There are 2 definitions of ozone.

A good type of ozone, is that of naturally created very high up in the atmospheric layer that is over 40 kilometers above the ground, protecting the earth from the harms of ultra violet radiation.

A bad type of ozone or ground level ozone, are those toxic gas under the atmosphere that is floating in the air 2 kilometers above the ground. Bad ozone comes from numerous sources, some of which occurred by nature under the acceleration of lights, and other sources, such as, carbon monoxide from car exhaust pipes, power generators, heat generators, production process of the industrial plants, etc.

The definition of “Ozone” has been misunderstood by many, as “a clean air, the more the ozone, the better and cleaner the air, the more of it you inhale in, the more refreshing it feels.” Fact is, ozone is a gas with a bit of fishy smell and has no color, yet is toxic to the human’s respiratory system and reacts quickly to other compounds in the environment, not the air we should inhale into the lungs.

Ozone generating machine generates a low concentration of ozone, which will not be enough to damage the respiratory system.

UV Light Ozone Generator

UV light will create ozone from atmospheric oxygen at short wavelengths of less than 254 nanometers (nm). When UV light hits an O2 (oxygen molecule), it splits homo-lytically to form to oxygen free radicals. There oxygen free radicals then finds other oxygen molecules to form O3 (ozone).

The free oxygen atoms dispersed in the air are highly reactive and will oxidize almost anything (including viruses, bacteria, organic and inorganic compounds) in contacts. Ozone disinfection does not produce any harmful residues, and all the residual ozone will be converted back to oxygen within a short time. Ozone is therefore considered as an environmentally friendly disinfectant.

No. If ozone is applied properly it destroys (oxidizes) the source of the odor. However, in the case of mildew (mold) the odor will return if you are unable to get rid of the moisture that is harboring. Treatment times may vary depending on the strength of the odor but 98% of ozone treatments are successful.
