In mid-July the basement of our home flooded. We had to replace baseboards, rip up carpet, shop-vac the cement and walls, and bring in about 5 fans to dry the place off. Unfortunately, our basement has no windows so there was no airflow to remove the musty smell and we were unable to completely avoid mold that had developed as a result. In mid-July in Calgary, temperatures reached 30 degrees and so that coupled with the water damage made the entire room stifling and the smell just would not go away. We tried everything: Febreeze, baking soda for the carpet, about 3 different odor-remover sprays; nothing worked. We are trying to sell our house so you can imagine the panic we were in to remove the smell and the risk of mold from our basement in an economy where houses are having difficulty selling as it is. We were given the opportunity to try out the Air Sniper and I am truly in shock after using it for 2 days:
There is no more smell.
I want to emphasize that point: in just two days there is no more smell. Zero. After one day we noticed a substantial difference. After two days it is completely gone. The air in our basement is fresh. It’s CLEAN. We didn’t have to try and cover the smell with overpowering perfumes (which didn’t work anyway). There were body odor smells, mold spores, overpowering humid smells. Now, there is nothing. We are going to be able to bring potential buyers into our home and will have no fear of bringing them into our basement, which is a huge selling feature in our area (having a developed basement).
I cannot express enough how, a) surprised I am at how quickly it worked, and b) how well it actually worked. This product is amazing and I am so thankful that we were able to use it. Our house lists in 2 days, we are now ready to sell, and I am forever going to be an Air Sniper advocate.
I am so very impressed with the benefits of having the units in the house. We have seen marked improvements in air quality and a positive impact that has on our general health and how we feel. The improvements are tangible.
We have noticed there is a lot less dust in the air and settling in the house, particularly in our bedroom. We find that we are sleeping better with much less disturbance due to asthma symptoms and it is more restful. The humidity level in the house has improved and we are seeing benefits such as, seeing some improvement in the state of my skin, which tends to be extremely dry this time of year, since we received the units.
