Supermarket and Grocery Store Odor, Smell, Germ, Bacteria, and Virus Elimination/Removal with Hydroxyl Processor
In a grocery store, there are usually a lot of different odors that you will have to deal with. Some of them are very obvious and include perishable food, while others may be from cleaning solutions. These chemical smells that are caused from the use of harsh cleaning solutions can be very unpleasant to shoppers, especially when they linger around fresh food. When customers smell chemical odors around the food that they want to buy, they may walk away instead of buying, as the sense of smell plays a huge role in how humans choose what to purchase. In addition to these common odors, many grocery store odors may be ones that surprise you, such as odors used in “scent-branding.” These are odors that a grocery store uses to ensure that customers find their products as appealing as possible. All of these odors together in the grocery store can make it difficult for customers to really enjoy themselves while they are shopping. Additionally, these odors can turn customers off of buying certain items, especially if they are smelling chemicals or other strong odors that aren’t traditionally associated with fresh and healthy food.
It is very common for grocery store odors to be caused by neurotoxins and chemicals that are present in harsh cleaning solutions common used to deal with spills and accidents. Unfortunately, these products can be very damaging to the health of customers, especially people who already suffer from immune deficiencies or breathing problems. Additionally, it is very common for stores to have odors around their perishable foods, especially as they reach their sell-by date and begin to smell acrid or stale. While these odors may be normal or common, they are not odors that customers want to experience and they can make customers leave the building without completing all of their shopping.
When a grocery store has a spill or accident that can create an unpleasant odor, it is likely that they will do everything possible to cover up this smell. In all of these cases, employees will rely on cleaners that are chemically-based to provide them with grocery odor removal. The problem with using these cleaners is that the original odor has now just been replaced with a second odor.Rather than continuing to struggle with food store odor removal, companies can rely on green technologies to help rid their stores of unpleasant odors, instead of simply masking them and adding chemical smells to the area. This technology will create hydroxyl molecules from UV energy and moisture in the air, then release them into the area where there are odors that need to be removed.
Since these odors are then attached with a natural substance, Hydroxyls, store owners can handle grocery store odor removal quickly and without worrying about unfortunate smells. The equipment used in green technology is easy to install and doesn’t require attendance or maintenance when operating, making it a great choice for almost any location. A quality supermarket odor eliminator that relies on green technology is, hands down, the absolute best way to combat odors in the grocery store without relying on dangerous and smelly chemicals to do so.
It’s through the combination of UV energy and H2o that these machines can create h + ho (hydroxyls) that are able to attach to floating food or cleaning chemicals odor molecules that are in the air of the building. After they have attached, these hydroxyls are able to remove the odor from the molecules and disperse them into the air, free of any bacteria, toxins, or pollutants, creating air that is clean and healthy to breathe. After ions have been neutralized, the odor will not be able to return and all customers can shop in the store without worrying or wondering about smells that they are experiencing. As far as supermarkets odor issue elimination goes, this is the fastest, healthiest, and easiest way to remove odors from the air in a grocery store without having to worry about adding additional odors to the space via harsh cleaning chemicals .

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.(1Ð3)
We also know from experience that it eliminates biologic and non-biologic odorsÑincluding emesis, blood, smoke and ethanolÑand 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 airÑalong with hydroxyl ionsÑback 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

It has been almost a year since we first met at the International Home Show and you introduced me to the benefits of the Odorox decontamination technology. After almost one year of trialing your product and purchasing equipment, I'm pleased to provide you with an update on our success year to date.
INDOOR POOL RESTORATION PROJECT
During the retiling of our indoor pool last spring we smelled a very nasty odour off-gassing during the excavation process and it was negatively affecting some of the common areas which our tenants use for private parties and other events. After contacting your company, you were able to make a site visit and bring us 3 machines to trial to help mitigate the odour. We placed an Oasis in the common room and used two Boss units in the adjacent hallways and elevator corridor and were able to successfully eliminate the odours in only a few hours. It was amazing and we were able to keep the Oasis in the common room during the restoration project ensuring that our clients had no ill effects from the smells during the entire construction project.
Subsequent to completing the pool project, we were able to successfully remediate odours such as smoke and other unwanted smells by placing your equipment right into the condo units as problems arose. The nice aspect of the technology is that it is safe to place while the unit is occupied yet removes odours such as smoke not only from the air, but from the carpets and walls. This saves us money without having to call in outside contractors to remediate our properties.
Obviously one of our concerns with respect to garbage rooms is both, odour and safety and like any Other property manager, there have been times when unwanted smells have seeped up through the garbage chutes negatively affecting tenants on the first few floors. We placed one of your Boss units into our main garbage area and were amazed that after one or two days that the odours were completely eliminated. The machine has now been operating for 8 months and we have had to do nothing but leave it on site running. There are virtually no electrical costs since the equipment operates on less than 2 amps. Since start-up we have eliminated the need to purchase chemicals and other odour remediation products. The added feature that your equipment also eliminates surface bacteria and air-borne viruses without touching them helps us ensure that no unwanted pathogens find their way from the garbage room to our tenants via the garbage chutes.
I was very skeptical when I first heard about your product line at the Toronto show. Truthfully it is impossible to believe that you can simply plug in a machine and not only get the smells out of the air, but as well walls and ceilings or anything else without touching it. You proved me wrong!
This condominium is a very high end building with some owners paying several million dollars for their suites. After using chemicals and other masking agents to try and protect the expected smells and odours common when dealing with garbage, it is great to finally own a product that is maintenance free, GREEN, and that can be used for many different applications.
