Ozone is one of the most effective ways of removing allergens, mould and odours resulting from pets, fires, floodings and repairs.
Ozonation is used for:- removing mites, mould spores, allergens, insects, mildew,
- disinfecting public places, kindergartens, schools,
- disinfecting ventilation, removing mildew from air conditioning,
- neutralising odours,
- sterilising vehicles, boats, and aircraft.
What is ozonation:
It is one of the most effective methods for removing allergens, mould, and the unwanted odours that linger after pets, fires, flooding, and renovation. Using high-performance, professional air ozonators we remove odours and disinfect rooms, air vents and air conditioning both in buildings and vehicles. It is especially recommended for densely populated locations, such as hotels, offices, medical care units, hospitals, schools, kindergartens. The duration of a standard service is from 15 to 300 minutes, depending on the air volume of the building and the cause of contamination. The service is completely chemical-free. To maximise the efficiency of the service, the temperature of the room during ozonation should be a few degrees higher than the usual room temperature. This reduces the risk of unpleasant odours reappearing.
What does ozone remove?Stale cigarette smoke - contains 4600 chemical compounds which, on contact with ozone, oxidise into simpler compounds (carbonic chain disruption) that are less harmful and do not have a pungent odour.
Fungus spores - causing the walls to mould in addition to musty odours, skin, oral cavity, and eyes diseases. Ozone destroys the mycelium, eliminating not just the fungus, but also the spores and diaspores, making the effect longer lasting.
Mites - causing asthma attacks, allergies, exhaustion. Mites are saprophytes, i.e. organisms that feed on dead, flaked organic matter, so they are inevitable everywhere where people frequently spend time. An increase in ozone concentration of over 0.05 ppm kills these organisms.
Microorganisms - causing bacterial infections, inflammation, bacterial diseases, food putrefaction, unpleasant rotting odours. Anaerobes are killed on contact with just residual amounts of ozone. Aerobes, on the other hand, have a resistance to ozone similar to that of simple fungi.
Pollen - causing allergies, eye, throat, nose irritation. The allergens contained in pollen lose their undesired properties under the influence of active oxygen.
Carbon monoxide - produced during incomplete combustion of, among others, natural gas. It is both extremely toxic and odourless, making it very dangerous. It binds strongly with haemoglobin (more strongly than oxygen) blocking the transport of oxygen in the body. With ozone it oxidises into the much less dangerous carbon dioxide.
Annular compounds and their derivatives - these are especially dangerous when their fumes are inhaled over a long period of time. They are cancerogenic, cause faster decomposition of the blood cells, and negatively affect the nervous system. They are used as organic solvents for paints and varnishes, among other uses.
Ozone causes the carbonic ring to disrupt, whereby the produced simple compounds oxidise into carbon dioxide, water, and the oxides of the derivative components.
The devices we use:
Our basic devices for ozonation are the German company Trotec's Airozon Supercracker. These are high-performance odour neutralisers that generate up to 12,000 mg/h of ozone. Moreover, our ozone generators have filters that deactivate ozone which enables you to use the room immediately after ozonation. Ozone is generated in these devices without using chemicals, so it is environmentally friendly. The generated ozone decomposes to oxygen after a short time.
