How Ozone Generators Remediate Smoke Smell
How Ozone Generators Eliminate the Smell of Smoke
Ozone generators are used to remove smoke smell from a property. In this article, we'll discuss how ozone is made, the science behind it, and how it's used to remove smoke smells.
What is an ozone generator?
An ozone generator is a device that emits ozone in the air. It's typically used to clean up rooms, buildings and other areas that have a bad smell. Ozone generators can be used indoors or outdoors, even after the smoke smell from a fire has already dissipated.
For example, if there was an electrical fire in your home and you had to get out quickly, there will still be lingering smoke smells left over after the flames have been extinguished. These odors can be hard to get rid of on their own; but with an ozone generator it's easy! With one quick pass of your unit through each area affected by the smoke smell — whether it be simply walking through all affected rooms or using some sort of fan system — the room will feel fresh again!
Ozone generators are also good options if there was mold in your home at any point before this incident happened (or if there is now). The high levels of humidity caused by flooding leaves behind spores which need cleaning up immediately because otherwise they'll spread throughout nearby areas quickly creating more problems down the line.
How does it work?
Ozone generators are powerful oxidizers that break down organic compounds in the air. Ozone, the ozone generator's product, is a gas that can be used in a variety of ways. It's produced by an ozone generator and acts as an odor neutralizer by attacking smoke odors at the source. Ozone is naturally occurring in the earth's atmosphere and created by lightning when it strikes oxygen molecules in the air.
Is ozone bad for my stuff?
Ozone is a natural element that comes from the air, so it's not harmful to people or animals. Ozone is safe to use in homes, offices, and other settings where ozone generators are used to remediate smoke smell.
Ozone does not damage furniture, carpet, clothing, or other household items. If you're concerned about using an ozone generator around your belongings, test a small area before using it all over if you have any doubt at all about whether it might be harmful.
Important factors in odor removal
Ozone is a powerful oxidizer. In the presence of smoke, ozone will react with the organic molecules and break them apart. When this happens, the odor will be removed from your home. Ozone is not effective at removing other odors besides smoke or mold and mildew. It can't remove pet odors because they're caused by bacteria that grow on the surfaces where pets spend time (their beds, for example).
If you want to neutralize a room filled with smoke odor, consider using an ozone generator in combination with another method like dehumidifiers or air purifiers (or both!).
What is the key to ozone's effectiveness?
The key to ozone's effectiveness is its ability to kill bacteria, viruses, and mold. In fact, ozone is an extremely powerful oxidizer. It can be used to purify water by oxidizing organic contaminants like pesticides, herbicides, and other toxins in the water.
Ozone generators are also used for deodorization in a variety of industries such as food processing plants where they eliminate odors from smelly foods such as fish or chicken carcasses that may have spoiled during processing into products such as tuna fish cans or chicken nuggets.
Ozone generators also help remediate smoke smell from fire damage by using the same principle: killing bacteria with ozone gas so that no further contamination occurs after your home has been cleared out of fumes or toxic particles from a fire rescue effort
Why SERVPRO professionals recommend using ozone to remediate a home after a fire.
Ozone generators are a safe and effective way to remove smoke smell after a fire. They're also safe for use around pets and children. In addition, ozone generators are portable, so you can use them in any room of the home.
They're easy to use: Simply plug in your ozone generator, turn it on and set it on the floor near where you'd like to deodorize. Within minutes, that smoke smell will be gone!
