That can be a tough job because professionals just want to throw away anything wet after a flood.

You’re tired of those professionals coming in your house, giving you an astronomical price to get the mold out of your house and make it livable again.  They want you to throw out all you items – the wet ones and the ones in the room near the ones with mold.  Chairs, nick knacks, pictures and frames, even books in the room that didn’t get wet.  Some of those items are precious.  Gifts from your dad or your uncle  or mom that you’ve cherished for years.  Your mom and dad are gone and those items can’t be replaced.  And in one short remediation, everything must go in the trash.  They say “there’s no way to remove mold smells from household items so they all must go in the trash. The mold will never go away, the musty smell will stay and you’ll get sick from having mold on your precious nick- knacks.”

But with a new product, you could keep most all of your personal items, even books, and still breathe easy in your previously flooded home.  And totally remove mold smells from household items.

Such As the
  • Nick Knacks
  • Glass and china
  • Furniture
  • Picture frames
  • Even books which we’ll talk about in another post.

Will remove mold smells from household items

Mold remediation in the expensive world does not include recovering any personal items. Personal items normally are thrown away, even if they were not directly involved in the flood.   But  because the mold spores landed on them, bloomed into fungus and still cause breathing problems and smells, and the professionals think there is no easy way to remove the spores, the household items get thrown out.  And if you don’t get rid of the spores on the personal items, you’ll never get rid of the musty odors.  Because until now there has been no way to remove mold smells from household items.
The rule always appeared to be: paint it or pitch it. Books, papers, curtains, furniture, nick knacks all have to go in order for the mold testing process (run after the cleanup) to succeed.  So you can’t remove mold smells from household items.
There is a solution and it costs a lot less than thousands of dollars, even less than hundreds of dollars.
You will have to throw out any cardboardboxes.  If there are personal items in the boxes you want to save and can be saved, place them in an air tight plastic storage container .  No need to throw your personal items out.  Because now you can remove mold smells from household items.
If your keepsakes do have mold spores or are yucky to touch, clean them first with MOMS by OdorXit.  Mold Odor Mildew Smoke. Once the MOMS packet is placed in water, chlorine dioxide gas is created and encapsulated in the water.  Then just spray or wipe it on your precious belongings and remove mold smell from household items with just one cleaning.
Here’s how:
  • Wear rubber gloves
  • Use a cloth rag
  • Get the rag damp and wipe off your items, one by one. 
  • Then place them in the plastic box, put on the lid to keep other spores out and put them someplace safe.
It’s that simple!
No residue is left behind so there is nothing else to wipe off.  It’s safe to breathe, easy on your hands, non toxic and leaves no carbon footprint.

Here’s how to prepare the MOMS So You Too Can Remove Mold Smells from Household Items and NOT Throw them out.

  • Get a clean 5 gallon bucket
  • Fill with 2-4 gallons of cold water
  • Place a heavy item (screw, fork, etc.) through the hole in the end of the white packet.  This will ensure the packet lays on the bottom of the bucket and the gas the MOMS produces becomes encapsulated in the water.
  • Wait approximately one hour as the water turns slightly yellow.
  • Use a cloth rag to wipe off your items, one by one and place into the air tight plastic storage container .
Once your house is remediated, your items will be ready to place back on your book shelves and throughout the house with all the spores oxidized / gone – no odor, no spores, you will remove mold smells from household items and never have to throw them out.  All that will be left is easy breathing.
And if you have paper items that shouldn’t be wiped down with a water cleaner, there’s AQM by OdorXit.  Air Quality Manager.  Instead of the gas staying in the water, this product releases the gas into the air to oxidize the mold spores, fungus and the mildew smell – killing the odor and never coming back, allowing you to remove mold smells from household items like books and important paper – completely!

The recent storms that have ravaged multiple parts of the US have caused unprecedented damage. If you or your loved ones were affected by any of these storms, our thoughts and best wishes go out to you. Because these storms were so large in scale, people have experienced everything from moderate to complete damage.


Since getting rid of bad odors is our area of expertise, we want to help anyone who lost power for an extended period of time during one of these storms but didn't face complete damage to their home and belongings. Even if you're dealing with a refrigerator that smells incredibly bad due to it being fully defrosted and having items like frozen food decompose for days or even weeks, we want to go over how you can fully restore your appliance to its former condition.


5 Steps to Saving Your Refrigerator After Losing Electricity


The first step is to remove all of the spoiled food. This can be a truly nasty and smelly experience, which is why you'll want to wear a protective mask and gloves as you do it. Once your refrigerator is clean, take it outside and spray it out with a garden hose. If you have a truck or access to one, consider taking your appliance to a car wash and use the high-powered equipment to spray it out.


The next step is to spray one ounce of OdorXit Concentrate mixed with 30 ounces of water everywhere the refrigerator smells. That means spraying the insulation behind the doors,

under and around the door gaskets, the inside, behind the drawers and every little opening where the defrosted food might have dripped. Once the OdorXit Concentrate solution comes in contact with the rotten food smells, it will remove them from your refrigerator completely and safely.


The second to last step is to let the refrigerator dry outside then bring it back in the house. Don't panic if it still smells a little. It just means there is still at least one spot that hasn't been treated yet. You'll be able to knock it out by continuing to sniff and spraying wherever you detect even a slight odor.


The final step is to remember to be a good neighbor! Spray a few shots of the OdorXit Concentrate solution in the drain at the car wash or wherever you ended up treating your appliance. Anyone who comes by after you will be very glad you did.


By following the process above, it's possible to save even the worst smelling refrigerator, which in turns means saving hundreds of dollars by not needing to buy a replacement. So if you know anyone who's currently trying to restore belongings like their refrigerator, feel free to share this post with them by email or on Facebook.

While spring cleaning is something that most homeowners think about and many take part in, it’s easier for people like college students who are living in dorms to overlook. But just because spring cleaning may not be as common throughout college dorms doesn’t mean you should skip it.
