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 .

Benefits of Odorox Technology, Testimonials from our Customers

Major Canadian Insurance Adjuster takes notice of Hydroxyl Benefits

Recently I've had the chance to see the hydroxyl machines in action in two claims that we worked on together and I have to tell you how impressed I am that these machines actually do what they claim.

First there was the liability claim at the 15,000 square foot office building in Cambridge that was under construction. Our insured was doing some work in the building and accidentally started a small fire. Smoke went throughout the building and since the drywall was all new it had not been sealed or painted yet. Although there was very little soot deposit, odour was the bigger problem. We were faced with the real possibility of having to replace the drywall at a cost well over $150,000. Even to Kilz paint it would have been in excessive of $80,000. There was also an exposure related to income loss if there were delays in the completion of the building.

The hydroxyl machines that you recommended and used on this claim did an amazing job of removing the entire smoke odour to everyone's satisfaction and in a mere seven days and at a cost of under $30,000! The construction workers were even able to continue to work while the machines were running.

The second claim involved a diner inside a local bus terminal. There was a small electrical fire in the storage room. The sprinklers put the fire out but smoke went throughout the storage and kitchen areas. Again odour was the bigger problem once the water clean-up was done. PDS put in a hydroxyl machine for two days to eliminate the smoke odour. A few weeks later I met with our insured who commented that not only did the smoke odour disappear but so had the odour of the grease. He was very pleased with our claims service and PDS.

I certainly will be asking other contractors to use this equipment in other claims involving odours. I'm confident that it works really well and the potential for saving money is huge.

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
