Ozone Generators - What Are They?

Ozone Generators - What Are They?

Ozone generators are best used for the removal of odours, especially associated with properties affected by fire and smoke damage. These contaminants are destroyed permanently in the oxidation process when they come in contact with high concentrations of ozone gas. Odours, will not return if the source is fully destroyed – this requires a high concentration of ozone and access to the contaminant source.

Ozone generators produces ozone (O3 gas) that helps deodorise, disinfect and remove dangerous airborne particles and odorous compounds that may be hazardous to health. It destroys the odours rather than just covering them up and doesn’t last too long as it oxidises the area and then dissipates into the atmosphere.

Where can Ozone Generators be Used?

Ozone Generators are commonly used to remove the smell of smoke in fire restoration jobs, remove musty odours at the source in water damaged properties.

Ozone generators will not remove the physical substance but will be able to successfully decontaminate the affected region. They may also be a cheaper alternative to cleaning when compared to using chemicals or replacing affected regions.

Safety with Ozone Generators

Oxygen consists of two molecules, ozone has three molecules which allows it to act upon organic materials permanently destroy them. As with chemicals and other cleaning agents, high concentrations of ozone gases may be a health hazard if inhaled. Ozone gases may be harmful for humans and pets therefore it is important to allow the treated region needs to be fully ventilated before humans or animals are allowed to re-enter the area.

Ozone gases need to dissipate back to normal breathable air (Ozone reverts back to oxygen after it is used). It is important to remember that an Ozone Generator is run when the space is unoccupied by humans and pets. Professionals such as those at Juvenaire would be able to safely operate the ozone generator without causing harm to the operator.
