Everyone involved in sports, including spectators, athletes, officiants, trainers, and medical personnel all need to make sure that they are healthy and practice good hygiene habits for the health and benefits of everyone involved. This can be very difficult, leading schools and fitness facilities to wonder how to sanitize a fitness facility. Using our is the best way to make sure that your locker rooms, gym, and changing rooms are all free of viruses, bacteria, germs, and bad odors. Static and airborne contaminants don’t just make these rooms smell bad, they can also make them very dangerous to be in, as it is easy to pick up an infection in these locations. Many athletes get ill during their sports careers, and while they wonder how to decontaminate your workout clothes, the main problem is bacteria that is present in the locker room and on workout equipment, which can make most anyone ill. Using Hydroxyl Generators is the best way to make these shared spaces smell the best that they can and ensure that they are clean and safe for people to be in.
Most people who go to the gym do so to be healthier and to better themselves, and don’t think about all of the germs that are present on free weights, yoga mats, or the handrails on the treadmills. While working out is good for you, exposure to all of the germs in the gym is not ideal.Reducing your exposure to germs is the best way to make sure that you stay healthy. Check with your gym about how often they clean equipment and make sure that you change out of your sweaty workout clothes as quickly as possible bacteria and germs will breed in the hot and moist fabric. While showering is preferable, washing your hands will keep you from spreading germs until you are able to shower.
Many people think that sweat smells, but it’s actually bacteria breeding and feeding on your sweat that releases this odor. Bacteria loves feeding on sweat that your body excretes, which allows them to break down carbohydrates, fatty acids , and proteins that are present in your sweat, causing a body odor as they metabolize what they eat. While you sweat to stay cool when working out, you are creating the perfect breeding ground on your body for bacteria. Knowing this, you can see how important it is to get clean right away after working out. The smell in your gym clothes after you exercise is caused by ammonia secreted by the body. Ammonia is excreted by the body due to nutritional imbalances, forcing the body to get fuel by feeding on protein instead of fats and carbohydrates. This causes the body to break down some amino acids, resulting in ammonia as one of the by-products. This is then excreted through the skin when there is too much present in the body. It is very difficult to get rid of this smell once it has become lodged in your clothing, and while washing with traditional detergents will mask the smell, the odor will not be completely removed.
In fact, it will often smell worse as time goes on and the ammonia builds up in your clothing. Using Odorox Hydroxyl Generators is the best way to remove odors and clean athletes’ gear and workout areas. These generators are the answer to the question “how to get rid of germs in your gym,” and not only remove odors, but also the bacteria, germs, and viruses that breed in these areas. Hydroxyls are being used in the hockey world to clean equipment and remove odors. Hockey players are notorious for creating odor due to their sweat, the heavy equipment they wear, and the ammonia that their bodies produce. Many NFL and NHL teams are using Hydroxyl generators to deodorize and disinfect all of their equipment and gear. This means that not only do their players smell much better, but they are at a lower risk for getting sick since these generators are able to kill many different germs and bacteria naturally. In fact, some athletes are buying smaller units that they can use in their own homes for the same wonderful benefits.

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.

Whilst writing, there has been a development since our telephone conversation that I would like to
share with you.
Sometime ago, I am assuming last week with all this heavy rain, my basement Cold Room/Storm Shelter had flooded out, it was full of contents and they had been sitting in water for some time. That coupled with the lack of air flow and humidity, caused everything to go moldy and there was visible mold on the floor, walls and ceilings.
We emptied this room of its contents and disposed of what was damaged beyond repair. We conducted
a cleanup and installed drying equipment and fans and once dried the mildew smell in this room was
So I took the initiative to use the loaner machine which Hydroxyl Environmental had provided our group. As previously mentioned I set the Boss Generator machine at high and added a couple of air fans to move the hydroxyls around the room. Within 2 days the mildew odor had completely been removed.
I personally am now totally sold on this product and its effectiveness in remediation and odor control.
I have copied our technical staff in on this email advising that my family and I were present throughout the use of this machine with no ill effects.
So to summarize, many thanks for the use of this machine, I am happy to share its success with our
many branches across Canada and help to recommend your product. There is no doubt it looks like
Hydroxyl generators and their effectiveness are the way forward.
Once again many thanks.
