CLEANING OF OCCUPIED AREAS
When using an
ozone generator for air purification it is recommended using as little
as ozone as possible to create cleaner air. The ozone level will depend
upon the size of the area and number of possible smokers & the severity
of the odor problem.
is a completely different use of ozone from a High
Ozone Shock Treatment
that is designed for removing a serious odor such as mold.
The unit should
be placed on the opposite side of the room away from the occupants.
Ozone is heavier
than air so mounting the unit up high seems to work well with this procedure.
We sell an optional
remote control kit to make this easier. Using a fan to properly distribute
the ozone throughout the room is recommended.
Adjust ozone generator
so that the problem odor can not be detected. Begin with the ozone generator
on low setting and work the ozone level up slowly. Ozone will begin by
having a fresh, sweet, rain type odor. If too much ozone is present the
air will begin to have a bleachy, acrid smell. This means that the ozone
level is set to high for air purification and should be at a lower ozone
setting. As the odor is being removed from the area the ozone level should
be turned down.
In many instances
the ozone may only need to be on for a couple of minutes before the area
if freshened by the ozone and the generator can then be turned off.
If ozone is set
for 40 smokers and 30 leave the room , then the ozone level should be turned
down. If too much ozone is used it may possibly cause a sore throat or
headache. If on the lowest level the ozone is detected to still be strong,
the "burst timer" may be used to lower the level even further.
The ozone generator
may also be hooked into the air handling system in order to ensure proper
is a completely different use of ozone from High
Ozone Shock Treatments that are designed
for removing a serious odor such as mold.
