Horns of Africa


This may have been the most unique deodorization job we have ever had.

One of our customers participated in medieval festivals, so they imported this animal skull from Africa to use as a prop. Before being shipped to the U.S., the skull was sprayed with a combination of diesel fuel and pesticide. Crude yes, but it was the only thing they had to comply with export standards for this kind of item.

Needless to say, when our customer received it, the smell was horrific and overpowering. We treated the skull with the BioSweep vapor for several hours in a containment chamber and then let it off-gas for a couple of days.

The result was a complete removal of the fuel/bug spray smell and I imagine they are still using the skull as a prop today.
