How does Ozone Treatment work?
An Ozone machine can be utilized in the room(s) that require odor remediation. The machine produces small amounts of Ozone (O3) . When these molecules come in contact with odor molecules, the extra oxygen atom binds itself to the odor molecule and destroys it. Since O3 is a weak-bonded molecule, it is aggressive at destroying odor-causing molecules.
The ozone-generated air then penetrates the carpets, air ducts, and walls where odors hide, creating long-lasting freshness. The result is odorless, fresh air sent straight into your home, apartment, or business
The benefits from the Ozone Treatment are the following:
- It can sanitize, disinfect and deodorize;
- It has no residue and leaves only pure oxygen behind;
- It can eliminate cigarette smoke, pet odors, cooking odors, organic odors, etc.
Unoccupied spaces only
- The EPA, FDA, and the American Lung Association recommend that the ozone is only used during times the space is not occupied;
- Anyone with a respiratory issue such as COPD, asthma, or emphysema should consult with their physician before ozone treatment;
- Ozone at higher levels can irritate the eyes and respiratory system.
- Wait at least 2 hours after the ozone machine has been turned off to occupy the space. Windows and doors may need to be opened as well.
