What Is the Best Method For Complete Residential Odor Removal?

Category: Cleaning

Ozone is a colorless gas that can be formed by electrical discharges or ultraviolet light. It has strong oxidizing properties, meaning that it can break down other molecules by combining them with oxygen.

In the restoration industry, we use this powerful substance to eliminate unwanted odors at your home or business. In this article, we will explain how ozone works on common smelly problems, and how we can use it to help you with safe, complete residential odor removal. 

What Is Ozone and How Does It Remove Odors?

Ozone is a gas that is also called activated oxygen or trivalent oxygen. It is created naturally in our environment, typically through electricity or ultraviolet radiation – including that from the sun. It is created when one of these forces splits oxygen molecules into two separate atoms. The loose atom then attaches itself to an oxygen molecule, recombining to create ozone.

Ozone can be used to purify water and eliminate odors. Unlike other deodorizing methods, ozone actually oxidizes, or destroys the molecules making up the unwanted smells. It reacts with contaminants in both the air and on all types of surfaces, including furniture, carpet, walls, and ceilings. It can penetrate all of the same materials that the odor penetrated, ensuring thorough elimination. Think about how good the air smells after a lightning storm, or how wonderful sun-dried sheets smell – this is ozone at work. 

Unwanted Odors That Ozone Can Help With

If you have a stinky situation at your home or business, ozone may be a solution to consider as a part of your odor removal process. The most common odor issues we encounter are cigarette smoke and the smoke smell after a fire.

Smoke smells from cigarettes or fire 

Whether it is from cigarettes, marijuana, a fireplace or a damaging fire, smoke smells can be particularly hard to eliminate. Ozone is a powerful oxidizer that will react with residual smoke particles, breaking them down and removing smoke smells at the source. 

Get Professional Help With Odor Removal in Minneapolis 

In order for an ozone treatment to be effective at eliminating the issues listed above, ozone needs to be generated in a space at a high level. These effective levels of ozone are not safe to breathe, and should be managed by a professional. At Green Clean, we know how to safely use our advanced ozone generators in order to provide Minnesota homeowners with the clean, fresh results you want. 

After the ozone treatment at your property is complete, we will be sure that enough time passes for the ozone to revert to oxygen, and we will circulate fresh air through. One of the best things about ozone treatments is that oxygen is the only residue left behind, not a bunch of smelly synthetic air fresheners. 

Ozone transforms the molecules that make up the offending odors – eliminating them rather than simply covering them up.
