Ozone

Killing Mold With Ozone Generators

Lightning OzoneOne of the tactical weapons in our battle strategy for killing mold and eliminating odors in the home is ozone treatment with the use of ozone generators. We think of it as our “finishing tool.” Many mold removal home services companies in New Hampshire and those that are national skip over this step because it involves additional scheduling time and another return to the site.

At New England remediation services in NH, ozone generators are a valuable asset to completely and thoroughly mitigate mold, as well as permanently removing smoke odors after fire damage. It is a great follow-up process for air duct cleaning as well. Ozone sanitizes the air and penetrates into small cracks and crevices that even our amazing dry ice blasting mold removal tool may not have reached.

Ozone is nature’s purifier. You have seen the effect of ozone if you have ever stepped outside and noticed how clean the air smells after a lightning storm. Simply put, ozone is created when an electrical charge splits the molecules of oxygen (O2), causing the free floating single molecule to attach itself to other O2 molecules, creating “activated oxygen”, or O3. These activated molecules collect and absorb odors in the air and on surfaces. What’s more, the absence of oxygen suffocates and begins to degrade mold as it is a plant that requires oxygen to live.

Nature has been purifying the air we breathe since the beginning of time using lightning and UV light that is filtered through the ozone layer in the atmosphere.

But what about in your home? How can you create a lightning storm or natural UV light in your home to eliminate indoor air pollutants? Air quality in the home can be up to 20 times more toxic than outdoor air, especially during winter months when heating systems run and the windows are shut. Our professional grade ozone generators replicate the electrical process occurring in a lightning storm. After no more than 12 hours of treatment, your home’s air not only smells clean, but it is clean. Harmful airborne pathogens like mold, mildew, and bacteria are in full retreat!

So put away those fancy sprays and carpet powders that only cover up odors and don’t address the root cause. Call us today to introduce the wonders of ozone to your home!
