The Advantages of Ozone Generators

What Ozone Generators Can and Cannot Do

Ozone Generators are a Green Solution to many problems. Ozone is perfect for broad-based Odor Removal, Disinfection, Allergen Elimination, and Fire, Flood & Mold Remediation. Below we will share with you the Pros and Cons of Ozone Generators:

What Ozone Generators CAN DO

  • Odor Removal: Because it is a strong oxidant, ozone will attack unpleasant odors (e.g. from smoke, cooking, mildew, pets, and etc.) at their source, cleaving the long chain molecules responsible and permanently eliminating the smell.
  • Mold Remediation: Ozone is lethal to molds, including toxigenic, black mold, etc. Ozone will eliminate mold and mildew odor and make it safer for the removal process.
  • Sanitization: As a gas, ozone is a broad based sanitizer capable of eliminating biological pollutants such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi, thus maintaining microbiological control.
  • Allergen Elimination: Dust mites, pollen, and other allergens cannot survive an indoor ozone shock treatment, bringing immediate relief to allergy sufferers.
  • Natural Disasters: Ozone has been used to remediate indoor environments impacted by floods, tornados, wild fires, and earthquakes.
  • Chemical Pollutants: VOCs such as benzene, formaldehyde, methylene chloride, and others will be oxidized and destroyed by ozone, one of nature's most powerful oxidizing agents.
  • Commercial Agriculture: There are many applications for ozone in agriculture, especially related to odor control and broad based disinfection for disease control.

What Ozone Generators CANNOT DO

  • Remove Dead Mold: Ozone shock treatments will kill any mold; however, the dead mold still must be physically removed, since even dead mold can be allergenic. Additionally, the moisture source in the building must be eliminated to prevent reoccurrence.
  • Create a Pest Control Barrier: Ozone shock treatments will drive may insects / pests out of a building; however, there is no residual effect to prevent reoccurrence.
  • Remove Carpet Stains: Ozone shock treatments will eliminate the chemical and biological pollutants in carpets; however, it will not eliminate a stain.
  • Replace Dry Cleaning: Ozone shock treatments will sanitize clothing, bedding, and window coverings; however, professional dry cleaning may be required to remove visible residue.
  • Mitigate Radon Issues: Ozone shock treatments will oxidize radon gas; however, because the gas continually forms in the soil underneath the property, actual mitigation strategies are required.
