My own company’s experience with blocking odors comes from using products like KILZ to seal smoke odors during insurance renovations, this was a nasty job requiring respirators and ventilation, not something that you wanted to do in an occupied home. We never tried anything that would “remove” the odors, so I was intrigued when Vinnie Valle contacted Blogging Painters to share his product.
I had a lovely phone chat with him, Vinnie is retired from a lifelong painting career and has spent years refining Ionic Paint, an additive that he claims can be added to the paint and actually removes offensive odors. I posted a press release here and continued the dialogue with him, asking him to connect me with a previous customer
Here is what one customer had to say:
Happy to share my happiness — with Ionic Aire paint additive.I live in a 100+ year old rural house where the bathroom was tacked onto the kitchen. Not pleasant in many respects. My place is a magnet for “drop-offs,” cats nobody wants. Some come in, some stay out, but all are fixed and have shots.At present there are 7 cats inside – at times more – while the number of outdoor cats is ever-changing. I use 3 plastic totes for litter boxes – each double the size of a regular litter box – 1 in the bathroom and 2 in the spare bedroom. That’s where they have to be placed – no other options. And so, every once in awhile, the “aroma” drifts into the kitchen and living room.I’m 77 years old and slowing down, so the painting is going slowly. First, I did the “litter box wall” in the bathroom, and was amazed at the immediate results. Only problem was right after a kitty eliminated, and that only for a few minutes. Now, with all bathroom walls done, there is no odor, and the kitchen is once again a place where my guests and I can have coffee at the table – pleasantly.Some painting remains to be done, but I will get there; and I am confident that my home will remain odor free for a long time! The creator of Ionic Aire Paint Additive deserves a medal, or a peace prize!Thank you for allowing me to share my fabulous experience.Sincerely,Phyllis
