Now that the innane policies of a freckless administration has basically sanctioned the influx of people from ebola-threatened countries, we now have yet another threat the to integrity of this country. It may be that this disease will spreads regardless of smart disease management policies, but why invite the problem into our midst,
Now that summer in here, we are getting a good number of questions about humidity and ozone production. It is true that high humidity (over 60%) will cut the ozone production of any corona-type ozone generator. However, this is not a critical issue for most because nearly all ozone treatments are being done in air conditioned environments.
There are a number of common questions about ozone and how ozone is applied for an odor problem, for sanitizing, and mold treatment. We also field questions about OZONE SHOCK and types of generators needed for proper ozone treatments. Of course, much of the confusion comes from the Internet gurus who are actually boasting about their ozone generators for sale.
If you read the first section of this mini-lesson, you now have some understanding of PPM for ozone generators. If not, click here to read "How Much Ozone is Enough?" This is a very important aspect of the ozone business, and critical to making choices for an ozone machine. The industry suffers from the hype-meisters who use YouTube or Google Adwords to grab the interest of ill-informed people to buy their equipment.
Maybe you are enamored with ozone because it does so many good things, but feel as though you are spending way too much time explaining and defending ozone to people. But let me repeat something that I will emphasis throughout 2014. "Ozone is a Tool, not a Service" Our service is better understood as REMEDIATION.
There are a couple of ways to attack an odor problem. The first of which is to look at the cleaning process being used. This should be more than general cleaning. Smells come from decomposition of organic residue that is slowing decaying. Old pet urine deposits, spills, cooking, smoking, and general living in a home leaves a "Footprint" that can literally embed itself into every part of the home.
The Internet is filled with advice. Some good, some of it is terrible. However, random comments or blogs can literally say anything and make it sound like they really know what they are talking about. We have placed several reports on this topic in the Business Section of the National Ozone Association website. They are very interesting reading, because these are experts with degrees who have conducted very reliable projects.
Whenever someone new hears about ozone, they seem driven to repeat the Boogie Man: story that "ozone is toxic and is a serious health concern." This comes from an EPA statement based on a study that showed that ozone can cause respiratory irritation. It is even speculated that there is a lethal level of ozone although no one has been known to die of ozone. So, let's take all that one face value because it has some common experience that we can recognize.
Cat urine is a constant problem. All the focus seems to be on the kitty litter box, which is an obvious maintenance issue. Cats and dogs will "spray" to mark their territory. Dog and cat odors aren't always about the pet needing to go to the bathroom. Obviously, male cats are worse about this habit. If you take your pet out, you will notice this habit as they use this scent to let others know they are in the area.
Those seeking to go into the ozone business always run into the one common question. "What kind of ozone generator should I Buy?" There is a growing sense that buying a big machine is best, but let's think that through a bit. While it is true in the odor removal and sanitizing business that "Bigger is Better" there are more things to consider when it comes to your purchases. Basically, the volume of ozone output (measured in grams (g) or milligrams (mg) is diluted into the air.
