Just as a refresher from fifth-grade science class, ozone is three oxygen molecules bonded together which makes up the layer that protects the Earth from harmful UV rays. Ozone can also be created when lightning strikes, which helps purify the air. We can harness that purifying power through devices called ozone generators.

What is an Ozone Generator?

Ozone generators produce small lightning reactions that produce ozone (O3) molecules. This actually changes the molecular makeup of the air, purifying it of any smoke molecules that may be present after a fire disaster. 

How Does it Work?

When the ozone machine produces O3, those extra oxygen atoms attach themselves to smoke molecules, resulting in a molecule with a non-offensive odor. The addition of an oxygen atom to a molecule is a process called oxidation. With these machines, we are able to clean anywhere that air can flow, which is why it is so effective in the restoration of smoke-damaged homes or businesses. 

Is it Safe to Use?

Too much ozone can actually damage certain materials such as textiles, leather, rubber, and certain plastics. However, in the hands of a professional, the ozone can be used competently to remove smoke odors without harming your stuff. Our technicians at SERVPRO of Monroe, Randolph & Washington Counties are experts in odor removal and can do just that.
