Ozone generator dangers can be minimal in occupied areas, as long as the ozone concentration remains below the safe level specified by OSHA or the EPA.
At higher concentrations ozone can cause chest pain, coughing, shortness of breath, and throat irritation. Ozone may also worsen chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma and compromise the ability of the body to fight respiratory infections. People vary widely in their susceptibility to ozone. Therefore, you should only run our machines on their low settings, in well ventilated spaces while people and pets are present. Ozone is like many other essentials in life. A little is good, a lot is not. Too much food can make you over weight, too much water can cause drowning, and overdosing on life-saving medications can make you very ill.
In order to totally eliminate any danger from using ozone, do not run our machines in occupied spaces. Utilize the timers available on many of our units, to switch on our ozone generators while you are out of the building and shut them off an hour or so before you return, so the ozone has time to safely dissipate (turn back into oxygen) prior to reoccupying the space.
You may also safely operate our machines on their higher settings in adjacent room as long as the door is shut, or another barrier (plastic sheet) is employed, between the occupied space and the room being treated. Generating ozone in the basement while you occupy the upper floors, is generally not a problem as ozone is heavier than air so it will remain down it the basement.
Ozone generators are ideal for certain specific applications such as:
Killing mold, mildew and other germs can pose an ozone generator danger and should only be done when a room is unoccupied.
The ozone concentration needed to kill mold (shock treatment) is well beyond the level that is safe to breathe. It is similar to fumigating a room in your house for bugs. You wouldn't want to stay in the room breathing those chemicals. Luckily, ozone doesn't smell as bad and doesn't linger as long as those bug killers.
Ozone generators do not remove dust particles from the air, filter the air, or remove cigarette smoke. They do remove smoke odor lingering in the carpet or on the walls and furniture — either from tobacco products or from a fire.
Ozone generators work well in removing odors from automobiles, boats and recreational vehicles. They do not mask odors; ozone generators destroy odors, never to return.
There are two proven ways to get rid of mold and mildew in your home or office.
Ozone generators will also kill the surface mold on any material it contacts.
Ozone is like air, if air can reach the mold, ozone can reach the mold, and kill it, permanently. Neither air, nor ozone can penetrate dry wall, wood, or other non-porous building products. It is difficult for Ozone to get into the padding under carpets, or inside stuffed furniture.
Remember — there are ozone generator dangers, but the dangers can be minimalized by strictly adhering to the cautions and recommendations provided with each of our products.
Please Remember: All Ozone Generators, regardless of manufacturer, are an electronic appliance containing electrical parts and connections. Your generator will become damaged, your warrantee voided, and the ozone output lessened if immersed in water or operated when humidity (moisture in the air) is above 60%. Lowering the humidity can often be accomplished by simply running a dehumidifier or air-conditioner in the room to be treated.
