We don't just deodorize, or try to hide odors. We eliminate them completely using all natural, OZONE!
What is ozone?
Ozone, (O3), sometimes called "activated oxygen", contains three atoms of oxygen rather than the two atoms in the air we normally breathe. Ozone is one of the most powerful sterilizers in the world and can destroy virtually all biological based odors as well as bacteria, viruses, mold and mold spores. It has been used for many years in water treatment facilities throughout the world.
How does ozone eliminate odor?
The third oxygen atom of ozone is extremely reactive. This atom readily attaches itself to other organic molecules. When contaminants such as odors, bacteria or viruses make contact with ozone, their chemical structure is oxidized. This breakdown in their structure kills bacteria and viruses and breakdowns biological odorous compounds. Ozone reverts back to oxygen after a very short period of time. This makes it a very environmentally friendly oxidant.
How long does the ozone last?
As soon as ozone is dispersed in a room, it will quickly start to revert back to oxygen. This occurs as the extra oxygen atom begins to react with organic materials such as bacteria, smoke, or other odor elements. The residual ozone that remains will break down into O2 (oxygen) with a half- life of about 30 minutes. That is to say that each 30 minute period will see half of the total available ozone dissipated. Therefore, ozone, while very powerful, doesn't last long. It does its job and then disappears back into safe oxygen.
Will the odor come back?
No. If the source of the malodor has been removed and the ozone is applied properly it will destroy the odor. Treatment times vary depending on the the type of odor being treated and the strength of the odor, but 98% of ozone treatments are successful. In the case of mold or mildew the problem will return if you are unable to get rid of the moisture that is the source of the problem.
