Cincinnati’s Best Choice for Removing Unwanted Lingering Smells

Tired of that lingering smell? Unfortunately, odors in homes and buildings can arise from many sources. Therefore allow us to show you why we’re Cincinnati’s premier odor removal provider.

In fact serious odor problems from smoke, mold, mildew, bacteria, rotten food, and pet waste to name a few, are even more of a challenge to eradicate in humid climates like we have here in Cincinnati. To summarize odor elimination using ozone generators is the most effective way to treat stubborn odor problems. Because Ozone is a molecule made up of three Oxygen molecules instead of two, like the Oxygen you breathe every day. Hence the extra Oxygen molecule makes it unstable, so it interacts with odor molecules and literally disassembles them. So it quickly and permanently destroys the odors, it doesn’t just mask them. As a result after oxidizing the odor molecules, Ozone simply reverts back to Oxygen. 

Because the sense of smell is our primary factor in our sensation of comfort.  In brief rather than being embarrassed any longer call Dry Effect Cincinnati. Because we specialize in those hard to rid odors using specialized deodorizing techniques.
