Odor Removal and Deodorization
HOW AN OZONE GENERATOR WORKS
SERVPRO of Pleasanton/Dublin have tools when it comes to removing odors from your home or business.
One popular machine is called an OZONE GENERATOR.
Ozone is a highly effective natural sterilizer that can inactivate practically any organic contaminant on contact. As it is a highly reactive gas, Ozone continually reverts to its most stable form by releasing one of its atoms to turn back into Oxygen (from O3 to O2). As the additional Oxygen atom breaks free, it will oxidize any organic matter it touches, killing organic contaminants at a cellular level. Essentially, Ozone disrupts the cellular structure by rupturing the cell wall, a process referred to as ‘cell lysing’.
By intelligently controlling atmospheric Ozone concentration, SERVPRO of Pleasanton/Dublin can safely decontaminate any given area, as the additional Oxygen atom in Ozone oxidizes and inactivates a broad spectrum of pathogens.
Our sanitation process is highly effective for treating the air and surfaces in any area through the eradication of:
Mold – Fungus
Once the equipment is set up the operator leaves the area and starts the sanitation process remotely. The Ozone diffuses into the area and engulfs all exposed surfaces and penetrates hidden areas and fabric items.
The Ozone rich atmosphere is sustained for a short period of time, typically one hour, during which time all bacteria and other unwanted elements are destroyed.
When the sanitation process is complete, Ozone rapidly reverts into Oxygen.
We have the training and equipment to identify and eliminate these offensive odors. By identifying the cause of the odor, and determining the conditions where it contacts surfaces, the odor can often be removed over time without a trace. Our technicians have access to several odor removal products capable of penetrating surfaces to neutralize an unpleasant odor thoroughly.
The science of identifying and eliminating odors can be a tricky thing, so give us a call, and leave the restoration to us.
