While so many people, including IAQ professionals, are wondering how to reach into the explosive market created by COVID-19, Maria recently interviewed the CEO of Delos about their efforts to treat shool classrooms. Delos makes a variety of air filtration systems, and have placed 100,000 of their air filtration units into classrooms.
Misinformation is to the Internet like rumors fly around about in high school. The truth may be quite different from the rumor, but if it is repeated often enough ... the lie starts to sound like the truth. And, I have heard more than my fair share of half-truths and malicious rumors about ozone.
I find it interesting that people think of the natural or eco-safe solutions are less effective than the chemical products. This is probably due to the massive amount of advertising and extreme hype of competitive advertizing.
As many already know, NOAI has promoted ozone for more than a decade. Ozone is found in nature ann it is eco-friendly, good for our well-being, and a sustainable resource. Frankly, ozone is a force for good in our world although it can be a prblem when misunderstood and misused. As an invisible and natural part of life, we can overlook the value and benefits of ozone.
Just to set the stage, all non-medical corona ozone generators use metal screens or plates to produce ozone from the air. Ozone exists for a short while as O3, then quickly returns to the normal, breathable O2. To achieve a sanitizing level, the ozone generator should run for about an hour and reach a certain PPM level in the room. People and pets cannot be in the treatment area during the treatment as ozone is a known respiratory irritant.
Our office has received numerous calls about whether ozone kills the coronavirus. It is well-known that ozone does kill pathogens (bacteria and viruses). Ozone is a non-chemical solution that can be applied to treat large or small areas and it reaches all surfaces with a nominal treatment. This does not mean there is no need to properly clean the area, but ozone can be an augment to a sanitizing program.
We are fielding calls from churches about how best to sanitize the facility. This is good news, and we hope to shed some important light on the subject.
After the review of the 15/30G MAXX from www.allozone.com, we have found that this design is well ahead of the curve. Most ozone generators are 80% the same with differences in case and quality, or lack of quality, in their construction. NOAI is pleased to support the best practices and best products for professional remediation services.
