Studies have shown that the first impression of a home can be critical to the decision to buy. As little as the first five minutes can flip the mental switch between "Like / Don't Like" the home being shown by the realtor.
It occurred to me that amid all the bravado for professional ozone generators, it might be a good idea to explain how a professional ozone generator is built. I realized that in many ways, the quality of the ozone generator is in the attention to small details.
When a flood happens, a fast response is critical. This is not a time for half measures. The first task is to get the water out as quick as possible. The longer the water is in the building, the worse things get. So, run to the hardware or rental store and get a pump that will get the job done quickly.
Then, get rid of everything that is ruined once you have documented the damage for insurance. You will find that trying to salvage goods is more trouble and money than buying new or used replacements.
The proper use of an ozone generator depends in part on the amount of output of the unit. Some units emit only a small amount of ozone, so it is only a small factor in the overall air mixture in the room or home. These fall into the area of an air treatment/purification system.
It would seem very retro to think that button hook shoes are just as good as the Velcro tennis shoes of today. Some won't even remember button hook shoes. So, I have included a picture for reference. Between, button hook shoes and Velcro-type shoes eras, everyone used shoestrings.
Yes, ozone is a respiratory irritant when ozone levels exceed .05 PPM; and with that said, every professional ozone person requires all people and pets to vacate the building during the treatment. This negates nearly every health concern about using ozone.
The growing interest in ozone for restoration and remediation services is grounding in good science. Ozone is a non-toxic tool that can treat a variety of restoration problems. Ozone is used for the following reasons:
Your sense of smell is one of the most primitive and innate senses you possess. Without overt awareness, your sense of smell is a huge part of the decision-making process. We are attracted, revolted, or ambivalent to many things based purely by smells. While other senses play a part as well, smell has a huge impact on everything.
Anyone who knows about electronics will agree that "Heat is the Enemy of Electrical Systems." Well, one of the reasons that ozone generators break down is the buildup of heat. The transformers and ozone plates in an ozone generator can produce a lot of heat. This causes breakdowns much faster than they should happen. Ozone is also known to "Age Components".
