Even when the goal is to restore and preserve the original essence of a home, you don’t want to hold on to the original odors. The smells have to go, and BAC-A-ZAP makes it happen.
At A Glance
Use BAC-A-ZAP anywhere organic odors exist:
- Wall voids
- Pet sleep areas
A Closer Look
Eliminates odor from
- Mold & mildew
- Athletic smells
- Stinky drains
- Pet odors
- Dead animals
- Food odors
- Even skunk
Contact your pest control company and ask them to apply BAC-A-ZAP to the affected areas. Or you can purchase the product from them and apply it yourself.
Stops odors in wall voids
Sometimes you can smell something in the home, but can’t see it. Sometimes it’s a small rodent in the walls and other times it’s an animal in the crawl space. Either way, BAC-A-ZAP offers you a simple and effective solution.
Best drain treatment product
Pest companies can foam this product into the drains. Drains are notorious for trapping organic matter like food and bacteria and moisture. Not only does BAC-A-ZAP remove the organic matter in drains, but in doing so, it also eliminates the smells.
For use in debris fields
Many times there is considerable debris that is removed from homes, yards and properties. BAC-A-ZAP can be sprayed in these areas to minimize odor both before and after the debris is removed.
Tackling a Hurricane
It was bad enough that Hurricane Katrina blew in and destroyed people’s homes and livelihoods when it struck southern Louisiana and Mississippi in September of 2005. Adding insult to that injury was the stench left behind by the rotting food products and animal carcasses that took weeks to clean out of city streets and other public areas.
“It was smelly. It was nasty. It was truly like working in the city dump,” recalled Mike Craft, the pest control division manager for Gulfport, Miss.-based Redd Pest Solutions. His company had the monumental task of dealing with the odor and flies that accompanied the daily bulldozing of garbage, excess sewage and remnants of homes and businesses as workers and residents tried to recover from the storm. His employees were also charged with the task of cleaning up the odor from the food products – such as chicken and pork bellies – that were washed out of the port’s freezers, where they were waiting to be shipped.
As they have for years, the pest management professionals (PMPs) at Redd Pest Solutions relied on BAC-A-ZAP to tackle the odors. Manufactured by Nisus Corporation, BAC-A-ZAP is a unique blend of natural organisms, including nonpathogenic bacteria and enzymes that work to encapsulate and neutralize any organic odor. The enzyme-producing bacteria in BAC-A-ZAP literally consume and eliminate odors.
The product can be sprayed into the air or onto hard surfaces, or foamed into tight spaces. Its molecules attach themselves to the offending odor molecules and encapsulate them for instant odor elimination, leaving behind a clean, fresh scent. Then the bacteria and enzymes begin consuming the source of the odor for complete elimination.
In Gulfport, six PMPs used truck-mounted power sprayers to apply BAC-A-ZAP throughout the city streets, as well as a three-mile by one-quarter-mile section around the port where the storm pushed most of the warehouses’ food products, Craft said. The work continued for several months as bulldozers continuously turned over new ground that needed to be sprayed and the Army Corps of Engineers supervised removal of the animal carcasses and food products.
“We were spraying some streets daily or every other day,” Craft said.
The Science Behind BAC-A-ZAP
BAC-A-ZAP uses non-pathogenic bacterium that work on an organic chemical level. These pseudomonad-friendly bacteria are ‘super organic eaters’. They are so efficient that they out-compete other bacteria that are trying to turn the organic materials into smelly compounds. The bacteria produce enzymes to biologically break down organic matter as well as attach to odor molecules in the air as a second layer of odor elimination.
