The Power Of The Ionizer

By
Home Stager with Prudential Ambassador / Ross Designs, LLC

About two months ago I became intrigued by some of Michelle Molinari's comments about her industrial strength ionizer that is available for rent. I thought it sounded like a dream come true for sellers with odors in their home so I HAD to buy one and try it out.

I have had the opportunity to test it out a few times and so far the results have been great.  The most notable home was two weeks ago. The agent was at the property in the morning before the ionizer treatment to do her measuring, and she said she really didn't detect much of an odor.  She came back later that afternoon to drop off disclosure sheets AFTER the two hour ionizer treatment and she COULDN'T BELIEVE THE DIFFERENCE!  She said the house smelled clean and fresh (and trust me, this house was neither clean nor fresh!!).

Check out my promotional flier:

I am also going to make a sheet to post at the front door of homes during the treatment, so other vendors or family members don't in advertently walk in.

Cool Tori Lynn!

So glad you are experiencing success eradicating funky odors for your staged houses!

For anyone who is interested in more info on ionizers and how powerful they are, see my sister Sue's blog on Stinky Stenches.

I was just thinking about this the other day while staging a particularly stinky condo. It sounds like a great idea.

Maureen -  I would recommend contacting Michelle and asking more about the unit; she has been a wealth of information.

I would have loved to know about the effectiveness BEFORE my furnishings became infected with the stench of nicotine in a recent vacant staging!  Would you believe it has been two months since and the furnishings still stink?

Has it been beneficial for you to make available for rent? For the benefit of your own staging contracts?

These ARE great machines, we also have one and it's amazing.  I also bought the car version for my car when I bought it used (never buy new cars they loose value the minute you take them off the lot), anyway someone had smoked in it ALOT, but I loved the car and the color, etc.  SO, bought the plug in the cigarette lighter version and drove it around and within weeks the odor was gone forever and has never returned.  These machinces are amazing and that's why we offer them on our site too.  We are careful like you are Tori not to recommend things we don't KNOW work or have used ourselves.  Good post.  And I too like your photo.

Michelle - thanks again for letting me know about this little machine!

Maureen - enough other people have also tried these machines and loved them; should be a great service offering and a competitive advantage for a Staging company.

Tina - I have only had the unit for about a month so I am still experimenting, but I have identified a few ways that this will help set me apart and benefit my clients.

Cathy - glad to hear that you have also had great success.

Ronelle & Terrylynn - thanks for noticing my new head shot!  Just took and uploaded it today.  I still have some babyweight to lose so it's not my favorite, but it had to be updated.

Tory, I am going to check this out a little further. I have heard a lot of talk about it and believe me I have been in homes that can use it.
