Top 5 Must-know Ozone Generator Facts for Homeowners

The investment in an ozone generator is the beginning of a practice to eliminate odor naturally.

queenaire-ozone-generators-family-croppedThe investment in an ozone generator is the beginning of a practice to eliminate odor naturally. For homeowners who do not want to release noxious chemicals and heavily scented droplets into the air they breathe, this technology is the right choice. How do you know that this form of stink removal is a good option for you?
  1. Ozone removes odors at the molecular level. Unlike sprays that seek to combat one smell with another, ozone succeeds at getting rid of the contaminants that cause the smells. Ozone reacts with the molecules that cause a variety of odors and destroys them.
  2. Generators curtail dust. The typical ozone generator not only produces ozone but also ions that cause the particles making up dust in your home to clump together. Now heavier than air, the dust falls to the ground. Enjoy breathing cleaner air while simply vacuuming up the dust.
  3. Ozone is safe. The Food and Drug Administration agrees that typical ozone found in your home qualifies for the GRAS (generally recognized as safe) rating. In large quantities, this rating does not apply. If you can smell it, it is probably too much.
  4. You can adjust ozone levels. Maintaining a fresh air smell with ozone requires very low quantities. When you need to eliminate odor from today’s cooking experiment, the mold smell in the basement and the stink from the forgotten garbage in the garage, you probably need to increase the ozone level there. For particularly bad stinks, simply increase the ozone and leave the area for a bit.
  5. Broad range of products. You have options when shopping for an ozone generator. A QT Storm can treat up to 10,000 cubic feet and release between 3 mg of ozone per hour and 300 mg of ozone per hour. A Rainbowair 250 Series II machine treats spaces measuring up to 2,500 square feet and offers an ozone output of up to 250 mg per hour. A Newaire Plugin Series I model stays out of the way and treats rooms up to 500 square feet.

Consider Odor Removal for Your Home before You Host a Family Gathering

rainbowair-activator-ozone-generators-family-300
Although you might use air fresheners and light candles on a regular basis, these methods will only cover-up bad odor, which still leaves you with a home that has odor issues. Instead of relying on the creation of new smells to get your home ready for hosting a family gathering, you should eliminate the root of the problem by investing in an ozone deodorizer that will remove the odor for good.

Get Ready for an Enjoyable Gathering

It can be tough to enjoy a family gathering when your home does not smell appealing. Since you should be spending a decent amount of time on preparation, you should not pass up making your home a pleasant place to be. It simply comes down to understanding that the odor in your home matters.

Make Sure Your Guests are Happy

While you might be able to handle a not-so-desirable odor in your home, you should not force this odor upon your guests. It is best to get rid of odors when you have family members staying at your home for several days, which will improve the experience for both you and your guests.

Feel Confident in Your Hosting

Taking the time to find a solution for odor removal will give you the confidence you need to host a family gathering with confidence. If you end up loving the responsibility of hosting, your ability to impress your guests and confidence in your hosting can have you hosting more family gatherings in the future.

Keep Your House Smelling Fresh All Winter

newaire-plugin
Winter is a difficult time for most people, not just because of the difficulty of shoveling driveways or driving on icy roads. Cold air prompts most people to leave their doors and windows open for as little time as possible. While this does keep heating bills down, it makes the air anything but pleasant. Any other time of year, bad smells in a house can be eliminated simply by opening a window for a few minutes. In winter, this just isn’t an option. Some consumers will opt for scented candles, but this is a temporary solution at best since it merely replaces one odor with another. There is, however, a way you can improve your air quality without freezing yourself or running up your heating bill.

Ozone Experts makes state-of-the-art air purifiers that can leave your house smelling as fresh as the outdoors. Our products work by creating ozone, which doesn’t mask the odors, but actively fights them. Ozone is what gives outdoor air its fresh smell, and is used to purify water. In addition to making your home more breathable in winter–or any time of year–our products also decrease the chances of a home developing mold. Our products are used by restaurants, hospitals, funeral homes, grocery stores, and many other similar businesses to keep their atmosphere pleasant.

