Take Control of Trash Compactor Smells, Garbage Room Odors, and More



Both garbage compactor rooms and your home trash can smell awful, making you hold your breath whenever you need to put trash in the can or in the room. This confuses a lot of people, because they didn’t put anything in the trash that smelled so bad, and this makes them wonder not only what causes the smell, but also how to eliminate trash odors. Some of the things that you put in your trash, such as paper, plastic packaging, or bits of lint won’t contribute to the awful odor that trash can have. Rather, it is food waste and other biodegradable items that will cause your trash to smell so bad when they are in your can. Because biodegradable items will break down slowly, which releases unpleasant chemicals, and because they will be consumed by microorganisms, you need to know how you can battle these unpleasant smells. Unfortunately, it’s not easy to immediately pinpoint what is causing such a horrid smell in your trash, which makes it tricky to know how to get rid of trash odors.

Odor Thresholds

Because certain compounds have different “odor thresholds” – which is the amount of the compound that has to be present in order for us to smell it, different compounds will be obvious to us at different levels. Some compounds create offensive odors, even when there are small levels of them in the air, while others need to saturate the air before we notice them. Even though compounds will vary in the amount of odor that they produce, there are some that make the biggest contributions to the odors of your trash. Compounds that contain sulfur smell very bad, and this smell is very recognizable. When you have methanethiol anddimethyl sulfide in your trash then the odor will be like rotten cabbage. On the other hand, hydrogen sulfide tends to smell like rotten eggs. Even just a few micrograms of these odors in your home will smell very strong and be unpleasant for you to deal with which is why trash starts to stick so quickly.

Additionally, some nitrogen-containing compounds will create bad smells in your home. Amines, cadaverine, and putrescine are all created when meat decomposes, so any packaging that held meat, steaks, or burgers can all start to smell quickly.This leaves people wondering how to get rid of trash room odors, as they can be so strong. It’s normal for these to smell of rotting meat and to be very offensive.

Unfortunately, there are other compounds that can create horrid odors, including ammonia. While ammonia has a fairly high threshold, it will add to the overall foul odor from your trash. It’s normal to have a lot of this smell when you had fish that you threw away, as it is caused by trimethylamine.

Other compounds can contribute the odors that you smell from your trash, including terpenes, aldehydes, and carboxylic acids. These are all very pungent when concentrated and can add to the odors you smell. Additionally, the smell of vinegar from acetic acid, a vomit smell from butanoic acid, and a rancid smell from propanoic acid are all common.

Many people wonder how to eliminate compactor room odors and trash room odors and how they can combat the smells that come from their trash. Remember that the warmer your trash can or the trash room is, the faster that your organic matter with decompose and begin to smell. By separating food waste from regular household trash you can cut down on the amount of smelly waste that is in your trash can. The other important thing to do is to make sure that you take your trash out on a regular basis.

Benefits of Odorox/Pyure! Client Testimonials, Removes Odors, Kills Germs, Kills Covid-19

Hello

I wanted to thank you personally for the opportunity to trial the Hydroxyl Unit for our Assisted Living Centers.

As you know we are a retirement residence that assists with physically and cognitive impairment of senior citizens.

We found your unit to be of tremendous use especially with the consistent smells associated with bladder problems.

Your machine was very useful for sanitizing our air in all (common) areas including lounges and dining room. Our home was able to keep flu outbreaks at a very non existent level. We put the machine into resident's room- who were showing signs of illness- and with in a couple of days all signs were diminished.

Thank you all for keeping our air healthy and wishing you much success

No More Coughing!! 5/25/2021

Every year, I get a "cough," which ranges from somewhat annoying to almost incapacitating and lasts for three weeks to 4 months!. At its best, the persistent cough is annoying to me and those around me and, at worst, has me moments from passing out from coughing so hard and so long. I keep the Hydroxyly Processors running 24 x 7, and they are quiet and unobtrusive. Over the years, I have visited no less than 13 different doctors, from General Practitioners to Pulmanlogists to Cough Specialists at Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx. Nobody nor anything had alleviated the cough. I have tried multiple in-office and home therapies, a myriad of various drugs, breathing exercises, and more.

Just less than two years ago, after reading about Hydroxyl processors and their health benefits, I obtained two MySpace room Hydroxyly Processors/Air purifiers and began using the Pyure MySpace Hydroxyly processor machines, both in my office and at home. I am incredibly thrilled to say unequivocally that I have not coughed in just shy of two years! A secondary benefit cropped up. I used the OdoroxAir machine to destroy viruses, molds, bacteria but then found out that it also destroys COVID; wow!. The devices are small enough to pack in a suitcase or through in the car, and I have taken the MySpace to Florida (twice), using it in hotel rooms and a week in an Airbnb.

This MyaSpace machine and OdoroxAir have both been godsends, protecting my family and me from COVID and alleviating a close to 10 year-long mystery of chronic coughing. In addition, my wife gets Bronchitis often; she also has a recurring history of Bronchitis; she also has had no coughing, and of course, COVID free even before we had the vaccine.

We are building a new home, and we intend to incorporate an Odorox®/Pyure IDU™ Model into the HVAC system in the house. Worth every cent for not only wellness, but peace of mind: that our home will be free of everything from VOCs to Mold, bacteria, MRSA, COVID, smells, viruses, and more.

I can say that I Highly recommend both OdoroxAir and Pyure Hydroxyl processors.
