Ozone is a strong gas that forms naturally from the oxygen we breathe. Ozone in our atmosphere forms directly from air and sunlight. Ozone is the most powerful oxidizing agent available and is 52% more powerful than chlorine in disinfecting water or air. Ozone has shown remarkable antibacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal activity. This process very effectively deodorizes, disinfects, and destroys many of the pathogens and fumes that poison the indoor air. Ozone can also be reproduced scientifically in safe, controlled quantities. Ozone continuously applied in slightly elevated concentrations is an extremely effective, safe, and economical method of reducing common household bacteria, fungi, molds, mildew, and viruses on surfaces in our rooms, kitchens, bathrooms, and in the air we breathe. By oxidizing the byproducts of decay, Ozone rapidly eliminates the allergens from dust mites and other arthropods. Ozone can also eliminate harmful chemical gases that are emitted from plywood, carpet, glue, paint, many indoor cleaners, etc..
If ozone was not safe, we would not be able to go outside and breathe the air, especially during sunshine, a thunderstorm, lightning, or after the rain. The fact is, when used responsibly, ozone is very safe just like oxygen and very beneficial to our planet and all of us that live here. To prove this obvious fact, many scientific studies have been done by experts on ozone, and all confirm the safety and beneficial aspects of ozone over and over again.
Ozone is now known to be natures most powerful disinfectant and oxidant and can even kill microbial contaminates like E-coli, Candida, Listeria, Staph, Salmonella, Giardia and Cryptosporidium more effectively than dangerous conventional disinfectants like chlorine or bleach. In fact, ozone kills E-coli more than 3,000 times faster than chlorine. When ozone is created, it seeps into crevices, carpets, drapes, furniture, under beds, in closets, on countertop surfaces and other places where normal air currents are minimal or even non-existent. When the extra oxygen atom splits off from the ozone molecule, two things happen: disinfection and oxidation. This happens as these atoms quickly destroy the bacteria, mold, mildew and odor as soon as they come into contact. The end result is clean breathable oxygen. Whether it's harmful fumes, chemical gases, odors, or any other scented air pollutant, ozone destroys virtually all airborne and water type pollutants!