Ozone is Proven to Prolong the Shelf Life of Food

newaire-pluginSmall food wholesalers, storage facility operators and restaurant kitchen managers now have the opportunity to use the same technology that giants in the industry have found useful for decades: ozone generators. Ozone is proven to prolong shelf life of food, inhibit mold growth and eradicate bacteria.

Ozone Eradicates Bacteria, Fungi and Viruses

Publishing for “Advances in Food and Nutrition Research” (posted on NCBI), researchers explained that ozone is useful when washing solid food items. Doing so eliminates parasites and bacteria. Examples cited include vegetables as well as fruits. While ozone treatments alone are no panacea, efficiency can be increased by combining the treatment with mechanical agitation that would extricate microorganisms from foods. When you protect your stored fruit from being hospitable to mold growth and parasitic influences, shelf life can be extended.

Prolong Shelf Life of Food by Making Chemistry Work for You

Ripening fruits produce ethylene, which actually speeds up the ripening process. When you put a ripe banana in a paper bag with unripe fruit, you will be surprised at the results after a day. The ethylene helps the other fruit to ripen, too. By understanding this simple chemical reaction, you also know that introducing ozone to the mix – albeit in a cold room environment – can lead to a reduction in ethylene, which therefore slows down the ripening of the fruit. In addition, the anti-microbial properties of ozone make it a strong ally in the long-term storage of root vegetables.

How to Permanently Remove Pet Odors

queenaire-ozone-generators-family-750

Even though one may love animals, pet ownership can come with unique challenges. One of the most common ones among indoor pet owners is the elimination of pet odor.

Pets have natural odors regardless of how well it is groomed and cared for. Cat odor can be particularly troublesome.  In its dry state, cat urine becomes non-soluble salt crystals.  These crystals become embedded into carpet, its padding and the wooden sub-floor beneath the carpet. When humidity is in the air, the cat odor becomes very prominent.  Although usually not as strong, dog urine can also present major odor problems.  Other small mammals and birds have their own distinctive odors that may be difficult to remove.

Many home owners prefer not to use cleaners that contain toxic chemicals. However, most of the cleaning products made to treat pet odors contain potentially harmful ingredients that can put both the pet owners and pets at risk for undesirable side effects. A great way to combat these odors without the risk is by using ozone to attack the odors at their source.

An ozone generator has the potential to not only remove pet odors, but to also remove odors caused by mold, mildew, water damage, fire and other causes. When the odor problem is particularly troublesome, an ozone specialist can perform a concentrated ozone treatment that is extra effective.

If you are interested in exploring the possibilities inherent in using ozone to clear away unpleasant pet odors, or other types of odors, please contact us at your earliest convenience. A helpful associate will be happy to answer your questions.

Remove Particulates from the Air and Increase Your Family’s Comfort

queenaire-thunder-ozone-generator-cropped
During the winter months, the air quality in our homes and offices can really take a nose dive. As a result, many of us may experience breathing problems and have overall difficulty feeling comfortable in our own space. The good news is there are ways to reverse that drop in air quality:

The most effective one is to remove particulates from the environment. Particulate matter can come from a wide variety of sources. Examples include soot from our fireplaces and dust from our HVAC unit’s ductwork. When released into the air, these items can enter into our bodies and cause some very troubling health problems.

For instance, exposure to particulate matter can lead to the development of emphysema and cardiovascular  disease in otherwise healthy individuals. It can also exacerbate existing problems in other individuals. The list of existing problems that can be aggravated by particulates includes, but is not confined to, bronchitis, heart arrhythmia and asthma.

At this point, you may be wondering how to remove particulate matter in the most effective and efficient way. In our experience, the ideal way to take care of that task is to put negative ions to work in your home or office. They will help to remove particulate matter from the air and send it cascading down towards the floor. Once it’s onto the floor, you’ll be able to clean it up with the aid of a powerful, HEPA filter vacuum.

