Whether a nuisance odor or an odor that could lead to adverse health effects, no one wants to work in or live in a stinky, smelly office or home. Let IDS investigate the source and develop a plan to eliminate the odor. Biofilm are created from extracellular polymeric substances excreted by bacteria. These sticky polymers hold the biofilm together and cement it to the surface area. The Biofilm trap nutrients and protect the underlying bacteria from biocides including bleach. These inert coatings allow for the accmulation of complex, metabolically cooperative bacterial communities that often produce highly pungent odors and in some cases slime. Testing conducted by Sandia National Laboratories indicates that the formulation of Decon7 is "extremely effective" for the complete breakdown and decontamination of biofilms and bacteria on all test surfaces.
