Our cutting-edge technologies destroy airborne and surface contaminants within any enclosed environment, including malodor, mould, viruses, bacteria and most IAQ nuisances.

Since 2007, our ﬂagship service, BIOSWEEP BASE TREATMENT, has been safely destroying malodors from embedded, hard to kill odour sources such as cigarette smoke, ﬁre smoke, mold, mildew and others.
Our BIOSWEEP SURFACE DEFENCE
Is a proprietary antimicrobial solution which is specially applied to provide up to one year of durable and effective surface protection.

BIOSWEEP BASE TREATMENT utilises the BIOSWEEP machines. These portable units utilise Advanced Photocatalytic Oxidation (APO) and are high output devices. APO is a multi-stage process of oxidant generation that produces gas phase hydrogen peroxide, puriﬁed ozone, and hydroxyl radicals all as a plasma, which simultaneously destroy virtually all organic microbes in enclosed treatment areas.
BASE TREATMENT offers superior performance and results over comparable technologies on the market today. It eliminates the need for deodorisation and outperforms inferior technologies like ozone generators, reducing treatment times up to ninety-percent.
BASE TREATMENT is a low-temperature, residue-free technology with excellent materials compatibility (including sensitive electronics). The technology does not produce nitric oxides so it enables franchisees to offer a safe, highly effective, yet corrosion and residue free solution to IAQ problems. The entire process is environmentally friendly and leaves no harmful residue.
Sophisticated gas monitoring equipment is utilised by our trained technicians to assure the safe and effective use of our service.
Its portability provides maximum ﬂexibility for a wide range of cleaning and restoration applications.
BIOSWEEP SURFACE DEFENCE utilises an industry leading antimicrobial technology that molecularly bonds to virtually any surface reducing microbial growth between routine surface cleaning.
SURFACE DEFENCE provides durable surface protection, continuously working 24/7, to inhibit the growth of microbes which can lead to sickness, stains, odours or deterioration of products.
Our Surface Defense treatment system is non-toxic, non-leaching and safe for use on all surfaces including plastic, ﬁberglass, metals, glass, wood, ceramics, stone, natural material and composites.
Proprietary and environmentally friendly accessory chemicals are used on certain applications with BIOSWEEP equipment.
BIOSWEEP Quality Assurance Monitoring is available as ongoing program to ensure that cleanliness standards are being met. Our ATP Hygiene Monitoring System immediately determines the hygienic status of surfaces tested to ensure environmental cleanliness is maintained.
Our monitoring system utilizes state-of-the art electronics, an upgraded software program and improved functionality. The palm-sized device is easy to use, and extremely sensitive.

“Outstanding performance. BIOSWEEP accomplishes in such a short time what was difﬁcult to achieve with an ozone machine over vast amounts of time. This technology has streamlined our operations and allowed us to provide more efﬁcient and effective operations for our customers.”

“We here at BIOSWEEP Southeast are very happy to be a part of the BIOSWEEP family. We have found the BIOSWEEP technology to be extremely effective and Phocatox to be very supportive and essential in the startup process of our franchise. From the moment we began we felt like we were not alone in this new business venture. Phocatox has always been very easy to reach and eager to help with any problems. Their insight and ideas has proved to be very useful and the BIOSWEEP process has given us an edge over all our competitors in the decontamination industry.”
Michael J. BIOSWEEP SOUTHEAST (South Carolina)
“I have owned a deodorizing business for 7 years and am a one man operation so far, but that may be changing soon with BIOSWEEP. In our ﬁrst month of full out marketing and usage of BIOSWEEP we doubled our income from our previous high month in over 7 years of business. That was before even marketing BIOSWEEP Surface Defense. Enough said.
The thing I like most about the business is that it matches my goal of having a system that WORKS! With BIOSWEEP, I can go into any deodorizing /decontaminating situation with full conﬁdence that I have the BEST and most COMPLETE answer to solving the problem. The major beneﬁts are the quick turnaround on investment, and the attitude you can have when approaching a potential client knowing you have something that will absolutely take care of whatever their odor eradication problem may be. The corporate support, training and marketing support have been excellent. I have visited franchise owners in two other cities and have been thrilled with how open and willing they are to share their experience and help with any questions I have.
What advice would I give someone considering BIOSWEEP? What is holding you back? Experience? Training? Financing? Conﬁdence? It’s really just a matter of pulling the trigger on getting started. The support is all in place. Stop wasting time.”
