What is Ozone Treatment and Odor Removal?
For some smells, traditional air fresheners and other methods are simply not enough to remove the smell entirely. Instances of fire damage, mold, and even rotten smells may be cause to get a professional ozone treatment done on your home or property.
Ozone is a colorless gas that is very reactive and that does have the ability to oxidize odors. Ozone is similar to the oxygen that we breathe save for the fact that each molecule is made up of three atoms of oxygen rather than two as in the air that we breathe.
An ozone generator is used in a professional ozone treatment to generate these ozone atoms, the atoms then attach to and react with the odor molecules to neutralize them. The machine works to break down the molecules and bacteria that are causing the smells and then breaks them down into components that do not stink.
Ozone treatments and ozone generators are highly effective and are great in cases like a house fire where there is smoke damage and difficult smells. Ozone treatments are great for just about any smell that is hard to tackle and that might not be easily removed with things like air fresheners and more.
Professional Ozone Treatments
It is important to note that it is always going to be best to have a professional ozone treatment rather than try to do it yourself for a few reasons. For starters, ozone can be dangerous in very high concentrations. An ozone machine does create high levels of ozone and can cause sickness if the machine is not properly vented and regulated.
It is highly beneficial to have a professional ozone treatment as a means of removing tough and difficult odors to help make sure that your home is going to smell great and that there are no traces of any foul odors. Professional treatment is the most thorough and fastest way to get rid of tough odors that might be making it difficult to live in your home. A professional company is going to be able to come in and get rid of the smell quickly so that you can get back to living.
