Metazene – South Florida’s Most Powerful Odor Neutralizer

In the warmer, tropical climate of southern Florida where odors are magnified and more persistent due to the extreme surrounding heat, there is a pressing need for a powerhouse odor control agent that can combat them.

That odor neutralizer is called Metazene, a near odorless concentrate that attacks foul vaporous odors at the molecular level, eradicating them forever — and one that is incorporated into all of our air freshener products!

But why are odors worse when it’s warm? How does Metazene actually work? And why is it so effective in the hot, humid summers and mild tropical winters of South Florida?

Continue on to learn more! Or, if you own or operate a business anywhere throughout South Florida that is suffering from any intolerable stench such as those that emanate from smoking, pets, animals, trash, garbage rooms, musty old buildings, restrooms, humid lobbies, elevator shafts and stairwells, contact us today for a trial of our odor control and air freshener services — (561) 588-2114.

A Few Relevant Studies About Heat And Malodors

Research supports the fact that the high heat and humidity levels of tropical regions everywhere can be extremely obnoxious for businesses and their clientele. It can cause loss of patronage, induce bad reviews and affect employee productivity.

For southern Florida, the warm core tropical climate system generates more rain, humidity and mildew than is found in the Northern and central regions of the state, which translates into a greater need for air-freshening and deodorizing services because quite simply, the hotter and wetter it gets, the more bacteria thrive, creating a perfect storm so to speak for the cultivation of malodors of all types.

According to Georgetown University biologist, Colin J. Carlson, an informative study published recently in the journal, PLOS, indicated that the amount of energy available for odor-causing molecules increases in tandem with outdoor temperatures.

Extra energy is required for malodorous molecules, whether liquid or solid, to settle into the gas phase. 

Excessive heat is the perfect vehicle for this transition, which results in a drastic increase in odor-causing molecule production.

This is why odors are a particularly challenging problem in warmer climates.

How Does Metazene Actually Control Odors?

Metazene is a neutralizing additive like no other on the face of the earth. While there are many products on the modern marketplace that serve to counteract malodors, they are all diverse and many do not work well at all. 

This is because the majority of odor neutralizers are surface active and often rely on enzymes or antimicrobials to eliminate foul odors, which in turn stems from the belief that enzymes produce a microbial action as well.

While this is true to a certain extent, microbial agents are completely ineffectual when it comes to vaporous odors (in the air).

The mystery behind our dual action “wonder neutralizer” lies within the realms of industrial science and modern chemistry. It is a simple matter of weight and chemical reaction. 

Metazene bonds with malodorous molecules, which changes their electron patterns, canceling their properties through hydrogen bonding, atom formation (adsorption) and encapsulation.

A Brief History Of Metazene And Odor Control

Bad smells have been around ever since the dawn of time. 

In the ancient world, both the Egyptians and the Romans were obsessed with masking their personal body odors. 

The Egyptians invented perfumed baths, and the Romans not only adopted that practice, they pushed that perfumed envelope even further by dousing their clothes, horses and even their pets with fragrance. 

Conversely, the Middle Ages was a very stinky historical period. The church banned being naked even in the bath.

Malodors were an unpleasant but acceptable aspect of life until about two centuries ago, when garbage collection, the development of modern sewage systems and other waste control standards were established.

Metazene entered the world in the late 1940s, but its volatile reactivity thwarted early operations, and it took many years to perfect a product that was both stable and pure. 

The initial substance contained a 40% solution of the active ingredients, but a few years later in the mid 1950s, a new form of distillation rendered the development of a full-bodied 80% concentrate. 

Further research unveiled a previously unknown material, which improved Metazene as a 99% concentrate. 

This was a purer form, which was both uniform in properties and colorless. This is by far the purest form to date of this dynamic and highly-effective odor neutralizer.

Consequently, Metazene was used in the very first aerosol deodorizing air freshener, produced by Gulf Oil Products in Pittsburgh, and has since become the standard of today’s aerosol odor control products.

Later, it was also adapted for use within certain industrial and municipal industries, including portable toilets, waste water treatments, landfill treatments and other areas.

Thanks to Metazene, air care has come a long way in ensuring clean, fresh-smelling and odor-free commercial environments in warmer, tropical climates where odors are bolstered by the ambient heat and can be all consuming and more tenacious.
