If persistent, noxious odors are invading your home or basement look no further than BioZap Air Purifier and Deodorizer to purify your living space from unpleasant smells. BioZap utilizes the unique powers of Australian Tea Tree Oil and is particularly effective in areas where musty odors are caused by molds and mildew, such as basements, crawlspaces, boats, and water-damaged buildings.
Simply remove the lid of the BioZap jar, place it in the affected room, and allow for it to gently release vapors of the essential oil into the air. Released vapors will permeate throughout the living space and into porous materials, like curtains, upholstery, carpeting, and drywall. Over time the vapors will not only "scrub" the air and furnishings of the odors but will also make the air "smell clean."
All-Natural Solution – Chemical solutions will normally mask odors and can even make the situation worse. The Australian Tea Tree Oil does not just mask odors with a scent but breaks them down. Unlike man-made cleaners BioZap contains no synthetic scents or harmful VOCs and the vapors of the Australian Tea Tree oil are not harmful to humans or pets. The essential oil used is classified as non-hazardous.
Five Herbal Scents – Most "air fresheners" use synthetic fragrances derived from petroleum, which release harmful Volatile Organic Compounds but not BioZap. Beside the natural unscented version, BioZap is available in several very light scents made from natural herbal oils.

BioZap uses a premium grade of Tea Tree Oil imported directly from Australia. It is a gel-like foam (patent pending) packaged in hermetically sealed plastic jars with a screw-on lid. Once opened, the contents slowly evaporate, usually over a period of 2 to 3 months depending on the jar size and air flow, leaving little residue. Use a jar in each affected room. The vapors of the Australian Tea Tree oil are not harmful to humans or pets and the essential oil is classified as non-hazardous.
LIGHT ODOR – ONE (1) 16-oz. jar covers up to 1,000 sq. ft. STRONG ODORS – For worse conditions, use two or more jars in the affected room, or several jars throughout the house.
Shelf Life – 1 year
Storage – Store in a cool place and out of direct sunlight. During warm or prolonged storage, the gel may liquefy but this does not change its effectiveness. If needed, the gel can be partially restored by cooling the jar in a refrigerator.
BioZap is used against mold and mildew odor so it's most common use is in musty smelling basements and crawlspaces. Place jars in living spaces with high humidity or during periods of muggy weather (A/C systems cannot reduce humidity enough) which are prone to molds and mildew:
BioZap is also effective against body odor, pet odor, and smoke odor making it ideal for use in gyms (used in various Fitness Edge® locations), locker rooms, kennels, and for restorations. Use for confined or gathering places to eliminate body sweat and pet odors:
Deodorize Smelly Furniture, Clothing, and Books – Normally, these items have to be discarded but BioZap has proved successful in salvaging them. Place the affected items in a smaller dry room like a garage or a tent and spread them out or hang them up to allow access of air. Use several jars of BioZap Air Purifier and a fan to blow the vapors over the items.
Feedback from BioZap Customers
"We put the 2 jars in the small 500 square basement and one upstairs. In 2 days I opened the door to our rental property, I could smell this new smell that didn't make me want to throw up and I could breathe..."
"This is the third time we have ordered BioZap Air Purifier and Deodorizer and we absolutely love this remarkable product. Our basement gets very damp and we have to run dehumidifiers to get rid of the moisture. With the help of BioZap we are able to reduce the use of our dehumidifier and the basement smells so much cleaner..."
"I put the Bio-Zap near the intake of the air handler on my tug boat. The musty smell was gone in a few days. I am a believer!"
"I have tried many products (bioworld, odoban, nokout) for my musty odor problem and nothing was working.I then tried BioZap and noticed a difference right away..."
Read Customers' Feedback on Cleaning Molds, Mildew, and Musty Odors
Molds float in the air and settle on surfaces but are invisible until they build up as a large growth. But when the molds munch on cellulose and organic matter, they emit alcohols and aldehydes detectable as a “musty smell,” which gives them away. The moldy, musty smell is the first warning sign of growing molds.
Eliminate the odors with BioZap and take the proper steps to prevent the growth of molds by reducing air humidity, ideally to below 50%. Basements and foundation slabs are the single largest source of humidity in your home – concrete is porous and lets in several times more water vapor than showering and cooking combined!
As a quick solution, you can purchase a dehumidifier but its power consumption costs about $40 per month. For a permanent solution, seal the concrete floors and underground walls with RadonSeal® Deep-Penetrating Concrete Sealer and caulk all cracks or gaps. This will save you a bundle compared to running a dehumidifier.
In the last decade, the use of Tea Tree Oil has spread rapidly. High-grade Australian Tea Tree Oil is used in hospitals as antiseptic and according to studies published in American scientific journals, tea tree oil has been proven effective against MRSA (the “hospital killer bug”), Candida (a yeast), and Legionella (a bacteria).
EPA Approved? – Tea tree oil cannot be marketed to as pesticide or fungicide or bactericide in the U.S. because it has not been approved by the government. The approval process is largely self-financed by the industry and no company will invest millions of dollars on a naturally growing product that is not patentable. Tea Tree is used in a variety of products on the market today, including:
There are over three hundred varieties of the Melaleuca tree but only one, the Australian Melaleuca Alternifolia, has been found to have both antiseptic and fungicidal properties. This bushy tree is native to New South Wales in Australia. Its volatile essential oil is produced by steam distillation of its foliage.
Australian Tea Tree oil is a complex of over 100 naturally occurring compounds. It is the only tea tree oil tested in Australia for antibiotic, antifungal, and antiviral properties. Its composition has to meet strict quality criteria of the Australian government. But cheap tea tree oil is also available in health food stores and there are homemade concoctions against molds or bedbugs. Low-grade tea tree oil is made from residue left after the first pressing of the essential oil or is imported from Asia with little quality control. Its effectiveness is much lower and its medicinal smell stronger. Not suitable for BioZap.
The Australian aborigines discovered the medicinal properties of Tea Tree Oil. During WW II, the first-aid kits of Australian soldiers contained Tea Tree Oil as a “cure-all” for wounds, infections, and everything else from head lice to trench foot. It is also widely used in Europe for aroma therapy, various medicinal and cosmetic products. More on the unique powers of Australian Tea Tree Oil
Synthetic air fresheners release harmful Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) – Research shows that a chemical compound (1,4-dichlorobenzene) found in many air fresheners may be harmful to the lungs – Synthetic air fresheners can cause lung damage (published by National Institutes of Health in June, 2006). Asthma risk to small children rises as their home exposure to 1,4-DCB increases (study published in Thorax in 2005). Remarkably, 96% of Americans have detectable levels of 1,4-DCB in their blood.
Ozone is More Than Harmful – The popular electronic air filters/electrostatic precipitators release ozone, especially when dirty. As charged particles pass by the high-voltage wires inside the air cleaner, electrons jump to the particles, causing a small arc or spark, which generates ozone. A study by the US EPA and CDCP (January 2006) has found that ozone, even at the current "safety limit" (80 parts per billion outdoors and 50 ppb indoors) increases the risk of premature death. Even very low concentrations of ozone are dangerous. An increase of 10 ppb increases premature mortality in the population by 0.3 percent.
