How Does Ozone Work?

First of all, ozone is just a different formulation of normal oxygen.  O2 is the normal configuration of two ozone atoms.  Through a simple process, an ozone generation breaks the bonds of O2 to cause a temporary bonding of three oxygen atoms.  The extra oxygen atom is very loose and will easily disconnect and adhere to other compounds.  By adding an oxygen atom at the molecular level, the result is something called oxidation.

Is Chlorine Dioxide Safe?

We have used chlorine dioxide (CLO2) many times.  We have used the stabilized liquid for spraying, and the non-stabilized tablets in trays.  Basically, chlorine dioxide works, and it is a rival to ozone.  So, the comparisons made here are meant as helpful information, not to slam one or the other.  Ozone and chlorine dioxide are both considered "Oxidizers".  That means both produce available oxygen atoms into the air or spray to oxidize the target threats.

Sick Home & Sick People find Solutions

As a service that deals with mold, odors, pullulation, and diseases that abound in the environment, we know that part of the equation is the health and stability of the people who hire us.  Of late, we have been recommending the use of CBD products as a aid to those we encounter.  Our personal experience with CBD has been remarkable, and we feel that this is the non-medicine way to stabilize out-of-balance lives.

Too Much Ozone for the Job

There is an occasional issue that we hear about at the offices of the National Ozone Association, and that is over-treatment of house, room, or building during an ozone treatment.  Think of ozone as you might any remediation or cleaning product.  You can use too little, or too much.  Think of cleaning with something as simple as water.  Cleaning a very dirty floor with too little water will make mud.
