Ozone Over-Treatment

We are in a new phase of ozone treatments, and that is good news.  We have seen the ozone generators increase in power and decrease in size.  Ozone is a product of nature that is amazingly sustainable idea since it uses oxygen (O2) to make ozone (O3), then quickly returns to oxygen (O2).  Ozone depletes no natural resources, and it leaves not waste or residue behind.

Remove Ozone Smells after Treatment

While ozone treatments are becoming more accepted and common, there is some post ozone treatments questions to answer.  As you should know, ozone is just another form of oxygen as O2 is temporarily converted to O3.  Ozone reverts back to the normal O2 state in about 20-30 minutes.  It leave no chemical residue, and once the building is ventilated with fresh air, there is no health concerns for health issues.

Best Ozone Generator for Odors

After hours of reading the Internet Hype, it is very difficult to determine which is the best ozone generator for odor, sanitizing, or mold treatments.  Most ozone equipment are little machines pretending to be big machines.  It seems that they suffer from an inferiority complex, so 4000 and 5000 mg/hr machines claims to be able to treat your home for every possible threat.  These small systems are like vacuuming your carpet with a minivac that barely has enough vacuum to pick up a small pebble.

Get Rid of Pet Urine Odors

It is always a good idea to immediately clean up any pet urine areas as soon as they happen.  Use simple vinegar water to dilute the area, and absorb the area with a towel to prevent permanent damage or odors.  However, most pet urine problems are not found until they have gone deeply into carpet, padding, and subfloor.  If you didn't catch the problem early, here is what you are facing.

Compare Ozone Generators

National Ozone AssociationIf you spend much time on the Internet, or search the "Ozone Generators" to compare ozone generators; it gets very confusing.  This is because regardless of boasts and claims, no one uses a verified source to support what they claim.  Even pages of proof and evidence are unsubstantiated by any reference.

Timer for Ozone Generators

We are pleased to be one of the leaders in timers used for an ozone generator.  One criticism from a jealous competitor said that timers will fail in ozone environments.  Really?  Ozone is used all the time in industrial applications where electronic equipment is used to test, measure, and control the equipment.  Aquariums use ozone to sanitize the water.

Chinese Ozone Systems Fail too Soon

We at All Ozone get calls from people who bought a Chinese ozone generator that is no longer working. Without any unkindness, when it comes to Chinese products, quality is a big question.  There are not the controls on manufacturing that we have in other countries, and cheap product are the result of cutting corners.  So, here is what we see.  Chinese ozone generators (including the myriad of vendors reselling Chinese ozone generators) are made of steel, which will rust.  Ozone accelerates rust, so that is the first problem.

Smelly Real Estate Cure

I just spoke with a home inspector who was interested in odor removal.  He obviously is very observant, and said that recently at least 70% of real estate for sale have noticeable odors.  Odors are something may seek to ignore when possible.  Otherwise, they mask the odors with potpourri or fragrance diffusers.  This is unfortunate and a little unfair.  How much better to literally get rid of those odors?  

Using an Ozone Generator in Adverse Conditions

No matter how durable your ozone generator may be, using it in rough conditions will be hard on the system.  This applies to mold treatments, hoarder homes, flood, homes near salt water, and even a filthy apartment.  If there is a lot of junk in the air, it will build up on the ozone plates.  So, learning to clean your ozone plates is very important.  Use a cotton swab and either rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide.  The idea is to gently clean off the darker contaminants on the plates.

Not a Hacked Ozone Generator

There is a major division when it comes to ozone generators.  Those that were built to be an ozone generator, and those that took the short-cut of converting a blower, fan, or vacuum.  The concerns are valid that warranties are voided, parts were not designed for an ozone application, and the system is an after-market add-on.  That is why we refer to them as "Hacked" ozone generators.
