridium difficile, Escherichia coli, influenza A, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Listeria monocytogenes, MRSA, Staph aureus, molds and their spores, and tuberculosis bacilli on stainless steel and cotton fabric surfaces during a single 12-hour exposure.(1?3)
We also know from experience that it eliminates biologic and non-biologic odors?including emesis, blood, smoke and ethanol?and produces no odors of its own.
They're commonly installed in the heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems of public buildings, especially in humid areas, and they're routinely used to purify structures after flooding. Fire departments use them to sanitize turnout gear.
How do these things work? Ours contains a fan that draws .dirty. air through a multiple-wavelength ultraviolet chamber, then exhausts it as clean air?along with hydroxyl ions?back into the environment. Hydroxyls occur naturally in sunlight. Although they're deadly to one-celled organisms, they're harmless to people and animals. Likewise, tests prove they break down airborne aldehydes, ozone, carbon monoxide and volatile organic compounds.(4)
According to Chris, you can actually get these things in much smaller sizes, designed for permanent mounting in an ambulance, for about $500. That would spread the cost of one over the span of a lease, or the life of a vehicle. JEMS - Journal of Emergency Medical Services
