Green Mold & Odor Removal Technology

Photo Catalytic Oxidation SystemBioSweep utilizes specially manufactured photo-catalytic oxidation systems, the most powerful of its kind in restoration and decontamination applications, to eradicate airborne and surface organic molecules and microorganisms including pathogens and bacteria.

To eliminate odors and mold, our systems use a low-temperature, yet high-intensity residue-free process called advanced photocatalytic oxidation (Phocatox) to produce ultra-high levels of vapor-phase hydrogen peroxide, purified ozone and hydrogen radicals. These three active ingredients are unsurpassed for their penetrating oxidative power to remove virtually any embedded or persistent odor in a confined space and restore healthy indoor air quality.

Our technology safely eliminates the need for deodorization or chemical fogging and is environmentally friendly. Compared to other methods and technologies used by competitors, BioSweep offers superior performance and results.

Major benefits include:

  • 100% effectiveness / 100% customer satisfaction guarantee
  • Exceeds all indoor air quality remediation standards
  • Proven technology
  • Cost Effective
  • Residue-Free
  • Environmentally friendly
We utilize the BIOSWEEP 900 Series for odor removal, air and surface decontamination. The BIOSWEEP deploys a proven technology called photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) to produce simultaneous, interrelated forms of oxidation to eradicate airborne organic contaminants. These vapor compounds are unsurpassed in field applications for their penetrating oxidative power to remove virtually any embedded or persistent odor.

No, the BIOSWEEP Process does not use any chemicals. Only uses the existing humidity in the treatment area.

No, the BIOSWEEP Process is compatible with most materials. It will not bleach or harm carpet, upholstery or fabrics when properly operated. Please refer to the Cole-Parmer Chemical Compatibility Chart for specific materials.

A treatment area can be as small as a car or as large as a 10,000 sq. ft. The time it takes to treat an area depends on how many units are used. The quantity of BIOSWEEP’s needed is dependent upon several factors such as temperature, humidity, contaminant source and severity, floor plan, and cubic space.

The BIOSWEEP Process can only be safely operated in vacant or unoccupied spaces. The BIOSWEEP Process should never be operated when humans or pets are present. Operators must wear NIOSH approved half or full-face piece respirators with NIOSH approved P100/Organic Vapor/Acid Gas cartridges during the BIOSWEEP Process.

The BIOSWEEP Process is primarily used for odor removal and/or airborne contaminant destruction. Virtually any odor or airborne contaminant can be completely eradicated with the BIOSWEEP Process.

The BIOSWEEP Process can treat most indoor environments within 3-12 hrs. dependent upon several factors including indoor environment conditions, odor or contaminant, floor plan and cubic air space. Most vehicles can be easily treated in 1 hour. The BIOSWEEP Process can reduce deodorization time as much as ninety-percent (90%).

No, BIOSWEEP equipment is not considered ozone generators. The treatment unit does not use coronal discharge ozone generation, which is unreliable and produces harmful and corrosive nitrogen oxides. The unit produces purified oxygen and hydrogen peroxide within the treatment chamber. These oxyradicals are exported to attack contaminants on exposed surfaces. The equipment is at least 10x more powerful than most commercial ozone generators.

The BIOSWEEP Process can reduce deodorization time as much as ninety percent (90%) as compared to simple ozone generators.

One Treatment will usually remove all odors caused by organic materials. In the unlikely event that odors do linger we will perform a second treatment at no extra charge. Our 100% guarantee assures our customers the BIOSWEEP Process will be successful.

Yes, The BIOSWEEP Process comes with a 14-day guarantee. Since the odor that caused the problem is organic we guarantee the original odor will be removed but other odors could be introduced after our treatment. We cannot guarantee odor removal if the customer continues to participate in activities that cause the odor.

Yes, it will remove Formaldehyde for the air. Since Formaldehyde is a volatile organic compound the BIOSWEEP Process is very effective at eradicating Formaldehyde.

Yes, the BIOSWEEP treatment is the only process that removes cooking odors from a home or restaurant. The curry oil is difficult to remove but with pre-treatment and experienced technicians we have excellent results.

Usually when an odor returns there are reasons why. Carpet padding, air filters, and other porous materials are the primary factor for recurring odors. Our technicians are highly trained to identify these possible odor traps so permanent odor removal can be achieved. If we are unable to remove the odor we offer a 100% guarantee.

The BIOSWEEP Process produces both purified trivalent oxygen and hydrogen peroxide. The properties that make ozone and hydrogen peroxide powerful cleaners and disinfectants also make them dangerous to living tissues. The same chemical properties that allow high concentrations of these oxyradicals to react with organic material outside the body give them the ability to react with similar organic material that makes up the body and potentially cause temporary harmful health consequences. When these oxyradicals come in contact with living tissues, like our lungs, they attack and damage cells lining the airways, causing swelling and inflammation, and resulting in difficult breathing.

Yes, any organic smell can be treated with the BIOSWEEP Process. Dead animals or human waste smells can be treated. The original cause of the odor must be removed.

Our main office is located in Summerville, South Carolina. We currently service the entire South Carolina coast from Myrtle Beach, SC to Savannah, GA. Areas outside of the Tri-County area (more than 50 driving miles from the Summerville, SC home office as calculated by map quest) will require a trip charge.

No, the unit is sold only to approved Licensees who are trained and certified in the use of this very specialized equipment.

Yes and No. The treatment process produces a pleasant “clean scent” odor that gradually fades away within 24 hours.

Yes. We do not use any harsh chemicals and the BIOSWEEP Process leaves no chemical by-products. Unlike dangerous ozone generators that leave nitrogen oxide as a by-product of the treatment. Environmentally safe odor removal is now available.

Most treatment areas can be safely re-entered within 45 minutes to 1 hour.

At BIOSWEEP Southeast, LLC we have a very sophisticated vapor monitoring equipment. This equipment registers, in fractions of parts per million, the treatment vapor to insure the area is safe for humans and pets. Most treatment areas can be safely re-entered within 45 minutes to an hour after treatment.

Yes, the BIOSWEEP Process is highly effective and can be easily deployed inside any vehicle. We can remove any odors like cigarette smoke, mildew smell, pet odor, or even fish odor. And remember our 100% guarantee. If it still smells after we have treated the vehicle, you don’t pay a dime!

Yes, the BIOSWEEP Process will eradicate airborne mold spores. Dead or inactive mold spores are captured in the units’ optional HEPA filter.

Yes, The BIOSWEEP Process will eradicate most animal odors including cat urine and skunk odor. Pre-treatment of the affected areas to remove the source of the odors may be required.

Yes, The BIOSWEEP Process is extremely effective at eradication of bacteria and virus. The unit has currently gone under extensive testing on Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and other resistant stains such as C-DIFF and has proved to completely eradicate and sanitize any pathogens. If you have any questions please feel free to ask us for the lab results.

Yes, The BIOSWEEP process is perfect for content restoration. If your clothes or cloth furniture have lingering odors we can remove them usually in one treatment. Smoke odor removal is our specialty.

Yes, The BIOSWEEP process is very effective at removing toxic fumes associated with gasoline and diesel fuel spills. The organic compounds in fuel oils are broken down to non-volatile compounds during the process. Any porous materials (i.e. concrete) will have to be treated with an enzyme to expedite the BIOSWEEP process breakdown.
