What is an ozone treatment?
Ozone treatment is the use of the gas ozone (O3) to remove odors, bacteria, and viruses. Your technician will place an ozone generator in your vehicle for a designated amount of time, depending on the strength of the odor. As the gas permeates your car, the odor is neutralized and any bacteria and viruses are killed. Ozone treatments are the best method for removing stubborn odors. As a gas, it can reach inside vents, far under seats, saturate upholstery fibers, and reach all the nooks and crannies that you can’t. Whether you need to remove cigarette odor, pet odors, food odors, chemical odors or mold, or you simply want to restore that fresh "new car" smell, the OdorFree car ozone generator will take care of the problem.
How does ozone work?
Ozone is the most powerful sterilant in the world. Ozone uses the chemical reaction of oxidation to break down unwanted molecules. O3 is an unstable molecule that, when it comes into contact with another molecule of any kind, will destroy it through the process of oxidation. Bacteria and viruses are destroyed when ozone comes into contact with the cell wall and breaks it down on a molecular level, effectively destroying the cell entirely. Ozone is a natural air cleansing agent found in nature (ozone is created during thunderstorms, created by waterfalls, etc.).
