Ozonation is a safe and effective method for deodorization
1. Pre-clean the target and remove possible odor sources.
2. Bring in the ozonator and connect it to power supply.
3 Set the timer and turn on the unit. Time required varies depending on the situation ranging from 4 hours to 24 hours. If the desired result was not achieved, the process is repeated.
4. After treatment, ventilate the area well.

How ozonation works?
Ozone is an triatomic oxygen molecule that eliminates odors and molds due to its strong oxidizing power. It has the ability to break down carbon bonds in cell membranes, for instance lipids in bacterial cell membranes and carbon-carbon double bonds. When the bond is broken, the cells die and the bacteria can no longer replicate.

Mostly affected by ozone are the anaerobic bacteria. It will also kill mold, removing the odor and its cause at the same time. As a result of ozonation, organic odors are oxidized into water vapor and carbon dioxide.

Ozone is produced from oxygen, so no additional chemicals are used in ozonation. However, staying in the space where powerful ozonation is in progress is not allowed, for prolonged exposure to ozone can irritate eyes and mucous membranes.
Ozone is natural
Ozone is a natural molecule that is found in many places on Earth. It is a naturally occurring trioxygen, which is generated when lightning strikes, for instance. Ozone freshens the air and breaks down foul-smelling gases, eg. methane (a by-product of rotting), turning them into odorless, natural gases such as carbon dioxide, which in turn is needed by plants and produced by animals during respiration. Without ozone we would be surrounded by smells and harmful gases.

The ozonation carried out by an ozonator is actually nature's own disinfection, just amplified and locally performed. Ozonator generates extra oxygen for malodorous hydrocarbons to react with. Animal droppings, for instance, produce ammonia, which is a smelly and toxic compound. Ozone breaks down the ammonia molecules, creating water and carbon dioxide.