To fully utilize the power of negative ions, we’d suggest investing in an ozone generator. They are designed to purify the air with the aid of ozone and negative ions. We have various units in stock. So there is no doubt that we’ll have an ozone generator on hand that’s capable of improving the air quality in your home or business.

Use Ozone Products to Kill Bacteria in Your Home

rainbowair-activator-ozone-generators-family-300
Kill Bacteria

Many of the unpleasant odors found in your home are actually due to the presence of bacteria or fungi. These unwanted invaders are found in dark, moist recesses such as basements and bathrooms where they wreak havoc on your senses. Many people try to clean with harsh chemicals such as bleach or over-the-counter cleaners, but these just serve to mask the smells. Ozone goes right to the source of the problem by killing bacteria and eliminating the cause immediately.

How Does Ozone Work?

Bacteria are comprised of cells with a cell membrane that is essential to life. Ozone, which is made of three oxygen molecules as opposed to the two molecules in the oxygen we breathe, attacks the cell membrane of bacteria creating a hole in it. The membrane is bombarded repeatedly by the ozone, and it loses its ability to maintain its shape and to contain its internal structures. This leads to cell death within seconds.

Why Should You Use Ozone Products?

Ozone products and technologies are the most powerful oxidizers and disinfectants that are on the market and are reasonably priced. No other commercial disinfectant has the killing power that ozone has. It will eliminate all odors due to bacteria or fungi whether you need it in your basement, kitchen, bathroom, or the whole house. It is especially helpful in multiple-pet households where trapped odors can be a problem.

Top 4 Reasons Why Landlords Need a QT Tornado

queenaire-tornado-ozone-generator-cropped

The QT Tornado is a powerful electronic deodorizer. Rather than attempting to mask offensive odors in your properties with scent heaters or room sprays, these machines quickly eliminate even the most pervasive smells.

Room Sprays vs. the QT Tornado

A room spray is little more than a bottle filled with an artificial scent. When activated, it will release a cloud of the scent into the air. In so doing, the smell – potpourri, vanilla or other aromas – attempts to mask the odors that are already in the air. As anyone who has ever tried to cover up the smell of garbage or boiling cabbage can tell you, some scent combinations are worse than the actual offending odor.

The QT Tornado does not artificially attempt to put a fresh smell into the air. Rather, it releases between 190mg and 625mg of ozone per hour. It treats 4,000 square feet with ease. With a five-year warranty and a variety of convenient timer settings, this machine uses the ozone to react with the smelly contaminants directly. Instead of temporarily covering up a smell, the ozone attacks it at its source on a molecular level. The result is truly fresh air.

Why Landlords Need this Machine

If you have one or more machines – depending on the size of your apartment building – on standby, it is easy to freshen the air in your building.

  1. Garbage cans. When you only have one weekly trash pick-up, garbage cans stored near the building quickly infuse hallways and stairwells with rotting smells. The QT Tornado undoes the damage.
  2. Food odors. While your tenants may enjoy the smell of fried fish, boiling cabbage and similar dishes, prospective renters do not. Always have a fresh air smell in your building no matter what folks are cooking.
  3. Renovating smells. These are the odors associated with paint fumes and adhesive smells. In addition to being unpleasant, they can also cause more sensitive tenants to suffer from headaches and nausea. Prevent your tenants from suffering by eliminating the smells – and helping paints to cure faster! – with ozone.
  4. Smoking. When you allow tenants to smoke in your building, some areas may smell strongly of cigarette, cigar or pipe smoke. Those living right next to a heavy smoker may complain of the constant smoke odor in the hallways. Prevent these complaints by eliminating the odor smell without bothering the smoker or the non-smokers.

It is evident that the Queenaire QT Tornado Ozone Generator is far more effective and much healthier than any scent that comes out of a can. Contact us today for more information on this green product that is proudly made in the USA.
