A local family purchased a relatively new, previous-owned 42’ motor yacht that had an unpleasant smell to it. They were told by their boat broker that it was due to a “head malfunction” wherein human waste got into the bilge of the boat. Their boat broker had hired a professional boat cleaning service to give it their standard cleaning mostly below decks and the sale was completed.
After using the boat a couple of weekends the owner’s teenage children no longer wanted to get on the boat because the smell issue had returned.
They called us, Odor Removal Experts, and we met them at their slip in Newport Beach. After a careful inspection we gave them a quote, it was accepted and we began work that same day.
We used our professional-grade, very powerful ozone generating equipment to solve their odor problem. Since ozone is heavier than air, physics makes it easy to get the ozone below decks and have it stay there where the smell lives. By filling the boat with ozone we can treat insulation on the ceiling of below deck, all of the fiberglass surfaces, air ducts, etc. Ozone can get into nooks and crannies.
We treated the boat until the smell was satisfactorily removed for all parties. Their kids were happy.
If you have a boat of any size we would love to help you get control of any odor issues you might have. Call at (714) 605-0846 or use our handy contact form.
