Ozone treatment, so called ozonation, is a method of disinfection without chemicals where the biocidal factor is ozone, a gas with strong oxidizing properties.
Ozone treatment is an ideal way anywhere in the immediate human environment is required for microbiological purity and sterility and to obtain an environment free from undesirable odors and various pathogens.
Ozonation is an excellent and environmentally friendly method that not only sterilize areas where you are but will let you get rid of any unwanted odors from your surroundings. Ozonation is a safe method, and its main advantage is physical removal of all odors rather than masking them.
One of the most common uses of ozone generator is ozonation of car to remove unpleasant odors . Regardless of whether you are dealing with cigarette smoke, musty / mold, spilled milk, or any other - using an ozonator, you can easily get rid of them if you follow a few standard procedures.
Just as with any ozone treatment always start by removing / purify the source of the smell ! For example, if you are dealing with mold than mechanically clean the contaminated areas, if possible with the use of cleaning agents and / or fungicides. If you have a problem with rodents / insects than remove any nests, dead animals, their feces / urine that only you can find. If the source of the smell is stain / spill on the carpet or upholstery, pre-wash affected area or wash them completely.
At this stage, you are ready to use ozone generator. Depending on the type of the ozonator, and the specific situation you can set it inside or outside the car. For many ozone generators (eg. For OZONIZER OZ-5 ) often easiest way is to set it inside the car , on the front passenger seat or armrest and connect to an extension cord. Extension can slip through the slightly opened window or door ajar.
If you are using ozonator, which has the ability to connect the ventilation pipe at the output of ozone then it can be set outside of the car. Ozone is then drawn into the interior of the car via said pipe that you need to enter through the slightly opened window. This generally requires that a user has found a way to seal the rest of the opened window, eg. using a wide masking tape, foam sheets or foil, etc.
Ozone (O3), sometimes called "active oxygen", is a gas whose molecule contains three, instead of two oxygen atoms, such as oxygen, which we normally breathe. In other words, ozone is oxygen (O2) with additional oxygen atom.
Ozone, being a very unstable gas, is rapidly converted to its original form that is oxygen (O2) and a third released oxygen atom reacts with the substance on which the ozone works. Ozone is therefore an excellent disinfectant, one of the strongest known to man.
