Ozone effectively removes decayed meat odor
Ask yourself these questions:
- Did liquid, blood, or water leak onto the flooring (carpet, laminate or wood floor)?
- Did the refrigerator / freezer loose electricity and now has liquid from the thawing meat on the shelf or leaked internally into the insulation?
Follow these steps to remove decayed meat smell:
- If the liquid, blood or water leaked on to the carpet, the carpet needs to be pulled up and cleaned underneath.
- Before wood floor treatment and carpet pad replacement, the carpeting needs to be shampooed and extracted with deodorizer on both sides to prevent any liquid blood or water from transfering into the new pad and treated wood flooring / underlayment.
- Before replacing the pad, the wood floor or underlayment needs to be sanded and sealed with a polyurethane coating to seal in any odor that might be trapped in any wood fibers.
- If there is a pad under the carpet, it should be replaced, where it has soaked and stained. Repeat the shampooing process until satisfaction is reached. If satisfaction is not reached within five times, you might have to consider a different cleaning agent or replacement of the carpet.
- If the liquid blood or odor filled water is confined to the fridge / freezer, the fridge / freezer needs to be moved on to a hard surface, preferably protected underneath with plastic or tarp, to prevent any other soaking into the flooring surface. Once the liquid or dried liquid blood has been removed, an ozone generator should be used.
