Why Use Ozone?

Ozone for mold and odors

 

What's that Smell? Removing Household Odors

Ozone can help eliminates dog and cat odors has well as household odors

Some odors are easy to identify and simple to eliminate. However, there are those certain kinds of funk that linger longer than an unwanted houseguest (and are even harder to get rid of). In some cases, even the sources of these smells are hard to find. These odors can have a negative effect on household members, but can often be a turn-off to company, too. And if you decide to sell your house, they can actually affect the price you get and your property's marketability!

Clear Air’s  Plan of Attack  

As with anything, going into smell removal turns out better if you have a plan. These are the steps to eliminating simple smells.

Step 1 Find the source of the smell.
Step 2 Remove said source.
Step 3 Clean the offending area.
Step 4 Expose the cleaned area to as much fresh air as possible.

Pet Odors

To reduce odor, most pet owners simply need to vacuum often, clean diligently, and make sure that any "business" done by their animals is promptly removed or diffused. When this isn't enough, there's a good likelihood that the odor is imbedded. Have carpets professionally cleaned several times a year (or in worst case scenarios, replaced). Since carpet holds onto odor like no other flooring, pet owners should consider hard surface flooring like tile or wood in areas where pets frequent.

Shower Drain Odors

Some drain odors can be eliminated by using a product designed to break up gunk and film on the inside of your plumbing (available at any hardware store) or having the buildup physically removed. Others are far more difficult to get rid of.

Mold and Mildew Odors

That organic, musty smell that creeps its way into many a home can be one of the most difficult to identify and remove. Often caused by mold or mildew in a place you cannot readily see, removal and replacement of materials is sometimes required to eliminate mold or mildew growth. Once the source of the odor is found and eliminated, adding a dehumidifier or additional ventilation (as well as fixing any leaks that may have contributed to the growth in the first place) can leave your space smelling wonderfully neutral!

Mold removal can also be a benefit to your health in addition to giving a space a needed smell boost

Basement Odor

As one of the stalest, most stagnant smelling spaces in the home, basement odors can often be caused by mold or mildew (and can be removed in a similar fashion). However, even basements that do not have moisture issues can still smell stale because there is simply not enough circulation. A ventilation system can certainly do the trick, here, but if you have basement windows, an easier solution might be to open them up periodically and air the space out!

Ozone can help Kills Mold spores which can affect Allergies and Asthma

This could be an effective treatment. A drug-free, rapid and painless relief from the nasal congestion, runny nose, sneezing, itching, and teary eyes that characterize Allergic Rhinitis, (Hay Fever).

Why Ozone

This high level of ozone is especially ideal in treating  homes and buildings with fire damage where it is well  known that remediation is best achieved with high  concentrations of ozone.

Typical Applications

Ozone applications include fire and flood restoration  by eliminating odors from smoke, mold, mildew and  sewage. Other applications include use in the home,  hotel, farm, motel and car to accomplish destruction  of odors from tobacco smoke, urine, body odors, pets  and farm animals, mildew, diapers, formaldehyde,  garbage and application of new paint and use by  commercial establishments to accomplish destruction  of odors found in restaurants and associated garbage  storage areas, bars, pool halls, beauty shops, dry  cleaners, veterinary offices and enclosed dog  kennels.

Application Process

The ozone application process requires first removing people, pets, plants and items containing natural rubber from an enclosed area.

Unique Deactivation Cycle

The activo features both an activation cycle and a  unique fully automated deactivation cycle. This  deactivation cycle rapidly clears an area of ozone  after the ozone treatment is completed, minimizing  the time that an air restoration professional must  spend performing air treatment. The activo complies  with UL, FCC and CSA standards.

Caution

Ozone can adversely affect indoor plants, and pets they should be removed while treatment is on going.

Technology

Our technology is based on unique concept of double-dielectric-barrier (micro-) discharges (dbdd) in air. The core unit generates controlled non thermal-equilibrium plasma, where electrons are excited to high and well defined energy levels. This results in high energy density and high homogeneity in the spatial distribution of the plasma. Due to the very high electrical efficiency of these core units (probably the highest recorded in the world), a large portion of the input power is transferred directly to electron excitations rather than to heating up the gas. In addition to this, these core units are highly reliable.
