There are a few things you should never do with an ozone generator. But, there is one crazy idea that we hear and see being promoted by self-appointed Internet gurus. While it sounds like a good idea, it runs absolutely contrary to the science of ozone. So, let's first look at the science.
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 quickly 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.
HEY!!! If your ozone generator is losing power, broken, and on its last legs, you need to hear about the XPRO-1000, XPRO-2000, or XPRO-4000. We warranty our system with a lifetime warranty.
There are modest safety precautions when using an ozone generator. Personal protection equipment or PPE that is recommended for those in the treatment area of ozone. Fortunately, the rules are pretty simple. The FDA has said that ozone is generally recognized as safe (GRAS), this presupposes that safety measures are followed.
It seems that one of the most common questions is "How long should I run my ozone generator?" There are simply too many variables to be precise about the duration of ozone treatment. We take huge exception to the Internet ozone promoters who suggest people buy their over-hyped ozone generator and "Crush the Problem" with a massive dose of ozone.
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.
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.
If you want the basics on how ozone generators are measured, I am going to make to as simple as possible for everyone. There is a lot of hype about ozone generators and the amount of ozone they produce. You will see some small ozone generators that skillfully hide their output behind model numbers and bold claims of what they can do.
Some people love the after-smell of ozone. It tells people that the building is clean and sanitized. Others don't like the ozone smell so much. Don't worry, the ozone smell will generally disappear in 12-24 hours depending on the length of the treatment.
Everyone has likely seen commercials promoting small machines that will sanitize CPAP equipment. The obvious concern is that the constant use of CPAP machines for nighttime breathing issues. Obviously, constantly breathing through these machines leaves a film that allows bacteria to multiply.
