RE: Odorox Trash Room Hydroxyl Generator Applications
On behalf of the City 24 Condominium Association ('City 24'), I would like to provide the remarkable results of the Odoroxª hydroxyl technology trash room applications implemented at our development.
City 24 is a 126 unit, 15 story condominium development located on Biscayne Boulevard near downtown Miami. The building maintains a retail trash room and trash chute room. The retail trash room contains 4 large trash dumpsters which is used by residents and retailers and is a receptacle for food and other wastes. Previously these trash rooms were air-conditioned at approximately 65 degrees in order to control offensive odors and City 24 was constantly trying to maintain control over the troublesome, offensive odors.
In mid-May, upon the recommendation of the Odoroxª team, the air-conditioning systems were turned off in the trash rooms. The Odoroxª guys installed hydroxyl generators into each trash room. The problematic air quality control problems were reversed and an immediate improvement was noted. Above and beyond the successful resolution of a very problematic air quality control problem, City 24 realized the added benefit of a significantly reduced house electric bill.
The Odoroxª equipment has proven to be quite effective in City 24 with many different applications. For instance, in addition to the trash room units, City 24 maintains mobile units that are used on a localized basis for odor control problems in the building such as paint fumes. Further, the units serve as a dehumidifier thus further positively affecting our air quality and reducing the a/c operating costs.
While today everyone is facing difficult economic circumstances, the Odoroxª technology has provided significant relief to our present situation and paid for itself in a matter of a couple of months.
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.
