Before we dive into the benefits of using an Ozone Generator, let us get a better understanding of what Ozone is and how it works!
Most of us are familiar with dioxygen or “O2” (the oxygen we breathe every day) which contains two oxygen molecules. Ozone is an activated form of oxygen that contains three oxygen molecules, commonly referred to as “O3” or trioxygen. Since the third molecule of O3 is unstable it can attach itself to contaminants at a molecular level and is able to eradicate the substance. This process removes the pollutant and returns the ozone back to oxygen.
Ozone generators produce ozone through a process that happens naturally in the atmosphere. Typically, these devices use a corona discharge technology that creates an electric discharge that produces ozone by breaking apart the regular oxygen molecules in the air into single molecules.
Below we have listed the main benefits that make using an ozone generator an ideal choice for any space where air purity is essential.
Eliminate Odours Naturally
The most common use for ozone generators is removing odours. The ozone generator will transform a foul-smelling substance into a non-odorous substance by destroying the airborne cells that produce the odour, all without the use of harmful chemicals. Once ozone has done its job it converts back to oxygen. This ability can be extremely useful for several different purposes such as property owners who look after apartment complexes and have had tenants move out, especially if they had pets. This will save them from having to replace any carpet or paying for expensive carpet cleaning services. This is also a frequent practice in the hospitality industry for hotel rooms that have been smoked in, or by homeowners who want to remove an offensive odour in their home.
Eliminate Bacteria, Germs, and Viruses
Since the pandemic, most of us are hyper-aware of the bacteria, germs, and viruses that lurk around our homes and workplaces. These substances can attach themselves to any object, therefore, increasing the possibility of someone catching an illness. However, ozone is known for being an oxidizing agent and it has been proven to be highly effective in killing bacteria, germs, and inactivating viruses by attacking the contaminants at the molecular level. Therefore, ozone can be used to treat contaminated surfaces due to its powerful germicidal effect. Businesses can benefit by cutting down on employee sick days by using an ozone generator after hours to rid the work environment of harmful substances.
Eliminate Mould & Mildew
Using ozone generators to get rid of mould and mildew is a widespread practice in most commercial environments. Mould spores can wreak havoc on the lungs and respiratory system. Mould and mildew can be very detrimental to one’s overall health and can cause asthma, allergies, and skin rashes, so getting them removed is crucial. With the use of ozone generators, mould and mildew can be removed in a fast and inexpensive manner. Buildings can benefit immensely from regular ozone treatments. This is a much more affordable option than replacing drywall, carpet, AC ductwork, etc.
These are some of the most popular reasons why people choose to use an ozone generator in their space, but ozone generators have a variety of different use cases.
