Don’t Let Hurricane and Flood Damage Leave Nasty Odors Behind

It seems like severe weather has been dominating the news cycle as of late. Hurricanes Harvey,  Irma and Maria have caused unprecedented damage in the Caribbean, Texas, Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas.  Unfortunately, the road to recovery will be a long one for those hit the hardest.

 

The type of property damage that occurs during weather disasters obviously varies. However, we can say one thing with a high degree of confidence. Storm related property damage often causes putrid odors that overtake homes and businesses.

 

Using an ozone generator or air purifier to remove odors and help with flood damage cleanup is a valuable option. The odor that occurs after water damage can happen as soon as a day or two after the flood damage.  The smell that you have to deal with will likely be mildew and/or mold.

Of course improving the air quality after severe weather is too tough a job for cans of aerosol spray. There are far too many odors and airborne particulate matter that may develop as a result of storm damage. Thus, it is best to attack them all naturally so no additional, potentially offensive items are introduced into the environment.

An ozone generator is a device that can get rid of the particulates that have been placed in the air.  They are specifically designed to remove odors associated with mold, mildew, bacteria, sewage and all of the other nastiness that washes into properties during flooding situations. However, they come in a variety of sizes. So it’s vital to choose one that is compatible with the size of the flood damaged area.

Negative Ionizers May Help Banish a Case of the Blahs

Do you have a history of coming down with frequent episodes of the seasonal blahs? If so, you might want to contemplate investing in negative ionizers. Negative ionizers, as you might have assumed, are designed to generate negative ions. Naturally found in the earth’s atmosphere, they are capable of performing many beneficial tasks. For example, studies have shown that they may help to banish the blues in some individuals.

Learned researchers have actually been making such claims about negative ions for several years now. One of the early studies released on the topic appeared in a January 1995 issue of the Journal for Alternative Complementary Medicine. Others appeared in a 1998 issue of the Archives of General Psychiatry, a February 2006 issue of Monitor on Psychology and an August 2012 issue of Psychological Medicine. Essentially, they all indicate that the negative ions produced by negative ionizers can have a surprisingly positive impact on a person’s overall mood.

As such, people that suffer from various mood disorders are increasingly starting to incorporate the machines into their at home treatment routines. In addition, there are even institutions like the Oregon State University that are adding negative ionizers to their list of student services.

With all of that said, you may want to talk to your family psychologist or physician to see if negative ionizers may be appropriate for your particular situation. If your personal doctor agrees, our team of ozone experts can help you select the right negative ionizer for your needs.

Using Ozone Technology to Permanently Remove Mold and Mildew

Ozone technology is the only way to eliminate odors associated with mold and mildew.

Many people all over the world suffer from problems with mold and mildew odor in their homes, and are often in search of a way to rid the house of this unforgiving and difficult problem. When you get mold in different areas of the house, this then leads to mildew, which can leave a nasty odor in the area.  Mold is essentially a fungus and is found in areas where there is little ventilation and a warm, damp surrounding. Mildew is basically mold which has attached itself to some kind of material, mainly fabric and is usually found on carpets, rugs, clothes, towels and linens.

Mold and mildew odors are a problem in many households and is difficult to get rid of completely. As well as mold and mildew odor being unpleasant to our senses, it can also be dangerous to people with allergies as it contains irritants and toxins which can be harmful. In most cases of mold and mildew odor, traditional deodorizers and cleaning equipment doesn’t get rid of it completely, it is important to make sure that all of the molecules and bacteria are removed; the best way to achieve this is by using ozone technology to eliminate mold and mildew completely.

Ozone is created through a device which naturally creates ozone molecules from the air and then pushes them out into the area of the offending mold and mildew odor. The ozone molecule which is made up of three oxygen molecules will then separate and attach itself to the mold molecules and neutralize them. Once the oxygen atom has attached, the mold molecule is stripped of its personal odor characteristics and is dispersed as a neutral atom. Ozone is a very efficient air cleaner, as well as being proficient in odor control, as it is able to purify the air around it in a green and natural way, without releasing strong odors and chemicals into the air instead. The equipment that generates ozone is becoming more widely available and is a great investment as it takes care of the mold and mildew odor forever rather than just masking it for the immediate future.

The technology also has major health benefits as it works as a brilliant air purifier. This is why ozone is often referred to as the world’s natural air filter, which makes the air cleaner and healthier for people who suffer from allergies and irritations in their lives.

The Queen of QueenAire: A Note From the President, Susan Duffy

SusanHeadShot

 Welcome to the Ozone Experts blog!  First let me thank you for taking the time to check us out.  My name is Susan Duffy; I am the president and owner of the Newaire, Queenaire, and Rainbowair lines of ozone products.  I personally have been selling this technology for over 20 years, and while I hate to age myself, I am very proud of the \fact that I am still here selling a product that I have spent a big part of my life traveling from state to state touting the benefits of the technology to anyone who will listen to me.

The business has moved with me and my three children three times over the years and today operates out of our new 6600 sq/ft warehouse in my hometown in upstate NY right on the beautiful St. Lawrence River.  With my daughter Nicole Plumley now handling the day to day operations, I am happy to say that the business runs smoothly and continues to grow as ozone technology becomes more main stream and more and more users spread the word as to the magic of ozone.  There simply is nothing more effective on the face of this earth for eliminating odors, in fact ozone is how mother nature cleans the face of the earth.

For those of you that still don’t know what ozone is or how it works, simply put, it is the “fresh” in the air that blows through your windows and makes everything smell nice.  It is used by hotels, car dealers, apartment owners, nursing homes, schools, municipalities, grocery stores, restoration companies, homeowners and on and on…the common thread being the destruction of odor….naturally, permanently and completely.  For the most part the product has been used commercially so for a lot of people, ozone is still a mystery. 

I write this blog in the hopes that we can spread the word, to help homeowners who are struggling with the cleanup after flood or smoke damage or a visit from a feisty rodant; it seems there is no end to devastation many homeowners are faced with these days.  Cleaning up is a major undertaking and for many just when you thought you were done, there is that lingering odor to remind you of the mess you had.  Restoration companies have used this technology for decades to clean up after a disaster. 

If you have a story pertaining to an overwhelming odor that you have experienced, please share it with us!  I look forward to reading your stories.
