ODOR ELIMINATION & AIR QUALITY IMPROVEMENT
All of us face a variety of risks to our health as we go about our day-to-day lives. Driving in cars, flying in planes, engaging in recreational activities and being exposed to environmental pollutants all pose varying degrees of risk. Some risks are simply unavoidable. Some we choose to accept because to do otherwise would restrict our ability to lead our lives the way we want. And some are risks we might decide to avoid if we had the opportunity to make informed choices. Indoor air pollution is one risk that you can do something about.
One of the best ways to eliminate odors and improve the quality of air indoors, either at your office or home is by using High-ozone shock treatment. What is ozone? Ozone (O³) is a gas composed of 3 oxygen atoms combined in a ring. Ozone itself is a blue colored gas, which has a distinct odor, and is about one and a half times heavier than air. When it is under pressure, it is an unstable gas that decomposes readily into molecular oxygen.
Ozone molecules wipe out unwanted odors and render the air clean and fresh before reverting back to oxygen. Ozone is created in nature during a thunderstorm, but it cannot be stored – for deodorizing and anti-bacterial applications it must be physically generated on site. Ozone is the world’s second most powerful sterilizer and is highly effective at destroying viruses, bacteria and odors.
BENEFITS OF CLEANING WITH OZONE:
Ozone treatment will remove:
- the smell of cooking, such as fried fish and curry, permanently.
- smells from cats and dogs.
- cigarette smells from curtains, upholstery and from a room filled with smoke.
- paint smells after decorating.
- the spores that cause mold.
- the smell of dead vermin such as decaying rodents.
- the smell of urine from toilets and other areas.
The best way to describe what our Ozone Generators smell like is quite simply put like the smell you get after a thunder storm. The process is exactly the same as nature during a storm; when the lightening charges the air, we are just replicating that process using electricity from the mains in a very controlled way.
Remember the last thunder storm you saw and walked outside and took a deep breath? Wasn’t the smell wonderful and you just wanted more to fill your lungs because you don’t know when you would get this freshness again? Luckily now you can whenever you switch on your ozone generator.
IS OZONE HARMFUL AND WHAT IF ANY ARE THE LONG TERM EFFECTS?
Ozone isn’t new and several studies have been conducted on it over the last century. Numerous regulatory bodies including Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), say the safe levels for residual is 0.10-ppm (parts per million). Remember that this exposure is for continued exposure - 8 hours a day, for 5 days a week! The interim side effects of low exposure could be sore throats, headaches, irritation of nose and eyes, etc. However, there would be no long-term side effects, or at least, they haven’t been registered so far. You can ask Ozone Solutions for MSDS sheets, if you want to take a look at the figures for yourself.
