One of the most important pieces of equipment in a fire or water loss is a hydroxyl generator.

Mother Nature is wonderful in the way it uses hydroxyl molecules to cleanse and decontaminate our outdoor environment. Hydroxyls actually neutralize odor molecules and gasses by breaking down their chemical bonds. This can be done with even some of the most difficult molecules, such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and ammonia (NH3). However, hydroxyls do not occur naturally indoors.

HGI Industries created a solution, through years of field testing, that mimics Mother Nature by safely generating hydroxyl molecules that naturally seek and destroy odor molecules, bacteria, viruses, VOCs, and other chemicals, and HGI developed a patented process for this solution.

  • Hydroxyls are an important agent that
    scrub and cleanse our planet’s
  • Hydroxyls (HO) are naturally
    occurring molecules
  • Hydroxyls are created in our
    atmosphere when the sun’s ultraviolet
    rays react with water vapor in the air


The second piece of technology that Action Restoration Ltd uses is an ATP tester. The most commonly adopted method for real-time monitoring of cleaning process performance, ATP testing is used throughout the world for its sensitivity, speed and convenience.


Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is present in all animal, vegetable, bacteria, yeast and mold cells, and detection of ATP indicates the presence of contamination by any one of these sources. ATP tests provide clear results in seconds.

When these systems are used in harmony, customers can rest assured knowing that their contents are safe and bacteria free.
